Environment and settlement location choice in Stone Age Estonia

Environment and settlement location choice in Stone Age Estonia

The location choice of Stone Age settlements has been long considered to be influenced by environmental conditions. Proximity to water and sandy soils are most typical examples of those conditions. The notion of the influence resulted from the evidence from a relatively small amount of sites. During the recent decades the number of known settlements has increased to a level where statistical assessment of relation between environmental characteristics and settlement location choice is possible.

From Kinora to Small-Gauge: An Experimental Media Archaeological Approach to Early-Twentieth Century Home Cinema

From Kinora to Small-Gauge: An Experimental Media Archaeological Approach to Early-Twentieth Century Home Cinema

In this workshop contribution, I present my post-doctoral study within the "Doing Experimental Media Archaeology" (DEMA) research project in which I examine the genealogy of home cinema and amateur moviemaking as early-twentieth century practices by means of a comparative, intermedial and experimental media archaeological approach.

A quoi rêvent les hommes? Les imaginaires du Minitel

A quoi rêvent les hommes? Les imaginaires du Minitel

« À quoi rêvent les hommes ? »… sur les murs des villes françaises s’affichent cette question et cette publicité pour le 3615 Ulla, lancé en 1987 par le groupe AGL. L’analyse des imaginaires du Minitel ne se réduit toutefois ni à ceux du Minitel rose, ni à l’imaginaire masculin. Bien sûr ces messageries dites conviviales ont contribué à nourrir l’image parfois sulfureuse du Minitel et sont devenues un des symboles des usages de la petite boîte beige.

Luxembourg: A Country Survey

Luxembourg: A Country Survey

Beginning in the 20th century, Luxembourg experienced several periods of transition. The largely agriculture-based economy became industrialized, driven by a powerful steel industry which remained the dominant sector from the immediate post-Second World War years to the mid-1970s. The country had a considerable competitive advantage in this respect owing to iron ore deposits in Luxembourg itself and in the neighbouring French region of Lorraine.

Psychiatric knowledge dissimination at international conferences (1860-1914): 'those who have the interest of science at heart, don't distinguish between nationalities'

Psychiatric knowledge dissimination at international conferences (1860-1914): 'those who have the interest of science at heart, don't distinguish between nationalities'

The amount of international conferences that were organised over the nineteenth century increased rapidly, and formed an ideal environment for discussions amongst peers and establishing knowledge transfers. Medical and psychiatric conferences were no exception. However, a study into psychiatric conferences on a larger scale has not yet been conducted. Adopting a transnational perspective is essential, and while this approach is gaining more attention from historians more generally, it is only slowly reaching the history of psychiatry.

IN FOR A PENNY: A LEGAL AND DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF REPARATIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON EUROPEAN (DIS?) INTEGRATION

IN FOR A PENNY: A LEGAL AND DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF REPARATIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON EUROPEAN (DIS?) INTEGRATION

This article summarizes the legal, historical and political developments in regards to the issue of WWII reparations. It suggests that due to the separation between the historical and legal fields which have examined the issue of WWII reparations, no generally accepted notion about their status exists either in the historical, legal or political spheres. It is this lack of clarity that has greatly contributed to this issue remaining unresolved thus far.

Tracing the ‘Jewish Freedom Fighter’. The legacy of Naftali Botwin and the construction of a transnational cult of Jewish heroes

This article discusses the transnational heroic cult that developed in Yiddish communist circles around the figure of Naftali Botwin, a young Polish-Jewish communist who was executed by Polish authorities in the city of Lwów, following a trial in which he was convicted for assassinating a police infiltrator in the ranks of the Polish Communist Party (KPP).

Interview with Dr. Melvin Wevers (KNAW Humanities Cluster, Amsterdam)

In this interview, Melvin Wevers begins by talking about his career and his contribution to the first big text mining project in the Netherlands. He shares his experiences in approaching, working and interpreting the data and discusses the risks of both data-driven and hypothesis-driven research. He then talks about the new developments in computer vision which can be relevant to historians and about the importance of modelling in digital enabled historical research.

Trop d'impôts pour les célibataires au Luxembourg? (Bref aperçu historique comparatif sur la fiscalité des célibataires dans le monde).

Trop d'impôts pour les célibataires au Luxembourg? (Bref aperçu historique comparatif sur la fiscalité des célibataires dans le monde).

Le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg, né dans sa forme actuelle en 1839, est issu, indirectement, de la révolution belge. Parmi les impôts indirects perçus sous le régime hollandais après 1815 figurent:le droit de mouture sur les céréales, donc un impôt sur le pain, le droit d’abattage qui frappe les bouchers et éleveurs, l’impôt sur le vin qui touche les petits viticulteurs de la Moselle, les accises sur l’alcool qui pénalisent les distilleries industrielles du nord du pays et les milliers de petites distilleries familiales.
