Sandra Camarda (Centre for Contemporary and Digital History, Luxembourg) and Martine Vermandere (Amsab-ISG, Ghent)
In this talk you will hear first-hand from Sandra Camarda, curator of the project Éischte Weltkrich: Remembering the Great War in Luxembourg (https://ww1.lu), on the process of developing a digital exhibition. The digital platform was developed by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH), with the objective of addressing a neglected and understudied period in the history of the Grand Duchy. It brings together the collections and expertise of all the major Luxembourgish museums, archives and cultural institutions, creating a long-term digital resource.
The CLARIAH-VL Open Humanities Service Infrastructure has been funded for at least two years by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO). It is being developed by an interdisciplinary team of researchers, digital humanities experts and infrastructural specialists, from the universities of Ghent, Antwerpen, Leuven and Brussels, together with linguists from the Dutch Language Institution (INT). It will offer a unique combination of high-quality and user-friendly tools and resources that can be embedded into the everyday workflows of humanities researchers.
In the context of GhentCDH's Transnational Intellectual Collaboration (TIC) project, Thomas D’haeninck defended his doctoral dissertation on 16th October in the Ghent University conference centre, 'Het Pand'. Thomas studied the “culture of international congresses” via a relational and actor-centred approach by applying Social Network Analysis (SNA) techniques to a large sample of congress attendees.
