>Archives nationales en danger : vers une société sans mémoire ?

>

Entretien réalisé par Laurent Etre et publié dqns l’Humanité du 18 avril 2009, des questions traitant de l’importqnce des archives pour la nation ont été posées à Antoine Casanova, historien, directeur de la revue La Pensée, et à Bruno Delams, professeur d’Archivistique, de diplomatique et d’institutions de l’époque contemporaine, diplomé de l’Ecole des chartes (*)

– Que recouvrent exactement les Archives nationales ? Qu’est-ce qu’un document d’archives ?

– L’appel intersyndical pour sauver les Archives estime qu’on est entré, avec celles-ci, dans un « monde nouveau, sans secret, sans privilèges » ? Partagez-vous cette considération ?

– Aujourd’hui, dans un contexte d’attaques contre les libertés individuelles et collectives, n’a-t-on pas tendance à aborder les archives comme une modalité parmi d’autres de ce qu’on appelle le « fichage » ?

– La numérisation croissante des données administratives est-elle un progrès ou un danger pour la démocratie ?

– Justement, quelles menaces pèsent sur les Archives de France ?

– Comment interpréter ces menaces sur les archives de l’État ? Traduisent-elles selon vous un rapport plus lâche de notre société avec sa mémoire collective ?

– Comment l’archiviste gère-t-il la contradiction entre besoin légitime d’identification et souci démocratique que l’identification puisse toujours être discutée, voire remise en cause radicalement ?

– Dans votre livre, Bruno Delmas, vous évoquez un décalage entre les élites et les archives… Pourquoi un tel décalage ?

– Mais vu l’ampleur des enjeux, comment expliquer l’absence de mobilisation populaire pour défendre la direction des Archives de France ?

  1. >Dear Prof……, I have pleasure in communicating with you over this message. I am actually writing to you in connection with my interest to pursue research studies in ……….. )Records and Archives( at your lab. There is currently an open call for proposals for what is called “International Incoming Fellowships” (IIF), which is a “People” funding scheme within the context of the FP7 programme. This grant supports the mobility of researchers to Europe for 1-2 years to carry out research at European institutions in any field of science. IIF-grantee will be paid a monthly salary depending on his/her experience and marital status. The programme will also pay the EU host institution some annual amounts of money for the Indirect and Administration costs. An IIF-grantee will also have further funding for 6-12 months on his/her return to home to pursue what he/she would have done at the EU institution. Application to IIF grant is to be jointly made by the EU host scientist and the incoming researcher (me in this case). The application involves a well-justified description of the work that is proposed to be carried at the EU institution in addition to a career development plan of the incoming researcher. I attach a PDF file containing all necessary information about this grant. The deadline for application is August 2009. I would be much obliged if you could consider my request to join your lab within the context of this grant.
