See detailMigration, prostitution and the representation of the black female subject in Nigerian video films about Italy

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.

In this paper I look at the particular situation of Congolese and Belgian-Congolese citizens in Belgium, the former colonial metropole. From research conducted over ten years within Congolese circles I argue that postcolonial immigrants/citizens have for the last three decades been experiencing a significant social malus. Not only does daily racial discrimination inform and supply it but so also does treatment by the state itself through its various institutions. Looking at some data collected from political, associative and artistic spheres I argue that the Congolese in Belgium have to deal with a postcolonial malus. My research is grounded on a comprehensive anthropology which privileges the actors’ own perspective. I thereby explore the elements, trends or configurations of the post-migratory situation which may be considered inherited from colonialism. Finally, I discuss the reason why despite three decades of “postcolonial activism”, the postcolonial critique is not a live social issue in French-speaking Belgium. [less ▲]

Like most extracellular matrix (ECM) components, fibronectin (Fn) is proteolyzed generating specific activities. Fibronectin proteinase (Fn-proteinase) represents such a cryptic activity located in the gelatin-binding domain (GBD) of Fn and displays a zinc metalloproteinase activity. The migration-stimulating factor (MSF) is a truncated Fn isoform generated by alternative mRNA splicing and corresponds to the N-terminal part of Fn that comprises the GBD. We show that several human mammary epithelial cells express MSF and constitutively produce Fn-proteinase activity. Furthermore, recombinant M F produced by HEK-293 and MCF-7 cells possesses a constitutive Fn-proteinase activity. Mutating the putative zinc-binding motif, HEXXH, of the protein abolishes its activity thereby demonstrating its specificity. Using PCR, we showed that MSF is barely expressed in normal breast tissues, whereas its expression is significantly increased in tumors. Furthermore, an association between MSF expression and invasive capacity is observed in various breast adenocarcinoma cell lines. Indeed, when stably transfected in non-invasive MCF-7 cells, MSF promotes cell migration in a mechanism mostly dependent on its Fn-proteinase activity. In summary, our study shows that: (i) MSF displays constitutive Fn-proteinase activity; (ii) MSF expression is induced in human breast cancer; and (iff) MSF confers pro-migratory activity that depends mostly on its Fn-proteinase activity. These results suggest that MSF may be involved in tumor progression. (C) 2005 Wiley-Liss, Inc. [less ▲]

Après avoir abordé la question de l'approche ethnographique et la nécessité d'intégrer la profondeur sociohistorique des changements sociaux, état de trois situations qui témoignent à la fois de la complexité des configurations familiales en présence ainsi que des recompositions à l'œuvre. Trois situations dont se dégage une hypothèse : celle d'une réorientation de l'économie du don au sein de la parenté, réorientation opérée par l'intermédiaire des (af)filations religieuses, espaces de médiation par excellence, mais aussi « lieux » de redéfinition et de projection de soi, réorientation qui engage ou ouvre la voie à un processus de transsubjectivation.
