Abstract

From the 18th century, Oceania became the principal laboratory of raciology for scholars, voyagers, and colonisers alike. By juxtaposing encounters and theory, this magisterial book explores the semantics of human difference in all its emotional, intellectual, religious, and practical dimensions. The argument developed is subtle, engrossing, and gives the paradigm of ‘race’ its full use value. Foreign Bodies is a model of analysis and erudition from which historians of science and everyone interested in intercultural relations will greatly profit.

Abstract

The transition to low-carbon urban water utilities is an innovative idea, only embraced by a few forward thinking utilities currently. This roadmap is directed at urban water utility managers in charge of planning future actions, as well as at the stakeholders who will support the utility action plans. Because only a few “early adopters” utilities have embarked on the Low-Carbon transition, this roadmap intends to support other utilities understand and champion the need for contribution to a carbon neutral future and well as to guide them through a process of change. This roadmap is potentially applicable to all utilities worldwide, but was specifically written for utilities in emerging economies where service performance and data management challenges are often prominent in driving future planning.

Abstract

La traduction est aujourd’hui omniprésente et indispensable pour permettre la communication entre les peuples et les cultures. C’est pourtant une activité multimillénaire, qui n’a pas toujours revêtu les mêmes formes ni connu les mêmes enjeux. L’histoire de la traduction, partie intégrante de la discipline que l’on appelle la traductologie, permet de mieux cerner les contextes culturels dans lesquels s’inscrit la traduction et de suivre l’évolution des réflexions concernant cet objet polymorphe. Dans cet ouvrage publié à titre posthume, le chercheur internationalement reconnu qu’est Michel Ballard nous livre le fruit de ses dernières réflexions et apporte un nouvel éclairage sur la place de la traduction dans l’Antiquité, en tenant compte des publications récentes dans le domaine. La période examinée va de l’Égypte ancienne à saint Jérôme, en passant par la Mésopotamie, la Grèce, l’époque ptolémaïque et Rome.
