Aesthetics and Politics: The Afterlives of Oscar Wilde’s The Soul of Man Under Socialism (1891)
Oscar Wilde is regarded as the emblematic figure of Aestheticism and Art for Art’s sake and thus of the autonomisation of the arts in late nineteenth-century Britain.

The subjectivity of climate change in the island. The case of Saint Pierre and Miquelon
Islands are the first to be affected by climate change (CC): their small size, generally low altitudes and external dependence increase their vulnerability to natural, particularly coastal hazards, aggravated by CC (Bertrand and Richard, 2011). Nowadays, the introduction of adaptation to CC is criti...

Frankfurt art history in Nazism: Not what she was?
25 universities offered art history in the Third Reich, one of which was the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Unlike other artistic institutes, the influence of NS cultural policy is hardly studied here. Documents from the Uni archive provide insights. Georg-Swarzenski, a full honorary profes...
If the afflatus of computers has marked the activities of archivists, as we are reminded in this issue about the founding of the Archives de la critique d’art (ACA) in 1989, the development of computer technology, and data-processing, has also transformed the practice of art criticism and the activi...
Woven robot swarm weaves at Algomech (with a little help from their friends)

After a frantic couple of weeks in mass production, a swarm of 8 robots and a may pole invaded the winter gardens, wove and un-wove braids to the sounds of livecoded beats and...
Françoise Sullivan: Artist Present

Art and war: the Syrian case
In Syria, the local art scene was quite remarkable a few months before the February 2011 uprisings. Together with the early stages of Arab modernity in the second half of the nineteenth century and supported during the baathist period by strong investments by the political authorities, Damascus had...
Trouche, L. (2003). It and mathematics environments, what uses do you use for what learning?
mathematics, seen as a parangon of pure sciences, often give the image of science built in poor technological environments; however, they have developed by forging powerful material and symbolic tools for themselves (or by exploiting them). Mathematics teaching is generally more in line with the ima...
Improvement of the recovery of heavy chlorinated organic compounds in saturated porous media by thermal and chemical enhancements : experimental and two-phase flow modeling approaches
Groundwater pollution by chlorinated organic compounds is a major problem. Actually, these particularly toxic pollutants, permanently degrade soil and groundwater quality. Their dispersion (by solubilization and volatilization) from the pollution source zone can generate large contaminants plumes.Ch...
Late Gothic Sculpture in Savoie : Workshops, Artists and Clientele in Chambéry and its vicinity : between 1480 and 1530

The existence of a large...

Fascism and literary criticism. Men, ideas, institutions
Walter Benjamin wrote in The work of art at the time of its technical reproducibility that fascism had esthetised politics and that communism had responded with the politicisation of art. The accuracy of this consideration can explain the current historical and literary interest in the complex links...
