Aller aux archives, entrer sur le terrain ? : Sur les conditions sociales d’enquêtes en « terrain archivistique »

Abstract : This article proposes associating the tools of ethnography with the critique of historical sources. Based on a comparison of two studies using “private” archives, we highlight the value of inserting the archival encounter into the material and social conditions of possibility. Re-examining how the studies unfolded, the properties of the actors (archivists and researchers alike), and the collection of archival holdings, this article introduces the reflexive endeavor into the ordinary work of historian. Far from the passive role generally attributed to archival researchers, they are full-fledged actors in the studies they conduct.
