What was/is European security in the context of the Cold War? How was and is it conceived? What role did “non-powers” play in European security, and how did they help define it? These were the main questions discussed during the conference held by the C²DH in March 2017. This edited volume brings together the final, peer-reviewed contributions of the participants, and brings them together in a common publication. [less ▲]

Most geotechnical design codes and books use the equations of Meyerhof or Terzaghi to calculate shallow foundations. These equations are based on the failure mechanism published by Prandtl for shallow strip foundations. The common idea is that failure of a footing occurs in all cases according to a Prandtl-wedge failure mechanism. To check the failure mechanism and the equations of the currently used bearing capacity factors and correction factors, a large number of finite-element calculations of strip and circular footings have been made. The finite-element calculations show that in cases of soils with high friction angles, soils without cohesion or a surcharge, footings with inclined loading or circular footings, not the Prandtl-wedge failure mechanism, but other failure mechanisms occur. In addition, the currently used equations for the bearing capacity factors and correction factors are too high. Therefore, new equations have been presented in this article. For some correction factors, for example, the inclination factors and the cohesion slope factor, an analytical solution is found. [less ▲]

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 ▲]

„Die Liebe verwundet, die Liebe fesselt, die Liebe macht krank, die Liebe lässt schwach werden.“ Dieser ursprünglich theologisch geprägte Gedanke über die Gewalt der Liebe, lässt sich – auf seinen bildlichen Kern reduziert – in zahllosen Varianten in der Weltliteratur aufspüren. Eine besonders auffällige Form scheinen dabei jene Texte zu bieten, die Liebe nicht allein als Auslöser, sondern gar selbst als Krankheit darstellen – zumindest implizit, insofern der Zustand des Verliebtseins mit dem Zustand der Krankheit gleichgesetzt wird. Wohl bekannt sind die körperlichen Symptome dieses Liebeszustandes, die in ihrer klassischen Ausprägung im Erbleichen, Erröten, Zittern, in Sprachlähmung sowie im Bluten aus der Nase bestehen und im Mittelalter als minnesiech bezeichnet werden. Erscheint die Liebeskrankheit im Minnesang noch vornehmlich in metaphorischem Gebrauch (s. das gequälte Herz als Beispiel für den Schmerz der Minne), weisen spätere Wörterbucheinträge (vgl. hierzu die Lemmata ‚Liebesfieber’ oder ‚Jungfernkrankheit’) wiederum auf ein stärker körperlich-physiologisches und auch sexuell-erotisches Verständnis von Liebe hin. Krank macht die Minne nun vor allem – und dem mittelalterlichen medizinischen Duktus der Humoralpathologie folgend – dann, wenn das körperliche Begehren nicht befriedigt werden kann. Der hier skizzierte Vortrag will die Vorstellung von Krankheit in einem größeren semantischen Beziehungsgeflecht in den Blick nehmen, das sich in der mhd. Lyrik in bedeutender Weise hervortut: der Verbindung Liebe – Krankheit – Wahn. Der wân als zentrales Symptom der Minnekrankheit löst – so die hier zu erprobende These –den Geist vom versehrten Körper und definiert damit den Übergang von der körperlichen Krankheit(smetapher) zu einer seelischen Zustandsbeschreibung. Die sprachhistorische Herleitung von mhd. wân vermag diese Beobachtung weiter zu untermauern, insofern der Begriff ein zunächst wertneutrales, semantisch vielfältiges Bedeutungsspektrum impliziert, und sich mit ‚Hoffnung, Zuversicht oder Einbildungskraft’ ins Nhd. übertragen ließe. Im krankhaften Minne-wân öffnen sich Denkräume, denen der Minnesang eine literarische Ausgestaltung verleiht; Minne-wân führt damit nicht nur zu körperlicher Versehrtheit, sondern ist eben auch guoter wân, lieber wân, saelden wân – und damit einer der ersten ‚Testräume’ für die Erprobung gedanklicher Spielarten des lyrischen Ichs in der deutschen Dichtung überhaupt.

This presentation focuses on the relationship between the language policy, language ideologies and language practices in a nursery class in trilingual Luxembourg. Individual multilingualism is an educational goal in Luxembourg, a small country in central Europe, and, thus, children learn Luxembourgish from the compulsory nursery school, become literate in German in Year 1 and learn oral and written French from Year 2 and Year 3, respectively. Currently, 62.4% of the children do not speak Luxembourgish on school entry (MENJE 2016). Many speak Portuguese, French or a language of the Balkans. As a result, educational policies focus on the teaching of Luxembourgish from preschool, sometimes at the expense of other languages. Gretsch and Kirsch (2015) developed the app iTEO in order to promote innovative teaching methods that capitalize on the children’s diverse language resources and that promote a dynamic view of bilingualism. This ipad app, which allows for the recording and editing of oral speech, was designed with social-constructivist theories and Bakhtin’s theory of dialogism in mind. This case-study presents the ways in which a preschool teacher’s ideological beliefs influence a child’s language use over a period of two years leading to the child’s understanding of the legitimacy of translanguaging. The focus lies on the interplay between the educational policy focusing on the teaching of Luxembourgish, the teacher’s language ideologies rooted in her multilingual identity and in societal multilingualism, and the child’s experiences of separating languages at home (Kirsch, 2014). The data stem from a qualitative, longitudinal study using a multi-method approach. The study shows that dialogue between teachers, parents, children, policy-makers and researchers can contribute to shifting ideologies and to opening up dynamic languaging spaces. [less ▲]

After World War II, as Europe floundered economically, British Prime Minister Clement Attlee looked to disengage Britain from some of its broad international obligations and increase American support for its new foreign agenda. One place he sought to do so was in Greece, which was in the midst of a civil war. Through an in-depth study of Anglo-American diplomacy in Greece from 1946-50, Spero Simeon Z. Paravantes reveals how the relationship between Britain and the US developed in this formative period. He argues that, in many ways, Britain used the fast-escalating tensions of (what would become) the Cold War to direct and manipulate US policy in Greece, encouraging the Americans to take a more active role and (essentially) take Britain's place in the region. In the process, he sheds fresh light onto how the American experience in Greece contributed to the formulation of the Truman Doctrine, the infamous NSC-68 document and the ultimate birth of the Cold War. Drawing on a wide range of sources from Britain, the US, Greece and across the Balkans, Paravantes has produced the first book to focus on this crucial period in such close detail, and reveals the ways in which various foreign and domestic concerns coincided at a pivotal moment of twentieth century history. This book is essential reading for all scholars looking to gain fresh insight into post-WWII Greece, the Anglo-American alliance and the complex origins of the Cold War. [less ▲]
