PROJECT WARLUX Ambiguities in biographies of Luxembourgish conscripts during and after WWII

PROJECT WARLUX Ambiguities in biographies of Luxembourgish conscripts during and after WWII

More than 10,000 Luxembourgish soldiers and recruits and an unknown number of Luxembourgish men and women wore German uniforms during WWII in armed forces and civil organisations, such as the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, armed police forces and the Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD). The "WARLUX" project, based at the University of Luxembourg in the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH), intends to collect the biographical data of Luxembourgers who were drafted into the German Army and the Labour Service.

Appearances Matter: The Visual in Educational History

Appearances Matter: The Visual in Educational History

The visual turn recovers new pasts. With a focus on education, this book seeks to present a body of reflections that question a certain historicism. It renovates historiographical debate about how to conceptualize visual media while presenting new themes and methods for researchers. Images are interrogated as part of régimes of the visible, of a history of visual technologies and visual practices.

Tagungsbericht: Rethinking the Histories and  Legacies of Industrial Cities

Tagungsbericht: Rethinking the Histories and Legacies of Industrial Cities

The history of (Western) European industrial cities is often told as a tragic tale of rise and decline: from rapid industrialisation in the late 19th century and economic prosperity during the Trente glorieuses to the structural changes of the late 1970s and the subsequent deindustrialisation of the 1980s and 1990s – decades in which most mines and steelworks closed down, unemployment rates went up, new social problems emerged, workers’ identities eroded, and once prosperous urban centres became faced with shrinking populations and empty stores in their shopping streets.

Performing a historical re-enactment: the making of a 16mm home movie

Performing a historical re-enactment: the making of a 16mm home movie

In this presentation, I will “perform” the making of a 16mm home movie based on my media archaeological experiments with an original Ciné-Kodak film camera from 1930. A split screen montage shows the recorded analogue film fragments besides footage that illustrates the process of making the film captured by my documentation equipment, including a digital video camera, GoPro and 360 degree camera.

Understanding through Experimentation: An Experimental Media Archaeological Approach to Early Twentieth-Century Home Movie Making

Understanding through Experimentation: An Experimental Media Archaeological Approach to Early Twentieth-Century Home Movie Making

This presentation addresses the question in what ways visual media have contributed to the construction of a specific view on twentieth-century century (family) life by means of an experimental media archaeological approach to early home movie making. Based on hands-on experiments with an original Ciné-Kodak 16mm film camera from 1930, it will be shown how filming one’s family was never truly a neutral practice of capturing everyday life.

BREXIT: état des lieux

BREXIT: état des lieux

Au 31 janvier 2020 à minuit (heure de Bruxelles), le Royaume-Uni a quitté l'Union européenne. Cette sortie n'est pourtant pas totale : conformément à l’accord de retrait, le pays est entré dans une transition qui lui permet de négocier sa future relation avec l’UE, tout en restant provisoirement intégré à un certain nombre de politiques européennes. Cette phase doit prendre fin au 31 décembre 2020 au plus tôt, mais les pourparlers semblent actuellement en impasse.

L'Europe des droits fondamentaux

Sept décennies après la signature de la Convention européenne des droits de l’homme (Rome, 4 novembre 1950) et vingt ans après la proclamation la Charte des droits fondamentaux de l’Union européenne (Nice, 7 décembre 2000), la sauvegarde des libertés fondamentales et de l’État de droit mis en cause par certains État membres se trouvent parmi les défis majeurs de l’Europe.
