Abstract

The volume is dedicated to the professional future prospects of graduates of disciplines in the humanities. This group of academics occupies a special position with regard to the rather diffuse professional fields that humanities scholars expect after receiving their degree. Career prospects are less concrete and, in comparison with university graduates from other disciplines, are more subject to fluctuations in demand from the labour market. "All-rounders" or "generalists" are sought, whose competence portfolios must flexibly meet the requirements of future employers.

Abstract

Das Buch präsentiert eine disziplinäre Vielfalt an Perspektiven auf Unsicherheit in der Wissenschaft. Schwerpunkte sind Klimaforschung, Umweltwissenschaft und Technikfolgenabschätzung. Die Beiträge diskutieren Gründe und Folgen wissenschaftlicher Unsicherheit und einer entsprechenden Verantwortung der Wissenschaft. Vertreten sind Kommunikationswissenschaft, Linguistik, Philosophie, Politikwissenschaft, Soziologie und Volkswirtschaftslehre sowie Chemie und Klimawissenschaft.

Der Band dokumentiert die ungewöhnliche Kooperation zweier Schwerpunktprogramme der Deutschen Forschungsgemeinschaft – «Wissenschaft und Öffentlichkeit» und «Climate Engineering: Risks, Challenges, Opportunities?» –, die sich auf einer Tagung an der TU Darmstadt mit weiteren WissenschaftlerInnen zu Austausch und kritischer Reflexion getroffen haben.

Abstract

The book deals with the situation of humanities scholars in the labour market. The starting point of the seven empirical contributions is the discrimination of humanities scholars in comparison to other university graduates. This is reflected in an above-average unemployment rate, a significantly higher prevalence of precarious employments and often a comparatively low income. The aim of the book is to determine current options and future opportunities for this occupational group on the basis of a broad empirical survey of the humanities.

Abstract

The monograph focuses on the “genius” as a figure of knowledge and representation in two discoursive and medial settings: first, texts from the Humanities and theory of science, in particular published between 1890 and 1920, and, second, subset feature films since the mid-1980ties, which re-echo the ‘cult of the genius’. The “genius” is considered to be a figure by which newly constituted academic disciplines managed to build up their professional identity, legitimated their methodologies, and reassured themselves of their own intellectual and creative powers. Furthermore, the book shows how imaginations of “ingenious” artists and masterminds, that refer to this historical period, are depicted in selected movies since the mid 1980ties.
