Abstract

Historical scholarship and the digital humanities are still struggling to come to terms with the rise of Wikipedia, which has grown prodigiously in the last decade. Because of its enormous range, Wikipedia has made a significant impact on popular historical understanding. The contributors analyze Wikipedia as an external challenge to scholarship and sound out potential opportunities for collaboration with Wikipedia in research and teaching.

Abstract

This easy-to-read book introduces the basics of solving partial differential equations by means of finite difference methods. Unlike many of the traditional academic works on the topic, this book was written for practitioners. Accordingly, it especially addresses: the construction of finite difference schemes, formulation and implementation of algorithms, verification of implementations, analyses of physical behavior as implied by the numerical solutions, and how to apply the methods and software to solve problems in the fields of physics and biology.

Abstract

Issue Mapping for an Ageing Europe is a seminal guide to mapping social and political issues with digital methods. The issue at stake concerns the imminent crisis of an ageing Europe and its impact on the contemporary welfare state. The book brings together three leading approaches to issue mapping: Bruno Latour's social cartography, Ulrich Beck's risk cartography and Jeremy Crampton's critical neo-cartography. These modes of inquiry are put into practice with digital methods for mapping the ageing agenda, including debates surrounding so-called 'old age', cultural philosophies of ageing, itinerant care workers, not to mention European anti-ageing cuisine. Issue Mapping for an Ageing Europe addresses an urgent social issue with new media research tools.

Abstract

L’archéologie est communément distinguée des autres sciences humaines, en particulier des sciences du passé, par son objet d’étude qui est, par essence, l’homme à travers les vestiges matériels, de l’objet jusqu’au site archéologique et son environnement. Mais alors que ces restes tangibles des sociétés passées sont descriptibles, caractérisables, classables dans des typologies, comment aborder et interpréter les vides et les silences documentaires qui n’ont pas laissé de traces manifestes ? La problématique de l’absence est commune à toutes les approches archéologiques et à toutes les aires chronoculturelles. Dans les articles de ce volume, issus de communications présentées lors de la 12e Journée Doctorale d’archéologie de l’université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (ED 112), les doctorants tentent, à travers des indices indirects, de définir, de mesurer, d’expliquer ces vides et ces silences, voire de les combler. Face à la nature incomplète ou biaisée des sources archéologiques, des solutions méthodologiques sont proposées et appliquées à des problématiques et à des contextes variés, à la faveur d’approches croisées, multidimensionnelles et multiscalaires.

Abstract

"When considering societal expectations and traditions in research, assumptions are often an integral aspect – particularly in the disciplines pertaining to organization studies. The objective of this anthology is to analyze, clarify and demystify assumptions about research and the way that organizations work.&#xD;&#xD;The book is interdisciplinary in its form and content. The chapters are in part theoretical and analytical, yet draw on various empirical illustrations. In doing so, the book touches on the research process, basic assumptions in research, possibilities as well as pitfalls that both novice researchers as well as more experienced ones ought to keep in mind.&#xD;&#xD;The individual chapters address research and publication through a range of areas and topics including: accounting and management control, examination of the term ‘organization’ itself, and exploration of behavioral and social processes that lead to change in organizations and society as a whole. All of the chapters illuminate different roles in the research process in organization studies.&#xD;&#xD;Dealing with Expectations and Traditions in Research will be of interest to researchers on all levels, including PhD students and master’s students writing term papers and their theses, as well as in methodological courses and discussions."&#xD;

Abstract

"In the anthology Didactic classroom studies. A potential research direction didactic classroom studies are characterized and discussed in relation to, on the one hand, didactics and, on the other hand, classroom studies. It is argued that classroom studies has particular potential for realizing the ambitions that constitute didactics in empirical studies – to simultaneously focus processes of teaching and learning as well as the content of these processes and how they interact, and at the same time emphasize that teaching and learning as classroom work is intentional and flows towards specific goals. Classroom studies are not limited to pay (empirical) attention to the student, teacher or content, but have the capacity to focus on how these aspects interact and depend on each other. The research is delimited in contextual and situational terms of teaching-learning wholes, rather than primarily in terms of components (e.g., student, teacher or content). This translates to that classroom studies can capture and examine teaching and learning processes including their dependence of specific contexts in which they are conducted.&#xD;&#xD;The potential that lies in the work of classroom studies for didactics is attended to and described in more detail than previous research has done along with a set of example studies, which is a significant contribution of the anthology as a whole. The book gives examples of eight different classroom studies that focus different content areas with varied but related theoretical perspectives and specific methodological approaches. Through these concrete examples, as described and discussed in relation to each other in two concluding commentary chapter, the didactic value of the studies is made visible and didactic classroom studies are described as constituting ‘a potential research direction’. Through a detailed analysis of the chapters with empirical studies – in terms of their research questions and knowledge interests, research contexts, theoretical and analytical perspectives, specific empirical designs and didactical consequences – a number of issues are identified that could be addressed and further developed. In this way, the volume contributes not only to identifying didactic classroom studies as a potentially central research focus in educational science but also outlines a further direction for this research."&#xD;

Abstract

En 1986, paraissait l’ouvrage séminal d’Alain Gallay L’archéologie demain. À l’occasion du trentième anniversaire de ce livre, il convient de s’interroger : l’archéologie de demain est-elle devenue celle d’aujourd’hui ? Science en constante évolution depuis ses origines, à l’interface de multiples disciplines avec lesquelles elle partage les outils et les méthodes, l’archéologie contemporaine est une discipline protéiforme. De la fouille au laboratoire, de l’analyse des vestiges à celle des sociétés, les bases méthodologiques sur lesquelles elle repose font désormais appel aussi bien aux sciences humaines qu’aux sciences dites « dures ». La recherche archéologique est aujourd’hui de plus en plus souvent complétée par d’autres approches permettant de produire de nouvelles données, de poser un regard différent sur les données préexistantes ou d’en approfondir l’étude à travers de nouvelles problématiques. Le volume présente les actes de la 11e journée doctorale d’archéologie de l’ED 112. Les articles réunis offrent une réflexion épistémologique sur la discipline archéologique dans son ensemble à travers 3 axes principaux : – Les problématiques, les enjeux et les limites de l’archéologie contemporaine ; – La place de l’archéologie au sein des autres sciences et le rôle de l’interdisciplinarité dans la pratique archéologique comme dans la construction de la discipline elle-même ; – Les démarches intellectuelles de l’archéologue.

Abstract

Before new interventions can be used in disease control programmes, it is essential that they are carefully evaluated in “field trials”, which may be complex and expensive undertakings. Descriptions of the detailed procedures and methods used in trials that have been conducted in the past have generally not been published. As a consequence, those planning such trials have few guidelines available and little access to previously accumulated knowledge. In this book the practical issues of trial design and conduct are discussed fully and in sufficient detail for the text to be used as a “toolbox” by field investigators. The toolbox has now been extensively tested through use of the first two editions and this third edition is a comprehensive revision, incorporating the many developments that have taken place with respect to trials since 1996 and involving more than 30 contributors. Most of the chapters have been extensively revised and 7 new chapters have been added.
