Which Infrastructure for Which Forest Function? Analyzing the Multifunctionality Through the Social-Ecological System Framework

Authors: Mojtaba Houballah, Jean-Denis Mathias, Thomas Cordonnier
Comments: 30 Pages.

Landscapes are subjected to ecological and socio-economic forces of change, interacting in complex ways. To cope with these changes, landscape planning of natural resource management consists of integrating socio-cultural, ecological, and economic considerations in an analytic and systemic way. In this vein, social-ecological systems (SES) frameworks have been developed to help in analyzing key factors that derive the dynamics of such complex adaptive systems. For forests, multi-functional management, which also highlights the ecological and the socio-economic roles of forests for society, has become a central objective for several European countries (e.g. France, Italy, Germany). However, tools and conceptual approaches related to SES frameworks that enable us to understand the mechanisms behind such management approaches are still lacking. This study adopts Ostrom’s SES framework and Anderies robustness framework to highlight how forestry institutions affect forest ecosystem, forest functions, and social arrangements. As an illustration, we apply our analysis to the Quatre-Montagne forest, located in the South-East of France, where multifunctional forest management is a major objective. We first consider the SES framework to construct a diagnosis of the Quatre-Montagne forest specifying the first-tier and second-tier variables. From this analysis, we highlight the importance of physical/social infrastructures in shaping the interactions between components of the SES. We outline that the robustness framework, developed by Anderies, serves to better explain management options of an ecologically-based SES. We discuss implications, based on our infrastructure analysis, which can be used when establishing management design for efficient forest management.

维利里奥论“义肢”

Authors: 郑兴
Comments: 17 Pages.

维利里奥从“义肢”与“身体”的关系出发,指出“义肢”所带来的种种负面效应:人类逐渐依附于义肢,使得自己对外部世界的直接体验逐步被义肢化的间接体验所侵蚀。这其中,义肢发展到今日,已不单单是传统的手工工具、以及汽车、飞机这样携带着“相对速度”的移动载具,更加值得我们关注的是,已经实现“绝对速度”传导和实现“远程控制”的网络义肢,以及已经觊觎身体内部的内侵式义肢,它们所带来的种种效应更为极端,使得我们所居住的“地域身体”的外部空间和自身动物身体的“内部空间”遭到持续的控制和侵占。不过,与维利里奥相对的是,斯蒂格勒则认为,“义肢”和“身体”并不存在非此即彼的对立关系,而他的隐忧是:今日的种种“义肢”正在被整合到全球资本主义秩序中,一种新的“知识无产化”使无产者被更深层次、更为隐秘地剥削。

保罗·维利里奥论当代艺术

Authors: 郑兴
Comments: 10 Pages.

战争是维利里奥关心的核心议题,他对当代艺术提出的批评,是基于他对战争问题的洞察:两次“世界大战”之后,当代艺术决然不能独善其身,而是必然会在各种作品中留下艺术家对于战争的回应。这其中,令维利里奥的不能接受的是,对身体的觊觎和入侵,竟然在一些当代艺术家的作品中复现。这种对身体的戕害更多地是为了迎合当代的视听技术激增的语境,成为确认自身先锋性的手段:今天,艺术观赏者大多只会耽溺于“真实细节”的过量供应,被“即现”之中的话题制造和情绪煽动而吸引。通过“再现”与观者达成默契已然极为艰难。

维利里奥论海湾战争

Authors: 郑兴
Comments: 15 Pages.

海湾战争对维利里奥来说是真正意义上的第一场现代战争,它完美地演绎了维利里奥的“知觉后勤”的理论,战争中被大规模应用种种的信息技术和卫星技术,标志着“知觉后勤”不再只是当代战争的辅助手段,而是已经从根本上决定了战争的胜负走向。这场战争还是人类第一次通过电视直播让全球观众实时见证大规模军事行动,但这并不能让我们欢呼新闻自由的进步,而只是意味着,美国在发动一种新型战争的同时,也在操作一种新的“影像政治”。我们也看到,新的技术语境下,维利里奥的“消失美学”的概念也在当代战争获得了新的呈现。与此同时,我们通过引入鲍德里亚对海湾战争的论述,进一步凸显了维利里奥与鲍德里亚二者理论背景的差异,这样的比照有助于丰富我们对于这场战争的理解。
