Would you like to discover History in its various facets? The Institute for History and the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History invite you to take a walk through time: along the year, national and international guests will guide us in different journeys across new research, concerning Luxembourg and beyond.

But history is neither watchmaking nor cabinet construction. It is an endeavor toward better understanding.

– Marc Bloch (1886-1944), The Historian’s Craft

Our Mission

Let’s Talk About History! (LTAH) regularly organises conferences and talks at the University of Luxembourg, with the support of the Institute for History and the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History.
LTAH was first organized in April 2016 by a group of history PhD students with the aim of inviting national and international guests to give rather casual talks about their field of study. Wanting to convey a broad picture of the discipline, the chosen topics represent a large variety of historical research with different approaches (such as gender, economy, popular culture, memory, etc.) and from different periods (contemporary history, modern history, antiquity, etc.).
The format is based on the idea that History usually is a subject to conjure broad interest, but that Academia, in general, offers only little meeting opportunity between researchers and the general public. To remedy this grievance, the idea of creating a space, which brings together people with a shared curiosity for historical topics, was born.
Let’s Talk About History! therefore wants to pursue the promotion of historical knowledge to the non-academic public and encourage the dialogue between researchers and society.
