Abstract

Europe - Space for Transcultural Existence? is the first volume of the new series, Studies in Euroculture, published by Göttingen University Press. The series derives its name from the Erasmus Mundus Master of Excellence Euroculture: Europe in the Wider World, a two year programme offered by a consortium of eight European universities in collaboration with four partner universities outside Europe. This master highlights regional, national and supranational dimensions of the European democratic development; mobility, migration and inter-, multi- and transculturality. The impact of culture is understood as an element of political and social development within Europe. The articles published here explore the field of Euroculture in its different elements: it includes topics such as cosmopolitanism, cultural memory and traumatic past(s), colonial heritage, democratization and Europeanization as well as the concept of (European) identity in various disciplinary contexts such as law and the social sciences. In which way have Europeanization and Globalization influenced life in Europe more specifically? To what extent have people in Europe turned ‘transcultural’? The ‘trans’ is understood as indicator of an overlapping mix of cultures that does not allow for the construction of sharp differentiations. It is explored in topics such as (im)migration and integration, as well as cultural products and lifestyle. The present economic crisis and debt crisis have led, as side-result, to a public attack on the open, cosmopolitan outlook of Europe. The values of the multicultural and civil society and the idea of a people’s Europe have become debatable. This volume offers food for thought and critical reflection.

Abstract

Die zunehmende Verwirklichung des europäischen Binnenmarktes führt zu einem konstanten Anstieg des grenzüberschreitenden Güterverkehrs, insbesondere auch der Gefahrguttransporte innerhalb der Europäischen Union. Mit den längeren grenzüberschreitenden Transportwegen steigt die Gefahr von Unfällen, welche bei Gefahrguttransporten aufgrund des erhöhten Gefahrenpotenzials in der Regel schwerwiegendere Folgen als bei gewöhnlichen Gütertransporten nach sich ziehen. Die daran anknüpfenden, praktisch wichtigen Haftungsfragen für entstandene Schäden Dritter, also der Personen, die nicht am Transportrechtsverhältnis zwischen Absender, Transporteur und Empfänger beteiligt sind, sind Gegenstand der vorliegenden Untersuchung. Behandelt werden alle fünf Verkehrszweige: Straßengüterverkehr, Schienengüterverkehr, Binnenschiffahrt, Seeschiffahrt sowie Luftfrachtverkehr. Dabei konzentriert sich die Darstellung auf bereits bestehende völkerrechtliche Übereinkommen (CRTD, HNS-Übereinkommen, CRDNI-Entwurf, Zweites Römer Haftungsabkommen, Ölhaftungs- und Fondsübereinkommen, Pariser und Wiener Übereinkommen), auch wenn diese größtenteils noch nicht in Kraft und daher in der Praxis nicht anwendbar sind. Die daraus resultierenden Haftungslücken müssen derzeit noch durch das vom nationalen Internationalen Privatrecht berufene nationale Recht geschlossen werden. Wie dies nach geltendem Recht geschieht und welche haftungsrechtlichen Unterschiede sich hierbei hinsichtlich der Haftung für Gefahrguttransporte ergeben, wird exemplarisch am Beispiel der deutschen, französischen und englischen Rechtsordnung dargestellt. Auf der Grundlage der Ergebnisse dieser eingehenden Analyse entwickelt die Verfasserin Vorschläge für die überfällige Rechtsvereinheitlichung auf europäischer Ebene.

Abstract

The different written and archaeological sources give a very heterogeneous picture of the social and religious structures in Eastern Middle Europe. Recent developments in modern archaeological and historical research have shown new approaches to the analysis of elites. In every society there is a leading minority, who cumulates both wealth and prestige and is characterized by an elevated social rank, reputation and acceptance. An external marker of these elites is especially the superregional transfer of certain items, but also of the culturally encoded value systems. The present study asks whether this notion of cultural transfer, developed in the context of modern history, can be applied as well to the study of mutual influences between the elites of medieval Western and Eastern Middle Europe. It also raises the question if this terminology is equally useful for the analysis of written and material sources, and to what extent it might open a new perspective on the rich but as yet often unexplored history of the lands east of the Elbe river.

Abstract

During the Middle Ages, rulers from different regions aspired to an idea of imperial hegemony. On the other hand, there were rulers who deliberately refused to be «emperors», although their reign showed characteristics of imperial rule. The contributions in this volume ask for the reasons why some rulers such as Charlemagne strove for imperial titles, whereas others voluntarily shrank from them. They also look at the characteristics of and rituals connected to imperial rule as well as to the way Medieval empires saw themselves. Thus, the authors in this volume adopt a transcultural perspective, covering Western, Eastern, Northern and Southern Europe, Byzantium and the Middle East. Furthermore, they go beyond the borders of Christianity by including various caliphates and Islamic «hegemonic» rulers like Saladin.
