Lost Memories of WW1

How do we look back on the Great War today, a century after the events unfolded? What do we remember of that time? What has been handed down to us of the conflicts and traumas that took place? What memories are conserved by objects, places and commemorative practices? And what stories have been deliberately sidelined or simply lost?

The Historical Art of Projection

In the Hands-On History seminar on the 24th of May by Dr. Ludwig M. Vogl-Bienek and Karin Bienek from the University of Trier we were introduced to the history of the magic lantern. After a brief overview during the lecture, we got to experience a live performance of the magic lantern in our Digital History lab. We were also encouraged to experiment with some smaller but original magic lanterns.
