Die Lebensphase „Jugend“ wird häufig mit Defiziten, Störungen und riskanten Verhaltensweisen assoziiert. Besondere mediale und politische Aufmerksamkeit erhalten Jugendliche dann, wenn sie mit strafrechtsrelevantem Verhalten in Erscheinung treten. In diesen publizistisch-politischen Kontexten stoßen kriminologische und sozialpädagogische Befunde und Erkenntnisse häufig auf wenig Interesse. Vor diesem Hintergrund thematisiert das Handbuch zentrale Felder der aktuellen wissenschaftlichen Auseinandersetzung mit jugendlicher Kriminalität. Die aktuelle Auflage wurde hierzu grundlegend neu bearbeitet und umfasst auch jüngere rechtliche Reformen u.a. zum Jugendarrest. Das Handbuch wurde insgesamt thematisch erweitert und berücksichtigt auch internationale Bezüge sowie unterschiedliche theoretische und fachliche Ansatzpunkte. Das Buch schließt deutlicher als bisher an die zunehmende Spezialisierung der Praxis und der Forschung an.

The Routledge Handbook of Language in Conflict presents a range of linguistic approaches as a means for examining the nature of communication related to conflict. Divided into four sections, the Handbook critically examines text, interaction, languages and applications of linguistics in situations of conflict. Spanning 30 chapters by a variety of international scholars, this Handbook: includes real-life case studies of conflict and covers conflicts from a wide range of geographical locations at every scale of involvement (from the personal to the international), of every timespan (from the fleeting to the decades-long) and of varying levels of intensity (from the barely articulated to the overtly hostile) sets out the textual and interactional ways in which conflict is engendered and in which people and groups of people can be set against each other considers what linguistic research has brought, and can bring, to the universal aim of minimising the negative effects of outbreaks of conflict wherever and whenever they occur. The Routledge Handbook of Language in Conflict is an essential reference book for students and researchers of language and communication, linguistics, peace studies, international relations and conflict studies.

Knowledge in Action

Neue Formen der Kommunikation in der Wissensgesellschaft

Mit dem Begriff der Wissensgesellschaft betonen Zeitdiagnosen den wachsenden Stellenwert von (wissenschaftlichem) Wissen für alle gesellschaftlichen Handlungsfelder. Eine noch wenig erforschte Konsequenz dieser Entwicklung ist das Erfordernis, Wissen zu kommunizieren und für andere Handlungsfelder zu übersetzen. Der Band untersucht die Frage, wie verschiedene Akteure der Wissensgesellschaft diese Kommunikationserfordernisse bewältigen und gestalten. Im ersten Teil finden sich Beiträge, die spezifische neue Formen und Paradigmen der Wissenskommunikation rekonstruieren und theoretisch verorten. Hier geht es um einschlägige Beispiele aus dem Spektrum neuer Kommunikationsformen, wie sie etwa Wissenschaftscomics und -romane darstellen. Im zweiten Teil stehen mediatisierte Kommunikationsformen im Fokus, die beispielsweise auf dem Wissensaustausch auf webbasierten Question-and-Answer-Plattformen oder YouTube aufbauen. Abschließend rückt die Kommunikations- und Übersetzungsarbeit von Akteuren ins Zentrum, die zwischen verschiedenen Wissens- und Handlungsfeldern vermitteln.
