This innovative Atlas - based on the work of more than 80 experts - maps for the first time the development of the historical profession and the core institutions of historiography in Europe since 1800. It gives a comprehensive overview of the making of the infrastructure of historical studies from archives to universities for all European countries as well as analyzing general trends and regional or national particularities of the historians' craft in contemporary Europe. Featuring a specially-commissioned set of maps and a systematical integration of texts and images, it provides an accessible teaching instrument and essential reading for scholars interested in the development of European culture and the history of European nationalism.

Welche Handlungsspielräume besaßen adelige Frauen in Frankreich und England in der frühen Neuzeit? Waren sie im Umfeld der Religionskriege, der politischen Machtkämpfe und des wirtschaftlichen Nepotismus dieses Zeitalters eingeschränkt oder eröffneten sich ihnen hier neue Chancen? Im Mittelpunkt der Studie stehen die Herzogin von La Trémoïlle, bekannt als »Königin der Hugenotten«, und ihre Schwägerin, die Gräfin von Derby. Anhand der Biographien dieser prominenten Gestalten werden die Entfaltungsmöglichkeiten für Frauen in einer zutiefst patriarchalisch geprägten Gesellschaft exemplarisch beleuchtet. Das aktive Engagement beider Protagonistinnen sowohl in der Fronde als auch im Englischen Bürgerkrieg wirft neue Schlaglichter auf Geschlechterrollen und Geschlechterbeziehungen in dieser Epoche. Ihr Handeln ist dokumentiert in Bittschriften, der Mobilisierung von Netzwerken und ihrer Vermittlungstätigkeit im Hintergrund der großen Politik. Es beschränkt sich dabei aber nicht auf die unmittelbaren Kriegszusammenhänge. Im Gegenteil. Viele adelige Frauen waren – entgegen dem Bild einer »natürlichen« weiblichen Passivität, das theologische Schriften, Haushaltsbücher und Etikette vermitteln – höchst aktiv an den Verwaltungsgeschäften umfangreicher Ländereien beteiligt, sie beaufsichtigten das Haus- und Dienstpersonal oder zogen bei Gerichtsprozessen im Hintergrund die Fäden. Eine detaillierte Untersuchung der wirtschaftlichen Situation der Familie La Trémoïlle und ihres Verwaltungsapparates zeigt, dass der Einfluss von Frauen im konkreten Fall davon abhing, ob ihre Ehe als ökonomische Partnerschaft funktionierte und auf gegenseitigem Vertrauen beruhte, oder nicht. Mit der Familie La Trémoïlle als Prisma, eröffnen sich neue Blickwinkel auf die Hof- und Adelskultur Frankreichs und Englands. Um etwa den angestrebten Titel eines »prince étranger« am Hofe Ludwigs XIV. zu erlangen, gingen die La Trémoïlle Heiratsallianzen mit den souveränen Fürstenhäusern von Oranien-Nassau, Hessen-Kassel und Derby ein. Letztere wurden – entgegen ihrem tatsächlichen Status – als Herren über die Isle of Man dargestellt. Die Wirkungsmacht von Repräsentationen und die selektive Nutzung von Verbindungen mit angesehenen protestantischen Dynastien versuchte auch Lady Derby am Hofe Charles I. und später Charles II. ins Spiel zu bringen. Ihr blieb allerdings kein Erfolg beschieden. Die Briefe, die Lady Derby vierzig Jahre lang an ihre »liebe Schwester«, die Herzogin von La Trémoïlle, schrieb, bilden ein au?ergewöhnlich reiches Quellenmaterial. Sie stehen im Zentrum der Detailanalyse. Zusammen mit einer Reihe anderer Korrespondenzen, persönlichen Memoiren, Autobiographien, Inventaren und Konten sind sie das Rückgrat der Studie; sie zeichnen ein schillerndes Bild des Zeitalters.

This book is divided into three main parts, dealing with historical narration, territory and language. Historical narrations have played a key role in ‘inventing’ national, gendered, ethnic and racial identities, and in presenting deterministic and essentialist conceptions of time and human action. The importance of (abstract and social) space in the production of history and the equal importance of the temporal dimension in the production of geography have been underlined by Doreen Massey. Her concept of ‘space/time’ abolishes the binary opposition of time and space and defines them as interrelated.This double process of spatial and temporal construction of identity is analysed here in a diachronic way from the late nineteenth to the early twenty-first century, comprising the period traditionally considered as key to nation-building processes as well as current trends towards de-and renationalisation. The scale of this study is limited to discourse in Luxembourg and concerns the production of internal and external borders. Part One retraces the ‘genealogy’ of the master narrative from the early modern period and examines its absorption into public expressions of political self-identity after 1919. It then looks at the dissemination of the master narrative by means of textbooks, celebrations, literature and popular culture. Finally, it highlights the transformations of this narrative, the opening of fields of possibilities and new trends. Part Two examines how representations of space complement the master narrative by embedding past experiences in a certain territory and within certain defined borders. Territorial delimitations are projected back in time and legitimised by reference to the same bounded space in the past. Two different discursive strategies for the creation of ‘collective identity’ are distinguished: the centripetal and the centrifugal. The former characterises the national master narrative, while the latter has more of a supranational, Great Regional or European focus. Part Three traces the evolution of Luxembourgish, which still is in full nationalisation mode. Once again, the watershed here seems to have come in 1919, when the language began to be seen not as a mere dialect of German, but as a distinctly different tongue. On first sight, a native language seems to be a constant of human existence, in the sense both of history and of an individual’s life. As its title indicates, however, this book seeks to deconstruct the notion of a natural language and focuses on the act of creation and on the social actors involved in this process. The evolution of the language is, moreover, placed in a broad context. Th e gradual codification of Luxembourgish was part of a larger movement which aimed to give the comparatively young state a sense of substance and meaning. As in most European nationstates, the state of Luxembourg existed before any systematic attempts at nation-building were undertaken. It was—and still is—heavily involved in this process. Thus, in recent years, Luxembourg has created new national institutions, such as the Central Bank in 1998, the University of Luxembourg in 2003, and the establishment of several Luxembourg-related research institutes between 1995 and 2008. This book investigates whether this nationalisation tendency may be confirmed by the study of the representations of the past, the territory and the language from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day.

Amateur photographs and films are being increasingly used by television and documentary filmmakers to illustrate and authenticate their work. Artists pursue their own ways to enter into dialogue with personal images of memories. There is also an increasing interest in private images to be found among social scientists (cultural anthropologists, historians, media theorists) and also among psychotherapists. To bring these different ways of dealing with amateur images together, the Centre national de l'audiovisuel and the University of Luxembourg organised in 2008 an international colloquium entitled The Manipulation and Valorisation of Amateur Images. Thirteen researchers, artists and media specialists, among them Patricia Zimmermann and Heather Norris Nicholson, were invited to give a paper and present their theoretical framework, empirical analyses, ethical reflections and concrete creative usages in this book.
