Family photography, a ubiquitous domestic tradition in the developed world, is now more popular than ever thanks to the development of digital photography. Once uploaded to PCs and other gadgets, photographs may be stored, deleted, put in albums, sent to relatives and friends, retouched, or put on display. Moreover, in recent years family photographs are more frequently appearing in public media: on posters, in newspapers and on the Internet, particularly in the wake of disasters like 9/11, and in cases of missing children. Here, case study material drawn from the UK offers a deeper understanding of both domestic family photographs and their public display. Recent work in material culture studies, geography, and anthropology is used to approach photographs as objects embedded in social practices, which produce specific social positions, relations and effects. Also explored are the complex economies of gifting and exchange amongst families, and the rich geographies of domestic and public spaces into which family photography offers an insight.

This book works with two contrasting imaginings of 1960s London: the one of the excess and comic vacuousness of Swinging London, the other of the radical and experimental cultural politics generated by the city's counterculture. The connections between these two scenes are mapped looking firstly at the spectacular events that shaped post-war London, then at the modernist physical and social reconstruction of the city alongside artistic experiments such as Pop and Op Art. Making extensive use of London's underground press the book then explores the replacement of this seemingly materialistic image with the counterculture of underground London from the mid-1960s. Swinging City develops the argument that these disparate threads cohere around a shared cosmology associated with a new understanding of nature which differently positioned humanity and technology. The book tracks a moment in the historical geography of London during which the city asserts itself as a post-imperial global city. Swinging London it argues, emerged as the product of this recapitalisation, by absorbing avant-garde developments from the provinces and a range of transnational, mainly transatlantic, influences.

Little-known, and hidden between skyscrapers and wide avenues, some 650 community gardens dot New York City. Set within one of the densest and most expensive real estate markets, these gardens are attended by some of the least advantaged residents of the city. Urban residents use these spaces for horticulture, recreation, social gatherings, and artistic and cultural events. They manage the gardens collectively and with relative independence from top-down control. Despite continuous threats from market forces the gardens have been able to thrive as significant community spaces since the 1970s. This book shows how, in the process of attempting to protect these highly contested spaces, residents developed as community leaders and urban activists. Taking an interdisciplinary approach to follow the political development of urban residents, the book examines how everyday spatial practices, social interactions, the production of alternative urban space, and the generation of new urban knowledge render community gardeners into important social actors in the urban scene. The book argues that with this process of production of space a new type of ’organic resident’ evolves. These urbanites constantly engage with their urban environment, find ways to make the city more supportive for their collective needs, and produce the city in their own image. Community gardeners as organic residents claim their right to the city, act to materialize their vision of the city, and utilize the special potential of the locale to constitute themselves as powerful social actors on the urban scene.

Welche Konsequenzen wird es haben, wenn in Zukunft die überwiegende Mehrheit der Weltbevölkerung online ist? Wenn Informationstechnologien so allgegenwärtig sind wie Elektrizität? Was bedeutet das für die Politik, die Wirtschaft – und für uns selbst? Diese Fragen beantwortet ein außergewöhnliches Autorenduo: Eric Schmidt, der Mann, der Google zu einem Weltunternehmen gemacht hat, und Jared Cohen, ehemaliger Berater von Hillary Clinton und Condoleezza Rice und jetzt Chef von Googles Denkfabrik. In diesem aufregenden Buch führen sie uns die Chancen und Gefahren jener eng vernetzten Welt vor Augen, die die meisten von uns noch erleben werden. Es ist die sehr konkrete Vision einer Zukunft, die bereits begonnen hat. Und ein engagiertes Plädoyer dafür, sie jetzt zu gestalten – weil Technologie der leitenden Hand des Menschen bedarf, um Positives zu bewirken.

Dieser Band vereint die bedeutendsten Ansätze zur Ritualforschung in einem Band und bringt zum ersten Mal in deutscher Sprache die wichtigsten Beiträge aus dem neuen Forschungsgebiet 'Ritual Studies' zusammen. Über zwanzig Artikel werden in zwei Kategorien aufgeteilt: 'Allgemeine Ritualtheorien' und 'Konkrete Studien zum Ritual in Kultur und Gesellschaft'. Im allgemeinen Teil finden sich neben Klassikern der Ritualforschung wie Clifford Geertz, Victor Turner, Mary Douglas und Erving Goffman auch neuere Autoren wie z.B. der amerikanische Soziologe Albert Bergesen mit seiner Theorie der 'Rituellen Ordnung' (ein Originalbeitrag zu diesem Band), Catherine Bell mit der epistemologischen Theorie der 'Ritualkonstruktion', Caroline Humphrey and James Laidlaw mit der Theorie der 'Rituellen Einstellung' und die umfassende Analyse des Rituals von Jan Platvoet. Im zweiten Teil finden sich Artikel über rituelles Handeln in verschiedenen Bereichen von Kultur und Gesellschaft wie Politik, Psychotherapie, Kunst, Sport, Medien, Literatur, Theater, Recht und Feminismus. Die Herausgeber stellen den Artikeln eine umfassende Einführung in das Gebiet der Ritualforschung voran. Das Buch ist als Handbuch der Ritualforschung für Fachleute und als Basistext für alle, die das Phänomen des Rituals in Religion, Kultur und Gesellschaft näher kennenlernen wollen, konzipiert.

Welche Rolle spielen Bilder für das Verhältnis von Gesellschaft und Raum? Der Band stellt Theorien und Praktiken Visueller Geographien systematisch vor: Neben einer analytischen Diskussion visuell vermittelter Raumkonzepte erkundet er die Erzeugung und Aneignung von RaumBildern in so verschiedenen Feldern wie der Wirtschafts- und Bevölkerungsgeographie, der Stadtplanung, der Kunst im öffentlichen Raum sowie in Sozialisation, Medien und Bildung. Die Beiträge fragen nach den Bedeutungen und Formen Visueller Geographien ebenso wie danach, wie diese gestaltet werden und wie sie uns beherrschen. Ein wertvoller Überblick über ein junges Forschungsfeld!

Beschreibung: This book is a collection of papers in which cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT) is used to study science, technology and innovations. In the 16 chapters of the book an activity theoretical approach is developed through dialogue with the relevant theoretical approaches of science and technology studies, such as actor network theory, symbolic interactionism and Knorr-Cetinas's theory of objectual cultural practice. The book has three parts. The first one comprises empirical studies on creativity and change in research work and innovations. The cases studied include research groups in analytical chemistry, aerosol physics, biotechnology as well as innovations in medical technology by research-based firms. In making sense of the distributed creation, CHAT is put in dialogue with the systemic view of psychology of creativity, the systemic approach in history of technology as well as sociological theories of creativity. The second part compares systematically the similarities and differences between Deweyan pragmatism and CHAT, and shows how they can be used in a complementary way in empirical research. The third part evaluates actor network theory, constructivist conceptions of learning as well as the concept of routine largely used in organizational studies from the position of CHAT. In addition the concept 'object of activity' central in activity theory is discussed and elaborated in two chapters. The autor: Reijo Miettinen is Professor of Adult Education in the University of Helsinki and he was Vice director of the Center for Activity Theory and Developmental Work Research in 1995-2007.
