The Hybrid Studio: Introducing Google+ as a Blended Learning Platform for Architectural Design Studio Teaching

Nicolai Steinø &
Studio teaching in architecture and design traditionally bases on the presence of both instructors and material learning artefacts. Instructors typically give supervision to students one-on-one at their drawing tables. Students, in turn, work with a tangible material such as pens and tracing paper, and scale model material such as cardboard and styrofoam. From this triangle of students, instructors and learning artefacts, the learning emerges. As such, the physical presence of people and stuff is a...

Directors’ Duties and Corporate Social Responsibility under German Law – Is Tort Law Litigation Changing the Picture?

Peter Rott
This article discusses the right and a potential duty of directors to pursue CSR policies under German law. It first explains the two main duties of directors: to make sure that the company complies with its legal obligations, which has been broadly interpreted in Germany to include the duty to extend to domestic and foreign subsidiaries’ compliance with the law, and to act for the (economic) benefit of the company. CSR policies will often only...

Editorial - Smart district heating and energy system analyses

Poul Alberg Østergaard & Henrik Lund
This editorial introduces the 13th volume of the International Journal of Sustainable Energy Planning and Management, which addresses thermal storage systems in district heating systems, simulation of scheduling of energy units as well as the structure of pricing systems for district heating in Sweden. Beyond the area of district heating, the volume probes into the effects of energy price reductions on energy demand in Hungary as well as the geographical distribution of electricity demand and...

Allocation of annual electricity consumption and power generation capacities across multiple voltage levels in a high spatial resolution

Ludwig Hülk, Lukas Wienholt, Ilka Cußmann, Ulf Philipp Müller, Carsten Matke & Editha Kötter
The electrical energy system is in transition. There is continuing expansion of renewable generation, which causes a spatial and temporal shift of energy flows at different voltage levels of the power grid. On the consumption side, demand patterns are expected to change. The limited availability of data with high spatial resolution hinders independent and transparent assessments. In view of this, the research project open_eGo is developing methods focusing on electricity networks and open-science principles. In...

Ahmad Sedaghat, Mohammad AlJundub, Armin Eilaghi, Ehab Bani-Hani, Farhad Sabri, Raouf Mbarki & M. El Haj Assad
The PBL unit of fluid and electrical drive systems is taught in final semester of undergraduates in mechanical engineering department of the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK). The recent project on an automated punching machine is discovered more appealing to both students and instructors in triggering new ideas and satisfaction end results. In this case study, the way this PBL unit is coordinated and facilitated is explained. Two examples of student works are presented. The...

Åbninger og lukninger i e-mailkorrespondance på fire sprog

Eva Skafte Jensen, Kirsten Jeppesen Kragh & Erling Strudsholm
This paper describes different strategies of politeness in e-mail communication between students and teachers and between colleagues in Academia. The data are found in e-mails in the following languages: Danish, Swedish, French, and Italian. The aim of the study is to give insights into differences and similarities across languages and cultures. The analyses are anchored in pragmatically oriented research in politeness as well as the diasystematic dimensions, as proposed by Eugenio Coseriu, and inspired by...

Throwing the Body Into the Fight: The Body as an Instrument in Political Art

Max Ryynänen
Thinking about the body in contemporary art leads easily to an exaggerated focus on extremities and excess. Beginning from Pier Paolo Pasolini’s violently radical life, and ending up in Martin Jay’s critique of Richard Shusterman’s somaesthetics, the first part of this article discusses different conceptions regarding the role of the body in art. I aspire to show the need to rearticulate the role of the body in contemporary art. In the second part of the...

Embodied Creation and Perception in Olafur Eliasson’s and Carsten Höller’s Projects

Else Marie Bukdahl
This paper examines the relationship between somaesthetics and several art projects by Olafur Eliasson and Carsten Höller. Involving an embodied, perceptual, and interactive dialogue between artist, viewer, and the environmental surroundings, these artworks aim not only to enhance our aesthetic experience and to increase our awareness of the body in space and in action, but also, through their artistic means of enhancing embodied and environmental awareness, to benefit life more generally.

Professional discourse and professional identities at cross-purposes: Designer or entrepreneur?

Birgitte Norlyk
What happens when designer dreams meet business reality? This paper illustrates how a group of professional designers experienced emotional tensions and conflicts of personal and professional identity during an eight-week voluntary course on business and entrepreneurship for the creative professions. The designers' discourse, which revolved around ideals of commitment towards artistic integrity, aesthetics and design clashed with the hard core discourse of business which highlighted practical concerns relating especially to market considerations and the necessity...

Discursive legitimation in online crowdfunding: A study of Kickstarter projects promoting human rights

Ana Kedves
The internet-based crowdfunding platforms have in many ways changed the way projects are nowadays funded. Apart from opening to the small businesses, it has created funding opportunities for non-governmental organisations, citizens’ initiatives, non-formal groups and individual projects, which used to have rather limited access to this sort of resources. However, the widening and liberalisation of the market poses new challenges for these entities as well – the project ideas have to be effectively elaborated in...
