French National Paths Within a Global Computing Market

French National Paths Within a Global Computing Market

In her book The radiance of France, Gabrielle Hecht has shown how France sought to carve out a distinctive role for itself by means of major technological projects (and especially nuclear power). She demonstrates how an American system was adapted in order to “make it French” and incorporate political and cultural issues. The same may be emphasized regarding computing in France: there was a desire to play a distinctive role in a market and field which were dominated by the USA.

Between marginal and mainstream. Communities and ecosystems at stake

Between marginal and mainstream. Communities and ecosystems at stake

The three research articles in this special issue and the interview with Ronda Hauben are partly the result of the 4th RESAW conference, that brought together through the RESAW network a community of researchers, web archivists and professionals, united around a common interest, namely web history and web archives. The 4th RESAW conference, organised on 17 and 18 June 2021 by the C2DH (Centre for contemporary and digital history) at the University of Luxembourg, sought to examine the tension between marginal and mainstream in web history, and to go beyond this binary view.

Le CD-Rom, une histoire à graver

Cet article aborde l’histoire du CD-Rom en France en le replaçant dans la famille des disques optiques qui se développent dans les années 1980-1990, dans la convergence entre médias et informatique, et souligne son rôle de chaînon manquant dans l’histoire du numérique, au moment où se joue aussi la transition entre Minitel et Web.

Préservation et distorsion : l’espace-temps des réseaux socio-numériques et du web archivé

Préservation et distorsion : l’espace-temps des réseaux socio-numériques et du web archivé

Les données massives, ou Big Data, issues de sites Web et réseaux sociaux numériques sous la forme d’écrits, d’images, de vidéos ou de métadonnées, constituent des sources non négligeables pour les recherches actuelles ou futures en histoire culturelle. Ces traces numériques, collectées à l’initiative des chercheurs ou d’institutions, exigent des réflexions méthodologiques, de leur archivage à leur valorisation, dans le cadre de leur analyse à différentes échelles (scalable reading).

« Never gonna give you up ». Historiciser la viralité numérique

Les « phénomènes Internet » (mèmes, challenges, etc.), qu’ils s’incarnent dans des figures célèbres, des animaux, des manifestations de peoplelisation rapides, ou encore des anonymes sont difficiles à saisir dans le temps, même court, de l’histoire du Web, qu’ils traversent pourtant dès l’origine. Sous l’effet des évolutions rapides du Web, des pratiques numériques (de production comme de consommation des contenus), ces phénomènes comptent des déclinaisons multiples et deviennent des artefacts culturels reconnus, faisant l’objet d’une patrimonialisation.

On the use of sì? (‘yes?’) as invariant follow-up in Italian: A historical corpus-based account of pragmatic language change

On the use of sì? (‘yes?’) as invariant follow-up in Italian: A historical corpus-based account of pragmatic language change

Follow-ups are elliptical interrogative forms typically constituting an utterance in their own right. They are used to signal attention to the interlocutor, to encourage them to continue or as a reply to a call. This paper investigates the invariant follow-up sì? (‘yes?’) in Italian and it argues that it represents a case of pragmatic language change. To this end, it investigates the diachronic distribution, collocation and contexts of usage of sì? in a variety of language sources in relation to plausible, equivalent expressions (i.e., dimmi and dica [‘tell me’]).

Archiving and Oral History. Hands-On history: automated transcription.

In the context of the project “24.02.22, 5 am: Testimonies from the War”, one of the tasks in the process of creating a digital archive of testimonies is to transform the audio testimony into a transcript. We have important questions to consider when transcribing :Which way and type of tranсribing corresponds to our purpose? Which type of transcript will be most useful for your particular context? Ways to Transcribe Interviews Transcription can be done in several different ways: In the scientific literature, four main ways of transcription are distinguished.

This Hard Minett Land. Texte über Luxemburgs Süden, inspiriert von Bruce-Springsteen-Songs. Mit Illustrationen von Dan Altmann

This book is an invitation to a very special voyage of discovery through Luxembourg's south: around forty Luxembourgish, German, French, Italian, Belgian writers and historians have been inspired by Bruce Springsteen's songs and have written texts about the Luxembourg-Lorraine iron ore basin, "de Minett", and about those who live and have lived there, were born there or immigrated there, worked there, loved there, dreamed there, hoped, struggled, succeeded - or failed.
