Mobile modernity : Germans, Jews, trains by Todd Samuel Presner( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 1,886 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Treating the German railway as both an iconic symbol of modernity and a crucial social, technological, and political force, Presner advances a groundbreaking interpretation of the ways in which mobility is inextricably linked to German and Jewish visions of modernity. Moving beyond the tired model of a failed German-Jewish dialogue, Presner emphasizes the mutual entanglement of the very categories of German and Jewish and the many sites of contact and exchange that occurred between German and Jewish thinkers." "Rather than a conventional, linear history that culminates in the tragedy of the Holocaust, Presner produces a cultural mapping that articulates a much more complex story of the hopes and catastrophes of mobile modernity. By focusing on the spaces of encounter emblematically represented by the overdetermined triangulation of Germans, Jews, and trains, he introduces a new genealogy for the study of European and German-Jewish modernity."--Jacket
Probing the ethics of Holocaust culture by Wulf Kansteiner( )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Probing the Ethics of Holocaust Culture interrogates the memorial cultures, forms of representation, and emblematic debates that have shaped the field of Holocaust studies over the last twenty-five years. It brings together academics of the eyewitness generation with a new generation of academics, authors, and artists who have challenged the "limits of representation" through their scholarly and cultural practices. These practices span the analogic media of history, literature, and film as well as the nonanalogic world of architecture, digital archives, and geographic information systems. Organized around three interlocking themes--the stakes of narrative, the remediation of the archive, and the politics of exceptionality--the purpose of the book is to investigate the complex question of ethics at the heart of global Holocaust culture and, more broadly, genocide remembrance. Explicitly building upon the debates of the 1990s encapsulated in Probing the Limits of Representation, the present volume probes the ethics of Holocaust culture by focusing on the public memorial cultures, institutional formations, and artifacts of cultural memory and history generated by Holocaust remembrance. The essays in this volume take stock of and critically analyze the practices of representation, the remediation of archives, and the comparative, even relativist, frameworks for confronting (and perhaps unmooring) the uniqueness of the Holocaust.--
The practice of conceptual history : timing history, spacing concepts by Reinhart Koselleck( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Digital_humanities by Anne Burdick( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2019 in English and Czech and held by 426 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Included are chapters on the basics, on emerging methods and genres, and on the social life of the digital humanities, along with "case studies," "provocations," and "advisories." These persuasively crafted interventions offer a descriptive toolkit for anyone involved in the design, production, oversight, and review of digital projects. The authors argue that the digital humanities offers a revitalization of the liberal arts tradition in the electronically inflected, design-driven, multimedia language of the twenty-first century. Written by five leading practitioner-theorists whose varied backgrounds embody the intellectual and creative diversity of the field, Digital_Humanities is a vision statement for the future, an invitation to engage, and a critical tool for understanding the shape of new scholarship."

HyperCities : thick mapping in the digital humanities by Todd Samuel Presner( Book )

10 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Not a book about maps in the literal sense, HyperCities describes thick mapping: the humanist project of participating and listening that transforms mapping into an ethical undertaking. Ultimately, the digital humanities do not consist merely of computer-based methods for analyzing information. They are a means of integrating scholarship with the world of lived experience, making sense of the past in the layered spaces of the present for the sake of the open future."--Pub. desc
Muscular Judaism : the Jewish body and the politics of regeneration by Todd Samuel Presner( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this interdisciplinary history of the Jewish body, Presner probes the complex cultural and intellectual origins of the "muscle Jew." He argues that the Jewish body was radically reconfigured at the end of the nineteenth and early part of the twentieth century in light of modern European discourses of regeneration. Traversing sports history, medical literature, popular culture, aesthetics, gender studies, colonialism, and military history, Presner weaves together the story of the regeneration of the Jewish body." "Richly illustrated with rare archival material, Muscular Judaism will appeal to scholars and students of Jewish Studies as well as anyone interested in modern European history, gender studies, and histories of the body."--Jacket
Urban humanities : new practices for reimagining the city by Dana Cuff( )

9 editions published in 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Original, action-oriented humanist practices for interpreting and intervening in the city: a new methodology at the intersection of the humanities, design, and urban studies.0Urban humanities is an emerging field at the intersection of the humanities, urban planning, and design. It offers a new approach not only for understanding cities in a global context but for intervening in them, interpreting their histories, engaging with them in the present, and speculating about their futures. This book introduces both the theory and practice of urban humanities, tracing the evolution of the concept, presenting methods and practices with a wide range of research applications, describing changes in teaching and curricula, and offering case studies of urban humanities practices in the field.0Urban humanities views the city through a lens of spatial justice, and its inquiries are centered on the microsettings of everyday life. The book's case studies report on real-world projects in mega-cities in the Pacific Rim-Tokyo, Shanghai, Mexico City, and Los Angeles-with several projects described in detail, including playful spaces for children in car-oriented Mexico City, a commons in a Tokyo neighborhood, and a rolling story-telling box to promote "literary justice" in Los Angeles
Digital humanities pedagogy : practices, principles and politics by Burgaud des Marets( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essays in this collection offer a timely intervention in digital humanities scholarship, bringing together established and emerging scholars from a variety of humanities disciplines across the world. The first section offers views on the practical realities of teaching digital humanities at undergraduate and graduate levels, presenting case studies and snapshots of the authors' experiences alongside models for future courses and reflections on pedagogical successes and failures. The next section proposes strategies for teaching foundational digital humanities methods across a variety of scholarly disciplines, and the book concludes with wider debates about the place of digital humanities in the academy, from the field's cultural assumptions and social obligations to its political visions."--Back cover
The aesthetics of regeneration : the Zionist invention of the muscle Jew and the visual culture of the fin-de-siècle by Todd Samuel Presner( )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation is a study of the visual culture and aesthetic discourses of Zionism between 1890 and 1918. By focusing on Max Nordau's fraught invention of the "muscle Jew" and his paradoxical aesthetics of regeneration, I show how Zionism made use of the domain of the visual for re-imagining both the individual Jewish body and the body politic through various modes of representation and cultural dissemination. At the same time, I show how Zionist body culture emerged in collaboration with other dubious and contradictory discourses including decadence, eugenics, nationalism, and colonialism. Not only does the muscle Jew have to be seen as a figure for overcoming prevalent anti-Semitic stereotypes of the weak, degenerate Jew, but it also has to be evaluated as the product of this confluence of discourses and its attendant politics of regeneration

Digital Humanities Pedagogy : Practices, Principles and Politics by Olin Bjork( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Academic institutions are starting to recognize the growing public interest in digital humanities research, and there is an increasing demand from students for formal training in its methods. Despite the pressure on practitioners to develop innovative courses, scholarship in this area has tended to focus on research methods, theories and results rather than critical pedagogy and the actual practice of teaching. The essays in this collection offer a timely intervention in digital humanities scholarship, bringing together established and emerging scholars from a variety of humanities disciplines across the world. The first section offers views on the practical realities of teaching digital humanities at undergraduate and graduate levels, presenting case studies and snapshots of the authors' experiences alongside models for future courses and reflections on pedagogical successes and failures. The next section proposes strategies for teaching foundational digital humanities methods across a variety of scholarly disciplines, and the book concludes with wider debates about the place of digital humanities in the academy, from the field's cultural assumptions and social obligations to its political visions. Digital Humanities pedagogy broadens the ways in which both scholars and practitioners can think about this emerging discipline, ensuring its ongoing development, vitality and long-term sustainability

Digital humanities and digital media : conversations on politics, culture, aesthetics and literacy by Roberto Simanowski( )

1 edition published in 2016 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

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
