Laure Ohnona pour La contemporaine

How and from which plays is the history of the present time written? How did we come to be interested in sources hitherto neglected - press, graphic works, tracts, photographs, posters, audiovisual, web? Why do we focus on preserving the traces of our personal or family history? Why do activists gather archives of their commitment? What is the interaction between the views of the historian, the activist and the citizen? Why and how to pass these materials on to future generations? Through a stroll through the collections of La contemporaine (paintings of the Great War, tracts, sketches of the Liberation Trials or notebooks of the Algerian War, archives collected hot during the Russian Revolution or samizdats of the years 1970-1980, works of photojournalists, interviews filmed, Fonds d'archives militants ou associatifs,...), l'Atelier de l'histoire questions our relationship to contemporary history and its sources.

About the location

La contemporaine : bibliothèque, archives, musée des mondes contemporains
184 cours Nicole Dreyfus 92000 Nanterre
  • Hauts-de-Seine
  • Île-de-France
At once a library, museum and archives centre, La contemporaine is the only institution in France to collect, preserve and communicate collections on the entire European history of the 20th and 21st centuries. Created in 1918, its purpose since its inception is to gather all the materials and documentary traces of events that can be used to interpret and write the history of our time. Today, it offers more than 4.5 million documents (books, press, leaflets, archives, films, works of art, photographs, posters, press drawings and objects) for consultation. An inter-university institution attached to the Université Paris Nanterre, a member of the ComUE Paris Lumières and the Campus Condorcet, La contemporaine opened a new facility at the entrance to the Nanterre university campus in October 2021\. Open to both the university and the city, it facilitates the meeting of all audiences, students, researchers, high school students, history enthusiasts... and an exceptional heritage collection.
