  • Altés Arlandis, Alberto, 1978-, et al. (författare)
  • Rethinking public space
  • 2010
  • Konstnärligt arbete (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Rethinking Public Space is a research project by Marta Serra Permanyer and Alberto Altés Arlandis that tries to approach the diverse processes of production and transformation of contemporary public spaces as well the relationships that are often established between art, everyday life and the space of the city. The project, that takes a closer look at a series of interventions in the village of Caldes de Montbui (Barcelona) trying to reflect around the idea of hybrid collaborative art practice, has been possible thanks to a research grant obtained from the Sala’d’Art Jove de la Secretaria de Joventut de la Generalitat de Catalunya.The idea was submitted as a proposal to a call for projects during the year 2008 and was selected in the research category. The project has been carefully and attentively tutored by Montse Romaní, who has been able to provide her experience and help in a very generous way while supervising the project.

  • Protein folding and metal ions : mechanisms, biology and disease
  • 2010
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The role of metal ions in protein folding and structure is a critical topic to a range of scientists in numerous fields, particularly those working in structural biology and bioinorganic chemistry, those studying protein folding and disease, and those involved in the molecular and cellular aspects of metals in biological systems. Protein Folding and Metal Ions: Mechanisms, Biology and Disease presents the contributions of a cadre of international experts who offer a comprehensive exploration of this timely subject at the forefront of current research. Divided into four sections, this volume: Provides case study examples of protein folding and stability studies in particular systems or proteins that comprise different metal ions of co-factors Reviews the proteins that shuttle metal ions in the cell to a particular target metalloprotein Illustrates how metal binding can be connected to pathological protein conformations in unrelated diseases, from cancer to protein deposition disorders such as Parkinson's disease Addresses protein redesign of metal-containing proteins by computational methods, folding simulation studies, and work on model peptides -- dissecting the relative energetic contribution of metals sites to protein folding and stability Together, the 13 chapters in this text cogently describe the state of the science today, illuminate current challenges, propose future possibilities, and encourage further study in this area that offers much promise especially with regard to novel approaches to the treatment of some of the most challenging and tragic diseases.

  • AIDS policy in Uganda : evidence, ideology, and the making of an African success story
  • 2010
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This book presents a comprehensive history of Africa's best-known AIDS "success story," from the start of the epidemic in the early 1980s up until 2005. It focuses on the various ways in which evidence and ideology have contributed to AIDS policy in Uganda, and it places the development of the country's innovative prevention and treatment strategies into the context of international, national, and local processes. Through this, John Kinsman shows how the country became an important influence in defining global AIDS control strategies.

  • The Second Journey
  • 2010
  • Bok (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • The second journey is a contemporary journey made in the footsteps of an earlier traveller. The original travelogue, the first journey, functions as a map which guides second travellers not only to their geographical destinations, but also to a sense of authenticity. Although based on ideas of emulation, reiteration and cyclicality, the second journey transforms places which are already figuratively and literally mapped into new landscapes. This study situates second journeys in the textual and conceptual history preceding them, with focus on issues of authenticity, originality and intertextuality. Three case studies illustrate variations on the form. The first contains an analysis of a scientific second journey: Robert Swan and Roger Mear’s In the Footsteps of Scott. This project takes the second travellers along Robert Falcon Scott’s route through Antarctica to the South Pole. The second case study concerns female travellers in West Africa: Mary Kingsley travelling at the end of the nineteenth century and Caroline Alexander emulating the journey a century later in One Dry Season. The third variation on the second journey, a biographical project, is exemplified by Nicholas Rankin’s Dead Man’s Chest. Rankin travels in the footsteps of Robert Louis Stevenson through Europe, North America and to the Pacific Islands. The Second Journey: Travelling in Literary Footsteps sheds light on a largely neglected subgenre of travel literature. It is aimed towards readers with an interest in travel writing, in postmodern developments of the genre, and in how the central issues of originality and authenticity are negotiated in contemporary travel texts.
