This book offers new perspectives on Luxembourg history after 1940 focusing on lived experiences on the one hand and representations of gender in various media, on the other. It contains 27 articles. Some authors explore the significance of gender in politics, education and the arts (music, literature and film). Others investigate gender stereotypes in school books, advertisement, television and magazines. The book presents gender identities that transcend the male/female binary, yet shows that the latter remains hegemonial in many domains. [less ▲]

At the 12th FIEP European Congress in Luxembourg, leading researchers and educationalists from all over Europe and beyond addressed current challenges and developments in the field of physical education. The present book includes contributions from all keynote speakers, as well as from the invited symposia hosted by international umbrella organizations, such as FIEP, the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE), the European Physical Education Association (EUPEA), the European Primary Physical Education Network (EPPEN) or the International Federation for Adapted Physical Activity (IFAPA). Furthermore, selected contributions to the parallel oral sessions and the FIEP New Leaders Program were included. All the contributions focus on the following congress key topics: • Physical Education in Early Childhood and Primary Education • Physical Education in Secondary Education • Physical Literacy • Physical Education Teacher Education • Physical Education and Physical Activity in Active School Communities • Intercultural Learning and Inclusion in Physical Education • Physical Education and New Technologies [less ▲]

We report a comprehensive cartography of selective responses to visual letters and words in the human ventral occipito-temporal cortex (VOTC) with direct neural recordings, clarifying key aspects of the neural basis of reading. Intracerebral recordings were performed in a large group of patients (n = 37) presented with visual words inserted periodically in rapid sequences of pseudofonts, nonwords, or pseudowords, enabling classification of responses at three levels of word processing: letter, prelexical, and lexical. While letter-selective responses are found in much of the VOTC, with a higher proportion in left posterior regions, prelexical/lexical responses are confined to the middle and anterior sections of the left fusiform gyrus. This region overlaps with and extends more anteriorly than the visual word form area typically identified with functional magnetic resonance imaging. In this region, prelexical responses provide evidence for populations of neurons sensitive to the statistical regularity of letter combinations independently of lexical responses to familiar words. Despite extensive sampling in anterior ventral temporal regions, there is no hierarchical organization between prelexical and lexical responses in the left fusiform gyrus. Overall, distinct word processing levels depend on neural populations that are spatially intermingled rather than organized according to a strict postero-anterior hierarchy in the left VOTC.

Unemployment is widely described as a situation that engenders stress, malaise, and a loss of identity for those affected by it. Whereas the deleterious effects of unemployment are clear, people may also develop an alternative relationship to unemployment and hold other perceptions of this transition period. Some studies have indeed pointed toward a shift in the social work norm, whereas others have questioned the negative impact of unemployment on some individuals. Yet to date, few studies have directly focused on the process through which these other, less negative perceptions of unemployment may arise. The present article thus explores one possible experience that we have termed unemployment normalization. We conceptualize unemployment normalization as an emotional regulation process based on cognitive reappraisal. This article suggests some variables that may influence it and presents a roadmap for future research. [less ▲]

This Thesis is the first PhD thesis written about CoSFB-Dowels. Therefore, focus of the scientific work presented here, was on the identification of parameters influencing the load-bearing behaviour in general and on parameters contributing to the load-bearing capacity of CoSFB-Dowels in detail. A CoSFB-Dowel is an innovative shear connector for steel-concrete composite slim-floor beams. It consists of circular openings drilled in the web of the steel section with reinforcement bars passing through and filled with normal concrete in-situ. Push-out tests have been performed already in an earlier research project initiated by the author. In this Thesis, detailed analysis of the test results was done and a finite element model developed simulating the push-out tests, which led to an improved understanding of the overall load-bearing behaviour. Further, the numerical model was used to identify and to evaluate components contributing to the stiffness, to the linear-elastic load and to the maximum load. The findings of this research led to the formulation of a mechanical model and an analytical method to evaluate the load-bearing capacity of a CoSFB-Dowel. The analytical method was validated with the test results. This Thesis is concluded by a proposal allowing for a conservative determination of the design resistance of CoSFB-Dowels. [less ▲]
