. I think I recognised Gasamaza, Munyakazi Martin, Rukeribuga and Munyeragwe among them. We chased Mbangurika. Uwiragiye appeared on his bicycle out of nowhere and he told me ‘If this man escapes, I’m going to hand your mother’s breasts to you.’ So I hit Mbangurika once with my club and he stopped. We took him where the military were, the soldiers told us that they couldn’t waste a bullet on this man and ordered us to take him to the river. I was there with Rukeribuga, Uwiragiye,... When we got to within five meters of the river, Mbangurika ran and threw himself

9 ‘Trying desperately to make myself an Egyptologist’: James Breasted’s early scientific network Kathleen Sheppard Introduction On Tuesday 30 October 1894, James Henry Breasted (JHB) wrote to his parents back in Rockford, Illinois from his steamship in the Mediterranean: ‘Just think of it! I am within a few hours of the shores of Egypt and will soon be among the scenes I have studied so long. It seems hardly credible. Now I hope to use every moment and hasten back to my homeland and all I love as soon as ever I can’ (JHB Papers, Box 4).1 Breasted’s first

Licentiousness in the Streets, Robert Guillou created l’Action théâtrale [Theatrical Action], which claimed “to keep the French from throwing themselves into modern dramatic depravation, which would end by wiping them out like opium did the Chinese in the past.”10 In the other camp, the defenders of chaste and less chaste nudity protested with a surge of comparable passion.11 II  The first judges of chaste nudity On 27 July 1908, the 9th Division of the Criminal Tribunal of the Seine had to decide three cases12 concerning women who had shown their breasts during performances

Gene-expression profiling in early-stage breast cancer

Breast cancer has long been a focus of research and innovation in genomic medicine, from one of the first targeted therapies, Herceptin, as discussed in Chapter 1 , to testing for mutations in breast cancer susceptibility genes such as BRCA1 and BRCA2, which developed through the course of the 2000s. Research into the molecular biology and gene expression of breast cancer tumours has spurred the identification of a range of variants or subtypes of breast cancer according to their molecular make-up. In addition to the development of Herceptin

The politics of food in Maria Edgeworth’s children’s fiction

the Anglo-Irish identity politics which shape her better-known writing. As I will suggest later, part of the point may be that one size of moral child fits all. Her children’s fiction, when it is read at all, is seen to inculcate the precepts of Malthus and Smith in the new generation, sometimes allowing the childless writer to ‘metonymiz[e] the book (or, more precisely the pen) into the figurative breast’. 2 But, as recent accounts of Belinda suggest, Edgeworth views the breast and indeed the rest of the maternal body with suspicion and ambivalence; what she

palaeopathological record demonstrates further examples such as instances of splints used to immobilise fractures, described by Elliot Smith (1908: 732–4). Trauma The Edwin Smith Papyrus is referred to as a surgical papyrus in a number of publications such as those of Breasted (1930), Wilson (1952) and Chapman (1992) but in reality it is an ancient instructional text for the management of trauma to the head, the upper arms and the superior part of the thorax.1 Other than 1 For translations of the Edwin Smith Papyrus see Breasted (1930), von Deines, Grapow and Westendorf (1954

They also create aesthetic forms that facilitate the co-location of knowledges in ways that resist premature ordering. In each case an object provides a starting point: skin, breast cancer, khat.

reports from visitors. At least three intractable problems contributed to high mortality here: the difficulty of recruiting wet nurses of good health and character, willing to work in sordid conditions for paltry wages; the impossibility of finding adequate substitutes for human breast-milk; the high risk of cross infection, especially with skin complaints and venereal disease, which made the task of nursing sickly children especially daunting for anyone not conscripted to perform it. Internal nurses at Santo Spirito in Rome enjoyed little liberty while serving in the

ZDF and ARTE, with whom I’d previously worked successfully, would each put up $150,000. After that I hoped I could get the Brits to come in for another $150,000 or more. I could then make up the residue of the budget from small stations and grants. To prepare for the pitching sessions, and ‘with the hope that blooms eternal within the human breast’, I printed some new visiting cards. They celebrated Beyond the Velvet Curtain, and proclaimed the name of the new company of Daniel and myself, which we’d called ‘Snowrose.’ (Rosenthal and Snowman). I also printed out
