Images of Industrial Life and Vocational Training: Scouting as a Liminal Space for Educating a Workers’ Elite in 1920s Luxembourg

Images of Industrial Life and Vocational Training: Scouting as a Liminal Space for Educating a Workers’ Elite in 1920s Luxembourg

This paper looks at a specific set of corporate images, namely photographs of apprentices of the Luxembourg steel conglomerate ARBED, and analyzes how young workers are depicted in these images. The paper draws on a collection of 2,251 glass plate negatives (re)presenting ARBED’s industrial cosmos, including its vocational school the Institut Emile Metz. The roughly 160 images of apprentices contained in the collection put on display the apprentices’ bodies and a variety of activities in different contexts.

Back to the roots of ARPANET and Internet history with Alexandre Serres

Back to the roots of ARPANET and Internet history with Alexandre Serres

Alexandre Serres’ PhD, “Aux sources d’Internet: l’!emergence d’ARPANET” (“The origins of the Internet: the Emergence of ARPANET”), defended in 2000, is quite influential in Francophone research literature and discourse on Internet histories. However, yet untranslated, it has remained little known in Anglophone scholarly circles.

Ein Experiment kollektiver Gewissensprüfung. Situativer Opportunismus und kumulative Heroisierung

Ein Experiment kollektiver Gewissensprüfung. Situativer Opportunismus und kumulative Heroisierung

Geschichte wird anhand von Quellen unterschiedlicher Herkunft erzählt und interpretiert. Die Fragen der Historiker entwickeln sich auch auf Grundlage ihrer verinnerlichten familiären Erzählungen über erlebte Geschichte. Kann diese Perspektive und ihre Konfrontation mit der archivalischen Überlieferung neue Sichtweisen auf die Vergangenheit ermöglichen? Wie können Historiker das Konzept des situativen Opportunismus nutzen, um die Entscheidungen der Zeitgenossen zu verstehen? Ein Denkanstoß.

Shifting Epistemologies for Discipline and Rigour in Educational Research: Challenges and Opportunities from Digital Humanities

Shifting Epistemologies for Discipline and Rigour in Educational Research: Challenges and Opportunities from Digital Humanities

This paper historicizes “rigour”, discipline” and “systematic” as inventions of a certain rational spirit of Enlightenment that was radicalized during the 19th century. These terms acquired temporary value in a transition during the 19th century when a culture of research was established within a modern episteme. Beginning in the 20th century, this development was perceived as problematic, triggering criticism from philosophy and the arts, and even within the sciences.

A Memory-Based Label Propagation Algorithm for Community Detection

A Memory-Based Label Propagation Algorithm for Community Detection

The objective of a community detection algorithm is to group similar nodes in a network into communities, while increasing the dissimilarity between them. Several methods have been proposed but many of them are not suitable for large-scale networks because they have high complexity and use global knowledge. The Label Propagation Algorithm (LPA) assigns a unique label to every node and propagates the labels locally, while applying the majority rule to reach a consensus. Nodes which share the same label are then grouped into communities.

Grenzerfahrungen. Eine Geschichte der Deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft Belgiens. Vol. 4: Staatenwechsel, Identitätskonflikte, Kriegserfahrungen (1919-1945)

Grenzerfahrungen. Eine Geschichte der Deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft Belgiens. Vol. 4: Staatenwechsel, Identitätskonflikte, Kriegserfahrungen (1919-1945)

Krieg, Krisen und Umbrüche, aber auch Fortschrittsglaube, Hoffnungen und Kontinuitäten kennzeichnen Europa im Zeitalter der Weltkriege. In der deutsch-belgischen Grenzregion führen Grenzverschiebungen zu Orientierungslosigkeit, aber auch Beharrung. Eupen-Malmedy ist zu jener Zeit Randregion zwischen zwei Vaterländern, die in ihm keinen Zwischenraum erkennen wollen. Identitätskonflikte polarisieren und radikalisieren die politische Auseinandersetzung. Krieg wird erlebbar. Gleichzeitig verändern Massenmedien wie Zeitungen, Radio oder das Kino die Sicht der Menschen auf die Welt.

Le goût de l'archive à l'ère numérique

Le goût de l'archive à l'ère numérique

En 1989, Arlette Farge publie Le goût de l’archive. Elle y décrit ce que tout·e his­to­rien·ne a pu vivre : une rela­tion intime aux sour­ces pri­mai­res – que l’on s’appro­prie phy­si­que­ment et intel­lec­tuel­le­ment –, qui s’ins­crit dans un espace par­ti­cu­lier, la salle de lec­ture. Cette rela­tion intime condi­tionne pour partie l’inter­pré­ta­tion de nos sour­ces et le récit du passé que nous en tirons.

Du grand secret à la "défaite de l'Internet"

Les débats sur la neutralité de l’Internet et sur la surveillance des informations et communications en ligne placent actuellement au cœur des discussions « les intermédiaires » et leur rôle dans le filtrage, ou au contraire la priorisation, de certains contenus circulant au sein du réseau des réseaux. Les intermédiaires ont vu leur rôle mis en débat dès leur naissance dans les années 1990.

Audiovisual Data in Digital Humanities

Audiovisual Data in Digital Humanities

This issue of VIEW provides a critical survey of new digital humanities (DH) methods and tools directed toward audiovisual (AV) media. DH as a field is still dominated by a focus on textual studies (studies of word culture) that are largely “deaf and blind” in their capacity to search, discover, and study AV materials. The mandate to improve these capacities is clear and unquestioned, though the pathways are fecund and numerous.

Du local à l'international. Jalons pour une sociographie des dirigeants sportifs: Polignac, Kriegk, Daugé: trois trajectoires rémoises (années 1900-1960)

Du local à l'international. Jalons pour une sociographie des dirigeants sportifs: Polignac, Kriegk, Daugé: trois trajectoires rémoises (années 1900-1960)

This contribution aims to shed light on how serving on the boards of local sporting associations enables some leaders to access the elite of international sport. The case of three international leaders (Louis Daugé, Teddy Kriegk, and Melchior de Polignac) is observed through a sociography of the presidents of sports clubs in the city of Reims, the regional sports capital of Champagne-Ardenne, where they were prominent figures and local elites.
