Bringing Digital Oral History to Luxembourg

Bringing Digital Oral History to Luxembourg

Oral history is a field with a growing digital component and, as with other DH fields, computer-based techniques and systems have revolutionized the way we process and present content. One particular set of activities, which I refer to as Oral History Digital Indexing (OHDI), has been important in shaping new processes and methods for organization, analysis, and curation of digital oral history. I have been directly involved with this work in the United States and am currently working in Luxembourg to explore what aspects of OHDI will be appropriate in Europe.

Digital History as Trading Zone? Reflections from a Doctoral Training Unit

Digital History as Trading Zone? Reflections from a Doctoral Training Unit

This paper addresses the question how Digital History “trading zones” are being constituted in practice and how they are situated in physical working environments. The analysis is based on a case study of the Doctoral Training Unit (DTU) “Digital History and Hermeneutics”, an interdisciplinary research and training programme that was established at the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) of the University of Luxembourg.

Central place foraging and hunter-gatherer settlement patterns: how resource depletion influences population concentration

Central place foraging and hunter-gatherer settlement patterns: how resource depletion influences population concentration

Settlement patterns are one of the main products of the Stone Age archaeological research. Their
emergence processes can be explained by different models of settlement and mobility choices
done by past inhabitants. In current study we explore central place foraging (CPF) model of huntergatherers
as a tool for exploring formation of settlement patterns.
CFP model is used for describing mobility choices of hunter-gatherer groups. It implies the groups
settle at a central location and make logistic forays to surrounding areas foraging for required

Making sense of digital oral history

Making sense of digital oral history

Over the past three decades, oral history (OH) has been deeply transformed by the advent of digital technologies. The digital turn leads to growing number of online OH databases, resulting from “process-oriented” projects (i.e., life story interviews conducted without specific research questions). Large amounts of such data have been deposited in archives, available not only for secondary analysis by researchers who did not participate in the initial data collection, but also for other social actors like teachers, educators, and documentarists.

Experience Design for Digital Cultural Heritage

The experience of visiting museums has evolved to extend beyond the walls of the institutions themselves into digital spaces, where online galleries, exhibitions, and virtual tours invite audiences to explore arts and culture from their personal devices. However, generating interest from the public around these platforms remains a challenge, and the digital experience rarely compares to an

The History of the Russian Worker Colony in Wiltz in 1920s-1930s

The History of the Russian Worker Colony in Wiltz in 1920s-1930s

The guided tour in Wiltz and especially at the former leather factory "Ideal", where around 200 Russian migrants were working in the 1920s-1930s, was offered for the young Russian speaking audience of scouts. Besides the historical context and the view on the migration "from outside" the tour offered a meeting with a descendant of the Russian emigrants in Wiltz and gave the possibility to hear about the migration from "within".

Audiovisual work-Podcast: The Monster under the Bed - Brief history of the European Union Budget

Audiovisual work-Podcast: The Monster under the Bed - Brief history of the European Union Budget

PODCAST: The budget of the European Union has three pillars: its expenditure, its financing and its audit. The podcast "The Monster under the Bed" looks at the origins of the budget, its development through multiannual planning and annual budgeting, and the institutions involved in its financing, adoption, control and in the audit process. Since the creation of the European Coal and Steal Community (ECSC) in 1952, there has been a tension over budgeting among the European institutions and the Member States, and a close link between reforms to expenditure and those to the financing.

From financial and monetary innovation to Economic and Monetary Union: the European Investment Bank in the Luxembourg ecosystem

Drawing on archives and oral history sources, this paper aims to illustrate the political and regulatory context surrounding the EIB’s relocation to Luxembourg, exploring how the EIB became an integral part of the Luxembourg financial ecosystem and how its main stakeholders (banks, LuxSE, other institutions, regulatory authorities, people, networks, etc.) worked together to encourage financial and monetary innovation before the introduction of the European single currency (EUA, EURCO, ECU) and to pave the way for the establishment and consolidation of the euro.
