Hinsides post-Big Brother-syndromet. Produktion og reception af Big Brother i Nederland
Maarten Reesink
MedieKultur : Journal of Media and Communication Research , 2002,
Abstract: Big Brother er den hidtil st rste succes inden for reality-soap-genren, og det f rste tv-format der aktivt benyttede de nye medier i forbindelse med tv-udsendelserne. Artiklen beskriver, hvordan idéen til programmet opstod, og hvordan programmet blev udviklet op til den f rste transmission i Neder- land i 1999. Desuden skitserer forfatteren de forskellige m der, hvorp pro- grammet blev italesat i pressen op til og under den f rste udsendelses- r kke.
Quando lembrar é amar: tempo, espa?o, memória e saudade nos ritos fúnebres católicos
Reesink,Mísia Lins;
Etnográfica , 2012,
Abstract: death and the “catholic funeral ritual complex” are events that may inspire ethnographic reflections about the relations between death (particularly its ritual dimension), time, space, memory and saudade. here i want to explore some of these possibilities by looking at the events occurring after the death of catholic people in the casa amarela neighbourhood of recife (brazil). it seems to be possible to establish a structural-temporal relationship between these dimensions and hence to construct different times?/?types of memories based upon, on the one hand, an affective dimension (particularly saudade), and, on the other, a ritual dimension (as in the day of the dead), in the production of the “beloved being”.
Reflexividade Nativa: quando a cren?a dialoga com a dúvida no período de Finados
Reesink, Mísia Lins;
Mana , 2010, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-93132010000100007
Abstract: analysis of religious reflexivity has becomes increasingly present in the anthropology of religion, in particular investigations into how practices and beliefs the object of reflection of believers and religious groups. here i turn to ethnographic data to explore the ‘dialogue' between doubt, scepticism and belief in the performance of the catholic ritual of all souls' day at cemeteries in recife, especially the ritual lighting of candles. all souls' day provides an ideal context for discussing the reflexive dynamics of doubt-scepticism-belief of catholics living in recife. the ritual and its reflexive implications cannot be understood without taking into account the representations of these believers concerning the relations between the dead, the living and the ‘other world.'
"Rogai por nós": a prece no catolicismo brasileiro à luz do pensamento maussiano
Reesink, Mísia Lins;
Religi?o & Sociedade , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-85872009000200003
Abstract: the prayer is a ritual phenomenon of fundamental importance within the catholic religious system. an approach inspired by mauss is used here in order to develop an ethnographic analysis of the ritual of prayer as practiced by catholics from the neighbourhood of casa amarela, recife. among other possible modalities, the ritual appears in several modes: simple (as a "minimal gesture"); composite, for example, in the rosary ritual; and, finally, as part of a larger set, as occurs in the relations between the living and the dead where the prayer, in addition to dreams, functions as a communication channel between the living and the dead.
Quando lembrar é amar: tempo, espa o, memória e saudade nos ritos fúnebres católicos When to remember means to love: time, space, memory and saudade in the catholic funeral rituals

Abstract: A morte e o “complexo ritual fúnebre católico” s o eventos que abrem espa o para a reflex o etnográfica sobre possíveis rela es entre a morte (em especial sua dimens o ritual), o tempo, o espa o, a memória e a saudade. Este texto pretende assim explorar essas possibilidades, a partir dos eventos de mortes nas vidas de sujeitos católicos do bairro de Casa Amarela, Recife (Brasil); nesse sentido, parece ser possível estabelecer uma rela o estrutural-temporal em que se percebe a constru o de diferentes tempos / tipos de memórias, cujas bases s o, de um lado, a dimens o afetiva (sobretudo, a saudade) e, de outro, a ritual (como o ritual de Finados), na produ o do “ente querido”. Death and the “catholic funeral ritual complex” are events that may inspire ethnographic reflections about the relations between death (particularly its ritual dimension), time, space, memory and saudade. Here I want to explore some of these possibilities by looking at the events occurring after the death of catholic people in the Casa Amarela neighbourhood of Recife (Brazil). It seems to be possible to establish a structural-temporal relationship between these dimensions and hence to construct different times / types of memories based upon, on the one hand, an affective dimension (particularly saudade), and, on the other, a ritual dimension (as in the Day of the Dead), in the production of the “beloved being”.
Explaining the Linguistic Diversity of Sahul Using Population Models
Ger Reesink,Ruth Singer,Michael Dunn
PLOS Biology , 2012, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pbio.1000241
Abstract: The region of the ancient Sahul continent (present day Australia and New Guinea, and surrounding islands) is home to extreme linguistic diversity. Even apart from the huge Austronesian language family, which spread into the area after the breakup of the Sahul continent in the Holocene, there are hundreds of languages from many apparently unrelated families. On each of the subcontinents, the generally accepted classification recognizes one large, widespread family and a number of unrelatable smaller families. If these language families are related to each other, it is at a depth which is inaccessible to standard linguistic methods. We have inferred the history of structural characteristics of these languages under an admixture model, using a Bayesian algorithm originally developed to discover populations on the basis of recombining genetic markers. This analysis identifies 10 ancestral language populations, some of which can be identified with clearly defined phylogenetic groups. The results also show traces of early dispersals, including hints at ancient connections between Australian languages and some Papuan groups (long hypothesized, never before demonstrated). Systematic language contact effects between members of big phylogenetic groups are also detected, which can in some cases be identified with a diffusional or substrate signal. Most interestingly, however, there remains striking evidence of a phylogenetic signal, with many languages showing negligible amounts of admixture.

Mudando de eixo e invertendo o mapa: para uma antropologia da religi?o plural
Campos, Roberta Bivar C.;Reesink, Mísia Lins;
Religi?o & Sociedade , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0100-85872011000100009
Abstract: the purpose of this paper is to evaluate critically the latest general review of the field of the anthropology of religion practiced in brazil and which was published in the anthology horizons of the social sciences in brazil (martins and duarte 2010). one of the main points that we highlight for discussion in this article is the effect of the homogenization of this field of research in brazil as it is promoted by the review under scrutiny. this equalization passes over a significant part of the work done in the north and northeast of brazil, leaving it invisible, and hence affecting, more fundamentally, the evaluation of the state of the area of research. in a response, we change the focus of analysis and reverse the map (turn it up side down). taking the literature produced in the north and the northeast as the focus of our reflection, we identify some "local agenda" that actually are in dialogue with, and participates in, the contemporary national and international agendas. in conclusion, both as an ethnographic area and as an academic contribution to the literature, the north and the northeast distinctively contribute significantly to the national and international field of the anthropology of religion.

Ureter Smooth Muscle Cell Orientation in Rat Is Predominantly Longitudinal

Abstract: In ureter peristalsis, the orientation of the contracting smooth muscle cells is essential, yet current descriptions of orientation and composition of the smooth muscle layer in human as well as in rat ureter are inconsistent. The present study aims to improve quantification of smooth muscle orientation in rat ureters as a basis for mechanistic understanding of peristalsis. A crucial step in our approach is to use two-photon laser scanning microscopy and image analysis providing objective, quantitative data on smooth muscle cell orientation in intact ureters, avoiding the usual sectioning artifacts. In 36 rat ureter segments, originating from a proximal, middle or distal site and from a left or right ureter, we found close to the adventitia a well-defined longitudinal smooth muscle orientation. Towards the lamina propria, the orientation gradually became slightly more disperse, yet the main orientation remained longitudinal. We conclude that smooth muscle cell orientation in rat ureter is predominantly longitudinal, though the orientation gradually becomes more disperse towards the proprial side. These findings do not support identification of separate layers. The observed longitudinal orientation suggests that smooth muscle contraction would rather cause local shortening of the ureter, than cause luminal constriction. However, the net-like connective tissue of the ureter wall may translate local longitudinal shortening into co-local luminal constriction, facilitating peristalsis. Our quantitative, minimally invasive approach is a crucial step towards more mechanistic insight into ureter peristalsis, and may also be used to study smooth muscle cell orientation in other tube-like structures like gut and blood vessels.
