The Archival City – Chiang-Mai team participates in the DocAsie annual seminar. The theme of the 2021 seminar is the development and funding of Asian collections. Nathalie Lancret, Pijika Pumketkao and Pascal Fort will present their work with a presentation entitled : Archival city, Documenter la ville ordinaire de l’Asie du Sud-est : Etude de cas de Chiang Mai.
Pijika Pumketkao takes part in the Future Days. She will speak in the workshop « Mettre en récit la ville ». Her presentation « Documenting the Ordinary Cities in South East Asia. A Case Study of Chiang Mai (Thailand) » will take place on Wednesday 2 December.
On Friday 20 November a new Core-Team meeting was held. This session provided an opportunity to discuss the numerous meetings between archivist Elsa Camus and the local teams in Quito and Chiang Mai on the description and standardisation of data resulting from the work of researchers. Several seminars will be organised at the end of the year and at the beginning of 2021. The Archival City team has also decided to open a new line of research around urban pollution archives, following the previous seminar.
Archival City and the group Usages de l’Histoire et devenirs urbains from the Labex Futurs Urbains are co-organizing a seminar entitled « Archives de la rue. Autour de la constitution de corpus d’études sur la voirie » with Paul Lesieur (PhD student in contemporary history, ACP – UGE) and Louis Baldasseroni (Maître de conférence in contemporary history, University of Nîmes).
The seminar will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 2020, 4-6 pm, at the University Gustave Eiffel, Bois de l’Etang, Building C, room C 219.

Thierry Guillopé (Archival City) is co-organizing a workshop on current research on colonial worlds. The next session will be held on Monday, October 12, 2020, 10:00-12:00, at the ANOM.
Session led by Christine Mussard (Aix-Marseille University/Iremam) on the theme: « Suspecter les élèves pendant la guerre d’indépendance algérienne : un autre regard sur l’école à partir d’archives sur la surveillance des populations »
Whether you are a historian, archaeologist, sociologist, philolgist or epigraphist, you are all dealing with « archives », in the broad – and sometimes loose – sense of the term: those that you strip, those that you manage, those that you produce. The aim of this seminar is to cross-reference approaches and questions around a type of document that constitutes a primary source for some, a secondary source for others, with particular emphasis on the methodological issues of this delicate « return to sources ». With what questions should we approach these collections? How to exploit the archives of administrations and institutions, how to deal with the heterogeneous collections of scholars or researchers? Which archives generate our disciplines? What vision – or illusion – do they produce, particularly in relation to the artefacts and other material traces they study or document? How can they be valued, interconnected and made more accessible?
This video is taken from a presentation by Emile Blettery and Paul Lecat at Futures Days in November 2019. It presents the research work of the Seine 54 project, which aims at aggregating census data from the Seine department with the IGN’s aerial photography collection. The presentation focuses in particular on the digitisation of data, the construction of a database and geographic information system, the georeferencing of aerial photographs and the development of the data covisualisation tool. These data are then used in a case study on the shantytowns of Nanterre.
