e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Sacred Ontology and Desacralised World: Race Trauma in JE Wideman's The Cattle Killing


This essay argues that The Cattle Killing's narrative fluctuates between sacred and profane to illustrate how interwoven threads of violent racial histories perpetuate race trauma. Wideman constructs his protagonist as a Dyonisian hero-albeit a profoundly religious one-with a tragic, far-sighted worldview. This reading engages various perspectives on the sublime (philosophical, aesthetic, psychoanalytic, religious) as a trope for race trauma. Particularly, Mircea Eliade's religious sublime illuminates the novel's sacred ontology as a coping mechanism against the race trauma generated by the desacralized world. But Wideman's postmodern use of the sacred and profane resists a neat oppositional structure. He critiques both the indigenous African spirituality and also the New World's Christian theology in withstanding the traumatizing racial history.
