Mission statement

An experimental space for exploring new ways of research and teaching history in the digital age.

Welcome to the Digital History LAB (DH-LAB) of the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) and the Institute for History / University of Luxembourg. The DH-Lab is designed as an experimental space for exploring new ways of doing historical research and teaching in the digital age. It is equipped with a cutting-edge digital infrastructure (see Research Facilities) and fully integrated into the interdisciplinary laboratory environment of FLSHASE (with its Media and Experimental Lab, the GIS Lab, the Usability Laboratory). Mission As a trading zone for the negotiation of new knowledge, the DH-LAB promotes a hands-on approach to new digital tools and technologies in the field of history. In training students and researchers in using new methods of doing historical research with digital datasets and in exploring new forms of historical storytelling online, the DH-Lab aims to be a place of critical reflection on both the epistemological and methodological challenges of doing history in the age of big data and digital meta-sources. We want this place and blog to turn into a vivid and creative place for sharing ideas and practices in our field and thereby stimulate a self-reflexive approach in hybrid practice of history today. If you are interested in engaging in this on-going debate on digital hermeneutics in the field of history, please share your thoughts, ideas, and experiences with us!
