On December 7, 2018, at 6.30 pm, Dr. Sandra Camarda will deliver a lecture "
Remembering the Great War in Luxembourg:
Engaging Multiple Audiences Through Public History Digital Projects".
Overwritten by the dramatic events of the Second World War, the complex and ambiguous history of Luxembourg during WW1 has suffered from a general indifference and disregard from both historians and local population.
The initiatives for the Great War centennial have offered an unprecedented chance to re-engage with this period both at an academic and at a political level. Born as a collaboration between the University of Luxembourg and the Ministry of State, the digital exhibition project Éischte Weltkrich: Remembering the Great War in Luxembourg, addresses multiple audiences in the rediscovery of an era still largely unexplored and neglected.

The lecture is a part of International Seminar "Digital History Project. What Makes It Work" and "Digital History Seminars" of the Center for Urban History of East and Central Europe as supported by the University of St. Gallen (Switzerland).
