The interviews were carried out by Noémie Couillard, researcher in museology who used these interviews to decide upon some of the themes presented.
Along with a Bachelor’s degree in law, Noémie Couillard also holds first- and second-cycle diplomas from the École du Louvre. She is now preparing an international doctorate in museology (École du Louvre, University of Avignon et des Pays du Vaucluse and the University of Quebec in Montreal) and has completed her thesis on new digital professions (community managers) in cultural institutions. She teaches at the University of Lille and is working on projects in participatory museology, the integration of new technologies, audience studies and social uses of images.
Many thanks to Sarah Ghlamallah and Vera Arrezza, interpreters for the distance interviews carried out in English and Italian.
The historical themes were imagined by Fabien Oppermann, chief curator and historian.
Fabien Oppermann is a chief curator at the French Ministry of Education, where he oversees the archives and cultural heritage department. Archivist-paleographist and a graduate of the École Pratique des Hautes études, he dedicated his thesis at the École Nationale des Chartes to the history of the Palace of Versailles in the 20th century. He is the author of several books and articles on the subject, including "Le Versailles des Présidents" (Fayard, 2015).
Many thanks to our visitors, both yesterday and today. The story goes on.
