Based on ethnographic research among the ex-Gécamines workers of Panda (Likasi, DR Congo), this article studies the dynamics of the spousal relationship in a post-industrial context that has been long characterized by paternalism. The results of this research suggest that, though men and women living in this mining community talk about their spousal relationships by invoking the ideal of Christian marriage promoted during the colonial period, in practice such relationships faced important changes following Congolese independence in 1960. The nationalization and subsequent dramatic decline of Gécamines caused changes which directly affected three central dimensions of the colonial family model, namely monogamy, the ideal of domesticity, and male authority. If men and women continue to reference this model, it is because, in times of growing poverty, it allows spouses to remind one other of their respective duties as docile housewives and responsible husbands, and to command respect as virtuous Christian families in the local community.

This text focuses on how teachers and other institutional actors (such as headmasters, psychologists and social workers) offer guidance to pupils in secondary schools. It stresses the epistemological and empirical challenges inherent in a study of decisionmaking in school guidance as used by teachers, based on field theory. The text begins with a presentation of several sociological studies of how teachers construct their judgments about pupils. It emphasizes the strength of the concept of field as a key to understanding the role played by teachers in the formal process of educational (school) guidance, specifically in the case of the French "Grandes Ecoles". This section goes on to show that, with the weakening of the autonomy of (the) educational institutions, (the) French sociology of education moved away from (the) Bourdieu’s perspective, (and) to focus(ed) on the moral pluralism inherent in education and the ethical tensions that institutional actors face. The second part of the text discusses the findings of socioanthropological fieldwork undertaken in secondary schools in the French Community of Belgium. This section argues that the dynamics of judgments made by teachers today canbest be understood through their structural linkages with the structure of the field of secondary education. [less ▲]

Perception results from a combination of actual data and interpretative schemata based on pre-existing knowledge. Thus, ensuing subjective experience depends on the dynamic interplay between data-driven and conceptually-driven processing. A chronic imbalance between these two sources of stimulus encoding is likely to be maladaptive and could underlie cognitive and behavioral disturbances similar to that observed in schizotypy, especially if the balance is tipped too far towards conceptually-driven processing (i.e., Internal encoding style). This study aimed to examine the relationships between encoding style and various dimensions of schizotypy, by using a questionnaire that evaluates the extent to which pre-existing schemata (versus cues from the outside world) affect encoding processes. Consistent with previous findings, our results revealed that both Cognitive-Perceptual and Disorganization dimensions were related to an internal mode of encoding, suggesting that individuals with these features may be characterized by a disposition to biases at early stages of encoding.

The aphid–ant mutualistic relationships are not necessarily obligate for neither partners but evidence is that such interactions provide them strong advantages in terms of global fitness. While it is largely assumed that ants actively search for their mutualistic partners namely using volatile cues; whether winged aphids (i.e. aphids’ most mobile form) are able to select ant-frequented areas had not been investigated so far. Ant-frequented sites would indeed offer several advantages for these aphids including a lower predation pressure through ant presence and enhanced chances of establishing mutuaslistic interactions with neighbour ant colonies. In the field, aphid colonies are often observed in higher densities around ant nests, which is probably linked to a better survival ensured by ants’ services. Nevertheless, this could also result from a preferential establishment of winged aphids in ant-frequented areas. We tested this last hypothesis through different ethological assays and show that the facultative myrmecophilous black bean aphid, Aphis fabae L., does not orientate its search for a host plant preferentially towards ant-frequented plants. However our results suggest that ants reduce the number of winged aphids leaving the newly colonized plant. Thus, ants involved in facultative myrmecophilous interactions with aphids appear to contribute to structure aphid populations in the field by ensuring a better establishment and survival of newly established colonies rather than by inducing a deliberate plant selection by aphid partners based on the proximity of ant colonies.

In the last three decades, the development of the artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) sector has been increasing in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), bringing more and more urban families into this flourishing business sector, and among them, children. At first glance, one could see children in the mining sector mainly as victims entangled in the flows of raw materials of unbridled capitalism. But this paper aims to look at the often unconceivable, and as a result neglected, social agency of children even when they are involved in stigmatized and prohibited types of child labour. To do so, it relies on the results of a socio-anthropological collective research project on children’s mining activities which was carried out in a small locality called La Ruashi in the city of Lubumbashi (Province of Katanga). The article aims to provide a more comprehensive understanding of what is often normatively only labelled as ‘child labour’ by looking at different spheres of social relations within which children are embedded. Examining the set of social interactions that children have with their families, the broader community and their ‘peers’, several ‘family portraits’ are offered, highlighting a heterogeneity of social interpretations regarding this ‘new’ form of child work. It will be shown that for families from middle-class background, this kind of work is often socially disruptive, at the forefront of inter-generational conflict. As for families from lower classes, social changes induced by children’s mining activities are often better incorporated into the family habitus. Common social changes encountered in all families irrespective of class belonging will also be portrayed, showing the transversal societal impact these ‘new’ forms of child economic activities can provoke at a micro level.

Discours d’escorte visant à encourager la lecture d’un texte et à orienter la modalité de cette lecture, la préface a fait l’objet d’approches structurelles et de réflexions inscrites dans une perspective synchronique. Ce volume collectif, fondé sur des études variées — du point de vue chronologique, géographique et en ce qui concerne la nature même des objets — mais complémentaires, propose de prolonger cette réflexion, en questionnant la manière dont cet objet préfaciel polymorphe, tout en étant soumis à des invariants structurels dont il se plait à éprouver les limites, développe des poétiques susceptibles d’évoluer selon les époques, engage des effets posturaux et se fonde sur des jeux de sociabilité.

L'article envisage de façon conjointe la correspondance de Francesco Guicciardini et les journaux de Marino Sanudo pour la période qui précède immédiatement le sac de Rome de mai 1527, moment critique où se noue un nouvel équilibre entre les forces en présence en Italie. Issus de patries ennemies que la Ligue de Cognac a assemblées autour d’un objectif commun - la défense des intérêts italiens mis à mal - la mise en perspective de leurs écrits offre un éclairage nouveau sur l’entreprise portée par Guicciardini et la perception immédiate de l’événement par les contemporains puisque cette prise rapide, qui suscita stupeur et étonnement, rendit pendant un certain temps les hommes du temps, dont Sanudo, incapables de trancher de la véracité des faits qui leur étaient rapportés. La confrontation de ces deux corpus à caractère «privé» permet en outre de mettre en évidence les disparités de jugement qui peuvent émerger, que l’on soit acteur ou spectateur de l’histoire.

Fixité et mouvement coexistent fréquemment dans l’imagerie antique. Les Blattmasken en sont la parfaite illustration, car ils se caractérisent à la fois par une frontalité presque exemplaire et par un dynamisme végétal insufflé par les feuilles dont ils sont composés. Les quatre exemples choisis pour illustrer ce propos correspondent chacun à une formule particulière d’intégration des têtes végétalisées dans leur environnement immédiat. Celles-ci peuvent en effet être isolées de tout contexte végétal, intégrées dans un décor de rinceaux, ou encore structurellement liées à celui-ci en lui donnant naissance ou en émergeant de l’une de ses volutes. Cette forme de végétalisation de la figure humaine semble se rattacher à une hybridation plutôt qu’à une métamorphose. Cette fusion des règnes humain et végétal révèle une symbolique complexe qu’il conviendra de préciser. [less ▲]
