Humanitarian Photography Beyond the Picture: David “CHIM” Seymour’s Children of Europe

Humanitarian Photography Beyond the Picture: David “CHIM” Seymour’s Children of Europe

This book chapter concentrates on photography as a technology that goes beyond the image. The chapter looks at documentary photography as an institutional and material practice of humanitarian ‘propaganda’ and discusses how notions of childhood intensified the urgency of humanitarian campaigns. It analyzes how UNESCO carefully selected and edited David Seymour’s photographs of children of war-devasted Europe, and how the organization adapted and exploited his photographs for its own ends.

Jeopardizing Democracy throughout History

Jeopardizing Democracy throughout History

It is the goal of this issue of Medien & Zeit to provide a glimpse on the long history of how media in their many different forms and variations, served as either and amplifier or even accomplice (for reasons of profit, influence, power or ideology), or in the contrary acted as an adversary to populist and radical politics. The goal of this issue hence is to contribute to an understanding of the role media played as potential accomplices or carriers of populist agitation (e.g.

History in the Era of Massive Data

History in the Era of Massive Data

Abstract This article draws on the experience of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH) research project, ``\#ww1 the centenary of the Great War on Twitter,'' to contemplate what it means to use born-digital and big data primary sources, both as a methodology and as a contribution to the field of memory studies and contemporary history more broadly. It discusses the notion of distant reading in order to show the interest of multiscale reading in the framework of big data.

PROJECT WARLUX Ambiguities in biographies of Luxembourgish conscripts during and after WWII

PROJECT WARLUX Ambiguities in biographies of Luxembourgish conscripts during and after WWII

More than 10,000 Luxembourgish soldiers and recruits and an unknown number of Luxembourgish men and women wore German uniforms during WWII in armed forces and civil organisations, such as the Wehrmacht, Waffen-SS, armed police forces and the Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD). The "WARLUX" project, based at the University of Luxembourg in the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH), intends to collect the biographical data of Luxembourgers who were drafted into the German Army and the Labour Service.

Performing a historical re-enactment: the making of a 16mm home movie

Performing a historical re-enactment: the making of a 16mm home movie

In this presentation, I will “perform” the making of a 16mm home movie based on my media archaeological experiments with an original Ciné-Kodak film camera from 1930. A split screen montage shows the recorded analogue film fragments besides footage that illustrates the process of making the film captured by my documentation equipment, including a digital video camera, GoPro and 360 degree camera.

Understanding through Experimentation: An Experimental Media Archaeological Approach to Early Twentieth-Century Home Movie Making

Understanding through Experimentation: An Experimental Media Archaeological Approach to Early Twentieth-Century Home Movie Making

This presentation addresses the question in what ways visual media have contributed to the construction of a specific view on twentieth-century century (family) life by means of an experimental media archaeological approach to early home movie making. Based on hands-on experiments with an original Ciné-Kodak 16mm film camera from 1930, it will be shown how filming one’s family was never truly a neutral practice of capturing everyday life.
