Two PUBLICATIONS for sale – The Cradle of the Second World War & Archival Image

During the Second World War in Belgium, children are born out of relations between Belgian women and German soldiers. Who were there parents and how did they meet? The book by Gerlinda Swillen, associated researcher at CegeSoma, looks into these relations and their consequences.
What makes an image an archival document? The original idea of the study co-directed by Julie Maeck, researcher at CegeSoma is to identify, on the basis of a wide variety of media, the processes that contribute in giving the image an archival status.

Publications - The Mysteries of Military Courts and of Contemporary Justice

The Interuniversity Attraction Pole (IAP) ‘Justice and Populations’ has published no less than two new publications. The first deepens our knowledge on military justice and gives an overview of the collections for future research. The second introduces the reader to the mysteries of the judicial world on the basis of a series of keywords.


The new double issue of the JBH has been published. It contains six articles on a variation of subjects as well as a ‘debate’ section which, halfway through the period of the centenary commemorations of 14-18, proposes a critical view on the commemorative phenomenon, but also on the new fields of research and distribution of knowledge with regard to the First World War.
