Luxembourg – navigating the transition to the knowledge economy. A historical perspective

Luxembourg is a multicultural, multilingual and cross-border area par excellence that has always sought to maintain an openness to its neighbours, both for reasons of security and to give itself access to larger markets.

3rd Corvus Applied History Workshop : Practices of Applied History: Questions, Answers, Discussions

3rd Corvus Applied History Workshop : Practices of Applied History: Questions, Answers, Discussions

Situated at the axis of societal issues and academic research, the renewed popularity
of applied history has raised several questions about its practice. The most direct
questions come from non-academic partners. What can one expect of applied
historians? How will those expectat ions be met? What if the methods and tools of
applied history fall short of their goal? And is it even that important that organizations
learn to think about the past , when they are oriented towards the present and future?

Maxim Kantor: Kunst über Migration, Russland und Krieg

Maxim Kantor: Kunst über Migration, Russland und Krieg

"Man hofft nur auf die Stärke des europäischen Kulturbodens, gemeint sind Christentum, Universitäten, Rabelais, Dante usw., auf dem die neue Mischung der Europäer geschmolzen wird.
Das Europa, auf das wir alle stolz sind, ist nur im Rahmen des Humanismus, der auf den Kathedralen und Universitäten gewachsen ist, etwas wert.
Wenn es nur ein finanzpolitisches Projekt ist, dann muss es nicht gerettet werden, denn es wird so oder so verrotten." Max Kantor, 2016

Teaching Public and Applied History on Both Sides of the Atlantic

Teaching Public and Applied History on Both Sides of the Atlantic

n times of global crises, people turn to history to understand their own and their society’s situation. This is an issue addressed by those active in the field of public history. In this roundtable, teachers share their experiences with academic courses training students on both sides of the Atlantic in taking stock of public and applied history. First, students investigate how specific audiences have dealt with historic events, periods, or developments considered to be collective or cultural traumas.

Scanning the Past: A 3D Model of Trausch's Library

Today, modern geospatial technologies and methods are widely used in combination with the documentation and preservation of objects of importance to cultural heritage. In this setting, archeologists and historians alike benefit from the rapid technological developments over the past decades, which have resulted in instrumentation that allows the capture of real objects and the generation of accurate and precise three-dimensional (3D) digital representations, i.e. models, from these sensed data.

Keep calm and carry on. Historicizing online virality

The purpose of our Hivi research project (https://hivi.uni.lu) is to historicise and to contextualise online virality through the different ages of the Web. This allows to grasp the evolution of digital cultures, as well as the changes of platforms, audience, formats, and the cross-platform, transnational and transmedia circulations of Internet phenomena (memes, online challenges, etc.). There are also continuities of practices to be retrieved, such as trolling, participation and remix.

Dangerous Words and Dangerous Silences: Positioning Europe at the Edge of War

Dangerous Words and Dangerous Silences: Positioning Europe at the Edge of War

Wars never happen ‘just like that’ or ‘out of the blue’. They are
the culmination of complex processes that span years and
sometimes even decades. In his art, Maxim Kantor has
addressed the threat embodied by the apparently seamless
transition from Soviet Union to the Russian Federation
and guided democracy, and his position has always been
unmistakeable: Vladimir Putin and the system that
produced him are, and always were, dangerous.
Now more than ever, choosing the right words matters,
