Helvetic Henry? A Swiss adaptation of Henry V, or something near enough

Dutton, Elisabeth

In: Staging History: Essays in Late-Medieval and Humanist Drama, 2021, p. 247-266

This article describes the processes of translation, cutting and rearrangement by which Shakespeare’s Henry V, a play often identified with ‘Britishness’, is adapted for a modern Swiss audience. As a play celebrating a national ‘hero’ and a military history largely unknown to the Swiss, Henry V is adapted to an exploration of political power in the abstract, in particular the...

Les ambivalences du travail social identitaire

Soulet, Marc-Henry

In: Interventions sociales et faits religieux / Verba D. & Guelamine F. (éd.), 2014, p. 193-212

Pourquoi la question du travail social identitaire, entendu comme tel lorsqu’il cherche à prendre en considération le registre identitaire comme base d’intervention, se thématise-t-elle aujourd’hui sur le devant de la scène socio-politique ? Bien évidemment, le retour du religieux dans la société en général et la montée de l’Islam au sein de populations issues de...

Direct and Indirect Effects Based on Difference-in-Differences With an Application to Political Preferences Following the Vietnam Draft Lottery

Deuchert, Eva ; Huber, Martin ; Schelker, Mark

In: Journal of Business and Economic Statistics, 2019, vol. 37, no. 4, p. 710-720

We propose a difference-in-differences approach for disentangling a total treatment effect within specific subpopulations into a direct effect and an indirect effect operating through a binary mediating variable. Random treatment assignment along with specific common trend and effect homogeneity assumptions identify the direct effects on the always and never takers, whose mediator is not...

Nonparametric estimation of natural direct and indirect effects based on inverse probability weighting

Huber, Martin ; Yu-Chin, Hsu ; Tsung-Chih, Lai

In: Journal of Econometric Methods, 2019, vol. 8, no. 1, p. 1-20

Using a sequential conditional independence assumption, this paper discusses fully nonparametric estimation of natural direct and indirect causal effects in causal mediation analysis based on inverse probability weighting. We propose estimators of the average indirect effect of a binary treatment, which operates through intermediate variables (or mediators) on the causal path between the...

Evaluating an Information Campaign about Rural Development Policies in FYR Macedonia

Huber, Martin ; Kotevska, Ana ; Martinovska Stojcheska, Aleksandra ; Solovyeva, Anna

In: Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, 2019, vol. 48, no. 1, p. 117-141

This study investigates the effects of a local information campaign on farmers’ interest in a rural development programme (RDP) in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The results suggest that while our intervention succeeded in informing farmers, it had a negative, albeit only marginally significant, effect on the reported possibility of using future RDP support. This puzzling result...

Endogeneity and non-response bias in treatment evaluation – nonparametric identification of causal effects by instruments

Fricke, Hans ; Frölich, Markus ; Huber, Martin ; Lechner, Michael

In: Journal of Applied Econometrics, 2020, p. 481-504

This paper proposes a nonparametric method for evaluating treatment effects in the presence of both treatment endogeneity and attrition/non-response bias, based on two instrumental variables. Using a discrete instrument for the treatment and an instrument with rich (in general continuous) support for non-response/attrition, we identify the average treatment effect on compliers as well as the...

La diversité comme objet et contrainte. La reconnaissance de la diversité ethnoculturelle dans la formation des enseignants en Suisse romande

Ogay, Tania

In: F. Lorcerie (Éd.), Éducation et diversité. Les fondamentaux de l’action., 2021, p. 47-57

Chercher à dresser ne serait-ce qu’un portrait de la formation interculturelle des enseignants en Suisse amène à prendre conscience que la diversité linguistique et culturelle n’est pas qu’un objet sur lequel travaillent les artisans de la formation des enseignants. Dans un pays construit sur l’alliance entre quatre régions linguistiques et vingt-six cantons, la diversité...
