Camille Paloque – Berges joins the Vossius Center in June for one month as a Research Fellow with her project "Early European networks, Dutch nodes" at the Korteweg – de Vries Institute for Mathematics.
Before the internet reached the public, and private users, in the 1990s, computer networks were built up in Europe as in the US. Various communities of computing and data processing connected themselves increasingly by electronic means. As a result competing networks emerged in Europe in the 1980s. That is when the networking and data sharing were shaped. Dutch nodes were surprisingly central in these networks, their archives are the focus of the next stage of this research project.
Currently Camille Paloque-Berges is Researcher Engineer in the “History of Techno-Sciences in Society” laboratory (HT2S) at the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers (Cnam), Paris, France and part-time lecturer in the “Science and Technologies in Society” school
(Certificate, Bachelor and Magister): History of the Internet and Digital Cultures, Societies and Cultures (from concepts to practices and ideologies).
