Next week (June 17), I will present our binaural radio drama at the next Forum Z organized by the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C2DH). Forum Z (Z for “Zeitgeschichte”, contemporary history) is a platform for a critical and open discussions of current issues in contemporary Luxembourgish and European history. Interested citizens are invited to debate with experts about different topics, new approaches and new sources in contemporary history. The next (and third) Forum Z will focus on the “Future of Storytelling”, in particular on how digital technologies will and already have affect(ed) historical storytelling.

The event will take place at the Centre national de littérature in Mersch. My colleagues from C2DH will present different virtual exhibitions and new digital tools like histograph. I will set up twelve pairs of headphones and invite people to listen to “Glanz und Elend der Kunstkopf-Stereophonie”, a binaural radio play about the history of (full) binaural sound reproduction.
