Missions and Goals

The CLAMOR (Center for the Digital Humanities and History of Justice) offers a range of services from the Institute of Human and Social Sciences. As the first center for digital humanities dedicated to the history of justice, it brings together specialists in the history of justice and in digital publishing in order to provide innovative digital services that will facilitate and promote the interdisciplinary study of the history of justice.

The CLAMOR uses different tools to edit, academically publish, and valorize the data it produces. It guarantees free access and long-term data storage by using national structures such as the Très Grande Infrastructure de Recherche Huma-Num and the Center for Open Electronic Edition. These digital data are made available on the Criminocorpus platform, which is composed of a virtual museum (http://criminocorpus.org) that offers exhibits, collections of documents, and virtual tours of important sites in the history of justice, an online journal (http://criminocorpus.revues.org) and a blog (http://criminocorpus.hypotheses.org).

The CLAMOR also ensures the maintenance and the development of the Criminocorpus platform, as well as the longevity of its services, and, more generally, the longevity of all creations linked to scientific or judicial heritage which present an interest for the field of the history of justice.

The CLAMOR can host interns, students (including post-docs), and temporary researchers for certain projects. The CLAMOR is as a potential partner for professional or advanced academic training session in the field of digital humanities or the history of justice.

The CLAMOR works in relationship with the National Archives, the French National Correctional Administration Academy and the Library of Police Literature and remains available to all other institutions appropriate for partnership.
