Luxembourg National Research Fund

Corpornation: Forging a modern society

Sparked by a collection of over 2,000 images, two projects led by Prof Karin Priem from the Luxembourg Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) reflect on the industrial heritage and societal impact of major Luxembourg-based steel and iron producing company ARBED, examining the social and educational initiatives of the company and how it helped shape Luxembourg’s national and international identity in a time of industrialisation.

Launched in 2013 and 2014 respectively, the FAMOSO projects focus on the interactions between industrialisation and cultural, economic and societal transformations in Luxembourg, and beyond.
