Zoé Konsbruck

Zoé is a doctoral researcher at the Centre for Contemporary and Digital History (C²DH) working on the history of deindustrialisation in Luxembourg. In her PhD project she examines deindustrialisation between 1970 and 2000, focusing on its impact on the steel towns in southern Luxembourg and the Greater Region. The research examines the effects of deindustrialisation while analysing how local actors such as politicians, workers, residents and trade unionists perceived and reacted to these changes at both local and transnational levels. She holds a MA in Contemporary History and a BA in History from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich. The history of deindustrialisation, urban and cultural history are among her main academic interests.
