Abstract

Regions and regionalism have been staples of historical analysis for the Greek world for a very long time. What is meant by a region, however, is not always obvious. The contributions in this volume seek to address the question of defining regions and working out the implications of regionalism along different dimensions of analysis for Asia Minor in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Looking at culture, coinage, political institutions, the papers explore different markers of regional identity, consider ways in which these identities may remain stable or change over time, review the character of the interaction between regional entities and hegemonic powers, and challenge the usefulness in some cases of regional analysis. Questions of ethnicity are also addressed. This volume will be of interest to historians working in Asia Minor and also to anyone concerned with the conceptual questions around regions and regionalism in the Mediterranean world.

Abstract

This is a new approach to one of the greatest political theorists, Antonio Gramsci. Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks are one of the most popular Marxist texts available and continue to inspire readers across the world. Here, Michele Filippini proposes a new approach based on the analysis of previously ignored concepts in his works, creating a book which stands apart.Including chapters on ideology, the individual, collective organisms, society, crisis and temporality, Using Gramsci offers a new pattern in Gramscian studies aimed to speak to the broader audience of social sciences scholars beyond the field of political theory and Marxism, while remaining firmly rooted in his writings. Working from the original Italian texts, Filippini also examines the more traditional areas of Gramsci’s thought, including hegemony, organic intellectuals and civil society.This book will be perfect for all scholars and students of Gramsci’s thought.

Abstract

Seit der Jahrtausendwende gibt es auf der bundespolitischen Ebene in Deutschland ein eigens auf die Engagementförderung fokussiertes Politikfeld. Wie kam es dazu? Wer hat diesen Prozess forciert? Diesen Fragen geht Daniela Neumann durch eine Verknüpfung von Diskurs-, Hegemonie- und Gouvernementalitätstheorie auf den Grund. Anhand der Analyse politisch-medialer Diskurse legt sie den gesellschaftlichen Wandel im Umgang mit Freiwilligenarbeit seit den 1980er Jahren offen und beleuchtet die Deutungs- und Institutionalisierungskämpfe zwischen verschiedenen Interessengruppen. Es zeigt sich: Die Herausbildung einer staatlichen Engagementpolitik war keinesfalls zwangsläufig.

Abstract

Ob auf den Weltmärkten, in der EU oder im Völkerrecht - längst findet eine folgenreiche Verfassungsbildung jenseits des Staates statt. In diesem postdemokratischen Konstitutionalismus wird ein marktliberales Programm zum unbefragbaren Konsens erhoben und mit einem höherrangigen Recht abgestützt. Kolja Möller verbindet systemtheoretische, postmarxistische und demokratietheoretische Ressourcen und zeigt an unterschiedlichen Beispielen: Weder eine Rückbesinnung auf die nationale Demokratie noch die Verbreitung individueller Weltbürgerrechte schaffen hier Abhilfe. Vielmehr braucht es eine destituierende Macht, um die inhaltliche Überformung der Verfassungsbildung jenseits des Staates zu lösen. Die so entstehende neuartige, kritische Verfassungstheorie fordert die aktuellen Verfallsdiagnosen zum Zustand der Demokratie heraus.

Abstract

Ökologische Modernisierung gilt als Leitprinzip zeitgemäßer Umweltpolitik. Die ökomodernen Kernforderungen nach "Sustainable Development" und "Green Economy" zielen auf eine fortschreitende Entwicklung, die um eine Nachhaltigkeitskomponente ergänzt werden soll. Anhand von #on("i")#Carbon Capture and Storage#off("i")# (CCS) fragt Timmo Krüger nach den aktuellen Dynamiken in den Kämpfen um die Hegemonie in der internationalen Klimapolitik. Er zeigt: Da CCS-Technologien auf der fossilen und zentralisierten Energieinfrastruktur basieren, spitzt sich hier die Frage zu, inwieweit es zur adäquaten Bearbeitung der ökologischen Krise einer umfassenden Transformation gesellschaftlicher Strukturen bedarf.

Abstract

Die Schweizerische Volkspartei ist binnen 25 Jahren von einer braven Klientelpartei zum politischen Taktgeber avanciert. Sie ist nicht nur die stärkste politische Kraft des Landes, sondern auch ein Vorbild des europäischen Rechtspopulismus. Marius Hildebrand beleuchtet die Karriere der SVP mithilfe der formalen Populismustheorie Ernesto Laclaus. Im Unterschied zu sozialstrukturellen und ideologiekritischen Analysen, die den Populismus als Anomalie perspektivieren, wird er hier als Effekt einer diskursiven Transformation der politischen Schweiz betrachtet.

Abstract

In this volume of 15 articles, contributors from a wide range of disciplines present their analyses of Disney movies and Disney music, which are mainstays of popular culture. The power of the Disney brand has heightened the need for academics to question whether Disney’s films and music function as a tool of the Western elite that shapes the views of those less empowered. Given its global reach, how the Walt Disney Company handles the role of race, gender, and sexuality in social structural inequality merits serious reflection according to a number of the articles in the volume. On the other hand, other authors argue that Disney productions can help individuals cope with difficult situations or embrace progressive thinking. The different approaches to the assessment of Disney films as cultural artifacts also vary according to the theoretical perspectives guiding the interpretation of both overt and latent symbolic meaning in the movies. The authors of the 15 articles encourage readers to engage with the material, showcasing a variety of views about the good, the bad, and the best way forward.
