The Minett as Palimpsest

The Minett as Palimpsest

The landscape in some parts of the Minett can be considered as a kind of palimpsest. For historians and archaeologists, a palimpsest is a writing medium, for example a parchment or a manuscript, that is used several times by erasing the previous writing. The landscape of the Minett has also changed greatly over the centuries as a result of human intervention. The soil can tell many overlapping and entangled stories. Some things have been completely erased, while other traces of past times have been left.

Digital Hermeneutics: The Reflexive Turn in Digital Public History?

Digital Hermeneutics: The Reflexive Turn in Digital Public History?

The digital – be it in forms of data, infrastructures, or tools – interferes atall levels in the practice of doing public history. This chapter argues that digitalpublic historians have to reflect more deeply on the epistemological consequencesof their digital practices. It proposes the concept of “digital hermeneutics” as a conceptual framework for this reflection. As a “hermeneutics of in-betweenness,” digital hermeneutics investigates the trading zone of digital public history where new digital methods and approaches meet disciplinary traditions and epistemic cultures of history.

La région Minett en tant que palimpseste

La région Minett en tant que palimpseste

Dans certaines parties du Minett, le paysage peut être considéré comme une sorte de palimpseste. Pour les historiens et les archéologues, un palimpseste est un support d’écriture, par exemple un parchemin, qui est utilisé plusieurs fois après effacement du texte précédent. Au fil des siècles, le paysage du Minett a en effet beaucoup changé au gré des interventions humaines. Le sol raconte de nombreuses histoires qui se chevauchent et s’entremêlent. Certains éléments ont été entièrement effacés, tandis que d’autres traces du passé subsistent.

From #MuseumAtHome to #AtHomeAtTheMuseum: Digital Museums and Dialogical Engagement beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic

From #MuseumAtHome to #AtHomeAtTheMuseum: Digital Museums and Dialogical Engagement beyond the COVID-19 Pandemic

The novel coronavirus spurred a keen interest in digital technologies for museums as both cultural professionals and the public took notice of their uses and limitations throughout the confinement period. In this study, we investigated the use of digital technologies by museums during a period when in-person interaction was not possible. The aim of the study was to better understand the impact of the confinement period on the use of museum technologies in order to identify implications for future museum experience design.

Introduction

Introduction

Europe’s twentieth century was characterised by competing and/or conflicting visions about the organisation of the continent. This general introduction explains why the editors decided to focus on the Cold War period, briefly sets out the broader historical context, and finally clarifies the use of the word ‘asymmetry.’

How to Design Web Archives Research

How to Design Web Archives Research

The aim of this guide is to provide a starting point for using web archives as a source for social science research. With the migration of many aspects of the so- cial world online, fundamental questions have been raised about how and even when social science research happens in the online sphere (Karpf, 2012). Web archives, or archives of content and communications from the Web through time, crucially provide the means for retrospectively studying dynamic media and online interactions that are often subject to change and deletion.

Une informalité bien ordonnée ? La conversation académique sur Twitter

Une informalité bien ordonnée ? La conversation académique sur Twitter

Twitter et les médias sociaux n’ont pas bonne presse. Pourtant, cette réputation ne correspond pas ou qu’en partie à l’expérience qu’en ont maint-e-s chercheurs et chercheuses. Sur la base d’un corpus de tweets, nous soutiendrons dans cet article que le « Twitter académique » est un reflet des conditions matérielles de la recherche, permet une plus grande visibilité des chercheurs et chercheuses et en conséquence la formation de réseaux atypiques au regard de lieux plus classiques de socialisation universitaire.

Law, Order and Postwar Purge in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (1944 - 1955): Transitional Justice and Redistribution through the example of Justice, Gendarmerie and Police

Law, Order and Postwar Purge in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (1944 - 1955): Transitional Justice and Redistribution through the example of Justice, Gendarmerie and Police

The present doctoral thesis examines the strategies and redistributive effects of political purge in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg after World War II. It examines in detail the judicial and administrative purge of justice personnel, magistrates, police officers and gendarmerie corps members, and the development of law and order in the 20th century. This study treats regulated purge measures as phenomena of transitional justice.
