L’ordinateur, le réseau et l’écriture de l’histoire

Abstract : Historians have been facing computers and internet for at least a decade. For some of them it has, or will, change the way History is written. Using available studies and looking at historical websites in the French and Italian context, we stress the lack of empirical evidence proving that the availability of electronic resources has already affected the way history is written. As for the future, considering that available technologies evolve quickly, and that the rules governing the way history is made (rarely an object of study) are produced by complex social and mighty organisations whose changes suppose social, cultural, and economic transformations, we conclude that it can not be predicted by looking only at the way present technological artefacts operate.
