Quels sont les facteurs qui influencent l'acte de cuisiner chez les européens âgés entre 18 et 65 ans ? : travail de Bachelor

De Bortoli, Lara ; Risco, Arlette ; Taburet, Arthur ; Kehl Dubois, Corinne (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de santé Genève, 2019.

Introduction Pourquoi certains cuisinent de moins en moins, peu ou pas du tout? Le temps à disposition pour cuisiner et la transmission intergénérationnelle des compétences culinaires sont en train de diminuer, cela impacte négativement la pratique culinaire. De plus, la restauration rapide augmente. Les plats préparés sont généralement de moins bonne qualité nutritionnelle que ceux...

New directions in studying policies of international student mobility and migration

Riaño, Yvonne ; Van Mol, Christof ; Raghuram, Parvati

In: Globalisation, Societies and Education, 2018, vol. 16, no. 3, p. 283-294

Many host-countries have liberalised migration policies to facilitate the transition of international students to the local labour market as they are seen as economic agents who increase global competitiveness and integrate easily. However, how migration and educational policies at the regional and national levels emerge, are negotiated and become implemented, and how they contradict other...

Evolution observée du manteau neigeux des Alpes suisses dans le contexte des changements climatiques entre 1970 et 2016 = Observed Evolution of the Snowpack under Climate Change from 1970 to 2016 in the Swiss Alps

Klein, Geoffrey ; Rebetez, Martine (Dir.) ; Morin, Samuel (Codir.) ; Randin, Christophe (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Mountain regions are particularly exposed to climate change. The significant increase of air temperatures observed during the XXth century in the Alps had strong impacts on the spatial and temporal variability of snow cover, causing major changes on ecosystems, hydrological cycles or human economic activities. In this context of global warming, it is important to improve knowledge on snowpack...

Sur quelques emplois du pronom je dans l’Encyclopédie de Diderot et d’Alembert

Brot, Muriel

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2018, vol. 69, p. 61-73

Used by several encyclopedists, the pronoun je appears in many articles of Diderot's and d'Alembert's Encyclopédie which – owing to the scholarly ambition of their research as well as to the collective nature of the undertaking – qualify as scientific discourse, a genre which cannot normally use this pronoun without breaching its own rules, thus giving rise to criticism over genre confusion....

La costruzione dell'immaginario imperiale : Halford Mackinder e il Colonial Office Visual Instruction Committee

Bonollo, Leonardo ; Söderström, Ola (Dir.) ; Fall, Juliet (Codir.) ; Panese, Francesco (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

This thesis investigates the factors, the logics and the modalities that activate the imagination of an era and determine the specificity of its forms and functions. The period considered is the Age of Empire, in the belief that the historical and social events linked to imperialism were decisive in constructing the imagination, on a global scale, of an essentially closed world, as the...

Continuous magnetic phase transition in artificial square ice

Sendetskyi, Oles ; Scagnoli, Valerio ; Leo, Naëmi ; Anghinolfi, Luca ; Alberca, Aurora ; Lüning, Jan ; Staub, Urs ; Derlet, Peter Michael ; Heyderman, Laura Jane

In: Physical Review B, 2019, vol. 99, no. 21, p. 214430

Critical behavior is very common in many fields of science and a wide variety of many- body systems exhibit emergent critical phenomena. The beauty of critical phase transitions lies in their scale-free properties, such that the temperature dependence of physical parameters of systems differing at the microscopic scale can be described by the same generic power laws. In this work we establish...

Using Pragmatism to Approach ‘Diaspora’

Fischer, Carolin ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Routledge Handbook of Diaspora Studies, 2019, vol. 34, p. 293-301

This chapter focuses on social practices of 'doing diaspora' by different actors. It also argues an approach based on pragmatism in conjunction with a focus on boundary-work and meaning-making enables to identify and contextualize emic and etic meanings of being Afghan and belonging to a wider Afghan diaspora. Using pragmatism to approach ideas of diaspora would be to examine what individuals or...

How Transnational are Migrants in Switzerland? An Analysis of the Migration-Mobility-Transnationality Nexus

Crettaz ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Migrants and Expats: The Swiss Migration and Mobility Nexus, 2019, p. 267-291

Transnational studies have been in vogue for the past two decades. Nevertheless, there remain important knowledge gaps concerning migrants’ transnational formations. First, most of the literature relies on qualitative case studies. The few existing quantitative studies have shown that transnationality is far from being a “lifestyle” and that factors other than individual preferences are at...

Contesting categories: cross-border marriages from the perspectives of the state, spouses and researchers

Moret, Joëlle ; Andrikopoulos, Apostolos ; Dahinden, Janine

In: Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies, 2019, p. 1-18

Marriages that involve the migration of at least one of the spouses challenge two intersecting facets of the politics of belonging: the making of the ‘good and legitimate citizens’ and the ‘acceptable family’. In Europe, cross-border marriages have been the target of increasing state controls, an issue of public concern and the object of scholarly research. The study of cross-border...

A Language Index of Grammatical Gender Dimensions to Study the Impact of Grammatical Gender on the Way We Perceive Women and Men

Gygax, Pascal Mark ; Elmiger, Daniel ; Zufferey, Sandrine ; Garnham, Alan ; Sczesny, Sabine ; von Stockhausen, Lisa ; Braun, Friederike ; Oakhill, Jane

In: Frontiers in Psychology, 2019, vol. 10, no. 1604, p. 1-6

Psycholinguistic investigations of the way readers and speakers perceive gender have shown several biases associated with how gender is linguistically realized in language. Although such variations across languages offer interesting grounds for legitimate cross- linguistic comparisons, pertinent characteristics of grammatical systems – especially in terms of their gender asymmetries – have to...
