Sursis pour la Médiathèque Gaëtan Dostie | Le Devoir | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Soupir de soulagement pour le collectionneur d’objets de poésie Gaëtan Dostie, fondateur de la Médiathèque littéraire qui porte son nom, et le collectif La Passe. La Commission scolaire de Montréal (CSDM) leur a accordé le droit d’occuper l’édifice montréalais du 1214, rue de la Montagne pour six mois supplémentaires. Et ce, à titre gracieux, jusqu’en mars 2017.
Le délai reste court, très court encore pour trouver un nouveau lieu et organiser le déménagement de cette bibliothèque de quelque 50 000 imprimés, de cadres, de manuscrits (dont certains d’Octave Crémazie, de Gaston Miron, de Josée Yvon…), de photos, de livres (dont plusieurs premières éditions), de vidéos, et d’oeuvres d’art.

If History Is a Guide, American Politics Is About to Get Weird | Pacific Standard

If History Is a Guide, American Politics Is About to Get Weird | Pacific Standard | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

This election year has been a weird one. Despite early assurances that Donald Trump had no shot at earning the Republican nomination, the controversial business magnate has, in fact, emerged victorious from the primary. Trump’s unlikely success hints that his particularly crude, off-the-cuff style of politics could be the future for the Grand Old Party. But we might have seen this coming, according to a new analysis: By a number of political measures, this year bears an uncanny resemblance to the transformative 1896 presidential election...

Recent connection between North and South America reaffirmed | Archaeology News Network | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Long ago, one great ocean flowed between North and South America. When the narrow Isthmus of Panama joined the continents about 3 million years ago, it also separated the Atlantic from the Pacific Ocean. If this took place millions of years earlier, as recently asserted by some, the implications for both land and sea life would be revolutionary. Aaron O'Dea, staff scientist at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute (STRI), and colleagues writing in Science Advances firmly set the date at 2.8 million years ago...

Ancient civilization in Mexico bred, ate rabbits | Art Daily

Ancient civilization in Mexico bred, ate rabbits | Art Daily | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

Native people living in the ancient city of Teotihuacan, now a World Heritage site located in modern-day Mexico, likely bred rabbits to eat and used their bones for tools, researchers said Wednesday.
The study in the open-access journal PLOS ONE represents one of the first known examples of small mammal breeding in an indigenous culture that existed from the first to the seventh century AD.
"Because no large mammals such as goats, cows or horses were available for domestication in pre-Hispanic Mexico, many assume that Native Americans did not have...

This time last year, images of Colorado’s Animas River were going viral, leaving many mystified or downright disturbed by the waterway’s Willy Wonka-esque shade of golden orange.

The images were met with outrage: In the last year, there have...

The history of the civil rights movement is commonly illustrated with well-known photographs from Birmingham, Montgomery, and Selma -- leaving the visual story of the movement outside the South remaining to be told. In North of Dixie: Civil Rights Photography Beyond the South, author and historian Mark Speltz shines a light past the most iconic photographs of the era to focus on images of everyday activists who led grassroots campaigns to protest racial discrimination in jobs, housing, education, and policy brutality. These hard fought battles took place in Chicago, Detroit, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, among many other American cities north of the Mason-Dixon Line...

‘Ixcanul,’ From Luminous Ritual to Emotional Explosions | The New York Times | Kiosque du monde : Amériques | Scoop.it

“Ixcanul” means “volcano” in the Kaqchikel language, and the title refers both to the peak that overlooks the Guatemalan coffee plantation where the film is set and to the eruptive emotions at the movie’s core. We see no hint of these, though, as we watch María (María Mercedes Coroy), a young Maya woman, and her parents work the land and care for their livestock. Their actions are languid and explicit; yet there’s a ritualistic precision to the way they slit a pig’s throat and scrape off its hair that’s more hypnotic than repellent...
