The retrieval of the digital orphan "L’Histoire de Luxembourg"

This is a story about how a lesson on Digital Source Criticism for bachelor students of history who had to sort out how Youtube works, led to the retrieval of a series of animations on the History of Luxembourg. Thanks to the company Kiwi Media, the ‘digital orphans’ have found a new stage on Youtube.

What happens when archives and research are transferred into the physical space of a museum? 'La Forge d’une société moderne' and other stories

A main focus will be on what happens when restored, digitised and partly retouched glass plates are framed and staged in a museum setting.
