Aujourd’hui je vous parle d’une légende, que dis-je, un héros du chemin de fer russe.

J’ai nommé Alexandre Alexandrovitch Romanov, dit aussi Alexandre III, Tsar de Russie accessoirement. ⤵️⤵️⤵️

Un sacré boute-en-train ce Alex!
On va commencer par l’histoire du « Doigt divin sur la carte ».

Vrai ou faux?
Petit rappel.
Le chemin de fer se développe plein pot en cet fin de XIX siècle.
Et les Russes vont construire un truc extraordinaire, le Trans Sibérien.

Thinking about how to explain #publichistory and #digitalhistory scholarship to colleagues on academic #tenure and promotion committees, especially those who are used to sole-authored books as the gold standard #dh #digitalhumanities 1/15
The core of the work is familiar: conceptualization, research, and writing (even if the ultimate presentation is not in the form of prose). The work is original and interpretive, just like traditional monographic scholarship. 2/15
But #publichistory’s attention to #sharedauthority means that the work is developed in cooperation with the public, a process that sometimes provokes conflict and controversy that the scholar has to manage. Sometimes great potential projects can’t come to fruition. 3/15
