Jewish Studies in the Digital Age

Jewish Studies in the Digital Age

As in all fields and disciplines of the humanities, Jewish Studies scholars find themselves confronted with the rapidly increasing availability of digital resources (data), new technologies to interrogate and analyze them (tools), and the question of how to critically engage with these developments. This volume discusses how the digital turn has affected the field of Jewish Studies. It explores the current state of the art and probes how digital developments can be harnessed to address the specific questions, challenges and problems that Jewish Studies scholars confront.

Digital History and the Politics of Digitization

Digital History and the Politics of Digitization

Much has been made in recent years of the transformative potential of digital resources and historical data for historical research. Historians seem to be flooded with retro-digitized and born-digital materials and tend to take these for granted, grateful for the opportunities they afford. In a research environment that increasingly privileges what is available online, the questions of why, where, and how we can access what we can access, and how it affects historical research have become ever more urgent.

Zum (vermeintlichen) Verschwinden des Reparierens seit den 1970er Jahren

Zum (vermeintlichen) Verschwinden des Reparierens seit den 1970er Jahren

In der Technikgeschichte wird oftmals angenommen, dass die industrielle Massenfertigung und die Herausbildung der so genannten Wegwerfgesellschaft zu einem Rückgang bzw. Verschwinden des Reparierens von Konsumgütern geführt haben. In „Shock of the Old“ spricht David Edgerton z.B. davon, dass sich aufgrund der gesunkenen Anschaffungspreise, das Reparieren einfacher Haushaltsgeräte nicht mehr lohne.

CREDIT CARDS AND CASHLESS PAYMENT: BANK COMMUNICATION POLICIES IN FRANCE, GERMANY AND LUXEMBOURG (1968-2015)

CREDIT CARDS AND CASHLESS PAYMENT: BANK COMMUNICATION POLICIES IN FRANCE, GERMANY AND LUXEMBOURG (1968-2015)

“Pecunia non olet”. Ironically, this Latin dictum strongly relates to the 20th and 21st century if one considers how banks dematerialised constantly money and changed the way a society deals with deposits. By implementing quite radical changes to the concept of money, banks became an accelerating element for social and technological innovation. Our research project within the field of computerisation and digitalisation concentrates on banking activities and services from a European perspective.

Combiner lecture proche et distante: l’exemple de la viralité en ligne

Cette intervention s’intéressera à la combinaison de la lecture proche et distante, des échelles micro et macro, en proposant de réfléchir aux enjeux, outils, défis et parfois limites de ce qui est qualifié de scalable reading . Des recherches en cours sur la viralité en ligne et les mèmes, et notamment le cas du Harlem Shake, seront pris pour cas d'étude, avant d’inviter les participants à penser à leur tour leur sujet en terme de scalable reading .

Toy created by an Ostarbeiter

Toy created by an Ostarbeiter

During the war, the steel industry in Esch played an important strategic role for the Germans. To ensure and increase production, unskilled additional labour was needed. Thus, the German occupiers resorted to the occupied peoples of Soviet Union and Poland, who were transported to Luxembourg to work in the steel mills and mines. The first so called Ostarbeiter entered Luxembourg during October 1942 and were placed in different barracks called Ostarbeiterlager. Most of these barracks were located in the south of Luxembourg, close to the iron and steel industries.

The Politics of Graves – Negotiations, Practice and Reactions about Fallen German Soldiers of World War Two and Their Resting Places in Russia

The Politics of Graves – Negotiations, Practice and Reactions about Fallen German Soldiers of World War Two and Their Resting Places in Russia

The coming to terms with the past is essential as a negotiating point in interstate relations, especially in the consequences of the Second World War. Not only the question towards compensation, guilt and victimhood but as well in numbers and losses of humans - and their remains. The dealing of the commemoration of the dead and their resting places makes an integral part in the history politics. After the end of the Soviet Union, the new Russian Federation signed an agreement with the Federal Republic of Germany on the war graves in both countries.

Modéliser l’information archéologique à l’ère du Web sémantique

Modéliser l’information archéologique à l’ère du Web sémantique

Face aux constantes mutations technologiques, il est important d’adapter les pratiques professionnelles en archéologie. Cependant, cette adaptation ne peut se réussir que si elle tient pleinement compte des fondements épistémologiques de la discipline.

Terra Mosana. Les réalités 3D et augmentée à l’Archéoforum

Le recours aux nouvelles technologies dans un contexte muséal s’est amplifié ces dernières années. Les exemples deviennent nombreux et prennent des directions multiples. La dimension supplémentaire offerte par les réalités augmentée et virtuelle au sein même du contenu et de la narration des institutions muséales s’avère définitivement enthousiasmante et ouvre le champ des possibles.

Crowdsourcing as “Live” Collection – Project Warlux – War Experiences in Luxembourg

In February 2021, a team at the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History at the University of Luxembourg launched a call for contributions as part of the project, “WARLUX – War Experiences in Luxembourg,” funded by the Luxembourgish Research Fund (Fond National de la Recherche). The team researches the personal side of the Luxembourgish war generation’s history. To uncover the individual experiences of these men, women and families, the team asked the public to share their family stories, letters, diaries, photographs, and other personal documents.
