X25, une norme pour le transport de données

X25, une norme pour le transport de données

L’avis X25, adopté en 1976 par le Comité consultatif international téléphonique et télégraphique (CCITT) dans le domaine des réseaux de données permet d’explorer des enjeux nationaux et internationaux de normalisation. Son histoire témoigne de la convergence entre télécommunications et informatique dans les années 1970, des débats liés au développement des réseaux de données, en particulier autour de la commutation de paquets, mais aussi de choix techniques, industriels et politiques complexes, et ce à plusieurs échelles.

Romania and Luxembourg – Connecting Memory, Sharing History

Romania and Luxembourg – Connecting Memory, Sharing History

In spite of their fondamental geopolitical differences and their contrasting trajectories through the history, modern-day Romania and Luxembourg have always enjoyed a unique relationship, which started in the 12th century, when a number of Siebenbürger Sachsen could migrate eastwards (in Transylvania).

Luxembourg Diplomacy at Work

Luxembourg Diplomacy at Work

After the Second World War, Luxembourg became a leading player in international relations. As a founding member of most of the major international institutions – including the United Nations (1945), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisa-tion (1949), the Council of Europe (1949), the European Communities (starting with the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951) and then the European Union (1993) –, Luxembourg assumed a key role in European integration and multilateralism.

Studying transnational events through web archives

This short presentation was a mid-term feedback on the collective work of WG2 that I lead within the WARCnet project. I especially underlined the research we conducted through an internal datathon we organised in January 2021 and which used seed lists, derived data and metadata.

Quand l’Europe emménageait au Luxembourg

Quand l’Europe emménageait au Luxembourg

Lorsque le 9 mai 1950, le ministre français des Affaires étrangères (natif du Luxembourg) Robert Schuman (1886-1963) énonce ce que l’Histoire retiendra comme la « Déclaration Schuman » et propose la création d’une Communauté européenne du charbon et de l'acier (CECA) réunissant les ennemies héréditaires d’antan - la France et l’Allemagne - personne n’imaginait que cette initiative censée forger une paix durable en Europe allait se concrétiser en moins d’un an.

Perspectives from the French-Luxembourgish and the Belgian-German Borders

Perspectives from the French-Luxembourgish and the Belgian-German Borders

When six European nations embarked on the integration process in the wake of World War II, there was no blueprint. Of course, the founders had a vision and shared ideals, but European integration has left some citizens afraid of losing their identity and cultural heritage and an influx of immigrants has fuelled these fears. Building on this topic, this panel brings together researchers who focus on different aspects of what happens to history and heritage in multicultural European societies and particularly those in the border regions over time.

Special Issue by Dr. Inna Ganschow on Polish Immigration. Polish Luxembourg 1900-1920: A glimpse of the iceberg tip.

The history of Poles in Luxembourg after the re-establishment of the new Polish state in 1918 can be traced on the basis of statistics from various sources. The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs kept statistics that provide a picture of Polish labour migration between two world wars. Luxembourg historians have also tackled the question of the image of the Polish diaspora before its members started to assimilate.
