The Jean Monnet Chair in History of European Integration and its
Research Programme ‘Digital Humanities Luxembourg’ — DIHULUX (research
unit Identités-Politiques-Sociétés-Espaces [IPSE]), together with the
Centre Virtuel de la Connaissance sur l’Europe (CVCE), are pleased to
launch the call for papers for the DHLU Symposium 2012. This Symposium
follows the DHLU Symposium 2009, also organised in Luxembourg by these
two institutions on the topic of ‘Contemporary history in the digital
age’. This second edition aims to examine the use of websites as
sources for research in the humanities and social sciences, especially
encouraging an analysis of this heuristic question in the field of
European integration studies (EIS). The Symposium will address both
methodological aspects and the theoretical and institutional
implications of the public dissemination of research results, focusing
on digitised and online published sources as well as on websites
themselves, which will be analysed as born digital sources. The
potential of this innovative research approach will also be explored
and emphasised. The Symposium will be structured around the following
research clusters, but may also include other related approaches: > 1.
Holding the mirror

This first cluster addresses the challenges and potentialities of
online archives offering primary sources for research purposes. It
will look into the modes of presentation and
theoretical-methodological debates concerning uses, approaches and
interconnections of such sources. > 2. The critical added value

This cluster focuses on online secondary sources and enhanced
publications, with a special emphasis in digital research corpora. It
aims at examining ongoing developments in the intertwining modes
between available primary sources and resulting secondary sources
centred on the priority of critically commenting and enriching
contents as a scientific asset. > 3. (Self-)reflections and the
creative observer

This cluster will take a step beyond textual sources to examine the
unique features of audiovisual sources and hence of new forms of
creation and re-creation of historical memories. A special section
within this cluster will be dedicated to innovative digital oral
history sources and projects. > 4. Institutional and dissemination
aspects: digital public history

This cluster will focus on forms of institutionalisation of digital
research practices, results and dissemination strategies by means of
collaborative projects in the humanities and social sciences targeted
towards a wide variety of audiences. > 5. Web history and digital
history methods for the use of websites as sources

Web history constitutes a new scientific field centred on the
historical study of websites for research purposes, thus paving the
way for increasingly interdisciplinary trends in the humanities and
social sciences. This session will offer Web historians the
opportunity to share their experiences concerning their ongoing
results and chosen methods. >> Participation

We welcome papers focusing on digital humanities and social sciences
from researchers and scholars at all stages of their careers. Papers
examining cases related to European integration studies (EIS) are
especially encouraged. Abstracts (max. 500 words), submitted together
with a short CV (max. 250 words) and a list of publications, can be
written in English or French and should be sent to the following
contact email address, which can also be used for any enquiries:
