Ältere Erwachsene galten ungeachtet der großen Heterogenität dieser Altersgruppe während der COVID-19-Pandemie als Risikogruppe. Während eine Reduzierung der persönlichen Kontakte vor allem in den ersten Monaten der Pandemie notwendig war, um das Virus einzudämmen und vulnerable Personen vor Ansteckung zu schützen, wurden schnell Bedenken hinsichtlich der sekundären Auswirkungen dieser Maßnahmen auf das subjektive Wohlbefinden geäußert. Der vorliegende Beitrag befasst sich damit, wie ältere Erwachsene die COVID-19 Pandemie und die damit verbundenen Einschränkungen selbst erlebten. Dabei wird Bezug auf zwei Studien genommen, die 2020 in Luxemburg durchgeführt wurden – CRISIS und PAN-VAL. Ziel des vom FNR finanzierten CRISIS-Projekts war es, herauszufinden, wie ältere Erwachsene (60+) in Luxemburg die Sicherheitsmaßnahmen und deren Kommunikation an die Öffentlichkeit während der ersten Monate der Pandemie erlebten. Dabei wurden Daten von unabhängig lebenden Personen zu zwei Messzeitpunkten (N = 611 im Juni und N = 523 im Oktober 2020) erhoben sowie N = 84 Personen in Altersheimen befragt. Die vom Ministerium für Familie und Integration geförderte Studie PAN-VAL befasste sich mit dem aktiven Altern von Luxemburgern und Nicht-Luxemburgern. Im Dezember 2020 wurden N = 1000 in Luxemburg lebende Personen ab 50 Jahre befragt, wobei neben der Lebenszufriedenheit, dem sozialen Eingebundensein und gemeinschaftlichen Aktivitäten auch das Erleben von Einsamkeit vor und seit der Corona-Pandemie erfasst wurde. Die vorliegenden Analysen konzentrieren sich auf die selbstberichtete Resilienz, Einsamkeitserleben und subjektives Wohlbefinden älterer Menschen sowie auf deren Bedingungsfaktoren während der Pandemie.

Genome-Wide Association Studies (GWAS) identify the genomic variations that are statistically associated with a particular phenotype (e.g., a disease). GWAS results, i.e., statistics, benefit research and personalized medicine. The confidence in GWAS increases with the number of genomesanalyzed, which encourages federated computations where biocenters periodically include newly sequenced genomes. However, for legal and economical reasons, this collaboration can only happen if a release of GWAS results never jeopardizes the genomic privacy of data donors, if biocenters retain ownership and cannot learn each others’ data. Furthermore, given the reduced cost of sequencing DNA nowadays, there is now a need to update GWAS results in a dynamic manner, while enabling donors to withdraw consent at any time. Therefore, two challenges need to be simultaneously addressed to enable federated and dynamic GWAS: (i) the computation of GWAS statistics must rely on secure and privacy-preserving methods; and (ii) GWAS results that are publicly released should not allow any form of privacy attack. In this talk, we will introduce the problem we consider in more detail and present DyPS, the framework we have designed and recently presented at the Privacy Enhancing Technologies Symposium (PETS). We refer the reader to the full paper1 for the details we cannot cover in this short version. [less ▲]

This roundtable, which is organized by the WARCnet network and chaired by Valérie Schafer (C2DH, University of Luxembourg), aims to shed light on the issues, challenges, values and limits of web archiving during the COVID crisis. It will combine analysis by web archivists and scholars and entwine analysis of web archiving practices and preserved web content, in order to address several key issues related to the conference, such as the “silences” and “noises” of these archives. The first part of the roundtable will focus on web archives collections that have been created during the COVID-19 crisis by many institutions throughout Europe. Friedel Geeraert (The State Archives of Belgium and the Royal Library of Belgium) will provide a short comparative overview of the strategies of web archiving institutions in Europe, that the team documented through an oral history campaign, while Nicola Bingham (The British Library, UK) will offer more precise overviews of the collections that were gathered respectively by the UK Web Archive and the IIPC (International Internet Preservation Consortium). Claude Mussou (Ina THEQUE, France) will explore the archiving of Twitter at the Institut national de l’audiovisuel (France). Niels Brügger (Aarhus University, Denmark) and Jane Winters (SAS, University of London) will then discuss memories and heritage of the COVID-crisis through the lens of these web archives. Finally the last part will focus on research approaches, notably close and distant reading, and the collective and individual traces, social and political expressions at stake in these web archives: Valérie Schafer will comment on the distant reading approach within these archives. Sophie Gebeil (Aix-Marseille University, France) will underline issues related to “carers” and social struggles. Valérie Schafer will also briefly mention the gendered approach of the COVID crisis that the working group is currently conducting. This roundtable will be followed by a discussion with the audience in order to deepen the topics that are at the core of the conference, whether it be loss, preservation, the political “we”, feelings, etc. [less ▲]

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.

Dans de remarquables travaux consacrés à l’œuvre complète d’Andreï Makine / Gabriel Osmonde (2019) qui l’ont, entre autres, amenée à forger le concept inédit de transbiographie dans une approche cognitive de la littérature, Diana Mistreanu montre de manière convaincante l’influence déterminante que peut avoir un trauma vécu par un auteur sur le processus de sa propre écriture. Il m’est apparu nettement qu’un parallèle pouvait être établi entre ce qui fonde l’œuvre d’Andreï Makine / Gabriel Osmonde et ce qui homogénéise celle de Jean Rouaud, lui aussi victime d’un profond trauma qui ne cesse de s’actualiser sous forme d’avatars, au cours de trente années d’écriture. D’un point de vue générique, les deux premiers cycles de création littéraire roualdienne sont inclassables : ils ne sont ni autobiographiques, ni autofictionnels, quoiqu’ils donnent à voir des indices qui permettraient de rattacher les textes de la période 1990-2010 à ces deux catégories. Ils faut attendre 2014 et le volume 3 de La Vie poétique pour voir apparaître le terme autobiographie dans la phrase incipit d’Un peu la guerre. Or l’étude des œuvres antérieures en relation avec le troisième cycle d’écriture me pousse à remettre en cause la qualification d’autobiographie au sens (devenu classique) du terme tel que l’explicite Lejeune. Par conséquent, mon analyse de fondera sur une approche cognitive, étayée notamment par les travaux de Martin Conway et ceux de Romain Coutelle, afin de tenter de comprendre de quelle manière a pu se constituer la mémoire autobiographique de Jean Rouaud.

Dans le contexte des nouvelles relations internationales forgées par la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le Grand-Duché de Luxembourg s’affirme comme un acteur de marque du multilatéralisme, en tant que membre fondateur de la plupart des grandes institutions internationales - l’Organisation des Nations unies (1945), l’Organisation du traité de l’Atlantique du Nord (1949), le Conseil de l’Europe (1949),- ainsi que de l’intégration européenne, à commencer par la Communauté européenne du Charbon et de l’Acier (1951), dont les premières institutions sont accueillies à Luxembourg. L’adhésion aux systèmes d’alliances atlantique et européennes s’accompagne d’une nouvelle politique extérieure luxembourgeoise sous l’impulsion du légendaire ministre des Affaires étrangères Joseph Bech (1887-1975). Après la Libération, il porte une attention particulière à l’organisation institutionnelle du ministère des Affaires étrangères, à la professionnalisation de la diplomatie nationale et à la formation d’un corps diplomatique d’excellence, pour représenter le pays dans le monde, pour promouvoir ses valeurs et pour défendre ses intérêts à travers la coopération internationale bi- et multilatérale.

Despite its small size in terms of geography (2,586km2) and population (626,100 people on 1 January 2020), Luxembourg has an open, dynamic, innovative economy that is one of the most successful at international level – in 2019 its GDP per capita was 261% the European average and its growth rate was the third highest of the EU’s then 28 Member States – and also one of the least affected by the COVID-19 crisis. This can be explained by its sector-based structure, in which activities and services related to the financial centre, together with information and communication technologies, transport and non-market services, play a key role; by the existence of a highly qualified, multilingual, mobile (cross-border) workforce; and also by the proactive economic policy pursued by the country’s authorities throughout its history. Looking back, we can see that Luxembourg has gone through several transitions and dealt with a number of serious crises. Following on from the predominantly rural economy of the 19th century, the first half of the 20th century was characterised by an industrial economy based on the iron and steel industry and the latter part of the century by a service-based economy centred around the financial centre, ultimately leading to the emergence of an information and knowledge economy which is gradually taking shape in the 21st century.

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.

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 ▲]

Préfigurée par la Déclaration que Robert Schuman prononce le 9 mai 1950, la Communauté européenne du Charbon et de l’Acier (CECA) devient réalité le 18 avril 1951, lorsque les représentants de six États fondateurs – Allemagne, Belgique, France, Italie, Luxembourg et Pays-Bas – concluent, pour une durée de 50 ans, le traité de Paris. L’architecture institutionnelle de cette première communauté européenne dessine l’actuel équilibre des pouvoirs de l’Union européenne reposant sur: la Haute Autorité (la Commission européenne) ; le Conseil spécial de ministres; l’Assemblée commune (le Parlement européen); la Cour de justice – indépendante. En juillet 1952, Luxembourg-ville est choisie comme lieu de travail provisoire de la CECA. Dès le 10 août 1952, la Haute Autorité s’installe dans le bâtiment qui abrite ac-tuellement la Spuerkeess. Le 10 décembre, la Cour de justice de la CECA tient sa séance d’ouverture solennelle au Cercle Municipal, à la place d’Armes. Luxembourg-ville devient siège européen aux côtés de Strasbourg (qui accueille l’Assemblée commune) et de Bruxelles, qui s’y rajoute en 1958, après la création de la Communauté économique européenne et l’Euratom. La fusion des exécutifs com-munautaires (1965) confirme Luxembourg comme siège judiciaire et financier européen. Ce n’est qu’en 1992 que le Conseil européen d’Édimbourg consacre la tripolarité Luxembourg – Bruxelles – Strasbourg comme « capitales permanentes de l’Union européenne. [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.

In spite of their fondamental geopolitical differences and their contrasting trajectories through the history, modern-day Romania and Luxembourg have always enjoyed a unique relationship, which started in the 12th century, when a number of Siebenbürger Sachsen could migrate eastwards (in Transylvania). A second migratory movement occurs in the 18th century when inhabitants of the then Duchy of Luxembourg set off towards the Danubian plains (the Banat of Timisoara), establishing themselves as settlers on this land previously conquered by the Habsburgs from the Turks and today part of Romania. Bilateral diplomatic relations between Romania and Luxembourg were first established on 8 December 1920, and in 1966 their respective diplomatic representations were elevated to the rank of embassy. After the fall of the communist regime, the democratic government of Romania appointed, in 1990, its first resident ambassador in Luxembourg. During its gradual integration into the Euro-Atlantic structures (EU, NATO), Romania and Luxembourg increase their synergies in a bi- and multilateral international framework. Moreover, on 5 April 2005, Romania (and Bulgaria) signed the EU accession treaty in Luxembourg, under the Luxembourg Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Taking into account these elements, and also the fact that Romania and Luxembourg (both, independent and sovereign nation-states) are subjects of the international relations and diplomacy process, this lecture aims to present a insightful foray into a long-centuries common history, by highlighting moments, events and key-figures on both-sides, by means of several undisclosed and unpublished archival documents provided courtesy of the Diplomatic Archives of Romania. (A brief presentation of definitions, concepts and notions specific to the international relations and diplomacy field will ensure a better understanding of the subject). [less ▲]

Following a joint work with Sara Arias-de-Reyna and François Legrand, we present a new kind of families of modular forms. They come from representations of the absolute Galois group of rational function fields over Q. As a motivation and illustration, we discuss in some details one example: an infinite Galois family of Katz modular forms of weight one in characteristic 7, all members of which are non-liftable. This may be surprising because non-liftability is a feature that one might expect to occur only occasionally. [less ▲]

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 ▲]
