Historical archives have a considerable influence on the formation of collective memory. As memory repositories, they can contribute to the transfer of information between generations. The EU-funded TRANS.ARCH project will create a network of researchers, both young and experienced, for the study of current uses and functions of archives in the context of globalization-related crises. In particular, the project will not only investigate how archives allow new elaborations of historical and social models but will also offer a basis for a new approach to the cultural heritage of societies. The team will focus on the different political, judicial, cultural, and artistic uses of the archives developed by migrant groups and sexual dissidents in Europe and Latin America.
