Лекция профессора Марко Демантовского «The Digital Presence of Public History»
11 марта в 18:00 в Центре цифровых гуманитарных исследований НИУ ВШЭ пройдет лекция профессора Марко Демантовского (Университет прикладных наук Северо-западной Швейцарии). Лекция посвящена цифровым подходам к публичной истории.
Public communication today largely takes place in formats that are technically based on digital programs. If we want to agree with Johan Huizinga that "history is the intellectual form in which a civilization renders account to itself of its past", it is now quite clear that, on the one hand, this happens essentially in digital formats today, and that therefore, on the other hand, we have to enlighten this specific digitality in order to understand how collective self-understandings are negotiated and influenced in our societies.
These processes are now booked under "Public History". Many talk about it, act in it, and yet can only ever give examples when asked what it actually is. In other words, we must understand digitization before we understand exactly what is being digitized. "Public History" is an umbrella term for a fuzzy concept and it describes very different practices. The concept originated by its name at the beginning of the 1970s, but in the meantime very different international traditions converge in it. "Public History" is booming internationally.
My presentation attempts to order this field systematically and to determine more precisely what actually connects all these approaches and practices and how this can then be defined more precisely. From this, I develop a research system and try to determine the role of the actors more precisely. Finally, I would like to discuss approximatively how the "digitization" is changing the collective accountability. My thesis is: Perspectively, a fundamental rupture.
