Yes, we can! Mining Arguments in 50 Years of US Presidential Campaign Debates

Yes, we can! Mining Arguments in 50 Years of US Presidential Campaign Debates

Political debates offer a rare opportunity for citizens to compare the candidates’ positions on the most controversial topics of the campaign. Thus they represent a natural application scenario for Argument Mining. As existing research lacks solid empirical investigation of the typology of argument components in political debates, we fill this gap by proposing an Argument Mining approach to political debates.

Une histoire contemporaine du Luxembourg en 70 chroniques

Une histoire contemporaine du Luxembourg en 70 chroniques

"A contemporary history of Luxembourg in 70 chronicles" by Denis Scuto is a collection of 70 press chronicles, published from 2014 to 2019 in the Luxembourg newspaper Tageblatt. It is "public history" in the best sense of the word, because Denis Scuto as a professional historian intervenes directly in today's debates and enlightens them in a dazzling way by replacing them in the history of Luxembourg and Europe.

A small country in a global context: the case of Luxembourg’s cultural policy

A small country in a global context: the case of Luxembourg’s cultural policy

This paper focuses on a small nation state instead of a big country to provide a different perspective on cultural policy history. Due to its small size, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg has been influenced by the cultures of its neighbouring countries and looked beyond its national boundaries for inspirations. Members of the political, cultural and economic elite studied abroad and brought ideas and transnational contacts to Luxembourg. Hence, Luxembourg’s national cultural policy needs to be examined within the international context.
