Florian Vetter began his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Valérie Schafer at the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) in mid-September 2018. His research project focuses on the history of the computerization and digitalization of banking activities and services (with a cross examination of banks and customers, of bank services and their uses and reception), from European perspective. The reception of banking innovations (ATM, credit card, online databases, etc.) will be at the heart of his research.
Florian Vetter holds a Bachelor’s degree in Cultures Européennes – Histoire from the University of Luxembourg and a Master’s degree in History and Science of History from the Free University of Berlin. His master thesis analysed the rise of National Socialism in Germany (1920-1933) based on a press analysis of the Luxemburger Wort.
