Journal of Belgian History, 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

The first 2020 issue to be published in June

The first 2020 issue contains four articles, by Florentin Dawagne about prison policies with regard to the punishment of 'incivism' in Mons and Charleroi after the First World War (in French), by Guy Bud on European presence in the Belgian Congo and Ruanda-Urundi during World War II (in English), by Elie Teicher on the activities in Latin America (as well as the ideological development) of the left-wing writer Conrad Detrez (in French) and finally by Xavier Dabe on the Belgian government crisis of 1965 (in English) . The issue also includes a position paper published in our ‘debate section’ of Christoph Brüll & Geneviève Warland. They come back to the controversial and disputed book Schuldfragen by the German historian Ulrich Keller about the massacres of Belgian civilians during the German invasion of the First World War. Furthermore, this issue also includes book reviews and summaries of new doctorate research. Depending on any potential delays because of the current exceptional situation, this issue should normally be published in June 2020.
