Conférence RESAW 2023: Exploring the Archived Web During a Highly Transformative Age
5 & 6 juin/June 2023
What will remain in thirty years’ time of the satirical videos published online during the imprisonment, the websites of the NGOs mobilised in Ukraine, the student groups on social networks or the academic journals? How can we study, preserve and transmit this native digital heritage at a time when technological, environmental and political changes are disrupting the production and dissemination of knowledge and shaking up certainties about ethics and democracy?

Many memory institutions across Europe contain holdings connected with its colonial past which for many years has been a focus of contestation from both communities of origin, ethnic minorities and civil society at large. At the same time challenging questions are being asked by professionals in the field as to what to do with this problematic cultural heritage, from returning items when appropriate, to rewriting the historical context surrounding them in a more critical and inclusive way (…). The overall outcome of PICCH is to engender a polyvocality that can be incorporated into the archive itself providing new ways to enter and explore the past via a contemporary interpretative frame. To this effect advanced technologies will be used to study how to bridge archival and contemporary languages, and to support transnational exploration of multiple archives via a single interactive user interface.
First workshop in Aix-en-Provence, on May 25th pm (2:00-4:00) – Online by Zoom and Salle Seurat (MMSH) Continuer la lecture de Polyvocality of the archives, May 25th, Aix-en-Provence, MMSH

The death of Lokman Slim, cowardly assassinated on February 3, 2021, in southern Lebanon, raises deep feelings of sadness and revolt.
Lokman Slim was a man of culture and engagement. He paid a heavy price for his freedom of thought and his uncompromising freedom of speech.
Humanities and social scientists working in the Near East have regularly benefited from Lokman Slim’s work through Umam Research & Documentation, an association he co-directed with his wife Monika Borgmann. Umam was created in 2004 with a twofold objective: to build a citizen archives centre accessible to as many people as possible, and to raise public awareness on the subjects of war and violence through the arts. Together, they also founded the Hangar, a cultural centre in which many exhibitions have been organized, notably on memories of the war and of the Ghobeiri district where it was located. The building of an archive of Lebanon’s contemporary and present history constitutes a significant contribution to the work research in the field.
Lokman Slim was committed to the development of an open and democratic society in Lebanon. He was a main actor of Lebanon’s cultural life. In 1990, together with his sister, the writer Racha Al-Ameer, he founded Dar Al-Jadeed editions. Its innovative choices had a key impact on the Lebanese and Arab publishing landscape. With Monika Borgmann, he made two essential documentaries: Massaker (2004) is based on the testimonies of former militiamen who participated in the massacres in the Palestinian camps of Sabra and Chatila in 1982; Tadmor (2016) focused on the daily life of detainees in the Syrian prison of Tadmor (Palmyra).
Lokman Slim was also a lively and impactful writer and speaker. He spoke in a chiselled language, in Arabic as well as in French or English. Two of his writings, available in French, testify to the delicacy and refinement of his reflections and his uncompromising love of Lebanon: “Lebanese peace, or the art of reconciliation without moderation”((translated from French to English by the author)) (Liban. Espaces partagés et pratiques de rencontre, Cahiers de l’Ifpo, 2008 [Online] https://books.openedition.org/ifpo/105) and “Beyrouth. A capital which capitulates “(Beyrouth à mots découpés”), Poitiers, 2000, http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/495443604) in which he revealed a few false pretences of Beirut and the publishing profession.
This assassination raises fears of a new cycle of violence targeting intellectuals. The academic community engaged in the study and research of Near Eastern societies associates with the grief of Lokman Slim’s family and honours his memory.[SL1]

About the café
Oral sources are rather fragile objects within oral history, mainly if compared to other kinds of historical sources such as artifacts and written documents, and thus rely on a specialised infrastructure for their preservation. This CLARIN Café discusses the best practices for preserving such oral sources. Continuer la lecture de CLARIN Café – How Not to Spill Coffee on Your Tapes. Best Practices for Preserving Oral Archives
