1. Schaden, Otto. "Valley of the Kings Tomb 63 (KV-63)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The 58th Annual Meeting of the American Research Center in Egypt, Wyndham Toledo Hotel, Toledo, Ohio, Apr 20, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p177228_index.html>
Publication Type: Abstract Proposal
Abstract: There are many aspects to the first 'new' tomb found in the Valley of the Kings since Howard Carter discovered Tutankhamun's tomb (KV-62) back in 1922. While the plan of KV-63 is essentially in line with other single-chambered non-royal tombs in the Valley, there are indications of several intrusions in antiquity. The lack of human remains (despite a number of coffins present) suggest that the "final" use of this tomb was an an embalming cache.

In publications (available and/or "in press") we have called attention to the similarity of wares and other items to those from the Tutankhamun funerary cache found by Theodore Davis roughly a century ago in KV-54. Furthermore, there is some evidence which suggests links with KV-55 and KV-62 --- thus leading us to suggest that the date of many of the KV-63 materials will probably fall within or very close in time to the era of Tutankhamun's reign. We will illustrate and discuss the materials most relevant to this suggested dating.

A word of caution, for all the evidence expected from KV-63 is not yet available: of the 28 large storage jars in the chamber, only 12 have been opened and examined. Some key items from the remaining 16 jars (still sealed) will, we hope, enable us to find an even more precise date (or dates) for this aspect of the history of KV-63.

Resumtion of work in the field is planned for later this year.

Abstract: Can international private school effects be explained by peer effects? We use the 2003 TIMSS survey and the 2006 PISA survey to examine the effect of private schools on math achievement among 15-year old students in 56 countries and 13-year old students in 17 countries. We find a consistent effect of private schools that cannot be explained by individual SES nor school resources. We also test whether school resources are used more efficiently in private schools with only mixed results. Our principle finding is that the effect of mean socio-economic status explains the private school effect in the PISA data and mean SES also dramatically reduces the effect of private schools in the TIMSS survey.

3. Huysman, Ineke. "Béatrix de Cusance, Duchess of Lorraine (1614–63) and her Role in Cultural and Political Networks" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the The 62nd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Park Plaza Hotel and Hynes Convention Center, Boston, MA, <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1049077_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In 1653, the English priest Richard Flecknoe dedicated a collection of letters and poems to Béatrix de Cusance, Dutchess of Lorraine, calling her 'the most excellent of her Sex'. While he gained a position in Béatrix's salon on account of his musical and theatrical accomplishments, he is considered to be at best a peripheral author, at worst insignificant. That same year, Constantijn Huygens, by way of contrast a highly respected Dutch diplomat and patron of the arts (now considered an iconic figure in the history of the Calvinist Netherlands) admitted that he had struggled with his amorous feelings for her. But who was this woman upon whom two such apparently different men fixed their devotion? This paper aims to expose her role in cultural and political networks, and show how the accepted image of Béatrix de Cusance is at odds with historical reality.

Abstract: Religion has always played a prominent role in society, particularly in politics. Despite this, few scholars have examined public opinion toward politicians’ religious backgrounds. The current study utilizes public opinion data from the 2000 wave of the World Values Survey in order to assess attitudes towards religious politicians in a diverse sample of 63 nations, with 88,552 individual respondents. Overall results suggest a fairly even split between those who prefer their political leaders to be religious and those who do not, with many having mixed or neutral views. Examining the data at the country level, certain patterns emerge that provide support for secularization theory with modernization, as measured by economic development and perhaps education, weakening preferences for devout politicians. There is also support for cultural theory with a preference for religious leaders most strongly held by the devout, and by a very wide margin. But there is little support for institutional theory, with formerly communist nations no different than comparable nations that did not experience communism's anti-religious policies.

"A Catholic University Fighting Heterodoxy: The Trial against Fadrique Furio Ceriolanus (1556–63)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, Mar 21, 2012 <Not Available>. 2019-10-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p526052_index.html>

Abstract: While studying at the University of Leuven, the famous Spanish humanist Fadrique Furio Ceriolanus published his Bononia (1556), a strong plea for Bible translations in the vernacular. This controversial work caused a serious conflict with the faculty of theology and even lead to Furio's arrest on suspicion of heresy. Up to now only little is known about the subsequent trial. Research carried out on Furio thus far remains silent on this episode. This paper aims at filling this gap by reconstructing the Furio trial on the basis of recently discovered documents in the archives of the University of Leuven and the Belgian state archives. An analysis of the Furio case is not merely of biographical importance, but offers also insight in the mechanisms of censorship applied at the university, as well as in the complex interplay between the different authorities in the struggle against heresy in the Netherlands.
