Abstract

Sounds in Translation: Intersections of music, technology and society joins a growing number of publications taking up R. Murray Schafer’s challenge to examine and to re-focus attention on the sound dimensions of our human environment. This book takes up his challenge to contemporary audiologists, musicologists and sound artists working within areas of music, cultural studies, media studies and social science to explore the idea of the ‘soundscape’ and to investigate the acoustic environment that we inhabit. It seeks to raise questions regarding the translative process of sound: 1) what happens to sound during the process of transfer and transformation; and 2) what transpires in the process of sound production/expression/performance. Sounds in Translation was conceived to take advantage of new technology and a development in book publishing, the electronic book. Much of what is written in the book is best illustrated by the sound itself, and in that sense, permits sound to ‘speak for itself’.

Abstract

Focusing on the social democratic heartland of Western Europe, In search of social democracy gives the first detailed assessment of how the new social democratic revisionism has fared in government. The book begins by considering the causes of the end of social democracy’s golden age and the magnitude of the challenges faced by social democratic parties after the 1970s. It then examines detailed case studies of how particular social democratic parties responded to this changed political terrain. Finally, it contributes to a broader conversation about the future of social democracy by considering ways in which the political thought of ‘third way’ social democracy might be radicalised for the twenty-first century. The contributors offer a variety of perspectives, but are united by the conviction that the themes addressed in this book are crucial to determining the feasibility of more egalitarian and democratic social outcomes than have been possible in the era of neo-liberalism.

Abstract

Gemeinschaft ist wieder Thema. Das gilt gerade auch in den Sozialwissenschaften. Die nach wie vor ungeklärte Frage lautet jedoch: Warum? Dieses Buch bietet eine bisher ausstehende systematische Erklärung zur neuen Gemeinschaftsdiskussion. Grundthese dabei ist, dass die von Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftlern geführte Debatte weniger als wissenschaftliches denn als ideologisches Phänomen zu sehen ist, welches insbesondere aus Perspektive des Wohlfahrtssystems eine wichtige Funktion erfüllt und beobachtbar wird, wenn man die neue Argumentation um Gemeinschaft in Relation zur bisher dominierenden fordistisch-keynesianischen Wohlfahrtsstaatsdoktrin setzt.

Abstract

Die Begriffe "links" und "nicht-antisemitisch" sind längst nicht mehr gleichzusetzen. Dies zeigt sich auch in Argumentationen von Teilen des globalisierungskritischen Akteurs Attac. Aber worin bestehen eigentlich die Verknüpfungen zwischen globalisierungskritischer Rhetorik und antisemitischen Narrativen? Und wie verhält sich Attac selbst zu dem Argument antisemitischer Affinitäten? Holger Knothe geht diesen Fragen nach und analysiert die Positionierungen von Attac zwischen universalistischem Anspruch einerseits sowie Erinnerungsabwehr und stereotypen Wahrnehmungen des Nahostkonfliktes andererseits.
