1. Equality, Uniqueness, Renewal : Conversations to Reimagine Pedagogical Action, with Jacques Rancière and Adriana Cavarero
Abstract : Sjöstrand (1970a) called the relation between equality and freedom a fundamental pedagogical problem because it shapes assumptions about how pedagogical action affects renewal—or, the issue of human becoming in an always already populated context. In this dissertation I reimagine Sjöstrand’s pedagogical problem, replacing the terms of equality and freedom with Rancière’s concept of equality and Cavarero’s concept of uniqueness, in order to consider the consequences for (a) the connection between pedagogical action and renewal, and (b) the image(s) of renewal that pedagogical action might prioritize.

2. Renewal and Heritage : The Quest for Authenticity in Hasan Hanafi's Islamic Ideology
Abstract : This study presents and analyses a contemporary interpretation of Islam by the Egyptian thinker Hasan Hanafi. His ideas are analysed in a perspective of the history of ideas where both Islamic and Western influences are taken into consideration. READ MORE

3. Nonlinearly Perturbed Renewal Equations : asymptotic Results and Applications
Abstract : In this thesis we investigate a model of nonlinearly perturbed continuoustime renewal equation. Some characteristics of the renewal equation are assumed to have nonpolynomial perturbations, more specifically they can be expanded with respect to a nonpolynomial asymptotic scale. READ MORE

4. Managing contexts for innovation and renewal : Strategies of incumbent firms in traditional manufacturing industries
Abstract : Innovation is important for established firms (i.e., incumbents) in traditional manufacturing industries (TMIs) to continuously survive and thrive. While internal factors often receive attention, different factors external to these firms enable and hinder the creation and realisation of novel products and processes. READ MORE

5. Perturbed Renewal Equations with NonPolynomial Perturbations
Abstract : This thesis deals with a model of nonlinearly perturbed continuoustime renewal equation with nonpolynomial perturbations. The characteristics, namely the defect and moments, of the distribution function generating the renewal equation are assumed to have expansions with respect to a nonpolynomial asymptotic scale: $\{\varphi_{\nn} (\varepsilon) =\varepsilon^{\nn \cdot \w}, \nn \in \mathbf{N}_0^k\}$ as $\varepsilon \to 0$, where $\mathbf{N}_0$ is the set of nonnegative integers, $\mathbf{N}_0^k \equiv \mathbf{N}_0 \times \cdots \times \mathbf{N}_0, 1\leq k .
