‘Stanford Wayback’ : le premier site Web américain archivé

A l’occasion des 25 ans du Web en octobre 2014, l’université de Stanford a révélé son projet d’archivage des sites Web américains. On peut trouver sur sa “wayback machine” la sauvegarde du premier site Web hors Europe en 1991, celui des physiciens du SLAC, un homologue américain du CERN (où venait de s’inventer le système Web).

Dans sa grande entreprise de patrimonialisation des matériaux numériques natifs, grâce notamment à l’action de l’Archive Team et de Jason Scott, Internet Archive a ajouté à ses collections historiques de logiciels plus de 2000 jeux vidéos appartenant anciennement aux environnements MS-DOS, mais virtualisés pour pouvoir être joués sur un navigateur Web.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS. Deadline: 31 January 2015

In recent decades the figure of archive has been extensively employed in various fields of academic reflection. Moreover, since the introduction of accelerated digitalisation, the practice of archiving has strongly influenced modes of academic work and cultural activities. In order to reflect on the challenges and possibilities of this multifaceted notion we are interested in proposals which would deliberate on various aesthetic, philosophical, social, technological, methodological and practical aspects of archives in the era of digitalisation.
