Digital Public History in the United States

Digital Public History in the United States

Digital history goes, by definition, beyond national frontiers, but can one decipher national specificities in its practices and projects? This chapter explores the birth, development, and institutionalization of digital public history in the United States. Issued from a strong network of digital history practitioners, the success of digital public history in the United States stemmed from its connection with pre-existing public history academic centers and projects.

Digital Personal Memories: The Archiving of the Self and Public History

Digital Personal Memories: The Archiving of the Self and Public History

By providing a facilitated access to data storage, digital technologies seem to make expression and preservation of the self more straightforward. They reconfigure the means and forms of access to data, thus also affecting the relationships and participation of individuals in heritagization and history, and potentially impacting historians. This renews questions that scholars already know well, such as the place of memories in the making of history, and that of self-narratives.

Üble Gerüchte versetzen ukrainische Frauen in Angst - so wollen sie sich schützen

Üble Gerüchte versetzen ukrainische Frauen in Angst - so wollen sie sich schützen

Die Angst unter den Geflüchteten, dass sie an Menschen- oder Organhändler geraten könnten, ist groß. Diese Gerüchte hätten sich schnell verbreitet. Daher sei in den Lagern an der polnisch-ukrainischen Grenze auch Überzeugungsarbeit notwendig. Den Geflüchteten werde erklärt, was sie in Deutschland erwartet. "Da ist so viel Vertrauen gefragt", sagt Inna Ganschow. Die Russin ist mit dem Verein MMS Humanitas an die polnisch-ukrainische Grenze gefahren, um Flüchtlinge nach Deutschland zu bringen.

Closing Keynote: Networks, governance and design. A journey through some historical case studies

As famous as the quotation by Lawrence Lessing “Code is law”, the sentence by David Clark at a meeting at the IETF in 1992 “We reject kings, presidents and voting, we believe in rough consensus and running code” became a “motto for Internet standardization” (Russell, 2006) that invites us to have a look at the past relationships and intertwinements between networks design and governance.

Historiciser la viralité en ligne : les défis des archives

Historiciser la viralité en ligne : les défis des archives

Les phénomènes viraux et en particulier les gifs et les mèmes ont donné lieu à des études (par H. Jenkins, L. Shifman, R. Milner, D. Kaplan et N. Nova, J. Eppink, A. Wagener et bien d’autres) qui éclairent les phénomènes de circulation, participation, partage (cf. également les recherches de N. John) et transformation au sein des cultures numériques. Les phénomènes viraux sont bien sûr présents dès les débuts du Web et certains voient dans les émoticones ou la loi de Godwin leurs premières occurrences (J. McGrath).

The Digital Archive and the Politics of Digitisation

The Digital Archive and the Politics of Digitisation

In this paper I will discuss key parameters of the politics of digitisation within a broader historical and global context with the aim to encourage further debate on its implications for historical research. In the first part, I will outline the global dimensions of the politics of digital cultural heritage with a particular focus on developments within and between Europe and Africa, framed within the broader context of the politics of heritage and its preservation and recent debates about ‘postcolonial digital humanities’.
