Intellectual and Material Practices of an Historian in the 20th Century: The Case of Gilbert Trausch

20 October 2021

Research seminar with Renée Wagener and Wolfgang Freund.



The historian Gilbert Trausch stands in the focus of this research project that aims to bring together historiography on Luxembourg and Europe as well as intellectual and material practices of historians of the 20th century. As joint venture between the C²DH and the Historical Institute of the University of Luxembourg, the project will explore Trausch’s works and his working methods as well as his library, which was his main working place. One of the objectives of the project will be to inventory and reconstruct the library in a virtual space. Other aspects we will explore are the role, the habitus and the networks of Trausch as a scholar working on national and European history.
