Roundtable Combating anti-Semitism in contemporary Europe
What is the state of anti-Semitism in Europe, and Luxembourg, today? How can it be situated within the broader context of rising hate speech and crime, online and offline? What methods are being proposed to combat it? How does it relate to politics and the broader memory battles that are being fought in Europe today? These will be the themes addressed during a round table discussion with the following participants:

Taxing intangible assets in Europe

Taxing intangible assets in Europe

The globalisation of the digital economy is indicative of a changing multidimensional paradigm driven by a number of factors: the primacy of intangible assets in value creation; a growing transnational and international dimension in the production and consumption of goods and services; the transition from human labour to artificial intelligence; the increasing dominance of networks of stakeholders over individual players; the emergence of new forms of sharing, creation, collaboration and innovation; and the need to harmonise rules, standards and policies (including in the area of taxation)

“If we think small, we stay small” - Introduction to the interview with Viviane Reding

In the line of women who have helped build Europe, Luxembourg’s Viviane Reding (born on 27 April 1951 in Esch-sur-Alzette) is a key figure. After her studies, including a PhD in Human Science at Paris Sorbonne University, she worked as a journalist at the Luxemburger Wort for more than 20 years and chaired the Luxembourg Union of Journalists.

De quoi l’histoire du Web fait-elle l’histoire ?

De quoi l’histoire du Web fait-elle l’histoire ?

Si les historien-ne-s se sont d’abord intéressé-es à l’histoire d’Internet avant celle du World Wide Web, la recherche dédiée au Web s’est développée ces dernières années, en lien avec un intérêt croissant pour les usages et les cultures numériques. Les archives du Web ont également contribué à stimuler l’intérêt pour la Toile et cette intervention se propose de revenir sur ces jalons historiographiques récents et majeurs.

Radio-Feature "100 Jahre Ostbelgien": Folge 1 "2x50 Jahre Geschichte Ostbelgiens"

Radio-Feature "100 Jahre Ostbelgien": Folge 1 "2x50 Jahre Geschichte Ostbelgiens"

In einer achtteiligen Reihe setzen sich die beiden Historiker Christoph Brüll und Andreas Fickers im BRF mit "100 Jahre Ostbelgien" auseinander. Zum Auftakt ihrer Serie würdigen sie die Pionierleistung der früheren BHF-Journalisten Peter Thomas und Hubert Jenniges. Sie hatten zu Beginn der 1970er Jahre die Sendereihe "50 Jahre Geschichte der Ostkantone" erstellt. Fickers und Brüll nennen ihre erste Episode denn auch "Zweimal 50 Jahre Ostbelgien".

Punched Cards in Accounting at Helena Rubinstein

Punched Cards in Accounting at Helena Rubinstein

Placing the design and use of computing devices into a broader context, I focus on the societal, business, and labour developments at the basis of new computer models. One of five carefully selected case studies considers the use of Powers-Samas and later I.C.T. punched card equipment in accounting at the Helena Rubinstein make-up concern in London during the 1950s. For each case my research looks into changes in occupations after the introduction of new computer models, as well as its influence on the work space and workflow of employees.

Czechoslovak Jewish emigrants in the clutches of Luxembourg pre-war migration bureaucracy

Czechoslovak Jewish emigrants in the clutches of Luxembourg pre-war migration bureaucracy

My contribution attempts to find answers to the following questions, among others: How did Luxembourg officials deal with Jewish refugees from Eastern European countries? Did the Luxembourgish authorities distinguish or give priority to citizens of particular nations? Who was involved in the approval process? Who played the most active role and collected the most controversial information about Jewish immigrants?
