Etre tout a la fois artiste, artisan, militant, c'est une question a resoudre davantage qu'une evidence a imposer. Faut-il laisser une trace, une marque singuliere ? Faut-il etre au monde,
ici et maintenant pour y eveiller les consciences, vivre le partage et echafauder les constructions futures ? Comment conjuguer la gratuite de l'art, l'utilite d'une action solidaire et la relation a la commande ? Comment allier l'accomplissement de soi et l'appartenance a une societe ?
Exigeant, perfectionniste, genereux, declamatoire et jubilatoire, Gerard Paris-Clavel travaille au coeur des luttes et pour une existence meilleure. Il joue avec les lettres, les mots et les maux, la photographie, le dessin, la peinture, cherchant et renouvelant sans cesse ses propres codes.
Cet ouvrage est publie a l'occasion
de l'exposition Avec de Gerard Paris-Clavel, presentee a la Maison d'Art Bernard Anthonioz, du 7 septembre au 12 novembre 2017 sous la direction de Francois Barre, Isabel de Bary et Francis Lacloche.

L'espace-temps du politique change : la Terre et la multiplicité des êtres qui la composent font irruption dans les affaires humaines en réagissant aux assauts continus d'un front de modernisation mené par l'État-Capital. La condition moderne, portée par des droits anthropocentrés et des mesures politiques gouvernées par l'exploitation systématique des ressources naturelles et la mise au travail de tous les êtres, s'effondre.
En menant une vaste enquête à travers le monde, ce livre ouvre un autre chemin : penser et habiter notre condition terrestre. Des montagnes andines de Bolivie à la rivière Whanganui de Nouvelle-Zélande, de la ZAD de Notre-Dame-des-Landes en France à l'archipel des îles de Kanaky-Nouvelle Calédonie, du fleuve Elwha aux États-Unis à la rébellion des zapatistes du Chiapas mexicain, les auteurs explorent les processus cosmopolitiques et les inventions institutionnelles qui redonnent à des communautés d'habitant-e-s les moyens d'habiter la Terre.
C'est alors tout le paysage politique de la modernité qui se déplace : l'individu devient personne relationnelle, la démocratie citoyenne et représentative devient l'assemblée multispécifique d'habitants, les peuples nationaux se transforment en peuples-rivières, peuples-montagnes ou peuples-archipels, la souveraineté de l'État se partage pour tenir compte des perspectives décoloniales, interspécifiques et écoféministes. Ces réinventions nous engagent à réhabiter autrement nos relations, nos affects, nos imaginaires afin de vivre une Terre en communs : une Terre faite de plusieurs mondes.Sophie Gosselin, agrégée et docteure en philosophie, et David gé Bartoli, philosophe et écrivain, ont co-écrit Le Toucher du monde, techniques du naturer (éditions Dehors, 2019). Ils sont membres fondateurs de la revue Terrestres.org, Revue des livres, des idées et des écologies, et de l'université Pour la Terre de Tours.
Une histoire de famille comique, irrévérencieuse et délicieusement subversive. Xue Shengqiang, appelé " papa ", n'a jamais quitté son petit village natal du Sichuan, en Chine. Fils à maman, il s'est marié et a repris l'entreprise familiale, qui fabrique la célèbre pâte de haricots aux piments. Si la matriarche tient sa maison d'une main de fer, papa, lui, est loin d'être un saint : il est accro au sexe et a installé sa maîtresse dans l'appartement au-dessus de grand-mère. Le voilà bien embêté lorsque cette dernière découvre le pot aux roses...
Les ennuis continuent car il doit organiser l'anniversaire - 80 ans - de grand-mère, et son frère a décidé d'y mettre son grain de sel. Cerise sur le gâteau, Jasmine, sa maîtresse, est enceinte !
G.E. Jarry a vécu une enfance difficile. Brisée par un inceste récurrent et une autorité de fer dans « une famille au dessus de tout soupçon », elle prend sa plume pour raconter son histoire et révéler sa capacité de résilience et ses prises de conscience.
À travers ce témoignage, elle lève le voile sur son vécu et ses ressentis, afin de faire comprendre au plus grand nombre la capacité que nous avons tous de transcender une expérience, si cruelle soit-elle. L'auteure souhaite redonner confiance et espérance à celles et ceux qui n'ont pas encore trouvé le moyen de se relever d'expériences bouleversantes. Pour autant ce témoignage ne veut véhiculer aucune morale.

Les mouvements messianiques, bien qu'influents, n'ont plus la possibilité réelle d'instaurer un nouvel ordre social, économique et politique. Le leadership politique, par contre, a toute légitimité pour mener le combat. Partant de cette hypothèse, l'auteur de cet ouvrage va étudier la crise de leadership telle qu'elle se manifeste dans la province du Kongo Central (anciennement Bas-Congo). Le mouvement politico-religieux "Bundu dia Kongo", et les pseudo leaders Né-Kongo, par exemple, permettent de mieux cerner les failles politiques de la région.

C'était l'été, au moment où l'on émigre des grandes villes pour courir après la fraîcheur des montagnes, des prés et des bois.Les blés étaient mûrs et coupés, les foins fumaient encore sous la faux, exhalant leurs bonnes odeurs. Et j'allais lentement, humant les brises, me saturant d'air et d'espace, trouvant bon de vivre ainsi au sein de ce grand concert des choses. Mais, comme rien ne satisfait en ce monde, je regrettais de ne pouvoir, comme l'oiseau qui passe, gagner d'un bond les sommets et aller au hasard, au gré de tout caprice, sans m'enquérir des lieux et des pays, sans me préoccuper du temps et des heures, et finir ainsi l'existence d'un jour.Fruit d'une sélection réalisée au sein des fonds de la Bibliothèque nationale de France, Collection XIX a pour ambition de faire découvrir des textes classiques et moins classiques dans les meilleures éditions du XIXe siècle.

This monograph provides an accessible introduction to the regional analysis of fractional diffusion processes. It begins with background coverage of fractional calculus, functional analysis, distributed parameter systems and relevant basic control theory. New research problems are then defined in terms of their actuation and sensing policies within the regional analysis framework. The results presented provide insight into the control-theoretic analysis of fractional-order systems for use in real-life applications such as hard-disk drives, sleep stage identification and classification, and unmanned aerial vehicle control. The results can also be extended to complex fractional-order distributed-parameter systems and various open questions with potential for further investigation are discussed. For instance, the problem of fractional order distributed-parameter systems with mobile actuators/sensors, optimal parameter identification, optimal locations/trajectory of actuators/sensors and regional actuation/sensing configurations are of great interest. The book's use of illustrations and consistent examples throughout helps readers to understand the significance of the proposed fractional models and methodologies and to enhance their comprehension. The applications treated in the book run the gamut from environmental science to national security. Academics and graduate students working with cyber-physical and distributed systems or interested in the applications of fractional calculus will find this book to be an instructive source of state-of-the-art results and inspiration for further research.

Essential principles and practice of assay development The first comprehensive, integrated treatment of the subject, Assay Development: Fundamentals and Practices covers the essentials and techniques involved in carrying out an assay project in either a biotechnology/drug discovery setting or a platform setting. Rather than attempting comprehensive coverage of all assay development technologies, the book introduces the most widely used assay development technologies and illustrates the art of assay development through a few commonly encountered biological targets in assay development (e.g., proteases, kinases, ion channels, and G protein-coupled receptors). Just enough biological background for these biological targets is provided so that the reader can follow the logics of assay development. Chapters discuss: The basics of assay development, including foundational concepts and applications Commonly used instrumental methods for both biochemical assays and cell-based assays Assay strategies for protein binding and enzymatic activity Cell-based assays High-throughput screening An in-depth study of the now popular Caliper's off-chip kinase assay provides an instructive, real-world example of the assay development process.

This book seeks to fill a gap in the existing literature by describing the formulation, interpretation and enforcement of the rules on consumer contracts in China and the EU, and by mapping key similarities and differences. The study addresses selected issues regarding consumer contracts: sources of law in the two jurisdictions are first discussed to set the scene. Afterwards, one preliminary issue - how to define the concept of a consumer contract - and two substantive topics - unfair terms and withdrawal rights - are dealt with. Apart from the descriptive analysis, the book also provides possible explanations for these comparative findings, and argues that the differences in consumer contract rules can be primarily attributed to a disparity of markets. The book offers a valuable resource, particularly for researchers and practitioners in the fields of private law and comparative law.

In multicellular organisms, communication between cells involves secretion of proteins that bind to receptors on neighboring cells. While this has been well documented, another mode of intercellular communication has recently become the subject of increasing interest: the release of exosomes. In cancer, tumor exosomes are involved in various aspects of pathogenesis, including proliferation, immunosuppression, and metastasis. Given the ability of exosomes to export unneeded endogenous molecules from cells, these structures hold great potential as anticancer therapeutic agents. They are also being studied as prognostic markers for cancer.

There are plenty of challenging and interesting problems open for investigation in the field of switched systems. Stability issues help to generate many complex nonlinear dynamic behaviours within switched systems. Professors Sun and Ge present a thorough investigation of stability effects on three broad classes of switching mechanism:
o arbitrary switching where stability represents robustness to unpredictable and undesirable perturbation;
o constrained switching, including random (within a known stochastic distribution), dwell-time (with a known minimum duration for each subsystem) and autonomously-generated (with a pre-assigned mechanism) switching; and
o designed switching in which a measurable and freely-assigned switching mechanism contributes to stability by acting as a control input.
For each of these classes Stability Theory for Switched Dynamical Systems propounds:
o detailed stability analysis and/or design;
o related robustness and performance issues;
o connections to other well-known control problems; and
o many motivating and illustrative examples.
Academic researchers and engineers interested in systems and control will find this book of great value in dealing with all forms of switching and it will be a useful source of complementary reading for graduate students of nonlinear systems theory.

This book introduces an ethnographic case study of two English majors of ethnic minority at YUN, a local university of nationalities in southwest China. Drawing on the theories of post-structuralism and critical multiculturalism, this book mainly studies two female multilingual individuals in Yunnan, China. By scrutinizing university policies, curriculum, personal learning histories, and by discussing the unequal power relationship between national policies, school curricula, and ethnic multilingual learners,this book provides information at a micro-level on how the two ethnic minority students, who have acquired three languages (L1-native, L2-Mandarin Chinese, and L3-English), successfully navigate the Chinese higher education system as multilingual learners despite various tensions, difficulties, and challenges. How these students construct their multiple identities as well as significant factors affecting such identity construction is also discussed. This book will contribute to the scholarship of policy and practice in ethnic multilingual education in China by addressing the challenges for tertiary institutions and ethnic multilingual learners. The author also points out that multiculturalism as a discourse of education might help ease the tension of being an ethnic minority and a Chinese national, and reduce the danger of being assimilated or being marginalized.
