Mission

The interdisciplinary centre aims to perform as a key player in three interrelated fields of interest:

  1. as a national platform for the critical discussion and academic study of questions related to the contemporary history of Luxembourg from transnational perspective;
  2. as an international hub for reflection on the methodological and epistemological challenges of history in the digital age;
  3. as a local mediator in the promotion of multimodal and digital literacy in academic research and teaching at the University of Luxembourg.

The centre therefore has a particular focus on the use of digital methods and tools for historical research and serves as a catalyst for innovative and creative scholarship and new forms of public dissemination and societal engagement with history in Luxembourg.
