Régions transfrontalières en Europe: quelle est la place du Luxembourg?

Régions transfrontalières en Europe: quelle est la place du Luxembourg?

La coopération transfrontalière en Europe émerge dans les années 1960, dans le cadre de jumelages entre municipalités et sur la toile de fond marqué par la construction de la Communauté économique européenne (CEE). Elle se développera sous l’impulsion du Conseil de l’Europe – qui promouvra les relations de bon voisinage entre les autorités locales des États concernés, et de la CEE – qui mettra en place un système d’accords de coopération transfrontalière entre les pays communautaires, ainsi qu’avec les pays voisins.

Book presentation: Geschichte einer atomisierten Diaspora

Book presentation: Geschichte einer atomisierten Diaspora

The First World War led to the collapse of the great multiethnic European empires. In Russia, the monarchy is swept away and replaced by the soviet regime. Until 1923, the country was torn apart by a multi-faceted civil war. Moreover, in response to the national awakening of ethnic minorities encompassed in the former Russian space, young national states (Poland, Baltic States, Georgia ...) are being established on the edges of the former empire of the tsars.

Russians in Luxembourg: Русская диаспора Люксембурга в первой четверти 20в. в письмах и мемуарах

Russians in Luxembourg: Русская диаспора Люксембурга в первой четверти 20в. в письмах и мемуарах

in the center of the book are people, destinies, their ancestors and descendants, our contemporaries, albeit in the context of historical analysis. First, let us touch on a few examples that explain why the subtitle of the book mentions the atomisation of the diaspora, i.e. fragmentation of the Russian community. The second part of the report is devoted to reading several excerpts from the letters of Russians from Luxembourg, in order to give an opportunity not only to look at their photographs, but also to hear their voices.

DEMA demonstration: Kinora Viewer Replica

A hands-on demonstration of the Kinora Viewer Replica. This public online event shows the fruits of a recent successful collaboration between the C2DH and the Department of Engineering. Combining historical inquiry with a hands-on and technical approach – involving the latest 3D modelling and desktop manufacturing engineering techniques – a media historian and two engineers joined forces to produce a working replica of a very special object in the history of (early) cinema: the Kinora viewer.

Borderland Child Heterotopias. A Case Study on the Belgian-German Borderlands

Borderland Child Heterotopias. A Case Study on the Belgian-German Borderlands

This article investigates the capacities of children to participate actively in their lives in the Belgian-German borderlands in the time period between World War I and World War II. The article interprets a body of historical sources that has hitherto been left unexplored – namely, borderland child ego documents – with the help of insights from child studies and border studies. These ego documents unfold as borderland child heterotopias.

Fading Away... The challenge of sustainability in digital studies

Fading Away... The challenge of sustainability in digital studies

This paper emphasizes the need to think about sustainability as a key element of digital studies and digital hermeneutics. It addresses the inherent tensions between the long-term needs of data preservation and maintenance on the one side, and the short life cycles of the data formats, platforms and infrastructures on the other side. Challenges are not limited to the technical maintenance of software, tools and data, but also apply to the wider institutional contexts, epistemic traditions and social practices in which the doing of research in social sciences and humanities are embedded.

Radio Feature "100 Jahre Ostbelgien" Folge 8: Von Geschichtspolitik und Erinnerungskulturen

Bis heute beherrscht die Meistererzählung der Ostbelgier als "Opfer" und "Spielball der Geschichte" den öffentlichen Diskurs, wenn es um die Bedeutung der Vergangenheit geht. In der achten und letzten Folge von "100 Jahre Ostbelgien" zeigen die Historiker Andreas Fickers und Christoph Brüll, dass sich in der Auseinandersetzung mit dieser Vergangenheit tiefsitzende Ängste und Sorgen spiegeln. Mentalitätshistorisch gesehen können sie als eine Abfolge von Angstregimen gedeutet werden.

Une crise révélatrice. (Pandémie du Covid-19 : Quel rôle pour l’Union européenne ?)

La pandémie du Covid-19 dont l’Europe a un temps été l’épicentre, a entrainé de lourdes conséquences pour la santé et la vie quotidienne des citoyens. Les 27 membres de l’UE ont pris de mesures nationales exceptionnelles (état d'urgence, confinement, limitation de l'activité économique et des déplacements, fermeture des frontières) en agissant en ordre dispersé. L’Union a été épinglée pour son manque de répondant .Mais quelles sont ses prérogatives en matière sanitaire? Qu’est-ce que l’UE peut faire – et ne peut pas faire – lorsqu’elle est confrontée à une crise de cette magnitude?
