  • This book examines the social and spatial dimensions of dwelling from the perspective of sustainability. This publication avoids the traditional energy and technological dimensions of sustainability to position the notion of sustainable dwelling at the crossroads of spatial polyvalence and residents' empowerment. In the field of housing, this publication identifies the recurrent properties of 'sustainable space' and the variety of the socio-cultural practices that can embody them. Its purpose is to comprehend how the concept of sustainability is reflected in housing spaces as well as to analyse how inhabitants put those spaces to the test.

  • In this book a group of 9 Elders from Loacan share their life stories to Jazil Tamang, Esther Pistola and Gliseria Magapin who interviewed them between 2012 and 2016. The book is the first volume of a series devoted to Ibaloy culture and traditions. It is available in Nabaloy and in English.

  • This publication is the volume 2 of a series dealing with the culture and traditions of the Ibaloy of Upper Loacan (Itogon, Benguet, Philippines). It is available in Nabaloy and in English. Elders share their stories to a group of youngsters who ask them questions on a variety of topics such as rituals, prohibitions and spirits. The book provides the verbatim accounts of these conversations recorded during a workshop that took place at the Senior-Citizen hall in 2017.

  • The first part of the book relates to lectures given by local researchers. The second part concerns the tentative designs and resilience in the face of modern challenges. Again, the proposals at  Naples's persistence in hosting Europe's historical richness through time, and its great diversity of people and uses throughout space. Perhaps because it was the last stop on the Grand Tour, surely because its beauty is highly seductive, one cannot remain indifferent to the millennial city of Naples. Naples, where students and professors from urbanism, architecture, architectural engineering and design from Northern and Southern European universities met twice a year between 2013 and 2018 to capture the qualities of Naples's specific territory and respond to the contemporary situation.

  • Dans la construction historique du problème social que constitue la violence juvénile, le rôle de l'expertise est primordial. L'expert, agissant au coeur ou à la lisière du système institutionnel de protection de la jeunesse, peut être celui qui recueille et met en forme l'expression de cette violence. De ce fait, il contribue à l'extension de sa définition : violence physique, mais aussi psychique, voire symbolique. Les experts dépassent alors la posture du simple diagnostic pour s'inscrire dans une démarche de soin et de réhabilitation sociale. Depuis le XIXe siècle, médecins, psychiatres, puis psychologues, pédagogues, sociologues et anthropologues, ont investi la question de la jeunesse irrégulière, contribuant ainsi à la définition d'une population-cible pour les politiques publiques.

  • L'enseignement en immersion connaît un succès spectaculaire en Communauté française. Il règne cependant encore pas mal d'incertitude et tant les parents que les écoles se posent de nombreuses questions quant à ce type d'enseignement bilingue. Quels sont les avantages et les inconvénients de l'enseignement en immersion? Les élèves en immersion accusent-ils un retard dans le développement de leur langue maternelle? L'immersion n'est-elle pas une forme élitiste d'enseignement? Quel est le rôle des parents dans le processus d'apprentissage;? Par ailleurs, les enseignants expriment un énorme besoin d'une didactique appropriée et de matériel spécifique pour les classes en immersion. Ils doivent cependant souvent se débrouiller seuls...
    Les départements d'études néerlandaises de l'UCL et des Facultés Notre-Dame de la Paix à Namur ont voulu répondre à ces questionnements en organisant le 20 mars 2010 - en collaboration avec le Taaluniecentrum NVT (Bruxelles) - la journée d'études 'Met immersie aan de slag/Au travail, en immersion'.

  • En Guatemala son pocos los espacios de relexión y discusión inter y transdisciplinaria que abordan la problemática del ordenamiento territorial y su relación con las comunidades rurales y urbanas. Sin embargo, es fundamental conocer los avances e innovaciones en la construcción de conocimientos locales que busquen contribuir a la solución de dicha problemática. Fruto de un Seminario internacional organizado en el mes de septiembre del 2013 en la Ciudad de Quetzaltenango, este libro responde al desafío de difusión de conocimientos y de apertura a la discusión desde y en los territorios guatemaltecos. Igualmente se trata de un trabajo que se nutre de experiencias internacionales. Los artículos que componen este libro presentan estudios de casos rurales o urbanos. Estos cuestionan las políticas de gestión territorial, al mismo tiempo que examinan su reapropiación o creación en la escala local.

  • The aim of this volume is to present an overview of current trends and individual methodological attempts towards arriving at an adequate understanding of Minoan, Cycladic, and Mycenaean iconography. In the archaeology of the Aegean Bronze Age our approaches and methods of analysing and interpreting pictorial images have changed throughout recent decades, and the questions we pose to the iconographic material have increased in complexity. As a consequence, the aim of this volume is to present an overview of current trends and individual methodological attempts towards arriving at an adequate understanding of Minoan, Cycladic, and Mycenaean iconography. Scholars active in this field of research have each contributed an article on a specific artistic object, an individual image, or a group of artefacts and their iconography, in order to illustrate the methodology they use in dealing with Aegean images and their wider context. The focus lies on the presentation of new, previously unpublished or neglected material from recent or old excavations, new reconstructions and interpretations of long-known artistic objects as well as superordinate pictorial subjects. The contributions focus on prominent artistic media such as seal images (on seals, signet-rings, and sealings) and mural paintings yet also include other artistic genera such as metal inlay work, relief images, pictorial pottery, and terracotta fi gurines. This collection of 18 case studies provides a representative crosssection that portrays up-to-date research on analysing and interpreting the iconography of the Aegean Bronze Age. This volume therefore makes visible current scholarly approaches and simultaneously provides new perspectives into Aegean iconography.

  • This collection of papers explores whether the Lévi-Straussian notion of the House is a valid concept in aiding the comprehension of the social structure of Bronze Age Aegean societies. The main question that is addressed is whether there was a specific social institution or definable group that, through its materialisation, differentiated itself from other social units, such as nuclear families. While little agreement was reached, the volume succeeds in stressing the advances made in the study of social structure of the Aegean on the basis of material remains. Moreover, the discussions presented demonstrate that the House as an analytical unit allows a better understanding of what on Crete has usually been called 'the elite' - an anonymous group of people with shared values and practices. It is the contention of the editors that such an interpretation of the basal social structure may help understand the unique emergence, development and character of Minoan society, as well as its distinctive material culture.Apart from a general introduction by Jan Driessen and Maria Relaki, the first part of the volume deals with Minoan Crete starting with Quentin Letesson & Jan Driessen presenting a diachronic overview of the House in Minoan society, and followed by papers that present case-studies of the Prepalatial (Simona Todaro; Yiannis Papadatos) and Neopalatial period (Dario Puglisi; Carl Knappett ; Emmanouela Apostolaki; Pietro Militello, Orazio Palio & Marianna Figuera ; Chrysa Sofi anou & Thomas Brogan ; Eleni Gerontakou, Maria Kyritsi & Alexandra Salichou). In addition, specialised studies deal with ritual practice (Christine Morris & Alan Peatfi eld), signet rings and seals (Sarah Finlayson; Anna Simandiraki-Grimshaw) and the political transformations after the destruction of the New Palaces (Eleni Hatzaki). The last part of the volume comprises two papers (Artemis Karnava & Irene Nikolakopoulou ; Evi Gorogianni) that address social structure on the islands of Santorini and Kea while papers by Stratos Nanoglou, Kalliopi Efkleidou and Maria Luisa Ruiz-Galvez present possibilities of application of the concept on Mainland Greece and elsewhere. In the last part of the volume, Maria Relaki presents a theoretical re-evaluation of the role of kinship in House Society studies.

  • This volume, in honour of one of the Odysseuses in Aegean archaeology, Professor Robert Laffineur, comprises a combination of papers presented during a seminar series on recent developments in Mycenaean archaeology at the Université de Louvain during the academic year 2015-2016. These were organised within the frame of the ARC13/18-049 (concerted research action) 'A World in Crisis?' To these are added a series of papers by friends of Robert Laffineur who were keen to off er a contribution to honour him foremost as a friend and scholar in his own right but also as editor of a respected international series founded by him - Aegaeum - and as the driving force and inspiration behind the biannual Aegean meetings that have travelled the world. Several papers within touch scientific domains close to Robert's heart while others present new excavations or new interpretations of known data.

  • Learner Corpus Research (LCR) is a vibrant discipline, which combines methodological rigour in the analysis of authentic learner data with a focus on practical pedagogical application. Following earlier successful conferences in Louvain and Bergen, the third LCR conference, hosted by Radboud University Nijmegen, the Netherlands, illustrated how LCR has matured. The field is advancing in its integration of experimental studies and learner corpus analysis, combining the benefits of controlled experimentation and the analysis of authentic language data. Increasingly, LCR research builds on current Second Language Acquisition theory and uses the study of corpus data to contribute to it. This volume reflects the range and scope of the field and the almost kaleidoscopic nature of the work carried out under the LCR umbrella, representing a multitude of research interests, including written and spoken EFL production, language assessment and translation studies. The field's maturity is also illustrated by methodological developments such as attention for individual variation, inclusion of L1 data and use of longitudinal corpora. The papers in this volume do not only chart learners' development, they also illustrate the development within the field itself. While the field is branching out, it also remains true to its origins in applied linguistics in that it helps to define perceptions of proficiency, substantiate language level descriptors and inform teaching methodology.

  • This publication is the volume 4 of a series dealing with the culture and traditions of the Ibaloy of Upper Doacan (Itogon, Benguet, Philippines). It is available in Nabaloy and in English. Elders share their stories to a group of youngsters who ask them questions on a variety of topics such as the land, trees, plants, rules, incidents, death rituals and spirits. The book provides the verbatim accounts of these discussions recorded during a workshop that took place at the Senior-Citizen hall in 2019.

  • The present volume contains selected proceedings from the fifth edition of the Using Corpora in Contrastive and Translation Studies (UCCTS) international conference held at the University of Louvain in September 2018. It brings together thirteen chapters that all make use of electronic comparable and/or parallel corpora to inform contrastive linguistics, translation theory, translation pedagogy, translation quality assessment and multilingual terminology. The volume is structured in five thematic sections, devoted to learner-focused descriptive translation studies, corpus use in translator training, studies of translated and edited language, contrastive linguistics, and terminology. Together, the contributions in the volume reflect recent developments in corpus-based cross-linguistic studies, such as the compilation and analysis of learner translation corpora to identify the typical features of learner translated language and inform translator training, the comparative analysis of translation and other forms of mediated communication, such as editing, the compilation of new multilingual corpora and the analysis of under-researched linguistic phenomena, such as punctuation. The volume also testifies to the growing cross-fertilization between contrastive linguistics and translation studies, both in terms of methodology (e.g. the combined use of different types of corpora and the exploration of corpus-driven methods) and theory (e.g. the role played by source language influence and cross-linguistic contrasts in translation).

  • They are qualified, experienced, motivated, academically accomplished. They work tirelessly, collecting invaluable data in the field under conditions that are always challenging, and at times dangerous. And yet, their voices are unheard, and their names go unacknowledged in published research. Such is the lot of far too many research assistants from the Global South - people upon whose work an entire industry of knowledge production has been built. They are shut out of discussions on project design and left in the dark about the modalities of research funding. Later, the results of their research are published in journals to which they often have no access. Much of this is due to a certain omertà surrounding power imbalances, as well as research assistants' working conditions, financial difficulties, psychological traumas, and vulnerabilities. It also stems from the persistence of colonial mentalities in the research world - within universities, governments, foundations, aid institutions, and NGO's. The Bukavu Series is a vibrant blog series about the experiences of research assistants in the Global South. Driven primarily by these silent voices, the series yields a mosaic depiction of fieldwork that mixes humor, realism, and incisive critique. This book offers a unique entry point into a critical debate, leading us toward concrete reforms, and setting us on the course toward a decolonisation of research.

  • Blindness and low vision lead to a set of consequences in everyday life and require various adaptations so that visual impaired persons grow in a secure, rich and appropriate environment. This brochure, realized by field professionals from the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind specialized in the support of visually impaired persons, should be considered as a toolbox offering the basis for the first steps with a visually impaired person.Theoretical and practical elements are addressed throughout the reading in order to help professionals who care for these persons in daily reality from an educational point of view as well as on rehabilitation and academic skills. This book is English translation from an initial French version.
