Abstract

This book belongs to a new Series promoted by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Federico II University of Naples, in order to facilitate dialogue among scholars from different disciplines and to encourage interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approaches on topics, both contemporary and historical. The studies collected in this volume offer a graceful synthesis of past and present, as is typical of the humanities, that study human culture in all its form.

Abstract

Dieser Band führt zwei interdisziplinäre Forschungsfelder zusammen: Die Untersuchung der gesellschaftlichen Bedeutung des Internets und die theoretische Diskussion zum Verhältnis von Raum und Gesellschaft. Die räumlichen und gesellschaftlichen Dimensionen des Internets werden anhand physisch-materieller, struktureller, perzeptiver und kommunikativer Aspekte analysiert. Sichtbar wird dabei nicht zuletzt, welche Impulse die Raumdebatte am Forschungsobjekt Internet gewinnen kann.Der erste Teil des Bandes behandelt die Problematik der Verortung des Internets. Der zweite Teil identifiziert auf zweierlei Weise einen strukturgenerierenden Geocode des Internets. Der eingehenden Bestimmung und Untersuchung verschiedenartiger Räume des Internets widmet sich der dritte Teil des Bandes.

Abstract

This volume presents the diverse approaches and achievements of scholars of Asian cultures and languages in today’s global academy. Recent vast increases in student numbers and ethnic diversity have created pressing challenges for a higher education which engages with contemporary concerns for Asian societies as well as for Asian students involved in Western education. This collection of scholarly analyses demonstrates the centrality and significance of Asian Studies and languages for these globalising academic communities. Significantly, it demands a rethinking of traditional ‘intercultural’ education. In so doing, it brings empirical knowledge as well as multicultural interpretation and multilingual expertise to throw new light on the challenges in higher education today, and to open up new understandings of the demands of the future. - Professor John Makeham
