Psychiatric knowledge dissimination at international conferences (1860-1914): 'those who have the interest of science at heart, don't distinguish between nationalities'

Psychiatric knowledge dissimination at international conferences (1860-1914): 'those who have the interest of science at heart, don't distinguish between nationalities'

The amount of international conferences that were organised over the nineteenth century increased rapidly, and formed an ideal environment for discussions amongst peers and establishing knowledge transfers. Medical and psychiatric conferences were no exception. However, a study into psychiatric conferences on a larger scale has not yet been conducted. Adopting a transnational perspective is essential, and while this approach is gaining more attention from historians more generally, it is only slowly reaching the history of psychiatry.

IN FOR A PENNY: A LEGAL AND DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF REPARATIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON EUROPEAN (DIS?) INTEGRATION

IN FOR A PENNY: A LEGAL AND DIPLOMATIC HISTORY OF REPARATIONS AND THEIR IMPACT ON EUROPEAN (DIS?) INTEGRATION

This article summarizes the legal, historical and political developments in regards to the issue of WWII reparations. It suggests that due to the separation between the historical and legal fields which have examined the issue of WWII reparations, no generally accepted notion about their status exists either in the historical, legal or political spheres. It is this lack of clarity that has greatly contributed to this issue remaining unresolved thus far.

He then talks about the new developments in computer vision which can be relevant to historians and about the importance of modelling in digital enabled historical research.

L'administration des postes et des télégraphes : une institution entre responsabilité internationale et intérêts nationaux

L'administration des postes et des télégraphes : une institution entre responsabilité internationale et intérêts nationaux

Dans la deuxième moitié du XIXe siècle, le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg devient membre de deux organismes multilatéraux des (télé)communications, à savoir l’Union télégraphique internationale (UIT) et l’Union postale générale (UPU). Y siègent, non pas des diplomates, peu actifs dans un pays soumis, depuis le traité de Londres de 1867, à un statut de neutralité perpétuelle et désarmée, mais des représentants de l’administration des postes et des télégraphes.

L'espace sportif européen: circulations, organisations et identité européenne

Dès la fin du xixe siècle, l’espace européen est le cadre d’un développement précoce des échanges sportifs et tient un rôle pionnier dans l’organisation internationale des sports. L’homogénéisation des pratiques et la mise en place de compétitions continentales, processus commencé dans l’entre-deux-guerres et qui se renforce après la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, a comme effet la constitution d’un espace sportif européen.

Oral History as a multimedia and multidimensional presentation challenge

Oral History as a multimedia and multidimensional presentation challenge

Oral History is a multidisciplinary, multinational field based on a format of recorded, usually sit-down interviews, where the past is documented through personal narratives of life experience. In the early 2000’s, a new approach to processing and managing oral histories was introduced based on timecode indexing made possible by software environments.

Interview with Prof. Dr Steven E. Jones (University of South Florida)

In this interview, Professor Steven Jones talks about his career and training in textual studies. Because of his specific interest in the materiality of texts in archives, he soon became interested in the relationship of the physical and the digital as a theoretical problem and methodological issue. He then talks about the myth of Roberto Busa as “founding father of digital humanities” which he sets out to complement with history.

Four Jewish stateless families between the millstones of Luxembourg authorities

Four Jewish stateless families between the millstones of Luxembourg authorities

Our research, among others, attempts to find answers to the questions: How Luxembourg administration dealt with Jewish refugees who had lost their citizenship arriving to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg from the East. Were there any particular differences between genders in the process of acceptance? Did Luxembourgish authorities distinguish or give priority to citizens of particular nations?
