TL;DR: A tight genealogical link is demonstrated between paper mulberry populations in South China and North Taiwan, and South Taiwan and Remote Oceania by way of Sulawesi and New Guinea, presenting the first study of a commensal plant species transported to Polynesia whose phylogeographic structure concurs with expectations of the “out of Taiwan” hypothesis of Austronesian expansion.
Abstract: The peopling of Remote Oceanic islands by Austronesian speakers is a fascinating and yet contentious part of human prehistory. Linguistic, archaeological, and genetic studies have shown the complex nature of the process in which different components that helped to shape Lapita culture in Near Oceania each have their own unique history. Important evidence points to Taiwan as an Austronesian ancestral homeland with a more distant origin in South China, whereas alternative models favor South China to North Vietnam or a Southeast Asian origin. We test these propositions by studying phylogeography of paper mulberry, a common East Asian tree species introduced and clonally propagated since prehistoric times across the Pacific for making barkcloth, a practical and symbolic component of Austronesian cultures. Using the hypervariable chloroplast ndhF-rpl32 sequences of 604 samples collected from East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Oceanic islands (including 19 historical herbarium specimens from Near and Remote Oceania), 48 haplotypes are detected and haplotype cp-17 is predominant in both Near and Remote Oceania. Because cp-17 has an unambiguous Taiwanese origin and cp-17–carrying Oceanic paper mulberries are clonally propagated, our data concur with expectations of Taiwan as the Austronesian homeland, providing circumstantial support for the “out of Taiwan” hypothesis. Our data also provide insights into the dispersal of paper mulberry from South China “into North Taiwan,” the “out of South China–Indochina” expansion to New Guinea, and the geographic origins of post-European introductions of paper mulberry into Oceania.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors recognize the growing importance of the conception of the individual in order to understand contemporary societies, while focusing on certain impasses arising when socialization and subjectivation strategies are favored to approach this subject matter.
Abstract: This article starts by recognizing the growing importance of the conception of the Individual in order to understand contemporary societies, while it focuses on certain impasses arising when socialization and subjectivation strategies are favoured to approach this subject matter. After formulating some criticism to both of these strategies, the article presents and develops the ways in which individuation allows explaining, at the scale of the individual, the main trials in a specific society, and it analyzes how individuals are able to build themselves as subjects within this framework.

TL;DR: The concept of "inconsistencia posicional" is introduced in this article, where a set of caracteristicas especificas (temor estatutario, vulnerabilidad, exclusion, movilidad, etc.).
Abstract: Sobre la base de una investigacion empirica realizada mediante un centenar de entrevistas semidirectivas con actores pertenecientes a distintos grupos sociales, en este articulo se propone y argumenta el uso de un nuevo concepto para abordar la estratificacion social en la sociedad chilena actual, cual es la "inconsistencia posicional". Con esta nocion se designa un sentimiento de inquietud posicional mas o menos permanente y generalizado en la gran mayoria de los estratos sociales, cuyas caracteristicas especificas lo distinguen de otros procesos similares (temor estatutario, vulnerabilidad, exclusion, movilidad, entre otros). Una experiencia que, aunque comun en su expresion, es empero engendrada por una pluralidad de factores dando lugar a un importante fenomeno estructural.

TL;DR: In this paper, the moral dilemmas that a teacher faces in the classroom when teaching recent history which deals with military regimes, violation of human rights (1973-1990) and the transition to democracy in Chile (1990-2008).
Abstract: This article reviews the moral dilemmas that a teacher faces in the classroom when teaching recent history which deals with military regimes, violation of human rights (1973–1990) and the transition to democracy in Chile (1990–2008). Furthermore, it explores the neutrality of the content taught; the ideological standpoints of the teachers and the students; emotions that emerge; relationships with the victims and so on. These tensions were noted during research undertaken in secondary schools in Santiago, Chile, in 2007. Introducing recent history into curriculum content is a way to teach citizenship education since it enables students to understand how historical processes occur and influence the present and permits understanding of the social context and everyday reality. However, when what is taught from recent history is an account of the violation of human rights, teaching becomes much more difficult and complex and several moral problems arise because of the proximity of the events, diverse interpret...
