La soirée-débat organisée par la revue RESET (Recherches en Sciences Sociales sur Internet) pose la question des changements et des continuités qui accompagnent les usages d’Internet. Elle prend la forme d’une table-ronde à laquelle participent Antonio Casilli, Cécile Méadel et Dominique Pasquier, tou.te.s spécialistes des pratiques numériques et associé.e.s à la revue de différentes manières. À l’image de celle-ci, la soirée propose de revisiter les objets fondamentaux (classe, famille, travail, sociabilité…) des sciences sociales à l’heure des pratiques numériques. Quels sont les domaines où Internet a sensiblement changé les pratiques sociales ? Quels sont ceux où le réseau reproduit plus qu’il ne modifie les manières de faire ?

Le débat – entre les participants et avec le public – sera aussi l’occasion de revenir sur les différences de classe et de genre dans les pratiques numériques et sur les inégalités qui se logent dans les usages d’Internet.

Of Remixology

9780262033930David J. GunkelOf Remixology. Ethics and Aesthetics after Remix, The MIT Press, 2015.

Remix—or the practice of recombining preexisting content—has proliferated across media both digital and analog. Fans celebrate it as a revolutionary new creative practice; critics characterize it as a lazy and cheap (and often illegal) recycling of other people’s work. In Of Remixology, David Gunkel argues that to understand remix, we need to change the terms of the debate. The two sides of the remix controversy, Gunkel contends, share certain underlying values—originality, innovation, artistic integrity. And each side seeks to protect these values from the threat that is represented by the other. In reevaluating these shared philosophical assumptions, Gunkel not only provides a new way to understand remix, he also offers an innovative theory of moral and aesthetic value for the twenty-first century.

In a section called “Premix,” Gunkel examines the terminology of remix (including “collage,” “sample,” “bootleg,” and “mashup”) and its material preconditions, the technology of recording. In “Remix,” he takes on the distinction between original and copy; makes a case for repetition; and considers the question of authorship in a world of seemingly endless recompiled and repurposed content. Finally, in “Postmix,” Gunkel outlines a new theory of moral and aesthetic value that can accommodate remix and its cultural significance, remixing—or reconfiguring and recombining—traditional philosophical approaches in the process.

« Disrespect des Fonds: Rethinking Arrangement and Description in Born-Digital Archives » by Jefferson Bailey in Archive Journal, summer 2013 (issue 3)

(…) How will traditional principles of archival arrangement and description be challenged or modified to account for born-digital materials? Arrangement and description have long been the primary method of facilitating the use of archives, and their methodologies have been dependent upon the principle of respect des fonds. The articulation of this theory in 1841 has been held as the “starting point” or beginning of the modern era of archival theory, a “watershed” event establishing the “basic principle” and “very core” of the archival endeavor. Superlatives abound. Respect des fonds, “more than any other principle, has come to provide the archival profession with a unique identity.”1

But respect des fonds was born of a particular historic moment, for a particular type of archival document, and was conceived to address the practical needs of specific social circumstances. (…)

« In this paper, “Lost in the Infinite Archive,” I explore what the future of digital methods for historians will be when they need to explore web archives. Historical research of periods beginning in the mid-1990s will need to use web archives, and right now we are not ready. This article draws on first-hand research with the Internet Archive and Archive-It web archiving teams. It draws upon three exhaustive datasets: the large Web ARChive (WARC) files that make up Wide Web Scrapes of the Web; the metadata-intensive WAT files that provide networked contextual information; and the lifted-straight-from-the-web guerilla archives generated by groups like Archive Team. Through these case studies, we can see – hands-on – what richness and potentials lie in these new cultural records, and what approaches we may need to adopt. It helps underscore the need to have humanists involved at this early, crucial stage ».
