STEFAN ZWEIG UND ELLEN KEY. EINE BIOGRAFISCHE MINIATUR

Briefwechsel zwischen einem jungen österreichischen Dichter und einer schwedischen Philosophin und Gesellschaftsreformerin

Margrit Hansen

Im Jahre 1904 schreibt der junge Stefan Zweig zum ersten Mal an die von ihm verehrte Schwedin Ellen Key. Sie ist über 50, Zweig ist 23 Jahre alt. Es entwickelt sich ein fast 20 Jahre dauernder, vertrauensvoller Briefwechsel.

In diesen Briefen spiegelt sich zunächst die Entwicklung des jungen Dichters wider, später vor allem ungläubiges Entsetzen, als die kulturell verbundenen Menschen und Nationen Europas mit Ausbruch des Ersten Weltkrieges zu Feinden werden.

Ab 1915 wird in der Korrespondenz zwischen Zweig und Key deutlich, dass Resignation an Raum gewinnt. Der Krieg als humanitäre Katastrophe und Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit lässt den Glauben an die Kraft von Literatur und Kunst schwinden.

Beide kämpfen aber weiter mit der Schreibfeder für den Frieden und warnen in Wort und Schrift vor Radikalisierung. Sie hoffen weiter, dass ein menschliches Gewissen mittels Sprache nachhaltig angerührt werden kann.

Lorsque la recherche se donne des objets d’étude correspondant à des activités humaines, comme c'est le cas en éducation et formation, elle est de fait confrontée au défi qui consiste à rendre compte du réel et à agir sur lui. Cette question intéresse toutes les sciences humaines et sociales (SHS) qui ont pour objet le travail que la société fait sur elle-même pour se maintenir/se transformer. Comment rendre compte des rapports entre activités de compréhension et de transformation du monde, qui traversent et structurent la recherche, sans les enfermer dans des rapports d’opposition ou de disjonction ? Comment cette tension se manifeste-t-elle et comment est-il possible au chercheur de s’en emparer et de se positionner vis-à-vis d’elle ? Cet ouvrage propose d’apporter un nouvel éclairage à cette question à la fois épistémologique, théorique et méthodologique, en réunissant diverses contributions ayant en commun d’interroger les rapports de continuité entre comprendre et transformer. Il est pour cela organisé en trois parties.

La première concerne l'analyse des activités. Elle interroge dans quelle mesure il est possible de transformer les outils traditionnellement mobilisés en outils d'approche de l'activité comme transformation et en transformation. La deuxième a trait aux rapports en-acte qu'entretiennent la formation/accompagnement et la recherche : elle concerne toutes les situations de recouvrement entre champs de recherche, champs de pratiques, et champs de formation. La troisième a trait à l'organisation sociale de l'enseignement supérieur au regard de l'opposition comprendre/transformer ; elle concerne la structuration d'un champ disciplinaire particulièrement porteur de ces enjeux : le champ des sciences de l’éducation.

Cet ouvrage collectif se présente ainsi comme une invitation à d’autres explorations d’une question qui dépasse singulièrement le périmètre de l’éducation et qui concerne plus largement cultures de pensée et cultures d’action.

Edited by Aaron D. Knochel, Christine Liao and Ryan M. Patton

This book integrates the three fields critical theory, digital art making, and pedagogy, drawing from scholarship and practices of new media, social practice and community-based arts interventions, and arts education pedagogy. With a collection of essays from an international group of authors, we guide readers through steps artists and art educators use to explore digital media, using new media art making to enable voices and interrupt power structures. The three sections of formation, co-construction, and intervention through critical digital practice, provide a survey of current research in new media art pedagogy and social practice. The first section explores interaction techniques, sound technology, 3D printing, pedagogy as sociomaterial, and data visualization as forms of critical digital media. The second section demonstrates examples of social media as means to engage communities and digital art making to critically investigate citizenship, local and international issues, and bring together intergenerational conversation. The last section offers examples of new media art practices addressing the sociopolitical status quo to empower socially disadvantaged and relegated groups of people.

Our collection offers an important survey to university new media art and social practice courses to show the range of ways media arts technology can be used in art practice.

Educing Ivan Illich

Reform, Contingency and Disestablishment

Series:

John Baldacchino

More than a book about Illich, this is a conversation with Illich’s work as we enter the third decade of the 21st century, just under twenty years after his passing, and almost fifty years since his Deschooling Society was first published. As Illich is beatified and demonised in equal measure, Educing Ivan Illich chooses to focus on the relationship between reform, contingency and disestablishment. As reform stands for a plurality of reiterations that seek effective forms of accordance, in our recognition of contingency we freely claim that even as we might recognize the presence of universality in how everything appears on a shared horizon, we are not denied the existence and dynamic reality of plural possibilities in their inherent contradictions. In this bargain of synchronicity, we find that disestablishing the reified universe by which we have, for so long, traded, staked and even lost our freedom and intelligence, is not just a desire but it becomes a must. Unlike other commentators of Illich’s work, Baldacchino argues that what is radical about Illich is not a freestanding concept of deschooling but in how, in disestablishing social life, he exits the walls of the polis by upholding tradition as a disruptive force. In such light Illich’s work is read in what remains overdue. Odd though it may sound, this is an urgent need for anyone interested in Illich’s unique and irreplaceable contribution. To that end, Educing Ivan Illich has far more to offer than is usually expected from a commentary on someone else’s work.

Failure Pedagogies

Learning and Unlearning What It Means to Fail

Edited by Allison D. Carr and Laura R. Micciche

Can we all learn from failure equally? Failure Pedagogies examines the ways failure is often appropriated to advantage those most likely to be insulated from the risks associated with pursuing it as a creative strategy._Contributors ask questions that examine what happens when failures do not necessarily lead to progress or innovation: How is risk distributed? For whom is failure "safe" and why? For whom is failure a real end rather than an opening to generative possibilities? To address these questions, we focus largely on pedagogical settings—classrooms, universities, and the conventions that reign there—but also confi gure pedagogy as a broad cultural practice that teaches acceptable and unacceptable forms of resistance, subversion, and risk. Contributors focus on a range of topics, including teaching and failure, language failures, fake news, disaster response failures, academic racism, sexual harassment and gender bias, queer failure, intersectionality and infertility activism, and institutional failures to imagine disabled bodies. Failure Pedagogies will be of interest to scholars, students, and teachers of writing, rhetoric, and popular culture.

Service Learning in der Kindheitspädagogik

Eine qualitative Studie im Kontext der Institution Hochschule

Series:

Julia Staiger-Engel

Die Förderung eines (zivil-)gesellschaftlichen Engagements war schon immer ein zentraler Bestandteil sozialpädagogischen Handelns. Mit der gezielten Einbindung pädagogischer Einrichtungen in diese Prozesse werden seit einigen Jahren auch an deutschen Hochschulen zunehmend Wege diskutiert, wie (zivil-)gesellschaftliches Engagement, zum Beispiel im Rahmen einer »Third Mission«, verankert werden kann. In diesem Zusammenhang kommt dem aus dem US-amerikanischen Raum stammenden hochschuldidaktischen Ansatz »Service Learning« eine verstärkte Aufmerksamkeit zu. Die vorliegende Studie siedelt sich innerhalb der jungen Disziplin der Kindheitspädagogik an und rückt neben einer Diskussion von Möglichkeiten und Grenzen von Service Learning den Einfluss institutioneller aber auch kulturell-gesellschaftlicher Konstellationen in den Blick. Dabei steht die Analyse und Diskussion des Potentials von Service Learning im komplexen Zusammenspiel von kindheitspädagogischen Professionalisierungsbestrebungen und vielschichtigen Diskursen zur Öffnung von Hochschulen im Zentrum.

Internationalization in Action

Leveraging Diversity and Inclusion in Globalized Classrooms

Edited by Ching-Ching Lin and M. Cristina Zaccarini

Over the past few decades, there have been growing concerns about ways in which diversity and internationalization converge and diverge with one another across different types of educational institutions. This edited volume is one of the first books to investigate meaningful ways of integrating compe-ting goals between internationalization and diversification within the social fabric of campus life and beyond. Each chapter is a call to action that aims to leverage diversity for broader collaboration in higher education institutions in the U.S. and other sociocultural contexts, while providing insights into best practices in navigating diversity through strategic action plans. Each author challenges issues relating to the diversity efforts of internationalization across disciplinary, cultural and national boundaries as well as strategies to strengthen the campus communities’ commitment to diversity and inclusion.

In addition to its theoretical depth, as well as its cultural and disciplinary breadth, this book addresses issues relevant to many different stakeholders, and hence, potential readers in diverse and international settings. This book is of particular importance to those associated with globally mobile popula-tions, which include but are not limited to, academic faculty, higher education professionals as well as those in administrative positions and policy makers who wish to develop a critical perspective on the current practices on inter-nationalization to further their international efforts.

Black Immigrants in the United States

Essays on the Politics of Race, Language, and Voice

Edited by Ayanna Cooper and Awad Ibrahim

In the United States, ‘immigrant’ is a complicated category. It is used interchangeably with ‘refugee’ and it is, most of the time, linked to South America, especially Latina/os. Black Immigrants in the United States is arguing that immigrants are not refugees and, whether coming from the Caribbean, Latin America or Africa, Black immigrants are oft-silenced in immigration studies and unsystematically researched. Being one of the first books on the topic in the United States, Black Immigrants in the United States is a crack, a verse in the syntax which links Blackness and immigration; a required reading for anyone who is interested in immigration generally and Black immigration in particular. For example, did you know that 12-13% of the statistically defined as African Americans are ‘Black immigrants’ (both immigrants and refugees) (Ogunipe, 2011)? Out of this 12-13%, did you know the first and second-generation constitute 41% of Black first-year students in Ivy League? Black Immigrants in the United States is an attempt to answer these questions and paint a picture for this population, where they come from, what languages and histories they bring with them to the United States, and discusses their challenges as well as their triumphs. With this book, as children of migration ourselves, we are turning researching and writing about Black immigrants into acts of love and reading about them into an expression of jouissance.

Edited by Michael E. Karpyn

The American Civil War lasted from 1861 to 1865, killing nearly 700,000 Americans and costing the country untold millions of dollars. The events of this tragic war are so steeped in the collective memory of the United States and so taken for granted that it is sometimes difficult to take a step back and consider why such a tragic war occurred. To consider the series of events that led to this war are difficult and painful for students and teachers in American history classrooms. Classroom teachers must possess the appropriate pedagogical and historical resources to provide their students with an appropriate and meaningful examination of this challenging time period. Teaching the Causes of the American Civil War, 18501861 will attempt to provide these resources and teaching strategies to allow for the thoughtful inquiry, evaluation and assessment of this critical, complex and painful time period in American history.

Travailler avec les jeunes enfants

Enquêtes sur les pratiques professionnelles d’accueil et d’éducation

Series:

Edited by Anne Lise Ulmann and Pascale Garnier

Les publications sur la petite enfance concernent le plus souvent les politiques familiales et leurs conséquences sur l’emploi, ainsi que le développement et la socialisation des jeunes enfants. Mais que sait-on précisément du travail des professionnelles, des femmes dans leur très grande majorité, qui accueillent et prennent en charge ces enfants tout au long de leurs journées ? En fait, peu de chose, car sa fréquente naturalisation comme activité féminine fait obstacle à sa compréhension et sa reconnaissance.

Ce livre a l’ambition de mettre les pratiques de travail de ces professionnelles au centre d’un travail d’enquêtes pour analyser ce qu’elles éprouvent, pensent, mobilisent, inventent, transforment… Il met en lumière les différentes facettes de ce travail méconnu : les statuts d’emploi, les conditions réelles d’exercice, les conceptions éducatives, les apprentissages qu’il requiert, les exigences nouvelles sur la qualité, l’inclusion des enfants en situation de handicap… L’ouvrage explore ainsi des complexités insoupçonnées où, pour donner sens à ce travail, se reconfigurent sans cesse demandes parentales, éthique éducative et relations aux enfants.

Grâce à la pluralité des contributions et des situations analysées, l’ouvrage concerne l’ensemble des formes d’accueil et d’éducation des jeunes enfants (accueil à domicile, crèche, école maternelle, jardin d’enfants, etc.), et les différentes professions qui y exercent (éducatrice de jeunes enfants, auxiliaire de puériculture, personnels titulaires d’un CAP petite enfance, enseignante, assistante maternelle…).
