Europas innere Grenzen

Erich Landsteiner
The author reviews the main arguments of the Hungarian historian Jenö Szücs who traces two structural borderlines running through Europe by describing the existence of two distinct patterns of European social formation. In Western Europe the breakdown of the Roman Empire opened the path for the emergence of a new type of social and economic formation based on the gradual separation of a slowly developing ,civil society' and the state. In the Eastern European formation,...

Irrationale Motive und systemische Revolutionen im Zeitalter der Globalisierung

Gerhard Grössing
The discussions concerning socalled "Postmodernism" were marked by a - partly intended - misunderstanding concerning different concepts of the Ego: While some kept on problematising an objectified Ego in society and history, others were concentrating on the nature of a subjective Ego. The latter had necessarily posed itself as a pressing problem closely related to current trends of acceleration; accelerations caused by a conjunction of global monetary dynamics and scientific-technical revolutions. This has led to...

Ehre und Männlichkeit im kolonialen Spanisch-Amerika

Lyman L. Johnson
Guilds, cofradias and other formal and informal institutions that played a central role in the lives of manual workers in pre industrial societies have long been studied as economic and social arenas. These structures were also crucibles within which masculine identity was forged and the rough values of everyday masculine culture were enforced. Young men entered apprenticeships or more directly entered employment in less skilled occupations in their teens. Their work environments, housing and social...

Geschichte als Literatur - Literatur als Geschichte

Vladimir Biti
The debate was revived through the methodological problems created by the anti-Enlightenment turn historiography took in the late seventies with the emergence of such schools as the Italian microstoria, the English oral or case history and the German Geschichte von unten. The loose relativism of these schools threatened the traditional hierarchy, which prefers documents, deeds and protocols - because of their „transparency" - over the „intransparency" of literary texts. Hayden White as well as Dominick...

Womit die Wienerinnen und Wiener fahren

Georg Rigele
This contribution looks at public transport in Vienna since 1945, paying particular attention to the means of transport themselves: in other words, the author investigates that part of the transport system with which the user most frequently comes into contact, namely trams, busses, and underground trains. The Viennese public transport system includes one of the largest tram enterprises currently in existence. This does not result from a conscious decision to plan out public transport on...

Denk-Orte: ein Dorf reflektiert sein Gedächtnis

Bernhard Ecker, Ernst Langthaler & Martin Neubauer
The article summarizes the results of a research project on the social and cultural construction of collective memories in a village community in Lower Austria at the end of the 20th century. The fieldwork combines several methods in order to reconstruct the complex process of 'doing memory': the interprctation of narrative-biographical interviews with villagers; the publication of a commented selection of these life narratives on CD; the interpretation of a group discussion with a hetero-...

Radikale Innovationen und Forschungsorganisation: Eine Annäherung

J. Rogers Hollingsworth & Ellen Jane Hollingsworth
On the basis of broad empirical investigations the authors present a study of 28 institutions to which major discoveries in the bio-medical sciences can be ascribed in contrast with hundred institutions doing 'normal science'. Some factors turned out to be of major significance for the probability to come to a 'major break-through'. They include hybridity of the cognitive domains, 'integrated' or 'organic' structures within an institution, a high degree of horizontal communication structures among its...

Mythen und Rituale des ungarischen Systemwechsels

Éva Kovács
Starting from the analysis of a small political demonstration in a Hungarian village in 1989 the author develops a pattern for the interpretation of public political action in Hungary in the years immediately before and after the collapse of the Communist regime. She describes how the first public demonstrations organised by the opposition groups established a ritual for political protest by usurpating the monuments and the actual sites of the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 and...

The present book contains a collection of papers that resulted from a two-day workshop held in June 2018 at the Department of Classical Archaeology of the University Vienna. The workshop took place in the context of the pluriennial research project ‘Val di Pesa and Val Orme as a changing rural landscape: an integrated approach’ which was focused on the investigation of land-use and human activities in a well-defined micro-region in Inland Northern Etruria by applying...

Nationale Kultur und die Selbsterschaffung des Bürgertums

Gerald Sprengnagel
The article focuses on the inherent ambiguities and disparities in the development of nation, national culture and small town bourgeoisie, here demonstrated for the regional town of Prostějov in central Moravia. By analysing the library of the local Czech reading club between 1848 and 1862 the author shows, how the books and reading materials were received by the reading patriots and forged into a tool of interpretation and recreation of contemporary reality. A socio-critical analysis...

Geschlecht und Politik in der Freiheitlichen Partei Österreichs 1986 bis 2000

Gabriella Hauch
The author bases her gender specific analysis of ehe party politics of the Freiheitliche Partei Österreichs (FPÖ) and of the staging of the party's public appearances since the beginning of Jörg Haiders chairmanship in 1986 on two assumptions. She defines the FPÖ as a (national- or right-wing-) populist party and she focuses on situations of crisis as a common denominator in the development of populism and gender relations. Populist politics, just like gender relations, result...

Practicing Digital Archaeology at the Vienna Orme and Pesa Valley Project

Dominik Hagmann
Between the years 2015 and 2019, the Vienna Orme and Pesa Valley Project of the Department of Classical Archaeology at the University of Vienna had one of its focal points in practicing archaeological fieldwork and post-processing using selected tools of the multitude of computational methods and applications as providing a theoretical framework too for this approach. The aim was to fuse data-driven and digitally practiced archaeological methods with theory in ‘digital archaeology.’ Eventually, the multi-annual...

New Economies: Das Surplus der Kunst

Ursula Frohne
The configuration of value in the context of (post-)modern art is explored under the premises of an increasingly influential system of value-defining agents, consisting of galleries, museums, private collectors, artists, curators, critics, art journals, art historians, cultural managers and other instances responsible for the mediation of art and its cultural self-preservation. The article adresses significant shifts in the art market since the 1990s, particularly concerning the expanding dimensions of investments into art as a distinctive...
