Cuts of Meat

Disentangling Western Natures-Cultures

Emily Yates-Doerr and Annemarie Mol

Anthropologists, eager to bring out the originality of the people whom they study, have claimed that in contrast to a singular 'nature' in the West, Amerindian ontologies have many natures. But should fascinating accounts of Amerindian ways of world-making presume so much about the 'West'? is is what we doubt. Taking 'Western' not as a region but as a style, we explore Western animal/human relations by describing various ways of enacting 'meat'. Using excerpts - cuts - from our eldwork materials, we contrast the investment in the tastiness of lambs in a Spanish butcher store with concern for meat contamination in FAO safety regulations. Next, we juxtapose the relevant 'meats' within two classes in a vocational school in the Guatemalan highlands. In one, meat is the centrepiece on a neatly ordered plate, while the other concerns itself with the nutrients that meat contains. 'Western meat', then, is not one. It is multiple.

On 30 October 2008, there was a general strike of school staff in protest

against Law No. 133 (the three-year budgetary law), which was passed

on 6 August 2008, and legislative Decree No. 137 (the so-called Gelmini

decree) of 1 September 2008, which was due to become law on the eve

of the strike. The former measure called for a major reduction in school

personnel, while the latter embodied the education policy of the new

center-right government and the new minister of education, Mariastella

Gelmini. Central elements of the legislation included the introduction

of the so-called single teacher and the restoration of marks awarded for

behavior. The strike was almost unanimous in that it was called by all

the major trade union organizations—a rare occurrence (although the

trade union COBAS had gone on strike alone on 17 October).

Shaping Edits, Creating Fractals

A Cinematic Case Study

James E. Cutting and Karen Pearlman

not simply whether this is the case in a finished film, but whether, in the process of shaping the film's logic, the editor also unconsciously moved toward fractal structures in these material elements as she cut successive drafts. Before delving into
