La memoria del Covid-19: gli archivi nati durante la pandemia

Un ricercatore austriaco, Tizian Zumthurn ha riflettuto sulle modalità con le quali sono nati, in tutto il mondo, diversi progetti di memorializzazione della pandemia. Zumthurn precisa che i progetti si possono dividere in due approcci metodologici diversi: quelli che raccolgono qualcosa di specifico relativamente alla pandemia e invece quelli che generano forme più aperte di crowdsourcing. Dieci casi di studio in dieci paesi sono stati selezionati perché rappresentano un’ampia varietà di istituzioni coinvolte nel collezionismo partecipativo e nella pubblicazione digitale aperta al pubblico delle loro collezioni online per l’insegnamento e la ricerca

Hundred years after WW1: Doing Public History with Twitter

A “Memoria e Ricerca” roundtable stresses absence of Public History in David Armitage & Jo Guldi “History Manifesto”

There is a widespread feeling that public funds and private sponsorship should be used for what –many people think– matters in society. Economists, for example, enjoy broad acceptance as public mediators and interpreters of our contemporary world. University programs in the Humanities, by contrast, are facing a worldwide crisis.

Digital Public History Narratives with Photographs
