UW Main Campus, Old Mathematic Centre building, lounge 106.

26/28 Nowy Świat Street, Warsaw


 In the first part of my presentation, I will talk about my professional experience, where I will demonstrate that two aspects, both meeting people and also chance have been at least as important as training and scientific interest when one wants to find meaning in a career. In the second part, I will try to pinpoint the main dates and decisions which have structured French policies about digital infrastructures for Social and Human Sciences. Although the landscape is complex, major achievements have also been made. And in the third part, I will present the very beginning of a piece of my research, which focuses on the notion of research objects and tries to document what is new when Humanities got digital. I will use some linguistic properties of the “object” type in order to build an observatory where different projects from different disciplines (Linguistic, Archaeology, History, etc.) can be compered. I will show what properties are especially affected with digital use.~ Sophie David
