So Near, Yet So Far: Migration, the Mediterranean, and a Murderous Modernity

Iain Chambers
This postcolonial return operates a cut in the existing epistemological fabric. Understandings of space and time are radically reconfigured. Refused archives emerge.  ...  What until recently was maintained at a physical and metaphysical distance colonialism, racial hierarchies and historical amnesia, has suddenly acquired a dramatic presence with an alarming proximity.  ...  For "scholars are caught in the circularity of the archive and continue not only to operate within it but to operate it.  ...

Learning Proximal Operators to Discover Multiple Optima [article]

Lingxiao Li, Noam Aigerman, Vladimir G. Kim, Jiajin Li, Kristjan Greenewald, Mikhail Yurochkin, Justin Solomon
2022 arXiv   pre-print
, training of the proximal operator converges globally in the over-parameterized setting.  ...  We present an end-to-end method to learn the proximal operator across a family of non-convex problems, which can then be used to recover multiple solutions for unseen problems at test time.  ...  Intuitively, the proximal operator runs a single step of the proximal-point algorithm on an input point, making local improvement without moving too far from the input.  ...

TFIIH Operates through an Expanded Proximal Promoter To Fine-Tune c-myc Expression

A. Weber, J. Liu, I. Collins, D. Levens
2004 Molecular and Cellular Biology  
The general transcription factor IIH (TFIIH) is held at promoters prior to promoter escape and so is well situated to channel the input of activators and repressors to modulate c-myc expression.  ...  Here, we show structural, compositional, and functional differences in transcription complexes between XPB and XPB/wt-89 cells at the native c-myc promoter.  ...  (AW2397/1-1 and AW2397/2-1).  ...
