Fordist Housing Behaviour in a Post-Fordist Context
Katrien SLEGERS,Christian KESELOOT,Mathieu Van CRIEKINGEN,Jean-Michel DECROLY
Journal of Settlements and Spatial Planning , 2012,
Abstract: As recent socio-demographic, economic and cultural changes affected and complicated the transition phase of youngsters to adulthood, it is particularly interesting to investigate in what way this affected their housing trajectories and changes the socio-spatial structure of cities. In the literature, two of such changes, gentrification and suburbanisation, are usually analysed separately. In this paper however, we explore these changes as alternatives for young adults and explain on what criteria youngsters may choose for one or the other in the case of the Brussels metropolitan area. The paper first details the spatial distribution of young adults and the households they live in. We then focus on the motivations and strategies young adults set up to approach their preferred place of living, taking the changing macro-social context into account. Our findings are young adults housing preferences didn’t change that much compared to those of their parents and their place of living during their youth. Nevertheless, the changed context brought up new restrictions and difficulties, forcing specific groups of young adults to look for alternatives to their preferred place of living. Five new strategies emerge from this and explain the coexistence of gentrification and suburbanisation: suburbanization in itself, living on a higher distance of the city centre, second-class (sub)urbanization, delay of independent living and postponement of ownership.

RR Lyrae Studies with Kepler
Katrien Kolenberg
Physics , 2013,
Abstract: The spectacular data delivered by NASA's {\it Kepler} mission have not only boosted the discovery of planets orbiting other stars, but they have opened a window on the inner workings of the stars themselves. For the study of the RR Lyrae stars, Kepler has led to a breakthrough. To date, over 50 RR Lyrae stars are known in the Kepler field. They are studied within the RR Lyrae/Cepheid working group of the Kepler Asteroseismic Science Consortium (KASC). This paper highlights some of the most interesting results on RR Lyrae stars obtained through Kepler so far.
Peculiarities of Blazhko Stars: New Insights
Katrien Kolenberg
Physics , 2011,
Abstract: With increasingly accurate data on RR Lyrae stars we find that the Blazhko effect may be a rule rather than an exception. However, we still do not know what is the cause of this mysterious amplitude and phase modulation. In my talk, I intended to give a glimpse of the properties of Blazhko stars, presenting recent findings concerning what makes Blazhko stars different from their non-modulated counterparts. Recent observations of Blazhko stars obtained from space give some important clues that deserve further exploration.
“Making families”: parenting and belonging in transnational adoption in Flanders
De Graeve, Katrien
Afrika Focus , 2012,
Abstract: The goal of this PhD project is to address major gaps in the present research by providing a theoretical and empirically-informed account of the narratives and performances of transnational adoptive parents. By exploring how adoptive parents both normalize and problematize the perceived differences of their children and families, and by examining what work is done and which imaginations are drawn upon in relation to that difference, it aims to gain insight into how racial, cultural and genetic diversity is metabolized within the so-called private realm of the family. Based within a feminist and constructivist anthropological epistemology, this thesis explores the identity work that parents conduct both for themselves, and on behalf of their children, and examines the citizenship potential of adoptive parents’ parenting work.
L’analyse d’impact de la réglementation (AIR) : un outil pour améliorer la prise de décision politique ?
Chantal Kegels,Katrien Debeuckelaere
Pyramides : Revue du Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches en Administration Publique , 2011,
Abstract: L’analyse d’impact de la réglementation (AIR) est une technique qui se développe de plus en plus en Europe pour aider à améliorer la qualité des réglementations. Cette technique recouvre une série de méthodes d’évaluation ex ante permettant de mieux prendre en compte l’incidence des décisions politiques. Cette technique permet de nourrir le débat démocratique en structurant l’information et en identifiant les arbitrages mais en aucun cas, elle n’est destinée à remplacer la prise de décision politique. Le présent article propose une introduction à l’AIR et à ses principales applications, ainsi qu’un premier aper u de la mise en uvre de cette technique en Belgique.
Learning Analytics
Erik Duval,Katrien Verbert
E-learning and Education , 2012,
Abstract: This paper provides a brief introduction to the domain of ‘learning analytics’. We first explain the background and idea behind the concept. Then we give a brief overview of current research issues. We briefly list some more controversial issues before concluding.
Agent-Based Models of Strategies for the Emergence and Evolution of Grammatical Agreement
Katrien Beuls, Luc Steels
PLOS ONE , 2013, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0058960
Abstract: Grammatical agreement means that features associated with one linguistic unit (for example number or gender) become associated with another unit and then possibly overtly expressed, typically with morphological markers. It is one of the key mechanisms used in many languages to show that certain linguistic units within an utterance grammatically depend on each other. Agreement systems are puzzling because they can be highly complex in terms of what features they use and how they are expressed. Moreover, agreement systems have undergone considerable change in the historical evolution of languages. This article presents language game models with populations of agents in order to find out for what reasons and by what cultural processes and cognitive strategies agreement systems arise. It demonstrates that agreement systems are motivated by the need to minimize combinatorial search and semantic ambiguity, and it shows, for the first time, that once a population of agents adopts a strategy to invent, acquire and coordinate meaningful markers through social learning, linguistic self-organization leads to the spontaneous emergence and cultural transmission of an agreement system. The article also demonstrates how attested grammaticalization phenomena, such as phonetic reduction and conventionalized use of agreement markers, happens as a side effect of additional economizing principles, in particular minimization of articulatory effort and reduction of the marker inventory. More generally, the article illustrates a novel approach for studying how key features of human languages might emerge.
Observational constraints on the magnetic field of RR Lyrae stars
Katrien Kolenberg,Stefano Bagnulo
Physics , 2009, DOI: 10.1063/1.3246493
Abstract: A high percentage of the astrophysically important RR Lyrae stars show a periodic amplitude and/or phase modulation of their pulsation cycles. More than a century after its discovery, this "Blazhko effect" still lacks acceptable theoretical understanding. In one of the plausible models for explaining the phenomenon, the modulation is caused by the effects of a magnetic field. So far, the available observational data have not allowed us to either support nor rule out the presence of a magnetic field in RR Lyrae stars. We intend to determine whether RR Lyrae stars are generally characterized by the presence of a magnetic field organized on a large scale. With the help of the FORS1 instrument at the ESO VLT we performed a spectropolarimetric survey of 17 relatively bright southern RR Lyrae stars, both Blazhko stars and non-modulated stars, and determined their mean longitudinal magnetic field with a typical error bar < 30 G. All our measurements of the mean longitudinal magnetic field resulted in null detections within 3 sigma. From our data we can set an upper limit for the strength of the dipole component of the magnetic fields of RR Lyrae stars to ~ 130 G. Because of the limitations intrinsic to the diagnostic technique, we cannot exclude the presence of higher order multipolar components. The outcome of this survey clarifies that the Blazhko modulation in the pulsation of RR Lyrae stars is not correlated with the presence of a strong, quasi-dipolar magnetic field.
