The use of crop biotechnology is steadily increasing in the agrosystems of industrialized countries. Recent advances in genome editing are anticipated to further accentuate this trend. Given its potential for low input agriculture, there is a need to bring the benefits of crop biotechnology to developing and emerging countries. The challenge goes beyond the mere generation of transgenic crops because development and deployment of genetically engineered crops require local capacities and support from the authorities. In the recent years, we have used biotechnological approaches to improve cassava, the most important root crop in the tropics. Cassava production and processing suffer from several constraints, including viral diseases, drought and post-harvest deterioration. A better understanding of crop responses to biotic and abiotic stresses combined with genetic engineering approaches can be particularly instrumental to generate plants with improved traits. We have used Omics approaches to characterize cassava response to stresses and to subsequently implement biotechnological approaches for trait improvement. Smallholders and industries in cassava growing regions need traits such as resistance against cassava mosaic and brown streak diseases, prolonged shelf-life, drought tolerance, modified starch and improved nutritional content. Importantly those technologies should be implemented in local germplasm to secure impact for the local value chains. We actively collaborate with local institutions for technology transfer and assessment of cassava technologies in the field. [less ▲]

Observation of solar radiation in the infrared have been performed since the mid-fifties at the International Scientific Station of the Jungfraujoch (ISSJ, Swiss Alps, 46.5°N, 8.0°E, 3580 m a.s.l.), in the framework of the Network for Detection of Atmospheric Change (NDACC, www.ndacc.org). Systematic monitoring of the chemical composition of the Earth's atmosphere started in 1984 by using two state-of-the‐art Fourier Transform InfraRed (FTIR) instruments, while grating spectrometers were used previously in the early 1950s, and from the mid-1970s onwards, covering 40 years of quasi-continuous solar observations. In this framework, I will discuss optimization of retrieval strategies from infrared solar observations and methane trend analysis. [less ▲]

Eigentlich liegt der Fall klar: nach der Befreiung im Herbst 1944 wurde das kleine Grenzgebiet von Eupen-Malmedy, das im Mai 1940 vom „Großdeutschen Reich“ annektiert worden war, wieder belgisch. Der deutsch-belgische Ausgleichsvertrag vom September 1956 bekräftigte dies nochmals. Doch wurde diese offizielle Position zwar im Bonner Auswärtigen Amt vertreten, jedoch nicht von allen Ministerien geteilt. Vor allem durch das Bundesministerium für Gesamtdeutsche Fragen erfolgte nach 1949 eine „Betreuung“ für die Minderheit, die Fragen nach den Kontinuitäten zur Vorkriegszeit aufwirft. Wenn auch die belgische Souveränität in den „Ostkantonen“ nicht mehr offen infrage gestellt wurde, fand dort in kleinem Umfang eine geheim gehaltene „Förderung“ kulturpolitischer Tätigkeiten statt – auch weil der belgische Staat nur wenige finanzielle Mittel bereitstellte. Erst mit der sich anbahnenden Schaffung einer „deutschen Kulturgemeinschaft“ im Zuge der ersten Verfassungsrevision in Belgien und nach dem Eintritt der SPD in die Bundesregierung wurde diese finanzielle Hilfe Ende der 1960er Jahre eingestellt. An ihre Stelle traten nunmehr deutsche Stiftungen, was Ende der 1980er Jahre zu einem politischen Skandal in der heutigen Deutschsprachigen Gemeinschaft führte. Der Vortrag fragt nach der Bedeutung von „Eupen-Malmedy“ für das deutsch-belgische Verhältnis seit 1945 und zeigt die Schwierigkeiten für die westdeutschen Akteure, eine auswärtige Kulturpolitik zu konzipieren und dabei die Fallen der Vergangenheit zu vermeiden.

Coining the concept of ‘graphiation’ to theorize the narrative functions of drawing in comics, Philippe Marion’s Traces en cases has become a seminal text in comics studies due to its further theorizations by, among, others, Jan Baetens, Jared Gardner, and Simon Grennan. This presentation hopes to make an original contribution to these discussions by focusing on the issue of quotation and redrawing in graphic narratives, practices that interrogate how the ‘graphic trace’ relates to the drawing subject. I will compare and contrast two culture-specific terms: ‘case mémorable’ in the context of Franco-Belgian comics and ‘swiping’ in the context of American comic books. Both terms point at how comics images circulate across the borders of their original formats trough different technicalities of reproduction (mechanical or hand-crafted) that split them from both their immediate and larger contexts. While these terms are frequently used by creators, fans and readers alike, they have gained no currency in comics theory. My attempt, however, is not to argue for their inclusion within that vocabulary but rather to understand how these terms articulate, within the comics world, debates about quotation and redrawing. I will briefly retrace the genealogy of these terms in fan discourses to finally show how two contemporary cartoonists–Charles Burns and Olivier Josso Hamel–revisit them in ways that foreground the cultural and narrative stakes of reusing ‘old’ comics. Comparing these two terms will shed light on distinct conceptions of copying, originality and quotation, hopefully providing fresh perspectives on the theory of graphiation [less ▲]

Induced anisotropy is a constitutive feature of clays that can be numerically introduced through a proper "Rotational Hardening Rule" allowing the rotation of the yield and the potential plastic surfaces in the stress space. In this presentation, rotational hardening rule of yield surface for clays are first reviewed. Then, two typical rotational hardening rules are selected and compared through simulating drained triaxial tests of two Finnish clays. Furthermore, finite element simulations of a strip rigid footing considering different rotational hardening rules together with the case of isotropic yield surface without rotation are carried out in order to study the consequences of the isotropy assumption and the influence of the rotational hardening rule on the behavior of shallow foundation.

The multiplicity of systems, forms, categories, and practices of kinship has drawn the attention of anthropologists as central for the ways individuals and human groups think and experience their relationships with themselves, others, their society and the world they live in. Transformations – demographic, political, socio-cultural, economic, juridical, scientific, medical, or those related to age or gender – have contributed to constantly (re)define kinship. In particular, recent innovations regarding, among others, Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ARTs) and surrogacy, and the debates around same-sex couple marriage and adoption, have been understood as deep breaking points in relation to more "traditional" conceptions of kinship, appearing as yet unprecedented and controversial. From an anthropological point of view, such (re)configurations of kinship testify to a variety of articulation between the social, the cultural and the biological, society and nature, the constructed and the innate – categories central for definitions of kinship. This suggests a need to rethink kinship in all its dimensions, from public to intimate ones. Drawing from anthropology and intending to widen the field of empirical, theoretical and epistemological reflections, this conference invites a crossing of perspectives on contemporary (re)configurations of kinship within the human and social sciences with a focus on ethnographic approaches. It is organized around two main, yet non-exclusive lines of research. The first one wishes to interrogate the ways contemporary (re)configurations of kinship take place in different public and intimate entangled spaces. The second one opens up a debate on epistemology when it comes to crossed and comparative perspectives between contexts, themes or disciplines in order to analyse issues, contributions and limits of such field of research.

This research contributes to the current efforts for developing probabilistic methods in structural fire engineering (SFE) to foster the shift towards performance-based design in the field. A methodology is presented to assess the risk related to structural failure due to fire in multi-story buildings. At the core of this methodology is the concept of fragility functions, which allows quantifying in a systematic way the effects of the uncertainties in both demand and capacity parameters on the reliability level. The fragility functions, adopted here for the purpose of SFE, yield the conditional probability to reach predefined damage states as a function of an intensity measure of the fire. The damage states are grouped in categories such as ‘slight’, ‘moderate’, ‘extensive’, and ‘complete’, for estimating the magnitude of the damage. The fragility functions are defined for an entire building and depend on parameters such as the structural type and the fire resistance rating of the structural components. As the functions give conditional probabilities, they are completed with probabilistic models for the occurrence of a fire in the building (i.e. likelihood of the hazard) and the expected value of the fire load density (i.e. intensity of the hazard). These models depend on the building occupancy type, surface area, and active fire protection measures. Finally, one can obtain the (total) probability to reach different levels of potential damage for buildings of different typologies, structural design, size and occupancy. In addition, similar to earthquake engineering, one can also estimate the probability of reaching a certain damage state for a given probability of fire hazard. The methodology is illustrated for prototype multi-story steel buildings. An important contribution is the quantification of the safety level at the building scale, as opposed to an individual component. The results provide an insight for the discussion about the evolution of the design codes for a better standardization of this safety level. [less ▲]

Actualmente las universidades estructuran sus perfiles de egreso, programas y cursos aplicando dos principios esenciales: (1) el Aprendizaje Basado en Competencias o ABC y (2) el Enfoque Programa. En la presente ponencia se analiza las significaciones e implicaciones de estas expresiones, así como el impacto que tienen sobre las evaluaciones en estos tres niveles. Además se presentan algunas preguntas clave que los docentes pueden (deben) hacerse para autoevaluar sus logros en cada nivel; proceso permanente porque los currículos viven y se trasforman para adaptarse a los cambios en el mundo o para inducirlos. Cada una de las preguntas de autoevaluación se explican en detalle, con conceptos y ejemplos, en el libro Ideas e Innovaciones, Dispositivos de Evaluación de los Aprendizajes en la Educación, o IDEAS (Leclercq y Cabrera, 2014), escrito con la contribución de 16 autores. Para ilustrar lo que se puede hacer al evaluar, en el capítulo 3 de IDEAS, se usa una rosa de los vientos —motivo de la línea gráfica de este encuentro—, la cual describe lo existente o aquello que podría ser. Entre todas estas posibilidades, esta ponencia, presenta aquello que, desde mi punto de vista, se debe hacer. Las preguntas servirán para abordar sucesivamente la estructura de un currículo, la cual puede concebirse como un cubo, que en su cara frontal (dimensión horizontal), contiene a los tres pilares de la formación, siendo el pilar central el de los objetivos o del perfil de egreso, el cual puede articularse en cuatro pisos (dimensión vertical) llamados DIME (competencias Dinámicas, Instrumentales, Metacognitivas y Específicas); el pilar izquierdo representa los métodos y el derecho, las evaluaciones. En este esquema, las evaluaciones a las que puede someterse una propuesta curricular, se sitúan en cuatro niveles de profundidad o de amplitud temporal. El ABC implica que son los docentes, trabajando en equipos, los que deben concebir instrumentos para evaluar desempeños complejos. Se explicará por qué un Enfoque Programa es imprescindible para (1) Concebir situaciones reales o simuladas que agrupen saberes, destrezas y actitudes, (desarrollados en varios cursos), y cómo los docentes, sin perder de vista las competencias (concordancia vertical), pueden preparar a los estudiantes para esto. (2) Que cada curso (o cada actividad de enseñanza-aprendizaje) evidencie la Triple Concordancia entre Objetivos, Métodos y Evaluaciones (concordancia horizontal). Aquí, los criterios de calidad de las evaluaciones serán sólo mencionados, porque los ejemplos de sus aplicaciones a casos concretos se darán en la ponencia de Álvaro Cabrera. Finalmente, expondré lo que es el currículo oculto y cómo combatirlo. Ver documento atado. [less ▲]

In Alev Adil’s words, Australian novelist and essayist Gail Jones has chosen “to speak of silence, not of the silenced. [Her novel Sorry (2007)] is careful not to ventriloquize Aboriginal histories. The elegiac and occluded nature of [its] narrative is an ethical as much as aesthetic choice” (qtd. in Herrero 2011, 287). Ironically perhaps, the novel starts by immediately inviting the reader to be silent and to perk up his or her ears in order to listen to this story “that can only be told in a whisper” (3). This, I argue, functions as a kind of warning for readers, that throughout their reading they need to be attentive to, and perhaps search for, the hushed tone which this story demands and which suggests the existence of some deeper, underlying truth. In an article tackling the issue of writing and justice in the Australian context, Jones vindicates this form of obliquity, confessing that Sorry has “a political-allegorical aspect – as one would expect, claiming such a title”, yet that “it is not centrally concerned with representing the Stolen Generations. As a white Australian, it would be presumptuous to do so and it would risk appropriation of others’ painful experience” (2008, 84). She also contends that non-Indigenous writers who wish “to engage with ‘stolen’ matters must write from another perspective and perhaps use forms of indirection that will signal a refusal to ‘claim’ the experience of others” (79). Interacting with Russell West-Pavlov’s view of the Shakespearean intertext in Sorry as a “self-critical element of White usurping culture but also, possibly, as a collaborator in a coalition against the ongoing oppression of the Indigenous population which characterizes contemporary Australia” (2015, 391), my paper will examine how Jones exploits defamiliarizing techniques in order to undermine the dominant European discourse (as encoded in the Shakespearean text) without assuming an Aboriginal perspective. Her aim is to facilitate the emergence of an incipient, tentatively-defined counter-discourse sufficiently attuned to the specific realities of Australia. The paper argues that by adopting an Australian cultural perspective designed to decentre Shakespeare Jones hopes to reconcile history and writing, but also the divided aspects of White Australia’s twofold identity at a time of profound national changes.

A l’instar de la révolution induite par la disponibilité du temps pour chaque individu de la société, la possibilité de connaître sa position géographique conduit à de nouveaux challenges. Actuellement, il est possible de se géolocaliser à n’importe quel endroit du globe. Connaître sa position à l’intérieur d'un bâtiment, d'un centre commercial, voir au sein même d’un rayonnage n’est plus une utopie. Cette disponibilité de géolocalisation conduit d’une part à des changements importants dans la manière d’appréhender l’espace, et d’autre part, à la création de nouveaux services basé sur la connaissance de sa position en temps réel. A cours de cette conférence, nous aborderons les principes et systèmes permettant de collecter et de traiter cette information de position acquise en temps réel. Nous verrons ensuite quelques exemples d’utilisations de cette masse d’information collectée, notamment via l’utilisation de réseaux sociaux. L’exposé proposera volontairement une vision pragmatique de la question de la géolocalisation de la société sans se positionner, a priori, sur ses bienfaits ou ses dérives. [less ▲]

La rééducation orthophonique des troubles de la voix est un vaste sujet. Mon intention n’est pas de vous exposer des séries d’exercices consacrées à la coordination pneumo-phonique, à la qualité de l’accolement cordal, au placement de la voix dans les résonateurs ou encore à la posture. De nombreux ouvrages orthophoniques expliquent ces pratiques et peuvent aisément enrichir vos connaissances sur le sujet. Après une brève introduction, j’ai choisi de vous présenter une démarche thérapeutique concrète qui repose sur une pratique basée sur les preuves (Evidence Based Practice, EBP). Autrement dit, comment un thérapeute de la voix peut-il implémenter dans sa pratique les bases de l’EBP afin d’assurer le meilleur traitement à son patient. Aussi, pour illustrer mon propos, j’ai opté pour une technique très discutée : la thérapie manuelle. Nous débattrons donc de l’efficacité thérapeutique sachant que les études de niveau 1A ou 1B sur le classement des niveaux de preuves sont rares dans le domaine de la vocologie. Ensuite, je ferai entendre une série de voix pré et post traitements. Cette étape, je l’espère, vous réconciliera avec le concept d’efficacité parfois si compliqué à démontrer. Je clôturerai la séance par une capsule vidéo illustrant des morceaux choisis de la thérapie vocale de trois patientes. Ces patientes et leur thérapeute, Catherine Jansen, ont aimablement accepté de livrer leur voix face caméra. Et enfin, si le temps nous le permet, je vous inviterai à pratiquer deux ou trois exercices vus dans la vidéo. [less ▲]

Recent experimental and theoretical calculations point to a complex interplay between the electron and phonon baths in a wide variety of materials [1,2]. We propose a method of coupling the Boltzmann equations for the electron and phonon baths within the relaxation time approximation which we use to calculate the thermoelectric transport coefficients. Our model for the coupled Boltzmann Equation solver includes analytic models, including ${\bf k \cdot p}$ Hamiltonians and tight-binding Hamiltonians, for both the electron and phonon energies and analytic models for the electron and phonon relaxation mechanisms. From these calculations we hope to better understand the role and interplay of electron-phonon and phonon-phonon interactions on the thermoelectric transport coefficients. [1] - Phys. Rev.

Le coefficient binomial (u,v) de deux mots u et v est défini comme le nombre de fois que v apparaît comme sous-suite du mot u. Par exemple, (abbab,ab)=4. Il étend de manière naturelle le coefficient binomial de deux entiers. Ce concept a été largement étudié depuis plus d'une trentaine d'années (cf. par exemple, Simon et Sakarovitch). Dans cet exposé, je passerai tout d'abord en revue quelques résultats combinatoires classiques pour ensuite m'attarder sur l'équivalence k-binomiale. A l'instar de l'équivalence k-abélienne étudiée par Karhumäki et al., deux mots x et y sont k-binomialement équivalents si leurs coefficients binomiaux (x,v) et (y,v) coïncident pour les mots v de longueur au plus k. En fin d'exposé, j'évoquerai l'extension récente des triangles de Pascal et de Sierpinski à ces coefficients. [less ▲]

This work addresses the problem of jointly designing and pricing intermodal freight services during a medium-term planning horizon. Given the innate hierarchy in the problem, a bilevel program is considered where, at the upper level, an intermodal service provider seeks to maximize his profit through selecting the frequencies of his services and their associated prices, while at the lower level, target shipper firms choose to send their demands among the offered intermodal itineraries and the always available trucking competition.

La décentralisation politique, poussée à l'extrême dans le cadre du fédéralisme, amène souvent une complexification de la mise en œuvre des mécanismes de démocratie directe (référendum, consultation populaire) car elle implique la participation des citoyens qui relèvent d’entités subétatiques différentes. Or, dans un contexte parfois multinational et multi-identitaire, la décentralisation poussée – fédéralisme, régionalisme – rentre bien souvent en contradiction avec la dynamique majoritaire pure et simple. La recherche entend s'intéresser, par le droit comparé, à la prise en compte des phénomènes régionaux dans le recours aux instruments référendaires. [less ▲]

Calculations of the vibrational properties of the transition-metal dichalcoginides depend critically on the lattice parameters, symmetries of the underlying system, and the non-local dispersive interaction. Here we present phonon band structure calculations, dielectric tensors, elastic tensors, and Born Effective Charges for the transition-metal dichalcogenides $MoS_2$, $MoSe_2$, $MoTe_2$, $WS_2$, $WSe_2$, $NbS_2$, and $NbSe_2$. We systematically investigate the role of the long-range $e^⁻$-$e^⁻$ interaction, spin-orbit coupling, and pseudo-potential approximation, and highlight their importance on the TMD structural and vibrational properties. We find that the phonon spectrum, calculated with the help of a Grimme's D3 non-local Van der Waals interaction depends strongly on the accuracy of the lattice parameters and slightly on the addition of the non-local Van der Waals interaction in the phonon frequency itself. We also find that the sign of the Born Effective Charges on each atom in the Hexagonal TMDs are the opposite of similarly structured compounds. We explore reasons as to why this occurs. Additionally, our calculation of the dielectric tensor and elastic tensor allow us to describe the mechanical properties of the system which are necessary to know for future device applications.

Gostaria, nesta palestra, de referir-me à maneira como se foram tecendo, no discurso do saber, os laços entre cinema e literatura, propondo certas pistas de reflexão a fim de desatar e reatar esses laços. Para tanto, pode ser tomada, como ponto de partida, uma resposta dada pela escritora e cineasta Marguerite Duras durante uma entrevista na televisão em 1966: "Em geral, sou contra a adaptação do romance para o cinema, principalmente dos romances clássicos. (...) Imaginemos um jovem que nunca leu Moby Dick e que o leia depois de ter visto o filme. Para ele, o filme será um estorvo, sua relação com a narrativa será forçosamente impura, desde o início. É por isso que sou contra a adaptação das obras-primas para o cinema. Ela destrói, afasta, corrompe o fenômeno da leitura, que é um fenômeno importantíssimo, quando não o mais importante". [less ▲]

This paper presents different extensions of the classical GTN damage model implemented in a finite element code. The goal of this study is to assess these extensions for the numerical prediction of failure of a DC01 steel sheet during a single point incremental forming process, after a proper identification of the material parameters. It is shown that the prediction of failure appears too early compared to experimental results. Though, the use of the Thomason criterion permitted to delay the onset of coalescence and consequently the final failure. [less ▲]

Cracks in timber structural elements lead users to downgrade them, while their influence on the mechanical properties is globally unknown. They are thus disadvantageous and responsible for an underutilization of timber in new constructions. The phenomenon also impacts constructions subjected to transformation or renovation that are most of the time fully replaced, simply because of the ignorance of their bearing capacity. The present paper investigates the influence of cracks on stiffness, by analytical and numerical developments. It proposes a classification of cracks in six types (+ composite types) and models real beams, randomly cracked. It shows that the presence of cracks seems to decrease the stiffness of the beam. However, it is not so obvious to give the most damaging type of crack, among the six proposed. Further investigations will be necessary. [less ▲]

Les circonstances ne sont guère favorables aux professeurs de français, ni aux professeurs de langues et de cultures d’une manière générale, qui traversent des temps aussi difficiles que cruciaux dans chacun de leur pays, chacune de leur institution et chacune de leur classe. Face à l’uniformisation linguistique et culturelle, aux restrictions budgétaires, à l’instrumentalisation de l’enseignement, c’est presque devenu un sacerdoce que de promouvoir la diversité non intéressée, les échanges non commerciaux, les valeurs non marchandes, bref l’humanisme. En ce qui concerne la langue française, partant les cultures francophones, le défi n’est pas seulement – par leur enseignement – de les maintenir vivantes et attrayantes dans des pays où elles sont étrangères ou secondes, mais aussi résistantes et entreprenantes dans les pays francophones où leur échappent des domaines d’activités aussi fondamentaux que l’économie, la diplomatie, la science, voire l’enseignement supérieur. Un défi encore plus important est de replacer la culture, les cultures, que la langue, que les langues, véhiculent, associent, enrichissent, au centre du vivre-ensemble sous peine de voir s’aggraver les replis et les conflits identitaires. C’est précisément en refusant de servir une conception étroite et stérile de la mondialisation qu’acquièrent leur grandeur les projets des professeurs de français dans le monde, de leurs associations, de la FIPF.

An automotive multi-evaporator air conditioning system, which is composed of two evaporators and a secondary fluid cooler, was modeled using the LMS Imagine.Lab Amesim® 1D software. The present study focuses on understanding the dynamic coupling of the several loop components such as the three evaporators having different cooling capacities. This kind of multi-evaporator air-conditioning system has a number of technological barriers that must be overcome. Understanding the behavior of their respective expansion devices and the choice of these latter is also essential to control properly the transient phase and ensure an optimal operation of the air-conditioning system. In order to study the behavior of the loop, step disturbances were simulated on an operating point at medium and high load. The impact of these disturbances on the stability of the supplied cooled air temperature is analyzed for two types of expansion valve. Initial results show that the thermostatic expansion valves can cause instabilities. Furthermore, the electronic expansion valves have to be regulated with an advanced control in order to use their full potential and to try to achieve desired results. [less ▲]

How and through which practices do Ageing Migrant Domestic Workers negotiate their access to social protection across borders? How are these negotiations influenced both by their intersecting gender, race, class, generational standpoints and their transnational family relations? This contribution deals with these questions and focuses on the case of Peruvian and Colombian Ageing Migrant Domestic Workers in the city of Brussels. Such migrants share a paradoxical positioning as they contribute productively and reproductively to the development of their receiving and sending societies but experience a lack of formal and informal social protection on both sides. This analysis first maps through a moving ethnography the practices they use to negotiate their access to Social Protection in the areas of: 1- access to labor, 2- social security entitlement and portability, 4- housing and 3- informal symbolic-practical care. Secondly, it theorizes these practices as an assemblage of social protection that’s simultaneously made out of transnational interpersonal relationships and formal support systems. Thirdly, building from the work of Amelina et al, (2012) Transnational and Intersectional lens are used to analyze how the effectiveness of such assemblage is simultaneously affected by these actor’s gender, race, class and generational positioning within the global reproduction of labor as well as by their transnational family relations. Concluding, it’s argued such assemblage of protection increases ageing migrants’ life chances but reproduces and produces social- inequalities at the local, transnational and global level. This contribution provides a glance at how transnational needs for social protection are negotiated across borders. Furthermore, it’s relevant in a context of increasing human mobility where inequalities in access to social protection emerge as a public transnational social question that is relevant both for academics and policy makers.

The purpose of this talk is to present some recent research on the weighted likelihood estimator (WLE) of ability in item response theory (IRT). This estimator is quite commonly used as an alternative to usual maximum likelihood and Bayesian estimators. However, the uestion of providing finite ability estimates was left unsolved and led to some controversy. Recently, Magis and Verhelst (in press) established that the WLE always returns finite values, independently of the IRT model, the number of items, and the item responses. This general result will be briefly outlined. The finiteness of the WLE has straightforward impact within the field of computerized adaptive testing (CAT). One technical and crucial issue in CAT is to accurately estimate the latent ability at the early stages of the adaptive process, when only a few items are available. Currently heuristic adjustments are adviced to avoid infinite estimates with only a few item responses. In this talk it will be highlighted how the use of the WLE throughout the CAT can be a promising and performant approach to solve this issue. [less ▲]

Seit langem, wenn man über Gruppen spricht, versucht man sie mit einem bestimmenden Merkmal, mit einem Bild, zu verbinden. Demnach, wurde das Bild des Professors mit dem Bild des Gelehrten verbunden, wie Gustave Flaubert (Dictionnaire d’idées reçues, 1913) „Professeur : Toujours savant» ou « Grammairiens : Tous pédants ” getan hat. Aber die Professoren, für die jeden Tag eine öffentliche Rede, ein Schüller-Publikum bedeutet, enthüllen während der Rede ein Selbstbild, das durch und dank dieser Rede geschaffen wird. Dieses Bild kann beginnend mit den Spuren interpretiert werden, die es hinterlässt, kurz gesagt, anhand der Beobachtung des Ethos. Ein von Patrick Charaudeau verwendeten Begriff, das Ethos ist an dem Sprechakt verbunden, wie von Dominique Maingueneau (2002 : en ligne) unterstrichen „l’ethos se montre dans l’acte d’énonciation, il ne se dit pas dans l’énonce ”. Das Bild des Professors, der in einem Unterrichtsraum Unterricht erteilen kann, enthält Besonderheiten, die aus der Rolle und Position resultieren, die er hat, aus dem „Bild”, das er selbst auf dem Internet vorschlägt, das Selbstbild. Dieses Bild ist das Ergebnis der Weise in der er wählt, wie er das Blog und die pädagogischen Strategien baut, die er benutzt. Die Zusammenhänge zwischen den Aspekten der Sprache (in der Sprache des Blogs erkennbar) und die soziallen Aspekte (bemerkbar gleichzeitig mit der Stellung als Professor) sind aber viel mehr komplex und problematisch. Durch die Analyse einiger Professor-Blogs möchten wir beobachten, wie die Professoren durch digitale Netzwerke „ersichtbar werden”, wie die Wahrnehmung des Berufs als Professor verändert hat und was für Veränderungen des vordiskursiven Ethos der Gruppe „der Professoren” aufgetreten haben.

Orange Flowers and Incense to the Glory of the King in the French Festivals of 1622 The communication explores the way in which the festival apparatus establishes a sacred dimension in the ordinary space and time of the city. We consider the immaterial devices of the spectacular apparatus: light, sound, with special attention to the smell, its iconic power and liturgical significance. The study is conducted on the iconographic and textual descriptions of two kind of celebrations which took place during the summer and autumn of 1622 in France: Louis’s triumphal entries following his victories against the Protestant rebels, and the solemnities for canonization of Jesuits Ignatius of Loyola and Francis Xavier, miles of catholic faith between Europe and Asia. In this historical perspective where sacred/secular points converge, these festivals contribute to shape the imago gloriae on the urban space through the ephemeral language of festival and its indelible poli-sensory effect on audience’s memory.
