Arpanet (1969-2019)

ARPANET’s story is part of the Internet’s official heritage, as a first crucial step in its development. Janet Abbate’s seminal work Inventing the Internet (1999) has extensively covered its history and is still a landmark in this area. However, the 50th anniversary of ARPANET provides an opportunity to reflect on existing histories and to open up the debate to new perspectives and approaches. If we consider ARPANET as a first step towards the Internet, how did it determine – and how does it continue to determine – our current understanding of the Internet?

David Seymour’s Album on the Fight Against Illiteracy in Calabria as a Tool of Mediatization: Material Traces of Editing and Visual Storytelling

David Seymour’s Album on the Fight Against Illiteracy in Calabria as a Tool of Mediatization: Material Traces of Editing and Visual Storytelling

The analysis of UNESCO’s audio-visual archives for their digitization has brought to light a forgotten album of 38 contact sheets and accompanying texts by Magnum photographer, David “Chim” Seymour – a reportage made in 1950 for UNESCO on the fight against illiteracy in Italy’s southern region of Calabria. A number of his photographs appeared in the March 1952 issue of UNESCO Courier in an article written by Carlo Levi, who had gained worldwide fame with his novel Christ Stopped at Eboli (1945).

Eupen-Malmedy im europäischen Vergleich. Minderheiten als Problem der europäischen Politik in der Zwischenkriegszeit

Eupen-Malmedy im europäischen Vergleich. Minderheiten als Problem der europäischen Politik in der Zwischenkriegszeit

Im 19. Jahrhundert wurden die Grenzen zwischen den unterschiedlichen Sprachen und Kulturen immer schärfer gezogen. Der Nationalismus entfaltete seine Kraft. Durch die Schaffung zahlreicher neuer Staaten in Osteuropa und neuer Minderheiten in Westeuropa entstanden für die Innen- und Außenpolitik der europäischen Staaten neue Spannungen. Ein Vergleich zwischen ausgewählten europäischen Minderheiten eröffnet neue Sichtweisen auf die Regionalgeschichte und relativiert scheinbare Gewissheiten.

What’s in a Name: Gamifying the Intangible History of Larochette, Luxembourg

What’s in a Name: Gamifying the Intangible History of Larochette, Luxembourg

The Larochette app is part of a larger interdisciplinary project to create a digital reconstruction of the town and castle of Larochette, Luxembourg. The paper discusses the creation of an app that serves to pique interest in linguistics and historical geography, traditionally dry subjects with little intrinsic appeal to children and the general public. This project harnesses this effect, presenting the results of the preceding landscape study in an interactive educational environment that rewards the user for engaging with the content.

Negotiating the past, present, and future: The Luxembourgish Jewish Museum Project as a Process of Contested memory and imagined futures

There is currently a project underway to establish a Jewish museum in Luxembourg in a restored synagogue just outside the main city center. As this project unfolds, it provides a clear view into the contestations and negotiations over meaning, representation, Jewishness, and the past, present, and future visions of community that arise in the development of a museum.

Digital Resources and Tools in Historical Research

Digital Resources and Tools in Historical Research

One of the characteristic features of modern life is the omnipresence of images - in public life as well as in the private surroundings. At latest with coining the term "Visual history" at the beginning of the nineteen nineties historical disciplines are dealing with this ever growing pool of pictorial sources. This is also true for educational history - especially when keeping in mind that the use of images in an educational context is common practice since early modern ages.

L'euro en quête d'un nouveau souffle

L'euro en quête d'un nouveau souffle

L’euro est l’une des grandes aventures du XXe siècle. Pour la première fois des pays égaux et souverains consentent d’abandonner leurs monnaies nationales - symbole intrinsèque aux États nations - pour créer une monnaie unique gérée par une nouvelle institution, une banque centrale à l’échelon de l’Europe. Si l’euro ressemble davantage à un instrument technique pour une meilleure intégration économique, il représente surtout une construction institutionnelle originale et une forte avancée politique, néanmoins incomplète.
