How can data visualization support interdisciplinary research? LuxTIME: studying historical exposomics in Belval

The Luxembourg Time Machine (LuxTIME) is an interdisciplinary project that studies the historical exposome during the industrialization of the Minett region, located in the south of Luxembourg. Exposome research encompasses all external and internal non-genetic factors influencing the health of the population, such as air pollution, green spaces, noise, work conditions, physical activity, and diet.

Don’t try to be original! Web archives as ‘reborn digital sources’

Web archives as “born digital” source collections come with multiple biases, both concerning the archived web pages and web sites themselves, the web collections (notably those created on precise events, like Paris terrorist attacks and the COVID-crisis), and the metadata.

Communiquer la science en réseaux... de données

Communiquer la science en réseaux... de données

Résumé de l'ouvrage : Si communiquer est aujourd’hui pour les scientifiques une injonction, ce livre a pour ambition d’explorer les arcanes des processus éditoriaux, communicationnels ou de vulgarisation, et de mettre en lumière les évolutions de cette activité inhérente aux sciences. La communication s’est ainsi, au fil du temps, codifiée, normalisée, du fait des scientifiques, d’institutions académiques d’État, d’éditeurs ou d’entreprises médiatiques. De façon générale, elle nécessite un émetteur, un message et un destinataire.

Digital History and the Politics of Digitisation

Digital History and the Politics of Digitisation

This paper will explore a key question for historians today: what are the politics of cultural heritage digitisation and its implications for historical research? And how to assess this from a global perspective? 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.

From text to data to networks

From text to data to networks

Many network analysis projects rely on somewhat ready-made sources for data; for example, email logs, questionnaires, church registers, letter exchanges and trade relations make it relatively easy to identify who is connected to whom and how. It is, however, considerably more difficult to extract quantifiable data from text. Some issues to consider here are: how can we bridge the gap between the depth of hermeneutics and data analysis? How can we systematize text interpretation?

What's digital about digital heritage ?

What's digital about digital heritage ?

Digital heritage acquires a definition and an international status in 2003 when a charter is devoted to it by UNESCO. Whether digitised or born-digital, digital heritage has become an entire area of the conservation work of heritage institutions, particularly large national libraries, faced with the need to preserve an increasing volume of so-called born-digital documents. Work has gone on since the 1990s to digitize documents, press content and paper books. Digital heritage didn’t wait until 2003 to gain momentum.

Self-Determination Theory Applied To Museum Website Experiences: Fulfill Visitor Needs, Increase Motivation, and Promote Engagement

Self-Determination Theory Applied To Museum Website Experiences: Fulfill Visitor Needs, Increase Motivation, and Promote Engagement

The rise of online experiences in the domain of cultural heritage offers new forms of interaction that are no longer limited by the physical presence of museums. However, sustaining online visitors’ engagement is challenging, and museum professionals seek to understand how to increase motivation. We conducted a user study (N = 32) of three museum websites to investigate users’ intrinsic motivations to engage with the sites through observation, questionnaires, and semi-structured interviews.

VON POPULÄRER IDENTITÄT UND NATIONALER POPKULTUR - DIE „SCHUEBERFOUER“ IN DEN LANGEN 1960ER JAHREN: EINE SCHAUBUDE DER NATION?

Der europäische Jahrmarkt hat sich im Laufe der Zeit vom Markt zum populären Fest entwickelt und wurde in der Nachkriegszeit zu einem wahrlichem Vergnügungsort der Massen. Der jährlich in Luxemburg stattfindende Jahrmarkt „Schueberfouer“ ist ein exemplarisches Beispiel für diese Entwicklung.

Archiving the Web during unforeseen events (terrorist attacks, war...)

Archiving the Web during unforeseen events (terrorist attacks, war...)

Web content and social networks are highly ephemeral and claim for fast reactions in case of disruptive events, in order to preserve them. As demonstrated with the Yugoslavian wars, national domains can disappear (Ben-David, 2016). Web archiving and the practice of collecting and preserving born digital content have been widely adopted by national libraries in Europe (in France, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Denmark and many other countries) since the 2000s (Brügger, 2018).

Historical exposomics: a manifesto

Historical exposomics: a manifesto

The exposome complements information captured in the genome by covering all external influences and internal (biological) responses of a human being from conception onwards. Such a paradigm goes beyond a single scientific discipline and instead requires a truly interdisciplinary approach. The concept of “historical exposomics” could help bridge the gap between “nature” and “nurture” using both natural and social archives to capture the influence of humans on earth (the Anthropocene) in an interdisciplinary manner.
