Interview with Dr. Inna Ganschow (C2DH, Uni of Lux)

Throughout her academic projects, Dr Ganschow is working on the presence of the so-called Russian diaspora in Luxembourg, i.e. the emigrant population from former Soviet Republics. Her current project deals with Soviet forced labourers during the Second World War and is commissioned by the Luxembourg government. In her work, she decided to compare the situation of these forced labourers, mainly young women coming from Ukraine, with the local population, in the Belval region in the south of Luxembourg.

Zum vermeintlichen Verschwinden des Reparierens in Luxemburg, 1956–1987

Zum vermeintlichen Verschwinden des Reparierens in Luxemburg, 1956–1987

Die Geschichte des Reparierens wird meist als Niedergangsgeschichte erzählt: Das sich wandelnde Verhältnis zwischen Anschaffungs- und Reparaturkosten von Konsumgütern hätte dazu geführt, dass immer weniger repariert wurde und private Konsumenten stattdessen direkt neue Geräte angeschafft hätten. Als Wendepunkt hin zur sogenannten Wegwerfgesellschaft werden für Westeuropa die 1970er und 1980er Jahre genannt. Am Beispiel Luxemburgs soll der Wan- del des Reparaturfeldes für diesen Zeitraum näher untersucht werden.

Entre inquiétudes des minorités et peurs d'une désintégration. Représentations de l'avenir de la Belgique au sein des débats sur l'autonomie des Belges germanophones depuis les années 1980

Entre inquiétudes des minorités et peurs d'une désintégration. Représentations de l'avenir de la Belgique au sein des débats sur l'autonomie des Belges germanophones depuis les années 1980

The conceptions of Belgium that lie behind the demands of German-speaking Belgians for the expansion of their autonomy have not yet come into the focus of historical and political science research. What future do they associate with the Belgian state when they claim a community-region or a ‘Belgium of four’? This article attempts to approach this question by analysing four regimes of fear that determine East Belgian discourses: Fear of the past, fear of minorities, fear of being overwhelmed and fear of disintegration.

1870 ou l’invention de l’Alsace contemporaine. Généalogie d’un territoire singulier

1870 ou l’invention de l’Alsace contemporaine. Généalogie d’un territoire singulier

Cert article retrace la « généalogie des lieux » de l’Alsace contemporaine, dans laquelle la cartographie a joué un rôle essentiel, et s’efforce de restituer les conséquences démographiques qui la bouleversèrent durablement. Il revient ainsi sur les opérations de démarcation de l’Alsace au début des années 1870, et sur l’option de nationalité offerte à ses habitants, qui est à l’origine de la plus grande émigration de l’histoire de la région aux XIXe et XXe siècles.

Entangled Media Ecologies: The Nexus of Education and Mass Communication from the Perspective of UNESCO (1945-1989)

Entangled Media Ecologies: The Nexus of Education and Mass Communication from the Perspective of UNESCO (1945-1989)

Numerous studies and handbooks in the history of education are devoted to the history of educational media and the evolution of educational technologies. This chapter puts an explicit focus on the implications and conceptual background of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization´s (UNESCO) technology-driven idea of education, which already took shape before the 1957 Sputnik shock.

Shifting the historical narrative of the Banda Islands From colonial violence to local resilience

Shifting the historical narrative of the Banda Islands From colonial violence to local resilience

History is a representation of the past based on (written) knowledge which has been passed on from one generation to the next, with a preference given to written sources from a Eurocentric tradition. However, written sources about (former) colonial territories are a product of the colonial system in which they were produced. Acknowledging the biases in these archives, therefore, opens the way for acceptance of other forms of knowledge which were previously deemed "not objective"in Eurocentric historical disciplines.

A history of psychiatry from below: the challenge of the archives

A history of psychiatry from below: the challenge of the archives

Until the 1970s, mentally ill patients were largely absent from the history of psychiatry. The field was dominated by triumphant narratives from doctors and critical perspectives from anti-psychiatrists. However, from the 1980s onwards, new historiographical approaches emerged to construct a history of psychiatry from the patient's viewpoint. A new generation of historians, led by British historian Roy

The Future of History in the Digital Age

The Future of History in the Digital Age

We have entered the “age of abundance”: a huge number of historical sources – books, documents, pamphlets and media of all sorts – have by now been digitised, and the amount of digital-born material is growing at an even faster pace. This boom is paired with new forms of access: in principle, digital sources that are made available online can be studied from anywhere in the world, and powerful digital tools allow us to study the big data of the past in a new fashion.

Panne unterwegs! Die Entwicklung des Kfz-Reparaturgewerbes von den Anfängen bis in die 1970er Jahre

Bei der Einführung des Automobils im späten 19. Jahrhundert war die Technik zunächst sehr unzuverlässig und reparaturbedürftig, gleichzeitig gab es nur wenige spezialisierte Kfz-Werkstätten. Erst in der Zwischenkriegszeit entstand in Deutschland allmählich eine eigenständige Reparaturinfrastruktur mit gewerblichen Werkstätten, Tankstellen und Pannenhilfsdiensten.

La BGL, l'architecture d'un siège dans une ville en mutation

La BGL, l'architecture d'un siège dans une ville en mutation

The Banque Générale du Luxembourg (BGL), established in 1919, is one of Luxembourg’s iconic financial institutions. Drawing on the bank’s private archives, this article explores the many architectural changes made to the BGL headquarters over the years, ranging from extensions and renovations to new building projects. Throughout the bank’s history – and especially from its establishment until the late 1980s –, the buildings that housed its head office in the centre of Luxembourg City went through multiple transformations.
