The Laboratoire d’Excellence (Labex) « Les Passés dans le présent : histoire, patrimoine et mémoire » is concerned with the presence of the past in contemporary society. More specifically, the cluster seeks to understand mediations of history in the digital age, politics of memory, social appropriations of the past up- and downstream from heritage policies. The reflection is interdisciplinary and organized in two fundamental themes: “Connections to the past: representations and assessments” and “Active knowledge of the past: tools and practices of transmission”.
The Laboratoire d’Excellence (Labex) « Les Passés dans le présent: histoire, patrimoine et mémoire » is backed jointly by Université Paris Ouest Nanterre La Défense, and the CNRS.
