Abstract

Digital Samaritans explores rhetorical delivery and cultural sovereignty in the digital humanities. The exigence for the book is rooted in a practical digital humanities project based on the digitization of manuscripts in diaspora for the Samaritan community, the smallest religious/ethnic group of 770 Samaritans split between Mount Gerizim in the Palestinian Authority and in Holon, Israel. Based on interviews with members of the Samaritan community and archival research, Digital Samaritans explores what some Samaritans want from their diaspora of manuscripts, and how their rhetorical goals and objectives relate to the contemporary existential and rhetorical situation of the Samaritans as a living, breathing people.How does the circulation of Samaritan manuscripts, especially in digital environments, relate to their rhetorical circumstances and future goals and objectives to communicate their unique cultural history and religious identity to their neighbors and the world? Digital Samaritans takes up these questions and more as it presents a case for collaboration and engaged scholarship situated at the intersection of rhetorical studies and the digital humanities.

Abstract

Today, digitization projects in the Humanities require the implementation of larger, supraregional solutions. The contributions in this volume were presented at the conference of the Hamburg State Archives and the Center for the Humanities in the Digital World at the University of Hamburg on April 10 and 11, 2006. They make an interdisciplinary contribution to the required standardisation of corresponding services which can only facilitate the urgently needed exchange of information and make it possible to share structured data.

Abstract

Much of world's documentary heritage rests in vulnerable, little-known and often inaccessible archives. Many of these archives preserve information that may cast new light on historical phenomena and lead to their reinterpretation. But such rich collections are often at risk of being lost before the history they capture is recorded. This volume celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Endangered Archives Programme at the British Library, established to document and publish online formerly inaccessible and neglected archives from across the globe. From Dust to Digital showcases the historical significance of the collections identified, catalogued and digitised through the Programme, bringing together articles on 19 of the 244 projects supported since its inception. These contributions demonstrate the range of materials documented - including rock inscriptions, manuscripts, archival records, newspapers, photographs and sound archives - and the wide geographical scope of the Programme. Many of the documents are published here for the first time, illustrating the potential these collections have to further our understanding of history.

Abstract

Die vollständige Digitalisierung von Produkten und Prozesse stellt die Medienbranche zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts vor große und zum Teil noch unbewältigte Herausforderungen. Insbesondere bei Inhalte-Intermediären wie Fernsehsendern, Verlagen und Online-Aggregatoren führt dies zu wesentlichen Veränderungen. Deren Analyse war das Ziel des interdisziplinären Forschungsprojektes intermedia an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. intermedia wurde vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung im Rahmen des Schwerpunktprogramms Internetökonomie gefördert. In zehn Teilprojekten wurden Ubiquität und Personalisierung, Interaktvität sowie Konvergenz und andere technische Entwicklungen aus Sicht von Betriebswirtschaftslehre, Informatik und Kommunikations-wissenschaft untersucht. Das vorliegende Buch präsentiert ausgewählte Ergebnisse von intermedia speziell für die Praxis. Entscheider erhalten so einen kompakten Einblick in aktuelle Forschungsbemühungen. Träger von intermedia ist das Zentrum für Internetforschung und Medienintegration der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, das die Wirkungen neuer Technologien auf Individuen, Unternehmen, Branchen und die Gesellschaft mit einer Vielzahl von Projekten untersucht.

Abstract

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.

Abstract

In this broad-reaching, multi-disciplinary collection, leading scholars investigate how the digital medium has altered the way we read and write text. In doing so, it challenges the very notion of scholarship as it has traditionally been imagined. Incorporating scientific, socio-historical, materialist and theoretical approaches, this rich body of work explores topics ranging from how computers have affected our relationship to language, whether the book has become an obsolete object, the nature of online journalism, and the psychology of authorship. The essays offer a significant contribution to the growing debate on how digitization is shaping our collective identity, for better or worse. Text and Genre in Reconstruction will appeal to scholars in both the humanities and sciences and provides essential reading for anyone interested in the changing relationship between reader and text in the digital age.

Abstract

Orphan works can prevent the culturally desirable use of pre-existing content. This work treats the problem in a fundamental way. It describes the international developments and different approaches to solving the problem. Specifically, it discusses, how the German regulation (§§ 61 ff. UrhG) not only allows the better use of pre-existing content, but also how it makes it possible to influence copyright practice.

Abstract

Archives have become a nexus in the wake of the digital turn. This book sets out to show how expanded archival practices can challenge contemporary conceptions and inform the redistribution of power and resources. Calling for the necessity to reimagine the potentials of archives in practice, the three contributions ask: Can archives fulfill their paradoxical potential as utopian sites in which the analog and the digital, the past and future, and remembrance and forgetting commingle?

Abstract

Digital technology has made culture more accessible than ever before. Texts, audio, pictures and video can easily be produced, disseminated, used and remixed using devices that are increasingly user-friendly and affordable. However, along with this technological democratization comes a paradoxical flipside: the norms regulating culture's use —copyright and related rights —have become increasingly restrictive. This book brings together essays by academics, librarians, entrepreneurs, activists and policy makers, who were all part of the EU-funded Communia project. Together the authors argue that the Public Domain —that is, the informational works owned by all of us, be that literature, music, the output of scientific research, educational material or public sector information —is fundamental to a healthy society. The essays range from more theoretical papers on the history of copyright and the Public Domain, to practical examples and case studies of recent projects that have engaged with the principles of Open Access and Creative Commons licensing. The book is essential reading for anyone interested in the current debate about copyright and the Internet. It opens up discussion and offers practical solutions to the difficult question of the regulation of culture at the digital age. The free PDF edition of this title was made possible by generous funding received from the European Union (eContentplus framework project ECP-2006-PSI-610001).
