Survey summary

This survey is conducted as part of my PhD at King’s College London (United Kingdom). My research focuses on digital oral history and tensions created by digital technologies. Indeed, such technologies enhance the visibility and use of historical archives; yet they also trigger new dilemmas. Projects producing audiovisual archives such as oral history recordings have to reconcile competing expectations: transparency of publicly-funded research, open access to information, use of the latest technologies for dissemination, respect of copyright, requirement for data protection and need for participants’ informed consent.

My research investigates and seeks to alleviate some of the difficulties thus created. My work is grounded in interpretative approaches developed in digital humanities to assess the novelty of dilemmas caused by digital technologies, and their impact on research sources and projects. Using a historical and comparative methodology, my project aims to identify the scope of tensions, to assess any changes in the digital context and to map the strategies developed by stakeholders.

My research supervisors are Dr Mark Hedges (Senior Lecturer) and Dr Tobias Blanke (Reader and Head of Department); they are both based in the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London.
