Internet and Memory

Toutes les versions de cet article : [English] [français]

In spite of the development of the internet, too few institutions have made their oral collections available through this medium, partly because the copyright system was not made for it.

Obviously digital technologies provide “media for memory”. However, the huge quantity of information they make available challenges the traditional paradigms for the management of databases and endangers the preservation of the continuity of memory [1 ; 2 ; 3]. Indeed, with the internet, the historian is no more confronted with the lack and growing scarcity of references but with the overabundance and blossoming of sources. That is why digital technologies not only demands specific strategies to organize data but calls also for a rethinking of the questions asked by the collection, use and conservation of such oral archives for the history of present time. A reflection that is linked to the common expression of “digital humanities”.
