The present-day theory of image comes in the wake of iconology, by virtue of the explicit re-use of several problematic themes which are central to this method, and permit its critical redevelopment : 1. Reflection about iconic representation, about its relation to language and its specific logic; 2. The investigation into the dynamics of the image (circulation, persistence and development); 3. The study of the effectiveness of images and the production of many different kinds ok knowledge under the effect of editing operations. [less ▲]

Promu par l’Union européenne depuis 2003, le plan d’action FLEGT propose une approche novatrice de lutte contre l’exploitation illégale des forêts, en établissant un lien entre l’amélioration de la gouvernance dans les pays producteurs et l’accès au marché de l’UE. Ce plan concerne tous les titres forestiers, dont les forêts communautaires. Ces dernières ont été désignées au Gabon comme source légale de bois à la faveur des négociations d’un APVFLEGT avec l’UE. Dès lors, et afin de stabiliser le système qui sera mis en place, il est nécessaire de préparer des outils adaptés permettant d’articuler le FLEGT et les forêts communautaires. [less ▲]

Depuis les années 60, la fréquence de mutations organisationnelles de l'enseignement supérieur et universitaire en Belgique s'amplifie et adopte même un rythme frénétique ces dix dernières années. Les causes sont tour à tour l'évolution des professions et la volonté politique et/ou économique de restructuration. Deux niveaux de régulations pédagogiques sont amenés à s'articuler. D'une part, celui de l'enseignant acteur-réflexif de son enseignement et d'autre part, des injonctions externes qui réorganise le cadre général.

The goal of this research is a better understanding of the complex interactions between landuse change and future flood risk. Landuse change is mainly driven by population growth and socio-economic factors. It affects future flood risk by altering catchment hydrology and vulnerability in the floodplains, as well as through the feedback effect that changes in flood hazard may have on landuse evolution. The research is based on a chain of modelling tools, including: stochastic landuse change modelling, traffic modelling as well as Land-Use and Transport Interactions models, continuous hydrological modelling and efficient hydraulic modelling of floodplains inundation. The coupling of these modelling tools will allow assessing direct and indirect impacts of land use change on future flood risk, while considering the uncertainties related to each of these processes and their combinations at a 2100 time horizon.

The morphological acceleration factor (Morfac) has been widely used to speed-up morphodynamic simulations, mostly in coastal applications. The value of Morfac was generally set by trial and error and little theoretical background is available to identify an optimal value of Morfac for a given application and a target level of accuracy. In the present research, we generalize the few previous theoretical analyses regarding two main aspects. First, the range of the considered parameters (Froude number, relative roughness, transport rate …) has been considerably extended to cover typical values characterizing fluvial applications and not only coastal settings. Second, we show that the optimal value of Morfac depends greatly on the specific mathematical formulation of the flow model and on the flow regime. [less ▲]

DUSP3, also called Vaccinia-H1 Related (VHR) is a small dual specificity phosphatase dephosphorylating both tyrosine and serine/threonine phosphorylated residues. DUSP3 plays an important role in cell cycle regulation and is up-regulated in several human cancers. The physiological role of this phosphatase is, however, poorly understood. We have recently generated a DUSP3 knockout mouse by homologous recombination. The obtained mice have no spontaneous phenotype or pathology. However, DUSP3 deficiency prevented neo-vascularization of subcutaneously transplanted Matrigel plugs and Lung Lewis Carcinoma (LLC) tumours, suggesting an involvement of DUSP3 in tumour angiogenesis. Considering the importance of angiogenesis in metastatic formation, our study aimed to investigate the role of DUSP3 in metastatic dissemination. To do so, we used the LLC experimental metastasis model that shortcuts the intravasation/extravasation processes by injecting intravenously the LLC and the B16 (metastatic melanoma cell line) cells. Surprisingly, LLC, but not B16, lung metastasis developed twice faster in DUSP3-KO than WT mice. The enhanced LLC metastatic growth in DUSP3-/- mice was transferable to WT mice via DUSP3-/- bone marrow adoptive transfer, suggesting an involvement of the hematopoietic compartment in the observed phenotype. This was confirmed by a higher infiltration of neutrophils and macrophages in the lungs of DUSP3-KO compared to WT mice after LLC injection. This infiltration was correlated with higher expression of the chemokine receptor CCR2 in LLC-bearing DUSP3-KO lungs macrophages. Interestingly, LLC, but not B16 cells, were found to secrete high level of CCL2/MCP1, the CCR ligand chemokine. In line with this observation, we found that DUSP3-/- bone marrow derived-macrophages have a higher migration potential in response to LLC, but not B16, -conditionned medium. Altogether, our results suggest that DUSP3 plays an important role in metastatic dissemination/growth by a mechanism involving the control of CCR2-CCL2 chemoattraction axis in macrophages. [less ▲]

Far-infrared Herschel PACS imaging and spectroscopic observations of the nebula around the luminous blue variable (LBV) star AG Car have been obtained along with optical imaging in the Halpha+[NII] filter. In the infrared light, the nebula appears as a clumpy ring shell that extends up to 1.2 pc with an inner radius of 0.4 pc. It coincides with the Halpha nebula, but extends further out. Dust modeling of the nebula was performed and indicates the presence of large grains. The dust mass is estimated to be ~ 0.2 Msun. The infrared spectrum of the nebula consists of forbidden emission lines over a dust continuum. Apart from ionized gas, these lines also indicate the existence of neutral gas in a photodissociation region that surrounds the ionized region. The abundance ratios point towards enrichment by processed material. The total mass of the nebula ejected from the central star amounts to ~ 15 Msun, assuming a dust-to-gas ratio typical of LBVs. The abundances and the mass-loss rate were used to constrain the evolutionary path of the central star and the epoch at which the nebula was ejected, with the help of available evolutionary models. This suggests an ejection during a cool LBV phase for a star of ~ 55 Msun with little rotation. [less ▲]

Aujourd’hui inscrite au cœur des cultures télévisuelle et adolescente, la dystopie possède une histoire riche pourtant méconnue. Cette forme d’expression qui mêle projection dans le futur et vision critique d’une société révèle les enjeux majeurs des époques qu’elle a traversées. Explorer ses caractéristiques visuelles sur un siècle, de 1840 à la Seconde Guerre mondiale, permet d’observer les lignes de forces d’un imaginaire central dans la littérature et les arts. L’imaginaire dystopique ne touche pas seulement à l’iconographie. Il concerne aussi les ressources textuelles de la description, la circulation transmédiatique des fictions et la définition même d’un univers souvent improprement qualifié par les étiquettes de fantastique et de science-fiction. Ce volume collectif abondamment illustré offre un aperçu chronologique empruntant ses approches à l’analyse de texte, à l’étude de l’image fixe ou animée, à la sociologie des auteurs et de l’édition, ainsi qu’à l’histoire des représentations. Il se centre sur les aires d’expression française, qui ont leurs propres spécificités, distinctes des réalisations anglo-saxonnes. Envisageant tant les œuvres paralittéraires que celles d’avant-garde, il met à l’honneur une production foisonnante, encore peu étudiée : de Souvestre à Bartosch, sans oublier Henriot et Robida, de l’eschatologie biblique à la poétique des ruines de la ville moderne, en passant par l’archéologie rétrofuturiste et l’imaginaire des fourmis.
