C²DH 5th anniversary celebration

The first five years of its existence were rich in projects, publications, and events that contributed to establishing the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) as a national reference for research, teaching, and critical debate on the contemporary history of Luxembourg. At the international level, the C²DH has established itself as a global platform for reflection, experimentation, and development in the field of digital history and historiography.

To mark this special anniversary, we will have the pleasure to welcome Johanna Drucker, Professor of Bibliographical Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for a talk entitled Value Exchange: Digitizing Cultural Knowledge Systems. Prof Drucker is internationally known for her work in artists’ books, the history of graphic design, typography, experimental poetry, fine art, and digital humanities.
