Dans le cadre de la littérature de l’exil, il a souvent été question de subjectivités entre-deux, de sujets in-between, et de réflexions entre un « ici » aliénant et un « là-bas » idéalisé. En réaction à cette pensée binaire et suite aux réflexions postcoloniales, les mouvements migratoires sont aujourd’hui célébrés et associés aux figures d’identités composées . Par ailleurs, notre compréhension des migrations a fortement évolué depuis une quinzaine d’années, on ne parle donc plus aujourd’hui de relocalisations unidirectionnelles et permanentes mais plutôt de communauté transnationale et de cultures globalisées selon un agencement postcolonial . C’est dans cette optique que j’observerai quelles sont les différentes masculinités issues de la diaspora dominicaine en confrontation dans le roman de Junot Díaz La Brève et Merveilleuse Vie d’Oscar Wao, et, face à ces tensions de genre, de quelle manière la subjectivité masculine d’Oscar Wao est singulière.

Myeloperoxidase (MPO) is a pro-oxidant enzyme associated with decreased motility in thawed equine semen. This study aimed to describe MPO concentration, activity and subunits in raw and thawed semen and to correlate these data with motilities in raw and thawed semen. Semen samples from five stallions were collected four times. Motilities were assessed in raw and thawed semen. MPO assays were performed in raw seminal plasma, raw sperm-rich pellet and thawed semen. Total and active MPO concentrations were, respectively, assayed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and specific immunological extraction followed by enzymatic detection. MPO subunits present in semen were characterized by Western 3 blot. Purified active MPO was added in PBS and freezing extender to control its activity during freezing procedure. Differences between medians were determined using Kruskal– Wallis test, and correlations were determined using Spearman’s test for nonparametric data. Active MPO concentration was low in seminal plasma and thawed semen, but high in pellet (p = 0.0058), as the opposite relation was observed for total MPO concentration (p < 0.0001). In seminal plasma and post- thaw semen, inactive 86-kDa MPO precursor was mainly observed. Purified MPO activity was decreased in the extender (p = 0.0286). MPO activity in pellet was highly correlated with thawed progressive motility (r = 􏰑0.5576, p = 0.0086). Inac- tive MPO precursor and unknown low molecular weight inactive MPO precursor subunits explain low MPO activity in semen. Major MPO activity was observed in pellet, and post- thaw loss of activity is partially explained by MPO inactiva- tion in extender. Thawed semen motility was negatively correlated with MPO activity in pellet, becoming a potential freezability predictor. [less ▲]

The purine analogs (PAs) cladribine and pentostatin have transformed the prognosis of hairy cell leukemia (HCL). However, some patients still relapse after PAs, or fail to reach an optimal response, and new agents are needed to further improve treatment outcome. We retrospectively studied 41 HCL patients from 10 centers in France and Belgium, who received 49 treatment courses with the anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody rituximab. Most of the patients were treated at relapse (84 % of cases) and rituximab was combined to a PA in 41 % of cases. Overall, response rate is 90 % including 71 % complete hematologic responses (CHRs). Frontline treatment, combination therapy, and absolute neutrophil count were associated with response in multivariate analysis. Three-year relapse-free and overall survivals are 68 and 90 %, respectively. When combined to a PA, rituximab yields a 100 % response rate, even beyond frontline therapy. In contrast, response rate is only 82 % (59 % CHR) when rituximab is used alone. In this latter setting, relapse rate is 56 % and median time to relapse is 17.5 months. All eight patients who were treated two times with the antibody responded again to retreatment. We confirm the high efficacy of the combination rituximab + PA. However, when rituximab is used as monotherapy, response rate is lower and the high relapse rate is a concern. Prospective clinical trials are needed to confirm the superiority of the combination rituximab + PA over PA alone, both as frontline therapy and at relapse. [less ▲]

This volume presents the complete collection of complete pots and profiles (ca. 1800 vessels) dating to the 3rd millennium BC, recovered during the excavations carried out at Tell Beydar during sixteen seasons (from 1992 to 2010). Tell Beydar, located in the syrian Jezirah region was a second rank urban center during the second part of the 3rd millennium BC. The EJZ 3b city has been widely explored by extensive excavations and offered large assemblages of archaeological material. This monograph offers a clear vision of the material culture of the site and allows us to insert it in the cultural landscape of Upper-Mesopotamia during the 3rd millennium BC. [less ▲]

Dopo una introduzione storica e storiografica sul significato dei culti regali ellenistici, l’intervento esamina alcuni dei nomi divini attribuiti ad Arsinoe II nelle fonti letterarie e documentarie, con l’eccezione dell’epiclesi esclusiva Philadelphos. Scopo della ricerca è 1) una valutazione delle strategie di inserimento della nuova dea nel pantheon tradizionale; 2) una riflessione sull’autoconsapevolezza degli antichi in relazione alla propria tradizione religiosa, per come essa si manifesta attraverso l’oculata manipolazione di un elemento essenziale nella definizione della divinità, qual è il nome divino. Un’Appendice elenca, in tre tabelle, tutte le denominazioni greche di Arsinoe II (esclusa Philadelphos), fornendo indicazioni sulla fonte, la sua collocazione spaziale e temporale e sulla divinità tradizionale di riferimento.

Ce volume constitue la publication finale du matériel céramique daté du IIIème millénaire av. J.-C. découvert sur le site de Terqa lors des campagnes 18 à 29. Il présente la typologie qui a été bâtie pour classer l’assemblage de Terqa (un corpus de plus de 800 pots ou profils complets), ainsi qu’une analyse détaillée du matériel, de la chronostratigraphie qu’il a été possible d’affiner grâce à cette étude, et enfin, les réflexions sur son insertion dans la région. En effet, le site de Terqa, situé dans la partie Sud du Moyen-Euphrate, profite d’une position clé à cheval entre deux mondes : la Haute-Mésopotamie et la Mésopotamie centrale. Au terme de cette étude, il est apparu que le site de Terqa s’insère dans la province céramique de Mésopotamie centrale, mais qu’il a néanmoins entretenu des liens très étroits avec la région du Haut-Euphrate syrien, comme en témoignent les nombreuses importations provenant de cette région et découvertes à Terqa.

This paper deals with the research I carried out on domestic architecture and private economy during Early Bronze Age in Upper-Mesopotamia. Archaeological records, as well as textual evidence, has been used to try to define private households activities and their relationships with official institutions. Households were the main source of production, distribution and consumption during the Early Bronze Age. As it seems that these private economic entities produced goods and crafts in their own houses, analyzing domestic architecture could be a way to approach Mesopotamian economic activities. In Northern Mesopotamia the economic system was already strongly articulated; beyond palatial organizations it was also largely based on private group activities, often structured by kinship.
