Memories of the "liberation of Kosovo" among Albanian-speaking activists in Switzerland : narrating transnational belonging to the nation

Farquet, Romaine ; Dahinden, Janine (Dir.) ; Duijzings, Ger (Codir.) ; Schwander-Sievers, Stephanie (Codir.) ; Lacroix, Thomas (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

The Albanian-speaking population living in Switzerland mobilised massively on behalf of the national cause in Kosovo in the 1990s. After the end of the conflict, that saw the departure of the Serbian forces from Kosovo (1999), some of the Albanian-speaking activists from Switzerland returned to their homeland. Many others remained in Switzerland, where they largely diminished or terminated their...

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...

Laboratory based XAS measurements, electron-induced double K-shell ionization of Sc, Cr and Cu : and, Chemical sensitivity of photoinduced Kʰβ hypersatelite transition in Cr compounds

Zeeshan, Faisal ; Dousse, Jean-Claude (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2017 ; no. 2052.

The present PhD thesis includes three different projects which belong to the domain of inner-shell atomic physics and high energy resolution X-ray spectroscopy. The first project consists of a series of in-house measurements of the characteristic K and L X-ray absorption spectra (XAS) of several 3d, 4d and 5d transition metals. For this project the target chamber of the von Hamos curved crystal...

The Heritage of Ancestors : Early Studies on Armenian Manuscripts and Miniature Painting

Grigoryan Savary, Gohar

In: Venezia Arti, 2018, vol. 27, p. 81-102

This essay deals with the emergence of scholarship on medieval Armenian artifacts with a particular emphasis on the study of manuscripts and miniature painting, and covers the period from the mid-nineteenth century until the beginning of the twentieth century. While the title of this article may appear to stress the heritage of the Armenians as belonging to a ‘national culture’, it also...
