Underground Histories: Border Transgression and Subversion in the Minette (1919-1939)

Underground Histories: Border Transgression and Subversion in the Minette (1919-1939)

The history of the French-Luxembourgish border has been marked by the rapid growth of the iron and steel industry and the massive influx of immigrants coming to work in this cross-border industrial region. Employing a microhistorical lens and a relational approach, this doctoral research explores how border regimes were transgressed by everyday smuggling or subverted by Italian communist networks in the interwar years.

Hans THUNA (1895-?), Else HERZOG (1891-1944), Erich THUNA (1924-2012), Erika THUNA (1924-2013)

Hans THUNA (1895-?), Else HERZOG (1891-1944), Erich THUNA (1924-2012), Erika THUNA (1924-2013)

Originally from Vienna, Austria, the Thuna family escaped to Luxembourg following the Anschluss of Austria to the German Reich in 1938. During their two-year stay in Luxembourg, they were supported by the Jewish ESRA Committee and resided in the Hotel Select. Despite efforts to obtain entry visas for countries in South America, they remained in Luxembourg until the invasion of German troops in May 1940, from where they embarked on a disrupted transport to Lisbon in November 1940, which eventually took them to France. In 1942, Hans Thuna was deported to Auschwitz via Drancy.

Que faire des « indésirables » ? Étude comparative de la dépossession des familles considérées comme juives et des familles déplacées de force au Luxembourg (1940-1944)

Que faire des « indésirables » ? Étude comparative de la dépossession des familles considérées comme juives et des familles déplacées de force au Luxembourg (1940-1944)

This article centres on a comparison of the persecution and dispossession of Jews and forcibly resettled Luxembourgish families, referred to as Abgesiedelte, during the Second World War in Luxembourg. It investigates how the German occupation authorities used the confiscation of property from these groups to foster a sense of allegiance to the German “people’s community” (Volksgemeinschaft) within the territory.

Étude comparée de l’organisation des services postaux dans le sillon de Sambre et Meuse en 1789 et 1801. Approche géographique et historique de deux documents cartographiques

Étude comparée de l’organisation des services postaux dans le sillon de Sambre et Meuse en 1789 et 1801. Approche géographique et historique de deux documents cartographiques

La période d’occupation française des territoires qui composent l’actuelle Belgique est souvent associée à un bref intermède entre le régime autrichien et le régime hollandais, débouchant sur l’Indépendance belge de 1830. Pourtant, durant la courte période allant de 1795 à 1815 s’est déroulé le plus grand et le plus radical chamboulement de l’histoire de ces régions. Chamboulement culturel, économique, et, non des moindres, administratif. À ce niveau, le nouveau découpage du territoire est sans doute l’élément le plus flagrant.

Six Memos for the New Millennium : A Dialogue with Andreas Fickers on Epistemic Virtues in the Digital Humanities

Six Memos for the New Millennium : A Dialogue with Andreas Fickers on Epistemic Virtues in the Digital Humanities

Taking Italo Calvino’s Six Memos for the Next Millennium as a starting point for a conversation about the epistemic virtues in the Digital Humanities, Andreas Fickers and Annie van den Oever discuss a rejection of the normative tradition of honing an ideal-typical definition of what makes “good science” in favor of an exploration in the phenomenological descriptive tradition of epistemic norms (values) as internalized by scientists. They reflect on the six epistemic virtues that could be instrumental in prompting

Introduction

Introduction

This chapter outlines the conceptual framework of the book and the variety of viewpoints related to the use of the notion of scale and zooming in digital history and humanities. The contributions included in the volume encompass different degrees of theoretical assumptions, practical insights and middle-ground reflections, symbolically expressed through the three conceptual levels: bird’s-eye view, overhead view and ground view.
