In this presentation the author explores how various modes of cultural practices – popular literature, press accounts, songs – about and by rural migrant workers revolving around ‘dagong’ (打工) have changed from the late 1980s on. Eric Florence proposes to conceive of these cultural practices as constitutive of ‘networks of practices and communities of interpretations’ (Chartier) where identity-making and state formation engage and shape each other. The case of hegemonic representations of rural migrant workers in South-China will serve to illustrate how rural migrant workers and the values of adaptability and self-reliance they have come to embody have become the exemplary categories prefiguring the end of the life-long employment of the state-owned enterprises workers and their necessary bodily and psychological adaptations to labor market competition. This paper will also provide an opportunity to reflect upon the historicity and great plasticity of categories of representation related to “otherness” and how they may participate to the definition of areas of state intervention, to struggles around social hierarchies and to the constitution of different scales of visibility of social categories within the public sphere.

For the last two decades, in a context of combined flexible capitalism and “decentralized legal authoritarianism” (Lee Ching-Kwan, Against the Law), factories of the Pearl River Delta have been witnessing a growing spate of collective actions by rural migrant workers. In this paper the narrative categories and “frames of contention” mobilized by migrant workers in claim-making will be investigated. The focus is put chiefly on two differently mediated genres of narratives, i.e. migrant workers’ narratives in magazines on the one hand, and more recent online written practices centred on the politics of rights and identity on the other hand. Such cultural politics of migrant labour has been insufficiently taken into account when considering the greater right awareness and surge in collective mobilization in China for the last decade. The paper develops the argument that workers’ written practices within magazines help constituting a space for struggle and negotiation around major values, state polities and legislation linked to workers’ rights. Secondly, drawing on the notion of “disorderly media” (Latham), it is argued that some of the online written practices by migrant workers may provide platforms for more radical articulations of the politics of rights and collective mobilization. What are the points of discursive rupture and contention around which processes of reversal, reapropriation, affirmation or euphemization occur? What kinds of material, socioeconomic and political relations do these identification and legitimization processes reveal? These are the questions that will be investigated. A vast body of data are used for this paper, including songs and poems by rural workers, participant observation, in-depth interviews, published and unpublished letters to the editor of several migrants’ magazines, etc. [less ▲]

Effectiveness of current passive zoonotic disease surveillance systems is limited by the under-reporting of disease outbreaks in the domestic animal population. Eval- uating the acceptability of passive surveillance and its economic, social and cul- tural determinants appears a critical step for improving it. A participatory rural appraisal was implemented in a rural subdistrict of Thailand. Focus group inter- views were used to identify sanitary risks perceived by native chicken farmers and describe the structure of their value chain. Qualitative individual interviews with a large diversity of actors enabled to identify perceived costs and benefits associ- ated with the reporting of HPAI suspicions to sanitary authorities. Besides, flows of information on HPAI suspected cases were assessed using network analysis, based on data collected through individual questionnaires. Results show that the presence of cockfighting activities in the area negatively affected the willingness of all chicken farmers and other actors to report suspected HPAI cases. The high financial and affective value of fighting cocks contradicted the HPAI control pol- icy based on mass culling. However, the importance of product quality in the native chicken meat value chain and the free veterinary services and products delivered by veterinary officers had a positive impact on suspected case reporting. Besides, cockfighting practitioners had a significantly higher centrality than other actors in the information network and they facilitated the spatial diffusion of information. Social ties built in cockfighting activities and the shared purpose of protecting valuable cocks were at the basis of the diffusion of information and the informal collective management of diseases. Building bridges with this informal network would greatly improve the effectiveness of passive surveillance. [less ▲]

In the Italian public debate, the Mediterranean has represented a discursive formation employed to describe the South as the Other of the North. It has been associated with ‘soft’ representations of cultural order and ‘hard’ discourses of civicness that identify the South along a specific set of sociocultural elements, moral norms and forms of civic organization. The Italian city of Naples holds much empirical evidence as an originator of such Mediterranean discursive formation. Since the early 1990s, singer-songwriters and musicians have attempted to transform this discursive formation and to popularize a positive idea of Mediterraneaness on a cultural, ethnic and political dimension. The aim of this article is to explore this process through musical and ethnographic sources. Neapolitan artists Eugenio Bennato, Almamegretta and 99 Posse provide the case studies. [less ▲]

From her very first descriptions of the baboons (in the sixties), Thelma Rowell’s observations contrasted sharply with those of her colleagues (mostly males) working with similar animals. Numerous observers among primatologists and science studies scholars have suggested that women observed differently. For some, womens’ patience makes them ideal observers. Rowell insisted that her challenging ideas about dominance relationships in primates were a result of her having been trained always to question authority. Roswell’s distinction lay in doing the same sorts of things others scientists were doing but for far longer, which enabled her to see more and different results. [less ▲]

The nematocidal agent, Tsukamurella paurometabola C-924, was cultured in a 300 l bioreactor. Spray-dried formulations of this microorganism were prepared using sucrose. At an outlet temperature 628C, survival rates between 12 and 85% were reached with sucrose up to 10% (w/w). The stability study of the powders showed that the best storage condition was at 48C under vacuum. A new method for the calculation of cell death order for bacteria stored at low temperatures was developed. Powders stored under vacuum showed an Arrhenius behavior in relation to cell death kinetics. [less ▲]
