This paper analyzes the articulation between mobility and technology within life trajectories marked by migration, exile and the search for economic achievement. It does so by focusing on a Nigerian couple’s (attempted) itinerary of return migration from Italy to Nigeria, and on the role played by a specific transport technology, the shipping container, within this process. It highlights how, throughout the itinerary that brings the container from Italy to Nigeria, its social meaning and value become the center of a series of tense interactions, in which different conceptions of family hierarchies, contrasting spiritual beliefs, as well as diverging imaginaries about transnational mobility, migration and life abroad come to the fore, and provoke radical transformations in the life of the people involved in the itinerary of the container itself [less ▲]

Matériels et méthodes : l’étude porte sur un crâne déformé provenant d’Ancón au Pérou, inventorié au Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (MNHN) de Paris en 1889. L’étude est géographique, historique, macroscopique et tomodensitométrique. Résultats : situé sur la côte à 40 km au nord de Lima, la capitale du Pérou, le site d’Ancón est un site archéologique de la période lithique, et un lieu de sépulture depuis l’époque Chavín (1250 à 250 av. J.-Chr.). Dès l’époque Chavín, les peuples du Pérou ancien construisaient des centres cérémoniels dirigés par une élite théocratique, et déformaient le crâne des enfants dès les premiers jours de la vie, à l’aide de moyens de pression variés. La déformation du crâne d’Ancón est une déformation antéro-postérieure oblique, brachycéphale, bilobée et asymétrique, sans trépanation ni déformation dentaire associée. C’est une variante bilobée du type Huaura de déformation crânienne, qui est associé aux régions de Chancay-Ancón et Lima. L’étude tomodensitométrique des variations d’épaisseur de la voûte, avec amincissement en regard des zones de pression, a montré que la déformation était intentionnelle, et caractérisée par une pression fronto-pariéto-temporale bilatérale surtout antérieure et dégressive d’avant en arrière, associée à une pression frontale, occipitale, et sagittale médiane. En l’absence de contexte et de datation, l’ancienneté du crâne étudié ne peut pas être précisée au long d’une période de presque trois millénaires, jusqu’à la domination Inca et l’arrivée des Espagnols (1532). Le crâne pourrait appartenir à l’une ou l’autre des cultures successives du site d’Ancón : Chavín, Baňos de Boza o Miramar, Lima, Wari, et Chancay (1200 à 1470), dont les céramiques représentent la déformation bilobée. Le crâne est probablement celui d’une femme âgée de plus de 45 ans à son décès, de statut social élevé, faisant partie de l’élite magico-religieuse, politique et économique dirigeante. L’étude de l’endocrâne a permis d’observer la déformation des veines superficielles et des lobes du cerveau. Il existe des signes de parodonpathie chronique à un stade avancé. Un abcès d’origine dentaire pourrait avoir été la cause du décès. Conclusions et perspectives : en ce qui concerne la pratique des déformations crâniennes, la région d’Ancón-Chancay et de Lima paraît être remarquable à trois égards : par le grand nombre de crânes déformés, par le grand nombre de crânes bilobés, et par la proportion importante de femmes, dont on peut supposer qu’elles étaient nées de familles nobles, et destinées dès l’enfance à faire partie de l’élite théocratique. La reconstitution 3D de l’épaisseur de la voûte crânienne a permis pour la première fois à notre connaissance de caractériser ce type de déformation, et pourrait permettre de reconstituer l’appareil déformateur. Seule la reprise des exhumations programmées sur le site d’Ancón, dans le cadre d’un projet prospectif pluridisciplinaire, pourrait permettre de mieux préciser la proportion d’individus à crâne déformé, la proportion des crânes bilobés, et le sex ratio, dans chaque contexte historique et socio-culturel de ce type de déformation crânienne intentionnelle ; et, peut-être, de retrouver in situ l’appareil déformateur correspondant.

At first sight, echolocating bats face a difficult trade-off. As flying animals, they would benefit from a streamlined geometric shape to reduce aerodynamic drag and increase flight efficiency. However, as echolocating animals, their pinnae generate the acoustic cues necessary for navigation and foraging. Moreover, species emitting sound through their nostrils often feature elaborate noseleaves that help in focussing the emitted echolocation pulses. Both pinnae and noseleaves reduce the streamlined character of a bat’s morphology. It is generally assumed that by compromising the streamlined charactered of the geometry, the head morphology generates substantial drag, thereby reducing flight efficiency. In contrast, it has also been suggested that the pinnae of bats generate lift forces counteracting the detrimental effect of the increased drag. However, very little data exist on the aerodynamic properties of bat pinnae and noseleaves. In this work, the aerodynamic forces generated by the heads of seven species of bats, including noseleaved bats, are measured by testing detailed 3D models in a wind tunnel. Models of Myotis daubentonii, Macrophyllum macrophyllum, Micronycteris microtis, Eptesicus fuscus, Rhinolophus formosae, Rhinolophus rouxi and Phyllostomus discolor are tested. The results confirm that non-streamlined facial morphologies yield considerable drag forces but also generate substantial lift. The net effect is a slight increase in the lift-to-drag ratio. Therefore, there is no evidence of high aerodynamic costs associated with the morphology of bat heads [less ▲]

Much contemporary images of black women in Italian media are marked by the legacy of colonialist propaganda and tend to perpetuate a representation of black women as passive eroticized objects of the white male gaze. In this sense, Ponzanesi’s call for ‘new and less biased representations, which could help to assess the multiple subject positions that black identities now occupy’ (2005: 179) is still relevant. This article responds to this call by analyzing two Nigerian video films that thematize migration and prostitution trafficking in Italy. By highlighting the complexity of the processes of ‘subjectivation’ taking place throughout the migratory process, these videos invite their viewers to look at the postcolonial subject’s responsibility in shaping the world in which s/he lives, and offer a representation of the black female subject able to go beyond the voyeuristic attitude that characterize much of the existing contemporary Italian visual culture about this topic.

Ni–Cu/SiO2 xerogel catalysts have been synthesized by cogelation of industrial tetraethoxysilane (Dynasil) and chelates of Ni and Cu with industrial 3-(2-aminoethylamino)propyltrimethoxysilane (Dynasylan DAMO) in industrial ethanol denatured with diethyl phthalate. Despite the use of industrial grade reagents, highly dispersed bimetallic Ni–Cu/SiO2 xerogel catalysts were obtained. These samples are composed of completely accessible Ni–Cu alloy crystallites with sizes of 1.6–3.4 nm located inside silica particles exhibiting a monodisperse microporous distribution. It appears that the bimetallic complex acts as a nucleation agent in the formation of silica particles. The combination of results obtained from the calculation of the metal ratio in catalysts, H2 chemisorption and transmission electron microscopy allowed calculating the surface composition of the nickel–copper particles in Ni–Cu/SiO2 cogelled xerogel catalysts. Values obtained indicate a very pronounced surface enrichment with copper. While 1,2-dichloroethane hydrodechlorination over pure nickel mainly produces ethane, increasing copper content in bimetallic catalysts results in an increase in ethylene selectivity. The specific consumption rate of 1,2-dichloroethane decreases when copper loading increases. The turnover frequency, that is, the number of catalytic cycle per active site (nickel atom and its surrounding copper atoms) and per second, seems to be independent of surface composition of alloy particles.

With a few exceptions, the emerging field of production studies has dealt mainly with the analysis of Western film industries. This chapter addresses this gap by looking at the growing African digital film production industries in Southern Nigeria and Ethiopia, and by pointing out the specificities of the production cultures that have emerged within this context. By applying an ethnographic approach to the study of film production, this chapter highlights the ambiguous position that digital film production occupies in these two countries between, on the one hand, the creation of new avenues of economic and social mobility, and on the other the emergence of strategies of exclusion and control.
