    Critical social scientific research holds that credit–debt is a principal economic and governing relation in contemporary economy and society, but largely neglects money’s role in indebted life. Drawing on qualitative research in the payday loan market in the United Kingdom, the paper shows that borrowers typically relate to loans in monetary rather than financial terms and incorporate them into practices of payment, spending and online banking. To analyse how indebted life is variously experienced and enacted through money, the concept of money culture is developed to refer to money’s culture, money’s meanings and money’s affects. Borrowers enter into and negotiate payday loans through a digitally mediated money culture that both mobilizes and runs counter to money’s powerful fictions as circulating universal equivalent and calculative means of account.

    Como continuación a estudios anteriores sobre la recepción de las Rasā’il Ijwān al-Ṣafā’ en al-Andalus, en este artículo se sostiene que entre los estudiosos andalusíes de la Edad Media era una creencia generalizada considerar al astrónomo Maslama al-Maŷrīṭī (m. 395/1004 o poco después) como el autor no solo de la Rutbat al-ḥakīm y la Gāyat al-ḥakīm – hoy ambas correctamente atribuidas a Maslama Ibn Qasīm al-Qurṭubī (m. 353/964) – sino también de todo el corpus enciclopédico de las Rasā’il. La primera parte del artículo trata de explicar a través de qué serie de sucesivas confusiones estas tres obras llegaron a ser identificadas como los tres escalones de una escalera filosófica y cómo esta trilogía acabó siendo después asignada al científico Maslama al-Maŷrīṭī. La otra parte se centra en dos anotaciones de carácter biográfico que aparecen en las portadas de dos manuscritos de la Rutbat al-ḥakīm, aún inédita. Además de proporcionarnos evidencias adicionales sobre la difusión de esta concepción entre los eruditos medievales, esos documentos también nos ofrecen información interesante y a veces sin igual sobre los dos Maslamas, sus respectivos escritos y seguidores, así como sobre la amplia circulación de las Rasā’il por toda la Península. La edición, traducción y comentario de estas dos anotaciones biográficas son ofrecidas aquí por primera vez.

    When introducing the body as an interpretive framework, it has become almost cliché to cite poet and essayist Adrienne Rich's instruction that we “begin … with the geography closest in.” For well over a decade, scholars have addressed the body and its attendant intimacies as microsites for examining broad sociopolitical systems of race, gender, class, sex, empire, and nation. This focus on the body contributes to the ongoing feminist work of overturning the analytic dichotomy of public and private and has launched a much newer project of approaching our physical selves as historical subjects in their own right.

    La Méditerranée a été de tout temps zone de brassage. La période médiévale a vu s'y déployer bien des migrations, proches par leurs caractères des grands déplacements humains de l'époque contemporaine : flux et reflux des marchands italiens allant s'installer dans les comptoirs d'outre-mer, migrations forcées des Arméniens créant un nouveau foyer en Cilicie, ou des juifs espagnols cherchant refuge dans l'empire ottoman après le décret d'expulsion de 1492, migrations économiques d'Albanais, de Coumans, de Syriens, de Bulgares, ou de gens de guerre pour qui ne comptent que l'aventure et l'appât du gain. Les motivations sont multiples, de même que les itinéraires empruntés. Migrations et diasporas, à l'origine de la création de colonies et de comptoirs, révèlent un système de valeurs et montrent comment les groupements humains assurent la continuité et le renouvellement de leurs propres structures, tout en s'adaptant aux changements imposés par la conjoncture. Le monde méditerranéen fut et demeure le lieu de profonds bouleversements humains que seule une différence d'échelle sépare aujourd'hui de ceux d'hier. Saisir ceux-ci dans leur complexité aide à mieux comprendre le monde contemporain.

    The so-called “national,” or ethnopolitical questions, whose existence has long been denied in Russia, is a significant issue in the Udmurt Republic. The Soviet propaganda machine long advanced the theme of friendship among all the peoples of the multinational USSR until glasnost', when this notion began to be questioned by society. In the minority areas ethnic questions finally emerged at the end of the 1980s and since then have occupied a prominent place in the mass media, in Udmurtia and elsewhere. This article highlights the polemic character of the debate on ethnic issues in Udmurtia, which is located in the Volga-Urals region, against a background of the particular local historical and demographic factors.

    ABSTRACTZeina Abirached's work explores questions of territoriality, both within the space of the narrative and also that of the bande dessinee genre itself: a form that allows her to access traumatic events from another angle. Reconstructing space through drawing—infusing imagination into the narrative—allows Abirached to lay claim to the civil war, as the master of her own narrative, instead of the victim of someone else's domination.I explore the intradiegetic space of Le jeu des hirondelles and its use of maps as an attempt to represent the fractured space of the civil war and regain a mastery of the city from a privileged point of view. Michel de Certeau's L'invention du quotidien proves useful to an analysis of space in this work and the way in which characters use certain “tactics” to work within another's strictly monitored space: “making do” (“faire avec”) as a form of everyday resistance. Just as characters in Le jeu des hirondelles create a space for this resistance to take place, Abirached use...

    This article explores a mysterious but well-studied pictorial subject in Chinese visual art, namely the half-open door. The scene often shows a female figure standing in or emerging from the middle of two door-leaves, suggesting a path or an access to a certain space and also indicating a view incompatible with what the viewer has already seen. This pictorial theme frequently adorns stone sarcophagi and tomb walls in northern China from the late eleventh to the thirteenth centuries. By examining the forms and meanings of the motif, this study attempts to demonstrate the ways in which the half-open door was employed in funerary art and helped people to visualize prevailing ideas about the afterlife.
