The Minett as Palimpsest

The Minett as Palimpsest

The landscape in some parts of the Minett can be considered as a kind of palimpsest. For historians and archaeologists, a palimpsest is a writing medium, for example a parchment or a manuscript, that is used several times by erasing the previous writing. The landscape of the Minett has also changed greatly over the centuries as a result of human intervention. The soil can tell many overlapping and entangled stories. Some things have been completely erased, while other traces of past times have been left.

Digitalität

Digitalität

Wurde die „Aura des Authentischen“ von Martin Sabrow als „Mythos der Moderne“ bezeichnet, so ließe sich die Aura des Virtuellen als Mythos des digitalen Zeitalters qualifizieren (Sabrow 2016, 30). Die massenhafte Digitalisierung von historischen Zeugnissen und deren online-Verfügbarkeit im Internet hat der Sehnsucht nach dem Authentischen, dem Ursprünglichen oder dem Echten eine neue Wende beschert.

‘As Efficient as a Factory’: Architectural and Managerial Discourses on Government Office Buildings in Belgium, 1919-39

‘As Efficient as a Factory’: Architectural and Managerial Discourses on Government Office Buildings in Belgium, 1919-39

This article investigates the impact of managerial ideologies on projects for new
governmental office buildings in Belgium in the 1920s and 1930s. Following the prewar
publication of F. W. Taylor’s ‘scientific management’ theories, the scientisation of
office activities was propagated by efficiency experts throughout the western world. In
Belgium, as in France, the work of the mining engineer Henri Fayol was particularly
influential. According to Fayol, private and public bureaucracies had to follow identical

Voir ou être vu : analyses de visibilité depuis le site de Chèvremont (commune de Chaudfontaine, Belgique)

Voir ou être vu : analyses de visibilité depuis le site de Chèvremont (commune de Chaudfontaine, Belgique)

Le site de Chèvremont est connu dans l’histoire liégeoise depuis le Haut Moyen-Âge. L’archéologie a montré que la colline a été fréquentée depuis au moins la période néolithique. Intuitivement, tous les auteurs qui se sont rendus sur le site décrivent un endroit d’où le panorama est impressionnant. Nous tentons ici d’utiliser les analyses de visibilité pour mesurer et comparer l’ampleur de la visibilité atteinte depuis plusieurs points du plateau sommital.

Digital Hermeneutics: The Reflexive Turn in Digital Public History?

Digital Hermeneutics: The Reflexive Turn in Digital Public History?

The digital – be it in forms of data, infrastructures, or tools – interferes atall levels in the practice of doing public history. This chapter argues that digitalpublic historians have to reflect more deeply on the epistemological consequencesof their digital practices. It proposes the concept of “digital hermeneutics” as a conceptual framework for this reflection. As a “hermeneutics of in-betweenness,” digital hermeneutics investigates the trading zone of digital public history where new digital methods and approaches meet disciplinary traditions and epistemic cultures of history.

Une informalité bien ordonnée ? La conversation académique sur Twitter

Une informalité bien ordonnée ? La conversation académique sur Twitter

Twitter et les médias sociaux n’ont pas bonne presse. Pourtant, cette réputation ne correspond pas ou qu’en partie à l’expérience qu’en ont maint-e-s chercheurs et chercheuses. Sur la base d’un corpus de tweets, nous soutiendrons dans cet article que le « Twitter académique » est un reflet des conditions matérielles de la recherche, permet une plus grande visibilité des chercheurs et chercheuses et en conséquence la formation de réseaux atypiques au regard de lieux plus classiques de socialisation universitaire.

It examines in detail the judicial and administrative purge of justice personnel, magistrates, police officers and gendarmerie corps members, and the development of law and order in the 20th century. This study treats regulated purge measures as phenomena of transitional justice.
