In the Euclidean case, it is well-known, by Malgrange and Ehrenpreis, that linear differential operators with constant coefficients are solvable. However, what happens, if we genuinely extend this situation and consider systems of linear invariant differential operators, is still solvable? In case of Rn (for some positive integer n), the question has been proved mainly by Hörmander. We will show that this remains still true for Riemannian symmetric spaces of non-compact type X = G/K. More precisely, we will present a possible strategy to solve this problem by using the Fourier trans- form and its Paley-Wiener(-Schwartz) theorem for (distributional) sections of vector bundles over X. We will get complete solvability for the hyperbolic plane H2 = SL(2, R)/SO(2) and beyond. This work was part of my doctoral dissertation supervised by Martin Olbrich. [less ▲]

Over one million German military dead of the Second World War are missing. The private association VDK Deutsche Kriegsgräberfürsorge e.V. (VDK) is, as the German War Graves Commission the official representative of the German government responsible for the localisation and exhumation of German military graves, the identification of the dead, the reburial and the maintenance of military cemeteries worldwide. More than 75 years after the end of the violent conflict, the VDK has completed its work in Western Europe, but has continued its systematic search for graves and remains of German Wehrmacht soldiers in Eastern Europe, especially in the Russian Federation. The paper presents the localisation, recovery and identification of remains and uses a case study in Russia to discuss the complexity of German remains both in German society and politics and in the host country Russia. The difficulty in dealing with dead bodies marked as perpetrators and held responsible for inhumane crimes is only one challenge for the VDK. In addition, the paper reviews the hesitant use of DNA identification, the lack of interest in clarifying the fate of MIA soldiers in German post-war politics and the existing resentment towards Nazi dead, which delays or ignores the forensic processing of German war dead.

We initially tested whether besides possessing a positive self-concept, possessing an accurate self-concept has an incremental effect on students’ school adaptation. As self-knowledge index, we calculated ipsative profile correlations between 9th grade students’ academic self-concepts (i.e., how well students think they do) in the domains Math, German, and French and their respective achievement test scores in these domains (i.e., how well students actually do). We then related students’ self-knowledge to their general performance across these tests, their school satisfaction, and their perceived quality of the teacher-student relationship, assuming that accurate self-concepts lay the foundation for adaptive self-regulation processes (e.g., building on strengths and remedying or accepting weaknesses). In a first sample (N = 6279), we found that self-knowledge explained an incremental amount of variance in school adaptation above and beyond students’ general and domain-specific self-concepts in multiple regression analyses. The better aligned students’ self-concept profile was with their actual achievement profile, the better their performance across these domains, the more satisfied students were with schooling, and the better their relationship with their teachers. Except for school satisfaction, these findings were replicated in another cohort of 9th grade students (N = 6493), and they remained robust when we used rang-correlation instead of Pearson-correlation to derive our self-knowledge index. Notably, both indices seemed largely independent from students’ self-concepts and, on average, students seem to better “know” about their academic abilities compared to other aspects of their personality. We discuss necessary improvements to further substantiate the adaptive role of self-knowledge in self-regulation. [less ▲]

In February 2021, a call for contributions was launched through the media (newspapers and radio) to collect ego-documents about the men, women and their families affected by the Nazi draft during the Second World War. The response was overwhelmingly successful, and the team received more than 200 calls and messages in the first few days. The collection phase (February to October 2021) involved visiting families to bring the originals to campus, where they were scanned and indexed. Interaction with donors and the public was a pivotal activity to enrich the personal documents with additional information about the individuals' backgrounds for an in-depth analysis. After completing the survey process, the team collected 160 collections (from 160 contributors), creating the central source of documentation for research into personal experiences of war. [less ▲]

Project description Ecole d’été « Participation & Démocratie » 16-20 Mai (Esch-Belval ; Esch-sur-Alzette; Dudelange) La plateforme de la démocratie participative/Université du Luxembourg a le grand plaisir d’accueillir la cinquième édition de l’école d’été internationale (International Summer School) “Participation et démocratie”. Dans le prolongement des précédentes éditions, l’école d’été vise à approfondir les réflexions sur le fonctionnement de nos démocraties représentatives et sur les différents processus démocratiques – plus ou moins innovants – visant à promouvoir une participation plus directe et délibérative des citoyens. S’adressant aux étudiant·e·s en sciences politiques et sociales, ainsi qu’aux praticien·ne·s souhaitant renforcer leurs compétences, l’École d’été offre une semaine de formation interactive et personnalisée avec des enseignant·e·s reconnu·e·s internationalement. Elle propose un encadrement adapté aux étudiant·e·s en fin de master et aux doctorant·e·s à différents stades de leur avancement. Elle propose aussi aux praticien·ne·s de mettre en dialogue leur pratiques avec les évolutions de la gouvernance et de la participation citoyenne. L’ambition est de confronter les participant·e·s aux pratiques de recherche de chercheurs·euses confirmé·e·s, tout en donnant une opportunité de présenter ses travaux et de recevoir les commentaires et recommandations de des intervenant·e·s invité·es, mais aussi des autres participant·e·s. Cette école d’été est le fruit d’une collaboration forte entre cinq universités francophones d’excellence : Sciences Po Bordeaux, l’Université Laval, l’Université libre de Bruxelles, l’Université de Lausanne et l’Université du Luxembourg. Cela en fait une école unique dans le champ des sciences sociales et de la science politique francophone notamment par sa capacité à comparer les approches, les cas nationaux et leurs transformations. La spécificité de cette école est d’être l’une des rares en Europe à faire du français la langue de travail principale, même si l’anglais est utilisé pour certaines interventions. La présente édition marque la première édition de l’école à Luxembourg après que celle-ci se soit tenue à deux reprises à Bordeaux en 2016 et 2021, à Laval en 2017, à Bruxelles en 2018 et à Lausanne en 2020. Cette édition sera aussi l’occasion d’ouvrir un regard sur les nombreuses expériences participatives du Luxembourg et de saluer la collaboration fructueuse entre quatre acteurs engagés dans la l’étude et la promotion de la démocratie à Luxembourg : la Plateforme Luxembourgeoise de la Démocratie Participative (PLDP), la Chaire de Recherche en Études Parlementaires, ETICC et la ville de Dudelange en tant que ville pilote dans la démocratie participative. L’école sera organisée autour des thématiques suivantes : Y-a-t-il une demande pour plus de participation à l’ère de la désinformation ? Etat des lieux des consultations citoyennes Participation des jeunes et budget participatif Participation citoyenne dans les tiers lieux : le cas de Esch2022 Capitale européenne de la culture Digitalisation des campagnes politiques et effets sur la participation [less ▲]

Situated at the axis of societal issues and academic research, the renewed popularity of applied history has raised several questions about its practice. The most direct questions come from non-academic partners. What can one expect of applied historians? How will those expectat ions be met? What if the methods and tools of applied history fall short of their goal? And is it even that important that organizations learn to think about the past , when they are oriented towards the present and future? Other questions stem from academic concerns. Is applied history more than a reiteration of public history? Do societal questions and concerns have a place within academic history departments? And if so, what are the ethical boundaries of this type of research? Some of these topics remain open questions. Some have been eloquently answered. Some remain subject of (fierce) discussion. Therefore, this third Corvus applied history workshop joins academic and non-academic expertise in order to assess and debate the value of applied history practices in different sectors. Discussants: Thomas Cauvin, Associate Professor of Public History, Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) Gill Bennett OBE Senior Associate Fellow, Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) Historians Pieter Huistra Assistant Professor Theory of History, University of Utrecht Jason Steinhauer Global Fellow, The Wilson Center Koen Vandenweyer Delegation of Flanders to the European Union Alexandra Van den Berghe Corvus Research Project, KU Leuven Programme: 9.15am : Welcome 9.30am : New name, old practices? *(what is already out there)* 11am : Coffee break 11.30am : Where, when, how? *(what should be out there)* 1pm : Lunch break 2pm : What (not) to do? *(what should not be out there)* 3.30pm : Conclusions 3.45pm : End Starting questions: 9.30am : New name, old practices? *(what is already out there)* In these last few years t he notion of ‘Applied History’ has seen renewed popular ity. Proponents thereby often promise to reinvigorate the ‘long lost pr actice’ of using histor y in the present. Yet teachers, journalists, archivists, politicians, mar keteers and many others (including academics) have never stopped applying history in their professional activit ies. So do you think that there is already enough ‘applied history’ out there, particularly in your sector? 11.30am : Where, when, how? *(what should be out there)* The ‘next step’ in Applied History is usually considered to be the development of new ways of applying historical insight to issues in the present . This of course begs the question what those methods should be designed to do – what issues deserve attent ion and which new methods and tools look promising? In other words, what can or should applied history try to achieve as its ‘next step’? 2pm : What (not) to do? *(what should not be out there)* Not everybody believes that applying past insights to present concerns is a good idea. Some see no value in historical information, nor in historical thinking. Others fear the applicat ion of history in the present, as uses of the past become abuses of the past far too quickly. Therefor e, what do you think should be absolutely avoided when ‘doing ’ applied history? [less ▲]

n times of global crises, people turn to history to understand their own and their society’s situation. This is an issue addressed by those active in the field of public history. In this roundtable, teachers share their experiences with academic courses training students on both sides of the Atlantic in taking stock of public and applied history. First, students investigate how specific audiences have dealt with historic events, periods, or developments considered to be collective or cultural traumas. Secondly, students design a product or project targeted at a specific audience, online or offline, aiming to reconstruct, contextualize, and represent a specific topic. [less ▲]

Wars never happen ‘just like that’ or ‘out of the blue’. They are the culmination of complex processes that span years and sometimes even decades. In his art, Maxim Kantor has addressed the threat embodied by the apparently seamless transition from Soviet Union to the Russian Federation and guided democracy, and his position has always been unmistakeable: Vladimir Putin and the system that produced him are, and always were, dangerous. Now more than ever, choosing the right words matters, and speaking them in situations where we would rather be silent endows the statements we make with a renewed and uncomfortable sense of moral and political weight. Understanding the circumstances that led to the Russian invasion of Ukraine requires a thoughtful engagement with historical narratives and the perspectives they present. Words are central to this process. As we choose what to say and what not to say, we contribute to the discourses that will shape the political order of tomorrow. The discussion will be centred around a selection of paintings by Maxim Kantor, each illustrating or addressing themes or aspects of the current war between the Russian Federation and Ukraine and its impacts on human rights in Eastern Europe and beyond. Students will prepare and present discussion questions. [less ▲]

Coming from various occupied territories and uninvolved or neutral countries, such as Spain and Switzerland, over two million foreigners served in the ranks of the Wehrmacht and the Waffen-SS. These men had a significant impact on the war and on how it was experienced and conducted. How these men from more than 40 countries experienced the war in German uniform as transnational soldiers remains essentially unexamined. Focusing on those who came from Luxembourg, this paper traces the experiences of these soldiers, in order to provide a new perspective on the European experience of war. [less ▲]

Ee vun den Ziler ass et, an den nächste Joren d’Previsioune méi präzis ze maachen, ma och méi wäit am viraus kënne viraussoen, wat geschitt. Konkret ginn d’Modeller elo schonn agesat, fir d’Astronauten op der Internationaler Weltraumstatioun ze schützen. Zu Darmstadt huet d'ESA een neien Iwwerwaachungszentral, wou nieft dem Weltraumwieder och aner Elementer vun der Weltraumsécherheet am A behale ginn. Esou zum Beispill de Weltraumschrott, mëttlerweil gëtt et vill Satellitten, déi net fonctionéieren a mat Aktive kéinte kollidéieren. Mat mathematesche Modeller sollen déi aktiv Satellitte gewarnt ginn a se esou hir Positioun fréizäiteg kënnen änneren. [less ▲]

Theoretischer Hintergrund: Studierende haben viele Freiheiten in der Gestaltung ihres Alltags, fühlen sich aber oft auch gestresst und hin- und hergerissen zwischen Handlungsmöglichkeiten (Grund et al., 2014). Solche intrapsychischen Konflikte werden häufig als ursächlich für psychisches Wohlbefinden betrachtet (Gorges & Grund, 2017). Achtsamkeit beinhaltet die Lenkung der Aufmerksamkeit auf das unmittelbare Erleben und eine offene und nicht wertende Haltung gegenüber diesen mentalen Erfahrungen. Sie steht in einem positiven Zusammenhang mit Wohlbefinden und intrapsychischen Kongruenz und könnte daher hilfreich für eine gelungene Selbstregulation sein (Brown & Ryan, 2003; Carlson, 2013). Fragestellung: Ziel der vorliegenden Arbeit ist es, die Beziehung zwischen Achtsamkeit, motivationalen Konflikten und wahrgenommenem Stress im Alltag von Universitätsstudenten zu untersuchen und dabei auch Hinweise für mögliche Wirkmechanismen zu sammeln. Methode: Im Rahmen einer einwöchigen smartphone-gestützten Experience-Sampling-Studie wurden 107 Universitätsstudenten fünfmal täglich zu ihrer momentanen Achtsamkeit (in den Facetten Mit Aufmerksamkeit handeln und Akzeptieren ohne Bewertung) und ihrem motivationalen Konflikterleben (in den Facetten Wollen-Konflikte und Sollen-Konflikte) befragt. Zusätzlich wurde jeden Abend ihr Stresserleben erhoben. Die Beziehung zwischen täglicher Achtsamkeit, motivationalen Konflikten und wahrgenommenem Stress wurde auf Tagesebene mit Mehrebenenanalysen analysiert. Ergebnisse und Diskussion: Sowohl alltägliche Wollen-Konflikte als auch Sollen-Konflikte waren ein Prädiktor für abendliches Stresserleben. Je intensiver der Eindruck über den Tag, etwas anderes tun zu wollen und zu sollen, umso mehr abendlichen Stress berichteten die Studierenden. Diese Effekte blieben auch bestehen, wenn das Stresslevel vom Vortag kontrolliert wurde. Dieser Befund stärkt die Interpretation, dass intrapsychische motivationale Konflikte tatsächlich abträglich für das Wohlbefinden sind und nicht nur ein Begleitumstand. Wurden beide Achtsamkeitsfacetten zusätzlich in das Regressionsmodell aufgenommen, verloren beide Konfliktvariablen ihre Vorhersagekraft; stattdessen zeigte sich ein direkter Effekt für Achtsamkeit in der Ausprägung Akzeptieren ohne Bewertung. Die Ergebnisse unterstreichen die Relevanz motivationaler Konflikte und Achtsamkeit für das Stressempfinden in akademischen Kontexten. Da Achtsamkeit trainierbar ist, zeigen sie auch einen potentiellen Ansatz auf, um das Wohlbefinden von Studierenden in Zukunft positiv zu beeinflussen. Literatur: Brown, K. W., & Ryan, R. M. (2003).

Februar 2022 nimmt Wladimir Putin, Präsident der Russischen Föderation, die Vergangenheit zum Anlass, den souveränen Staat Ukraine anzugreifen. Neben machtpolitischen Argumenten wie der Bedrohung durch die NATO wird die historische Vergangenheit der Ukraine und Russlands instrumentalisiert, um Putins politisches Handeln zu rechtfertigen.

Mediekonsum decidéiert iwwer Meenung. Alternativ Medie wären ofgeschalt ginn. Déi russesch Gesellschaft wär och passiv ginn a géif sech fir d’Konflikter net méi wierklech interesséieren. An an der russescher Sprooch géif een den Ament de Krich net "Krich" nennen, mä just eng "Militäroperatioun". Aktuell riskéiert een, wann ee vun engem "Krich" schwätzt och bis zu 15 Joer Prisong a Russland. Eng klassesch Oppositioun, wéi mir se hei kennen, wär schwiereg.

From a technical point of view, one can say that there have been extraordinary developments in the broad areas of Artificial Intelligence and Data Science that increasingly determine our lives. Think, for example, of the many intelligent assistants that are playing an ever greater role in road traffic, in hospitals and in many other areas of application. Art is affected by this as well, because the computer-assisted and AI-supported implementation of creative ideas and thoughts and experimentation with new things have led to innovative results.

Der Tod eines Soldaten unterscheidet sich vom natürlichen Tod eines Zivilisten, der durch Alter oder Krankheit stirbt. Er stirbt oft jung und durch Gewalt. Im Krieg zu fallen war stets eine Besonderheit. Die Heldenverehrung und Phrasen wie „Gefallen für das Vaterland!“ sind schnelle Assoziationen mit Tod im Krieg.

University students have a lot of freedom in organizing their everyday lives, but often also feel stressed and torn between action opportunities. Mindfulness entails the self-regulation of attention on immediate experience and an open and non-judging attitude towards these mental experiences. It is positively related to well-being and to intrapsychic congruence. The aim of the present work is to examine the relationship of daily mindfulness, motivational conflict, and perceived stress in the everyday life of university students. During a week of smartphone-based experience-sampling, 108 university students were asked five times daily about their momentary mindfulness and whether they experience motivational conflicts. Additionally, we assessed perceived stress each evening. The relationship between daily mindfulness, motivational conflict, and perceived stress was analyzed on the daily level with multi-level analyses. Both aggregated daily conflict (i.e., feeling that one should be doing something else) and mindfulness (i.e., being non-judgmental) yielded an effect on perceived stress, even when controlling for between-person differences in study load, for example. Findings underline the relevance of mindfulness for perceived stress in academic contexts and thereby also show an approach to positively influence well-being in university students in the future.

After the Second World War, Luxembourg became a leading player in international relations. As a founding member of most of the major international institutions – including the United Nations (1945), the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (1949), the Council of Europe (1949), the European Communities (starting with the European Coal and Steel Community in 1951) and then the European Union (1993) –, Luxembourg assumed a key role in European integration and multilateralism. Its constant aim has always been to maintain and strengthen the framework of international law as a basis for democracy, human rights and the values of freedom, peace and security worldwide. Luxembourg’s diplomatic apparatus serves the people of Luxembourg, the country’s institutions, the private sector and civil society by supporting and defending Luxembourg’s political, economic, business, cultural and consular interests abroad.

The Belgium-Luxembourg Economic Union (BLEU) was established on 25 July 1921. Some years later, in 1935, three additional sections were added to the BLEU Convention: on financial and monetary matters, a common trade regime and a “special revenue community” with specific excise duties. In 1963, the provisions of the BLEU were revised following the entry into force of the European Economic Community (EEC) and Benelux. The two countries renewed the Convention in a new enhanced version on 18 December 2002, reflecting a determination to extend their collaboration beyond the economic and monetary field and paving the way for closer political and administrative cooperation, especially in the areas of justice, citizenship, health and cross-border synergies in the Greater Region, and creating a framework for dialogue within the European Union. For one century now, Belgium and Luxembourg have enjoyed a strong bilateral partnership, one that has been marked by various difficulties and tensions but has been deepened and renewed over the years. The centenary of the BLEU, which occurs in a context beset by unprecedented challenges and uncertainties for the Greater Region, Europe and the international community, is an opportunity for discussion and reflection on the lessons that can be learned from the past, the current situation and prospects for the future of this union.

The Fall of Monuments: a Public History Monuments have, for a few years now, been hitting the headlines all over the world. Public debates do not focus so much on the erection of new monuments as they do on acts of vandalism, removal, and destruction. If destructions of monuments are not new – for example during the French Revolution – their multiple examples all around the world (United States, England, Australia, Spain, Argentina, South Africa for instance) raise questions about their origins, meanings, and consequences. In my presentation, I propose to understand those synchronous destructions and removals through the angle of public history. Developed as a process to include publics into its production, interpretation, and communication, public history helps to better understand the issues at stake in destroying monuments. In the words of Ludmilla Jordanova, the past is more than ever considered as a public property subject to many different interpretations. Remembering and interpreting the past has become more democratic, more participatory, more diverse but has also shacked power relations. New participatory practices have impacted how we memorialize and interpret the past at official levels. Questions such as who owns the past and who can decide what historical events, actors can be remembered through monuments are being reconsidered. In this reinvention of our relations to monuments – and indirectly to the past – I propose to reconsider the role of historians. I argue that more than simply interpreting the past, historians can help communities deciding what to do with (unwanted) monuments [less ▲]

La Commission Luxembourgeoise pour la coopération avec l’UNESCO et la Bibliothèque nationale du Luxembourg invitent à leur cycle de conférences dans le cadre des « Rendez-Vous de l’UNESCO ». Le thème central du cycle est cette année : « Mankind and Media. Rethinking the Roles in the Age of Information » Les dernières années ont en outre montré clairement qu’on est fortement dépendant de la transmission des informations vite et performante : on demande toujours plus de données, plus d’informations, plus de connectivité. Mais peut-on conserver une vue d’ensemble dans ce flux d’information hyperrapide ? Peut-on encore contrôler la transformation des informations par les médias numériques ? Où en est l’humain devant l’évolution exponentielle des technologies, de l’intelligence artificielle et du commerce de nos données ? Qui reste à l’origine de l’information et qui comment nous l’interprétons ? Les conférences traitent cette thématique en différentes perspectives. Le 25 février, Prof. Dr. Christoph Schommer de l’Université du Luxembourg fera l’ouverture en posant la question : L’intelligence Artificielle? Où en sommes-nous ? Il abordera les possibilités, chances et risques de ces nouvelles technologies. 4 journalistes se réuniront le 22 avril et discuteront, animés par Josée Hansen, la transmission d’informations et l’objectivité dans le temps des « Fake News » et du « Click Bait ». Dr. Manuela di Franco nous introduira le 1er juillet dans le monde des dessins animés et se penchera sur leur rôle dans la transmission des messages subliminaux et propagandistes. Ian di Toffoli et Prof. Dr. Lukas K. Sosoe s’entretiendront le 30 septembre sur les problèmes et limites de l’éthique dans le monde digital. Qu’il ne faut pas oublier l’art dans la transmission des messages nous rappelleront les 4 artistes qui poursuivront le 2nd décembre, dans la dernière table ronde de ce cycle modérée par Dr. Nora Schleich, le rôle de la liberté artistique face à la libre expression des opinions. Que peut et même doit faire l’art ? La Bibliothèque nationale du Luxembourg aménagera pour chacune de ces soirées, qui auront lieu toujours jeudi à 19hrs, une salle assez grande pour assurer la réunion en présence physique et, le cas échéant, en respect des restrictions actuelles. 25.02.2021 Der Mensch und die Künstliche Intelligenz.

Although the idea of Europe dates back to ancient times and was crystallised in the Enlightenment, the plan for European unification emerged in the second half of the 20th century as a consequence of an economic process based on a single market and a single currency. European integration is therefore a recent chapter in the history of Europe, one which has been written before our very eyes, but it remains fragmented into disparate national histories. In the 21st century, those writing the history of Europe find themselves confronted with a threefold challenge: they must meet the demands of the digital age, adjust to the paradigm shift within the historical discipline and navigate the geopolitical upheavals that the continent has been experiencing since 1989 (the fall of communism; the enlargement of the European Union; the many crises the EU has faced, including Brexit; the divide between institutions and citizens; the socio-economic consequences of the global crisis, including the COVID-19 health crisis; the new nature of transatlantic relations, etc.).

Our working hypothesis is that key factors in COVID-19 imaging are the available imaging data and their label noise and confounders, rather than network architectures per se. Thus, we applied existing state-of-the-art convolution neural network frameworks based on the U-Net architecture, namely nnU-Net [3], and focused on leveraging the available training data. We did not apply any pre-training nor modi ed the network architecture. First, we enriched training information by generating two additional labels for lung and body area. Lung labels were created with a public available lung segmentation network and weak body labels were generated by thresholding. Subsequently, we trained three di erent multi-class networks: 2-label (original background and lesion labels), 3-label (additional lung label) and 4-label (additional lung and body label). The 3-label obtained the best single network performance in internal cross-validation (Dice-Score 0.756) and on the leaderboard (Dice- Score 0.755, Haussdor 95-Score 57.5). To improve robustness, we created a weighted ensemble of all three models, with calibrated weights to optimise the ranking in Dice-Score. This ensemble achieved a slight performance gain in internal cross-validation (Dice-Score 0.760). On the validation set leaderboard, it improved our Dice-Score to 0.768 and Haussdor 95- Score to 54.8. It ranked 3rd in phase I according to mean Dice-Score. Adding unlabelled data from the public TCIA dataset in a student-teacher manner signi cantly improved our internal validation score (Dice-Score of 0.770). However, we noticed partial overlap between our additional training data (although not human-labelled) and  nal test data and therefore submitted the ensemble without additional data, to yield realistic assessments.

Au 31 janvier 2020 à minuit (heure de Bruxelles), le Royaume-Uni a quitté l'Union européenne. Cette sortie n'est pourtant pas totale : conformément à l’accord de retrait, le pays est entré dans une transition qui lui permet de négocier sa future relation avec l’UE, tout en restant provisoirement intégré à un certain nombre de politiques européennes. Cette phase doit prendre fin au 31 décembre 2020 au plus tôt, mais les pourparlers semblent actuellement en impasse. S’il demeure la conséquence directe du référendum organisé le 23 juin 2016 par l’ancien Premier Ministre David Cameron, le « Brexit » reflète de longues décennies de rapports tumultueux avec l’Europe supranationale, qui ont nourri l’euroscepticisme et anti-européenisme des Britanniques.[...] [less ▲]

Dr Sylvie Kerger est docteure en psychologie et enseignante-chercheuse à l’Université du Luxembourg. Elle enseigne au Bachelor en sciences de l’éducation et dans ses travaux de recherche, elle s’intéresse aux stéréotypes de genre dans l’enfance. Depuis leur plus jeune âge, les enfants sont confrontés à de nombreux stéréotypes de genre, notamment dans leur environnement familial, sociétal (par exemple, à travers le marketing genré) et éducatif. C’est notamment dans ce dernier contexte que la Dr Sylvie Kerger mène, ensemble avec la Dr Laurence Brasseur, un projet de recherche qui a été rendu possible grâce au financement du Ministère de l’égalité entre les femmes et les hommes. L’objectif de cette étude est de révéler les représentations du genre dans les manuels scolaires utilisés à l’école fondamentale au Luxembourg. Transmetteurs de valeurs et de connaissances, les manuels scolaires jouent un rôle prépondérant dans la socialisation. Grâce à un état des lieux du contexte luxembourgeois, ce projet permettra d’élaborer un ensemble de recommandations pour les acteurs concernés et fournira des outils qui faciliteront l’application d’un regard critique sur le matériel didactique.

As we mark the 50th anniversary of the Werner Report, it is well worth analysing the role of Economic and Monetary Union at a time of uncertainty as to the wider European project, via an interdisciplinary approach that draws on historical and archive research and takes into consideration the theoretical debates in the literature and the various methodological challenges.What are the multifaceted future provocation facing Economic and Monetary Union? What steps still need to be taken to complete the project? How can we strengthen the international role of the euro and bolster Europe’s economic and financial autonomy? How can we best tackle technological developments in the field of money and finance? And how is the COVID-19 crisis testing the boundaries of the European integration? [less ▲]

La coopération transfrontalière en Europe émerge dans les années 1960, dans le cadre de jumelages entre municipalités et sur la toile de fond marqué par la construction de la Communauté économique européenne (CEE). Elle se développera sous l’impulsion du Conseil de l’Europe – qui promouvra les relations de bon voisinage entre les autorités locales des États concernés, et de la CEE – qui mettra en place un système d’accords de coopération transfrontalière entre les pays communautaires, ainsi qu’avec les pays voisins. La convention-cadre européenne sur la coopération transfrontalière entre collectivités ou autorités territoriales (la « Convention de Madrid ») a été signée par les États membres du Conseil de l’Europe le 25 mai 1980. Son texte a été renforcé par deux protocoles additionnels dédiés à la coopération transfrontalière (en 1995) et interterritoriale (en 1998). [...] [less ▲]

A hands-on demonstration of the Kinora Viewer Replica. This public online event shows the fruits of a recent successful collaboration between the C2DH and the Department of Engineering. Combining historical inquiry with a hands-on and technical approach – involving the latest 3D modelling and desktop manufacturing engineering techniques – a media historian and two engineers joined forces to produce a working replica of a very special object in the history of (early) cinema: the Kinora viewer. This rare motion picture apparatus from the early 1900s is arguably the first motion picture technology that was specifically designed for home use. The Kinora viewer makes use of a flipbook mechanism, in which a series of paper-based unperformated photographs were attached to a wheel. By turning the wheel and looking through the viewer, one could watch the series of photographs in motion. Originally invented by Auguste and Louis Lumière in 1896, the Kinora developed into one of “the most successful of the ‘home movie’ machines” of the early 1900s. In this online event participants will be given a demonstration of both the recently manufactured Kinora viewer replica and the original Kinora viewer (ca.1907), which is part of C2DH’s media archaeological collection. The demonstrations will be combined with presentations highlighting the history of the Kinora as well as the process of making the replica in the Design Engineering Lab of the University of Luxembourg. The event is organized by Dr. Tim van der Heijden (C2DH), Ing. Claude Wolf (Department of Engineering) and Morgane Piet, BSc. (Department of Engineering): an interdisciplinary and hands-on collaboration between the C2DH and the Department of Engineering, University of Luxembourg within the framework of the project “Doing Experimental Media Archaeology: Practice and Theory (DEMA)”.

In Episode sieben der Sendereihe "100 Jahre Ostbelgien" behandeln die Historiker Andreas Fickers und Christoph Brüll den Ausbau der Autonomie für die deutschsprachigen Belgier im Zuge der verschiedenen Staatsreformen. Seit den 1970er Jahren bringt der flämisch-wallonische Konflikt stetig neue Staatsreformen hervor. Die Atempausen zwischen den Umbauphasen vom Einheitsstaat zum Bundesstaat wurden dabei immer kürzer. Die Deutschsprachige Gemeinschaft hatte und hat auf diese Entwicklungen keinen entscheidenden Einfluss. Sie erweitert ihre Befugnisse „im Windschatten“ der beiden großen Sprachgruppen. Eine Frage hat den Autonomieausbau dabei von Anfang an begleitet: Sind diese Befugnisübertragungen für ein Gebiet mit knapp 80.000 Einwohnern überhaupt verkraftbar? [less ▲]

Situé au coeur de l’Europe, le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg a été d’emblée un acteur clé de l’unification européenne. Dès 1952, sa capitale devient le premier lieu de travail provisoire de la Communauté Européenne du Charbon et de l’Acier (CECA) qui émerge après la Déclaration prononcée le 9 mai 1950 par Robert Schuman, ministre des Affaires étrangères de la France (qui naquit le 29 juin 1886 à Clausen, d’une mère luxembourgeoise et d’un père lorrain).[...]Si, depuis sa création la Cour de Justice de la CECA, puis des Communautés européennes et finalement de l’UE (CJUE) est basée au Luxembourg, c’est seulement à l’aube des années 1990 qu’elle élit domicile sur le plateau de Kirchberg, dans son nouveau Palais, dessiné par l’architecte français Dominique Perrault.

Migration flows of the 21st century lead to increasingly multilingual societies and entail rapidly evolving language practices. In sociolinguistics and education, there has been a growing interest in exploring these language practices. While most translanguaging studies carried out at school attend to the flexible use of two or more named languages, they only marginally acknowledge the pupils’ semiotic repertoires. Meaning making, however, occurs across and beyond languages. In this presentation, I will provide insight into the meaning-making processes of a newly arrived pupil in Luxembourg. As the instruction of French, German and Luxembourgish accounts for more than 40% of all curricular time, it can be difficult for newcomers to access the curriculum if they have to learn two or even three languages. This raises the question if and to what extent pupils draw on their resources to engage with the curriculum. My doctoral research tackles the following question: In what ways, to what extent and for what purposes do four multilingual fourth graders of different backgrounds deploy and develop their semiotic repertoires in interaction with their peers and teachers? To address that question, I visited two primary schools in Luxembourg where I observed, took field notes and video-recorded the pupils’ interactions as well as their use of multilingual and multimodal resources. A selection of recordings was discussed with the focal pupils in stimulated recall interviews. Observations, video-recordings and interviews were transcribed and analyzed with thematic analysis (Braun and Clarke 2013), multimodal interaction analysis (Norris 2004) and sociocultural discourse analysis (Mercer 2004) respectively. This presentation is based on the classroom interactions in one of the investigated schools and foregrounds one of the main findings: the pupils aligned their translanguaging practices to those of their peers. They adapted their language use to the interlocutor, orchestrated their semiotic resources in the same way as their peers and reproduced the teacher’s translanguaging practice. The study highlights the interconnectedness of classroom and individual practices and draws attention to the importance of resources other than linguistic ones in meaning-making processes at school.

Luxembourg has celebrated its sovereign’s birthday since the 18th century. When Grand Duchess Charlotte (23 January 1896–9 July 1985) ascended the throne in 1919, the date for these birthday celebrations became 23 January, and this date was declared a national holiday in 1947. But on 23 December 1961, a Grand Ducal Decree set the date of 23 June as Luxembourg’s National Day, when the country would officially celebrate the monarch’s birthday. National Day has continued to be celebrated on 23 June during the successive reigns of Grand Duke Jean (1964-2000), born on 5 January, and Grand Duke Henri (since 2000), born on 16 April. National Day is one of the symbols of the monarchy, together with the coat of arms and the anthem of the Grand Ducal House. [less ▲]

The Schengen Area is one of the pillars of the European project. But it has been affected by several difficulties: the serious consequences of the global economic and financial crisis (2008-2018), growing concerns over external migratory pressure and the question of enlargement, fears of social dumping and, since March 2020, the COVID-19 crisis. Identifying these obstacles is vital so that pragmatic solutions can be found without jeopardising the founding principle. [less ▲]
