Internet Portal : Political Archives Research Indexation Komintern and French Archives – PAPRIK@2F

Submission summary

This project is a result of the partnership between the Universities of Burgundy and Franche-Comté, in close association with the National Archives, the Departmental Archives of Seine-Saint-Denis, and a number of research groups based in various universities in France (Avignon, Paris 1, Paris 7, Paris 8, Lille 3 and Sciences Po), and in Europe (Moscow, Potsdam, Manchester and Rome). Its aim is to create a new website dedicated to political archives with a view to providing a fuller picture of the communist “world.” Firstly, it will include archives produced by both communist and anticommunist organisations, e.g. those related to state surveillance and repression. Secondly, it will link existing collections (those kept at the National Archives and the so-called “Moscow archives”) to collections that are still kept in Moscow and to various tracts, pamphlets, posters, photographs and films. It will be a major new resource that will make possible a fuller and richer history of communism.
