Abstract

This book addresses the application of computing to cultural heritage and the discipline of Digital Humanities that formed around it. Digital Humanities research is transforming how the Human record can be transmitted, shaped, understood, questioned and imagined and it has been ongoing for more than 70 years. However, we have no comprehensive histories of its research trajectory or its disciplinary development. The authors make a first contribution towards remedying this by uncovering, documenting, and analysing a number of the social, intellectual and creative processes that helped to shape this research from the 1950s until the present day.By taking an oral history approach, this book explores questions like, among others, researchers’ earliest memories of encountering computers and the factors that subsequently prompted them to use the computer in Humanities research.Computation and the Humanities will be an essential read for cultural and computing historians, digital humanists and those interested in developments like the digitisation of cultural heritage and artefacts.

Abstract

Epdf available Open Access under CC-BY-NC licence. There is a demand for a new narrative to enable us to escape from the crisis in our society. This book argues that we need to start with the society we want, rather than framing poverty as a problem to be solved. It calls for a bold forward-looking social policy that addresses continuing austerity, under-resourced organisations and a lack of social solidarity. Based on a research programme carried out by the Webb Memorial Trust involving leading organisations, academics, community activists, children, and surveys of more than 12,000 people living in poverty, a key theme is power which shows that the way forward is to increase people’s sense of agency in building the society that they want.

Abstract

This book draws on award-winning cross-generational research comparing the complex and life-changing processes of settlement among Albanian migrants and their adolescent children in three European cities: London (UK), Thessaloniki (Greece), and Florence (Italy). Building on key concepts from the social sciences and migration studies, such as identity, integration and transnationalism, the author links these with emerging theoretical notions, such as mobility, translocality and cosmopolitanism. Ethnic identities, transnational ties and integration pathways of the youngsters and adults are compared, focusing on intergenerational transmission in particular and recognizing mobility as an inherent characteristic of contemporary lives. Departing from the traditional focus on the adult children of settled migrants and the main immigration countries of continental North-Western Europe, this study centres on Southern Europe and Great Britain and a very recently settled immigrant group. The result is an illuminating early look at a second generation “in-the-making”. Indeed, the findings provide ample grounds for pragmatic and forward-looking policy to enable these migrant-origin youngsters, and others like them, to more fully attain their potential. The book ends with a call to reassess the term “second generation” as it is currently used in policy and scholarly works. Children of migrants seldom see themselves as a particular and homogeneous group with ethnicity as an intrinsic identifying quality. More importantly, they make use of all the limited resources at their disposal, and view their integration processes through broader geographies – showing sometimes a cosmopolitan orientation, but also using localized reference points, such as the school, city, or urban neighbourhood.

Abstract

Wie leben und erleben Jugendliche ihren Alltag? Wie nehmen sie die historischen und heutigen Verhältnisse in Deutschland und in der Welt wahr? Was stiftet für sie Sinn? Welche Lebensentwürfe verfolgen sie? Welche Rolle spielen Mobilität, Nachhaltigkeit und digitale Medien in ihrem Leben?Diesen und weiteren Fragen geht die SINUS-Jugendstudie 2016 empirisch nach und bildet dabei die Vielfalt der Perspektiven jugendlicher Lebenswelten ab. Das gelingt ihr besonders anschaulich, indem sie 14- bis 17-Jährige in Form von zahlreichen Zitaten und kreativen Selbstzeugnissen ungefiltert zu Wort kommen lässt. Einzigartig ist auch, dass Jugendliche fotografische Einblicke in ihre Wohnwelten gewähren und erstmalig selbst als Interviewer ihre Fragen eingebracht haben. Die SINUS-Jugendstudie verleiht der jungen Generation somit eine öffentliche Stimme, die es genau wahrzunehmen gilt. Denn der Blick auf die Jugend ist immer auch ein Blick auf die Zukunft eines Landes.Nach den Vorgängerstudien (2008, 2012) legt das SINUS-Institut bereits die dritte Untersuchung der viel beachteten Reihe „Wie ticken Jugendliche?“ vor.
