Die Peripherie im Zentrum. Schule und Grenze im Europa der Zwischenkriegszeit

Die Peripherie im Zentrum. Schule und Grenze im Europa der Zwischenkriegszeit

Nach dem Versailler Vertrag sahen sich die europäischen Nationalstaaten mit der Herausforderung konfrontiert, in ihren neuen Grenzgebieten, in denen sich die Mitbürger und Mitbürgerinnen oft drastisch in religiösen, sprachlichen, kulturellen oder ethnischen Aspekten unterschieden, nationale Loyalität zu vermitteln. Die Peripherie im Zentrum vergleicht die Erfahrungen des Schulwesens in Oberschlesien in Polen und in Eupen, Sankt Vith und Malmedy in Belgien - Grenzregionen, die nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg vom Deutschen Reich abgetrennt wurden.

Traces et mémoires en devenir d’une pandémie (Italie et France)

Traces et mémoires en devenir d’une pandémie (Italie et France)

Texte de prospective, cet article tente d’émettre des hypothèses sur une mémoire collective en devenir, celle des confinements français et italien du printemps 2020. En s’insérant dans le cadre des digital memory studies, les auteurs utilisent deux corpus comparables, l’un italophone et l’autre francophone, constitués de tweets contenant #coronavirus. Au travers d’une lecture distante des deux corpus, ils analysent les grands thèmes qui les traversent, afin de comparer les résultats obtenus et en comprendre les différences.

Media persistence: Theories, approaches, categorization

Media persistence: Theories, approaches, categorization

Despite the fact that new media are continually seen as “natural born killers” of old media, old media rarely die and very often persist. In what is alternately called the “age of the Internet,” the “digital revolution,” the “metaverse,” the era of “artificial intelligence,” old media such as books, cinema, radio, television, analogue photography, and several others are still in use. Moreover, there is a kind of re-emergence of “the analogue” in various forms and for different incentives, including nostalgia.

Perceiving deindustrialisation in Luxembourg and East Germany. Industrial decline within the ARBED company in transnational perspective

Perceiving deindustrialisation in Luxembourg and East Germany. Industrial decline within the ARBED company in transnational perspective

When the Luxembourg steel company ARBED acquired the Maxhütte Unterwellenborn steelworks in Thuringia in 1992, it became involved in a far-reaching process of industrial decline that had its roots in the disintegration of the Eastern Bloc in 1989. 15 years earlier, ARBED itself had gone through a similar process of decline in Luxembourg, triggered by the economic crisis of 1974.

Ostbelgische Katharsis? Die Herrmann-Niermann-Affäre als Medienevent

Im Sommer des Jahres 1987 ereignet sich eines der spektakulärsten Medienereignisse in der jüngeren Zeitgeschichte Ostbelgiens. Der überraschende Rücktritt von Lorenz Paasch als Sankt Vither Schöffe und sein beruflicher Wechsel als Geschäftsführer der in Düsseldorf angesiedelten Hermann-Niermann- Stiftung inspiriert BRF-Journalist Freddy Derwahl zu einer folgenschweren Spekulation über eine angebliche Nachbarschaft der Stiftung zu rechtsradikalen Kreisen. Die „Niermann-Affäre“
