This talk has two parts. It will first attempt to frame what a history of digital history might look like, by focusing on hybridity as a key characteristic of historical research, seen as some form of integrating newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, and mapped and qualified according to the main phases of historical research. My main argument here is that, in order to ground our current ‘digital’ practices and learn from past experiences and expertise, we need an answer to the question: what were, and are, the continuities and ruptures in the use and uptake of new technologies in historical research, and in the debates that accompanied them? The paper will then proceed to outline what groundwork is necessary to explore digital history’s forgotten roots: a basic overview of the field’s different spatio-temporal trajectories and the networks of computing historians in the pre-PC and early PC period. A key focal point for such a reconstruction are the DH conferences that took place in the 1960s and 1970s, either as singular events or strands of bigger conferences such as the International Congress of Historical Sciences in Moscow in 1970, and later those that were organised under the aegis of the Association for History and Computing (AHC, 1987-2001) and its national member organisations. By studying which scholars attended and where they came from, and by linking that to the topics and methods that were discussed, it will be possible to chart, over time, shifting geographical, topical and methodological developments. In the second part of my paper, I will provide the first results of a concrete case study which is part of this broader endeavour, namely a web archaeology of the old AHC website and H-NET Discussion List for History and Computing (now: H-Digital History).

As a relatively young and constantly emerging field, the Digital Humanities (DH) encompasses a large group of early career researchers with different backgrounds and diverse career paths. Digital Medieval Studies as a subfield of DH is characterised by various disciplines as well as a high number of international collaborations and is populated by scholars with different educational backgrounds: from scholars trained as medievalists who implemented digital components only during their postgrad studies to scholars who approached medieval studies through their technical skills. This round table discussion brings together early career scholars from this domain on the border between traditional humanities research and DH to discuss the challenges and opportunities of their diverse career paths.

The aim of the round table is to bring together specialists in digital history and experts who use digital tools in historical research and education. History as an academic field is undergoing major changes as a result of the transformative impact of digital technologies. These technologies affect the very nature of sources, the practice of data collection and processing, and also the way in which historical knowledge is acquired and disseminated. The task of defining “digital history” has given rise to much debate and discussion, but developing an understanding of the field and the wide-ranging potential for interaction between history and digital technologies can offer insights into the future development of historical research and education. Analysing the challenges and opportunities of this interdisciplinary union can inform and enrich the various cultures within digital history and beyond. A number of prominent speakers from different cultures of digital history and related disciplines will participate in the round table: Prof. Leonid Borodkin is a Professor of the History Faculty of Lomonosov Moscow State University, the Chair of the Department for Historical Information Science, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Science (Russia). Prof. Hannu Salmi is a Professor of Cultural History at the University of Turku and has been Academy Professor since 2017 (Finland). Prof. Peter Gautschi is a Professor of History Education, Head of the Lucerne Institute of History Education and Memory Cultures, UTE Lucerne (Switzerland). Prof. Valérie Schafer has been a Professor in Contemporary European History at the C²DH (Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History) at the University of Luxembourg since February 2018. Dr Mareike König is deputy director of the German Historical Institute in Paris. She is also director of its library and its digital humanities department. The round table will be organised and moderated by Nadezhda Povroznik (Center for Digital Humanities) and Frédéric Clavert (C²DH). [less ▲]

This research seminar aims to explicitly consider that research happens in context. This presentation proposes to address the topic of born-digital heritage and in particular of web archives in context. It aims to question the past, present and future paths of research based on the plethora of born-digital sources that developed from the mid-1990s. Analysis of web archives requires both taking into account the very shaping of these archives - e.g. web archiving in context - and placing research on these web archives in context, from the early studies of the 2000s which focused on the nature of web archives themselves and the methods for studying them to current research that takes them as sources for exploring digital cultures. Thus, the first two parts of our presentation, devoted respectively to the history of web archiving and of web archives in research, will explore the multiple contextual elements at work. These may be related to the Web itself and its evolution, to institutional policies, or to crawling and analysis tools, and understanding them is crucial for addressing the current and future challenges that will arise for researchers, whether they concern transnational approaches, ethical issues or a claim for enhanced contextualization. In conclusion we will broaden the question to digital humanities, and consider why web archive studies have remained relatively marginalised in digital humanities discourse. [less ▲]

For as long as new preservation technologies and computing machines have been developed, the question of their utility and uptake in historical research practices has been debated. Yet, the very fact that historical knowledge production has always been affected by new and emerging technologies is often forgotten. Similarly, the fact that key epistemological and methodological questions in what we now call ‘digital history’ were already debated decades ago by earlier generations of computing historians (analogue and digital) is often overlooked. There is a lack of transmission of accumulated knowledge from the past and it sometimes seems as if every new generation of historians rediscovers the promise of ‘digital history’, with all of its attending hopes, visions and ambitions for reinventing and reshaping historical research. In order to ground our current ‘digital’ practices and learn from past experiences and expertise, we need to contextualise and qualify what is new and what is not. In other words, we need an answer to the question: what were, and are, the continuities and ruptures in the use and uptake of new technologies in historical research, and in the debates that accompanied them? This paper is an attempt to frame what such a history of digital history might look like. It will do so by focusing on hybridity as a key characteristic of historical research. Hybridity, seen as some form of integrating newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, has a long history that predates the advent of computers. In my paper I will map and qualify that history according to the main phases of historical research: data & information gathering, processing, analysis and dissemination. Importantly, the speed, enthusiasm and rate of the uptake of new technologies in historical research differs and has differed significantly across these phases, in space as well as time. The paper will conclude by outlining what groundwork is necessary to explore digital history’s forgotten roots: a basic overview of the field’s different spatio-temporal trajectories and the networks of computing historians in the pre-PC and early PC period.

La dernière décennie du 20e siècle fut marquée par la mise en place d’un outil devenu indispensable aux historiens qui étudient l’hagiographie latine d’avant 1500 et qui s’intéressent à ses vecteurs manuscrits. Née de l’initiative visionnaire de Guy Philippart et de son équipe, ainsi que d’une collaboration avec la Société des Bollandistes, la base de données BHLms entendait rendre la Bibliotheca Hagiographica Latina et ses Supplementa, couplés à l’ensemble des catalogues de manuscrits hagiographiques bollandiens, instantanément interrogeables . Deux décennies plus tard, le projet est toujours vivace et s’apprête à connaître une seconde vie sur les serveurs de l’Institut de Recherche et d’Histoire des Textes . Cependant, si les informations collectées, présentées sous la forme d’une interface graphique, permettent à tout utilisateur d’obtenir rapidement des renseignements sur un texte donné (identifié par un n° BHL) et les manuscrits qui le contiennent, les données brutes de la base n’avaient à ce jour jamais été exploitées de façon globale. C’est une analyse de ce genre que nous proposons ici, par le biais de méthodes quantitatives, et notamment d’outils d’apprentissage automatique (machine learning) . Pour ce faire, nous embrassons deux approches, qui considèrent la base de données globales sous deux angles de vue différents. D’une part, nous enquêtons sur le degré de similarité entre les manuscrits sur la base de leur contenu, à l’aide de techniques de partitionnement (clustering). D’autre part, nous étudions les relations qu’entretiennent entre eux les saints par le truchement de méthodes de fouille de règles d’association (rule mining) et de théorie des graphes. Si le but final de notre analyse est bel et bien d’appliquer ces méthodes à l’ensemble de la base, nous aborderons dans un premier temps un cas d’étude concret, celui des manuscrits hagiographiques et des saints de l’ancien diocèse de Trèves. Les résultats de l’analyse quantitative peuvent ainsi être confrontés aux conclusions qualitatives obtenues par l’historiographie. [less ▲]

Social service providers in the Greater Region report that many children in need of special care and social assistance find themselves in cross-border situations. The legal regulations and practices for the care of children and adolescents can vary considerably from country to country. This can cause delays, breaks or deterioration in the quality of support and sometimes irreversibly worsen the child's situation. Depending on the situation, diagnoses and access to social, medical-social or legal services can change considerably. The EURQUA project deals with cross-border child protection and disability rights within a multinational perspective. [less ▲]

This talk deals with a question that is becoming increasingly important for historians who work with digitised cultural heritage: what are the politics of digitisation and what are its implications for historical research? Is the often-lauded democratising potential of digitisation also offset by risks, inherent in selection processes that might privilege the digitisation of heritage corresponding to existing national master narratives, the availability of funding and/or the priorities set by cultural policies and certain research agendas? How does transnational heritage fit into this picture when most digitisation projects are, in one way or another, nationally framed? What biases can digital archives introduce in our work and how does that differ from issues of bias and selection in the ‘paper’ archive? In discussing these questions, I will provide a couple of examples before emphasising the importance of more transparency in this regard and the need for guidelines about how digital archives are constituted. A key point to highlight is that professional historians can and should be more open to learn from the experience of digital archivists and librarians who are at the forefront of the digital turn in heritage work.

When six European nations embarked on the integration process in the wake of World War II, there was no blueprint. Of course, the founders had a vision and shared ideals, but European integration has left some citizens afraid of losing their identity and cultural heritage and an influx of immigrants has fuelled these fears. Building on this topic, this panel brings together researchers who focus on different aspects of what happens to history and heritage in multicultural European societies and particularly those in the border regions over time. New technologies are being used in innovated ways to communicate histories and memories to the public and with the goal to boost social and cultural participation. Since these former industrial regions in France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands and Germany have coped with similar challenges including the decline of the mining industry and changing borders, this panel aims to help us understand what opportunities lie in engaging local communities in research and how this can contribute to creating a sense of shared European heritage and identity.

When George Evans stated that every student can learn, just not on the same day, he had probably not in mind the despair of pupils trying to access an e-learning platform during a national lockdown period. With the COVID19 crisis, online learning became an everyday commodity almost overnight; however, not all schools were prepared to swiftly switch from in class to remote teaching. Concerns were raised with regard to data protection and cyber security, which in some cases led to the implementation of “home-made” solutions. Taking the example of the federalist state of Germany, where education is within the sole competence of the Länder, this paper will explore the functioning and technical implementation of a variety of e-learning platforms before data protection concerns are addressed. We will then explore whether the NIS Directive, which foresees similar security requirements as the GDPR, is applicable to the diverse models, and outline the consequences. In light of the acceleration of the revision of the NIS Directive due to the COVID-19 crisis, we take the example of learning platforms to outline the flaws of the 2016 Directive before we critically evaluate selected aspects of the NIS 2.0 proposal of December 2020.

Recent developments in DOLFINx allow for the block assembly of linear algebraic systems arising from discretisations of coupled partial differential equations. Each algebraic block represents a subproblem associated with a coupling of the unknown fields. Designing and implementing robust and scalable solution and preconditioning strategies for block-structured linear systems is an active area of research. In this contribution we show how DOLFINx can now exploit one of the most significant features of PETSc; the dynamic composition of the hierarchical solver and preconditioner options at runtime, see Brown et al [1]. The idea is inspired by the work of Kirby and Mitchell [2] that was originally implemented in the Firedrake Project. One of the most significant benefits of the approach is the possibility to construct advanced preconditioners that require structure beyond a purely algebraic problem description, eg the pressure-convection-diffusion (PCD) approximation of the Schur complement for the Navier–Stokes equations, see Silvester et al [3]. We illustrate the capabilities of our implementation on examples ranging from incompressible flow of a viscous fluid, through temperature-driven convection, to flows described by rate-type viscoelastic fluid models.

Presentation of the workshop : To mark the International Day of Women Rights, the University of Luxembourg is organizing an online workshop on Women in Computing. ICT is today one of the most gendered-divided fields. Gendered stereotypes suggesting that men are more interested in ICT are still active in shaping attitudes. However, this inequality has only started in the 80s. For instance, by 1943, in the USA, almost all people employed in computing were women. It is was common to believe that "programming requires lots of patience, persistence and a capacity for detail and those are traits that many girls have". The speakers of this workshop will shed light on the historical role of women in computing to help us understand how to improve gender inequality in ICT. [less ▲]

In this talk I will sketch the development of an EAP curriculum at the University of Luxembourg Language Centre that takes into account multilingualism, needs analysis, insights into EAP teaching and materials, discussions with stakeholders, and human resources. I will argue for an EAP curriculum approach that trains a set of core skills and enables discipline-specific genre and language learning through awareness-raising activities and corpus search tools. In this view, English for Specific Academic Purposes is not the teaching of disciplinary vocabulary. Instead, teachers use their EAP expertise to ascertain disciplinary needs, compose or evaluate materials, set tasks in line with disciplinary activities, and –importantly- provide the skills and tools to continue (discipline-specific) learning beyond the course. I will draw on examples of EAP course design from my own practice as well as on findings from my published research into EAP coursebook authenticity and multilingual course design. [less ▲]

«Ambitious Amateurs» vise à enquêter sur le soi-disant goût de masse à travers le prisme de la pratique culturelle participative du tournage dans les longues années 1960. Les cinéastes étaient des consommateurs d'un média qu'ils co-créaient eux-mêmes. Ils produisaient pour un cercle de pairs, respectivement pour obtenir la reconnaissance des professionnels. La forme esthétique de ces films et genres, l'excès de sens, ainsi que les idéaux politiques moraux représentent les axes centraux de l'analyse. En outre, les relations entre les membres du club et leurs activités dans les associations faîtières nationales ainsi que les contextes de rencontres transnationales (par exemple l'UNICA, fondée en 1937) doivent être davantage observés. Celui-ci sera exécuté sur les exemples de clubs et de lieux sélectionnés au Luxembourg, en Belgique, en France et en Allemagne. Outre la recherche d'archives et l'histoire orale, les documents cinématographiques eux-mêmes sont la pièce maîtresse de l'analyse. Le sujet est particulièrement pertinent pour la culture générale et l'histoire des médias, en raison de l'évolution historique des tendances à la censure et à l'autocensure concernant la permissivité sexuelle, le militantisme politique ou les déclarations religieuses dans les années 1960. Celles-ci seront liées à la question de l'américanisation, respectivement du rejet de cette dernière dans le discours des créateurs de films européens et de la presse d'actualité. La comparaison internationale facilitera en outre l'affichage des spécificités nationales et des diverses temporalités au sein de l'Europe (occidentale). Simultanément, une possibilité de concevoir certains développements transnationaux potentiels - également au-delà du «rideau de fer» - sera générée. [less ▲]

The European Communities (founded in 1951) with the ECSC and then the European Union started out as an exclusively west European enterprise. The guarantee of the “rule of law” was one of the criteria for accession to the European Union which the EU defined at the Copenhagen European Council in 1993, together with stability of institutions guaranteeing democracy, human rights, and respect for and protection of minorities. the existence of a functioning market economy as well as the capacity to cope with competitive pressure and market forces within the Union. Membership presupposes the candidate's ability to take on the obligations of membership including adherence to the aims of political, economic and monetary union. In their Constitutions today, all the countries of Central and East Europe confess to the “rule of law” as either a fundamental prerequisite or one of the highest values/a fundamental value of the constitutional order as stated (by Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Poland), or by declaring their country operates under or is based on the “rule of law” as stated (by the Baltic countries, Hungary), or that it is a “law-governed state” as stated by (Bulgaria; Romania). In doing so, the countries confess to the “rule of law” at least in its formalistic understanding.The crucial question is what the “rule of law” as referred to by the EU in the Copenhagen Criteria and by the Constitutions of the countries of Central and Eastern Europe effectively means. What is the state practice? [less ▲]

Methodik: Die Lehrveranstaktung findet in Form einer interaktiven Vorlesung mit Semianrinhalten statt. Studierende erhalten Anregungen zur Selbstreflexion/-erfahrung und kritischen Auseinandersetzung mit Primär- und Sekundärliteratur zu Jacues Lacan und der strukturalen Psychoanalyse. Das Seminar setzt eine Offenheit zur Selbsterfahrung voraus und findet im geschützten Rahmen statt. Die vorbereitende Lektüre von Texten werden vorausgesetzt. Inhalt: Der große Andere ist ein Begriff der Lacan'schen Psychoanalyse. Der große Andere („A“) ist im Unterschied zum „kleinen anderen“ (Objekt klein a) ein Konzept der Alterität und Andersheit. Der große Andere ist das Andere des Subjekts, das Nicht-Ich, das dieses Subjekt jedoch immer schon strukturiert und ausrichtet. So muss „der Andere als der Ort [verstanden werden], an dem das Ich, das spricht, sich konstituiert“ (Lacan: Seminar III, S. 322). Der große Andere ist die symbolische Ordnung der Sprache, die das Subjekt benutzt, um selbst sprechen zu können und von der es sich seine Stimme leiht: „Was jedes Subjekt zuerst in seinem Leben antrifft, sind Signifikanten“ (Widmer, Subversion des Begehrens S. 43). Das Modell, das hinter dieser Konzeption von Sprache steht, ist die strukturalistische Zeichen-Theorie Ferdinand de Saussures mit ihren Begriffen Signifikant und Signifikat. Die erste Verkörperung des großen Anderen ist die Hauptbezugsperson des Kindes ( die Mutter"); sie ist ein „großer anderer Wille“, der spricht und der das Kind in die Ordnung der Sprache und des Sozialen einführt. Noch mehr gilt dies für den Vater, der im Ödipuskomplex die verbietende Rolle des Gesetzes einnimmt (Inzesttabu, Kastrationsdrohung), das Kind aus dem ödipalen Begehren herausdrängt und zur außerfamiliären, sozialen Welt hin orientiert. In der Gesellschaft gilt das Gesetz des Symbolischen, d. h. das Gesetz der Sprache, der sozialen Normen und des ökonomischen Tauschs. Der große Andere ist in diesem Sinne gleichzusetzen mit der Ordnung der Sprache, des Diskurses, der staatlichen Herrschaft und der Ökonomie sowie dem „Gesetz des Vaters“ („Name-des-Vaters“). Sie bilden gleichermaßen eine symbolische Herrschaftsordnung, die das Subjekt unterwirft (sub-jectum = Unterworfenes) und strukturiert. Eine weitere Bedeutung des Begriffs des „großen Anderen“ bei Lacan ist, dass dieser Andere nicht nur das Symbolische selbst ist, sondern zugleich ein Ort, der dieses Symbolische erst legitimiert. Er ist in diesem Sinne ein „Herrensignifikant“, d. h. ein übergeordneter Signifikant, der am Ende jeder Signifikantenkette steht und der diese erst organisiert und strukturiert. Als Herrensignifikant existiert der große Andere nur als sein eigener Effekt, indem er das Symbolische strukturiert innerhalb eines Feldes, in dem er selbst nicht beinhaltet ist, als dessen Garant und Sinnstiftung er jedoch funktioniert (die klassische Form eines großen Anderen ist Gott.)

Processing high-throughput data-streams has become a major challenge in areas such as real-time event monitoring, complex dataflow processing, and big data analytics. While there has been tremendous progress in distributed stream processing systems in the past few years, the high-throughput and low-latency (a.k.a. high sustainable-throughput) requirement of modern applications is pushing the limits of traditional data processing infrastructures. This paper introduces a new distributed stream data processing engine (DSPE), called “Asynchronous Iterative Routing” or simply AIR, which implements a light-weight, dynamic sharding protocol. AIR expedites a direct and asynchronous communication among all the worker nodes via multiple Message Passing Interface (MPI) communication channels and thereby completely avoids any additional communication overhead with a dedicated master node. With its unique design, AIR scales out to clusters consisting of up to 8 nodes and 224 cores, performing much better than existing DSPEs, and it performs up to 15 times better than Spark and Flink in terms of sustainable-throughput.

In this PhD outline, I will present highlights from my PhD research project on mathematical modelling with real-world information in the classroom, remote teaching and outdoor learning in Luxemburg. Through design-based explanatory studies, I investigated different technology enhanced tasks, learning and teaching settings that could likely engage students in understanding and transferring mathematical modelling to their living environments. The selected design-based research methodology and its characteristics, allowed to adapt task designs, settings and methods during my PhD research project. Hence, firstly, I investigated process skills learning (e.g.: mathematical modelling) with an automated tutoring system (the educational technology software MathemaTIC) within an international project. Although findings were promising, I redesigned my interventions to connect further students mathematical modelling learning to real-world information. Thus, secondly, I performed mathematical modelling tasks with augmented reality on real-world objects in remote teaching and in special needs educations. Utilising findings of these studies and a redesign of the intervention based on outdoor mathematical trails, thirdly, I undertook my final study. In pre-service teacher higher education, I explored outdoor mathematical modelling with an integrated STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) approach. With the aim of such holistic approach, I collected data on education-related perceptions from different stakeholders of elementary school education (students, parents, in-service, and pre service teachers) and developed conceptual frameworks on task creation, mathematical modelling, and stakeholders' roles. In my PhD research project, I aspired to contribute and explain how in-class learning and teaching could be connected and transferred to mathematical modelling within students living environments. Although there are many crucial moments, method choices and findings within these studies, in this report, I will offer highlights of my PhD work and results. [less ▲]

Lorsque les pratiques multilingues en contexte professionnel international sont encadrées par des politiques linguistiques, elles donnent un point d’ancrage pour mesurer les oscillations entre le « prescrit » et l’«existant ». La caractérisation des pratiques multilingues d’une entreprise aéronautique européenne et de l’UNESCO demande de placer notre recherche à la croisée des champs de la linguistique, de la didactique des langues, de la sociologie, et de la psychologie sociale et cognitive. Nous allons présenter les résultats d’analyse des besoins déclarés par les salariés eux-mêmes, des interactions enregistrées en réunions et aussi des bilans d’entretiens. Ces deux terrains de recherche ont des caractéristiques linguistiques similaires : l’utilisation de l’anglais comme langue véhiculaire, la localisation d’un site à Hambourg en Allemagne, leurs sièges sociaux respectifs en France, des communications régulières avec des sites en zone hispanophone, ainsi que l’offre de cours d’anglais, de français, d’allemand et d’espagnol auprès de leurs employés. La polyphonie des discours sur les pratiques multilingues en entreprise montre les tensions existantes entre le choix de l’usage de l’anglais comme lingua franca et celui du français, de l’allemand et de l’espagnol qui ouvre différents « univers du discours » (Charolles 1997). A partir de la question de cadrage, envisagé au plan linguistique comme au plan sociologique, nous essayons d’établir le lien entre posture professionnelle et pratiques langagières. Il semblerait que les faits de pluri-compétences, de pluri-linguisme, de multi-linguisme et de pluri-activités donnent matière à repenser nos méthodologies d’enseignement des langues. Par ailleurs. La relation d’aide (Amério 1991, Lejot 2014) entre les employés favorise le développement des compétences linguistiques dans la langue cible. Notre objectif est ici de faire un lien entre les besoins linguistiques et culturels identifiés en milieu professionnel et le développement des compétences multilingues en milieu universitaire. La personne bilingue n’est pas une somme de deux personnes monolingues (Grosjean 1989), et au même titre, l’enseignement plurilingue n’est pas une somme d’enseignements monolingues au sein d’une même formation en langues appliquées. Des recherches en linguistiques comparatistes (Huemer, Lejot, Deroey 2019) et des méthodes pédagogiques basées sur l’autonomie de l’étudiant ouvrent des perspectives à explorer ou à approfondir.

The highly linguistically and culturally diverse reality of Luxembourg and its school system pose a great challenge to students, families, and teachers alike. This reality tends to produce one of the largest differences in reading performance between Luxembourgish and language minority children compared to other countries (PISA, 2019), which creates inequalities in students’ academic trajectory. Translanguaging as a pedagogy has been established to overcome these inequalities by disrupting language hierarchies and giving language minority children a space and voice to learn and prosper (García, 2019). To address the inequalities and help implement a translanguaging pedagogy in preschool, our project : (1) offered a professional development course in translanguaging to 40 teachers, (2) involves children’s parents to foster home-school collaboration through questionnaires and interviews, and (3) cultivates children’s linguistic, cognitive, and socio-emotional engagement in the classroom through linguistic tests and video observations. We also used focus groups and questionnaires at the beginning and the end of the course. The 18-hour course in Translanguaging (June to December 2019) aimed to challenge the teachers’ perception about multilingualism and equality in their classroom. Through the preliminary results of the focus groups, questionnaires and field notes, we were able to observe some positive changes in the teachers’ attitudes and beliefs about their language minority children such as realizing that language is a tool of communication. Teachers were also more positive about home-school collaboration. However, despite our continuous creative efforts, some teachers still maintained their traditional monolingual stance and conviction of parents’ lack of education and interest. Most of the teachers did, however, not completely overcome a monolingual bias and this remains our main focus in the remaining points and follow-ups of our project. References García, O. (2019).

At the dawn of Reformation and the religious tensions that spread across Europe in the 16th century, the German city of Trier was the theatre of a particular religious craze considered a peak in the development of personal piety. During his second stay in the Mosellan city in 1512, emperor Maximilian of Habsburg ordered the clergy to excavate the tunica Christi, a relic that had remained buried under the main altar of the eastern choir of the cathedral since the end of the 12th century. This inventio was followed by a series of ostensiones to show the Holy Tunic to the mass of people gathered in front of the cathedral. Being located on the pilgrimage route to Aachen and Cologne, the churches of Trier took advantage of the influx of pilgrims to promote their own places of worship. A real “flood of relics” (“Heiltumsflut”) fell upon the city with all the drifts that went with it such as the digging of bones and a massive consumption of indulgence letters, a lucrative activity heavily criticized by Martin Luther a few years later. In this context, a whole literature related to these ostensiones reliquiarum as well as to the history of the city and of its churches emerged (so-called Heiltumsschriften), the most notorious example being Johannes Enen’s “Medulla Gestorum Trevirensium”, a vernacular treaty published in 1514, with a second edition in 1515. Two years later, in 1517, a Latin version of the above-mentioned text was released (“Epitome alias medulla Gestorum Trevirorum”). Its author was Johannes Scheckmann, a monk from the Benedictine abbey of St Maximin who had already published four other prints and is believed to be behind a series of hagiographic texts preserved in manuscript form only. Traditionally, Heilthumsbücher can be defined as printed brochures containing textual and visual information necessary for pilgrims to follow the exhibition ceremony of relics in a particular church. Yet, Scheckmann’s publications intrigue by their prosaic developments that lay far beyond the literary limits of their counterparts. Acting as a true hagiographer, the monk of Saint-Maximin shaped a new form of compendium by reemploying a classical hagiographical repertory, including one of the two only preserved medieval treaties about the cult of the saints and the worship of their relics: Thiofrid of Echternach’s Flores Epytaphii Sanctorum (ca. 1100). My paper’s proposal aims to explore to which extend Scheckmann’s work takes place in the context of an increased competition between sanctuaries to attract pilgrims; it also analysis the intended message of his writings in consideration with the past literature about the local saints.

Alors que l’an dernier étaient célébrés les 50 ans du réseau ARPANET et les 30 ans du World Wide Web, ces anniversaires étaient l’occasion de revenir largement sur les fondements du « réseau des réseaux ».

In the past decade, we have witnessed a shift from technological determinism to more attention to the methodological and epistemological changes in historical research which the digital turn has brought about. This talk will focus on how the practice of doing history has changed in the digital age against the background of broader historical developments in the so-called digital humanities. I will argue that, in many ways, hybridity, seen at its most basic level as the integration of 'traditional' and 'digital' approaches, is the new normal for most historians. However, when more broadly conceptualised as the integration of newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, it also becomes clear that hybridity has a long and often unacknowledged history that predates the advent of computers – analog and digital. Against this backdrop, the first part of my talk traces this unacknowledged history and the debates accompanying the (wo)man-machine encounter in the historical research process more generally. As I will argue, this encounter needs to be qualified according to its most elementary phases (data & information gathering, processing, analysis, and dissemination). Crucially, the speed, enthusiasm, and rate of the uptake of new technologies differs, and has always differed, significantly across these phases. In the second half of the talk, I will then offer a concrete example of these insights by using my research on the diaries of Anne Frank as a case study and will demonstrate the hybrid nature of today's historical research process, both as a reality and potentiality. Exploring the longue durée of the impact of new technologies on the practice of history is not to deny the specificity of the current moment but helps us to see how 'digital' has now come to affect the entire historical profession in ways unseen before. Indeed, technology has become inescapable, even if many historians refuse to acknowledge the fact and remain reluctant to embrace it. Yet, we can only truly ground our current 'digital' practices, and learn from past experiences and expertise, by contextualising and qualifying what is new and what is not. The real challenge for our profession now is to take a mental leap forward and be consciously hybrid, to acknowledge that 'digital' is not merely complementary but integral to the practice of doing history, and purposely reflect its implications.

Numerous scholars advocate for translanguaging pedagogies to increase participation and learning opportunities for all students, in particular students with a migration background (Rosiers, Van Lancker, & Delarue, 2018). Conversely, critics argue that translanguaging can contribute to reiterate unequal participation dynamics and question the equitable access to curricular resources (Hamman, 2018). While most qualitative studies draw on observations of classroom practices of the teachers and/or the students, only few consider the students’ perspectives on these practices. The present paper aims to address this issue. While my doctoral project explores the translanguaging practices of four fourth-graders of different backgrounds and their development over time, this paper investigates their perspectives on translanguaging. From January to December 2018, I observed the students’ interactions with their peers and teachers in Years 4 and 5 and identified and recorded key events. Subsequently, selected events were shown to and discussed with the students. Findings based on recordings from discussions and stimulated recall interviews revealed, first, that translanguaging was the default mode of communication of all four students and was perceived as a common practice. Second, the newcomers reported that they translanguaged to communicate quicker and that translanguaging was particularly frequent in students who were not yet proficient language users. Similarly, students with more experience in the education system perceived translanguaging as an inferior practice and indicated using their home language as a scaffold with other students, but not with their teachers. The students’ self-monitoring connects to the classroom practices. [less ▲]
