For those who would seek to influence others, the distribution of ideas is paramount. Similarly, for those holding ambition to secrete knowledge for reasons of authority dissemination is key. The same, however, goes for those who seek to protect the fruits of intellectual labour for reasons of profit or ethical concern. This new volume in the Occasional Table series of critical anthologies focuses attention on the act of distribution as a subject for serious creative consideration and one of great social and economic importance.

This paper aims to discuss some issues related to artists’ signatures during the XIth and XIIth centuries, focusing on a corpus of French inscriptions, broadly neglected in previous works. After a short introduction of the corpus, the second part of the article undertakes to evaluate the writing skills of those who executed these inscriptions. The last part deals with the value of theses signatures, traditionally considered as the artist’s claim of authorship of a work, in order to obtain recognition of his talent and status. However, since the analysis of their exhibition contexts shows that they were often invisible to a large public, and that they were concentrated in symbolic spaces of the church, this study suggests their interpretation from a devotional and eschatological perspective.

The Csf1r locus encodes the receptor for macrophage colony-stimulating factor, which controls the proliferation, differentiation and survival of macrophages. The 300 bp Fms intronic regulatory element (FIRE), within the second intron of Csf1r, is necessary and sufficient to direct macrophage-specific transcription. We have analysed the conservation and divergence of the FIRE DNA sequence in vertebrates. FIRE is present in the same location in the Csf1r locus in reptile, avian and mammalian genomes. Nearest neighbor analysis based upon this element alone largely recapitulates phylogenies inferred from much larger genomic sequence datasets. One core element, containing binding sites for AP1 family and the macrophage-specific transcription factor, PU.1, is conserved from lizards to humans. Around this element, the FIRE sequence is conserved within clades with the most conserved elements containing motifs for known myeloid-expressed transcription factors. Conversely, there is little alignment between clades outside the AP1/PU.1 element. The analysis favours a hybrid between “enhanceosome” and “smorgasbord” models of enhancer function, in which elements cooperate to bind components of the available transcription factor milieu.

The prohibition of slavery is a fundamental norm in contemporary international law. It is an integral part of all major human rights instruments, and it is generally presented as an obligation towards the international community as a whole. Prior to the Second World War and the emergence of international human rights, the international antislavery law was tightly linked to the ambiguous idea of “civilisation” and, more precisely, to the ability of the Western States to define themselves as “civilised nations” as compared to the rest of the world. As a matter of fact, the very notion of “civilised nations” appeared for the first time in the history of international law in the Declaration of the Eight Courts Relative to the Universal Abolition of the Slave Trade of 8 February 1815. Signed at the Congress of Vienna, the Declaration was also the first multilateral instrument that condemned the slave trade. As shown through the book’s systematic survey of relevant State practice (including more than 450 slavery-related treaties and numerous pieces of colonial legislation relating to slavery and forced labour), the antislavery principle proclaimed in 1815 soon gave rise to more stringent and detailed norms. However, its precise scope remained under constant debate. One major question that arose during these debates was whether a “civilised nation” which had formally abolished the institution of slavery but tolerated or used certain forms of forced labour could be accused of having infringed its obligations under international antislavery law. Only in 1945 would the adoption of the Nuremberg Charter bring a positive answer to that question. In short: - First systematic comparative study of slavery and forced labour in international and colonial law before the advent of international human rights - First systematic survey of hundreds of antislavery treaties (including several hundred treaties with non-Western polities).

We derive the hydrodynamic equations with fluctuating currents for the density, momentum, and energy fields for an active system in the dilute limit. In our model, nonoverdamped self-propelled particles (such as grains or birds) move on a lattice, interacting by means of aligning dissipative forces and excluded volume repulsion. Our macroscopic equations, in a specific case, reproduce a transition line from a disordered phase to a swarming phase and a linear dispersion law accounting for underdamped wave propagation. Numerical simulations up to a packing fraction ∼ 10 % are in fair agreement with the theory, including the macroscopic noise amplitudes. At a higher packing fraction, a dense-diluted coexistence emerges. We underline the analogies with the granular kinetic theories, elucidating the relation between the active swarming phase and granular shear instability. [less ▲]

This report aims to introduce, test and discuss a new method of measuring episodic memory in participants with highly restricted verbal abilities. Although an elicited/deferred imitation paradigm has already proposed a successful method of measuring this capacity in infants as young as 6 months old [Bauer, Patricia J. 2006. “Constructing a Past in Infancy: A Neuro-Developmental Account.” Trends in Cognitive Sciences 10 (4): 175–181], it failed to include a measure of capacities crucial for episodic recall, that is: a sense of self, a sense of subjective time and autonoetic consciousness [Tulving, Endel. 2002. “Episodic Memory: From Mind to Brain.” Annual Reviews Psychology 53: 1–25]. We combined developmental and comparative approaches in the altered video task to allow for simultaneous measuring of episodic recall and autonoetic consciousness. Episodic recall was measured via presentation of non-modified and modified recordings of a personal past event after a 24-h delay. The 15-month-old infants were expected to watch the modified video significantly longer than the non-modified video, and so evince the differentiation between them. Alongside, the infants participated in a mirror-mark task (a standard measure of self-recognition) and in a real-time video task (a possible alternative for the mirror-mark task). Results for ‘what’ and ‘who’ were consistent with our expectations. All results, their implications and possible future directions are discussed. [less ▲]

Nationality plays a vital role in the field of investor-state arbitration. Most investment treaties require that, to benefit from treaty protection, an investor must be a national of the home state. Yet, the determination of nationality for investment treaty purposes can be particularly complex, raising a number of unresolved questions of considerable practical importance. One of these questions is whether investors who hold the nationality of both state parties to an investment treaty (i.e. dual nationals) are entitled to sue their own home state where the treaty is silent on the issue of dual nationality. This contribution contends that, when faced with a claim of this nature, arbitral tribunals should apply the well-established customary rule of dominant and effective nationality, and uphold jurisdiction only if the investor maintains a stronger connection with its home state.
