This Hard Minett Land. Texte über Luxemburgs Süden, inspiriert von Bruce-Springsteen-Songs. Mit Illustrationen von Dan Altmann

This book is an invitation to a very special voyage of discovery through Luxembourg's south: around forty Luxembourgish, German, French, Italian, Belgian writers and historians have been inspired by Bruce Springsteen's songs and have written texts about the Luxembourg-Lorraine iron ore basin, "de Minett", and about those who live and have lived there, were born there or immigrated there, worked there, loved there, dreamed there, hoped, struggled, succeeded - or failed.

Wiener Juden und Jüdinnen in Luxemburg in den Jahren nach dem "Anschluss" 1938

Wiener Juden und Jüdinnen in Luxemburg in den Jahren nach dem "Anschluss" 1938

Am Tag des „Anschlusses“ Österreichs an das Deutsche Reich am 12. März 1938 lebten in Wien rund 170.000 nach den „Nürnberger Rassengesetzen“ als Juden kategorisierte Menschen. Es wurde von Tag zu Tag bedrohlicher und gefährlicher als jüdische Person in Wien zu verbleiben und durch Adolf Eichmanns „Zentralstelle für jüdische Auswanderung“ wurden die Betroffenen schrittweise ihrer Lebensgrundlage beraubt. Gleichzeitig gab es international zu diesem Zeitpunkt kaum noch Staaten, die bereit waren, eine größere Anzahl an jüdischen Flüchtlingen aufzunehmen.

Luxembourg Economy

Luxembourg Economy

Situated in the centre of Europe and bordered by two major powers, France and Germany, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has always sought to maintain an openness to its neighbours, for reasons of security and to give itself access to larger markets. In the 19th century Luxembourg was part of the German customs and trade union (Zollverein). Following the First World War, the country embarked on a process of economic and monetary integration with Belgium via the BLU and it played a driving role in the Benelux Economic Union.

Australian Indigenous Life Writing: Analysing Discourses with Word Embedding Modelling

The genre of Australian Aboriginal autobiography is a literature of significant socio-political importance, with authors sharing a history different to the one previously asserted by the European settlers which ignored or misrepresented Australia's First People.

Paper and ink in the Soviet camp 188 in Tambov: capturing the camp life of Luxembourger conscripts

In the talk by Inna Ganschow, the camp experience in the Soviet Union will be treated as a consequence of the forced conscription, namely in its artistic processing. Secretly written diaries and letters of Luxembourg Wehrmacht soldiers or poems of deceased comrades learned by them by heart, they also reached their homeland.

“Challenge accepted”. The many sources to catch the history of virality and memes

Gifs and memes (Kaplan and Nova, 2016), “buzz” on the Web and social networks are inherent to digital cultures since the very first steps of the Web (i.e., Godwin’s Law, Dancing babies, Hamster Dance, cf. McGrath, 2019).

“Small is impactful”. Memes and Politics

From the Hampster Dance and the Dancing Baby in the second half of the 1990s to the hijacking meme of Bernie and his mittens at the US presidential inauguration or the images of the Evergreen blocked in the Suez Canal, memes have become in the last twenty years an important part of our digital cultures (Shifman, 2014), whose often absurd, playful, corrosive and viral character cannot hide also multiple political dimensions.
