Monday 6 July 2020, 14h-18h (13h-17h in France): transversal seminar CRFJ – ARCHIVAL-CITY
[ remotely accessible via zoom: find the link on www.crfj.org ]
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?

On 26 June 2020, a progress meeting was held on the administrative directories of the former Seine department.Continuer la lecture de Zoom Meeting on the metropolis archives
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.

Ordinary city mapping and architectural survey in Wua Lai neighbourhood, Chiang Mai
In the framework of Archival City project, our approach to documenting the ordinary city of Chiang Mai relies on the pedagogical trainings, notably on the Studio of Master’s degree « Heritage/Tourism, Contemporaneity/Development » which associates ENSA Paris-Belleville, Faculty of architecture of University of Chiang Mai, Faculty of architecture of Chulalongkorn University (Bangkok). The field workshop of this studio, organised each year on December in Chiang Mai since 2011, is an opportunity to produce the documents on Wua Lai neighbourhood, our case study. The archive of Wua Lai is an integral part of our corpus of study.
From 9.00 am: « Archivo Metropolitano de Historia » (AMH). La Circasiana Park.

The first year Emergence revealed the great diversity of situations and types of archives according to the projects. This observation was the starting point for a reflection on the convergence of problematics in a context of profound transformation of the uses and practices of the public: in the age of the Internet, access to information is supposed to be available and immediate. We asked ourselves about the method of data processing and description to meet the scientific needs of the projects as well as how to make them accessible to the public through different tools and representations. Our objective was therefore to define how to implement cultural and technical interoperability.Continuer la lecture de Explanatory note for the future digital tools
