Personnage d’exception, le Buddha a été doté par la légende pieuse d’un début de vie extraordinaire. Sa conception et sa naissance sont racontées dans plusieurs œuvres du canon bouddhique et dans diverses biographies extracanoniques. Selon la plus fameuse de celles-ci, le Buddhacarita d’Aśvaghoṣa (2e s. de n.è.), le mère du Buddha, la reine Māyā, vit en songe son fils descendre dans son sein sous la forme d’un éléphant à six défenses. Il descendait ainsi du ciel des « dieux satisfaits » (tuṣita). On trouve une représentation figurée de l’événement dans un bas-relief de Barhut (Inde centrale) datable du 2e s. av.n.è, tandis qu’au temple de Borobudur (Java, 6e s. de n.è.) la scène le représente remettant sa couronne au Buddha du futur, Maitreya, avant de s’incarner La conception du Buddha échappe donc à toute intervention humaine, en particulier à celle du roi Śuddhodana, le mari de Māyā. Nous avons affaire à une « immaculée conception ». La naissance du Buddha est nommée opāpattika, « apparitionnelle », c’est-à-dire « virginale » comme doit l’être une naissance divine. C’est pour cela que Māyā accouche loin du roi et du palais royal, en pleine nature, en compagnie de sa sœur Gautamī. Celle-ci deviendra la mère nourricière de l’enfant après le décès de Mâyâ très tôt après la naissance. Il convient en effet que le Buddha reste un enfant unique. La naissance est représentée sur 2 bas-reliefs . L’un est indo-grec et provient du Gandhara (aujourd’hui région du Pakistan). L’autre est de Nâgârjunakoņḍa en Inde du sud. Le premier est iconique et représente le buddha comme un bébé humain sortant du flanc de sa mère et accueilli par des divinités ; le second est aniconique et le Buddha y figure symboliquement sous forme d’un parasol royal. La seconde naissance miraculeuse est celle de Temiya. Il fait partie de ceux que la littérature bouddhique présente comme revivant, parfois jusque dans les moindres détails, la vie du Buddha. Fils improbable d’un roi impuissant malgré ses milliers d’épouses, Temiya est le fils unique (comme Buddha) de la reine Cāndadevī dont l’ascèse méditative fléchit le dieu Sakka.. Mais Temiya-enfant qu’elle met au monde de façon virginale (comme Māyā) –ne veut pas d’un destin royal. Il simule donc un état végétatif absolu, si bien que le roi -son père putatif- décide de l’enterrer vivant. Mais sur le point de mourir, l’enfant abandonne son jeu et déclare qu’il veut embrasser l’état monastique, à l’instar du Buddha, son père spirituel. [less ▲]

Ce court article expose une réflexion introspective sur les raisons qui poussent à devenir géographe et à s’orienter vers tel ou tel domaine de la discipline. Pour l’auteur, ces raisons semblent combiner une attirance pour la compréhension du Monde qui nous entoure et certaines expériences de vie. L’analyse personnelle présentée conduit également à souligner les exigences du métier de géographe et à relever combien sa pratique est dépendante de son insertion dans l’univers social. [less ▲]

The Lao Government emphasizes on economic development to exit from the list of the Least Developed Countries by 2020. Endowed with abundant water resources, the potential of the country for hydropower is huge and the revenue may finance the poverty reduction policy. However, this approach is widely debated for its environmental and socio‐economic impact. The current research focuses on the impact downstream of a dam, using as a case study in the Vientiane plain. Construction of hydropower dams around the Vientiane plain contributed to modifying the livelihood of the 14 500 people from 12 villages living in the Nam Nyam valley. Hydropower operations notably changed the flood flow in rainy season and have affected paddy fields; it increased the flood flow in the 1980s following the construction of the first dam (Nam Ngum1) and reduced in the 2000s when a new dam (Nam Mang3) was built. Although the Government attempted to prevent the negative impacts of Nam Mang 3 dam by funding an irrigated scheme in the Nam Nyam valley, few hundred people that gained access to the new infrastructure were not those people impacted directly by the change of flood flow. This study shows how the Nam Mang 3 dam contributed to the changes of land use in the Vientiane plain, as well as to the socio‐economic differentiation between villagers. [less ▲]

In dealing with monuments of small scale and local importance historical social, cultural, religious or political networks can be detected once we transcend the solely focus on the object. At the same time those buildings remain to have, up to today, an impact on the social and cultural stratification and an engaged community involvement is very often present. These building are often considered modest heritage although they show great craftsmanship. There is a well-known framework to cope with the material aspects of conservation and restoration of these buildings, but a framework for the intangible layers is lacking. In the tackled heritage societal value was important and crucial. The buildings became collective by their use, local significance or representation. They became beacons, points of reference or meeting points. They form complex spaces of experiences, places of attachment and recognition. Within managing heritage one is hardly focusing on the ‘nameless local’, i.e. the person or social groups that in most cases appropriated the building and its significance ‘in the meantime’, the time between the original occupation and the project of adaptive reuse of the monument. Forgetting about this informal actor is not difficult as they are often invisible or disappearing amid all other elements, especially if one focuses only on the materiality of the building as a historic data. This is enforced by the fact that there are no approved ways for it tracing this. In this contribution some of the tested concepts and tools discovered in the search for and the development of strategies to develop historical buildings in their context differently by reading, mapping, unveiling and understanding their societal meaning for the individual and for the local community will be described.

In The Namesake, Jhumpa Lahiri narrates the tortuous route from childhood to early adulthood of Gogol Ganguli, a U.S.-born descendant of Indian immigrants whose name bears the stigmas of a Bengali practice of nomenclature curtailed by American law. While Gogol’s fixation on his mismatched name reveals his desperate quest for origin, it also signals his struggle to cope with his broken genealogy and his rerouted filiation. Through Gogol’s predicament, Lahiri indeed points to the paradoxes of identity construction for those among second-generation “desis” who have confused filial and affiliative bonds with their present and their ancestry. In this essay, I will particularly draw on the critical concept of the relation between filiation and affiliation developed by Edward Said in his article “Secular Criticism” so as to demonstrate how affiliation can surreptitiously sustain the quest for a sense of “total” identity through cultural exclusivism. By approaching The Namesake along the general axis of filiation and affiliation, I wish to show how Lahiri uses Gogol’s derailed af/filiations to investigate the stock theme of cultural hybridity while proposing a new understanding of the circuitous logic of inheritance and the obliqueness of identity.

Flood management is more than ever an issue for dam designers and engineering consulting firms in charge of rehabilitation works. Piano Key Weirs are a new cost-effective type of spillway designed to improve dams discharge capacity. These structures are particularly attractive: they can easily be built on existing structures and enable very high discharge capacities. Therefore, Piano Key Weirs are nowadays studied worldwide. Piano Key Weir description involves a lot of geometrical parameters (more than 30), which designations are not already universally defined. A naming convention is required to enhance exchanges and cooperation between the numerous developers. A naming convention has been developed at EDF – Hydro Engineering Center in cooperation with the Laboratory of Hydraulic Constructions (LCH), Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and the Laboratory of Hydrology, Applied Hydrodynamics and Hydraulic Constructions (HACH), University of Liege. This paper describes the proposed naming convention and gives definitions and notations of the various geometrical parameters. This work represents a first attempt which should be updated with the contribution of stakeholders involved in this topic. [less ▲]

One of the most reliable findings in the literature on person indentification is that semantic categorization of a face occurs more quickly than naming a face. Here we present two experiments in which participants are shown the faces of their colleagues, i.e., personally familiar people, encountered with high frequency. In each experiment, naming was faster than making a semantic classification, despite the fact that the semantic classifications were highly salient to the participants (Experiment I highest degree obtained; Experiment 2: nationality). The finding is consistent with models that allow or parallel access from faces to semantic information and to names, and demonstrates the need for the frequency of exposure to names to be taken into account in models of proper name processing e.g. Burke, Mackay, Worthley and Wade (1991).
