Abstract

Dieses Open-Access-Buch hat das Anliegen, das Zusammenspiel von Wissenschaft, Medien und Öffentlichkeit zu analysieren und nach Wegen zu suchen, es zu verbessern. Die Publikation wurde mit Mitteln der Daimler und Benz Stiftung, der Körber-Stiftung, der Stiftung Mercator sowie der VolkswagenStiftung gefördert und initiiert vom Arbeitskreis „Wissenschaft und Forschung“ des Bundesverbands Deutscher Stiftungen (Leitung: Jörg Klein, Matthias Mayer, Cornelia Soetbeer, Felix Streiter). Nicht nur der unabhängige Journalismus, sondern auch Forscherinnen und Forscher und ihre in jahrelanger Arbeit gewonnenen wissenschaftlichen Ergebnisse werden in Zweifel gezogen und als fragwürdig abgetan. Auch hierzulande finden sich immer mehr Bürger bereit, schulterzuckend an „alternative Fakten“ zu glauben. Neben der Evolutionstheorie reüssiert der Kreationismus, entgegen den Statistiken zum volksgesundheitlichen Wert von Impfungen gewinnen Impfgegner an Boden. Wie können Öffentlichkeitsarbeiter und Journalisten mit dieser brisanten Entwicklung umgehen? Was bedeutet sie für Wissenschaftler, Forschungseinrichtungen, Universitäten oder Stiftungen? Mit welchen Inhalten und mit welchen Medienformaten erreichen sie eine Öffentlichkeit, die zunehmend bereit ist oder auch dazu verführt wird, rasche und eingängige Antworten zu akzeptieren, und sich von einer fundierten Auseinandersetzung etwa mit den Ursachen des Klimawandels nicht selten überfordert fühlt? Wie kann es grundsätzlich gelingen, ein Klima des Vertrauens herzustellen, das letztlich die Basis für solche Diskurse darstellt? Für das Buch Wissenschaft und Gesellschaft: Ein vertrauensvoller Dialog. Positionen und Perspektiven der Wissenschaftskommunikation heute baten die Herausgeber – Dr. Johannes Schnurr (Pressesprecher der Daimler und Benz Stiftung) und Prof. Dr. Alexander Mäder (Professor für digitalen Nachrichtenjournalismus an der Hochschule der Medien in Stuttgart) – Journalisten und Öffentlichkeitsarbeiter, Wissenschaftler, Blogger sowie Vertreter von Stiftungen und Forschungseinrichtungen, zu erläutern, wie sie sich – persönlich – diesem gesamtgesellschaftlichen Trend zur reinen Meinung entgegenstellen und mit welchen Methoden sie das öffentliche Ansehen der Wissenschaft stärken möchten. Der Band beleuchtet die aktuelle Situation aus der Perspektive unterschiedlicher Interessenvertreter in diesen Bereichen und sucht neben einer Bestandsaufnahme nach Lösungsansätzen.

Abstract

This book draws attention to a part of Erik Werenskiold's (1855-1938) art production from the beginning of the 20th century, his prints made between 1908 and 1938. In our time these prints are not particularly well known despite of a relatively large number. The printed works are overshadowed by his more well known book illustrations and his paintings in a naturalistic manner from the last part of the 19th century. The naturalistic manner maintains in his prints but in these works the compositions are less complex compared to the previous. Several graphic works have features in commen with some of Paul Cézanne's paintings, an artist who greately inspired Werenskiold. As a whole Werenskiold's prints rimind us of some of the cultural aspects in the Norwegian society in the early 1900s. This book places Werenskiold's prints in a national and European context. The oeuvre catalog contains 247 works, 85 intaglios and 162 lithographies. Erik Werenskiold's prints have not previously been presented in their entirety.​

Abstract

The introduction to the edited volume Communication and Discourse Theory aims to reflect on the interaction between discourse theory and the study of media and communication, as well as the Brussels Discourse Theory Group’s contribution to it. The chapter starts with a summary of the main tenets of Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory, and touches upon its methodological/analytical translation in discourse-theoretical analysis (DTA). The next main part of the chapter discusses how discourse theory has been put to use for the analysis of communication and media, distinguishing four thematic areas: (1) communication, rhetoric, and media strategies; (2) discourses in media organizations; (3) media identities, practices, and institutions; and (4) media and agonistic democracy. In the next part, two areas that are currently being developed in the group, and have thus far remained under-developed, are singled out theoretically as well as empirically, from a discourse-theoretical perspective. This includes the relation between the discursive and the material, and the relation between media, communication, and audiences. Finally, the chapter provides a short overview of the other chapters in this book.

Abstract

By examining the fiction of three women modernists--Willa Cather, Gertrude Stein, and Nella Larsen--this book complicates binary paradigms of national, gender, and ethnic identities in the interwar period. In place of essentializing categories of identity, Jessica Rabin explores the liberating and dislocating ramifications of using multiple subject positions as a means of representing identity. While these three authors have been studied in non-intersecting categories (pioneer literature, high modernism, and the Harlem Renaissance, respectively), Jessica Rabin traces their similarities, showing how the dispersal of fixed identities are facilitated by the language of fiction.

Abstract

Auguste Comte is widely acknowledged as the founder of the science of sociology and the 'Religion of Humanity'. In this fascinating study, the first major reassessment of Comte’s sociology for many years, Mike Gane draws on recent scholarship and presents a new reading of this remarkable figure. Comte’s contributions to the history and philosophy of science have decisively influenced positive methodologies. He coined the term ‘sociology’ and gave it its first content, and he is renowned for having introduced the sociology of gender and emotion into sociology. What is less well known however, is that Comte contributed to ethics, and indeed coined the word ‘altruism’. In this important work Gane examines Comte's sociological vision and shows that, because he thought sociology could and should be reflexive, encyclopaedic and utopian, he considered topics such as fetishism, polytheism, fate, love, and the relations between sociology, science, theology and culture. This fascinating account of the birth of sociology is an unprecedented introductory text on Comte. Gane’s work is an essential read for all sociologists and students of the discipline.

Abstract

This Open Access biography chronicles the life and achievements of the Norwegian engineer and physicist Rolf Widerøe. Readers who meet him in the pages of this book will wonder why he isn't better known. The first of Widerøe's many pioneering contributions in the field of accelerator physics was the betatron, the second, the linear accelerator, both summarized in a 27 page PhD. The betatron revolutionized the fields of cancer treatment through radiation therapy and also nondestructive testing; hospitals worldwide installed Widerøe's machine and today’s modern radiation treatment equipment is based on his inventions. The most recent renaissance of the linac provides unprecedented x-ray intensities at Free Electron Laser (FEL) facilities in operation and construction worldwide. . Widerøe’s story also includes a fair share of drama, particularly during World War II when both Germans and the Allies vied for his collaboration. Widerøe held leading positions in multinational industry groups and was one of the consultants for building the world's largest nuclear laboratory, CERN, in Switzerland. He gained over 200 patents, received several honorary doctorates and a number of international awards. The author, a professional writer and maker of TV documentaries, has gained access to hitherto restricted archives in several countries, which provided a wealth of new material and insights, in particular in relation to the war years. She tells here a gripping and illuminating story.

Abstract

A higher purpose is not simply about profit. Symbolising the motivations of our actions and efforts, it reflects something much more aspirational and contributes to our global society. This open access book offers novel solutions to ensure employees support a wider organizational meaning whilst guaranteeing that the company benefits from the employee’s individual sense of purpose. Advocating a shift from previous models and theories, this book contributes to debate and offers insight for both scholars and practitioners. The chapters bring together academic rigour and practical models to help readers distinguish between the fads and influential strategies. Exploring the development of purpose at each level of business, from strategy and leadership to communication, this book avoids theoretical jargon and provides new approaches to building sustainable purpose-driven organizations. This is an Open Access book sponsored by DPMC Spain, UIC Barcelona and Corporate Excellence - Centre for Reputation Leadership
