Occupant tout les deux une position liminale du champ de la bande dessinée, Jochen Gerner et Ilan Manouach se sont, chacun à leur manière, livrés à des expériences réflexives de destruction de l'image en bande dessinée par le détournement. Ainsi, avec ses projets tels que TNT en Amérique, Abstraction (1941-1968), ou Le Panorama du Feu, Jochen Gerner opère par la technique du recouvrement une relecture d'albums classiques et de petits formats populaires, attirant l'attention sur certains motifs graphiques, abstraits ou figuratifs des objets détournés. Plus en phase avec l'héritage situationniste du détournement, Ilan Manouach intervient sur les œuvres appropriées pour en questionner les principes idéologiques : Katz interroge la métaphore animale au cœur de Maus, tandis qu'avec Les Schtroumpfs noirs, il retourne au thème de la représentation en imprimant l'album de Peyo entièrement en cyan. Moins politisé dans Riki fermier, Manouach y fait disparaître les personnages d'un album de Petzi pour ne garder que celui du pélican Riki, suivant un projet d'écriture à contrainte décrit comme « lipogrammatique ». Pour Gerner comme Manouach, la pratique du détournement touche directement à la matérialité de l'objet de bande dessinée, au sens où il y a une intervention physique sur les bandes dessinées détournées – que ce soit par recouvrement, retouche ou réimpression – qui se double d'un maintien du format de l'objet détourné (48 CC, pocket, pamphlet ou roman graphique). Le lecteur se retrouve ainsi face à une dé-familiarisation d'un objet pourtant connu et reconnu dans sa matérialité. Cette expérience conscientise un acte réflexif de destruction : les images d'origine se voient recouvertes de noir, rayées, masquées, retouchées, effacées, défigurées. Tout en étant extrêmement opaque, ce rapport à la matérialité est cependant différent d'autres formes de « graphiation » qui attirent l'attention sur une gestuelle physique, sur les traces de la main. Ces deux pratiques du détournement mettent en scène une destruction d'images, dont les livres en portent la trace, donnant lieu à une traçabilité différente d'une graphiation qui mettrait en avant la patte graphique du dessinateur. La mesure destructrice de cette acte de détournement se retrouve d'ailleurs en prises avec le dispositif juridique du copyright, comme l'atteste la réaction des ayant-droits à Katz, envoyé au pilon. Face à ces deux formes de destruction (destruction de l'œuvre détourné et, retour du bâton, pilonnage du détournement), MetaKatz s'offre une double portée réflexive qui couvre toute la portée du geste destructeur au cœur du détournement, un acte qui se veut en même temps être une forme d'engendrement, puisqu'il ouvre à de nouveaux dispositifs, à de nouvelles images, et à de nouvelles lectures. Notre communication mettra donc en parallèle les œuvres d'Ilan Manouach et de Jochen Gerner afin d'examiner comment la question de la destruction se trouve au cœur du détournement, et de façon plus spécifique, comment celle-ci relève d'un rapport complexe à la matérialité du médium dont nous étudierons les enjeux.

Bulk High-Temperature Superconductors (HTS) can be used as efficient passive magnetic shields with performances exceeding those of conventional ferromagnetic materials. The most common geometry for a superconducting shield is a bulk hollow cylinder. In this work, we investigate the magnetic shielding properties when the tube is not in the virgin state. Such a situation happens in practice when the tube has been initially subjected to a first magnetic field. The induced superconducting currents that are flowing in the tube generate a trapped magnetic moment which may deteriorate the shielding of a second field. Here we study experimentally how an initial trapped moment affects the shielding of a magnetic field, when they are both perpendicular to each other. In particular, we focus on the effect of an axial trapped moment on the transverse shielding performances and on the effect of a transverse trapped field on the axial or the transverse shielding performances. Finally, we show how the pristine state of the tube can be restored when applying an external field of adequate amplitude. The consequence for practical applications is that it is possible to recover shielding properties similar to those obtained in the virgin state without heating up the shield above its critical temperature TC.

Climate change is now widely recognized as a key driver of migration and displacement in many regions of the world. At the same time, the public health community is investigating the health impacts of climate change, but these three dimensions have not often been linked. Climate and migration have got a complex, non-linear and unpredictable relationship that is caused by or causes many issues but also opportunities. Migration related to climate change impacts health, but at the same time it can create opportunities to improve health security. As an example for adverse health effects, the (re)mergence of vector-borne diseases driven by climate change might be amplified by migration flows to new territories. If food security has been addressed many times as a direct consequence of disruption of agricultural activities, other socio-economical, anthropological and political issues are often set aside. On the other hand, migration could mean better life and better access to health services. Adopting a transdisciplinary approach could help understand the unclear and unpredictable nature and dynamics of human migration as a consequence of climate change. This conference will bring together scientists and experts to share, better understand, and advise, through a transdisciplinary approach, some tangible solutions to enhance the health context of climate migrants. The two round table topics will include: migration as an adaptation strategy against climate change, climate migration and its impacts on health as well as open questions aimed at discussing the future research priorities for global health.

The conference focused on international relations, strategic policies and security issues, such as the birth and evolution of Islamic State. The speech was about international sanctions adopted for guaranteeing peace and security. The legal framework has been analyzed, together with the political, economic and social effects of trade sanctions (such as embargoes) both from the perspective of sanctioning States and sanctioned ones.

Deletion of the growth hormone-releasing hormone gene (Ghrh) results in a severe deficiency of the somatotrope GHRH-GH-IGF-1 axis causing dwarf phenotype that can be reversed by GH or GHRH supplementation (Alba & Salvatori, Endocrinology 2004;145:4134). In basal conditions, the immunological phenotype of Ghrh-/- mice is not markedly disturbed except for a decrease in B cells and an increase in generation of thymic (t) Treg cells (submitted for publication). These data prompted us to investigate immune responses of Ghrh-/- mice using vaccination and infection by S. pneumoniae as models since the response to both stimuli rely on the innate immune system and B cells. Ghrh-/- mice were unable to trigger production of specific IgM and IgG against serotype 1 pneumococcal polysaccharide (PPS) after vaccination with either native PPS (Pnx23) or protein-PPS conjugate (Prev-13) vaccines. A short GH supplementation to Ghrh-/- mice (1 daily injection of 1 mg/kg GH for 4 weeks) restored IgM and IgG response to Pnx23 vaccine but not to Prev-13. This suggests that GH differently impacts on B-1, marginal zone B-2 or innate B-1 B cells. Furthermore, after intranasal instillation of a non-lethal dose of serotype 1 S. pneumoniae, Ghrh-/- mice exhibited a dramatic susceptibility reflected by bacteremia 24h after infection and a survival limit of 72 h, compared to WT C57BL/6 mice that need only 24h to clear infection. The possible impact of GH deficiency on components of the innate immune system that play an important role in defense of the respiratory tract against pneumococcal infection is under current investigation.
