Paper long abstract:

In my paper, I will bring into discussion one case study in which the big data contains material from the last 30 years from the Parliament Library's Veteran Members of Parliament Oral History Archive and from two collection project organized by the Finnish Literature Society's Archive. The project 'Voices of Democracy. The Will of the People by the People and By Their Representatives' project (University of Tampere/PI Matti Hyvärinen) combines top-down and bottom-up approaches to political culture. How interpretation changes as the archive practices of collecting and presenting material has transformed? How may the voice of the narrators be heard in different context, digital big data environment? What kind of new results might reveal?
