New sources, new histories
The projects in this rubrique shed a new light on the histories of immigration, decolonization, and territory. They propose a method for collecting, archiving, and editing data that would enable scientific researchers to reuse collections and nourish public debate. Several projects specifically focus on the space of Nanterre and on the Hauts-de-Seine, and most are jointly carried out with non-profit associations. They are all part of a professional master’s program and they bring together historians, ethnologists and ethnomusicologists, sociologists, geographers and urban developers, library and archive professionals, and documentary directors. These projects generate exhibitions, web-documentaries, and curated urban walking paths.
