Abstract

Research on real-world problems—like restoration of wetlands, the needs of the elderly, effective disaster response and the future of the airline industry—requires expert knowledge from a range of disciplines, as well as from stakeholders affected by the problem and those in a position to do something about it. This book charts new territory in taking a systematic approach to research integration using dialogue methods to bring together multiple perspectives. It links specific dialogue methods to particular research integration tasks. Fourteen dialogue methods for research integration are classified into two groups:&#xD;&#xD;1. Dialogue methods for understanding a problem broadly: integrating judgements&#xD;&#xD;2. Dialogue methods for understanding particular aspects of a problem: integrating visions, world views, interests and values.&#xD;&#xD;The methods are illustrated by case studies from four research areas: the environment, public health, security and technological innovation.

Abstract

"This book presents current discussions on the concept of genre. It introduces innovative, multidisciplinary approaches to contemporary and historical genres, their roles in cultural discourse, how they change, and their relations to each other. The reader is guided into the discussion surrounding this key concept and its history through a general introduction, followed by eighteen chapters that represent a variety of discursive practices as well as analytic methods from several scholarly traditions. &#xD;This volume will have wide appeal to several academic audiences within the humanities, both in Finland and abroad, and will especially be of interest to scholars of folklore, language and cultural expression.&#xD;"

Abstract

Developing independence as a learner is necessary for becoming a lifelong learner in an increasingly changing world. However, an individual without a community and socially shared learning processes is not an ideal for learning the skills for cooperation, creativity, or solving common problems. This book introduces the readers the perspective of identity development to learning processes, and particularly the questions of learning information literacy. The revised national school curriculum 2014 in Finland (implemented from Fall term 2016) emphasizes developing the students’ metaskills for learning. These metaskills can be described as aptitudes and skills for independent knowledge acquisition, problem-solving and creative thinking. This will act as a framework for the book. &#xD;&#xD;The contents includes discussion on the concepts of identity and information literacy, and their central role in becoming an independent learner willing to share and learn from others. The book also discusses enhancing the identity development processes and reaching the skilled levels of information literacy. &#xD;The book is intended for teachers interested in developing pedagogical practices. It will also help pedagogically thinking information professional to develop their instruction and information training. The ideas and frameworks introduced in the book will also be useful for students in education, informatics and other areas which explore issues of identity development and information literacy.

Abstract

"When considering societal expectations and traditions in research, assumptions are often an integral aspect – particularly in the disciplines pertaining to organization studies. The objective of this anthology is to analyze, clarify and demystify assumptions about research and the way that organizations work.&#xD;&#xD;The book is interdisciplinary in its form and content. The chapters are in part theoretical and analytical, yet draw on various empirical illustrations. In doing so, the book touches on the research process, basic assumptions in research, possibilities as well as pitfalls that both novice researchers as well as more experienced ones ought to keep in mind.&#xD;&#xD;The individual chapters address research and publication through a range of areas and topics including: accounting and management control, examination of the term ‘organization’ itself, and exploration of behavioral and social processes that lead to change in organizations and society as a whole. All of the chapters illuminate different roles in the research process in organization studies.&#xD;&#xD;Dealing with Expectations and Traditions in Research will be of interest to researchers on all levels, including PhD students and master’s students writing term papers and their theses, as well as in methodological courses and discussions."&#xD;

Abstract

Das Buch schildert die verschlungenen Wege der Meeresschnecke Melo im Westteil der Insel Neuguinea, in der indonesischen Provinz Papua. Zahlreiche Etappen dieser Wege durch die zerklüfteten und schwer zugänglichen Bergtäler und an der Südküste der Insel, aber auch in Museumssammlungen in Europa hat die Autorin selbst verfolgt und erforscht. Die Meeresschnecke Melo ist in den Küstengewässern Neuguineas beheimatet. Die kulturellen Erscheinungsformen ihrer Schale wurden aber, wie Museumsobjekte in europäischen Sammlungen belegen, auch in weit abgelegenen Tälern des Hochlandes im Innern der Insel gefunden. Auf den Spuren der Melo-Schnecke hat die Autorin Verbindungen hergestellt zwischen „immobilen“ Museumsobjekten im „Hier“ und dynamischen kulturellen Aneignungs- und Umdeutungsprozessen im „Dort“. So war es ihr möglich, frühkoloniale Verhältnisse, Handelswege, Tauschaktionen, Verwendungs- und Bearbeitungsformen in Neuguinea nachzuzeichnen und mit aktuellen Erscheinungsformen der Schale, etwa im katholischen oder touristischen Kontext, zu kontrastieren. In einer Reihe von Essays beschreibt sie Etappen von Wegen der Melo- Schnecke, die räumlich und zeitlich an unterschiedlichen Punkten einsetzen und enden. Literarisch gefärbte Passagen wechseln sich dabei mit unterschiedlichen theoretischen Ansätzen ab. So ist es gerade das Fragmentarische dieser Ethnografie, welches das Thema immer wieder neu und auf spannende Art zu beleuchten vermag.

Abstract

Seit den 1990er Jahren werden Fragen nach dem Verhältnis zwischen Veränderungen in der naturalen Umwelt und deren literarischen Repräsentationen im Bereich der Literaturwissenschaft unter dem Begriff Ecocriticism subsumiert und diskutiert. In diesem Band werden umwelthistorische Perspektiven ebenfalls in die Diskussion eingebunden. Dabei ist einerseits zu fragen, wie der Wandel im menschlichen Verhältnis zur »Natur« (und den sich wandelnden Bedeutungsnuancen dieses Begriffs) zu unterschiedlichen Zeiten in literarischen Texten verhandelt wird und welche neuen literarischen Ausdrucksformen er womöglich provoziert. Andererseits ist auch zu fragen, wie sich literarische und kulturelle Muster auf die Gestaltung der naturalen Umwelt auswirken können. Inwiefern korrespondieren dabei literarische Modellierungen des Wandels diachron und synchron mit Veränderungsprozessen in der Natur? Diese doppelte Fragestellung schließt auch die Möglichkeit einer wechselseitigen Kritik umwelthistorischer und literarischer Perspektiven ein.
