impresso. Media Monitoring of the Past

impresso. Media Monitoring of the Past

In the impresso project, a team of computational linguists, historians and designers strive to enable data-driven analyses of historical media across time, institutional silos, media types and languages. To this end we compile a corpus of historical newspaper and radio collections with the help of Western European partners, enrich it using text mining techniques and develop user interfaces for their exploration and computational analysis.

From text to data to networks

From text to data to networks

Many network analysis projects rely on somewhat ready-made sources for data; for example, email logs, questionnaires, church registers, letter exchanges and trade relations make it relatively easy to identify who is connected to whom and how. It is, however, considerably more difficult to extract quantifiable data from text. Some issues to consider here are: how can we bridge the gap between the depth of hermeneutics and data analysis? How can we systematize text interpretation?

Commémorer les Guerres mondiales en 2023

Commémorer les Guerres mondiales en 2023

Le 8 mai dernier, Emmanuel Macron se tenait seul au bout d’une avenue vidée, de peur d’une possible casserolade. Cette image marquante nous rappelle à considérer les commémorations comme des enjeux politiques de premier ordre, renvoyant toujours à un état des relations entre État, pouvoir et citoyens, y compris dans ce que ce lien peut avoir de plus conflictuel. Il en ira des mêmes enjeux pour la commémoration, ce 11 novembre, des 105 ans de l’armistice de 1918.

Diving into Vernacular Digital Cultures

Diving into Vernacular Digital Cultures

This presentation aimed at reflecting on the history of vernacular digital cultures and their historical approach through web archives. It relied on the experience of the Hivi project (A history of Online Virality) and notably the historical study of memes we conducted. This led to envisioning some desirable futures in approaching vernacular digital cultures (issues of access, inclusiveness, role of visual and sound studies, readability of web archives ,etc.)

Between an Acknowledgment of Immigration and Neglect? Assessing Interculturalism and Media Integration in Luxembourg

Between an Acknowledgment of Immigration and Neglect? Assessing Interculturalism and Media Integration in Luxembourg

Luxembourg is a de facto multicultural country, with 179 different nationalities represented. It is, however, complex to identify who among the latter is perceived as an immigrant by public opinion. In the same vein, immigration stories rarely make the headlines of some of the most prominent outlets of Luxembourg’s mainstream media. This study covers the print content of some of Luxembourg’s dominant media outlets in the search for the representation of (im)migrants and refugees.

SO WIE HEUTE UND DOCH GANZ ANDERS:  DIE SCHUEBERFOUER VON 1945 BIS 1975

SO WIE HEUTE UND DOCH GANZ ANDERS: DIE SCHUEBERFOUER VON 1945 BIS 1975

Die Schueberfouer ist der größte Jahrmarkt in Luxemburg, der alljährlich gegen Ende des Sommers auf dem Glacis Feld in der Hauptstadt stattfindet. In Luxemburg haben zahlreiche Menschen persönliche Erinnerungen an Besuche und Erlebnisse auf diesem Jahrmarkt, und es wird vielfach über seine historische Bedeutung geschrieben, dessen Ursprünge bis ins Jahr 1340 zurückreichen.
