About Founded in 2011, The Public Domain Review is an online journal and not-for-profit project dedicated to the exploration of curious and compelling works from the history of art, literature, and ideas. In particular, as our name sugggests, the focus is on works which have now fallen into the public domain, that vast commons of out-of-copyright material that everyone is free to enjoy, share, and build upon without restriction. Our aim is to promote and celebrate the public domain in all its abundance and variety, and help our readers explore its rich terrain – like a small exhibition gallery at the entrance to an immense network of archives and storage rooms that lie beyond. With a focus on the surprising, the strange, and the beautiful, we hope to provide an ever-growing cabinet of curiosities for the digital age, a kind of hyperlinked Wunderkammer – an archive of content which truly celebrates the breadth and diversity of our shared cultural commons and the minds that have made it.

Free download of artworks - Statens Museum for Kunst Approximately 25,000 images of artworks on our website are in the Public Domain and can be found via Search the Collection. The quality varies but we are working on replacing the older recordings with new high quality images. On this page we have compiled a selection of 160 images in extra high resolution, featuring some of the most prominent artworks in our collections. The copyright on all of these artworks has expired because they were made by artists who passed away more than 70 years ago. Since the copyright on these images has expired, you are free to: Share the images – i.e. to copy, distribute, and transmit them. The images have been designated 'Public Domain' to clearly signify that they are no longer subject to copyright. You can download the images individually (scroll down) or bundled as zip-files: Images in the Public Domain are like tools in a toolbox – you can use them for all manners of purposes.

Humanités numériques Update (3 avril 2014): l’enregistrement du séminaire est disponible sur le site du réseau Terra. J’ai poursuivi la réflexion sur un point précis dans mon billet suivant. J’ai eu l’honneur d’être invité à parler au séminaire Fichet-Heynlin [] à l’occasion d’une séance consacrée à l’histoire. Le séminaire se déroule également en ligne et un framapad a permis à Julien Vincent, modérateur et organisateur de la séance, de collecter les questions du public qui suivait le séminaire en ligne. C’était l’occasion de rencontrer Jean-Philippe Genet (Paris 1), qui est également intervenu à ce séminaire. Je vous livre ici les notes que j’avais préparées, en réponse à deux questions préalables posées par Julien Vincent pour préparer le séminaire. Quelles sont, en histoire, les transformations les plus importantes, liées au numérique? Je partirais d’Arlette Farge, Le goût de l’archive. Toutefois, cette adoption est inégale en fonction du type d’outils offert par l’ordinateur ou le réseau.

How And Why To Keep A “Commonplace Book” The other day I was reading a book and I came across a little anecdote. It was about the great Athenian general Themistocles. Before the battle of Salamis, he was locked in a vigorous debate with a Spartan general about potential strategies for defeating the Persians. When I read this, I immediately began a ritual that I have practiced for many years–and that others have done for centuries before me–I marked down the passage and later transferred it to my “commonplace book.” In other posts, we’ve talked about how to read more, which books to read, how to read books above your level and how to write. What is a Commonplace book? A commonplace book is a central resource or depository for ideas, quotes, anecdotes, observations and information you come across during your life and didactic pursuits. Some of the greatest men and women in history have kept these books. Not only did all these famous and great individuals do it. How to Do It (Right) –Read widely. -Wisdom, not facts. -Use them!
