Skelton's Voice and Performance

Dutton, Elisabeth

In: A critical companion to John Skelton, 2018, p. 114-126

Although only one play by Skelton survives, he wrote others, along with pageant disguising and a devotional poem that he 'devised to be displayed'. It is possible too that Skelton performed some of his poems in court ceremonies or festivals, and he was certainly involved in producing court performances of various kinds. This chapter explores the ways in which Skelton deploys voices and creates...

Medieval Convent Drama : Translating Scripture and Transforming the Liturgy

Dutton, Elisabeth ; Robinson, Olivia ; Cheung-Salisbury, Matthew

In: A Companion to Medieval Translation, 2019, p. 63-74

This article examines a vernacular Nativity play from the convent at Huy, in modern-day Belgium. The play includes liturgical citations that would have been sung in Latin, alongside the Walloon French lines that translate generically -- scriptural narrative into verse drama -- as well as linguistically. Scriptural narrative is also expanded through the addition of apocryphal material and...

Restrictions in Spatial Competition : The Effects on Firms and Consumers

Buechel, Berno ; Klein, Jan F.

In: Homo economicus, 2016, vol. 33, no. 1-2, p. 157-172

Despite the rich stream of research that evolved from Hotelling’s spatial competition model, the fact that firms’ strategies are constrained by their technological capabilities, the legal environment, or overriding corporate strategies is commonly neglected. We study a model of Hotelling–Downs competition in which two firms choose a position along a one-dimensional market given that...

The dynamics of continuous cultural traits in social networks

Buechel, Berno ; Hellmann, Tim ; Pichler, Michael M.

In: Journal of economic theory, 2014, vol. 154, p. 274-309

We consider an overlapping generations model where continuous cultural traits are transmitted from an adult generation to the children. A weighted social network describes how children are influenced not only by their parents but also by other role models within the society. Parents can invest into the purposeful socialization of their children by strategically displaying a cultural trait...

Black Sheep or Scapegoats? : Implementable Monitoring Policies under Unobservable Levels of Misbehavior

Buechel, Berno ; Muehlheusser, Gerd

In: The journal of legal studies, 2016, vol. 45, no. 2, p. 331-366

An authority delegates a monitoring task to an agent. Thereby, it can observe the number of detected offenders but not the monitoring intensity chosen by the agent or the resulting level of misbehavior. We provide a necessary and sufficient condition for the implementability of monitoring policies. When several monitoring intensities lead to an observationally identical outcome, only the...

Reducing the Domination Number of Graphs via Edge Contractions

Galby, Esther ; Lima, Paloma T. ; Ries, Bernard

In: 44th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science (MFCS 2019) - LIPICS Vol. 138, 2019, p. 41:1-41:13

In this paper, we study the following problem: given a connected graph G, can we reduce the domination number of G by at least one using k edge contractions, for some fixed integer k >= 0? We show that for k <= 2, the problem is coNP-hard. We further prove that for k=1, the problem is W[1]-hard parameterized by the size of a minimum dominating set plus the mim-width of the input graph, and that...
