Même en reprécisant le contexte historique d’émergence de l’art performance, la définition de ce genre relativement nouveau au regard de l’histoire de l’art reste difficile à fournir. Plusieurs raisons peuvent être évoquées : immaturité du médium, anti-conformisme revendiqué, variété des formes. Sans prétendre à l’exhaustivité, on peut néanmoins dégager plusieurs caractéristiques récurrentes et tenter de poser les premiers jalons d’une théorie critique de la performance. Une telle entreprise ne me semble pas pouvoir négliger les paradoxes qu’entraîne ce genre. Car entre le potentiel émancipateur de l’art performance et la réception effective de ses propositions par le public, il y a parfois un gouffre étonnant – mais fascinant à observer (et finalement révélateur). Le week-end ACTUS1 est venu confirmer les ambiguïtés qu’il s’agira dans ce texte d’analyser. [less ▲]

La question que nous discutons dans ce papier est de savoir si cette nouvelle forme de division du travail parvient conjointement à améliorer le fonctionnement de l’organisation, tout en favorisant, comme l’affirme une partie importante de la littérature en GRH, l’employabilité des collaborateurs. Nous montrerons, à l’aide d’études de cas, que cette relation semble rarement vérifiée. Quand la multicompétence reste inscrite dans une logique de poste, les résultats en termes d’employabilité ne sont guère probants, conduisant alors à des problèmes concrets de qualité. Si elle s’inscrit davantage dans une logique de développement individuel, la contribution à l’employabilité se renforce mais en générant de sérieux dysfonctionnements organisationnels. [less ▲]

The title of Robert Drewe’s latest novel, Grace (2005), shares with J. M. Coetzee’s antonymous Disgrace (1999) a polysemous quality which derives from both works’ attempt to capture the ethical stance of a society in a way which has personal and political ramifications at the same time. The Australian text shows some concern with the predicament of a boatload of asylum seekers from Indonesia, who later escape from their detention centre in the Kimberleys; but Drewe’s progressive denunciation of Australia’s treatment of refugees is potentially compromised by the Australian anxiety over territorial integrity which provides an unshakeable context for this kind of thematic development. More generally, my paper will explore the ambiguities attending a discursive move which seeks to absorb race into larger categories of political meaning, and the related difficulty of achieving the ‘grace’ of complete freedom from colonialist parameters in an Australian culture where some suspense over territory continues to brood.

We investigated the influence of the sleep/waking cycle, the effects of paradoxical sleep deprivation (PSD) and of the vigilance-promoting drug modafinil on the amino acid contents of rat brain cortex. No significant nycthemeral variations in amino acid levels could be detected. PSD (12-24 hours), using the water tank method, significantly increased the levels of glutamate and glutamine. The increase was still observed after the sleep rebound period. gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) levels did not change significantly during the instrumental sleep deprivation but increased during the rebound period. Control experiments indicate that the increase in glutamate and glutamine levels is due to PSD rather than to the stress associated with the experimental procedure. The increase in glutamate content cannot arise only from transamination reactions, because the levels of other amino acids (such as aspartate) did not decrease. Modafinil treatment did not significantly modify the brain cortex content of any of the amino acids tested. [less ▲]

The paper first distinguishes ritual action for sovereigns, which integrates the honoured rulers at a practical level within the religious life of a community, from other, more discrete configurations of the relation between royal and divine power. Among these trends, focus is on the rhetorical and spectacular dimension of wonder. The strategies of wonder-making are first studied in theory through paradoxography, then the categories of grandeur, exoticism and technical excellence are identified in action in Alexandrian religious life and festivals. Master of an empire with universal claims and collector of everything that is beautiful, rare and precious in the world, the king distances himself from his subjects in order to make his superior status explicit. Distance is, however, only the premise for the king to manifest himself to the great public through epiphanies that can be compared with those of divine power. The paper also discusses the way the conformism of court elites not only satisfied their own need to claim for distinguished social status, but also helped royal message spread and caused loyalty to it.

This study is the revised Spanish version of a study originally published in French as part of a research project on translated literature in Argentina at the close of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century. The weekly Caras y Caretas is analysed concerning the selection criteria of translated texts, strategies of translation, the presence or omission of the translators’ names, the connection between translation and other discourses and pictures in the periodical, and confronted also with a wider historical context, in an attempt to reconstruct the aesthetical and ideological functions of these translations in the illustrated popular press.

Dynamic simulation studies are used to analyze the behavior of power systems after a disturbance has occurred. This type of simulation is essential when the system is operating close to its stability limits or its behavior is dictated by complex control and protection schemes modifying its trajectory. These simulations can be computationally very demanding, especially if performed over a time interval of several minutes. In this paper, new shared- memory parallel computing techniques to increase the performance of large-scale power system dynamic simulations are described. The algorithms presented achieve this by utilizing the parallel processing resources available in modern, inexpensive, multi-core machines. In addition, the localized response of power systems after a disturbance is exploited to further accelerate simulations without decreasing accuracy. The medium-scale model of a real power system and a realistic large-scale test system have been used for the performance evaluation of the proposed methods. [less ▲]

This paper presents the parallelization model used for the non-linear finite element software LAGAMINE. The proposed model is based on the use of a coarse grain approach for the parallelization of the assembly of the stiffness matrix. For the solver of the generated linear problem, we used a parallel direct solver of Gauss type. Finally, we present a discussion of the results of our approach on an example of depp drawing.

Abstract The use of fluorescently labeled MHC multimers has become an essential technique for the analysis of disease- and therapy-induced T cell immunity. While classical MHC multimer analyses are well-suited for the detection of immune responses against a few epitopes, limitations on patient sample size preclude a comprehensive analysis of T cell immunity. To address this issue, we have developed a combinatorial encoding strategy that allows the parallel detection of a multitude of different T cell populations within a single sample. Detection of antigen-specific T cells from peripheral blood by combinatorial encoding is as efficient as detection with conventional PE labeled multimers, but results in a significantly increased sensitivity, and most importantly, allows comprehensive screens to be performed on patient material. Proof of principle for the feasibility of large-scale screening of patient material was obtained by analysis of HLA-A3 restricted T cell responses against known and potential melanoma-associated antigens in peripheral blood from melanoma patients. 2 [less ▲]
