The global COVID-19 lockdown has led to a complete transformation of education. Never again could pedagogy be separated from its digital dimension. Traditional learning practices were replaced overnight by digital practices, frequently untested. Many educational settings were forced to address the fragmented national and regulatory frameworks that direct teaching and learning practice as well as testing. The Digital Learning and the Future book series was born of the pandemic, offering an outlet for teachers and scholars to share their research and practices in this new reality.

This interdisciplinary book series examines the use of digital technology in education. It is part of an unfolding educational agenda around technology-enhanced learning, where technology is both blended as a tool within existing pedagogies and drives new pedagogies. The series looks to the future, to emerging technologies and methodologies. Areas of interest include educational futures and future pedagogies, pedagogy and globalization (including MOOC), mobile learning, edtech, technology in assessment, and technology and face-to-face blended learning.

The series encourages proposals for short-format books (between 25,000 and 50,000 words) with the aim of responding quickly to this rapidly changing field. Short monographs, co-authored or edited collections, case studies, practical guides and more are all welcome.

A Hypertextual Commentary


Bartosz Adamczewski

This monograph demonstrates that the book of Deuteronomy is a result of highly creative, hypertextual reworking of the book of Ezekiel. Likewise, it shows that the books of Joshua–Judges, taken together, are a result of one, highly creative, hypertextual reworking of the book of Deuteronomy. In both cases, the detailed reworking consists of almost 700 strictly sequentially organized thematic, and at times also linguistic correspondences. The strictly sequential, hypertextual dependence on the earlier works explains numerous surprising features of Deuteronomy and Joshua–Judges. This critical analysis of Deuteronomy and Joshua–Judges sheds entirely new light on the question of the origin of the Pentateuch and the whole Israelite Heptateuch Genesis–Judges.

Die Didaktik der beruflichen Fachrichtung Informationstechnik/Informatik steht historisch, berufswissenschaftlich und ordnungspolitisch in einem Spannungsverhältnis. Eine auch nur in Ansätzen geschlossene Theoriebildung zu einer Didaktik der Informationstechnik liegt nicht vor. Ausgehend von diesem Desiderat soll mit dieser Veröffentlichung eine erste Lücke geschlossen werden. Ziel dieses Buches ist es, Gegenstandsbereiche vorzustellen, die für eine Theoriebildung einer Didaktik der beruflichen Fachrichtung Informationstechnik/Informatik von Bedeutung sind. Dazu sind Beiträge eingeholt worden, die eine theoretische Einordnung auf verschiedenen Analyseebenen ermöglichen. Band 1 „Theoriebildung" schafft somit ein erstes Fundament, das im Weiteren ausgebaut werden wird. Ziel ist es, der beruflichen Fachrichtung Informationstechnik/Informatik und deren Didaktik ein eigenständiges Profil zu geben, damit sie sich gegenüber dem Status quo emanzipieren kann.

Masculinités germano-juives dans la post-migration : Le cas des yekkes en Palestine / Israël après 1933


Patrick Farges

En 1933, le régime nazi mit en place une politique de discrimination puis de persécution des citoyens juifs du Reich, qui contraignit des milliers de personnes à la migration forcée vers diverses destinations, dont la Palestine sous mandat britannique (qui deviendra Israël en 1948). Cette migration des années 1930 est parfois appelée « cinquième aliyah » dans l’historiographie israélienne. Pour ces personnes, l’adaptation post-migratoire fut complexe : la migration représenta une rupture importante, affectant tant les liens sociaux que l’identité culturelle et les représentations genrées. Relationnelle, multidimensionnelle et intersectionnelle, l’histoire des masculinités intègre différentes formes de domination : domination des hommes sur les femmes, domination de certains hommes sur d’autres hommes, mais aussi rapports de domination sociale et raciale. Ce sont ces intersections sociales complexes, ainsi que l’influence des différentes formes de nationalisme (du nationalisme antisémite exacerbé en Allemagne jusqu’au projet sioniste) sur l’injonction à agir « en homme », qui sont au cœur de l’ouvrage.

Après le nazisme et la Shoah, il est devenu difficile de penser ensemble identité juive et allemande. Par bien des aspects pourtant, les Juifs germanophones en Palestine/Israël (désignés par le terme yekkes) ont maintenu une identité distincte. L’un des défis fut de satisfaire aux exigences du programme genré du sionisme, marqué par une obsession de la régénérescence virile et un état de guerre quasi-permanent, conduisant à survaloriser les conduites martiales. Or la majorité des hommes de la « cinquième aliyah » ne correspondaient en rien à l’idéal du pionnier (halouts) ni du « Nouveau Juif » sionistes, et certains parmi les yekkes – hommes et femmes – ne pouvaient pas ne pas voir à quel point ce nationalisme viriliste exacerbé ressemblait à celui qui les avait chassés d’Europe.

Die Reihe Perspektiven auf Berufsbildung, Arbeit und Technik versteht sich als Forum berufspädagogischer, berufsdidaktischer und berufswissenschaftlicher Forschungen. Mit ihr wird die wissenschaftliche Auseinandersetzung mit Fragen zum Lernen und Lehren in der beruflichen Bildung genauso angesprochen wie die wissenschaftliche Beschäftigung mit der beruflichen Erwerbsarbeit und die darauf bezogene curriculare und didaktische Gestaltung der Aus- und Weiterbildung. Dies erfolgt in Betrachtungen über alle Lernorte der beruflichen Bildung in regionalen, nationalen und internationalen Kontexten sowie unter Berücksichtigung historischer Fragestellungen. Hochschuldidaktisch gestaltet die Lehrkräftebildung – als eine Voraussetzung für Qualität in der beruflichen Bildung – ebenfalls einen Diskursraum dieser Reihe.

Poland and the Origins of the Second World War

A Study in Diplomatic History (1938–1939)

Marek Kornat

This monograph deals with Polish foreign policy shortly before the outbreak of the Second World War. In tracing the diplomatic activity of foreign minister Józef Beck, it discusses six general problems: (1) the Polish political situation under the pressure of appeasement; (2) the project of Intermarium and efforts to implement it; (3) the action against Czechoslovakia and the conflict with the Soviet Union; (4) the Polish attitude towards the German concept of Gesamtlosung in Germany’s relations with Poland; (5) the genesis of the Polish alliance with Great Britain; (6) the Allies’ military inaction after Nazi Germany’s aggression. In these conditions, Poland made four key decisions: it stood against Czechoslovakia, it rejected German demands, it allied itself with the United Kingdom, and it rejected the Soviet Union’s claim for the Red Army to march across Polish lands.

After the Fall

On the Writings of Czesław Miłosz


Tomasz Garbol

Tomasz Garbol’s book reconstructs Czesław Miłosz’s poetic vision of the world after the Fall. The entry point to this approach is the conviction about the ambivalence of previous interpretations of Miłosz’s works, especially about his bipolar poetic worldview (his intellectual and existential division between pessimism and ecstasy) and his understanding of the consequences of the Fall (reversible or fatalistic). The book is a literary studies take on the relationship between literature and religion. The main direction is that Miłosz’s main need in art comes from his yearning for contact with the meaning of reality, which he seeks in the activity of poetic imagination.

Therefore, from the Polish point of view, taxation of the agricultural activity is one of the most controversial issues of tax law. The main scope of the monograph is to cover not only theoretical, but also practical verification of the applied Polish regulations regarding taxation of agriculture. The numerous conclusions contained in the book relating to the tax regulation are supplemented by the outline of the final model of the taxation of land and agricultural incomes in Poland.

In conclusion, the author draws similarities between various von Mohl’s ideas and the situation of contemporary legal institutions in Germany and Poland.
