Abstract

Maurice Blanchot et Emmanuel Lévinas ont marqué toute une génération d’intellectuels comme Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault ou Jacques Derrida. À travers la question du corps, de l’éthique, de l’amitié, du judaïsme, et du langage philosophique et littéraire, cet ouvrage tente de mieux faire comprendre la complexité de leurs questionnements et l’influence qu’ils ont pu exercer sur la pensée française du XXe siècle. Au-delà de l’hommage lié aux centenaires des naissances de Lévinas (1906) et de ...

Abstract

This easy-to-read book introduces the basics of solving partial differential equations by means of finite difference methods. Unlike many of the traditional academic works on the topic, this book was written for practitioners. Accordingly, it especially addresses: the construction of finite difference schemes, formulation and implementation of algorithms, verification of implementations, analyses of physical behavior as implied by the numerical solutions, and how to apply the methods and software to solve problems in the fields of physics and biology.

Abstract

Based on fieldwork among state officials, NGOs, politicians, and activists in Costa Rica and Brazil, A Future History of Water traces the unspectacular work necessary to make water access a human right and a human right something different from a commodity. Andrea Ballestero shows how these ephemeral distinctions are made through four technolegal devices—formula, index, list and pact. She argues that what is at stake in these devices is not the making of a distinct future but what counts as the future in the first place. A Future History of Water is an ethnographically rich and conceptually charged journey into ant-filled water meters, fantastical water taxonomies, promises captured on slips of paper, and statistical maneuvers that dissolve the human of human rights. Ultimately, Ballestero demonstrates what happens when instead of trying to fix its meaning, we make water’s changing form the precondition of our analyses.

Abstract

Odor di femmina, orror di femmina…Odeur de femme, horreur de femme… Sous le parfum qui séduit se cache le piège tendu à l’homme par la femme : le charme est censé y masquer le mal. C’est cette proximité que l’auteur explore ici, dans les textes fondateurs de la culture occidentale, du théâtre grec aux romans du XXe siècle ; ou tout simplement, sous la violence quotidienne exercée par les hommes sur les femmes. Mais psychanalyste, elle en relève également les traces dans les théories freudiennes et lacaniennes de la sexualité comme dans sa propre pratique. La femme, nécessaire – jusqu’à présent du moins – pour mettre au monde les enfants, porte atteinte au vœu de suffire à la procréation, depuis toujours exprimé par les hommes. Sa « nécessité » même effraie. Mais aussi elle est l’objet du désir où l’homme risque, croit-il, de s’abîmer : du coup c’est elle qui, par projection, porte la faute et le danger, et en inspire la peur. Peut-on désamorcer ce piège en mettant ses ressorts au jour ? Peut-on désunir le chœur dénonciateur du danger féminin en analysant les voix qui le compotent ? Et, par là, donner place à une autre image de la femme ? C’est le pari que fait ce livre.

Abstract

In software development, project constraints lead to customer-specific variants by copying and adapting the product. During this process, modifications are scattered all over the code. Although this is flexible and efficient in the short term, a Software Product Line (SPL) offers better results in the long term, regarding cost reduction, time-to-market, and quality attributes. This book presents a novel approach named SPLevo, which consolidates customized product copies into an SPL.

Abstract

Ce livre rassemble des contributions issues du séminaire de recherche Acegami (Analyse culturelle et études de genre : art, mythes, images) du Centre d’Histoire et Théorie des Arts de l’EHESS. Les contributions proposent une approche critique de la production de sens et d’idéologie inhérente au champ artistique et envisagent l’histoire de l’art comme un domaine traversé par des rapports de force mais aussi par des subjectivités multiples.

Abstract

Placing Empire examines the spatial politics of Japanese imperialism through a study of Japanese travel and tourism to Korea, Manchuria, and Taiwan between the late nineteenth century and the early 1950s. In a departure from standard histories of Japan, this book shows how debates over the place of colonized lands reshaped the social and spatial imaginary of the modern Japanese nation. In turn, this sociospatial imaginary affected the ways in which colonial difference was conceptualized and enacted. The book thus illuminates how ideas of place became central to the production of new forms of colonial hierarchy as empires around the globe transitioned from an era of territorial acquisition to one of territorial maintenance.

Abstract

This volume investigates the process of learning how to live with individual and group differences in the twenty-first century and examines the ambivalences of contemporary cosmopolitanism. Engaging with the concept of ‘critical cartography’, it emphasizes the structural impact of localities on the experiences of those living with difference, while trying to develop an account of the counter-mappings that follow spatial and social transformations in today’s world. The contributors focus on visual, normative and cultural embodiments of difference, examining dynamic conflicts at local sites that are connected by the processes of Europeanization and globalization.
The collection explores a wide range of topics, including conflicting claims of sexual minorities and conservative Christians, the relationship between national identity and cosmopolitanism, and the ways that cross-cultural communication and bilingualism can help us to understand the complex nature of belonging. The authors come from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds and all contribute to a vernacular reading of cosmopolitanism and transnationalism, aimed at opening up new avenues of research into living with difference.
