  1. 1. People of reliable loyalty… : Muftiates and the State in Modern Russia

    Författare :Renat Bekkin; Jenny Berglund; Mark Bassin; Galina M. Yemelianova; Södertörns högskola; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Muftiate; spiritual administration of Muslims; mufti; the economics of religion; the institution of the muftiate; Islam in Russia; Islam in the USSR.; History of religion; Religionshistoria; Historical Studies; Historiska studier; Östersjö- och Östeuropaforskning; Baltic and East European studies;

    Sammanfattning : This dissertation presents a full-fledged portrait of the muftiate (spiritual administration of Muslims) in modern Russia. Designed initially for the purpose of controlling religious activity, over time the institution of the muftiate was appropriated by Muslims and became a key factor in preserving national identity for different ethnic groups of Tatars.

  2. 2. Central vestibular compensation : the role of the GABAB receptor

    Författare :Anna Magnusson; Ulrich Büttner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : The remarkable capacity for adaptive plastic changes in response to changed internal or external conditions is a distinctive feature of the vestibular system. Even in adults the system can be modified throughout life due to altered conditions caused by disease. trauma, medical treatment or normal ageing. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Earthquake Sources and Hazard in northern Central America

    Författare :Diego José Cáceres Calix; Ota Kulhánek; Vladimir Schenk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; Northern Central America; Probabilistic Seismic Hazard; Body waveform modeling; Seismic Active Deformation; Earthquake Triggering; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik;

    Sammanfattning : Northern Central America is a tectonically complex zone defined by its borders with Cocos and North America plates. The Middle America subduction zone and the strike-slip motion along the North America-Caribbean plate boundary, in that order, control most of its deformation. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Global and local in late bronze age central Macedonia. Economy, mobility and identity

    Författare :Ole Christian Aslaksen; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Forging Identities; Mobility; Identity; Economy; Central Macedonia; Bronze Age World; Mycenaean Greece; Balkans; Central Europe; Tell societies; Travelers; Ethnicity; Networks; Kastanas; Axiochori; Limnotopos; Tsautsitsa; Kilindir; Toumba Thessaloniki; Assiros; GIS; Pottery; Contextual Archaeology; Resources; Power; Trade;

    Sammanfattning : What impact did expanding Bronze Age networks have on regions located between the great centers in the period 1700-1100 BC? Where the Aegean meets the Balkans, Central Macedonia lies between well-known cultures connected by veins of communication such as the Axios River. In this doctoral dissertation the impact of increased communication is investigated through a new synthesis of artifacts, landscapes and settlement materials from Central Macedonia. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Statistical Seismology Studies in Central America : b-value, seismic hazard and seismic quiescence

    Författare :David Aníbal Monterroso Juárez; Ota Kulhánek; Stefan Wiemer; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Geophysics; b-value; seismic hazard; Monte Carlo; seismic quiescence; Central America; stress; Geofysik; Geophysics; Geofysik;

    Sammanfattning : The present thesis collects results of research applying theory and methods of statistical seismology to the seismicity of Central America, a region with a complex tectonic setting controlled by the interaction of four major plates, namely the Caribbean, Cocos, Nazca and North American plates.Three different earthquake catalogues were used for studies focused on stress in a tectonic volume, seismic hazard maps and seismicity patterns (precursors), covering the region 94ºW to 81ºW and 5ºN to 20ºN.
