In der Technikgeschichte wird oftmals angenommen, dass die industrielle Massenfertigung und die Herausbildung der so genannten Wegwerfgesellschaft zu einem Rückgang bzw. Verschwinden des Reparierens von Konsumgütern geführt haben. In „Shock of the Old“ spricht David Edgerton z.B. davon, dass sich aufgrund der gesunkenen Anschaffungspreise, das Reparieren einfacher Haushaltsgeräte nicht mehr lohne. Das Hauptargument dieser These verweist also auf das sich seit der Vormoderne wandelnde Verhältnis von Personal- und Materialkosten, das letztlich den Neuerwerb von Konsumgütern günstiger gemacht habe, als die Reparatur gebrauchter Güter. Während der Begriff der Wegwerfgesellschaft bis in die 1950er Jahre zurückreicht, werden für westliche Industriegesellschaften vor allem die 1970er und 80er Jahre als Wendepunkte im Verhältnis von Neuanschaffungs- zu Reparaturkosten beschrieben. Ausgangspunkt für den Vortrag sind Zahlen der Luxemburger Statistikbehörde Statec, die zeigen, dass der Reparatursektor in Luxemburg in den 1980er Jahren einerseits zwar in Bewegung, andererseits keineswegs im Verschwinden war. Ausgehend von einer eingehenderen Betrachtung der verfügbaren Statistiken beschreibt der Vortrag die Veränderungen des Luxemburger Reparatursektors und diskutiert daran die These des vermeintlichen Verschwindens des Reparierens von Konsumgütern.

Since its establishment in 1885, the Luxembourg telephone network was characterised by bottlenecks in network expansion, which were in the course of the 20th century to be remedied by new cables (expansion) and new distribution technology (innovation). However, the envisioned expansion was repeatedly slowed down by a lack of trained technical staff and resources. For example, requests for new connections had repeatedly to be rejected and already planned expansion measures had to be postponed. Due to the one-sided focus of government and Luxembourg Post (PTT) administration on network expansion, the maintenance and repair of the network suffered at the same time, so that more frequent defects occurred. At the same time did the repair of defects tie up human and material resources that were then not available for expansion works. The PTT was thus confronted with a constant balancing act between the expansion and modernisation of the network and its maintenance, with the management level prioritising expansion and innovation. The problem was particularly virulent during the rapid expansion of telephony in the 1960s and 70s, but the paper will trace the fundamental conflict of interests for the first one hundred years of telephony in Luxembourg. The paper draws on legal documents and PTT reports to show how the construction, expansion and maintenance of the telephone network was envisioned, and how the shortage of technical staff and resources hampered the smooth operation of the system.

Souvent, les paysages paraissent immuables à nos yeux. Pourtant, l’aspect actuel de nombreux endroits que nous visitons est généralement dû à des transformations naturelles successives ou à l’activité humaine. C’est le cas de la réserve naturelle de la Haard, dans la région du Minett, située dans le sud du Luxembourg. Par le passé, cette réserve a connu beaucoup de changements avant d’adopter son aspect actuel. Nous vous invitons à découvrir la Haard au cours de cette promenade virtuelle. [less ▲]

Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, many groups initiated crowd-sourced archives that invite members of the public to upload personal material connected to the pandemic. By archiving and publishing how "ordinary" people experienced and perceived the pandemic, these platforms influence how the pandemic is remembered and how historians will write about it. This article presents the example of covidmemory.lu and compares contributions to this platform from Luxembourg with others from German speaking countries. Analyzing users' thoughts about empty streets and skies and their experiences with computers and phones for work and leisure at home, this article discusses the potential and the limitations of crowdsourced archives for future historians of technology.

Early in the COVID-19 pandemic, historians – along with archivists and other stakeholders – began to initiate digital memory banks, inviting members of the public to upload personal stories, pictures, videos, or other material connected to the pandemic and its impact on everyday life. This article describes how platforms from Western and Central Europe differ with regard to contributions by children and adolescents, taking the German coronarchiv.de and covidmemory.lu from Luxembourg as the main case studies. Submissions come in various forms, but photographs are the most frequent, echoing the visual bias of social media. By means of selected contributions, the article illustrates the range of topics that can be of interest to future historians of education. The platforms show how COVID-19 influenced not only practices of education, with the introduction of homeschooling, but also the content of teaching, as seen in the many pandemic-related assignments uploaded. In this respect, it is crucial to acknowledge that there are significant gaps in the collections. Most notably, the first wave of infections in Europe is overrepresented, and people that were most existentially affected by the pandemic are underrepresented. Performing a thorough source critique on a selection of contributions, we argue that, despite these gaps, digital memory banks on the pandemic are of significant value for a future historiography of education, as long as the available metadata of the individual submissions are as complete and transparent as possible.

Landschafts- und Ortsnamen spielen als Bezugspunkte für die regionale Identität eine wichtige Rolle. Im Süden Luxemburgs haben sich diese Namen im Zusammenhang mit der industriellen Umgestaltung der Landschaft mehrfach geändert. Die Benennungen und Umbenennungen des Minett reflektieren die industrielle Entwicklung der Region. Dieser Aspekt der Geschichte des Minett ist in der Öffentlichkeit wenig bekannt; er verdient es, erzählt zu werden. [less ▲]
