April 2024, Frankfurt am Main sowie hybrid Von überall ist der Ruf nach (mehr) Digitalität und digitalen Kompetenzen in Forschung und Lehre zu hören. Für die einen sind es die Unworte der letzten Jahre, für andere sind es Versprechen von neuen Erkenntnismöglichkeiten. Aber: Wo stehen wir als Geschichtswissenschaft eigentlich wirklich? Erfinden wir das digitale Rad oder laufen wir ihm gerade hinterher?

Framing settlement systems as spatial adaptive systems

Framing settlement systems as spatial adaptive systems

Theoretical developments are needed to interpret the increasing amount of large-scale spatial data about past settlements. So far, settlement patterns have mostly been considered as passive imprints of past human activities and most theories are limited to ecological processes. Locational and spatial interactions have scarcely been included as long-term driving forces of settlement systems but hold promise to explain large-scale patterns.

Fairy-tale prince or voivode? Royalist propaganda and theories of monarchy under Carol II of Romania

Fairy-tale prince or voivode? Royalist propaganda and theories of monarchy under Carol II of Romania

The article discusses the self-portrayal of the 'Royal Dictatorship' of Carol II of Romania and analyses four theories of monarchy produced or published under his regime. It shows that the Romanian 'Royal Dictatorship' relied on leitmotifs targeting the multiparty system, territorial revisionism, and the Iron Guard, but that it lacked a coherent official doctrine. The article argues that this void allowed for Romanian theorists of monarchy to draw divergent, Western or (pseudo-)autochthonous genealogies for the regime.
