In einer urbanisierten, modernen Gesellschaft erfordert sie immer neue Antworten. Der 36. Kongress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Soziologie (DGS) bot Raum für lebhafte Debatten über die wachsende Vielfalt von Orientierungsangeboten, Selbstund Fremdzuschreibungen, soziale Lagen, Arbeitsweisen und Lebensstilen sowie über Bedingungen und Formen des Zusammenhalts. Die Bände dokumentieren die Kongressbeiträge und bieten damit einen umfassenden Überblick über die Aspekte des Themas sowie den gegenwärtigen wissenschaftlichen Kenntnisstand.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: „Kulturelle Kohärenz“ und „Prestige“ – diese scheinbar gegensätzlichen Begriffe stehen in Wirklichkeit in enger Beziehung zueinander. Ohne gemeinsame gesellschaftliche Werte gäbe es keine Zuschreibung von Prestige, durch die sich Individuen von ihrer Mitwelt abheben könnten. Fundiert und anschaulich werfen die Beiträge dieses dritten Sammelbands des Münchner Graduiertenkollegs „Formen von Prestige in Kulturen des Altertums“ Schlaglichter auf die mannigfaltigen Aspekte des Begriffspaars. Neben den unterschiedliche Kulturen und Zeiträumen – von der europäischen Urgeschichte über den Alten Orient und die Klassische Antike bis ins Alte China – ist auch die Spannbreite der herangezogenen Quellen und Methoden beträchtlich. Im Fokus stehen so unterschiedliche Aspekte wie die Verwaltung von Kultangelegenheiten, Feste, Zeugnisse zur Königsnähe oder Prestigeobjekte. Auch linguistische Befunde, Werke der bildenden Kunst sowie literarische und funeräre Texte werden für die Thematik erschlossen.

This book was released on 2021-02-04 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Diversity is both a cause for controversial discussions and an opportunity to reflect on social participation. This book offers a basic introduction to important currents in diversity research by presenting central theoretical determinants of the research perspective. An analysis of the diversity strategy and its implementation at the University of California, Berkeley serves as an empirical-practical example in this regard. In particular, this case study illustrates the intersectional research perspective and the multi-level and multi-method research design of reflexive diversity research. In the sense of reflexive constructivism, the practice of research itself is reflected using the example of the case study.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Taking recent German debates of diversity terminology as a case example for scrutinizing enactments of genealogy that assume a linear image of progressive generation, this book engages with performative effects of genealogical stories in academic texts that negotiate conceptual belonging. While supporters of the developing Diversity Studies in Germany cherish diversity’s potential for multi-category investigations, Gender and Women’s Studies critics reject the term for its neoliberal, managerial rationale, allegedly holding profit above social justice. Genealogies and Conceptual Belonging intervenes in this oppositional debate by turning one’s attention to narrations of the origins of "gender" and "diversity" that suggest their proper place in the present. Presenting a story about dis/continuous genealogies and highlighting complicated interferences between gender and diversity, Marten forges novel future connections between questions of gender, sexual difference, and diversity. This pioneering volume will be of particular interest to undergraduates, postgraduates and postdoctoral researchers interested in the fields of genealogy, Gender Studies, feminist theory, feminist science studies and critical race / diversity / intersectionality studies.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Concepts of social capital play a well-established role in a number of academic disciplines and continue to grow in popularity in the discourses of the sciences, as well as those of civil society and social practice. As an element that is fundamental and constitutive of various forms of societal coexistence and wellbeing, social capital apparently generates positive effects. However, it also contributes to inequalities and unequal distribution of power, and is, consequently, a rather controversial subject. This collection of essays represents reflections and case studies from all over the world. They step out of well-known paths of discourse and discuss the phenomenon of social capital in manifold ways and from new perspectives. In addition to rethinking social capital theoretically and methodologically, the authors focus especially on issues and challenges of its practical application. The contributions come from researchers and practitioners of different backgrounds including sciences such as sociology, philosophy, social geography, economics, health studies, history, interpersonal communication studies and cultural studies, as well as social practice in development aid. The volume will appeal to a broad audience from diverse disciplines, both academic and practical.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In what ways do local authorities respond to the increasing socio-cultural heterogeneity of urban populations? While other studies have often focused on policy declarations, the eight chapters in this book provide rich evidence on the content and implementation of local policies. Furthermore, several chapters offer theoretical insights into the factors driving or hindering policies that acknowledge socio-cultural heterogeneity and ensure more equality and inclusive public services. The general focus of the book is on cities in France and Germany, that is, two major immigration countries in Europe - countries in which local authorities have a relatively strong position within the state structure. The contributions analyze how local actors use their powers to ensure more equal public employment, adapt cultural offers and recreational facilities to the demands of a diverse population, and/or to fight discrimination. Further chapters investigate who takes part in formulating policies and seek to explain why cities take different decisions about strategies and practices. As a whole, the book contributes to the comparative study of societal diversity and local politics in France and Germany, and will be of interest to academics, researchers, and advanced students of Sociology, Public Policy, Law, and Political Science. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

In this ethnographic account, the author introduces and examines the lives of ordinary residents, neighborhoods, and mosque communities to analyze moments and spaces where Muslims and non-Muslims engage with each other and accommodate their respective needs. These accounts show that even in the face of resentment and discrimination, this pious population has indeed become an integral part of the urban community.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Since the turn of the 21st century, countless literary endeavors by 'new Germans' have entered the spotlight of academic research. Yet 'minority writing', with its distinctive renegotiation of traditional concepts of cultural identity, is far from a recent phenomenon in German literature. A hundred years previously, the intense involvement of German-Jewish intellectuals in cultural and political discourses on Jewish identity put a clear stamp on German modernism. This book is the first to unfold literary parallels between these two riveting periods in German cultural history. Drawing on the philosophical oeuvre of Jean-Luc Nancy, a comparative reading of texts by, amongst others, Beer-Hofmann, Kermani, Özdamar, Roth, Schnitzler, and Zaimoglu examines a variety of literary approaches to the thorny issue of cultural identity, while developing an overarching perspective on the ‘politics of literature’.

Download Urban Commons PDF Format Full Free by Christian Borch and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2015-04-10 with total page 176 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book rethinks the city by examining its various forms of collectivity – their atmospheres, modes of exclusion and self-organization, as well as how they are governed – on the basis of a critical discussion of the notion of urban commons. The idea of the commons has received surprisingly little attention in urban theory, although the city may well be conceived as a shared resource. Urban Commons: Rethinking the City offers an attempt to reconsider what a city might be by studying how the notion of the commons opens up new understandings of urban collectivities, addressing a range of questions about urban diversity, urban governance, urban belonging, urban sexuality, urban subcultures, and urban poverty; but also by discussing in more methodological terms how one might study the urban commons. In these respects, the rethinking of the city undertaken in this book has a critical dimension, as the notion of the commons delivers new insights about how collective urban life is formed and governed.

Book excerpt: Ethnische und religiöse Vielfalt ist in Deutschland inzwischen Realität - ist sie aber auch gelebte und anerkannte Normalität? Menschen mit Migrationshintergrund, Bindestrichdeutsche, Neudeutsche - es gibt viele Bezeichnungen für Menschen, die sowohl deutsch als auch türkisch, vietnamesisch oder italienisch fühlen, leben und so geprägt sind. Kurzum: Sie haben mehrere nationale und kulturelle Wurzeln, verorten sich in diesen vielfältigen Zusammenhängen. Die Begriffe offenbaren aber jeweils eine emotionale Kluft, die es schwer macht, als das verstanden zu werden, was letztlich alle sind: Bürgerinnen und Bürger Deutschlands, die eine moderne deutsche Einwanderungsgesellschaft repräsentieren. Die Autorinnen und Autoren dieses Buches sind im "Forum der Brückenbauer" aktiv, einem Netzwerk, das aus einem Leadership-Programm der Bertelsmann Stiftung für gesellschaftspolitisch engagierte Nachwuchsführungskräfte hervorgegangen ist. Sie alle verkörpern gelebte Vielfalt in der deutschen Gesellschaft - die weder uniform noch homogen ist. Sie sind das lebendige Beispiel für ein neues Sowohl-als-auch. In ihren Artikeln machen sie deutlich, dass die gesellschaftliche Veränderung in Deutschland keine Anti-These zum bisherigen darstellt, sondern eine Synthese von deutsch und zugleich vielfältig ist. Dieser Band beleuchtet die verschiedenen Lebensrealitäten in Deutschland und einiger seiner Protagonisten. Er zeigt, dass es mittlerweile eine "neue" Normalität gibt, die auch als solche verstanden werden sollte. Das Buch ist eine Einladung an alle, sich auf die Spurensuche nach den Brückenbauern von heute und morgen zu begeben.
