Mapping the Role of Women in Luxembourg Post-War Diplomacy through the Lens of Oral History

Mapping the Role of Women in Luxembourg Post-War Diplomacy through the Lens of Oral History

After the Second World War, as Luxembourg abandoned its neutrality and engaged in international multilateralism and European integration, it adopted a new foreign policy that for many years remained exclusively male-dominated. The recruitment of the first female diplomat in 1973 was preceded by the emergence of Luxembourg’s first female politicians in international relations as elected members of parliament or ministers/members of the government.

Exploring the History of Digital History: Setting an Agenda

Exploring the History of Digital History: Setting an Agenda

Presentation for the ZZF PhD colloquium of my current (new) book project which explores the history and genealogies of digital history, set within the broader context of the ways in which technology has shaped historical research practices and knowledge production since the late 19th century. The aim is to investigate the intellectual underpinnings of the field we now call digital history by attending to the longue durée of the human-machine encounter in historical research.

Surprising Sources

Surprising Sources

Do the historians gathered in the Tensions of Europe network have a particular relationship to archives, to sources, and to their research materials? What does being a historian of technologies, infrastructures, or networks imply, and is there a singularity regarding sources and archives? It is this relationship to the archives, to the sources, to the historical material at large, to the spatialities, and materialities as well, that this conference invites us to question.

Completing Economic and Monetary Union: Challenges and Prospects

Such as introduced by the Maastricht Treaty (1992), Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) and the single currenti (euro) (implemened in 1999) aimed at securing stability and prosperity for EU citizens. However, the international financial and economic crisis (2008) uncovered systematic flaws in EMU’s design (absence of a common economic, fiscal and social policy, no common budget, etc). To achieve convergence, the Member States should to make profound economic adjustments.

History as 'retrospective prediction'? On the limits of predicting the future by learning from the past

History as 'retrospective prediction'? On the limits of predicting the future by learning from the past

“If you don’t know about your past, you don’t know about your future” is probably one of the most repeated phrases in Sunday-speeches of politicians at official commemorations or historical anniversa- ries. Alas, the reality looks different. While history has a lot of lessons to offer, people don’t learn from it. This intervention will reflect on the reasons of this ignorance or oblivious of history and ask the question, whether the abundance of historical sources in the age of “big data of the past” will help to cure this

Robert Schuman et sa déclaration pour l’Europe (9 mai 1950): Histoire, actualité et perspectives

Le 9 mai 1950, Robert Schuman (1886-1963), ministre français des Affaires étrangères, propose la création de la Communauté européenne du charbon et de l'acier (CECA), jetant ainsi les bases d’une Europe unie, fondée sur la liberté, la démocratie et le partage. S’en suivent sept décennies durant lesquels le projet européen progresse de 6 à 27 membres et évolue au gré des succès et des crises, en apportant au continent la plus longue période de paix dans son histoire.
