  1. 1. Narrating Gypsies, Telling Travellers : A Sudy of the Relational Self in Four Life Stories

    Author : Martin Shaw; David Mayall; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; life story; relationality; habitus; narration; Gypsy; Traveller; United Kingdom and Northern Ireland; embodied subjectivity; Post- and internal colonialisms; violence s ; self-domination; domination; English language; Engelska språket;

    Abstract : To say that Gypsy and/or Traveller and/or Romany life stories have existed on the periphery of literary studies can be considered an understatement. In this study of the relational self, Narrating Gypsies, Telling Travellers, examines the discursive and structural complexities involved in the practices of writing and speaking in the production process and narrative trajectories of the life stories of Gordon Sylvester Boswell (1970), Nan Joyce (1985), Jimmy Stockins (2000), and Jess Smith (2002 and 2003).

  2. 2. Interacting Particle Systems: Percolation, Stochastic Domination and Randomly Evolving Environments

    Author : Erik Broman; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Determinantal processes; k-dependence; k-block-factors; percolation; stochastic Ising models; contact process; $ epsilon-$movability; hidden Markov chain; stochastic domination; k-block-factors;

    Abstract : In this thesis we first analyze the class of one-dependent trigonometric determinantal processes and show that they are all two-block-factors. We do this by constructing the two-block-factors explicitly. Second we investigate the dynamic stability of percolation for the stochastic Ising model and the contact process. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the Power of Informal Economies and the Informal Economies of Power : Rethinking Informality, Resilience and Violence in Kosovo

    Author : Anna Danielsson; Joakim Ekman; Stefano Guzzini; Vivienne Jabri; Södertörns högskola; []

    Abstract : Since the 1970s, the concept of “economic informality” has served as focal point for a comprehensive scholarly thinking and the development of policy initiatives enhanced by international organisations. Yet, informality displays a puzzling resilience. READ MORE

  4. 4. Liberty Revisited. A Historical and Systematic Account of an Egalitarian Conception of Liberty and Legitimacy

    Abstract : This dissertation argues for an interpretation of liberty in terms of non-domination rather than non-interference, that non-domination can work as an independent criterion of political legitimacy, and that non-domination includes an approximation of equality in socioeconomic goods. In the first part, four theories of liberty and power – those of Kant, Locke, J. READ MORE

  5. 5. A Class of Renewal Processes in Random Environments

    Author : David Svensson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : point process; renewal process; random environment; coupling; regeneration; failure rate; Poisson embedding; asymptotics; stochastic domination; stochastic monotonicity; renewal process;

    Abstract : This paper deals with a generalization of the class of renewal processes with absolutely continuous life length distribution, obtained by allowing a random environment to modulate the stochastic intensity of the renewal process. The random environment is a birth and death process with a finite state space. READ MORE
