Judith Awacorach, Iben Jensen, Inger Lassen, David Ross Olanya, Hanan Lassen Zakaria & Geoffrey Tabo
The overall purpose of this study is to prefigure the feasibility of Problem Based Learning (PBL) for building research and employability capacity of MA-students in the context of Gulu University. Following a description of the basic tenets of PBL, we explain how PBL was used in experimental community outreach workshops for MA-students between 2016 and 2019. More specifically we identify traces of traditional learning practices and discuss to what extent the new learning approach might...

Florian Kragulj, Florian Fahrenbach, Alexander Kaiser, Clemens Kerschbaum & Lisa-Maria Baumgartner
In early March 2020, Austria declared a state of emergency due to COVID-19. Social life was put on hold, public and private organisations were largely shut down, and universities had to adapt their operations. A group of WU1 academics investigate how one of Europe’s biggest public universities in business and economics responded to the crisis and in the process rediscovered its core purpose.

Translocal landscapes

Massimiliano Coviello & Valentina Re
The article introduces and discusses the notion of ‘peripheral locations’ as a key concept for understanding the relation between, on the one hand, the production and distribution strategies of contemporary Italian television and, on the other, screen tourism initiatives. After defining the notion and stressing its relevance in the European circulation of national crime productions, the article focuses on the TV series La porta rossa (The Red Door) as a case study. The series is...

Failed Cultural Hybridity and Takeaways for the Euro-Noirin the American-Romanian Series Comrade Detective

Caius Dobrescu
Comrade Detective (Amazon, 2017) is a crime spoof that employs Romanian actors dubbed by famous Hollywood stars to pretend to recover a propaganda TV series produced in 1980s Communist Romania. The paper explores the huge asymmetry between the apparent cosmopolitan and glocal program of the show and its total failure in activating the meaning processes and circuits that generate cultural cross-fertilization. This failure is the result of an involuntary deconstruction of the very conditions of...

Sustainable Value Creation Through Business Models

Florian Lüdke-Freund, Romana Rauter, Esben Rahbeck Gjerdum Pedersen & Christian Nielsen

Optimal electricity supply system under Iranian framework limitations to meet its emission pledge under the Paris climate agreement

Ali Abbasi Godarzi & Abbas Maleki
As part of its Paris Agreement commitment, Iran pledged to decrease 4 percent of its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from 2020 to 2030. About 29% of total emission in Iran belongs to electricity supply while energy consumption in other sectors (transport, household, and industry) have a lower share in CO2 emission. The main concern here is finding the optimal mix of power plants in the electricity supply system that should be deployed to meet Iran’s...

Heartcore business? A study of how social enterprises, as organizations crossing traditional sectorial borders, communicate their corporate identity

Line Schmeltz
The social enterprise, i.e. a private enterprise carrying on business for the purpose of promoting and supporting social purposes beneficial to society, is a type of organization that is characterized by both crossing traditional sectorial borders and by questioning and challenging traditional management practices. In Denmark, it has been reported that social enterprises face considerable challenges in terms of not being considered legitimate by their surroundings, and it has been suggested that a lack of...

Understanding organizational boundaries

Kirsten Jæger & Anne Grethe Julius Pedersen
This article investigates various conceptualizations of organizational boundaries and seeks to establish a point of departure for the Globe special issue: Crossing organizational boundaries. It reviews literature that has paid attention to organizational boundaries in their own right and presents and discusses various definitions and categorizations of these boundaries. Because of the special issue’s concentration on the crossing of organizational boundaries, two concepts that have been particularly helpful for the understanding of cross-boundary interactions are...

Are future L3-German teachers prepared to increase students' metacognition and crosslinguistic awareness in the multilingual classroom? An analysis of teacher education programs at Danish and Norwegian universities

The multilingual turn in Europe requires an adaption of foreign language teaching approaches. This study provides theoretical and empirical reasons to treat crosslinguistic awareness as a potentially beneficial metacognitive tool for multilingual language learners. Furthermore, it explores whether future foreign language teachers are introduced to crosslinguistic awareness as a teaching tool in university teacher education. A sample of 27 national and local documents concerning parts of German foreign language teacher education in Denmark and Norway...

Complementarity and division of labor between endo and exocentric languages. The case of Danish and Spanish

Henrik Høeg Müller
This paper is based on comparative data on Danish and Spanish, and argues that systematic variations between the word formation (Müller 2013) and syntactic pat terns dominating these two languages correlate with deep rooted lexical differences between endocentric (Germanic) and exocentric (Romance) languages. The paper follows the lexical typological assumption that endo and exocentric languages complementarily distribute semantic information on the two major word classes, nouns and verbs (e.g. Baron & Herslund 2005; Baron et...

Et kig på socialsemiotikken fra Dansk Sprognævn

Thomas Hestbæk Andersen
In this paper, I hint at some possible affinities between social semiotics as a descriptive practice of investigating language as well as a plethora of modalities in communication, and the normative work carried out by The Danish Language Council (Dansk Sprognævn). First, one could envisage how the social semiotic approach to multimodality could function in research on ‘domain loss’: this is research which traditionally focuses on the use of one language over another in specific...

Researchers as boundary spanners

Peter Wilgaard Larsen
For universities to accomplish their ‘third mission’, researchers are supposed to engage themselves in problem solving processes with external actors, but to successfully cross organizational boundaries between the universities and the outside world is easier said than done. Rather than developing new collaborative approaches in dealing with practitioners, this paper applies action research as a dual process of participation that elaborates the knowledge exchange process of boundary spanning. Two comparative case studies have been selected...

Editorial: Introduction to the Special Issue Based on Papers Submitted at the Business Model Conference 2020

Marco Montemari
The Covid-19 pandemic has caused many events around the world to be cancelled, including the Business Model Conference 2020. The Conference Chairs, the Scientific Committee, and the Conference Committee discussed the possibility of hosting an online conference but thought that meeting virtually would not have provided participants with the same sense of community feeling experienced in previous years, when the Business Model Conference brought together international academics and practitioners from a multitude of disciplines to...
