Abstract

In the cultural and social formations of the past, practices exist for the generation and integration of moments having and giving sense with the objective of strengthening the cultural and social cohesion. Such practices and processes have a constructive character, even if this is not always the intention of the actors themselves. As the production of sense is one of the central fields of action of cultural and political practice, the articles examine with an interdisciplinary perspective how, in different contexts, the construction of sense was organized and implemented as a cultural practice.

Abstract

All around the world and throughout history resistance has played an important role – and it still does. Some strive to raise it to cause change. Some dare not to speak of it. Some try to smother it to keep a status quo. The contributions to this volume explore phenomena of resistance in a range of historical and contemporary environments. In so doing, they not only contribute to shaping a comparative view on subjects, representations, and contexts of resistance, but also open up a theoretical dialogue on terms and concepts of resistance both in and across different disciplines. With contributions by Micha Brumlik, Peter McLaren, Gayatri C. Spivak and others.

Abstract

Klavier plus Streichquartett. Im vierstelligen Bereich sind Werke bekannt. In mittlerer dreistelliger Zahl als Tonaufnahme zugänglich. Über 200 Jahre kontinuierliche Produktion. Bis heute. Und doch fehlt das Genre weitgehend in den Leitmedien Klassischer Musik. In den meinungsführenden Feuilletons und Musikgeschichtswerken. Und in den Programmen der prestigeträchtigen Rundfunksender und Labels, Konzertsäle, Festivals und Ensembles. Bis auf die Handvoll Werke berühmter Komponisten, von Schumann über Brahms bis Schostakowitsch. Frédéric Döhl präsentiert ein Nachdenken über Musikgeschichtsschreibung in Zeiten der Digital Humanities – und über die Rolle des eigenen ästhetischen Erlebens dabei.

Abstract

Politische Beteiligung wandelt sich. Der sozialwissenschaftliche Diskurs weist immer wieder auf eine Hinwendung der Bürger_innen zu neuen Formen des Engagements hin, die außerhalb der Einflusskanäle des repräsentativen Systems liegen. Dem Social Web kommt in diesem Prozess eine besondere Bedeutung zu, da es potenziell einen Raum für bürgerschaftliche Bildungsprozesse darstellt. Katharina Witterhold untersucht die dieser Entwicklung zugrunde liegenden Bedingungen am Beispiel politischer Konsumentinnen. Mit dem Blick auf Frauen als Wegbereiterinnen eines neuen Politikstils sowie mit der Entwicklung einer praxeologischen Analyseperspektive auf Alltagspolitik betritt ihre Studie auch theoretisch Neuland.

Abstract

Practices of comparing shape how we perceive, organize, and change the world. Supposedly innocent, practices of comparing play a decisive role in forming categories, boundaries, and hierarchies; but they can also give an impetus to question and change such structures. Like almost no other human practice, comparing pervades all social, political, economic, and cultural spheres. This volume outlines the program of a new research agenda that places comparative practices at the center of an interdisciplinary exploration. Its contributions combine case studies with overarching systematic considerations. They show what insights can be gained and which further questions arise when one makes a seemingly trivial practice - comparing - the subject of in-depth research.

Abstract

Dominant cultural narratives about later life dismiss the value senior citizens hold for society. In her cultural-philosophical critique, Hanne Laceulle outlines counter narratives that acknowledge both potentials and vulnerabilities of later life. She draws on the rich philosophical tradition of thought about self-realization and explores the significance of ethical concepts essential to the process of growing old such as autonomy, authenticity and virtue. These counter narratives aim to support older individuals in their search for a meaningful age identity, while they make society recognize its senior members as valued participants and moral agents of their own lives.
