The heritage as an object and historical research in human and social sciences: towards e-museumgraphy

The ‘Fonds Anciens’ and the field diary or travelogue diary (corpus of my PhD thesis, 2009) are a source of study for the human sciences, mostly on the epistemology of geography and ethnology – anthropology, but also for the genetic of visual arts, and heritage would be a fruitful subject for digital humanities. From pictorial works to inventory of heritage work, from illustrations of Elsewhere to ethnography and cultural geography, a corpus of diaries – mostly of travels often considered as research diaries – which would be scanned in order to incorporate a heritage oriented e-museum, would increase the value of such diaries at the national level which are conserved in museums, libraries and education based companies. As much a support, a tool and an object of research, the diaries thanks to watercolour drawings has been in the service of science and the very beginnings of the birth of the human sciences. A personal tool of research and creative inspiration for artists, the intermedia travelogue diary – reporting, from a structure work to a website is also a reflective tool for humanities, from geography to anthropology but also for enhancement of monumental Heritage and Tourism: a research field diary, an ethnographic diary or a diary of observations recorded. A set of visual or textual notes and sketches, it is the memory of the artist or scientist on the field or during a journey: collection of material, observations, a harvest of the fruits of hard work or research.
