The Digital Archive and the Politics of Digitisation

Luxembourg Diplomacy at Work

Luxembourg Diplomacy at Work

After the Second World War, Luxembourg became a leading player in international relations. As a founding member of most of the major international institutions – including the United Nations (1945), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisa-tion (1949), the Council of Europe (1949), the European Communities (starting with the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951) and then the European Union (1993) –, Luxembourg assumed a key role in European integration and multilateralism.

Studying transnational events through web archives

This short presentation was a mid-term feedback on the collective work of WG2 that I lead within the WARCnet project. I especially underlined the research we conducted through an internal datathon we organised in January 2021 and which used seed lists, derived data and metadata.

Quand l’Europe emménageait au Luxembourg

Quand l’Europe emménageait au Luxembourg

Lorsque le 9 mai 1950, le ministre français des Affaires étrangères (natif du Luxembourg) Robert Schuman (1886-1963) énonce ce que l’Histoire retiendra comme la « Déclaration Schuman » et propose la création d’une Communauté européenne du charbon et de l'acier (CECA) réunissant les ennemies héréditaires d’antan - la France et l’Allemagne - personne n’imaginait que cette initiative censée forger une paix durable en Europe allait se concrétiser en moins d’un an.

Perspectives from the French-Luxembourgish and the Belgian-German Borders

Perspectives from the French-Luxembourgish and the Belgian-German Borders

When six European nations embarked on the integration process in the wake of World War II, there was no blueprint. Of course, the founders had a vision and shared ideals, but European integration has left some citizens afraid of losing their identity and cultural heritage and an influx of immigrants has fuelled these fears. Building on this topic, this panel brings together researchers who focus on different aspects of what happens to history and heritage in multicultural European societies and particularly those in the border regions over time.

Special Issue by Dr. Inna Ganschow on Polish Immigration. Polish Luxembourg 1900-1920: A glimpse of the iceberg tip.

The history of Poles in Luxembourg after the re-establishment of the new Polish state in 1918 can be traced on the basis of statistics from various sources. The Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs kept statistics that provide a picture of Polish labour migration between two world wars. Luxembourg historians have also tackled the question of the image of the Polish diaspora before its members started to assimilate.

Mapping wartime Jewish diaries and their postwar trajectories

Mapping wartime Jewish diaries and their postwar trajectories

If Auschwitz has become the key symbol of the Holocaust, then the fate of Anne Frank and her family has become symbolic of Jewish wartime experiences in Nazi-occupied Europe, and Anne’s diaries of Jewish diary writing. As such they are constitutive of people’s ideas about the Holocaust and the Jewish experience during World War II. Indeed, the Anne Frank diaries are intrinsic to the development of postwar Holocaust memory.

The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) Lessons from the past, future prospects

The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) was established on 25 July 1921. Some years later, in 1935, three additional sections were added to the BLEU Convention: on financial and monetary matters, a common trade regime and a “special revenue community” with specific excise duties. In 1963, the provisions of the BLEU were revised following the entry into force of the European Economic Community (EEC) and Benelux.
