The notion of “popular” is not so recognized by its origin in the “impoverished social classes” or its relation with local traditions, it is rather defined by its antagonistic position against what we call hegemonic. From this perspective, “popular” comprises a field of political action, production of meaning and resignification in which we fight for recognition with those who are in power.

Between domination and vindication, the notion of "popular" is useful for dismantling the essentialist and static look upon which subalternity has been constructed. From this definition, a series of specific definitions have been set such as: popular education, popular art, or popular communication. We can say that the shared interest among them is the adoption of political principles, methodologies, and resources to achieve the empowerment of the popular classes.

In this sense, what exactly does it mean that an archive has a "popular" character? What criteria does come into play for its creation? Why is it useful? How does it relate to the social agents and their struggles?

This new session of glossary aims at reviewing the notion of "popular archive " through concrete case studies or local experiences. We are interested in understanding the context in which the notion has emerged, the relationships and aspirations that have contributed to its creation, as well as how it has been managed and spread, or what kind of strategies have been adopted to
access other ways to read the history of peoples.
