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

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.

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".

Digital History and the Politics of Digitization

Digital History and the Politics of Digitization

This paper will present the first findings of an ongoing research project. It is about the digital resources we work with as historians; in the first place with regard to what is being digitized, the sources and data, and to a lesser degree the metadata, notwithstanding the latter’s profound political aspects and effects, e.g. with regard to access. To avoid misunderstandings: it is not about the politics of digital humanities more broadly conceived; e.g.
