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

Digital technology already has permeated the physical world. Devices such as smartphones, tablets or wearables and online venues like virtual worlds and social networks have penetrated every part of our lives. The contributions to this volume apply innovative forms of ethnographic research to the digital realm. They examine the emergence of new online communities around Greenlandic news blogs or Malaysian LGBT Facebook groups, the rise of transnational migrant networks facilitated by social media, or the representation of conflicts and the proliferation of ideologies within online spaces.

Abstract

Grand Theft Auto, Battlefield, Counterstrike – more and more, violence in computer games is becoming the subject of heated discussion. But what emotional experiences does the playful use of virtual violence make possible? Through participato observation in online games and at LAN parties and analyses of interviews, magazines, and videos, Christopher Bareither presents in detail how millions of people can take pleasure from that which would shock others. By refraining from judgmental cliches, this ethnographic study is able to provide a decisive contribution to a debate at the crossroads of popular culture, politics, and the public sphere.

Abstract

High frequency trading, Google ranking, filter bubble – just three topical examples of the power of algorithms. This title presents a collection of contributions that deal with the historical emergence and wide distribution of algorithms that can be found in various aspects of social life today. They focus on the correlations between algorithmic and non-algorithmic actors and their significance for our daily lives and our social relationships and follow up on the mechanisms with which algorithms – products of a specific global access – frame reality while organizing the way how humans thinks about society. The contributions include case studies on social media, advertising and evaluation but also on mobile safety infrastructures, such as drones.
