The Special Issue ‘Forced Migration and Refugeedom in the Modern Middle East’ Towards Connected Histories of Refugeedom in the Middle East

Tejel Gorgas, Jordi ; Öztan, Ramazan Hakkı

In: Journal of Migration History, 2020, vol. 6, no. 1, p. 1-15

This special issue approaches the study of refugees and forcibly displaced persons in the Middle East beyond the analytic bounds dictated by states, nations and regions. Each author is interested in showing connections, influences, and far-reaching consequences that cut across analytic boundaries. By challenging state-centred accounts and instead placing refugees, institutions, and states in a...

Settlement Law of 1934: Turkish Nationalism in the Age of Revisionism

Öztan, Ramazan Hakkı

In: Journal of Migration History, 2020, vol. 6, no. 1, p. 82-103

There is a strong tendency in Turkish historiography to approach Kemalist policies as purely domestic affairs that emanate from the centre in a top-down manner, reflecting the clear ideological positions of Ankara. The existing scholarship on the Settlement Law (1934), too, has read the development of Kemalist demographic policies in ideological terms, framing them in top-down modernist...

Between Flows and Places: Conceptualizing the Migration-Mobility Nexus

Hoffmeyer-Zlotnik, Paula

(nccr on the move ; 25)

This paper sets out to conceptualize the nexus between migration and mobility as the connection between two contrasting perspectives on human movement. I use the notion of a “nexus” as an analytical lens to identify connections, overlaps or contradictions between the terms “migration” and “mobility”. I find that although migration and mobility are often seen as distinct phenomena, the...

Towards compact ultralow phase noise lasers and microwave signals based on new approaches

Brochard, Pierre ; Südmeyer, Thomas (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Today, the lowest phase noise microwave signals are generated optically by frequency division of an ultra-stable optical reference using a femtosecond frequency comb. In the commonly used approach, the ultra-stable optical reference is obtained by frequency-stabilizing a laser to a high-finesse ultra-low expansion optical cavity, and the frequency division is performed by optically locking a...

Les tourbières du Vieux Continent se meurent

Pop, Georges

In: Sécurité Environnement, 2020, vol. 1, p. 14-15

Le constat est alarmant : au cours de ces 300 dernières années, depuis le début de l’ère industrielle, les tourbières européennes ont subi un assèchement généralisé dû essentiellement aux activités humaines. Or, ces biotopes contribuent fortement à l’équilibre écologique de la planète en absorbant bien plus de CO2 qu’elles n’en rejettent. La fonction de puits de...

The Nonverbal Processing of Actions Is an Area of Relative Strength in the Semantic Variant of Primary Progressive Aphasia

Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie ; Fossard, Marion ; Macoir, Joël ; Laforce, Robert

In: Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (JSLHR), 2020, p. 1-16

Purpose Better performance for actions compared to objects has been reported in the semantic variant of primary progressive aphasia (svPPA). This study investigated the influence of the assessment task (naming, semantic picture matching) over the dissociation between objects and actions. Method Ten individuals with svPPA and 17 matched controls completed object and...
