Keep calm and stay focused. Historicising and intertwining scales and temporalities of online virality

This presentation takes online virality as its starting point, specifically that of memes and the question of their historicisation , in order to question how they may be resituated in a context of production and circulation, taking social, spatial and temporal logics into account. After a discussion of the scalable reading as applied to virality, with specific emphasis on the importance of the spatial and temporal aspects, we propose a case study based on the Harlem Shake.

3D Digital Heritage and Historical Storytelling: Outcomes from the Interreg EMR Terra Mosana Project

3D Digital Heritage and Historical Storytelling: Outcomes from the Interreg EMR Terra Mosana Project

The paper explains how the activities undertaken in the Terra Mosana project have combined the writing of new heritage narratives with the creation of digital 3D virtual experiences. The main objective of the project was to strengthen the sense of belonging to the same community for the citizens of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine by recreating their common history and heritage in 3D. This was achieved through virtual and augmented reality experiences based on cross-border and renewed historical storylines.

Economic Ideas and Political Action in Shaping Economic and Monetary Union: Pierre Werner and Luxembourg

Economic Ideas and Political Action in Shaping Economic and Monetary Union: Pierre Werner and Luxembourg

The international financial centre in Luxembourg grew considerably in the 1960s, driven by proactive government policy, flexible regulation, a willingness to harness external opportunities and the establishment of Community institutions and European funding institutions in the country. As Luxembourg was in a currency union with Belgium within the Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union and did not have its own Central Bank, these developments were all the more meaningful.

"Hybrid is the new normal." Einblicke in die Projekte des Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History am Beispiel der virtuellen Ausstellungen ww1.lu, zeitschichten.be und minett-stories.lu

Seinen Forschungsschwerpunkt in der digitalen Geschichte trägt das 2017 gegründete C²DH bereits im Namen. Überlegungen zu den methodologischen Herausforderungen des Digitalen für die Geschichtswissenschaft stehen bei seiner Arbeit genauso im Mittelpunkt wie das Nachdenken über den Einsatz digitaler Mittel bei der Vermittlung von Zeitgeschichte. Bei dieser Digital Public History spielen besonders die so genannten virtuellen Ausstellungen eine große Rolle.
