Oil, Empire, and Patrimonialism in Contemporary Chad
Stephen P. Reyna
This article concerns a type of change involving implementation of 'traveling models'—procedural cultural plans of how to do some-thing done somewhere elsewhere. Specifically, it concerns the World Bank's traveling model of oil revenue distribution in support of Chadian development. It finds that this model is failing and that dystopia is developing in its stead. A contrasting explanation, which examines the contradictions and consequences of Chadian patrimonialism and US imperialism, is proposed to account for this state of affairs. Finally, the analysis is shown to have implications for conceptualizing patrimonialism and planning development.

De l’affect a l’axiologie
L’objet patrimonial suscite des émotions, qui peuvent être décrites selon leur signe (positif ou négatif), leur contexte (individuel ou collectif, privé ou public), ou les valeurs qu’elles manifestent (authenticité, présence, beauté), relevant chacune d’un «registre de valeurs» spécifique, amplifiées selon deux axes d’extensibilité (temporel, avec l’ancienneté, et spatial, avec la rareté), dépendant de deux «régimes de qualification» (communauté et singularité). Cette architecture conceptuelle, construite inductivement grâce à l’approche pragmatique, permet de définir ce qui autorise la mise en patrimoine, et de comprendre pourquoi l’objet patrimonial suscite de telles épreuves émotionnelles, révélant et réactivant les valeurs qui lui sont associées.
Spaces for Transdisciplinary Dialogues on the Relationship between Local Communities and Their Environment
The Case of a Rural Community in the Calchaquí Valley (Salta, Argentina)
Marta Crivos, María Rosa Martínez, Laura Teves, and Carolina Remorini
Our ethnographic research focuses on the perception and use of components of the natural environment in terms of routine activities carried out by the residents of a rural community in the Calchaqui Valley (Salta, Argentina). Life in this community is characterised by the presence of traditional subsistence activities – agriculture, cattle farming, textile manufacturing and ancestral medical practices – coexisting with business ventures focused on mono-culture and export, tourism centred on landscape intervention and promotion of native products, and the growing key role of public policies in the areas of health and human development. In this context, a joint reflection on viability and sustainability of local and global practices and resources must be undertaken. Implementing intersectoral forums and focus-group discussions, governmental and non-governmental actors, researchers and local people must work conjointly to achieve a fresh patrimonial awareness of livelihood strategies based on their long interaction with a specific environment.
