Archives in Transition: Collective Memories and Subaltern Uses

Project description

Shedding new light on the transitional nature of archives

Historical archives are powerful in forming collective memories. Considered as repositories of memory, they can help to transfer information from one generation to another. The EU-funded TRANS.ARCH project will create a network of experienced and young researchers who will study current functions and uses of archives in the context of crises associated with globalisation. Specifically, the project will investigate how archives allow new elaborations of historical and social models but also provide a basis for rethinking the cultural heritage of societies. The focus will be on the different political, judicial, cultural and artistic uses of archives deployed by collectives of migrants and sexual dissidents in Europe and Latin America.
