Die unfreien Befreiten. Über die lange Heimkehr der sowjetischen ZwangsarbeiterInnen aus Luxemburg.

Die unfreien Befreiten. Über die lange Heimkehr der sowjetischen ZwangsarbeiterInnen aus Luxemburg.

Inna Ganschow untersucht in ihrem Vortrag die verschiedenen Typen totaler Institutionen im Sinne Erving Goffmans auf dem Weg von ZwangsarbeiterInnen aus der Sowjetunion nach Luxemburg und zurück. Von den nationalsozialistischen Durchgangs- und Kriegsgefangenenlagern über die luxemburgischen Werk- und Ostarbeiterlager bis hin zu den sowjetischen Sammel- und Filterlagern endete die lange Reise nach Hause oft nach einigen Monaten oder Jahren erneut in einem Lager oder einer Zwangsansiedlung.

3rd Corvus Applied History Workshop : Practices of Applied History: Questions, Answers, Discussions

Situated at the axis of societal issues and academic research, the renewed popularity
of applied history has raised several questions about its practice. The most direct
questions come from non-academic partners. What can one expect of applied
historians? How will those expectat ions be met? What if the methods and tools of
applied history fall short of their goal? And is it even that important that organizations
learn to think about the past , when they are oriented towards the present and future?

Maxim Kantor: Kunst über Migration, Russland und Krieg

"Man hofft nur auf die Stärke des europäischen Kulturbodens, gemeint sind Christentum, Universitäten, Rabelais, Dante usw., auf dem die neue Mischung der Europäer geschmolzen wird.
Das Europa, auf das wir alle stolz sind, ist nur im Rahmen des Humanismus, der auf den Kathedralen und Universitäten gewachsen ist, etwas wert.

In this roundtable, teachers share their experiences with academic courses training students on both sides of the Atlantic in taking stock of public and applied history.

Scanning the Past: A 3D Model of Trausch's Library

Today, modern geospatial technologies and methods are widely used in combination with the documentation and preservation of objects of importance to cultural heritage. In this setting, archeologists and historians alike benefit from the rapid technological developments over the past decades, which have resulted in instrumentation that allows the capture of real objects and the generation of accurate and precise three-dimensional (3D) digital representations, i.e. models, from these sensed data.
