Social concertation in times of austerity : European integration and the politics of labour market reforms in Austria and Switzerland by Alexandre Afonso( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A term specifically found in European politics, social concertation refers to cooperation between trade unions, governments and employers in public policy-making. Social Concertation in Times of Austerity investigates the political underpinnings of social concertation in the context of European integration. Alexandre Afonso focuses on the regulation of labor mobility and unemployment protection in Austria and Switzerland, two of Europe's most prosperous countries, and he looks at nonpartisan policymaking as a strategy for compromise. With this smart, new study, Afonso powerfully enters the debate on the need for a shared social agenda in post-crisis Western Europe
Installation art and the museum : presentation and conservation of changing artworks by Vivian Van Saaze( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Installation art has become mainstream in artistic practices. However, acquiring and displaying such artworks implies that curators and conservators are challenged to deal with obsolete technologies, ephemeral materials and other issues concerning care and management of these artworks. By analysing three in-depth case studies, the author sheds new light on the key concepts of traditional conservation (authenticity, artist's intention, and the notion of ownership) while exploring how these concepts apply in contemporary art conservation. Based on original empirical research and cross-case analysis, this ground-breaking study offers a re-examination of traditional conservation values and ethics, and argues for a reassessment of the role of the conservator of contemporary art

Watch and learn : rhetorical devices in classroom teaching films after 1940 by Eef Masson( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 443 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sinds de late jaren negentig is er een toenemende academische belangstelling voor zogenoemde 'gebruiksfilms': films die bedoeld zijn om te informeren, te trainen of onderwijzen, of te overtuigen van het nut van een service of product. Onderzoek richtte zich tot nu toe vooral op de productie- of distributiegeschiedenis van dergelijke films, of hun pedagogische effectiviteit. Minder aandacht is er voor hun tekstuele dimensie: de middelen die ze inzetten ter onderbouwing van hun informatieve, educatieve of commerciële argument. Intussen hebben gebruiksfilms echter nog steeds het imago van erg 'formulaire' genres. Eef Masson nuanceert dit beeld in haar boek, en stelt een methodologie voor die de aandacht vestigt op de retorische diversiteit van deze films
Battlefields of negotiation : control, agency, and ownership in World of Warcraft by René Glas( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World of Warcraft is één van de meest populaire computergames van het afgelopen decennium. Het spel liet miljoenen spelers kennismaken met het gemeenschappelijk online spelen van computerspellen. Het spel is zo ontworpen dat het, binnen zekere grenzen, spelers uitnodigt en uitdaagt zich de virtuele wereld toe te eigenen. Het resultaat is dat spelers zeer divers spelgedrag vertonen en op heel verschillende manieren deelnemen. Deze studie naar World of Warcraft benadert het spel als een complex socio-cultureel fenomeen, dat wordt gedefinieerd door en zich evolueert als gevolg van onderhandelingen tussen spelersgroepen en makers. Het laat de complexe consument-producentrelatie zien bij dit type online games, die in toenemende mate participatie van de spelers toestaan, maar waarin de spelers tegelijkertijd sterk beteugeld worden

Rechtliche Probleme der elektronischen Langzeitarchivierung wissenschaftlicher Primärdaten by Tobias Hillegeist( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Zeitalter der immer weiter fortschreitenden Digitalisierung und die stetige Verbesserung der technischen Rahmenbedingungen bieten Forschungseinrichtung neue Mittel und Wege, ihre gewonnenen Daten zu archivieren und öffentlich zugänglich zu machen. Nicht selten gehen damit rechtliche Problematiken einher. Angefangen bei der Frage, wem denn diese Daten?gehören? bis hin zu der Problematik, ob bestimmte Daten überhaupt archiviert werden dürfen und wer für einen eventuellen Datenverlust haften muss. Das vorliegende Werk legt dabei besonderes Augenmerk auf die urheberrechtlichen, datenschutzrechtlichen sowie haftungsrechtlichen Problematiken, welche eine digitale Archivierung mit sich bringen kann. Des Weiteren wird beleuchtet, welche Überlegungen im Vorfeld einer Archivierung angestellt werden müssen und welche Maßnahmen getroffen werden sollten, um rechtlichen Schwierigkeiten vorzubeugen. Die Arbeit soll daher auch als rechtlicher Leitfaden für Archivierungsprojekte dienen, weshalb unter anderem auch Vorschläge für die Formulierung entsprechender Vertragsklauseln enthalten sind. Aus diesem Grund wird außerdem ausführlich auf die rechtlichen Konsequenzen von Verstößen gegen urheber- und datenschutzrechtliche Vorschriften eingegangen

Verfassungsrechtliche Anforderungen an Sperrmaßnahmen von kinderpornographischen Inhalten im Internet by Alexandra Heliosch( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Art und Weise wie dem Missbrauch des Internets als Verbreitungsmedium für Kinderpornographie Einhalt geboten werden kann, wird auf nationaler wie auch europäischer Ebene stark diskutiert. Im Mittelpunkt steht die Frage, ob auch unmittelbare Eingriffe in die Internetstruktur zwecks Unterbindung des Zugriffs auf kinderpornographische Webinhalte gerechtfertigt sind. Damit sind in erster Linie die Internetsperren von Access-Providern angesprochen und die Problematik, ob diese tatsächlich eine effektive Maßnahme in der Bekämpfung von Kinderpornographie verheißen. Die Autorin untersucht dieses Thema primär anhand einer verfassungsrechtlichen Würdigung eines legislatorischen Sperransatzes zur Verhinderung des Zugriffs auf diese kinderpornographischen Webinhalte, bezieht aber auch die europäische Entwicklung mit ein. Neben der Herleitung allgemeiner verfassungsrechtlicher Anforderungen wird auch ein Überblick über das Zugangserschwerungsgesetz gegeben, das in den Jahren 2009/2010 als erster ernstzunehmender gesetzlicher Ansatz zur Inhaltsregulierung galt, letztlich jedoch praktisch nicht angewandt wurde

Youth at the Crossroads. Discourses on Socio-Cultural Change in Post-War Northern Uganda by Julia Vorhölter( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on eleven months of field work (2009-2011), this book analyzes the situation of youth in urban Gulu, Northern Uganda, in the aftermath of the war between the Lord's Resistance Army and the Ugandan Government (1986-2006). Specifically, it focuses on the generation that was born and grew up during the 20-year war: How do members of this generation perceive and evaluate socio-cultural changes which occurred in Acholi society throughout the war years? How do they imagine their future society? And how do they react to the expectations directed at them by their elders? In order to answer these questions, the book draws on rich ethnographic material. It provides an in-depth analysis of how imaginations of the post-war society are contested and negotiated between different groups of social actors "youth and elders, men and women as well as local, national and international actors. While some try to re-establish former cultural practices and conventions and call for a 'retraditionalization' of Acholi society, others lobby for 'modernization' and attempt to establish 'new' social structures, values and norms which are strongly influenced by local understandings of 'the Western culture'. The book presents numerous examples of the multiple and complex ways young people strategically position themselves in these debates and make use of the various discourses on culture, tradition and modernity in their negotiations of generational, gender, family, and peer-to-peer relations
Alpenverein : die Städter entdecken die Alpen by Anneliese Gidl( )

1 edition published in 2007 in Undetermined and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Deutsche und Österreichische Alpenverein resulted from a merger of the Österreichischer Alpenverein founded in 1862 with the Deutsche Alpenverein in 1873. Both clubs had been initiated by urban circles in Vienna, Munich and other major cities in Germany and Austria. The Alpenverei soon became very popular and on the eve of World War I had more than 100.000 members. In the beginning, the Alpenverein concentrated its activities on the scientific exploration of the Alps, which was regularly reported upon in its periodicals. Subsequently, the Alpenverein established a regular service of well educated mountain guides as well as a net of thousands of kilometres of mountain routes and mountain huts to serve the needs of the growing number of Alpine tourists. Routes and huts were established by the numerous sections founded over the decades between the North Sea in the north and the Adriatic Sea in the south, between Strassbourg in the west and Königsberg in the east. Besides such practical goals, the Alpenverein also cherished ideal motives such as the intention of providing city dwellers by way of compensation with the chance of enjoying nature and finding physical recreation, which at the same were to foster qualities of character such as determination, daring and presence of mind. The sections - besides giving information on the Alps - also cherished the social life among their members, especially during the annual general meetings, which were organized alternately by various sections and which were to rank among the highlights of urban social life. The exploration and visits of the Alps were often related with a kind of colonial though well intended attempts to influence the alpine population, since the Alpenverein also considered itself a "provider of culture". The alpine population, however, had - at least in the beginning and with but few exceptions - only little understanding for the activities of the alpine tourists, although in the end and as a consequence of the emerging alpine tourism, which was strongly promoted by the Alpenverein, the benefits prevailed. After many years of peaceful development characterized by cooperation not only between the German and the Austrian sections of the club, but also between the Alpenverein and similar clubs in the neighbouring alpine countries, the political conflicts before and during World War I resulted in more radical attitudes within the Alpenverein, especially vis-a-vis the Italian side. Thanks to its knowledge and infrastructure in the Alps, the Alpenverein was able to support the Austrian army in its war in the mountains. All in all, however, it may be said without exaggeration that the Deutsche und Österreichische Alpenverein contributed a great deal and substantially to the exploration, the knowledge and - by making them more easily accessible - the popularity of the Alps, to the expansion of the members horizons and perceptions as well as, finally, to the material and in many cases spiritual improvement of the alpine regions themselves
Villenarchitektur am Semmering by Günther Buchinger( )

1 edition published in 2006 in Undetermined and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present manuscript is intended to be part II of a publication in two volumes, but at the same time it can be seen as an independent, complete study. It deals with the different aspects of the historic architecture in the region of "Semmering" in southern Lower Austria. The book is the result of the FWF-project P 13959, in which one year of research under scientifically direction and supervision of the applicant (Prof. Dr. Mario Schwarz) was dedicated to intensive studies in art history, cultural history and history of architecture of this region. The author Dr. Guenther Buchinger - responsible collaborator of the project - attempted a large-scale research of the historical villas and county-houses at Semmering. The study contains a full, detailed documentation of the history and construction of the buildings and much information about the employers and the building contractors and architects as well. Consequently the author elaborated a comprehensive stylistic analyse. By the way of elucidating the circumstances of the construction of the buildings, it was possible to reconsider the background of the creating of this artificial settlement at Semmering. A certain social group of great influence among the Viennese bourgeoisie appears in this study, which created this recreation resort as a "vacation-paradise", at that time a complete new, futuristic project, motivated by personal and commercial interests likewise. The result, a colony of villas, was used not only for private purpose, but at the same time for tourism, partially in connection with the hotel buildings. In his stylistic analyse Guenther Buchinger gives a convincing proof that the phenomenon, which in general is subsumed as "homeland-style", "vernacular architecture" or "Swiss-cottage-style", in fact is a particular form of historicism between "severe historicism" and "late historicism". In the sense of "severe historicism" patterns of genuine architecture - by preference from publications on historical Swiss architecture - were used and extensively quoted. Consequently the forms and details developed in the style of "late historicism" in free evolution and eventually took into the formal repertory also elements of "Jugendstil". The scientific results of this study are important especially concerning the architects Franz von Neumann and Josef Buendsdorf, whose work has not yet been object of detailed research, but likewise for the general oeuvre of the prominent contractor's bureau Fellner & Helmer, whose theatre-architecture is already well documented in art history, but whose country houses and hotel-buildings are largely unknown. The study partially is designed as a catalogue, which presents each object in detail, and a comprehensive report of the scientific results in a distinct summary and contains numerous photos, plans and comparative illustrations
Metamorphosen in inneren Räumen : Video- und Performancearbeiten der Künstlerin Ulrike Rosenbach by Meike Rotermund( )

1 edition published in 2012 in German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Das Ouevre der international renommierten Künstlerin Ulrike Rosenbach ist facettenreich. Sie arbeitet hauptsächlich mit dem Medium Video, hat während der vergangenen vier Jahrzehnte ihres Schaffens zahlreiche Performances aufgeführt. Bereits Anfang der 1970er Jahre entwickelte sie ihre spezifische Form der Videoperformance. Auch gehören Fotografien und Zeichnungen zum weiterhin wachsenden Werkkonvolut. Die vorliegende Untersuchung zu ihrem künstlerischen Wirken fokussiert auf ikonographische Fragestellungen. Dabei werden besonders die Videound Performancearbeiten der Künstlerin in den Blick genommen, die an der Düsseldorfer Akademie studierte und bei Joseph Beuys Meisterschülerin war. Wenn Ulrike Rosenbach bisher hauptsächlich als feministische Künstlerin rezipiert wurde, so sind ihre frühen Arbeiten sicherlich durch feministische Fragestellungen und Motive bestimmt, doch verändern sich ihre Themen im Folgenden sukzessive. Zunehmend treten allgemeinmenschliche Fragestellungen in den Mittelpunkt ihres Schaffens und ihr Werk ist geprägt durch eine spezifische Bildsprache, die in eine Semantisierung der Materialien mündet. Zu dieser künstlerischen Welt bietet diese Analyse einen fundierten Zugang
--Allerlei für die Nationalbibliothek zu Ergattern : eine österreichische Institution in der NS-Zeit by Murray G Hall( )

2 editions published in 2006 in German and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When Austria was annexed by Hitler Germany in March 1938, the National Library in Vienna was not only the biggest scientific library in the country, it was now the third largest in the German Reich. Its status among and influence on the scholarly libraries in the Reich was considerably enhanced by one person during the Nazi period, namely the newly-appointed director-general Dr. Paul Heigl, a fervent National socialist, Acquisitions by the Library during the years 1938 to 1945 are a key focal point of this history, and Heigl played both an active and significant role in the process of book looting in the interest of the National Library. The Library may well have regarded itself in the inter-war years as being "apolitical"--And house historians have tended to reinforce this image - but this does not stand up to closer scrutiny even during the political period of the "Corporate State" und Dollfuss and Schuschnigg, let alone during the time of national socialist rule in Austria. The study breaks with the previos taboos and presents the essentially political role of the Library both before and after March 1938 by investigating its involvement in the crimes of the Nazi regime. But the study does not only concentrate on acquisitions made through improper means, it also attempts to capture some of the atmosphere of a major library under the NS-regime and in war-time. The examination also sees itself as a contribution to the hitherto neglected history of libraries in Austria in the Nazi period in general and of church and official libraries in particular. It might be noted that Paul Heigl was not only in charge of scholary libraries in south-eastern Europe following the German invasion of Yugoslavia in April 1941, he was also a library consultant for local Nazi officials and had considerable sway in forging library policy. Our study discusses a number of chapters in the Library ́s history during the Nazi period which have so far been absent from official histories, primarily those which implicate the Library and point to the vast and varied acquisitions. The main chapter focusses on the development and acquisitions of the Library ́s many collections from 1938 o 1945, chiefly on the basis of library records and files, and attempts to describe not only the looting, but also fate of stolen books, libraries and collections immediately after World War Two and on up to the present day. And, as the case may be, their subsequent restitution over the past few years as a consequence of the Art Restitution Law of 1998. Name and subject indices are intended to make the information in thistory more easily accessible
Mühlauer Tagebuch : 23.7.-28.8.1920 by Richard Hörmann( )

2 editions published in 2001 in German and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ferdinand Ebner is next to Ludwig Wittgenstein the most important Austrian philosopher of language in the 20th century. In his main work Das Wort und die geistigen Realitäten. Pneumatologische Fragmente Ebner produces a new form of anthropology, which is based on a dialogic orientated understanding of human beings. Beside his philosophical works Ebner wrote many letters and diaries. One of the 14 existing diaries is the so-called "Mohlauer Tagebuch" from the 23rd of July to the 28 th of August 1920, which is kept on the "Brenner Archiv" in Innsbruck together with the philosophical texts and the letters. In this diary Ebner writes about his stay in Mühlau, a village near Innsbruck, where he was a guest of Ludwig von Ficker for one month and which was the beginning of a long friendship with the publisher of the Brenner. Ficker, who had already published some articles of Ebner in the Brenner, printed the Fragmente 1921, two years after Ebner wrote them. In this way Ficker became the publisher, promoter and friend of Ebner. According to some passages of the diary, Ebner experienced in Ficker a kind of acceptance and security, which he did not know before. This feeling of well-being is also a part of the deep impressions of nature, which Ebner got on many walks through the surrounding of Innsbruck. Although he was a thinker, who always emphasized the meaning of the word, these impressions showed him the limits of language. Ebner's basic opinions are presentated very clearly in his meetings with different members of the Brenner-circle and in the confrontation with the intellectual movements of the time. An example are his talks with Paul Bargehr about Buddhism, who was newly rediscovered in Europe in those days. Ebner understood the good will of Bargehr, but he cannot accept Buddhism as a solution for the big problems of the Europeans. In spite of Ebners turn to Christianity some years before the diary also shows the difficulties in the relation between Ebner and the Catholic church. Of special interest is Ebner's meeting with the painter Erich Lechleitner. In front of Lechleitner's pictures he has doubts about his radical pessimism concerning art and culture. The text of the diary is followed by a commentary, which explains the biographical, literary, philosophical, historical, etc. connections of passages in the diary. The three essays following the commentary give an overview of Ebners biographical, philosophical and cultural background. Monika Seekircher's essay includes a short biography of Ebner and describes the most important personal relations in his life as well as his intellectual developement. Richard Hörmann tries to show the connections between the diary and the Fragmente, because many entries of the diary can only be understood on the basis of the main thoughts of the Fragmente. The topic of Walter Methlagl's essay is the local cultural context, in which the diary is embedded. Special attention is given to the intellectual movements within the Brenner-circle. The numerous photos depict persons, who are mentioned in the diary, places as they then looked and the pictures by painters named in the diary
