In the context of critical museology, museums are questioning their social role, defining the museum as a site for knowledge exchange and participation in creating links between past and present. Museum education has evolved as a practice in its own right, questioning, expanding and transforming exhibitions and institutions. How does museum work change if we conceive of curating and education as an integrated practice? This question is addressed by international contributors from different types of museums. For anyone interested in the future of museums, it offers insights into the diversity of positions and experiences of translating the "grand designs" of museology into practice.

Questions about the cultural exchange of both knowledge and material goods are just as topical today as in years gone by. These questions have gained increasing attention from scholars since the 1980s when the term 'transfers cultures' by historians arose. However, this book provides a completely new approach in this context by interdisciplinary investigation of cultural exchanges based on chosen objects from shipwrecks and land, significant written documents and verifiable transfer of knowledge.The publication combines studies from humanities and natural sciences. Thus, historians, archaeologists, and pharmacists have investigated the way of transfer by means of material and immaterial goods, such as ship lists, medicine, metal ware, exotic animals and Asian objects as well as ship constructions. They set out, the continuity and discontinuity of cultural exchange based on moving objects depending on different conditions such as region, time, demand and availability.The innovative contributions of the publication aim to improve the understanding of cultural exchange by sea, as well as its reflection on land in the Early Modern Time and are the results of a workshop, which took place in the German Maritime Museum Bremerhaven, a Research Institute of the Leibniz Association, in 2015. The results show good promise for forthcoming investigations at the interface between History and Maritime Archaeology.The book targets graduate and post-graduate interdisciplinary researchers of archaeological, human, and natural sciences as well as everybody interested in both post-medieval and maritime history.ContentsList of Figures, Sources and PermissionNotes on ContributorsForeword by the State Archaeologist of Bremen Uta HalleIntroduction: Maritime vessels and their Significance for Early Modern Cultural ExchangeSimone KahlowAsian Objects in Europe - Ways of Transcontinental Intertwining in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern PeriodGerson H.

Transfer of knowledge and exchange of ideas are current questions of research. In spite of this general interest in cross-cultural scientific relations, Europe’s contacts to Russia have been only superficially studied so far. Besides the language problem, the prevalent misestimation of Russia’s role as a mere recipient seems to pose a major obstacle. Clearing this barrier is a main concern of the long-term project Scientific Relations Between Germany and Russia in the Fields of Chemistry, Pharmacy and Medicine in the 19 th Century at the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities. This project, which started in May 2007 und is scheduled to run until 2018, continues the great biobibliographical tradition of the Saxon Academy as well as profound studies performed at the Karl Sudhoff Institute for the History of Medicine and Science (Leipzig University, Medical Faculty) that have been financially supported by the German Research Foundation from 1999 to 2006.The academy project and the Karl Sudhoff Institute cooperated in organizing the international conference Science as a Medium of Communication between Germany and Russia in the 19 th Century which took place from September 29 to October 1, 2010 in Leipzig. The conference aimed at bringing together scholars with specialized knowledge of this field and provided a platform for exchanging experience in methods and issues of transnational science studies. A fundamental target was the documentation of major figures and the description of their institutional settings. Since the project is dedicated to history and philosophy of science in general, contributions on changes of scientific paradigms and on the history of concepts and ideas were also encouraged.The convention gathered about 30 scholars from all over the world as well as some 20 local specialists to discuss various historical aspects of the bilateral scientific relations between the German speaking countries and the Russian Czardom. Thus, the interdisciplinary program covered numerous facets of history of science – social, cultural, educational, institutional and intellectual history and history of medicine, biology, chemistry, pharmacy, psychology and geography.This volume presents the conference papers arranged according to subjects. The first section, which precedes the special essays, contains preliminary remarks and an introductory speech: Heiner KADEN, vice-president of the Saxon Academy of Sciences and Humanities, discusses the long research tradition in the history of science at Leipzig and the roots of the project on German-Russian scientific relations in the 19 th century. During the conference two keynote speakers outlined the main features of scientific encounters and provided a European contextualisation: Dietrich VON ENGELHARDT (Luebeck) described the international exchange of ideas at the beginning of the 19 th century with special reference to Italy, while Matthias MIDDELL (Leipzig) gave an inspiring analysis of the discontinuities in the French-Russian scientific, cultural and economic relations.The second part is dedicated to chemistry and pharmacy. Selected protagonists of scientific transfer are Friedrich Konrad BEILSTEIN (Elena ROUSSANOVA, Hamburg), Gustav VON BUNGE (Regine and Gerd PFREPPER, Leipzig), Ivan S. PLOTNIKOV (Elena A. ZAITSEVA, Moscow) and Vladimir I. VERNADSKY (Marina Ju. SOROKINA, Moscow). This is complemented by Gisela BOECK’s (Rostock) observations concerning the use of the periodic table in school instruction and Christoph FRIEDRICH’s (Marburg) general overview of German apothecaries in Russia in the 19 th century.The third section covers medicine and psychology: Galina KICHIGINA (Toronto) highlights the importance of Karl Johann VON SEIDLITZ regarding the implementation of physical examination in clinical practice, Vladimir A. ABASHNIK (Kharkov) reveales the connections between Emil Heinrich DU BOIS-REYMOND and the Kharkov medical faculty, and Florian MILDENBERGER (Frankfurt/Oder) describes the obstacles Emil KRAEPELIN has encountered during his years at Dorpat. Saulo DE FREITAS ARAUJO (Brazil) discusses Wilhelm WUNDT’s influence on Vladimir M. BECHTEREV’s concept of scientific psychology, Natal’ja Ju. MASOLIKOVA (Moscow) addresses the personal relations between members of the Russian psychological society and Leipzig University, and Susanne GUSKI- LEINWAND (Heidelberg) delineates Aleksander NECHAYEV’s experimental psychology.The fourth chapter deals with hygiene as a new leading science in the 19 th century, a topic which proved to be one of the central points of interest during the conference: Vladimir S. SOBOLEV (St. Petersburg) describes the fight of the Russian naval forces against infectious diseases, while Florian STEGER, Nadine MEYER and Wolfgang LOCHER (Munich) evaluate Max von PETTENKOFER’s impact on the development of Public Health in Russia. Lutz HAEFNER (Goettingen) illustrates the transfer of hygienic knowledge using the example of the Saratov medical society, Konstantin K. VASYLYEV (Sumy) deals with the role of German physicians in the development of the Odessa health resort, and Bjoern FELDER (Goettingen) traces Evgenii SHEPILEVSKY’s role in the Russian eugenics movement.The fifth group of presentations pursues conceptional changes in biology: The zoological section includes Sergei I. FOKIN’s (St. Petersburg) description of Otto BUETSCHLI’s key role in the development of Russian zoology, but the general focus is on evolution: Thomas SCHMUCK (Berlin) analyses Christian Heinrich PANDER’s reflections on metamorphosis, while Eduard I. KOLCHINSKY (St. Petersburg) traces the German influence on Russian evolutionism, and Erki TAMMIKSAAR (Tartu) gives an introduction to Karl Ernst VON BAER’s ecological and evolutionary thinking. Nadezhda V. SLEPKOVA (St. Petersburg) addresses the conflicts between the “Russian” and the “German” parties at the Imperial Academy of Science in St. Petersburg using the example of the zoological museum, and last but not least Anastasia A. FEDOTOVA (St. Petersburg) depicts the rise of plant geography in Russia.The last section collects biographical approaches: The professionalisation of veterinary medicine is reflected in the St. Petersburg society of veterinarians (Natalia E. BEREGOY, St. Petersburg), and Anna ANANIEVA describes the close relations between VON BAER and the Leipzig publisher Leopold VOSS. A panel on prosopography concluded the conference, presenting work in progress for discussion: Daniela ANGETTER (Vienna) discusses a research project on the history of medicine and pharmacy at Lviv University, Vladimir A. VOLKOV and Marina V. KULIKOVA (Moscow) present their biographical encyclopedia of the professors in the Russian Czardom, and Marta FISCHER (Leipzig) specifies the conception of a biobibliographical encyclopedia of the German-Russian scientific relations.Without a doubt, the conference opened chances for international cooperation and provided opportunities for interdisciplinary communication. As reflected in the extensive index of persons, an admirably huge amount of facts is compiled. Yet, in light of the richness of detail, analyses and interpretations are underrepresented, discussions and personal talks showed that yet time is not ripe for general conclusions. It will be up to the project’s research program to work out a general guideline, to consider the results and to comment on the implications.

Human Computer Systems Interaction. Pt.1
246,09 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The main contemporary human-system interaction (H-SI) problems consist in design and/or improvement of the tools for effective exchange of information between individual humans or human groups and technical systems created for humans aiding in reaching their vital goals. This book is a second issue in a series devoted to the novel in H-SI results and contributions reached for the last years by many research groups in European and extra-European countries. The preliminary (usually shortened) versions of the chapters were presented as conference papers at the 3rd International Conference on H-SI held in Rzeszow, Poland, in 2010. A large number of valuable papers selected for publication caused a necessity to publish the book in two volumes. The given, 1st Volume consists of sections devoted to: I. Decision Supporting Systems, II. Distributed Knowledge Bases and WEB Systems and III. Impaired Persons Aiding Systems. The decision supporting systems concern various application areas, like enterprises management, healthcare, agricultural products storage, visual design, planning of sport trainings, etc. Other papers in this area are devoted to general decision supporting methods and tools. In the group of papers concerning knowledge bases and WEB-based systems are some focused on new computer networks technologies, models of malicious network traffic and selected problems of distributed networks resources organization and tagging. The concepts of a distributed virtual museum and of managing the process of intellectual capital creation in this part of the book are also presented. The last part of this volume contains a dozen of papers concerning various concepts and realizations of disabled persons aiding systems. Among them, the systems aimed at aiding visual or motion disability affected persons can be mentioned. The problems of residential infrastructure for ubiquitous health supervision and graphics- and gesture-based interactive children therapy supporting systems design in this volume are also presented.

Globally, raw materials play a central role and are a key factor in determining the economic power and growth of modern states, confederations and coalitions. The extraction and supply of raw materials is a main driving force in global trade today, but has also profoundly influenced human economic and cultural history. In order to elucidate the importance of mineral ores in pre-modern societies, PhD students and staff at the Leibniz graduate school “Raw Materials, Innovation and Technology of Ancient Cultures” [RITaK] – a co-operation between the German Mining Museum [Deutsches Bergbau-Museum, DBM] and the Ruhr-University Bochum [RUB] – were involved in interdisciplinary research. This publication contains the results of the international RITaK end-of-project conference, held from the 27th-29th of September, as well as contributions to the RITaK workshop “Perspectives for an Economic Archaeology”, held on the 22nd and 23rd of November 2013. At a theoretical and model-building level, the first seven articles provide archaeological, sociological and economic perspectives on the diverse economic, cognitive, cultural and social feedback processes set in motion by the appropriation and use of raw materials. The following contributions focus on different archaeological and historical cultures in Europe, Central Asia and the Mediterranean area from the Neolithic to the Middle Ages. Raw material processing and preparation, metal recycling, prehistoric and historic mining, the exchange mechanisms involving raw materials and their products, as well as technology and knowledge transfer, are all covered. Together, the 23 contributions to this volume offer the possibility for intensive engagement with the theme of resources and their influence on and entanglement with human behaviour, mentalities, knowledge acquisition, technological and social developments and even the relationship between people and their environments and the human appropriation of space.

Knowledge Mobilization and Educational Research
223,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

How can educational research have more impact? What processes of knowledge exchange are most effective for increasing the uses of research results? How can research-produced knowledge be better 'mobilized' among users such as practicing educators, policy makers, and the public communities? These sorts of questions are commanding urgent attention in educational discourses and research policies now circulating around the world. This attention has been translated into powerful material exercises that shape what is considered to be worthwhile research and how research is funded, recognized, and assessed. Yet precisely what activities constitute effective knowledge mobilization, or even what is meant by 'moving knowledge', remains unclear. What politics are at play in determining knowledge 'impact' across radically different contexts? Who determines what counts as impact, and for what purposes? How are 'results' of educational research separated from its participants and processes? In addition knowledge mobilization also invokes debates about the languages through which knowledge is constructed, policy processes are enacted, and research unfolds. This volume is unique in bringing together these wide-ranging issues of knowledge mobilization in education. The volume editors critically analyse these complex issues and also describe various efforts of knowledge mobilization and their effects. While the contributors themselves speak from diverse material, occupational and theoretical locations. Leading scholars in Canada, the US, the UK, and Australia bring disciplinary perspectives from law, digital media studies, museum studies, journalism and policy-making as well as fields of education. Some speak from Anglo-'Western' perspectives but others such as Phan Le Ha (Vietnamese), Rui Yang (Chinese) and Dolores van der Wey (Haida/West Coat Salish First Nations) speak from Asian, Indigenous and diasporic locations.
