Abstract

Digital technologies and new media are changing the nature of research, teaching, and learning in humanities. Interdisciplining Digital Humanities sorts through definitions and patterns of practice over roughly 65 years of work, providing an overview for specialists and the general audience alike. It depicts both the ways this new field is being situated within individual domains and dynamic crossfertilizations that are fostering new relationships across academic boundaries. It also accounts for digital reinvigorations of “public humanities” in cultural heritage institutions of museums, archives, libraries, and community forums.

Abstract

Die vollständige Digitalisierung von Produkten und Prozesse stellt die Medienbranche zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts vor große und zum Teil noch unbewältigte Herausforderungen. Insbesondere bei Inhalte-Intermediären wie Fernsehsendern, Verlagen und Online-Aggregatoren führt dies zu wesentlichen Veränderungen. Deren Analyse war das Ziel des interdisziplinären Forschungsprojektes intermedia an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. intermedia wurde vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung im Rahmen des Schwerpunktprogramms Internetökonomie gefördert. In zehn Teilprojekten wurden Ubiquität und Personalisierung, Interaktvität sowie Konvergenz und andere technische Entwicklungen aus Sicht von Betriebswirtschaftslehre, Informatik und Kommunikations-wissenschaft untersucht. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert ausgewählte Ergebnisse von intermedia speziell für die Praxis. Entscheider erhalten so einen kompakten Einblick in aktuelle Forschungsbemühungen. Träger von intermedia ist das Zentrum für Internetforschung und Medienintegration der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, das die Wirkungen neuer Technologien auf Individuen, Unternehmen, Branchen und die Gesellschaft mit einer Vielzahl von Projekten untersucht.

Abstract

Film criticism is in crisis. Dwelling on the many film journalists made redundant at newspapers, magazines, and other 'old media' in past years, commentators have voiced existential questions about the purpose and worth of the profession in the age of WordPress blogospheres and proclaimed the 'death of the critic'. Bemoaning the current anarchy of internet amateurs and the lack of authoritative critics, many journalists and academics claim that in the digital age, cultural commentary has become dumbed down and fragmented into niche markets. Mattias Freu, arguing against these claims, examines the history of film critical discourse in France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States . He demonstrates that since its origins, film criticism has always found itself in crisis: the need to show critical authority and the anxieties over challenges to that authority have been longstanding concerns.

Abstract

Russia, one of the most ethno-culturally diverse countries in the world, provides a rich case study on how globalization and associated international trends are
disrupting and causing the radical rethinking of approaches to inter-ethnic cohesion. The book highlights the importance of television broadcasting in shaping national discourse and the place of ethno-cultural diversity within it. It argues that television’s role here has been reinforced, rather than diminished, by the rise of new media technologies.
Through an analysis of a wide range of news and other television programmes, the book shows how the covert meanings of discourse on a particular issue can diverge from the overt significance attributed to it, just as the impact of that discourse may not conform with the original aims of the broadcasters. The book discusses the tension between the imperative to maintain security through centralized government and overall national cohesion that Russia shares with other European states, and the need to remain sensitive to, and to accommodate, the needs and perspectives of ethnic minorities and labour migrants. It compares the increasingly isolationist popular ethno-nationalism in Russia, which harks back to ‘old-fashioned’ values, with the similar rise of the Tea Party in the United States and the UK Independence Party in Britain.
Throughout, this extremely rich, well-argued book complicates and challenges received wisdom on Russia’s recent descent into authoritarianism. It points to a regime struggling to negotiate the dilemmas it faces, given its Soviet legacy of ethnic particularism, weak civil society, large native Muslim population and overbearing, yet far from entirely effective, state control of the media.

Abstract

Ever since the beginning of the twenty-first century, the fairy tale has not only become a staple of the small and silver screen around the globe, it has also migrated into new media, overwhelming audiences with imaginative and spectacular retellings along the way. Indeed, modern fairy-tale adaptations, pervading contemporary popular culture, drastically subvert, shatter, and alter the public’s understanding of the classic fairy tale. Because of the phenomenally increasing proliferation of fairy-tale transformations in today’s “old” and “new” media, we must reflect upon the significance of the fairy tale for society and its social uses in a nuanced fashion. How, why, and for whom have fairy-tale narratives, characters, and motifs metamorphosed in recent decades? What significant intermedial and intertextual relationships exist nowadays in connection with the fairy tale? This Special Issue features eleven illuminating articles of thirteen scholars in the fields of folklore and fairy-tale studies, tackling these and other relevant questions.

Abstract

Museums have always been virtual places – so why do these institutions find it so difficult to use digital media? And what does a museum have to offer to a knowledge-based society whose act of remembering increasingly takes place in the digital domain?

Abstract

Current findings from anthropology, genetics, prehistory, cognitive and neuroscience indicate that human nature is grounded in a co-evolution of tool use, symbolic communication, social interaction and cultural transmission. Digital information technology has recently entered as a new tool in this co-evolution, and will probably have the strongest impact on shaping the human mind in the near future. A common effort from the humanities, the sciences, art and technology is necessary to understand this ongoing co- evolutionary process. Interactivity is a key for understanding the new relationships formed by humans with social robots as well as interactive environments and wearables underlying this process. Of special importance for understanding interactivity are human-computer and human-robot interaction, as well as media theory and New Media Art. »Paradoxes of Interactivity« brings together reflections on »interactivity« from different theoretical perspectives, the interplay of science and art, and recent technological developments for artistic applications, especially in the realm of sound.
