Borderland Studies Meets Child Studies. A European Encounter

Borderland Studies Meets Child Studies. A European Encounter

With the demise of four multinational empires at the end of the First World War (Russian, German, Habsburg and Ottoman), nationalist forces all over Europe claimed the right to a territory for what they considered to be their own people. The peace treaties resulting from the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 caused a major redrawing of the map of Europe. As a result of the Treaty of Versailles, Germany handed over a considerable amount of its territory at its Western, Northern and, most significantly, Eastern borders, to neighbouring states.

De Société de Médecine Mentale de Belgique in transnationaal perspectief (1869-1900)

De Société de Médecine Mentale de Belgique in transnationaal perspectief (1869-1900)

The Société de Médecine Mentale de Belgique (SMMB) was created in the 19 th century. This society united the Belgian psychiatrists, made knowledge sharing possible and raised awareness of problems in the Belgian psychiatric world. During the meetings of the society, ideas and opinions of Belgian physicians as well as their foreign colleagues, were exchanged. Until now, research on these transnational contacts, particularly in Belgium, had been very superficial.

Tell us about...

By means of open and sometimes slightly “shifted” questions (for example, on their enthusiasm as Internet users rather than developers – in fact in the early days of the Inter- net, they are usually “user-developers” –, or what they would change or relive in the his- tory of the Internet), well-known pioneering actors Vinton Cerf, Steve Crocker, Abhaya Induruwa, Dennis Jennings, John Klensin, G erard Le Lann, Paul Mockapetris and Ted Nel- son address a vast array of issues and topics which fully align with those of our journal: protocols and technical architectures, the applications and use

Adventures in Cultural Learning

Adventures in Cultural Learning

In periods of disillusionment and crisis (war, occupation, migration, industrialisation), a greater “cultural vitality” seems to appear. Indeed, troubled pasts and presents have frequently acted as fertile breeding grounds for cultural productions and artistic manifestations — the cradle for a variety of ‘adventures in cultural learning’.

The Failure of Binaural Stereo. Sound Engineers and the Introduction of Artificial Head Microphones

The Failure of Binaural Stereo. Sound Engineers and the Introduction of Artificial Head Microphones

In 1973, binaural stereo was introduced to the German public during the International Broadcasting Fair in Berlin. Based on the development of artificial head microphones, binaural stereo provided facsimile sound recordings that enabled listeners, when listening with headphones, to experience the spatial acoustics of the original recording situation. During the fair, Berlin-based radio station Radio in the American Sector (RIAS) broadcast the first binaural radio play.

Memories of a Dying Industry: Sense and Identity in a British Paper Mill

Memories of a Dying Industry: Sense and Identity in a British Paper Mill

Frogmore paper mill is a kind of time machine that allows historians of technology and the senses to study mechanized paper-making as it was done one hundred years ago. Before the introduction of instrumentation and automatic process control paper-making depended profoundly on the embodied skills of the workers. This paper will focus on the sensory knowledge and skills required for monitoring and controlling old machinery. Investigating skills-in-use will help to unravel the close link between sensing and acting to keep a continuous production process stable and running.

I need a research tool to…

A whole range of digital tools exists nowadays to help historians in their daily work, but how to choose the “perfect” one for your needs? Should you lose time searching for the holy Grail, or take the risk to try out and study tools that, in the end, might not fit your needs?
