LuxTime Machine seminar with Inna Ganschow: The parallel life behind the barbed wire in the Minette region in 1942-1944

The lecture by Inna Ganschow in the framework of LuxTime Machine is about two years in the history of the Minette region, from 1942 to 1944.

Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Informationsfreiheit und Datenschutz: Das Luxemburger Archivgesetz von  2018 und die zeithistorische Forschung

Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Informationsfreiheit und Datenschutz: Das Luxemburger Archivgesetz von 2018 und die zeithistorische Forschung

Im Sommer 2018 trat in Luxemburg erstmals ein Archivgesetz in Kraft, das nach jahrelangen Verhandlungen – leider ohne Beteiligung der Archivnutzer*innen – zustande kam. Es war lange erwartet und definierte für das Großherzogtum (endlich!), wie Quellen aus Ministerien und Verwaltungen archivalisch behandelt werden müssen. Das Gesetz schuf damit den Rahmen für eine notwendige und geregelte Ablieferungs- und Archivierungspolitik sowie den erforderlichen Einsatz von geschultem Personal in staatlichen und kommunalen Verwaltungen.

La région Minett en tant que palimpseste

La région Minett en tant que palimpseste

Dans certaines parties du Minett, le paysage peut être considéré comme une sorte de palimpseste. Pour les historiens et les archéologues, un palimpseste est un support d’écriture, par exemple un parchemin, qui est utilisé plusieurs fois après effacement du texte précédent. Au fil des siècles, le paysage du Minett a en effet beaucoup changé au gré des interventions humaines. Le sol raconte de nombreuses histoires qui se chevauchent et s’entremêlent. Certains éléments ont été entièrement effacés, tandis que d’autres traces du passé subsistent.

What the D does to history. Das digitale Zeitalter als neues historisches Zeitregime?

What the D does to history. Das digitale Zeitalter als neues historisches Zeitregime?

The digital interferes in multiple ways in our current day practice of
history. This article argues that it not only impacts the way we search, store,
analyze, and visualize historical sources and how we tell our stories, but the
dynamic, real-time, and connected nature of digital research infrastructures
and the Internet has a deep influence on how we think about history. As a new
temporal regime, the digital age shapes our memory practices and changes the
way we imagine and experience the past. By mobilizing the concept of digital

From #MuseumAtHome to #AtHomeAtTheMuseum: Digital Museums and Dialogical Engagement beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic

From #MuseumAtHome to #AtHomeAtTheMuseum: Digital Museums and Dialogical Engagement beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic

The novel coronavirus spurred a keen interest in digital technologies for museums as both cultural professionals and the public took notice of their uses and limitations throughout the confinement period. In this study, we investigated the use of digital technologies by museums during a period when in-person interaction was not possible. The aim of the study was to better understand the impact of the confinement period on the use of museum technologies in order to identify implications for future museum experience design.

Introduction

Introduction

Europe’s twentieth century was characterised by competing and/or conflicting visions about the organisation of the continent. This general introduction explains why the editors decided to focus on the Cold War period, briefly sets out the broader historical context, and finally clarifies the use of the word ‘asymmetry.’

How to Design Web Archives Research

How to Design Web Archives Research

The aim of this guide is to provide a starting point for using web archives as a source for social science research. With the migration of many aspects of the so- cial world online, fundamental questions have been raised about how and even when social science research happens in the online sphere (Karpf, 2012). Web archives, or archives of content and communications from the Web through time, crucially provide the means for retrospectively studying dynamic media and online interactions that are often subject to change and deletion.

Zur Transformation ökologischer Beziehungen: Manifest für Bildungsgeschichte nach COVID-19

Dieser Beitrag richtet sich auf die Fotografie als aktive Intervention innerhalb einer geschädigten oder gefährdeten Umwelt und bedient sich dieses Mediums, um neue Perspektiven der Bildungsgeschichte – in Bezug auf die bereits geschriebene und die zukünftige – zu entwickeln. Diese Perspektiven werden besonders deutlich, wenn sie vor dem Hintergrund gegenwärtiger Debatten zu Fragen der planetarischen Verantwortung und einer geteilten Welt entwickelt werden, die auch unsere Vorstellungen von Erziehung und Bildung prägen.
