Event Details

Europeana Collections 1914-1918: Rediscovering the war experience

 

Thursday 3rd and Friday 4th April 2014

Venue: Bibliothèque nationale de France, Petit Auditorium, Site François-Mitterrand 75013 Paris, France

As 2014 marks the commemoration of the outbreak of the First World War, the Europeana Collections 1914-1918 project presents the result of the cooperation between 8 European countries, making over 400 000 rare documents available online : books, newspapers, maps, trench journals, photographs, posters, manuscripts, song lyrics, etc.

In France, the Bibliothèque nationale de France contributes together with the Bibliothèque de Documentation Internationale et Contemporaine (BDIC), Service Historique de la Défense (French Ministry of Defence), Bibliothèque Historique de la Ville de Paris, Bibliothèque de l’Hôtel de Ville (Paris) and the Bibliothèque Nationale et Universitaire de Strasbourg.

The conference "Rediscovering the war experience" will present this digital corpus by illustrating relevant historiographical themes through various countries impacted by WWI, and questioning how History was written from different angles. It will also inform on the several digital resources, from the Great War portal to the virtual exhibition, together with educational contents.

This conference takes place shortly after the opening of the exhibition of national commemoration at BnF presenting the very outbreak of WWI in summer 1914: ”Eté 1914 : les derniers jours de l’ancien monde” (for more information:  http://www.bnf.fr/fr/evenements_et_culture/anx_expositions/f.ete_1914.html).
