Lord Byron’s Don Juan is a poem which depends on gendered literary traditions for both its originality and its intelligibility. In the harem episode of cantos V and VI, we can recognise a libertine fantasy, an Orientalist premise, and a picaresque adventure, but also some traces of epic, the gothic and literature of sensibility. Yet, these tropes are consistently complicated in the poem and used to undermine the gendered foundations of their traditions. This essay considers the formulation of such subversions through explicitly literary paradigms: what signs of gender are referred to, and how are they made intelligible as fictional constructs? By interrogating the use of gendered tropes, their formation as intelligible concepts within literary history, and their negotiations with sexualised conventions of narrative, I intend to highlight the discrepancies in the heteronormative construction of these literary paradigms and Byron’s use of them to suggest sexual fluidity.

In the wake of globalization, technological and infrastructural changes have substantially increased the mobility of migrants all over the world. Across Europe these developments have added more variety to migration populations, a fact that has been identified as super-diversity (Vertovec 2007, 2009). Studying linguistic diversity and variation, sociolinguists have begun the examination of language in super-diverse settings, in order to describe the interweaving and meshing of languages, identities, and language practices (Creese & Blackledge 2010, Blommaert & Rampton 2011). One particularly interesting field within which migrants make use of these transnational and ethnic resources is self-employment (Light & Gold 2000). In this professional domain the knowledge of (multiple) languages and ways of communicating has been presented as an asset and a challenge. To date studies that investigate the linguistic life worlds of migrant entrepreneurs in detail are only few in number. Focusing on the border region between Germany and Luxembourg, this paper aims to explore two aspects of the link between language use and self-employment among non-EU migrants. Firstly, I intend to understand the entrepreneurs’ linguistic trajectories into self-employment. Another aim is to explore how the professional endeavour has shaped each migrant’s linguistic repertoire. The analysis is part of a dissertation research project investigating the language practices of non-EU ethnic entrepreneurs. Following the approach of linguistic ethnography (Creese 2008), oral narrative interviews were part of the data generation. The analysis was informed by the study of language biographies as described by Franceschini (2002) with the aim of focusing on the entrepreneurs’ everyday reasons and experiences using and learning languages at and for their professional practices. The results show that for these migrant entrepreneurs the workplace becomes a site of informal acquisition of the majority languages. On the other hand language practices linked to business activities are sites of language maintenance of heritage languages. The data thus reveals patterns of language diversity management that is directly connected to the entrepreneur’s practical, occupational needs. Moreover, it shows the usefulness of employing language biographies as one of the methods to explore language use and learning in super-diverse workplace settings. [less ▲]

Sensing using 3D technologies has seen a revolution in the past years where cost-effective depth sensors are today part of accessible consumer electronics. Their ability in directly capturing depth videos in real-time has opened tremendous possibilities for multiple applications in computer vision. These sensors, however, have major shortcomings due to their high noise contamination, including missing and jagged measurements, and their low spatial resolutions. In order to extract detailed 3D features from this type of data, a dedicated data enhancement is required. We propose a generic depth multi-frame super-resolution framework that addresses the limitations of state-of-the-art depth enhancement approaches. The proposed framework does not need any additional hardware or coupling with di erent modalities. It is based on a new data model that uses densely upsampled low resolution observations. This results in a robust median initial estimation, further refined by a deblurring operation using a bilateral total variation as the regularization term. The upsampling operation ensures a systematic improvement in the registration accuracy. This is explored in different scenarios based on the motions involved in the depth video. For the general and most challenging case of objects deforming non-rigidly in full 3D, we propose a recursive dynamic multi-frame super-resolution algorithm where the relative local 3D motions between consecutive frames are directly accounted for. We rely on the assumption that these 3D motions can be decoupled into lateral motions and radial displacements. This allows to perform a simple local per-pixel tracking where both depth measurements and deformations are optimized. As compared to alternative approaches, the results show a clear improvement in reconstruction accuracy and in robustness to noise, to relative large non-rigid deformations, and to topological changes. Moreover, the proposed approach, implemented on a CPU, is shown to be computationally efficient and working in real-time. [less ▲]

Der vorliegende Beitrag befasst sich mit der Übertragung von Stephen Vertovecs Superdiversitätskonzept auf die Luxemburger Situation. Nach einer knappen Erläuterung des Begriffs werden unterschiedliche Aspekte auf Luxemburg bezogen und kritisch auf ihre Angemessenheit geprüft: historischer und politischer Kontext, demografische Entwicklung, Sprachensituation, Kultur und Religion, Vervielfältigung von Migrantenstatuten. Als vorläufiges Ergebnis kann man festhalten, dass man weder in politischer noch in pädagogischer Hinsicht in Luxemburg an einer Superdiversitätsdebatte vorbeikommt und dass damit auch die sozial- und erziehungswissenschaftliche Forschung an der Universität vor einer entscheidenden Herausforderung steht.

The shell structure of superheavy nuclei is investigated within various parametrizations of relativistic and nonrelativistic nuclear mean-field models. The heaviest known even-even nucleus 156 264Hs108 is used as a benchmark to estimate the predictive value of the models. From that starting point, doubly magic spherical nuclei are searched in the region Z51102140 and N5134–298. They are found at (Z5114 , N5184), (Z5120 , N5172), or at (Z5126 , N5184), depending on the parametrization. [less ▲]
