Abstract

Digital Samaritans explores rhetorical delivery and cultural sovereignty in the digital humanities. The exigence for the book is rooted in a practical digital humanities project based on the digitization of manuscripts in diaspora for the Samaritan community, the smallest religious/ethnic group of 770 Samaritans split between Mount Gerizim in the Palestinian Authority and in Holon, Israel. Based on interviews with members of the Samaritan community and archival research, Digital Samaritans explores what some Samaritans want from their diaspora of manuscripts, and how their rhetorical goals and objectives relate to the contemporary existential and rhetorical situation of the Samaritans as a living, breathing people.How does the circulation of Samaritan manuscripts, especially in digital environments, relate to their rhetorical circumstances and future goals and objectives to communicate their unique cultural history and religious identity to their neighbors and the world? Digital Samaritans takes up these questions and more as it presents a case for collaboration and engaged scholarship situated at the intersection of rhetorical studies and the digital humanities.

Abstract

Today, digitization projects in the Humanities require the implementation of larger, supraregional solutions. The contributions in this volume were presented at the conference of the Hamburg State Archives and the Center for the Humanities in the Digital World at the University of Hamburg on April 10 and 11, 2006. They make an interdisciplinary contribution to the required standardisation of corresponding services which can only facilitate the urgently needed exchange of information and make it possible to share structured data.

Abstract

Die vollständige Digitalisierung von Produkten und Prozesse stellt die Medienbranche zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts vor große und zum Teil noch unbewältigte Herausforderungen. Insbesondere bei Inhalte-Intermediären wie Fernsehsendern, Verlagen und Online-Aggregatoren führt dies zu wesentlichen Veränderungen. Deren Analyse war das Ziel des interdisziplinären Forschungsprojektes intermedia an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. intermedia wurde vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung im Rahmen des Schwerpunktprogramms Internetökonomie gefördert. In zehn Teilprojekten wurden Ubiquität und Personalisierung, Interaktvität sowie Konvergenz und andere technische Entwicklungen aus Sicht von Betriebswirtschaftslehre, Informatik und Kommunikations-wissenschaft untersucht. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert ausgewählte Ergebnisse von intermedia speziell für die Praxis. Entscheider erhalten so einen kompakten Einblick in aktuelle Forschungsbemühungen. Träger von intermedia ist das Zentrum für Internetforschung und Medienintegration der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, das die Wirkungen neuer Technologien auf Individuen, Unternehmen, Branchen und die Gesellschaft mit einer Vielzahl von Projekten untersucht.

Abstract

Das Zeitalter der immer weiter fortschreitenden Digitalisierung und die stetige Verbesserung der technischen Rahmenbedingungen bieten Forschungseinrichtung neue Mittel und Wege, ihre gewonnenen Daten zu archivieren und öffentlich zugänglich zu machen. Nicht selten gehen damit rechtliche Problematiken einher. Angefangen bei der Frage, wem denn diese Daten „gehören“ bis hin zu der Problematik, ob bestimmte Daten überhaupt archiviert werden dürfen und wer für einen eventuellen Datenverlust haften muss. Das vorliegende Werk legt dabei besonderes Augenmerk auf die urheberrechtlichen, datenschutzrechtlichen sowie haftungsrechtlichen Problematiken, welche eine digitale Archivierung mit sich bringen kann. Des Weiteren wird beleuchtet, welche Überlegungen im Vorfeld einer Archivierung angestellt werden müssen und welche Maßnahmen getroffen werden sollten, um rechtlichen Schwierigkeiten vorzubeugen. Die Arbeit soll daher auch als rechtlicher Leitfaden für Archivierungsprojekte dienen, weshalb unter anderem auch Vorschläge für die Formulierung entsprechender Vertragsklauseln enthalten sind. Aus diesem Grund wird außerdem ausführlich auf die rechtlichen Konsequenzen von Verstößen gegen urheber- und datenschutzrechtliche Vorschriften eingegangen.

Abstract

In this broad-reaching, multi-disciplinary collection, leading scholars investigate how the digital medium has altered the way we read and write text. In doing so, it challenges the very notion of scholarship as it has traditionally been imagined. Incorporating scientific, socio-historical, materialist and theoretical approaches, this rich body of work explores topics ranging from how computers have affected our relationship to language, whether the book has become an obsolete object, the nature of online journalism, and the psychology of authorship. The essays offer a significant contribution to the growing debate on how digitization is shaping our collective identity, for better or worse. Text and Genre in Reconstruction will appeal to scholars in both the humanities and sciences and provides essential reading for anyone interested in the changing relationship between reader and text in the digital age.

Abstract

Orphan works can prevent the culturally desirable use of pre-existing content. This work treats the problem in a fundamental way. It describes the international developments and different approaches to solving the problem. Specifically, it discusses, how the German regulation (§§ 61 ff. UrhG) not only allows the better use of pre-existing content, but also how it makes it possible to influence copyright practice.

Abstract

Digital technology has made culture more accessible than ever before. Texts, audio, pictures and video can easily be produced, disseminated, used and remixed using devices that are increasingly user-friendly and affordable. However, along with this technological democratization comes a paradoxical flipside: the norms regulating culture's use —copyright and related rights —have become increasingly restrictive. This book brings together essays by academics, librarians, entrepreneurs, activists and policy makers, who were all part of the EU-funded Communia project. Together the authors argue that the Public Domain —that is, the informational works owned by all of us, be that literature, music, the output of scientific research, educational material or public sector information —is fundamental to a healthy society. The essays range from more theoretical papers on the history of copyright and the Public Domain, to practical examples and case studies of recent projects that have engaged with the principles of Open Access and Creative Commons licensing. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the current debate about copyright and the Internet. It opens up discussion and offers practical solutions to the difficult question of the regulation of culture at the digital age. The free PDF edition of this title was made possible by generous funding received from the European Union (eContentplus framework project ECP-2006-PSI-610001).

Abstract

In October 2011, the Representation of the State of Schleswig-Holstein to the Federal Government hosted the conference Power and Impotence of the Archives". Cultural and archival scholars, archivists and academics debated the mission and benefits, responsibility and performance of archives in a widely digitized knowledge society. Archival scholarship in Germany has so far not dealt in detail with the challenge posed by the understanding of the archive in the atmosphere of postmodernity by cultural scholars. With the symposium documented here, the long overdue examination of these positions will now begin. The discussion was conducted in a pragmatic and practice-oriented manner. The contributions combine archival research considerations with the presentation of selected individual topics from archival practice and archive history."

Abstract

There is no doubt that we live in exciting times: Ours is the age of many ‘silent revolutions’ triggered by startups and research labs of big IT companies; revolutions that quietly and profoundly alter the world we live in. Another ten or five years, and self-tracking will be as normal and inevitable as having a Facebook account or a mobile phone. Our bodies, hooked to wearable devices sitting directly at or beneath the skin, will constantly transmit data to the big aggregation in the cloud. Permanent recording and automatic sharing will provide unabridged memory, both shareable and analyzable. The digitization of everything will allow for comprehensive quantification; predictive analytics and algorithmic regulation will prove themselves effective and indispensable ways to govern modern mass society. Given such prospects, it is neither too early to speculate on the possible futures of digital media nor too soon to remember how we expected it to develop ten, or twenty years ago. The observations shared in this book take the form of conversations about digital media and culture centered around four distinct thematic fields: politics and government, algorithm and censorship, art and aesthetics, as well as media literacy and education. Among the keywords discussed are: data mining, algorithmic regulation, sharing culture, filter bubble, distant reading, power browsing, deep attention, transparent reader, interactive art, participatory culture. The interviewees (mostly from the US, but also from France, Brazil, and Denmark) were given a set of common questions as well specific inquiries tailored to their individual areas of interest and expertise. As a result, the book both identifies different takes on the same issues and enables a diversity of perspectives when it comes to the interviewees’ particular concerns.&#xD;&#xD;Among the questions offered to everybody were: What is your favored neologism of digital media culture? If you could go back in history of new media and digital culture in order to prevent something from happening or somebody from doing something, what or who would it be? If you were a minister of education, what would you do about media literacy? What is the economic and political force of personalization and transparency in digital media and what is its personal and cultural cost? Other recurrent questions address the relationship between cyberspace and government, the Googlization, quantification and customization of everything, and the culture of sharing and transparency. The section on art and aesthetics evaluates the former hopes for hypertext and hyperfiction, the political facet of digital art, the transition from the “passive” to “active” and from “social” to “transparent reading”; the section on media literacy discusses the loss of deep reading, the prospect of “distant reading” and “algorithmic criticism” as well as the response of the university to the upheaval of new media and the expectations or misgivings towards the rise of the Digital Humanities.
