Belgisch Tijdschrift voor Nieuwste Geschiedenis, XLIX, 2019, 2-3

In 2019 vieren we drie verjaardagen : 50 jaar CegeSoma, 50 jaar BTNG en 75 jaar bevrijding van België. Dit dubbelnummer presenteert zestien bijdragen over onder meer de geschiedschrijving, archieven en collecties,  mondelinge geschiedenis, digital humanities en herdenkingen.

En 2019, nous célébrerons trois anniversaires:  les 50 ans du CegeSoma, les 50 ans de RBHC et les 75 ans de la libération de la Belgique. Ce double numéro présente seize contributions sur des sujets tels que l'historiographie, les archives et les collections, l'histoire orale, les humanités numériques et les commémorations.

In 2019, we will celebrate three anniversaries: the 50th anniversary of CegeSoma, the 50th anniversary of the Journal of Belgian History and the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Belgium. This special double issue presents sixteen articles on subjects ranging from historiography, archives and collections, oral history, digital humanities and commemorations.

75 jaar geschiedenis van de Tweede Wereldoorlog in België / 75 ans d’histoire de la Seconde Guerre mondiale en Belgique / 75 years of Second World War history in Belgium

An anniversary issue of the JBH in 2019

The first issue of the JBH will be published in June 2019. This issue will contain four articles about  the position of Flemings in German National Socialist marriage policies, the ‘Activist’ Council of Flanders (1917-1918), Belgian military armament policies during the 1930s and Belgian diplomacy in relation to president Mobutu’s Zaire. The issue also contains book reviews and an overview of new PhD’s. The following issue is already in full preparation as well. No less than three anniversaries will form the cause for the double-sized issue 2-3 : the 50th anniversary of the JBH, the CegeSoma’s 50th anniversary and the commemoration of 75 years of the liberation of Belgium. This is why this will be a  thematic issue about ’75 years of history of WWII’ in Belgium, with contribution of ca. 15 authors. The issue will be presented during a conference in the Belgian senate on 10 December 2019. An ideal moment therefore to renew or confirm your subscription. Please contact Hilde Keppens ( ), mentionning ‘JBH subscription’.
