Les héritages des débuts d’Internet et du Web

Les héritages des débuts d’Internet et du Web

Alors que l’an dernier étaient célébrés les 50 ans du réseau ARPANET et les 30 ans du World Wide Web, ces anniversaires étaient l’occasion de revenir largement sur les fondements du « réseau des réseaux ». Ce retour aux sources permettait de prendre la mesure des changements intervenus, mais aussi de continuités certaines, ainsi que de valeurs séminales qui sont régulièrement convoquées dans les débats contemporains.

Crunch time for EMU

Crunch time for EMU

As we mark the 50th anniversary of the Werner Report, it is well worth analysing the role of Economic and Monetary Union at a time of uncertainty as to the wider European project, via an interdisciplinary approach that draws on historical and archive research and takes into consideration the theoretical debates in the literature and the various methodological challenges.What are the multifaceted future provocation facing Economic and Monetary Union? What steps still need to be taken to complete the project?

Epistemic communities in building EMU: Pierre Werner, Robert Triffin and Jean Monnet in European monetary cooperation.

Epistemic communities in building EMU: Pierre Werner, Robert Triffin and Jean Monnet in European monetary cooperation.

On 8 October 1970 in Luxembourg, Pierre Werner officially presented the plan by stages for an economic and monetary union (EMU) in the European Community. This document was the result of seven months of discussions by a group of experts from the six Member States, chaired by the Luxembourg Prime Minister and Finance Minister. The Werner Report set out the broad lines, principles and stages of an EMU based on the principle of irreversibility and an approach rooted in perfect symmetry between the economic and monetary aspects, with political union as the ultimate objective.

Staging the Nation in an Intermediate Space: Cultural Policy in Luxembourg and the State Museums (1918-1974)

Staging the Nation in an Intermediate Space: Cultural Policy in Luxembourg and the State Museums (1918-1974)

Cultural policy has been analysed from various perspectives, ranging from sociology over cultural studies to political science. Historians have also been interested in cultural policy, but they have barely reflected on a theoretical framework. In addition, cultural policy has not been thoroughly researched in Luxembourg. The present thesis aims to contribute to this gap and examines how national cultural policy in Luxembourg evolved from the 1920s to the early 1970s.

"Vouloir, connaître, agir"

"Vouloir, connaître, agir"

Au sein de l’Union européenne, le Luxembourg est le pays qui peut se targuer de la plus longue expérience d’intégration économique et politique – 170 ans. Au sortir de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, l’implication active du Grand-Duché dans ce processus fut le fruit d’un choix délibéré, motivé par sa situation géopolitique et économique, par sa nature de petit État et par une conviction profonde.

Keynote lecture: The Hybrid Historian - Historical Research in the Digital Age

In the past decade, we have witnessed a shift from technological determinism to more attention to the methodological and epistemological changes in historical research which the digital turn has brought about. This talk will focus on how the practice of doing history has changed in the digital age against the background of broader historical developments in the so-called digital humanities.

Régions transfrontalières en Europe: quelle est la place du Luxembourg?

Régions transfrontalières en Europe: quelle est la place du Luxembourg?

La coopération transfrontalière en Europe émerge dans les années 1960, dans le cadre de jumelages entre municipalités et sur la toile de fond marqué par la construction de la Communauté économique européenne (CEE). Elle se développera sous l’impulsion du Conseil de l’Europe – qui promouvra les relations de bon voisinage entre les autorités locales des États concernés, et de la CEE – qui mettra en place un système d’accords de coopération transfrontalière entre les pays communautaires, ainsi qu’avec les pays voisins.
