Interdisziplinäre Aspekte des Sprechens und Schreibens über Kunst
Erstmalig eröffnet dieses Buch einen empirischen Einblick in die Praxis des Sprechens und Schreibens über Kunstwerke. Es liefert Beiträge zur Thematisierung von Kunst in der Linguistik, Literaturwissenschaft, Soziologie, Psychologie, Rhetorik, Archäologie, Kunstgeschichte, -philosophie und -pädagogik. Obwohl über die Phänomenologie der Alltagskommunikation über Kunst, ihre sprachlichen Mittel und Formen, bis heute wenig bekannt ist, wird ihre Relevanz sowohl aus kunstwissenschaftlicher als auch kunstpraktischer Perspektive immer wieder betont. Der Band versteht sich als ein erster Schritt dazu, diese Phänomenologie der Kunstkommunikation methodisch und empirisch zugänglich zu machen und in ihren Konsequenzen interdisziplinär zu diskutieren. Die methodische Grundlage dafür liefern neuere Ansätze aus der Gesprächs- und Textlinguistik, die erstmals im Hinblick auf den Bereich der Kunstkommunikation fruchtbar gemacht werden.

Participation of concerned actors and the public is a central element in the legal regulation of science and technology. In constitutional democracy, these participatory forms are governed by the rule of law. The volume critically examines participatory governance in this realm and makes suggestions with respect to further institutional and political-cultural developments. It assembles contributions of a broad interdisciplinary range within a comparative research programme, opening the black box of participatory governance in legal procedure. The contributions are the result of almost a decade of fruitful discussion between he authors. They also demonstrate the potential of a cross-disciplinary approach that stretches from sociology, via political science and jurisprudence to hermeneutics, linguistics and conversation analysis.

Contributors are Gabriele Abels, Matthias Baier, Alfons Bora, Elena Collavin, Heiko Hausendorf, Zsuzsanna Iványi, András Kertész, Les Levidow, Kornélia Marinecz, Peter Münte, Patrick O’Mahony, Giuseppe Pellegrini, and Henrik Rahm.

Abstract

Against the background of a still controversial debate over participatory governance, the intention of this issue is to scrutinise critically central aspects of this controversy. In particular, the papers here explore regular, routine forms of participatory governance in the heart of political power, namely in administrative procedure. By contrast, political sciences and sociology often focus on new, alternative procedures, including citizen juries, consensus conferences, scenario workshops, and public consultation exercises. Normal forms of participatory governance in constitutional democracy are inevitably governed by rule of law such that a legal framework lies behind participants' concrete actions or communications.

Abstract

The article studies the characteristics of participatory governance on the level of micro-structures. The analysis of micro-structures allows for better understanding the strengths and weaknesses of participatory discourse. A detailed analysis of communicative structures in partici atory decision-making procedures provides insight into the process of social positioning. The rather strict legal framework in such procedures promotes both inclusive and exclusive dynamics in the process of communication. Participation per se does not guarantee an advance in democratic culture nor is it as such suited to cope with the "democratic deficit" often mentioned in scholarly and political debate. Against this empirical background the article explores new ways for democratic engagement, particularly in the governance of science and technology. In every case of participatory governance the precise function of participation should be clarified with respect to the particular procedure and with respect to the constitutional and legal framework. The competent authority should inform the public about the legal conditions underlying the case, for example in a local information forum. The implementation of "alternative" institutional forms for citizen participation in administrative decision-making should be prepared and accompanied by a precise scientific analysis of the function and structure of participation in the particular model.
