La Digital History : histoire et mémoire à la portée de tous
MetadataShow full item record
Digital History in its version 2.0, has certainly helped to open up "high culture" but with the advent of web 2.0, history and memory are now the prerogative of anyone using "crowdsourcing" activities. The danger today is that specialists do not control these digital mutations. Without a knowledge of the new instruments and reflecting on the new historian’s craft, the digital revolution will eliminate the professional capacity to reconstruct the past. History will soon become an open territory for unqualified individuals to play with. The author attempts to understand what are the most significant mutations of history 2.0 for the profession of historian and what exactly are the epistemological issues posed by the new digital realm. He focuses on the practices of Digital Public History, a history open to everyone and answering to the profound identity needs of our societies.
