Drawing on whiteness studies and psychoanalytical theory, this article explores representations of interracial relationships as a means to claim and/or contest the ideal of whiteness in Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist. In Hamid’s novel, the 9/11 attacks trigger a crisis in self-identification for model-minority Pakistani protagonist Changez, which proves illuminating in terms of the invisible racial subjugation exerted so far upon him by Jim, Changez’s passport into the corporate world, and by Erica, his (white) lifeline to exclusive Manhattan. The article focuses on the ways in which Hamid uses the post 9/11 context to reveal the racial melancholia surreptitiously informing today’s “new” versions of the American Dream, which is apparent in Changez’s and Erica’s relationship as well as in their parallel impossible mourning of the broken mirror of “white” Am/Erica. Emphasizing the extent to which whiteness and racial melancholia permeate the discourse of assimilation, Hamid’s book rewrites the “new” American Dream as what Anne Anlin Cheng has called a “fantasy built on absences”.

Towards the end of the 20th century, as the propagation of new discourses of ethnic success generated new versions of the American Dream, “America” came to signify not only immigrant mobility and whiteness, but also multiculturalism. As Inderpal Grewal argues in Transnational America, this paradox of sorts was only made possible through a slippage in the meaning of “white,” within which whiteness still connoted Anglo-America, yet extended its meaning to include a more heterogeneous group that passed as white through the endorsement of culturally-specific consumerist practices and middle-class norms of behaviour. Posing as multicultural yet covertly fastening whiteness to an ideal Americanness, these so-called “new” versions of the American Dream elevated the Asian American community to “model minority” status, thus contributing to rationalize away the lure that a “relative whiteness” could somehow be acquired by non-white minority groups. Drawing on whiteness studies and psychoanalytical theory, my paper will explore representations of interracial relationships as a means to claim and/or contest the ideal of whiteness in Mohsin Hamid’s The Reluctant Fundamentalist. In Hamid’s novel, the 9/11 attacks trigger a crisis in self-identification for model-minority protagonist Changez, which proves illuminating in terms of the invisible racial subjugation exerted so far onto him by Jim, Changez’s passport into the corporate world, and by Erica, his (white) lifeline to exclusive Manhattan. My paper will focus on the ways in which Hamid uses the post 9/11 context to reveal the racial melancholia surreptitiously informing today’s “new” versions of the American Dream, which is apparent in Changez’s and Erica’s relationship as well as in their parallel impossible mourning of the broken mirror of “white” Am/Erica. Emphasizing the extent to which whiteness and racial melancholia permeate the discourse of assimilation, Hamid’s book rewrites the “new” American Dream as a “fantasy built on absences” (Anne Anlin Cheng).

Introduction Le matériel GPS a fait une percée très remarquée dans de nombreuses applications civiles au cours des cinq dernières années (transports, génie civil, topographie, randonnée, …). La gestion forestière, pour laquelle la dimension spatiale joue un rôle important, n’échappe pas à la règle et les possibilités d’application de cette nouvelle technologie y sont multiples. Le présent document a pour objectif d'expliquer les grands principes de fonctionnement des récepteurs GPS et de présenter les possibilités d'utilisation de ces appareils en forêt. L’accent est mis sur les niveaux de précision à espérer en fonction des conditions d’utilisation. Le type d’appareil considéré dans ce document est celui des récepteurs de bas de gamme (GPS dits de "randonnée"), dont le prix d'achat varie entre 250 et 500 €. Ce choix délibéré est lié non seulement au coût abordable de cette gamme d’appareils, mais également à sa simplicité de mise en oeuvre. [less ▲]

In our cities, trees must face many root stress. The most current are: •The chronic drought, bound to the narrowness of the plantation holes, to the packing of soil, to the asphalt cover of the surroundings ; •The asphyxic conditions, due to the same reasons ; •The chemical factors: inadequate pH, high salinity, deficiencies in nutrient elements, toxicity of others…; •The human aggressions: vandalism, injuries due to public works,… In spite of the diversity of the reasons, several morpho-physiological consequences are similar, notably on the depression of mineral nutrition and of water balance. Consequently, the proposed are aimed at the remediation of these effects. They are based on the correction of mineral deficiencies by injections of nutrient solutions, on the improvement of the biologic fertility by mycorrhiza inoculations, or on the aeration of soil structure. Some technics combine these different treatments. [less ▲]

The Prevost’s model is currently used to model cyclic behaviour of soils especially in earthquake engineering. The original model is able to capture the main features of cyclic behaviour: pore pressure build up and plastic deformation accumulation. But accurate modelling of laboratory tests requires improvements. Enhanced models exist but require a lot of parameters that make them cumbersome for practical purpose. A suction caisson, part of a tripod offshore foundation for wind turbines is modelled. Possibilities of the Prevost’s model are highlighted compared with a classical Drucker-prager model. [less ▲]

Knowing the hydrodynamic regime in which is working a bubble column is of great importance because the regime affects strongly the mass transfer between the phases. To this end, we examine the potentialities of an Electrical Resistance Tomography (ERT) device. We analyse cross correlation of electrode pair measurements, of neighbouring pixels and power spectra of averaged pixels within a single plane as well as cross correlations of averaged pixels between two planes, without finding a clear signature of the churn turbulent flow. Variable gas flow rate inputs are used to determine the time resolution of the ERT. [less ▲]

Preliminary flotations tests towards rutile extraction from Norwegian eclogites (Verving deposit) have been carried out. Various sulfonate type flotation reagents (produced by Hoechts) have been tested. Selectivity between rutile/pyroxene has been targeted. Rutile separation from pyrite and garnet has been further identified as principal problem. [less ▲]
