This volume is an innovative, practical contribution to the developing field of qualitative research pedagogy. It is also applicable more broadly to the active teaching in higher education. Based upon constructionist tenets, this book contains three parts that offer strategies and approaches to actively engage students in qualitative inquiry. Chapter authors with roots in six countries (United States, Lithuania, Canada, Israel, China and Russia) offer practical and creative strategies and theoretical foundations for engaging students in active learning of research. The book will be of interest for instructors who wish to enhance their pedagogy and creativity in teaching, and for students who will appreciate the inclusion of students’ assignments and authentic scenarios through which instructors support students in student learning and doing of qualitative research.
Die Ausweitung der mimetischen Zone
Mimesis expanded – der Band versteht Nachahmung nicht als poetologische Form, sondern als ‚gefährliche‘ und entgrenzende Existenzweise.
Wer nachahmt, läuft Gefahr, mit der Nachahmung das Sein davonzutragen, gab kein Geringerer als Platon zu bedenken. Platon folgend, wird die Wirksamkeit von entgrenzenden Nachahmungsprozessen auf unterschiedliche kulturelle und soziale Bereiche aus historischer, epistemischer und medialer Ebene untersucht. In den einzelnen Beiträgen geraten theoretische Reflexe und Konzepte, u.a. von Gabriel Tarde, Roger Caillois, Erich Auerbach, Pierre Klossowksi und Pier Paolo Pasolini in den Blick, die von der Furcht vor exzessiven Potenzialen mimetischer Praktiken, aber auch von ihrer Faszination zeugen: Denn die Nachahmung erlaubt es, die ontologischen Grenzziehungen zwischen Personen, Dingen und Zeichen zu verwischen.
This book is an introduction to the role played by Spanish formal education in providing feminist pedagogies to adolescents and young people, throughout the first two decades of the 21st century. The images of Spanish feminist protests in recent years, with a considerable presence of young girls but also boys, have spread around the world. But what is their relationship with gender-based inequalities? What is the role of formal education in their understanding of social reality? The authors combine a sociological and historical analysis of the social and educational changes that have taken place in Spanish youth during these decades, with a pedagogical orientation towards practice.

What does power abuse look and feel like in the academic world? How does it affect university faculty, students, education and research? What can we do to counteract and prevent power abuse? These questions are addressed in this collection of autobiographical poems, essays and illustrations about academia. The contributors reflect on individual experiences as well as underlying institutional structures, providing original perspectives on bullying, sexual harassment, discrimination, and other forms of power abuse in academic workplaces. They share their stories in order to break the culture of silence around power abuse in academia and point out pathways for constructive change.

New Materialism and Theology reflects on questions of human embodiment, nonhuman agency, technological innovation, and what really matters now and in possible futures. Bringing theological inquiry together with the philosophical movement of new materialism, Sam Mickey points toward a variety of ways for thinking about matter and everything that materializes in human and more-than-human worlds. Mickey provides introductory definitions and historical context for understanding the relationship between various theological and materialist ideas and practices. He examines the self-declared novelty and materiality of new materialism, noting the limitations of those labels while articulating the very new and quite material challenges that new materialism does indeed pose, challenges of urgent existential importance that demand theological responses. New Materialism and Theology faces the theological implications and material possibilities facing humanity while ecological and technological realities seem to be pointing toward posthuman or transhuman futures or perhaps something else entirely.
Commemorating the Legacy of James Legge (1815-1897)
Author: Alexander Chow
This volume explores the important legacy of Scottish missions to China, with a focus on the missionary-scholar and Protestant sinologist par excellence James Legge (1815–1897). It challenges the simplistic caricature of Protestant missionaries as Orientalizing imperialists, but also shows how the Chinese context and Chinese persons “converted” Scottish missionaries in their understandings of China and the broader world.

Scottish Missions to China brings together essays by leading Chinese, European, and North American scholars in mission history, sinology, theology, cultural and literary studies, and psychology. It calls attention to how the historic enterprise of Scottish missions to China presents new insights into Scottish-Chinese and British-Chinese relations.

Contributors are: Joanna Baradziej, Marilyn L. Bowman, Alexander Chow, Gao Zhiqiang, Joachim Gentz, David Jasper, Christopher Legge, Lauren F. Pfister, David J. Reimer, Brian Stanley, Yang Huilin, Zheng Shuhong.
This course investigates the relationships between international criminal law and other branches of international law. It begins by examining four issues of general international law: the principal sources of international law, jurisdiction and immunities, State responsibility, and use of force. It then explores internationalhumanitarian law, focusing on definitions of war crimes and difficulties in linking IHL and ICL. Next, it examines refugee law, paying particular attention to the exclusion of war criminals from refugee protection and to international crimes that may be related to the rights and treatment of refugees. The final chapter explores the relationship between ICL and human rights law, examining the position of human rights within the Rome Statute of the ICC, as well as the human rights aspects of genocide, crimes against humanity, various procedural rights relating to fair international trials and the contribution of human rights fact-finding mechanisms.
Die beliebte Reihe Philosophische Einstiege wird um einen Meilenstein erweitert: Obwohl er es selbst nie behauptet hat, war der Schotte David Hume bei seinen Zeitgenoss:innen durch seine subtile, aber zugleich tiefschürfende Kritik an der christlichen Religionslehre als Atheist verschrien.
Er selbst betonte in seinen Schriften – ohne die Vernunft zu missachten – die sinnliche Wahrnehmung, Erfahrungswerte und Gefühle als Maßstäbe unseres moralischen Handelns. Eine Position, die der späteren Common-Sense-Philosophie konträr entgegenstand. Er etablierte sich damit als wichtiger Vertreter der Aufklärung im 18. Jahrhundert, der mit Jean-Jacques Rousseau und Adam Smith verkehrte, und dessen Philosophie bis heute diskutiert wird. Dieser Comic stellt anschaulich, geistreich, aber trotzdem detailliert die Biographie und die Thesen Humes dar und geht der Frage nach, wie er es schaffte, einst sogar Immanuel Kant aus seinem „dogmatischen Schlummer“ zu wecken. Selbst ohne Vorwissen gelingt damit eine Einführung in die Gedankenwelt von einem der bedeutendsten Philosophen.

Kaum ein Begriff hat so viele Erweiterungen und Umdeutungen erfahren wie der Begriff der Natur. Seit seiner Einführung in der ionischen Naturphilosophie befindet er sich in einem Prozess stetiger Revision und inhaltlicher Ausdifferenzierungen.
Die damit einhergehende Inkohärenz und Unübersichtlichkeit ist aber kein semantisches Unglück. In den verschiedenen begrifflichen Konstellationen zeichnen sich vielmehr der Ort der humanen Lebensform in der Natur und die epistemischen, ethischen und ästhetischen Einstellungen zur Natur ab. Die Beiträge thematisieren arbeitsteilig semantische, systematische und normative Aspekte menschlicher Naturverhältnisse wie Ursprung und Veränderung, die menschliche Natur, Verbindungen von Naturwissenschaft, Ethik, Technik und Ästhetik sowie bioethische, tierethische, umweltethische und klimaethische Herausforderungen.
