"Contemporary history in the digital era" study day (Lausanne, 4 July 2018): Challenges facing history in the digital age, a new “allure of the archives”?

The aim of the “Contemporary history in the digital era – sources, methodologies and criticism” day (Lausanne, 4 July 2018), the result of a partnership between the Universities of Lausanne and Luxembourg, the infoclio.ch website and the International Association of Contemporary History of Europe (IACHE), was to encourage collective reflection on the role of technological innovation in historical research, especially its influence on the historian’s relationship with primary sources.

A museum at your fingertips? Some thoughts on 3D tours of museums

More and more cultural institutions create virtual tours that allow visitors to explore the collections at home instead of actually visiting the institutions. In this blog post, I would like to provide some reflections on virtual tours, their usefulness and their limits.

Digitising the analogue

Some time ago it suddenly hit us that it has been a while since we read an academic book or article in a physical format. This for the simple reason that we can retrace digital information much quicker — i.e. annotating a PDF, extracting highlighted text automatically with ZotFile or quickly looking up a specific word in a pdf document. A second realisation was that as PhD students in the field of digital history and hermeneutics these "small" digital aspects of a scholars life are almost never highlighted.

Google Maps as a tool for researchers? The example of the debates on the national museum in Luxembourg

Some time ago, I was wondering whether I could use Google Maps as a tool for my research on the history of the National History and Art Museum in Luxembourg, to adopt a distant reading approach, with the aim to gain new insights. I did it and, in the following blog post, I look back at this small experience.

Expérimenter les Humanités numériques

Univers en perpétuelle expansion et au foisonnement chaotique, Internet offre un nombre incalculable d’outils, dont l’exploration paraît parfois hors de portée. Dans le paysage des sciences humaines, les blogs, les logiciels bibliographiques, les bases de données, les éditions en ligne et les wikis, tous ces objets qui éveillaient notre curiosité il y a une décennie, sont devenus aussi anodins qu’omniprésents. Mais comment bien s’en servir ?
