This thesis explores subjectivities shaped by locomotive disability in the post-apartheid city through an ethnography of ordinary life. Locomotive disability encompasses every limitation of mobility due to an infirmity of the lower limbs. In my discussion, it is conceived as a ‘test’ (épreuve), namely an event that interrupts everyday routines and creates tensions between the responsibilities of different actors’ – people with disabilities, families, the state, etc. These tensions are articulated on various levels. In my discussion, I focus on three of them: the political field that determines a certain type of citizenship, the social networks that constitute the person, and finally the understanding people with disabilities have of their personal history. These levels combine to shape people’s subjectivity, and are analysed in a Foucauldian perspective not just as individuals’ relations with themselves, but also with others and the wider world.

Macroporous polymer monoliths are remarkable materials used in several applications such as supported catalysis, chromatography, water purification, gas capture, to name but a few. The emulsion-templated polymerization method, often based on conventional radical polymerization, is a very popular and straightforward approach for preparing such porous polymers. Nevertheless, the demand for more and more sophisticated porous supports with controlled porosity, good mechanical properties and specific surface properties, is increasing and requires the development of innovative synthesis strategies. The present thesis aims to explore the possible benefits of controlled radical polymerization (CRP) for the design of advanced macroporous monoliths via emulsion templated polymerization. In a general approach, copolymers with precise architecture, composition and chain-end functionality, were synthesized by CRP and used as macromolecular surfactants for stabilizing various types of high and medium internal phase emulsion polymerizations. A clear effect of the nature and concentration of the surfactants on the porous structures was emphasized. The physical and chemical anchoring of the macromolecular surfactants at the surface of the porous monoliths was also achieved allowing the functionalization of porous supports while preserving their openness. Finally, specific surfactants were designed by CRP for stabilizing CO2-in-ionic liquid (IL) emulsions which paved the way to the single step synthesis of unique and valuable macroporous poly(ionic liquid)s/ILs gels. Overall, the present work highlights the great potential of CRP for the emulsion-templated polymerization and the production of advanced functional macroporous monoliths. [less ▲]

Immersion is an omnipresent concept in the field of video games: it appears in the players’ debates, in the discourses of the industry, in the press and in the academic research. For developers and journalists, immersion is a recurrent promise repeated at every technological turn: the promise that, one day, technology will allow us to literally enter the fictional worlds. In the academic field, the term is also at the centre of many works: researchers in game studies frequently use the concept of immersion to describe the playing activity as a “diving” into a video game universe. However, this notion gives rise to several epistemological issues. First, the word immersion continues to convey negative preconceptions against play and fiction, keeping alive the idea that they are alienating practices. Secondly, in the video games domain, the concept is extremely vague and shape-shifting. Besides, researchers rarely question the desirability of the immersion state: it is most often postulated as the purpose and as the enviable horizon of any gaming practice. As a consequence, the concepts of immersion, fun, pleasure and even of play end up getting confused and superimposed into the theories. This paper will defend the idea that it is necessary to escape from the theoretical paradigm of “immersion”: on the one hand, because it presents some incompatibility with the theories of play, and, on the other hand, because it prevents us from describing the many other forms of relationship that players can have with games.
