Die Erschöpfung des Kaisers : Jacques-Louis Davids Napoleon im Washingtoner Tuilerien-Portrait

Mayer, Manuel

This essay is on Jacques-Louis David’s portrait of the Emperor Napoleon in His Study of the Tuileries, nowadays in the National Gallery of Art, Washington. There is no doubt that this is a political portrait. But before it comes to be politically understood, it is a piece of art made by an attentive observer. A great deal has been written on David’s politics, some of which will remain...

Meaning change in a petri dish: constructions, semantic vector spaces, and motion charts

Hilpert, Martin ; Perek, Florent

In: Linguistics Vanguard, 2015, vol. 1, no. 1, p. 339-350

This paper explores how the visualization tool of motion charts can be used for the analysis of meaning change in linguistic constructions. In previous work, linguistic motion charts have been used to represent diachronic frequency trends and changes in the morphosyntactic behavior of linguistic units. The present paper builds on that work, but it shifts the focus to the study of semantic change....

Change in modal meanings: Another look at the shifting collocates of may

Hilpert, Martin

In: Constructions and Frames, 2016, vol. 8, no. 1, p. 66-85

This paper discusses how modal auxiliaries fit into a constructional view of language and how this view allows us to think in new ways about diachronic meaning change in modal auxiliaries. These issues will be illustrated on the basis of a diachronic corpus-based study of the modal auxiliary may, specifically on changes in its collocational preferences during the past 200 years. The main...

Corporate Diplomacy and Political CSR: Similarities, Differences and Theoretical Implications

Ingenhoff, Diana ; Marschlich, Sarah

In: Public Relations Review 45(2), 348-371

The purpose of this study is to systematically review the body of knowledge on corporate diplomacy (CD) and political corporate social responsibility (PCSR) in journals from the fields of public relations, public diplomacy, general management and business ethics. By applying an interdisciplinary approach our study aims to (1) examine what definitions of CD and PCSR exist, (2) explore what...

Sub-100-fs Kerr lens mode-locked Yb:Lu2O3 thin-disk laser oscillator operating at 21 W average power

Modsching, Norbert ; Drs, Jakub ; Fischer, Julien ; Paradis, Clément ; Labaye, François ; Gaponenko, Maxim ; Kränkel, Christian ; Wittwer, Valentin J ; Südmeyer, Thomas

In: Optics Express, 2019, vol. 27, no. 11, p. 16111-16120

We investigate power-scaling of a Kerr lens mode-locked (KLM) Yb:Lu2O3 thin-disk laser (TDL) oscillator operating in the sub-100-fs pulse duration regime. Employing a scheme with higher round-trip gain by increasing the number of passes through the thin-disk gain element, we increase the average power by a factor of two and the optical-to-optical efficiency by a factor of...

Characterization of neutralizing profiles in HIV-1 infected patients from whom the HJ16, HGN194 and HK20 mAbs were obtained

Balla-Jhagjhoorsingh, Sunita S. ; Willems, Betty ; Heyndrickx, Liesbeth ; Heyndrickx, Leo ; Vereecken, Katleen ; Janssens, Wouter ; Seaman, Michael S. ; Corti, Davide ; Lanzavecchia, Antonio ; Davis, David ; Vanham, Guido

In: Plos one, 2011, vol. 6, no. 10, p. e25488

Several new human monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) with a neutralizing potential across different subtypes have recently been described. Three mAbs, HJ16, HGN194 and HK20, were obtained from patients within the HIV-1 cohort of the Institute of Tropical Medicine (ITM). Our aim was to generate immunization antibodies equivalent to those seen in plasma. Here, we describe the selection and...

Unconventional use of LC3 by coronaviruses through the alleged subversion of the ERAD tuning pathway

Reggiori, Fulvio ; De Haan, Cornelis A.M. ; Molinari, Maurizio

In: Viruses, 2011, vol. 3, no. 9, p. 1610-1623

Pathogens of bacterial and viral origin hijack pathways operating in eukaryotic cells in many ways in order to gain access into the host, to establish themselves and to eventually produce their progeny. The detailed molecular characterization of the subversion mechanisms devised by pathogens to infect host cells is crucial to generate targets for therapeutic intervention. Here we review recent...
