21st-century digital society poses tremendous challenges for education and assessment. Learners have to understand the complex relations between diverse topics and learn how to learn their entire lives. Concept mapping is a promising approach to address these issues. It is a method that uses concepts connected by labeled links to visualize a semantic network of knowledge. Concept mapping is predestined for a digital approach because it allows for easy interactive editing, innovative test items, and incorporation of multimodal information. Concept mapping is available for summative and formative assessment and, thus, provides the opportunity to become a vital part of modern education. The biggest advantage of concept mapping (i.e., a comprehensive and yet comprehensible visualization of complex relations) also represents the biggest challenge when it comes to assessment with - and scoring of - concept maps. The first challenge is the enormous amount of indicators used for scoring concept maps in assessment. A second challenge comes from the fact that educators using concept mapping in their assessment have to understand and interpret the indicators that are used in scoring concept maps. This presentation reports on a Ph.D. project that investigates digital concept mapping in the context of knowledge assessment from a user experience perspective. The results are based on, first, a comprehensive international systematic literature review on concept map scoring, and second, three empirical studies covering the needs and experiences of learners and educators in concept mapping. It presents key findings from the iterative user experience design of a concept mapping tool as part of the online assessment platform OASYS, an overview of indicators used in concept map scoring, and research opportunities in knowledge assessment with concept maps. Finally, it stresses the value that user experience design brings to knowledge assessment with concept maps. [less ▲]

Social service providers in the Greater Region report that many children in need of special care and social assistance find themselves in cross-border situations. The legal regulations and practices for the care of children and adolescents can vary considerably from country to country. This can cause delays, breaks or deterioration in the quality of support and sometimes irreversibly worsen the child's situation. Depending on the situation, diagnoses and access to social, medical-social or legal services can change considerably. The EURQUA project deals with cross-border child protection and disability rights within a multinational perspective. [less ▲]

Processing high-throughput data-streams has become a major challenge in areas such as real-time event monitoring, complex dataflow processing, and big data analytics. While there has been tremendous progress in distributed stream processing systems in the past few years, the high-throughput and low-latency (a.k.a. high sustainable-throughput) requirement of modern applications is pushing the limits of traditional data processing infrastructures. This paper introduces a new distributed stream data processing engine (DSPE), called “Asynchronous Iterative Routing” or simply AIR, which implements a light-weight, dynamic sharding protocol. AIR expedites a direct and asynchronous communication among all the worker nodes via multiple Message Passing Interface (MPI) communication channels and thereby completely avoids any additional communication overhead with a dedicated master node. With its unique design, AIR scales out to clusters consisting of up to 8 nodes and 224 cores, performing much better than existing DSPEs, and it performs up to 15 times better than Spark and Flink in terms of sustainable-throughput.

In this PhD outline, I will present highlights from my PhD research project on mathematical modelling with real-world information in the classroom, remote teaching and outdoor learning in Luxemburg. Through design-based explanatory studies, I investigated different technology enhanced tasks, learning and teaching settings that could likely engage students in understanding and transferring mathematical modelling to their living environments. The selected design-based research methodology and its characteristics, allowed to adapt task designs, settings and methods during my PhD research project. Hence, firstly, I investigated process skills learning (e.g.: mathematical modelling) with an automated tutoring system (the educational technology software MathemaTIC) within an international project. Although findings were promising, I redesigned my interventions to connect further students mathematical modelling learning to real-world information. Thus, secondly, I performed mathematical modelling tasks with augmented reality on real-world objects in remote teaching and in special needs educations. Utilising findings of these studies and a redesign of the intervention based on outdoor mathematical trails, thirdly, I undertook my final study. In pre-service teacher higher education, I explored outdoor mathematical modelling with an integrated STEAM (Science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics) approach. With the aim of such holistic approach, I collected data on education-related perceptions from different stakeholders of elementary school education (students, parents, in-service, and pre service teachers) and developed conceptual frameworks on task creation, mathematical modelling, and stakeholders' roles. In my PhD research project, I aspired to contribute and explain how in-class learning and teaching could be connected and transferred to mathematical modelling within students living environments. Although there are many crucial moments, method choices and findings within these studies, in this report, I will offer highlights of my PhD work and results. [less ▲]

Lorsque les pratiques multilingues en contexte professionnel international sont encadrées par des politiques linguistiques, elles donnent un point d’ancrage pour mesurer les oscillations entre le « prescrit » et l’«existant ». La caractérisation des pratiques multilingues d’une entreprise aéronautique européenne et de l’UNESCO demande de placer notre recherche à la croisée des champs de la linguistique, de la didactique des langues, de la sociologie, et de la psychologie sociale et cognitive. Nous allons présenter les résultats d’analyse des besoins déclarés par les salariés eux-mêmes, des interactions enregistrées en réunions et aussi des bilans d’entretiens. Ces deux terrains de recherche ont des caractéristiques linguistiques similaires : l’utilisation de l’anglais comme langue véhiculaire, la localisation d’un site à Hambourg en Allemagne, leurs sièges sociaux respectifs en France, des communications régulières avec des sites en zone hispanophone, ainsi que l’offre de cours d’anglais, de français, d’allemand et d’espagnol auprès de leurs employés. La polyphonie des discours sur les pratiques multilingues en entreprise montre les tensions existantes entre le choix de l’usage de l’anglais comme lingua franca et celui du français, de l’allemand et de l’espagnol qui ouvre différents « univers du discours » (Charolles 1997). A partir de la question de cadrage, envisagé au plan linguistique comme au plan sociologique, nous essayons d’établir le lien entre posture professionnelle et pratiques langagières. Il semblerait que les faits de pluri-compétences, de pluri-linguisme, de multi-linguisme et de pluri-activités donnent matière à repenser nos méthodologies d’enseignement des langues. Par ailleurs. La relation d’aide (Amério 1991, Lejot 2014) entre les employés favorise le développement des compétences linguistiques dans la langue cible. Notre objectif est ici de faire un lien entre les besoins linguistiques et culturels identifiés en milieu professionnel et le développement des compétences multilingues en milieu universitaire. La personne bilingue n’est pas une somme de deux personnes monolingues (Grosjean 1989), et au même titre, l’enseignement plurilingue n’est pas une somme d’enseignements monolingues au sein d’une même formation en langues appliquées. Des recherches en linguistiques comparatistes (Huemer, Lejot, Deroey 2019) et des méthodes pédagogiques basées sur l’autonomie de l’étudiant ouvrent des perspectives à explorer ou à approfondir.

The highly linguistically and culturally diverse reality of Luxembourg and its school system pose a great challenge to students, families, and teachers alike. This reality tends to produce one of the largest differences in reading performance between Luxembourgish and language minority children compared to other countries (PISA, 2019), which creates inequalities in students’ academic trajectory. Translanguaging as a pedagogy has been established to overcome these inequalities by disrupting language hierarchies and giving language minority children a space and voice to learn and prosper (García, 2019). To address the inequalities and help implement a translanguaging pedagogy in preschool, our project : (1) offered a professional development course in translanguaging to 40 teachers, (2) involves children’s parents to foster home-school collaboration through questionnaires and interviews, and (3) cultivates children’s linguistic, cognitive, and socio-emotional engagement in the classroom through linguistic tests and video observations. We also used focus groups and questionnaires at the beginning and the end of the course. The 18-hour course in Translanguaging (June to December 2019) aimed to challenge the teachers’ perception about multilingualism and equality in their classroom. Through the preliminary results of the focus groups, questionnaires and field notes, we were able to observe some positive changes in the teachers’ attitudes and beliefs about their language minority children such as realizing that language is a tool of communication. Teachers were also more positive about home-school collaboration. However, despite our continuous creative efforts, some teachers still maintained their traditional monolingual stance and conviction of parents’ lack of education and interest. Most of the teachers did, however, not completely overcome a monolingual bias and this remains our main focus in the remaining points and follow-ups of our project. References García, O. (2019).

Alors que l’an dernier étaient célébrés les 50 ans du réseau ARPANET et les 30 ans du World Wide Web, ces anniversaires étaient l’occasion de revenir largement sur les fondements du « réseau des réseaux ». Ce retour aux sources permettait de prendre la mesure des changements intervenus, mais aussi de continuités certaines, ainsi que de valeurs séminales qui sont régulièrement convoquées dans les débats contemporains. Cette intervention se propose de revisiter les héritages des débuts d’Internet et du Web en trois temps : celui de la mémoire, de la nostalgie et de la reconstruction d’un âge d’or d’abord. Ensuite nous aborderons les héritages et patrimoines matériels et immatériels de ces premières communications en réseaux, notamment le patrimoine nativement numérique (Born-Digital Heritage) que sont les archives du Web et les newsgroups de la communauté Usenet. Enfin nous nous intéresserons à la réactualisation récurrente de controverses nées dès les premiers âges du Web, voire en amont (en termes d’anonymisation, régulation, rôle des intermédiaires, neutralité, etc.).

Numerous scholars advocate for translanguaging pedagogies to increase participation and learning opportunities for all students, in particular students with a migration background (Rosiers, Van Lancker, & Delarue, 2018). Conversely, critics argue that translanguaging can contribute to reiterate unequal participation dynamics and question the equitable access to curricular resources (Hamman, 2018). While most qualitative studies draw on observations of classroom practices of the teachers and/or the students, only few consider the students’ perspectives on these practices. The present paper aims to address this issue. While my doctoral project explores the translanguaging practices of four fourth-graders of different backgrounds and their development over time, this paper investigates their perspectives on translanguaging. From January to December 2018, I observed the students’ interactions with their peers and teachers in Years 4 and 5 and identified and recorded key events. Subsequently, selected events were shown to and discussed with the students. Findings based on recordings from discussions and stimulated recall interviews revealed, first, that translanguaging was the default mode of communication of all four students and was perceived as a common practice. Second, the newcomers reported that they translanguaged to communicate quicker and that translanguaging was particularly frequent in students who were not yet proficient language users. Similarly, students with more experience in the education system perceived translanguaging as an inferior practice and indicated using their home language as a scaffold with other students, but not with their teachers. The students’ self-monitoring connects to the classroom practices. [less ▲]

In the past decade, we have witnessed a shift from technological determinism to more attention to the methodological and epistemological changes in historical research which the digital turn has brought about. This talk will focus on how the practice of doing history has changed in the digital age against the background of broader historical developments in the so-called digital humanities. I will argue that, in many ways, hybridity, seen at its most basic level as the integration of 'traditional' and 'digital' approaches, is the new normal for most historians. However, when more broadly conceptualised as the integration of newly emerging tools, technologies, materials, and/or practices in historical research, it also becomes clear that hybridity has a long and often unacknowledged history that predates the advent of computers – analog and digital. Against this backdrop, the first part of my talk traces this unacknowledged history and the debates accompanying the (wo)man-machine encounter in the historical research process more generally. As I will argue, this encounter needs to be qualified according to its most elementary phases (data & information gathering, processing, analysis, and dissemination). Crucially, the speed, enthusiasm, and rate of the uptake of new technologies differs, and has always differed, significantly across these phases. In the second half of the talk, I will then offer a concrete example of these insights by using my research on the diaries of Anne Frank as a case study and will demonstrate the hybrid nature of today's historical research process, both as a reality and potentiality. Exploring the longue durée of the impact of new technologies on the practice of history is not to deny the specificity of the current moment but helps us to see how 'digital' has now come to affect the entire historical profession in ways unseen before. Indeed, technology has become inescapable, even if many historians refuse to acknowledge the fact and remain reluctant to embrace it. Yet, we can only truly ground our current 'digital' practices, and learn from past experiences and expertise, by contextualising and qualifying what is new and what is not. The real challenge for our profession now is to take a mental leap forward and be consciously hybrid, to acknowledge that 'digital' is not merely complementary but integral to the practice of doing history, and purposely reflect its implications.

Point collocation is the oldest way to solve partial differential equations. Methods based on collocation have been studied since decades and many variations have been proposed over the years. More recently, those methods have shown a greater interest thanks to the advances in computing hardware. The collocation methods offer a great flexibility with regards to the discretization of a defined domain and the approximation of the field derivatives. This presentation will introduce the bases of the collocation methods and of the generalized finite difference method. The importance of the selection of the nodes involved in the approximation of the field derivatives will then be presented. Finally two aspects for which the method is particularly attractive will be detailed: the solution of a PDE from a given geometry with minimum discretization effort and the adaptivity of a model based on a posteriori error estimation.

A neoliberal and globally organized social work is the focus of this presentation, which discusses the very first results of an transnational research project on cross-border child protection and disability rights in the Greater Region including Belgium, Germany, France and Luxembourg (EUR&QUA) According to UN Conventions (UNCRC, 1990 and UNCRPD, 2006), States Parties shall ensure and promote the full realisation of all human rights and fundamental freedoms for all children and persons with disabilities. Essentially, the Conventions call upon States Parties to take legislative, administrative and other measures to implement the rights recognised in both Conventions. Such imperatives seem to contradict a neoliberal social policy, which is oriented towards restraint in market intervention, strict austerity and cost reduction, and individualisation of social problems (Cummins, 2018). Actually, initial research results suggest that cross-border social work care for children and their families is not always sufficient. Crossing the border often means breaking off helping relations in the home country and there is hardly any professional exchange between social work providers involved. As a result, a return to the original life context desired by the clients seems hardly feasible (EUR&QUA 2019). Furthermore, practitioners expressed concern that diagnoses and support needs were formulated with a targeted focus on care in a neighbouring country. The research also identified cases that were not in line with the Brussels-II-Treaty on cross-border custody procedures. Some results may be derived less from optimal child protection and disability rights than from neo-liberalism, managerialism and austerity. In order to counter this development, social work needs something like Machiavellian competences (Kusiak, 2018; Drouard, 2008), which consist of critically illuminating a dominant ideology, conducting empirical research and acquiring the corresponding strategic knowledge. To this end, the research project aims to establish a Master's programme to empower future social worker in cross-boarder protection tasks. [less ▲]

In her book “Arbitrary Rule. Slavery, Tyranny, and the Power of Life and Death”, the author Mary Nyquist describes the pairing of slavery and tyranny as "political slavery” and distinguishes it from the institution of slavery. She shows how the concept of political slavery has been used to describe political oppression since ancient times. Terms from the field of slavery were used by opposition groups to identify the tyrant. Nyquist also analyses the persistence of this concept and traces back its use in political philosophy and in literature from Greek and Roman antiquity to the early modern period. Political slavery became part of the tyrant topos. Authors from Late Antiquity give us many examples of how firmly images of slavery were rooted in the minds of contemporaries and how these images were incorporated into literary tradition and political discourse. Images from the world of slavery were applied in a wide variety of contexts, from criticism of an emperor's behavior or illustrating his loss of authority to characterizing the relationship between two emperors at a time when power was divided between pairs or quartets of emperors. The lecture will show how the presentation and perception of emperors of Late Antiquity, such as Diocletian and his co-emperors, were influenced by narratives from the world of slavery. [less ▲]

The present contribution seeks to advance psychological approaches in inclusion of persons with a disability or health condition in decent work. People with disabilities and mental ill health appear to be among the most neglected groups when it comes to integration into the labour market (ILO, 2018; WHO, 2011). Article 27 of the CRPD emphasises equal access to the labour market as a governmental obligation and obliges signatory states to take appropriate measures (CRPD, 2006). However, specific programmes and measures to promote the employment of people with disabilities based on a human image of "protean career attitude" (Fugate, Kinicki, & Ashforth, 2004) often achieve only moderate success despite the involvement of psychological services, as shown by the example of national concepts in Luxembourg (Limbach-Reich, 2019). Searching for reasons one can identify two main strands which, on the one hand, concern the perspective of people with disabilities in sheltered workshops with regard to the general labour market and, on the other hand, appear in the employers' insufficient recruitment practice (WHO, 2011). As the present study shows, for the majority of people in sheltered workshops this form of employment is the more attractive alternative under the given circumstances. Inclusion in the first labour market is only sought by a minority. The reasons given for the preference for a protected employment status are overstrain and negative experiences on the first labour market. At the same time, in an increasingly neo-liberal employment market, the willingness to employ people with disabilities seems to be only slightly pronounced. The majority of the population of disabled workers in a workshop are not considered attractive for the existing labour market, as they do not correspond to the propagated image of the individual oriented towards career advancement, entrepreneurship aspiration and self-optimisation (Seithe, 2013). In conclusion, it is demanded that psychology should review prevailing neoliberal assumptions about the human behaviour and become more politically involved. In particular, psychology has to ask itself whether, by pursuing inclusion in the labour market exclusively, it fails and contributes to blaming the victims, especially those with mental and psychological disabilities. If in the future there are fewer and fewer people available for paid work and unconditional basic income will rise (Harari, 2015; Kela, 2019), then psychology, in cooperation with other disciplines, must also face up to the challenges and develop approaches that make psychological well-being and self-actualisation possible beyond the overarching neoliberal employment rigor.

Ce travail présente aux participants les zones de tension dans le travail social qui surgissent avec la mise en œuvre de la CRDPH (La Convention relative aux droits des personnes handicapées, 2006). Sur le plan conceptuel, on examinera si le concept central « l'inclusion » convient comme concept directeur pour le travail social. En ce qui concerne le Luxembourg, des exemples sont utilisés pour montrer à quel point le travail social avec les personnes handicapées est soumis à une politique sociale empreinte de néolibéralisme. Dans une approche prospective, les tendances d'une économisation, de la numérisation et de la prise en compte épigénétique des tâches du travail social sont discutées. Comment le travail social doit-il traiter cette problématique et s'y préparer ? [less ▲]

This paper deals with a question that is becoming increasingly important for historians who work with digitised cultural heritage: what are the politics of digitisation and what are its implications for historical research? Is the often-lauded democratising potential of digitisation also offset by risks, inherent in selection processes that might privilege the digitisation of heritage corresponding to existing national master narratives, the availability of funding and/or the priorities set by cultural policies and certain research agendas? How does transnational heritage fit into this picture when most digitisation projects are, in one way or another, nationally framed? What biases can digital archives introduce in our work and how does that differ from issues of bias and selection in the ‘paper’ archive? In discussing these questions, I will provide a couple of examples before emphasising the importance of more transparency in this regard and the need for guidelines about how digital archives are constituted. A key point to highlight is that professional historians can and should be more open to learn from the experience of digital archivists and librarians who are at the forefront of the digital turn in heritage work.

Let K be a number field, and let G be a finitely generated and torsion-free subgroup of K*. For almost all primes p of K, we consider the order of the cyclic group (G mod p), and ask whether this number lies in a given arithmetic progression. The density of primes for which this condition holds exists (this generalizes a result of Ziegler from 2006) and it is, under certain assumptions, a computable positive rational number. We also present a uniformity property concerning some special cases. This is a joint work with A. Perucca. [less ▲]

In this work, we present our preliminary results on the 6-way coupling of 3 numerical solvers: XDEM for the Discrete Element Method (DEM), OpenFOAM for Computation Fluid Dynamics (CFD), and deal.II for Finite Element Method (FEM). We relied on the existing preCICE adapters for OpenFOAM and deal.II and we have implemented a new preCICE adapter for the eXtended Discrete Element Method (XDEM), an innovative DEM software developed at the University of Luxembourg. The XDEM adapter permits coupling of the particulate phase of DEM with CFD and FEM: - DEM+FEM is a surface coupling that performs the exchange of surface forces and displacement between the particles and a deformable solid; - DEM+CFD is a volume coupling that performs the exchange of porosity, momentum, drag force and buoyancy between the particles and the fluid. Put together with the pre-existing CFD+FEM coupling, we obtain a 6-way coupled multi-physics solver for particles, fluid and deformable solids. We have tested and evaluated our multi-physics solver on the tutorial case “Cylinder with a flap” derived from the benchmarking case of Turek and Hron, that we extended to include a particulate phase solved by XDEM.

In the line of women who have helped build Europe, Luxembourg’s Viviane Reding (born on 27 April 1951 in Esch-sur-Alzette) is a key figure. After her studies, including a PhD in Human Science at Paris Sorbonne University, she worked as a journalist at the Luxemburger Wort for more than 20 years and chaired the Luxembourg Union of Journalists. She joined the Christian Social People’s Party (CSV) and was elected to the Luxembourg Chamber of Deputies (1979-1989 and since 2018), where she particularly focused on social affairs and international relations, before becoming a Member of the European Parliament for three terms (1981-1999 and 2014-2018) and turning her attention to social affairs, employment and the working environment, as well as civil liberties.

The globalisation of the digital economy is indicative of a changing multidimensional paradigm driven by a number of factors: the primacy of intangible assets in value creation; a growing transnational and international dimension in the production and consumption of goods and services; the transition from human labour to artificial intelligence; the increasing dominance of networks of stakeholders over individual players; the emergence of new forms of sharing, creation, collaboration and innovation; and the need to harmonise rules, standards and policies (including in the area of taxation) within a multilateral framework. In a competitive geopolitical environment, the EU, characterised by disparities between its Member States and sometimes opposing national interests, is some way behind China and the uncontested leader of the digital pack, the United States. But Europe can carve out a place for itself alongside these digital giants, since it outperforms its competitors in some sectors of the DSM. These include the production of digital services (the main driver of digital globalisation) and the digital consumption of financial operations. [less ▲]

Si les historien-ne-s se sont d’abord intéressé-es à l’histoire d’Internet avant celle du World Wide Web, la recherche dédiée au Web s’est développée ces dernières années, en lien avec un intérêt croissant pour les usages et les cultures numériques. Les archives du Web ont également contribué à stimuler l’intérêt pour la Toile et cette intervention se propose de revenir sur ces jalons historiographiques récents et majeurs. Aussi nous interrogerons en trois temps les territoires balisés, mais aussi les opportunités qui s’ouvrent pour l’histoire du Web : après avoir considéré les recherches liées aux « temps pionniers » et au World Wide Web en tant qu’innovation socio-technique, seront abordés les travaux portant sur le « Web en contexte » (et notamment à l’échelle nationale). Enfin, le « Web en société » et ses cultures numériques sont également devenus un terrain d’étude fécond, pour lequel nous développerons également quelques exemples et pistes de recherche. Ces trois axes invitent à penser l’écriture d’une histoire qui nous parle autant du Web du passé que du présent de la recherche. [less ▲]

Placing the design and use of computing devices into a broader context, I focus on the societal, business, and labour developments at the basis of new computer models. One of five carefully selected case studies considers the use of Powers-Samas and later I.C.T. punched card equipment in accounting at the Helena Rubinstein make-up concern in London during the 1950s. For each case my research looks into changes in occupations after the introduction of new computer models, as well as its influence on the work space and workflow of employees. Finally, I study gender stereotypes in advertisements of the computers, and in this case of the punched card equipment. During the Work in Progress session I will briefly introduce my overall research approach and demonstrate which sources are available, and what is still missing for the punched card equipment case study.

In this workshop contribution, I present my post-doctoral study within the "Doing Experimental Media Archaeology" (DEMA) research project in which I examine the genealogy of home cinema and amateur moviemaking as early-twentieth century practices by means of a comparative, intermedial and experimental media archaeological approach. Through hands-on media archaeological experiments with the Kinora, one of the first motion picture viewing and recording technologies designed for home use from the 1900s, and various “small-gauge” film technologies from the 1920s and early 1930s, including Pathé-Baby 9.5mm and Kodak 16mm film cameras and projectors, two different “dispositifs” of home cinema and amateur moviemaking will be explored and compared. Various hands-on experiments will be conducted to provide a better understanding of the materiality and functionality of the Kinora and small-gauge film technologies as historical media objects as well as their technological affordances and performative qualities. The study aims to contribute to the development of experimental media archaeology as an alternative, experimental and sensorial approach to media historiography. [less ▲]

Presentation of the Luxatlas.lu website, developed by the VILLUX project. This University of Luxembourg project, co-financed by the City of Luxembourg, provides an interactive digital tool that traces the history of the city of Luxembourg and illustrates the stages of its development over the last 200 years. The historical town atlas is an innovative research tool to gain knowledge about the urban development, its conditions and characteristics and the underlying economic, social and political conditions. It brings together a collection of maps, explanatory texts, and chronological tables and images, which all trace the history of the city and illustrate the stages of its development. The digital and interactive historical atlas makes available research findings from a variety of disciplines such as history and geography and combines relevant information and data from national authorities and cultural institutions. It therefore provides a better understanding of the historical process of change from the 19th to the 20th centuries, including the histories of buildings, streets, neighbourhoods and urban quarters.

My doctoral thesis focuses on eight children’s multilingual practices in the four institutions participating in the MuLiPEC research project, more precisely on their (trans)languaging and agency in interaction with peers and practitioners. Guided by a sociocultural perspective on language learning and child agency and inspired by the methodology of linguistic ethnography, I drew on multidimensional qualitative research methods to understand the relationship between multilingual pedagogies, language learning, translanguaging and child agency. The data resulted in 65 days of participant observations (including fieldnotes and discussions), 473 video-recordings and 16 semi-structured interviews with the practitioners. The findings show that the children engaged in translanguaging practices for various purposes (e.g. communication, meaning making) and showed an agentive behaviour that went beyond active participation (e.g. influencing adults’ language practices). I argue that the practitioners’ multilingual practices and other sociocultural factors enabled the children’s agency and flexible language use. [less ▲]

Der Vortrag widmet sich dem Ursprung fester Grenzlinien auf Karten. Ausgehend von den ersten, noch punktuellen Erwähnungen Luxemburgs auf mittelalterlichen Karten wird der Frage nachgegangen, ab wann erstmals Grenzlinien zur Darstellung territorial-räumlicher Verhältnisse verwendet wurden und welche Rolle ihnen bei der Konstruktion von Herrschaft im Raum zukommt. Denn die tatsächlichen territorialpolitischen Verhältnisse waren noch bis zum Ende der frühen Neuzeit derart unübersichtlich und verworren, dass eine feste lineare Grenzziehung eigentlich nicht möglich war. Die Territorialkarten des 16. und 17. Jahrhunderts täuschen deshalb eine flächige Staatlichkeit des Herzogtums Luxemburg und der benachbarten Territorien vor, die es so eigentlich nicht gab. Dennoch prägen sie unser Bild der historischen Landschaft bis heute. [less ▲]
