Abstract

When scholars discuss the medieval past, the temptation is to become immersed there, to deepen our appreciation of the nuances of the medieval sources through debate about their meaning. But the past informs the present in a myriad of ways and medievalists can, and should, use their research to address the concerns and interests of contemporary society. This volume presents a number of carefully commissioned essays that demonstrate the fertility and originality of recent work in Medieval Studies. Above all, they have been selected for relevance. Most contributors are in the earlier stages of their careers and their approaches clearly reflect how interdisciplinary methodologies applied to Medieval Studies have potential repercussions and value far beyond the boundaries of the Middles Ages. These chapters are powerful demonstrations of the value of medieval research to our own times, both in terms of providing answers to some of the specific questions facing humanity today and in terms of much broader considerations. Taken together, the research presented here also provides readers with confidence in the fact that Medieval Studies cannot be neglected without a great loss to the understanding of what it means to be human.

Abstract

The book presents the results of a conference at the DFG Graduate College on "Interdiscipline History of Ecology" held in December, 2008. Nature has always been a definite factor for man as well as for societies, and in spite of many attempts to expand his sphere man has had to submit to nature in the face of catastrophies or the limitations of resources. The book comprises scientific and cultural history articles on mediaeval and modern ages, reflecting in a broad spectrum the topic nature as a borderland.

Abstract

L’archéologie est communément distinguée des autres sciences humaines, en particulier des sciences du passé, par son objet d’étude qui est, par essence, l’homme à travers les vestiges matériels, de l’objet jusqu’au site archéologique et son environnement. Mais alors que ces restes tangibles des sociétés passées sont descriptibles, caractérisables, classables dans des typologies, comment aborder et interpréter les vides et les silences documentaires qui n’ont pas laissé de traces manifestes ? La problématique de l’absence est commune à toutes les approches archéologiques et à toutes les aires chronoculturelles. Dans les articles de ce volume, issus de communications présentées lors de la 12e Journée Doctorale d’archéologie de l’université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (ED 112), les doctorants tentent, à travers des indices indirects, de définir, de mesurer, d’expliquer ces vides et ces silences, voire de les combler. Face à la nature incomplète ou biaisée des sources archéologiques, des solutions méthodologiques sont proposées et appliquées à des problématiques et à des contextes variés, à la faveur d’approches croisées, multidimensionnelles et multiscalaires.

Abstract

The self and how it relates to its surrounding world and history is a main concern of humanities and social sciences. This book addresses the issue by discussing various modes of studying and defining the self, based on a wide span of sources from medieval Western Scandinavia, ca. 800–1500, such as archaeology, art and architecture, documents, literature, and runic inscriptions.

Abstract

En 1986, paraissait l’ouvrage séminal d’Alain Gallay L’archéologie demain. À l’occasion du trentième anniversaire de ce livre, il convient de s’interroger : l’archéologie de demain est-elle devenue celle d’aujourd’hui ? Science en constante évolution depuis ses origines, à l’interface de multiples disciplines avec lesquelles elle partage les outils et les méthodes, l’archéologie contemporaine est une discipline protéiforme. De la fouille au laboratoire, de l’analyse des vestiges à celle des sociétés, les bases méthodologiques sur lesquelles elle repose font désormais appel aussi bien aux sciences humaines qu’aux sciences dites « dures ». La recherche archéologique est aujourd’hui de plus en plus souvent complétée par d’autres approches permettant de produire de nouvelles données, de poser un regard différent sur les données préexistantes ou d’en approfondir l’étude à travers de nouvelles problématiques. Le volume présente les actes de la 11e journée doctorale d’archéologie de l’ED 112. Les articles réunis offrent une réflexion épistémologique sur la discipline archéologique dans son ensemble à travers 3 axes principaux : – Les problématiques, les enjeux et les limites de l’archéologie contemporaine ; – La place de l’archéologie au sein des autres sciences et le rôle de l’interdisciplinarité dans la pratique archéologique comme dans la construction de la discipline elle-même ; – Les démarches intellectuelles de l’archéologue.

Abstract

Sprachtechnologische Standard-Werkzeuge stoßen in den Digital Humanities nicht selten an ihre Grenzen: die untersuchten Texte weichen in zentralen Eigenschaften von den gängigen Entwicklungsdaten ab, oder die zugrundeliegende Forschungsfrage erfordert Werkzeuge für spezielle Analyseaufgaben. Das Center for Reflected Text Analytics (CRETA) entwickelt und erprobt interdisziplinär Methoden, mit denen Werkzeuge und Algorithmen für die Textanalyse entlang der traditionellen fachspezifischen Fragestellungen und Vorgehensweisen angepasst und weiterentwickelt werden. Dabei werden diese Methoden wissenschaftstheoretisch und in ihrer Funktionsweise nachvollziehbar gemacht, um im Zusammenspiel mit Datenvisualisierung und Computerlinguistik durch die Anwenderinnen und Anwender reflektiert eingesetzt werden zu können. Der vorliegende Band führt in Einzelanalysen vor, wie eine interdisziplinär entwickelte und reflektierte Methodologie technische Möglichkeiten integrieren und alternative Blickwinkel auf den wissenschaftlichen Umgang mit Texten eröffnen kann. Er bietet so eine Einführung in den methodisch reflektierten algorithmischen Umgang mit literarischen und nicht-literarischen Texten.

Abstract

This book offers a provocative account of interdisciplinary research across the neurosciences, social sciences and humanities. Setting itself against standard accounts of interdisciplinary 'integration,' and rooting itself in the authors' own experiences, the book establishes a radical agenda for collaboration across these disciplines. Rethinking Interdisciplinarity does not merely advocate interdisciplinary research, but attends to the hitherto tacit pragmatics, affects, power dynamics, and spatial logics in which that research is enfolded. Understanding the complex relationships between brains, minds, and environments requires a delicate, playful and genuinely experimental interdisciplinarity, and this book shows us how it can be done.
