Over 39 chapters The Routledge Companion to British Cinema History offers a comprehensive and revisionist overview of British cinema as, on the one hand, a commercial entertainment industry and, on the other, a series of institutions centred on economics, funding and relations to government. Whereas most histories of British cinema focus on directors, stars, genres and themes, this Companion explores the forces enabling and constraining the films’ production, distribution, exhibition, and reception contexts from the late nineteenth century to the present day. The contributors provide a wealth of empirical and archive-based scholarship that draws on insider perspectives of key film institutions and illuminates aspects of British film culture that have been neglected or marginalized, such as the watch committee system, the Eady Levy, the rise of the multiplex and film festivals. It also places emphasis on areas where scholarship has either been especially productive and influential, such as in early and silent cinema, or promoted new approaches, such as audience and memory studies.

The Routledge Companion to Digital Journalism Studies offers an unprecedented collection of essays addressing the key issues and debates shaping the field of Digital Journalism Studies today. Across the last decade, journalism has undergone many changes, which have driven scholars to reassess its most fundamental questions, and in the face of digital change, to ask again: ‘Who is a journalist?’ and ‘What is journalism?’. This companion explores a developing scholarly agenda committed to understanding digital journalism and brings together the work of key scholars seeking to address key theoretical concerns and solve unique methodological riddles. Compiled of 58 original essays from distinguished academics across the globe, this Companion draws together the work of those making sense of this fundamental reconceptualization of journalism, and assesses its impacts on journalism’s products, its practices, resources, and its relationship with audiences. It also outlines the challenge presented by studying digital journalism and, more importantly, offers a first set of answers. This collection is the very first of its kind to attempt to distinguish this emerging field as a unique area of academic inquiry. Through identifying its core questions and presenting its fundamental debates, this Companion sets the agenda for years to come in defining this new field of study as Digital Journalism Studies, making it an essential point of reference for students and scholars of journalism.

Since the 1990s, in response to dramatic transformations in the worlds of technology and the economy, design - a once relatively definable discipline, complete with a set of sub-disciplines - has become unrecognizable. Consequently, design scholars have begun to address new issues, themes and sub-disciplines such as: sustainable design, design for well-being, empathic design, design activism, design anthropology, and many more. The Routledge Companion to Design Studies charts this new expanded spectrum and embraces the wide range of scholarship relating to design - theoretical, practice-related and historical - that has emerged over the last four decades. Comprised of forty-three newly-commissioned essays, the Companion is organized into the following six sections: Defining Design: Discipline, Process Defining Design: Objects, Spaces Designing Identities: Gender, Sexuality, Age, Nation Designing Society: Empathy, Responsibility, Consumption, the Everyday Design and Politics: Activism, Intervention, Regulation Designing the World: Globalization, Transnationalism, Translation Contributors include both established and emerging scholars and the essays offer an international scope, covering work emanating from, and relating to, design in the United Kingdom, mainland Europe, North America, Asia, Australasia and Africa. This comprehensive collection makes an original and significant contribution to the field of Design Studies.

Medien - Diversität - Ungleichheit

Zur medialen Konstruktion sozialer Differenz

Ungleiche soziale Verhältnisse und eine fehlende soziale Integration stehen im Widerspruch zu den Gleichheitsgrundsätzen moderner demokratischer Gesellschaften. In einer Zeit, in der die soziale Frage durch verschärfte Chancenungleichheit, Bildungsunterschiede und Probleme bei der Integration in die Mehrheitsgesellschaft unübersehbar wird, geraten mediale Thematisierungen der gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse sowie personalisierte Repräsentationen und Inszenierungen der "Anderen" oder der so genannten "neuen Unterschicht" in den Blick. Die AutorInnen des Sammelbandes legen theoretisch wie auch empirisch fundierte Studien unterschiedlicher Medienangebote vor und diskutieren, wie Formate des Reality-TV, Comedysendungen oder Krimiserien soziale, kulturelle, geschlechtliche und ethnische Diversitäten in westlichen Industriegesellschaften reproduzieren, legitimieren, aber auch unterlaufen können.

This volume brings together a collection of papers on the general theoretical and methodological problems in the historiography of semiotics. It is not a history in the conventional sense, even though the main periods and figures in the development of semiotics are given due prominence. Nevertheless, it should offer the reader stimulation and food for thought in the critical approach to even the least questioned facts of semiotic history and the emphasis given to hitherto neglected problems and persons.

The Re-Making of Crisis Reporting

Since the emergence of social media in the journalistic landscape, the BBC has sought to produce reporting more connected to its audience while retaining its authority as a public broadcaster in crisis reporting. Using empirical analysis of crisis news production at the BBC, this book shows that the emergence of social media at the BBC and the need to manage this kind of material led to a new media logic in which tech-savvy journalists take on a new centrality in the newsroom. In this changed context, the politico-economic and socio-cultural logic have led to a more connected newsroom involving this new breed of journalists and BBC audience. This examination of news production events shows that in the midst of transformations in journalistic practices and norms, including newsgathering, sourcing, distribution and impartiality, the BBC has reasserted its authority as a public broadcaster.

"Ergo perit coelum--"

die Supernova des Jahres 1572 und die Überwindung der aristotelischen Kosmologie

Page: 688

In der traditionellen Kosmologie galt seit Aristoteles der Himmel als unver�nderlich. Die Erscheinung eines neuen Sterns 1572 und der Kometen nach 1577 erschuetterten diese Gewi�heit. Auf Grund pr�ziser Beobachtungen und Berechnungen gelang der Nachweis, da� die Region oberhalb des Mondes im Gegensatz zur Kosmologie des Aristoteles ver�nderlich ist. Das letzte Drittel des 16. Jahrhunderts erweist sich demnach astronomiegeschichtlich nicht allein von der allm�hlichen Rezeption des heliostatischen Weltsystems gepr�gt, sondern st�rker noch von den Interpretationen �neuer� Erscheinungen am Himmel. Der Band zeichnet die Geschichte der Auffassungen von der Unver�nderlichkeit des Himmels seit Aristoteles nach, diskutiert einzelne traditionelle Alternativen und zeigt, in welch unterschiedlichen Kontexten die neuen Objekte des Himmels interpretiert wurden. Indem neben astronomischen und philosophischen Konzeptionen auch astrologische und theologische Vorstellungen thematisiert werden, entsteht ein Bild der Genese neuzeitlicher wissenschaftlicher Kosmologie, das deren Facettenreichtum zur Geltung bringt. �W.s Werk, das mit dem in dieser Weise exponierten Brahe um einen eigenen Helden kreist, ist von stupender Gelehrsamkeit. Der begrenzende Untertitel verstellt den Blick dafuer, dass hier ueber weite Strecken eine Einfuehrung in die astronomische Diskussion des Mittelalters und der Fruehen Neuzeit gegeben und ein Entwurf zum Verstz�ndnis ihrer Entwicklung geboten wird. [�] Aber das ist nur ein h�chst willkommener Nebeneffekt einer Dissertation, die vorbehaltlos als Opus magnum anzusprechen ist.� Theologische Literaturzeitung .
