Stromerzeugung aus erneuerbaren Energien ist wetterabhängig. Noch dazu ist Strom grundsätzlich nicht speicherbar. Was besagt dies für unser Verbrauchsverhalten? Bedeutet die Flexibilisierung der Stromabnahme einen Verzicht zu Zeiten der geringeren Stromerzeugung? Oder gäbe es Instrumente, Strommengen und Kapazitäten zu bündeln, um einen umverteilenden Ausgleich zu erreichen? Ist Versorgungssicherheit ohne Eingriffe in den Markt möglich? Dies nahm der Gesetzgeber mit der Einführung des § 14a EnWG im Jahr 2011 an. Die weitere Konkretisierung des einschlägigen rechtlichen Rahmens fehlt. In diesem Band wird ein Vorschlag entwickelt, wie die Norm in die Praxis umgesetzt werden könnte.

Wissenskommunikation im Web

Sprachwissenschaftliche Perspektiven und Analysen

Series:

Edited by Katrin Beckers and Marvin Wassermann

Für die individuelle und gesamtgesellschaftliche Wissenskommunikation, d.h. den kommunikativ vermittelten Transfer sprachlich gefassten Wissens, haben sich durch die allumfassende Digitalisierung die Bedingungsgefüge in vielfacher Hinsicht verändert. Neue technisch-mediale Rahmenbedingungen, diversifizierte und flexibilisierte Textsorten und Interaktionstypen sowie undurchsichtige Akteurs-Konstellationen lassen eine ganze Reihe neuer wissenskommunikativer Erscheinungsformen entstehen, die trotz ihrer großen alltäglichen Bedeutung erst in Ansätzen beschrieben sind. Der Sammelband dokumentiert sprach- und transferwissenschaftliche Perspektiven auf diesen multidisziplinär im Fokus stehenden Gegenstandsbereich.

Rumäniendeutsche Seinszusammenhänge und weitläufigere Bezüge

Literarische Kommunikation in der deutschsprachigen Literatur Rumäniens - das Fallbeispiel Joachim Wittstock

Edited by Maria Sass, Olivia Spiridon and Stefan Sienerth

Dieser Band beleuchtet am Einzelbeispiel des in Hermannstadt/Sibiu lebenden Schriftstellers Joachim Wittstock größere Zusammenhänge der deutschen Minderheitenliteratur in Rumänien. Einblicke in biografische Episoden, persönliche Erinnerungen an den Autor und Analysen seines Werkes wie des sozio-kulturellen Umfeldes bestimmen die thematische Breite dieser Veröffentlichung. Literaturwissenschaftler aus Deutschland und Rumänien, darunter viele Weggefährten und Freunde Joachim Wittstocks, nehmen den 80. Geburtstag des Schriftstellers und Literaturhistorikers zum Anlass, ein erhellendes Licht auf sein Werk und auf den deutschen Literaturbetrieb in Rumänien in den 1970er und 1980er Jahren zu werfen. Sie zeigen Möglichkeiten und Mechanismen auf, wie eine Minderheitenliteratur in einer der repressivsten kommunistischen Diktaturen Osteuropas unter schweren Bedingungen fortbestehen und grenzübergreifende literarische Netzwerke aufrechterhalten konnte. Und nicht zuletzt schildern sie, unter welchen Bedingungen ihre Akteure lebten, schrieben, miteinander kommunizierten und dem Druck der Zensur Widerstand leisteten.

Indigenous Epistemology

Descent into the Womb of Decolonized Research Methodologies

Marva McClean and Marcus Waters

Indigenous Epistemology problematizes the self-reflexive inquiry between two researchers engaged in transnational collaboration that asserts experiential pedagogy as a tool to decolonize research methodology and honor the inter-generational stories that empower Indigenous people across the globe. The authors demonstrate the direct connection between Black Lives Matter, SOSBlakAustralia and the Maroons of Jamaica as examples of contemporary Indigenous people disrupting hegemony through agentive action that inspires global awareness and pushes for systemic change. In elevating the critical epistemologies of the ancient cultures of the Aboriginals of Australia and the African Diaspora, the authors assert that the legacies and current operations of colonialism must be disrupted and replaced with an emancipatory epistemology.

What's Race Got To Do With It?

How Current School Reform Policy Maintains Racial and Economic Inequality. Second Edition

Series:

Edited by Edwin Mayorga, Ujju Aggarwal and Bree Picower

At the time that the first edition of What’s Race Got to Do with It was published (2015), many on the left were struggling to both fight back neoliberal education reforms—such as charter schools, school closings, high-stakes testing—understand how these reforms were defined, and how they circulated through the entanglements of race and class. In the years since, we have seen the accelerated growth of social movements push back against this logic. The steady and grounded work of those fighting back neoliberal education reform has increased the visibility and critique of privatization, market-based reforms, and segregation; demonstrating the interlocking connections between racism and capitalism. We have also seen the election of Donald Trump to the office of U.S. President and the appointment of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, signaling an intensified attack on public education (alongside other public infrastructures) and a return to "racism as we knew it." As neoliberal multicultural reforms that defined the Obama administration are rolled back, this new edition of What’s Race considers how we might sharpen our analysis concerning what we are working to defend and what we are working to transform. Each chapter author tracks the changes and continuities of recent years, revealing the ways in which market-driven education reforms work with and through race, and sharing grassroots stories of resistance to these reforms. We hope that this book will continue to provide readers with a guide to action that emboldens our struggles for justice.

Stephanie Chasin

The longest-lived stereotype of Jews with the broadest appeal is the idea that Jews are money-driven. From the fictional moneylender Shylock demanding his pound of flesh to the Wall Street banker, for centuries Jews have been portrayed as caring only for profit and motivated by greed. This is a construction that is allied to the history of anticapitalism. Whether medieval theologians or antiglobalist protesters, capitalism is commonly criticized as exploitative and immoral as are the providers of capital. This book tells the story of how, when, and where Jews and capital became negatively stereotyped. With a new perspective, it places the issue of antisemitism within a larger ideological question, debated since the beginnings of capitalism. Is making money off money immoral and is there such a thing as "excessive" profit? The book shows that Jews were not the sole creditors or even the dominant ones, that their history was not one of unceasing hostility, and that it is when that stereotype of Jews and money is a political tool that it is at its most dangerous.

The Central Legislature in British India, 1921–47

Parliamentary Experiences Under the Raj

Mohammad Rashiduzzaman

The Central Legislature in British India 1921–47: Parliamentary Experiences Under the Raj is an exceptional exposé of Colonial India’s highest legislative body. With its wealth of materials and in-depth description of the former Indian Legislature’s actual working, its political milieu and its institutional development, this book belongs to the larger genre of the British Indian narratives on the constitutional encounters between the rulers and the ruled. This book touches on a critical range of areas essential to our understanding of the British Raj in India. This book adds a significant depth to a neglected quarter of historical knowledge—the chronicle of parliamentary experiences and the representative institution-building in Colonial India. Undeniably, the Central Legislature was the only acknowledged all-India forum where the Indian legislators and the Imperial Executive, time and again, ran into each other. Yet, even at the lowest ebb of the Indian lawmakers’ disillusionment, the two flanks, intermittently, showed a modicum of mutual respect: though limited, the two sides indirectly shared power, went through the motion and contributed to policy-making typically over a strip of non-controversial subjects.

The City as Place

Emotions, Experiences, and Meanings

Edited by Rebecca Madgin and Nicolas Kenny

The purpose of this series is to examine the city as a lived place. Specifically, we are interested in the ways in which the city is invested with meaning through everyday lived experiences. The series is particularly interested in submissions that focus on the perceptual and felt dimensions of urban places through exploring the experiential, emotional, sensory, and affective dimensions that contribute to how people behave in, feel about, and move around in cities. Books in this series will interrogate the relationship between people and place through a focus on the diverse ways in which subjective and intimate feelings are fundamental constituents of the urban experience. We encourage authors to examine the city as a lived place from a range of different perspectives, and to be inclusive of individual and collective voices in the city to better understand the historical development and contemporary evolution of diverse urban settings.

Some of the questions we seek to explore through the series include, but are not restricted to:

  • How is the city experienced, by whom, and how does this change over time?
  • Who shapes the experience of the city and for what reasons?
  • How do individual and shared joy, fear, pride, nostalgia, disgust, or other emotions, shape the meanings attributed to urban spaces?
  • How does the lived experience of, and emotional connections to, urban places inform the way particular spaces within cities are preserved and memorialized, or alternatively demolished and redeveloped?
  • In what ways is our understanding of the lived experience of the city sharpened through the lens of comparative, transnational, and global approaches?

The series seeks to examine the real and the imaginary, the representational and the non-representational, the historical and the contemporary, the remembered and the recreated in all historical periods including research on the twenty-first century city. The series is open to work covering all geographic areas, and we encourage authors, where possible and relevant, to situate their studies in comparative, transnational, or global perspectives. Books may be published in English or in French.
