Abstract

The Deutsche und Österreichische Alpenverein resulted from a merger of the Österreichischer Alpenverein founded in 1862 with the Deutsche Alpenverein in 1873. Both clubs had been initiated by urban circles in Vienna, Munich and other major cities in Germany and Austria. The Alpenverei soon became very popular and on the eve of World War I had more than 100.000 members. In the beginning, the Alpenverein concentrated its activities on the scientific exploration of the Alps, which was regularly reported upon in its periodicals. Subsequently, the Alpenverein established a regular service of well educated mountain guides as well as a net of thousands of kilometres of mountain routes and mountain huts to serve the needs of the growing number of Alpine tourists. Routes and huts were established by the numerous sections founded over the decades between the North Sea in the north and the Adriatic Sea in the south, between Strassbourg in the west and Königsberg in the east. Besides such practical goals, the Alpenverein also cherished ideal motives such as the intention of providing city dwellers by way of compensation with the chance of enjoying nature and finding physical recreation, which at the same were to foster qualities of character such as determination, daring and presence of mind. The sections - besides giving information on the Alps - also cherished the social life among their members, especially during the annual general meetings, which were organized alternately by various sections and which were to rank among the highlights of urban social life. The exploration and visits of the Alps were often related with a kind of colonial though well intended attempts to influence the alpine population, since the Alpenverein also considered itself a "provider of culture". The alpine population, however, had - at least in the beginning and with but few exceptions - only little understanding for the activities of the alpine tourists, although in the end and as a consequence of the emerging alpine tourism, which was strongly promoted by the Alpenverein, the benefits prevailed. After many years of peaceful development characterized by cooperation not only between the German and the Austrian sections of the club, but also between the Alpenverein and similar clubs in the neighbouring alpine countries, the political conflicts before and during World War I resulted in more radical attitudes within the Alpenverein, especially vis-a-vis the Italian side. Thanks to its knowledge and infrastructure in the Alps, the Alpenverein was able to support the Austrian army in its war in the mountains. All in all, however, it may be said without exaggeration that the Deutsche und Österreichische Alpenverein contributed a great deal and substantially to the exploration, the knowledge and - by making them more easily accessible - the popularity of the Alps, to the expansion of the members horizons and perceptions as well as, finally, to the material and in many cases spiritual improvement of the alpine regions themselves.

Abstract

Nous avons été amenés à formuler l’hypothèse selon laquelle l’histoire de Amman est celle d’une ville rebelle à elle-même. À l’extrême, certains pourront même dire que Amman n’existe pas, que Amman n’est pas ou pas réellement une ville. Et de fait, Amman nous dérange car ce que nous en savons ne ressemble pas à l’image que nous nous faisons d’une ville comme on le dirait de Beyrouth, Damas, Bagdad ou Le Caire, pour ne parler que de capitales voisines. À suivre ce questionnement, nous convenons de reprendre à notre compte une approche de la ville qui veut qu’elle constitue une totalité signifiante douée d’expressions spécifiques en même temps que de caractéristiques communes à toute autre ville. De ce dernier point de vue, personne ne doutera de l’existence de Amman. Infrastructures, densités, activités, échanges, communications, etc., en font même une grande ville. C’est, par contre, dans l’ordre de la représentation que Amman pose problème. Soit que son modèle de citadinité n’est pas encore identifiable à celui d’autres villes connues. Et l’on verra, effectivement, que le mélange des influences qui ont façonné Amman peut en faire un cas à part. Soit, et c’est une piste de recherche que je voudrais privilégier, le silence de Amman sur son histoire est une partie même de cette histoire dont il s’agirait alors de déceler les clés d’accès au-delà de l’idéologie véhiculée par son texte modèle.

Abstract

Arua como lugar estratégico para a observação da vida urbana no que esta tem de mais peculiar é o tema central deste livro. A proposta é simples e exploratoria: procurar diferentes aproximações a esta realidade complexa a partir do olhar da antropologia, da história, da sociología e da arquitectura, em contextos geográficos e temporais distintos. A rua surge como problema a identificar e como lugar privilegiado para a troca e circulação de saberes disciplinares. Enquanto imagem e símbolo de um modo de vida urbano, lugar onde ocorrem as sociabilidades mais “típicas” da cidade, a rua condensa e viabiliza todo um imaginário feito de discursos, memórias e emoções, que atravessam e elaboram simbolicamente a cidade naquilo que ela tem de mais original. Espaço, tempo e sociabilidade são apenas tres tópicos que ajudam a ler as contribuições da presente colectânea, cujos autores partilham urna preocupação fundamental: apreender a rua à escala de quem a vive, de perto e em situação... Na Paris popular oitocentista, nos actuais campos de refugiados ou na Lisboa dos séculos xix e xx, vamos ao encontro dos lugares da rua.

Abstract

Bernhard Georg Andermüller (1644-1717), envoy of Dessau, and Michel Herstal de la Tache drew fascinating maps/plans of early modern Vienna. We see on the one hand the working environments of an early modern envoy on these plan but also the fortification of the town and the suburbs around 1700 can still be clearly felt.

Abstract

"The relational complexity of urban and rural landscapes in space and in time.&#xD;&#xD;The development of historical geographical information systems (HGIS) and other methods from the digital humanities have revolutionised historical research on cultural landscapes. Additionally, the opening up of increasingly diverse collections of source material, often incomplete and difficult to interpret, has led to methodologically innovative experiments. One of today’s major challenges, however, concerns the concepts and tools to be deployed for mapping processes of transformation—that is, interpreting and imagining the relational complexity of urban and rural landscapes, both in space and in time, at micro- and macro-scale.&#xD;&#xD;Mapping Landscapes in Transformation gathers experts from different disciplines, active in the fields of historical geography, urban and landscape history, archaeology and heritage conservation. They are specialised in a wide variety of space-time contexts, including regions within Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and periods from antiquity to the 21st century."&#xD;
