Abstract

This book belongs to a new Series promoted by the School of Humanities and Social Sciences at Federico II University of Naples, in order to facilitate dialogue among scholars from different disciplines and to encourage interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approaches on topics, both contemporary and historical. The studies collected in this volume offer a graceful synthesis of past and present, as is typical of the humanities, that study human culture in all its form.

Abstract

Dieser Band führt zwei interdisziplinäre Forschungsfelder zusammen: Die Untersuchung der gesellschaftlichen Bedeutung des Internets und die theoretische Diskussion zum Verhältnis von Raum und Gesellschaft. Die räumlichen und gesellschaftlichen Dimensionen des Internets werden anhand physisch-materieller, struktureller, perzeptiver und kommunikativer Aspekte analysiert. Sichtbar wird dabei nicht zuletzt, welche Impulse die Raumdebatte am Forschungsobjekt Internet gewinnen kann. Der erste Teil des Bandes behandelt die Problematik der Verortung des Internets. Der zweite Teil identifiziert auf zweierlei Weise einen strukturgenerierenden Geocode des Internets. Der eingehenden Bestimmung und Untersuchung verschiedenartiger Räume des Internets widmet sich der dritte Teil des Bandes.

Abstract

This volume presents the diverse approaches and achievements of scholars of Asian cultures and languages in today’s global academy. Recent vast increases in student numbers and ethnic diversity have created pressing challenges for a higher education which engages with contemporary concerns for Asian societies as well as for Asian students involved in Western education. This collection of scholarly analyses demonstrates the centrality and significance of Asian Studies and languages for these globalising academic communities. Significantly, it demands a rethinking of traditional ‘intercultural’ education. In so doing, it brings empirical knowledge as well as multicultural interpretation and multilingual expertise to throw new light on the challenges in higher education today, and to open up new understandings of the demands of the future. - Professor John Makeham Head, Department of Chinese Studies, The Australian National University

Abstract

This groundbreaking, open access volume analyses and compares data practices across several fields through the analysis of specific cases of data journeys. It brings together leading scholars in the philosophy, history and social studies of science to achieve two goals: tracking the travel of data across different spaces, times and domains of research practice; and documenting how such journeys affect the use of data as evidence and the knowledge being produced. The volume captures the opportunities, challenges and concerns involved in making data move from the sites in which they are originally produced to sites where they can be integrated with other data, analysed and re-used for a variety of purposes. The in-depth study of data journeys provides the necessary ground to examine disciplinary, geographical and historical differences and similarities in data management, processing and interpretation, thus identifying the key conditions of possibility for the widespread data sharing associated with Big and Open Data. The chapters are ordered in sections that broadly correspond to different stages of the journeys of data, from their generation to the legitimisation of their use for specific purposes. Additionally, the preface to the volume provides a variety of alternative “roadmaps” aimed to serve the different interests and entry points of readers; and the introduction provides a substantive overview of what data journeys can teach about the methods and epistemology of research.
