Feminist technoscience writer Donna Haraway, and following her, anthropologist
Marilyn Strathern, talk of partial connections (Haraway 1991a; Strathern 1991).
This is partly a matter of partial connections between different people – or
different groups of people. But it is more complicated than this because it also
has to do with partial connections within the sameperson. We do not, this is the
argument, have single identities. Strathern notes, for instance, that Strathern-the-
feminist is not ...

In these communications, Highlanders draw from a pool of ideas that is always
expanding and contracting, as new ideas are substituted for old and circulate
among the interlinked societies. Though she discussed what she calls a "kind of
conventional repertoire," Strathern rejected the idea of a regional highlands
culture in which every society is "a variation on the same theme" (1991, 72-73),
emphasizing instead the "partial connections" that exist among different
populations over time ...

Whenever a new incoming connection was initiated, one of the twelve entries in
the partial table would be filled. TCP is a stateful protocol and requires a three-
way handshake to fully set it up. Until such time that the handshake completes,
the entry is queued up in the partial table. Once the connection is fully set up, the
entry is removed and moved to the system socket table. After a time, some of
these UNIX systems began crashing when thirteen partial connections were
made to ...

nection will have its own VCI, thus allowing the destination terminal to use the
VCI-value for message reassembling and also to respond directly to the source
terminal without the need for initiating the VCI determination procedure (i.e. the
partial connections are bi-directional). The VCI determination procedure is
described below in section 2.2. From the above description it is obvious that the
VCIs used by the TEs is totally local to the access ports. For the switches its only
means is to ...

Carolyn Dinshaw gave the first sustained articulation of this tactile medievalism in
Getting Medieval, where touching consists of "making partial connections
between incommensurate entities" and where a specifically queer touch "showjs]
something disjunctive within unities that are presumed unproblematic, even
natural."1 The Middle Ages have become, in the wake of Dinshaw's account,
particularly well-suited to a queerly tactile historiography because they name and
comprise so ...

Buildings are a materialisationof a set of connections formed betweenhumans
andnonhumans, which are theeffect notonly of the formation of direct linkages (
e.g.through the building of a wall)butalso more partial connections,the results of
processes of translation, such as those which effect the character of spaces. It is
notonly peopleand the fabric of buildings which define their form therefore, but a
whole bundle of associations formed inside and outside of the structure, both

(2) The relationship between things or artefacts is a fragmented network of partial
connections. The nature of the connections between things is not entirely
arbitrary because they build on the material and tangible qualities of the artefacts
themselves and their associative relationships. There is an inherent connection
between form, historical and cultural context and meaning. If I symbolize a human
being with a stick-line diagram showing a head, trunk, two arms and two legs, the

Abstract In connection with partial algebras one has many more relevant
polarities (i.e. Galois connections induced by binary relations) than in the case of
total algebras. On one side there are many different subsets of the set of first
order formulas, which one wants to use as a concept of identity in some special
context, and where one is interested in the closure operators induced by
restricting the validity of first order formulas to this special subset. On the other
hand the polarity ...
