Tinkering with black boxes and the need for a critical mindset

From 20th to 24th February, a winter school on “Skills in digital humanities” was organised at the University of Luxembourg, where the participants were introduced to the software Nodegoat and the development of databases. It was a possibility of tinkering with a digital tool that was completely new to me. In the following, I will give a personal account of my own experiences with Nodegoat, and present a critical reflection on the problems I encountered and the use of digital tools.

I need a research tool to…

A whole range of digital tools exists nowadays to help historians in their daily work, but how to choose the “perfect” one for your needs? Should you lose time searching for the holy Grail, or take the risk to try out and study tools that, in the end, might not fit your needs?

Digital Humanities and Digital Physics

From the 1940s on the computer starts playing a prominent role, shaping the field of physics. The integration of the computer in this discipline was by no means a natural inclusion, but a process of debate and negotiation of what it meant to “do” physics and what kind of knowledge can be acquired using computers.

The limitations of data

Data are not the same as sources and datasets need rigidly defined categories of information which does not allow for deviation and reinforces binary oppositions such as male and female.

To digitise or not to digitise, that is the question

In the last decade, the use of ‘all things digital’ has taken flight in historical studies, supporting new research with digital tools and platforms. But we also have to recognise the limitations when it comes to digitising, accessing and using digitised material.

Is the current Jewish population losing its cohesion and identity due to the Second World War?

Is the current Jewish population losing its cohesion and identity due to the Second World War?

This research examines differences in identity formation among generations of Czech, Slovak, French and Luxembourgish Jews who grew up either under communism or in liberal Western Europe. By gathering data, the aim is to create an international virtual library and cloud storage not only for professional educators, but also for the public. My focus is on the differences and similarities within and between generations, and on the changing historical and political circumstances of both state communism and established liberal democracy that have shaped individuals’ consciousness and identity.
