Logo C2DH

Multilingual, international and research-oriented, the University of Luxembourg was founded in 2003 and is the only public university of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. The C2DH (Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History) is an interdisciplinary centre at the University of Luxembourg. It works on issues related to contemporary history, digital history and public history. The Centre is inspired by the concept of “thinkering”, aiming at promoting a hands-on approach to new digital sources, tools and infrastructures in doing history.

C2DH is a research centre of the highest academic excellence for the study, analysis and public dissemination of contemporary Luxembourgish and European history. It aims to perform as a key player in three interrelated fields of interest. First, as a national platform for the critical discussion and academic study of questions related to the contemporary history of Luxembourg from a transnational perspective. Second, as an international hub for reflection on the methodological and epistemological challenges of history in the digital age. Third, as a local mediator in the promotion of multimodal and digital literacy in academic research and teaching at the University of Luxembourg.
