Schreiber gliedern ihre Texte visuell in kleinere Portionen oder Teiltexte, die eine Unterbrechung des Textflusses darstellen und die Information strukturieren (Heinemann & Viehweger 1991). Diese Gliederung erfolgt durch einfache grafisch-formale Mittel, die genre-spezifisch sind und die sich an sprachlich realisierten inhaltlich-thematischen Kriterien sowie an Kriterien der Textkohärenz orientieren (Longacre 1979, van Dijk 1981). Stein (2003) zeigt in seiner Studie, dass der Zusammenhang zwischen dem inhaltlich-thematischen Wechsel und der grafisch-formalen Absatzmarkierung im Text Studierenden der Germanistik als Konzept zwar bekannt ist, jedoch in der Anwendung Schwierigkeiten bereitet. In diesem Vortrag wird am Beispiel deutschsprachiger Masterarbeiten gezeigt, welche Schwierigkeiten den Studierenden die Platzierung und Strukturierung von Absätzen bereitet und welchen Einfluss dies auf Textkohärenz und Leserorientierung hat. Die Ergebnisse basieren auf einer kontrastiven linguistischen Analyse deutsch-, englisch- und französischsprachiger Theoriekapitel in 12 verschiedenen Masterarbeiten aus demselben Fach, in denen die grafisch-formale Absatzmarkierung, die linguistische Struktur von Absätzen und der Einsatz kohäsiver Mittel untersucht wurden.

This project aims to explore home literacy environment (HLE) and family language policy (FLP) of language minority preschool children in Luxembourg. These aims were explored through four phases. In the first phase we investigated language resources and activities of children in their families. To achieve this aim, we administered the questionnaires on home literacy environment to the parents with migrant backgrounds from five highest migrant municipalities in Luxembourg. In the second phase, through the interviews with the interested parents from the first phase, we explored family language policy: how parents and children learn, manage and negotiate different languages at home. In the third phase, we tested early literacy and numeracy of preschool language minority children, in their home languages and Luxembourgish, at school. In the fourth phase, we asked the teachers of the participating schools to answer three questions on the challenges and opportunities while working with language minority children and the needs they have to improve their work. This study, the first of its kind in Luxembourg, is extremely important for understanding linguistic state-of-the-art of language minority children in their families. Luxembourg is falling behind the OECD mean in reading (ranked 32nd in 2015), where Portuguese children are being particularly vulnerable. Early literacy skills are critical for children’s later academic achievement. A wealth of research showed that children’s home language should not be abandoned as it is crucial for promoting dynamic multilingualism and assuring cross-linguistic transfer. This study aims to reveal valuable information about home literacy practices and policies of families with language minority preschool children. Based on this information we can strengthen the collaboration with schools regarding children’s multilingual processing and academic achievement. [less ▲]

Translanguaging (TL) pedagogy is the strategic deployment of the entire linguistic and non-linguistic repertoire for learning and teaching (García & Seltzer 2016). Particular educational advantages of translanguaging are: (1) deeper and fuller understanding of the subject matter, (2) helps the development of the weaker language, (3) facilitates home-school links and cooperation, and (4) helps the integration of fluent speakers with early learners (García & Li Wei 2014, p. 67). TL is transformative for the child, for the teacher and the whole education. TL space develops the sense of connectedness (Li Wei 2011b) which is important for children's cognitive, linguistic, and socio-emotional development. By the use of the whole linguistic repertoire children can develop criticality and creativity. According to García and Li Wei (2014), creativity is "pushing and breaking the boundaries between the old and the new, the conventional and the original, and the acceptable and the challenging". (p. 67) while criticality is "the ability to use available evidence appropriately, systematically and insightfully, to inform considered views of cultural, social, political and linguistic wisdom, to question and problematize received wisdom and to express views adequately through reasoned responses to situations" (p. 67). The development of creativity and criticality are important skills for children's education and translanguaging pedagogy creates space for the development of these skills. [less ▲]

Musikhistoriographie ist vielschichtig. Die Geschichtsschreibung über Musik in Luxemburg gliedert sich in verschiedene Teilaspekte. Zunächst ist sie Teil regionaler Musikforschung in Europa und zudem, was Luxemburg betrifft, nationale Musikforschung. Ein erster Blickwinkel ist der musikethnologische: Ein Volk, eine Nation hat seine/ihre Lieder, die in ihm/ihr entstehen, aufgenommen, mündlich über Landes- sowie Sprachgrenzen und über Generationen überliefert werden. Volkstümliche Lieder schauen dem Volk „auf’s Maul“, sind Volksliedern nachempfunden, stammen aus der Feder von Komponisten und sind – zumindest auf Luxemburg bezogen, patriotisch gefärbt. Ein weiterer Blickwinkel luxemburgischer Musik befasst sich mit der Kunstmusik, und hier ist die staatliche Unabhängigkeit des Großherzogtums ein historischer Ausgangspunkt. Musiksoziologische Überlegungen leiten den Blick auf das Wesen und Werden von Musikgesellschaften („community music“). Ausgangspunkt ist eine liberalere Verfassung, durch welches den Bürgern zum ersten Mal das Versammlungsrecht angeboten wurde. Die Professionalisierung der Musik in Luxemburg nimmt ihren Ausgangspunkt mit der Entwicklung der musikalischen Bildung, welche in den Händen der ersten Komponistengeneration lag und auf die später aufgebaut wurde.

In this contribution, we use a factorial design to explore the moderating role of transaction costs on scarring due to previous unemployment and skills underutilization. Furthermore, we investigate the extent to which the perceived difficulty of recruiting moderates these effects. Factorial designs allow studying respondents’ evaluations as a function of multidimensional stimuli. In this application, we create a pool of hypothetical candidates, where we experimentally vary individual characteristics of young job applicants. We then measure how our respondents, actual recruiters, evaluate the hiring chances of these young people. We further use information provided by the respondents to estimate transaction costs. Using data from a recent large-scale factorial survey of recruiters in four European countries and employing multilevel linear regression models, we found, overall, scarring due to skills underutilization to exceed scarring due to unemployment. Skills underutilization was especially penalized when recruiting for a particular position was considered easy. Indirect transaction costs, particularly anticipated time required for organizational socialization, were negatively associated with unemployment scarring, but positively with scarring due to skill underutilization. Unemployment spells only had a negative effect on hiring chances, for jobs where there were monetary expenses for introductory training. Our findings constitute new evidence on the heterogeneity of scarring effects on hiring chances. We further contribute to the literature by highlighting the role of transaction costs and labor market performance. [less ▲]

We study a problem of relay selection in a two-hop amplify-and-forward (AF) enabled relaying network for facilitating simultaneous Wireless Transmission of Information and Energy (Wi-TIE) to a destination able to perform both information processing and energy harvesting concurrently. Considering the time switching (TS) and power splitting (PS) based Wi-TIE schemes, we formulate an optimization problem to maximize the overall user data rate while ensuring a minimum harvested power. In this context, we obtain suitable closed form solution and demonstrate through simulation results the Rate-Energy (R-E) trade-off in two different scenarios: (i) with only the relay assisted link, and (ii) with the direct link together with the relay assisted link.

During the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) around 35000 volunteers from many countries fought in the so-called International Brigades that were created and organised by the Communist International. Roughly 4000 of these volunteers were of Jewish descent. In december 1937, the Jewish Naftali Botwin company was formed within the 13th Polish Dombrowski Brigade as a result of lobbying efforts by Polish-Jewish migrant communists in Paris. In their daily newspaper, Naye Prese, the company’s existence became an important part of the propaganda battle waged on the ‘Jewish street’ in Paris in support of the Comintern’s post-1935 Popular Front tactic. But while the propaganda was unmistakably communist, the subtext became increasingly Jewish in the course of the war. Indeed, against a background of age-old allegations of ‘Jewish cowardice’, Naye Prese consistently emphasised that the fight of Jewish volunteers, symbolised by the Botwin Company, had an emancipatory dimension: Jews were worthy and equal fighters. Their participation simultaneously served as a model of Jewish action to be emulated by Jewish migrants in France as they sought to negotiate increasingly difficult living circumstances. After World War II and the Holocaust, the memory of Jewish volunteers became decisively shaped by debates on Jewish responses to fascism and Nazism; their participation was inscribed in a broader narrative of Jewish resistance that aimed to counter the myth of Jewish passivity in the face of the Nazi onslaught. To put it succinctly: ‘Spain’ served to prove that Jews did not go like “sheep to the slaughter” but already resisted Hitler in Spain. Based upon my scholarship on Jewish volunteers in the International Brigades, the aim of this paper, then, is to analyze the symbolic meaning of their participation, and show the various ways in which the qualification ‘Jewish’ was and has been imbued with meaning, both during and after the Spanish Civil War. Ultimately, I will show how volunteers of Jewish descent during the Spanish Civil War became Jewish volunteers after the Holocaust. [less ▲]

Pest und Lepra gehören zu den schrecklichsten Krankheiten der Geschichte. Die Erfahrung mit diesen Seuchen hat sich tief ins kollektive Gedächtnis eingegraben und wirkt bis heute nach. Und das, obwohl beide Krankheiten schon lange aus Europa verschwunden sind. Die Lepra seit ca. 300 Jahren und die Pest seit dem Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts. Dennoch üben Pest und Lepra in unserer Gesellschaft bis heute eine starke Faszination von Schauer, Grusel und Schrecken aus. Gerne und häufig werden Pest- und Lepramotive deshalb in der Literatur verwendet, aber auch ungleich plakativer in Romanen, in Film und Fernsehen sowie auch in Computerspielen. Der Vortrag widmet sich den historischen Figurationen von Lepra und Pest, ihren historischen Wurzeln und Ausprägungen. Wie reagierten die Gesellschaften auf die Bedrohung durch die Seuchen? Mit welchen Methoden wurde versucht, die schicksalhaften und unerklärlichen Krankheitserfahrungen verständlich zu machen und zu kategorisieren? Welche Bilder und Metaphern lassen sich greifen? Eine besondere Rolle spielen dabei ästhetische Dimensionen von Krankheitsdarstellungen, wie an vielen Beispielen gezeigt wird. [less ▲]

Die Vorlesung widmet sich in erster Linie der politischen Geschichte des 16. bis 18. Jahrhunderts, in der das Herzogtum Luxemburg eine Provinz der habsburgischen Niederlande war. Mit der Abdankung Kaiser Karls V. war Luxemburg im Jahr 1556 Teil der Spanischen Niederlande geworden und geriet in den Mittelpunkt der Auseinandersetzungen mit Frankreich. Auch als die Provinz 1714 unter österreichische Herrschaft fiel, setzte sich der Konflikt mit Frankreich fort. Er prägte die Geschichte Luxemburgs bis zum Ende des Ancien Régime maßgeblich und konnte erst mit der endgütigen Festlegung der Grenzen zwischen beiden Staaten im Brüsseler Vertrag von 1779 beendet werden. Am Beispiel des sogenannten Pyrenäenfriedens von 1659 soll anhand ausgewählter Quellen der enge Bezug zwischen Politik und Kartographie aufgezeigt werden. Es wird verdeutlicht, wie schwierig sich die kartographische Umsetzung eines Friedensvertrages gestaltete, vor dem Hintergrund verschiedener politischer Zielsetzungen, einer komplexen Herrschaftsstruktur mit sich überlagernden Grenzen und unterschiedlichen Raumvorstellungen. Damit zusammenhängend wird der Prozess der frühneuzeitlichen Staatsbildung betrachtet, der seit dem späten 16. Jahrhundert einsetzte und bis zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts zu einer fortschreitenden Zentralisierung und einem Ausbau der Verwaltung führte. [less ▲]

Predicting failure in aircraft structures – simulating fracture across scales and times You could fly every day of your life in a commercial aircraft for twenty thousand years without suffering a fatal accident. This extraordinary level of safety is the product of decades of engineering and materials science research. Simultaneously, engineers have strived to produce lighter and stronger aircraft, with increased range and metals have thus been gradually replaced by lighter advanced composite materials which take up more than half of the structural weight of today's most advanced aircraft. Such progress has been largely enabled by modeling and simulation of materials and structures, which have revolutionized design by enabling engineers to investigate virtually various design strategies. This presentation will focus on the challenges which have been posed, are posed, and will be posed to such modeling and simulation tools in the strive to predict the durability of lighter, stronger, longer-ranging and more reliable aircraft.

Research suggests negative effects of unemployment and skill underutilization on subsequent labor market outcomes. Among others, signaling theory has been used to explain why recruiters may evaluate competence and commitment of some job applicants less favorably than others. However, various country-, firm-, occupation-, and job-specific context factors may moderate such scarring effects. For example, a high youth unemployment rate may be associated with more scarring of previous unemployment spells and these effects might be different for occupations with different skill requirements. In this contribution, we explore the moderating role of transaction costs, i.e., the direct and indirect costs of recruiting and training new employees for scarring due to previous unemployment and skill underutilization. Furthermore, we investigate the extent to which the perceived difficulty of recruiting moderates these effects. Using data from a recent large-scale factorial survey of recruiters in four European countries (N~=~2,000) and employing multilevel linear regression models, we found, overall, scarring due to skill underutilization to exceed scarring due to unemployment. Skill underutilization was especially penalized when recruiting for a particular position was considered easy. Indirect transaction costs, particularly anticipated time required for organizational socialization, were negatively associated with unemployment scarring, but positively with scarring due to skill underutilization. Unemployment spells only had a negative effect on hiring chances, for jobs where there were monetary expenses for introductory trainings. Our findings constitute new evidence on the heterogeneity of scarring effects on hiring chances. We further contribute to the literature by highlighting the role of transaction costs and labor market performance. [less ▲]

In numerous sectors and industries worldwide, there is a trend towards an intercompany and often international division of value creation and related work tasks. To overcome the challenges of complex cross-enterprise supply chain networks, innovative approaches to visualize, assess and enhance value streams are sought. The StreaM method, which is described in this paper, enables a comprehensive analysis, design and planning of cross-company product and information flows on different levels of value stream detail. At the same time, the entire methodology is based on a common understanding of key symbols, parameters and calculation procedures. In addition, the use of the developed StreaM method and the associated model in a case study proves its practical applicability in an industrial setting. In further validation projects, the transfer of the “Standardized cross-enterprise Value Stream Management Method” to other industry sectors is envisaged to continuously improve energy, trade or service processes.

In this CALIDIE Colloquium, I will present ‘Nexus Analysis’ an interdisciplinary approach I have been using in different projects over the years. I will show how this approach is particularly useful for doing research seeking to impact the situation one studies and often implies working in partnership with researchers and practitioners from different horizons. I will discuss two examples applying this framework. The first case study will concentrate on the study of reconversion of professionals to new lines of work. The second case study will investigate reflections towards making a multilingual Higher Education programme more inclusive. Both case study presentations will be an opportunity to reflect about the conditions under which case studies might be useful from a practical and a theoretical standpoint. In closing the presentation, I hope to engage the participants in a more interactive dialogue around issues linked with inter-disciplinarity and mixed-methods approaches, theorizing, and axiomatic stances regarding values in doing science [less ▲]

This paper argues for a hybrid approach to historical research that combines ’traditional’ with digital hermeneutical approaches in a new practice of doing history. As the digital turn alters and affects all parts of the historical research process, this is a pressing challenge and need for all historians, not just for those engaged in ‘big data’ projects. Indeed, hybridity is, and should be, the new normal. Yet while most historians are accustomed to deploying digital approaches in the information gathering stage of their research, they often refrain from ‘going digital’ in its processing and especially analysis stages. Describing a number of digital tools used in work done on the diaries of Anne frank, the paper critically analyses and demonstrates the added value of incorporating them in all stages of historical research. Digital approaches enhance the methodological repertoire furnished by ‘traditional’ close reading practices. Hybrid approaches thus expand our intellectual horizons and the analytical power we bring to bear upon our sources. [less ▲]

Due to the separation between the historical and legal fields which have examined the issue of WWII reparations, no generally accepted definition of their current status exists either in the historical, legal or political spheres. This lack of clarity has greatly contributed to this issue remaining unresolved until the present. In his talk, Spero Paravantes looks at the way the issue was used by the Big Three in their dealings with each other after WWII. In light of the Greek government’s continued pursuit of WWI and WWII debts it claims are owed by Germany, and the recent claims made by the Polish government, this talk summarizes the historical, legal and political scholarship on the issue and also comments on its effect on relations between members of the Eurozone and the way in which responses to the issue of WWII reparations, and indeed the legacy of the war itself, have brought political and cultural divisions within the Eurozone again to forefront.

The discrete Pompeiu problem is stemmed from an integral-geometric question on the plane. The problem is whether we can reconstruct a function if we know the average values of the function on every congruent copy of a given pattern. After introducing the theory of spectral analysis on discrete Abelian groups, I show some results for the discrete version of the problem. One of the arguments is connected to a coloring problem of the plane. One of them is a geometric construction and some others based on some geometric and combinatoric properties of the plane. I also mention some unsolved questions of the topic. My talk is based on a joint work with M. Laczkovich and Cs. Vincze. [less ▲]

One of the statements concerning music education which impresses me the most is the following of Werner Jank and Martin Stroh (W. Jank, W.M. Stroh, Aufbauender Musikunterricht – Königsweg oder Sackgasse, http://www.musik-for.uni-oldenburg.de/vortraege/afs2005_jankstrohtext.pdf): ‘Many people do not take the discipline of music quite seriously. Unfortunately, they are right many times. Ironically, despite our thematic oversupply as regards music, we deny the children and youths at school experiences of true learning success by demanding too little of them. ’It describes on a gloomy note the problems which music teachers face regarding music and its heritage. Considering the curricula all over Europe however, we find a surprising uniformity including singing, musicking, listening, moving to the music, musical creativity and knowledge about music. On the other hand, music cannot be compared to any other discipline. Music literacy must be acquired in music schools on a voluntary basis and complementary to formal education. Music can be learned informally in a lifelong process, for example in community ensembles. Additionally, the question has to be raised which kind of music should be learned. Musical heritage is a social construction and represented in a world of changing media; music is more and more consumed and less and less actively practiced or learned in schools. It is for this reason that music education lags behind the development and has a challenging position in the canon of school subjects. However, we should not forget that the UNESCO selected two 1) In 2011: Táncház method: a Hungarian model for the transmission of intangible cultural heritage and 2) In 2016: Safeguarding of the folk music heritage by the Kodály concept on the register of intangible cultural heritage of human kind. And as luck would have it, both deal with music education, and both have their origins in Hungary. Should this be understood as a hint of the responsible persons of the UNESCO to developers of school curricula not to underestimate or simply to ignore music education in the canon of school subjects? One of its problems is that it has to cover a wide range of contents. Music is not only the music of the today’s modern popular music or the music of the famous masters, but, from an ethnomusicological point of view, the music of our region, our nation, or continent or the music of others far from the globalised mainstream. One could say globalisation and musical heritage form two antipodes. But, as several interviews with my students reveal, globalisation, with the help of digitisation, can also enable a worldwide access to regional music traditions. Zoltán Kodály’s and Leo Kestenberg’s commitment to music education is today still relevant. In Germany, the system of music education is still building on the achievements of Leo Kestenberg. Zoltan Kodály’s concept, based on a national / regional tradition, has reached a global standing. More as for others, his legacy deals with Music, Music Education and Musical Heritage. [less ▲]

Dr Paravantes' presentation, " European Migrations post-WWII: Past, Present and Future, " will discuss the history of migrations and migration/refugee policy within the EU, from the beginning of the integration process and the formation of the European Coal and Steel Community (ECSC) until the present. The talk will focus on earlier migrations within Western Europe, the rules established to regulate internal and external migration, and the steps which the various iterations of the European Union and its individual members took to deal with them. The overarching objective of this presentation is to place current events, and reactions to them, into the context of European integration and to examine misconceptions about migration policy and borders in the EU.

We investigate the class of binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set. Here quasitriviality (also known as conserva-tiveness) means that the operation always outputs one of its input values. We also examine the special situations where the operations are commutative and nondecreasing. In the latter case, these operations reduce to discrete uninorms, which are discrete fuzzy connectives that play an important role in fuzzy logic. As we will see nondecreasing, associative and quasitrivial operations are chara-cterized in terms of total and weak orderings through the so-called single-peakedness property introduced in social choice theory by Duncan Black. This will enable visual interpretaions of the above mentioned algebraic properties. Motivated by these results, we will also address a number of counting issues: we enumerate all binary associative and quasitrivial operations on a given finite set as well as of those operations that are commutative, are nondecreasing, have neutral and/or annihilator elements. As we will see, these considerations lead to several, previously unknown, integer sequences. [less ▲]
