di Kiran Klaus Patel
in Memoria e Ricerca n.s. 37 (2011), p. 155

The article discusses the challenges contemporary history has to face due to the changing nature of its sources in the digital age. It argues that so far, historians have not done enough to prepare themselves for this new situation that will force the discipline to rethink established routines and standards. Moreover, it proposes concrete directions into which historiography should develop.
