Ostbelgische Katharsis? Die Herrmann-Niermann-Affäre als Medienevent

Ostbelgische Katharsis? Die Herrmann-Niermann-Affäre als Medienevent

Im Sommer des Jahres 1987 ereignet sich eines der spektakulärsten Medienereignisse in der jüngeren Zeitgeschichte Ostbelgiens. Der überraschende Rücktritt von Lorenz Paasch als Sankt Vither Schöffe und sein beruflicher Wechsel als Geschäftsführer der in Düsseldorf angesiedelten Hermann-Niermann- Stiftung inspiriert BRF-Journalist Freddy Derwahl zu einer folgenschweren Spekulation über eine angebliche Nachbarschaft der Stiftung zu rechtsradikalen Kreisen. Die „Niermann-Affäre“

Presenter: Healing the Nation. Summer Camps for Children in the Belgian-German Borderlands

The paper discusses how the newly gained scientific knowledge on underaged asymptomatic TBS carriers served Belgian and German states as a pretext to commence a summer treatment camp infrastructure to reach out to the children whose home grounds had switched from German to Belgian state sovereignty after WWI.

Perceiving deindustrialisation in Luxembourg and East Germany. Industrial decline within the ARBED company in transnational perspective

Perceiving deindustrialisation in Luxembourg and East Germany. Industrial decline within the ARBED company in transnational perspective

When the Luxembourg steel company ARBED acquired the Maxhütte Unterwellenborn steelworks in Thuringia in 1992, it became involved in a far-reaching process of industrial decline that had its roots in the disintegration of the Eastern Bloc in 1989. 15 years earlier, ARBED itself had gone through a similar process of decline in Luxembourg, triggered by the economic crisis of 1974.

The Fund Code. A History of Investment Funds in Luxembourg from the Holding Act to the UCITS Legislation (1929-1989)

The Fund Code. A History of Investment Funds in Luxembourg from the Holding Act to the UCITS Legislation (1929-1989)

This thesis introduces a comprehensive narrative of the history of Luxembourg’s investment funds, tracing their evolution from the incorporation of closed-end funds as holding companies in the 1930s to the enactment of two harmonization fund laws in the 1980s. Through a focus on the actors "behind the industry", the thesis identifies three enduring patterns. First, policymakers consistently employed "bifurcation of sovereignty" practices to stimulate the local fund market during systemic economic crises (notably, during the interwar years and the steel crisis of the late 1970s).

Probing the Impact of Technology in Historical Research: The Role of Transnational Networks

Probing the Impact of Technology in Historical Research: The Role of Transnational Networks

This paper is related to my current 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. My paper focuses on a key aspect, the circulation of technological knowledge and expertise among transnational networks of historians, archivists, and librarians, the ways in which these networks were constituted and their transformative influence on historical knowledge production.

Parcours de vie de personnes porteuses d’un handicap à l’heure de la désinstitutionnalisation psychiatrique en Belgique

Parcours de vie de personnes porteuses d’un handicap à l’heure de la désinstitutionnalisation psychiatrique en Belgique

Au regard du nombre actuel de lits psychiatriques toujours élevé dans le royaume, il est aisé de penser que la désinstitutionnalisation psychiatrique en Belgique n’a pas eu lieu. Cependant, un analyse plus fine permet de révéler un réalité d’avantage nuancée. En effet, la transformation de l’asile en hôpital psychiatrique dans la seconde moitié du XXe siècle entraine la sortie de certaines catégories de patients traditionnellement placées dans les institutions psychiatriques à défaut d’autres perspectives de prise en charge.

Europäische Transfers oder nationale Konzepte? Produzenten elektrotechnischer Konsumgüter und die Transnationalität ihrer Marketingstrategien und –organisation in den langen 1960er Jahren

Europäische Transfers oder nationale Konzepte? Produzenten elektrotechnischer Konsumgüter und die Transnationalität ihrer Marketingstrategien und –organisation in den langen 1960er Jahren

Kennzeichnend für die «langen» 1960er Jahre in Westeuropa ist aus konsumhistorischer Sicht die enorme Dynamik der Entwicklung des Massenkonsums. Der Verkäufermarkt der unmittelbaren Nachkriegszeit wurde ab Ende der 1950er Jahre durch eine verschärfte Konkurrenzsituation abgelöst, im Zuge derer Konsumgüterproduzenten statt der Produktion den Verbraucher und seine Wünsche ins Zentrum ihrer Überlegungen zu rücken suchten. Das führte zu einer zunehmenden Verbreitung des Marketingkonzepts, auch unter Produzenten elektrotechnischer Konsumgüter wie Braun oder Telefunken.

L'IA au passé : Retours et prospectives autour de l’Intelligence Artificielle comme champs disciplinaire

The starting points of the presentation consist of some examples of answers, in text and image, generated by chatbots such as ChatGPT and Stable Diffusion, to questions such as: Could you give us a short history of artificial intelligence, from the beginning to the present? Could you generate an image to represent the history of artificial intelligence?

Historische Medien und Maschinelles Lernen. Vom Zusammenspiel von Infrastrukturen, Methoden und Akteuren

Historische Medien spiegeln die Werte- und Wissenshorizonte vergangener Zeiten wider. Für ihre Erforschung werden auch zunehmend Methoden des maschinellen Lernens genutzt. In den letzten Jahren sind neben Volltextsuchen weitere Methoden hinzugekommen: Topic modeling, Bildähnlichkeitsanalysen, Text Reuse Detection, Spracherkennung, oder Word Embeddings eröffnen jeweils neue Zugänge zu großen Textsammlungen.

impresso. Media Monitoring of the Past

impresso. Media Monitoring of the Past

In the impresso project, a team of computational linguists, historians and designers strive to enable data-driven analyses of historical media across time, institutional silos, media types and languages. To this end we compile a corpus of historical newspaper and radio collections with the help of Western European partners, enrich it using text mining techniques and develop user interfaces for their exploration and computational analysis.

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?
