Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Informationsfreiheit und Datenschutz: Das Luxemburger Archivgesetz von  2018 und die zeithistorische Forschung

Im Spannungsfeld zwischen Informationsfreiheit und Datenschutz: Das Luxemburger Archivgesetz von 2018 und die zeithistorische Forschung

Im Sommer 2018 trat in Luxemburg erstmals ein Archivgesetz in Kraft, das nach jahrelangen Verhandlungen – leider ohne Beteiligung der Archivnutzer*innen – zustande kam. Es war lange erwartet und definierte für das Großherzogtum (endlich!), wie Quellen aus Ministerien und Verwaltungen archivalisch behandelt werden müssen. Das Gesetz schuf damit den Rahmen für eine notwendige und geregelte Ablieferungs- und Archivierungspolitik sowie den erforderlichen Einsatz von geschultem Personal in staatlichen und kommunalen Verwaltungen.

How to Design Web Archives Research

How to Design Web Archives Research

The aim of this guide is to provide a starting point for using web archives as a source for social science research. With the migration of many aspects of the so- cial world online, fundamental questions have been raised about how and even when social science research happens in the online sphere (Karpf, 2012). Web archives, or archives of content and communications from the Web through time, crucially provide the means for retrospectively studying dynamic media and online interactions that are often subject to change and deletion.

Zur Transformation ökologischer Beziehungen: Manifest für Bildungsgeschichte nach COVID-19

Zur Transformation ökologischer Beziehungen: Manifest für Bildungsgeschichte nach COVID-19

Dieser Beitrag richtet sich auf die Fotografie als aktive Intervention innerhalb einer geschädigten oder gefährdeten Umwelt und bedient sich dieses Mediums, um neue Perspektiven der Bildungsgeschichte – in Bezug auf die bereits geschriebene und die zukünftige – zu entwickeln. Diese Perspektiven werden besonders deutlich, wenn sie vor dem Hintergrund gegenwärtiger Debatten zu Fragen der planetarischen Verantwortung und einer geteilten Welt entwickelt werden, die auch unsere Vorstellungen von Erziehung und Bildung prägen.

The Minett as Palimpsest

The Minett as Palimpsest

The landscape in some parts of the Minett can be considered as a kind of palimpsest. For historians and archaeologists, a palimpsest is a writing medium, for example a parchment or a manuscript, that is used several times by erasing the previous writing. The landscape of the Minett has also changed greatly over the centuries as a result of human intervention. The soil can tell many overlapping and entangled stories. Some things have been completely erased, while other traces of past times have been left.

Digitalität

Digitalität

Wurde die „Aura des Authentischen“ von Martin Sabrow als „Mythos der Moderne“ bezeichnet, so ließe sich die Aura des Virtuellen als Mythos des digitalen Zeitalters qualifizieren (Sabrow 2016, 30). Die massenhafte Digitalisierung von historischen Zeugnissen und deren online-Verfügbarkeit im Internet hat der Sehnsucht nach dem Authentischen, dem Ursprünglichen oder dem Echten eine neue Wende beschert.

‘As Efficient as a Factory’: Architectural and Managerial Discourses on Government Office Buildings in Belgium, 1919-39

‘As Efficient as a Factory’: Architectural and Managerial Discourses on Government Office Buildings in Belgium, 1919-39

This article investigates the impact of managerial ideologies on projects for new
governmental office buildings in Belgium in the 1920s and 1930s. Following the prewar
publication of F. W. Taylor’s ‘scientific management’ theories, the scientisation of
office activities was propagated by efficiency experts throughout the western world. In
Belgium, as in France, the work of the mining engineer Henri Fayol was particularly
influential. According to Fayol, private and public bureaucracies had to follow identical

Voir ou être vu : analyses de visibilité depuis le site de Chèvremont (commune de Chaudfontaine, Belgique)

Le site de Chèvremont est connu dans l’histoire liégeoise depuis le Haut Moyen-Âge. L’archéologie a montré que la colline a été fréquentée depuis au moins la période néolithique. Intuitivement, tous les auteurs qui se sont rendus sur le site décrivent un endroit d’où le panorama est impressionnant. Nous tentons ici d’utiliser les analyses de visibilité pour mesurer et comparer l’ampleur de la visibilité atteinte depuis plusieurs points du plateau sommital.

Digital Hermeneutics: The Reflexive Turn in Digital Public History?

Digital Hermeneutics: The Reflexive Turn in Digital Public History?

The digital – be it in forms of data, infrastructures, or tools – interferes atall levels in the practice of doing public history. This chapter argues that digitalpublic historians have to reflect more deeply on the epistemological consequencesof their digital practices. It proposes the concept of “digital hermeneutics” as a conceptual framework for this reflection. As a “hermeneutics of in-betweenness,” digital hermeneutics investigates the trading zone of digital public history where new digital methods and approaches meet disciplinary traditions and epistemic cultures of history.
