Consciousness, Culture, and Significance

Christoph Durt & Fakultat Fur Philosophie Und Bildungswissenschaft Institut Fur Philosophie
Christoph Durt offers a new view on the relation between consciousness and culture by investigating their intertwinement with significance. Against the widespread restriction of consciousness to phenomenal aspects and that of culture to “thick description,” Durt argues that consciousness discloses aspects of significance, whereas culture encompasses shared significance, as well as the forms of behavior that enact significance. Significance is intersubjective and constantly reinstantiated in new contexts of relevance rather than belonging to single individuals...

Medienwissenschaft - Eine politische Praxis?

Thomas Waitz & Film- Und Medienwissenschaft Institut Fur Theater-
Werbung hat im Rahmen von Medienwissenschaft nicht nur die Funktion der Illustration oder Plausibilisierung. Und sie dient auch nicht lediglich als Schlagwortgeberin. Vielmehr scheint es so, dass sich die Medienwissenschaft der Werbung zuwendet, weil in ihr ein kulturelles Wissen über Medien sichtbar wird.

Building Resilience: The Emergence of Refugee-Led Education Initiatives in Indonesia to Address Service Gaps Faced in Protracted Transit

Thomas Mitchell Brown
Following recent changes in Australian immigration policy, and in the context of an increasing global refugee crisis, more than 14,000 asylum seekers and refugees now live in protracted transit in Indonesia, spending years awaiting resettlement through the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees to a third country. Despite the increasing length of time refugees are spending in Indonesia, they live in a state of limbo, prohibited from working and having limited access to education. Although...

Thai Doctoral Students’ Layers of Identity Options Through Social Acculturation in Australia

Singhanat Nomnian
An increasing number of international students in Australian higher education have inevitably increased linguistic and cultural diversity in the academic and social landscapes. Drawing upon Bronfenbrenner’s (1979) bio-ecological systems theory and Pavlenko and Blackledge’s (2004) identities in multilingual contexts, this study explores how Thai doctoral students adopt certain identity options during their societal acculturation while studying and living in Australia. Based on a group of nine Thai doctoral students’ interview transcripts, the findings reveal three...

Typhoons, Climate Change, and Climate Injustice in the Philippines

William N. Holden
This article discusses how climate change causes an intensification of Western North Pacific typhoons and how the effects of such amplified typhoons upon the Philippines exemplify the concept of climate injustice. Using a political ecology approach, the article begins with an examination of the concepts of climate change, climate injustice, background injustice, and compound injustice. This is followed by an examination of the causes of typhoons, the vulnerability of the Philippines to typhoons, and how...

“Trust Me, I am the One Who Will Drain the Swamp”: An Interview With Walden Bello on Fascism in the Global South

Wolfram Schaffar
Since the election of Narendra Modi in India in 2014 and Donald Trump in the USA in 2016, political analysts and commentators around the globe have increasingly used the concept of fascism to capture the rise of new right-wing authoritarianism in various countries. Activists and academics in Europe are much more reluctant to use the word fascism, for several reasons. One reason is that – because of the alarming associations which fascism evokes in German...

Is Makassar a ‘Sanctuary City’? Migration Governance in Indonesia After the ‘Local Turn’

Antje Missbach, Yunizar Adiputera & Atin Prabandari
Taking into consideration three levels of government (regional, national, and sub-national) that potentially offer protection to refugees, this paper is concerned with changes initiated by the 2016 Presidential Regulation on Handling Foreign Refugees. This regulation has delegated more responsibility for managing refugees to the sub-national levels of administration in Indonesia, which, like other nations in the Southeast Asia, has been reluctant to provide protection for refugees or any options for their integration into society. The...

Women Remembering the Prophet’s Birthday: Maulid Celebrations and Religious Emotions Among the Alawiyin Community in Palembang, Indonesia

Claudia Seise
In Palembang in South Sumatra, Indonesia, Maulid celebrations are considered an important religious event in the lives of many Muslims. Over the past twenty years, there has been an expansion of activities, the driving force behind which has been a young generation of Alawiyin in Palembang. Maulid celebrations organized by the Alawiyinin Palembang are separated along gender lines. In this paper, I show how female-onlyMaulid celebrations enable Muslim women, and especially the sharifat, to express...

The Institutions of Authoritarian Neoliberalism in Malaysia: A Critical Review of the Development Agendas Under the Regimes of Mahathir, Abdullah, and Najib

Bonn Juego
After toppling the 61-year dominant Barisan Nasional through a historic election victory in May 2018, expectations are high for the new ruling government led by Mahathir Mohamad and the Pakatan Harapan to fulfil their promises for socio-economic reforms and regime change in Malaysia. But what have been the institutions of the prevailing regime that need to be reformed and changed? This article offers a critical review of the evolving development agendas since the 1990s of...

The darknet’s anonymity dilemma

Meropi Tzanetakis &
The darknet is not just a place for criminalised activities; it facilitates anonymous communication between all those adopting marginalised positions, including human rights activists, dissidents and whistleblowers. They show that our society must face the dilemma between freedom and control. My article seeks to do two things. First, I would like to explain what lies behind the term darknet. By sharpening our understanding of the term, I would like to help demystify the darknet. Second,...

National Human Rights Institutions, Extraterritorial Obligations and Hydropower in Southeast Asia: Implications of the Region’s Authoritarian Turn

Carl Middleton
This article examines the role of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and transnational civil society in pursing Extraterritorial Obligation (ETO) cases in Southeast Asia as a means to investigate human rights threatened by cross-border investment projects. Two large hydropower dams under construction in Laos submitted to NHRIs from Thailand and Malaysia, namely the Xayaburi Dam and Don Sahong Dam, are detailed as case studies. The article argues that the emergence of ETOs in Southeast Asia,...

Die Akzentuierung des Unscheinbaren

Raphaela Casata &
Mit dem ‚material turn’ wurde das Ende einer jahrelangen ‚Sachblindheit’ und ‚ Dingvergessenheit’ der Soziologie eingeleitet. Zwar erfahren seither insbesondere von Menschen gefertigte Artefakte eine verstärkte Zuwendung, diese bleibt allerdings oftmals an der Oberfläche. Die Stofflichkeit von Dingen und Stoffe als eigene Einheiten finden kaum Beachtung, wenngleich sich dies als ertragreich für das Verstehen sozialer Phänomene herausstellen kann. Einige wenige Stofflichkeit berücksichtigende Arbeiten zeigen, wann und wie sich die zumeist unscheinbare Komponente materialer Kultur bemerkbar...
