Our latest project
Student life in time of coronavirus
For more than 8 months now the coronavirus pandemic changed our way of living. This is particularly true for students. A student from our Faculty share his experience of this new reality with RTL.
Geography & Spatial Planning
Luxembourg in Transition
A consortium of researchers and designers led by the “Geography & Spatial Planning” department at the University of Luxembourg is one of the 10 teams selected by the Ministry of Energy and Regional Planning to imagine the future of the country. The objective of the mission is clear: bring innovative ideas for a sustainable and resilient Grand Duchy.
Behavioural & Cognitive Sciences
How can emotions and multilingualism influence the school success of children with autism?
Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) tend to have poorer school results than their capacities would predict. Why is that? What can we do to tackle this problem? The ASA project aims to address these questions.

What is
Humanities.lu?

Through humanities and social sciences, we learn about our cultural heritage, about the foundations of society and the ongoing construction of history. We become aware of the constitutive force of language, of diverging cultures and identities, and how social structures develop into mental structures. But the ‘soft’ sciences are not focussing on the past only. In various ways, they are also engaged with the future, they extend the scope of the thinkable and inform ongoing cultural processes. Their role is to reveal alternatives in dealing with current issues and future challenges.

At the University of Luxembourg, The Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences addresses these complex challenges with an interdisciplinary approach. The purpose of this website is to show the major outcomes of this work by presenting the Faculty’s six main areas of research: Education & Social Work, Migration, Behavioural & Cognitive Sciences, Humanities, Social Sciences, Geography & Spatial Planning. In all of these areas, researchers tackle the challenges the Luxembourgish society is facing today: How can we belong? How shall we live? How can we shape our future? They all contribute to the common goal of an inclusive, open and resourceful society. They show that #HumanitiesMatter.
