This paper studies new cooperative practices using an “anthropo-based” approach of “mediating objects”. It provides insights into cooperative modalities with draughtsmen and mediating objectsʼ potentials as efficient cooperative medium. It suggests to consider design toolsʼ and representationsʼ complementarities instead of maladjustments in order to design cooperative support systems closer to real industrial practices. [less ▲]

Despite growing recognition that the technical and social dimensions of technology development are coproduced, research and policymaking in the nuclear field is still predicated on the separation between both dimensions. This paper explores how this separation is enacted, and occasionally questioned and transformed, within the Belgian context of nuclear technology. It situates the emergence of a science policy support (SPS) unit and programme (PISA) within the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre SCK•CEN as an institutional response to the need of integrating societal and ethical concerns into nuclear research. The paper elicits how since 1999, SPS/PISA draws together science and technology studies (STS) and technology assessment (TA) approaches, creating links between nuclear research innovation and society in mutually beneficial ways. To this end, it first outlines the four areas in which SPS/PISA researchers are active: 1. Ethics of nuclear technology assessment; 2. Radioactive waste management; 3. Safety governance; 4. Perception and communication of ionising radiation risks. As SPS/PISA research is situated in a trading zone that embeds scholarship, nuclear research and research policy, the paper illuminates the growing entanglement of the natural and social sciences, and the roles social scientists play in the development of contemporary technologies and technology policy. Drawing on the notion of hybrid management (Miller 2001), the paper argues that SPS/PISA researchers must develop a language that underlines the interdependency between science, policy, and politics, while acknowledging that actors (policymakers, industry representatives, natural and social scientists, citizens) recurrently draw distinctions between these domains as a means of collectively managing nuclear issues. SPS/PISA research is therefore best understood as boundary work that mediates between various interests, values, and "knowledges." The paper concludes by discussing the key challenges SPS/PISA researchers face while engaging in work of this kind: maintaining professional independence and credibility, ensuring research continuity, and generating both scientific and policy impacts.

La médiation apparaît aujourd’hui comme une réponse efficace face à l’inquiétude relative aux délitements des liens sociaux. Dans une société de plus en plus souvent qualifiée d’individualiste, comment comprendre les pratiques de médiation ? D’une part, le médiateur répond aux demandes de prise en compte des particularités individuelles. Il accepte et valorise le postulat anthropologique d’un individu autonome, responsable et capable. Par ailleurs, le médiateur va relier, renouer le dialogue et les rapports à l’autre. Ce faisant, une anthropologie de l’interdépendance et de la vulnérabilité est également mobilisée. Comment ces deux postulats anthropologiques, a priori opposés, parviennent-ils à s’articuler dans la pratique ? En prenant en compte des exemples concrets issus de la méditation familiale, nous pourrons nourrir cette question et nous interroger – plus généralement – sur la pratique de médiation en tant qu’elle représente (ou non) une alternative aux autres modèles existants.

Milk losses associated with mastitis can be attributed to either effects of pathogens per se (i.e. direct losses) or to effects of the immune response triggered by the presence of mammary pathogens (i.e. indirect losses). Test-day milk somatic cell counts (SCC) and number of bacterial colony forming units (CFU) found in milk samples are putative measures of the level of immune response and of the bacterial load, respectively. Mediation models, in which one independent variable affects a second variable which, in turn, affects a third one, are conceivable models to estimate direct and indirect losses. Here, we evaluated the feasibility of a mediation model in which test-day SCC and milk were regressed toward bacterial CFU measured at three selected sampling dates, 1 week apart. We applied this method on cows free of clinical signs and with records on up to 3 test-days before and after the date of the first bacteriological samples. Most bacteriological cultures were negative (52.38%), others contained either staphylococci (23.08%), streptococci (9.16%), mixed bacteria (8.79%) or were contaminated (6.59%). Only losses mediated by an increase in SCC were significantly different from null. In cows with three consecutive bacteriological positive results, we estimated a decreased milk yield of 0.28 kg per day for each unit increase in log2-transformed CFU that elicited one unit increase in log2-transformed SCC. In cows with one or two bacteriological positive results, indirect milk loss was not significantly different from null although test-day milk decreased by 0.74 kg per day for each unit increase of log2-transformed SCC. These results highlight the importance of milk losses that are mediated by an increase in SCC during mammary infection and the feasibility of decomposing total milk loss into its direct and indirect components. © The Animal Consortium 2016 [less ▲]

Milk losses associated with mastitis can be attributed to either effects of pathogens per se (i.e., direct losses) or effects of the immune response triggered by intramammary infection (indirect losses). The distinction is important in terms of mastitis prevention and treatment. Regardless, the number of pathogens is often unknown (particularly in field studies), making it difficult to estimate direct losses, whereas indirect losses can be approximated by measuring the association between increased somatic cell count (SCC) and milk production. An alternative is to perform a mediation analysis in which changes in milk yield are allocated into their direct and indirect components. We applied this method on data for clinical mastitis, milk and SCC test-day recordings, results of bacteriological cultures (. Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus uberis, coagulase-negative staphylococci, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, and streptococci other than Strep. dysgalactiae and Strep. uberis), and cow characteristics. Following a diagnosis of clinical mastitis, the cow was treated and changes (increase or decrease) in milk production before and after a diagnosis were interpreted counterfactually. On a daily basis, indirect changes, mediated by SCC increase, were significantly different from zero for all bacterial species, with a milk yield decrease (ranging among species from 4 to 33. g and mediated by an increase of 1000. SCC/mL/day) before and a daily milk increase (ranging among species from 2 to 12. g and mediated by a decrease of 1000. SCC/mL/day) after detection. Direct changes, not mediated by SCC, were only different from zero for coagulase-negative staphylococci before diagnosis (72. g per day). We concluded that mixed structural equation models were useful to estimate direct and indirect effects of the presence of clinical mastitis on milk yield. © 2015 Elsevier B.V. [less ▲]

Les pratiques thérapeutiques associant des animaux sont-elles des techniques thérapeutiques comme les autres ? Quelles sont les particularités de cette « médiation animale » dès lors que l’agent médiateur, l’animal, est vivant et partiellement ignorant du dispositif dans lequel il est inscrit ? Nous faisons ici l’hypothèse que les pratiques de médiation animale peuvent s’inscrire dans l’horizon de ce que Leroi-Gourhan nommait le « milieu technique », le « mi-lieu », cet entre-deux qui assure la rencontre, la mise en relation d’un vivant et de son monde. Ce mi-lieu n’a rien d’un cordon, même symbolique, qui relierait le patient, l’intervenant et l’animal. Il se présente plutôt sous la forme d’un écotone, du nom des écosystèmes qui se développent à la lisière de deux écosystèmes différents et dont l’écosystème côtier est le meilleur exemple. Nous nous appuyons sur les concepts de technique, de technique du corps, d’espace potentiel et de rituel pour essayer de comprendre ce processus de médiation dont un vivant animal est partie prenante et comment il se fait que des rencontres animales recèlent un potentiel thérapeutique [less ▲]

Dans l’histoire des « zoothérapies », l’un des enjeux a été de distinguer ce qui relève du champ thérapeutique à proprement parler de ce qui relève plutôt d’activités récréatives ou de soutien. Nombreuses sont les associations qui ont vu se développer en leur sein des controverses, parfois houleuses et acerbes, à ce sujet. Nous proposons ici d’envisager l’introduction d’animaux dans un dispositif d’aide ou de soin comme une pratique de médiation au sens fort du terme, qui permet de créer ce que Winnicott appelait un espace intermédiaire, dans lequel des effets thérapeutiques peuvent survenir.
