Personale Identitätsbildung in der digitalen Mediengesellschaft : theoretisch-methodologische Annäherungen aus sozialpsychologischer und theologisch-ethischer Perspektive

Lars Schäfers
Medialisierung gilt als eine zentrale Entwicklung aktueller gesellschaftlicher Modernisierungsprozesse – sie ist ein gesamtgesellschaftliches Phänomen. In der Soziologie spricht man daher schon lange von einer Mediengesellschaft als einer den Einfluss der Medien konstitutiv mitberücksichtigenden gesellschaftstheoretischen Basistheorie. Die Herausbildung der persönlichen, individuellen Identität eines Menschen findet in einer solchen Gesellschaft zu einem großen Teil medieninduziert statt. Die Studie analysiert die wesentlichen Merkmale einer Mediengesellschaft als der hier verwendeten Rahmentheorie. In einem weiteren Schritt wird die Kategorie...

Abstraction through the Merger of Iconic Elements in Forming New Allographs: The Logogram 539

Sven Gronemeyer
One contributor to the calligraphic complexity of Classic Maya writing is the ability afforded by the script to create allographs. There are examples with multiple stages of extraction and simplification to create allographs. In order to create a unique graph, distinctive parts of the feline WAY icon are merged into the well-known allograph with its right half covered in jaguar fur, although both allographs represent the very same sign.

Shedding New Light on the Maya Stela from Hix Witz in Stuttgart

Christian M. Prager, Sven Gronemeyer & Elisabeth Wagner
A Maya stela with a hieroglyphic text and a portrayal of a Maya ruler that is now in the collections of the Linden Museum in Stuttgart, Germany (inventory no. M 30751), has received scant attention from scholars to date 1). This stela is the focus of current research by the authors as members of the project “Text Database and Dictionary of Classic Mayan”, who have been collaborating with Doris Kurella of the Linden Museum since...

Herkunftsbestimmung von Keramik aus der Siedlung Taganrog am unteren Don durch Neutronenaktivierungsanalyse

Sabine Huy, Hans Mommsen & Ortwin Dally
Auf Basis von makroskopisch gebildeten Fabrikatsgruppen wurden aus dem Fundmaterial der Siedlung von Taganrog (Russische Föderation) 203 Keramikfragmente für eine Herkunftsbestimmung mittels der Neutronenaktivierungsanalyse (NAA) ausgewählt. Die Ergebnisse erweiterten die Erkenntnisse von bereits bekannten Herkunftsgruppen. Insbesondere zu Produktionsregionen von archaisch ostgriechischen Transportamphoren erzielten die NAA aus Taganrog neue Resultate. Das Verfahren bezeugte auch die Güte der angewandten Methode zur makroskopischen Analyse der Keramikfunde.

Sea shells in the mountains and llamas on the coast: the economy of the Paracas Culture (800 to 200 BC) in Southern Peru

Christian Mader
The research presented in this volume reconstructs the economic system of the Paracas culture (800-200 BC) in southern Peru. In doing so, the main emphasis is on economic exchange at the western slope of the Andes, with the Late Paracas period (370-200 BC) in the Palpa valleys (Andean Transect) serving as a case study. For this archaeoeconomic approach, Jauranga (285 m.a.s.l.), Collanco (1.630 m.a.s.l.), and Cutamalla (3.300 m.a.s.l.) – where extensive excavations were conducted by...

Revisiting GNSS vertical velocity in the Eifel volcanic field

Makan Karegar & Jürgen Kusche
Recent evidence suggests that the Eifel Volcanic Fields (EVF) make measurable contributions to the surface deformation in GPS networks, but quantitative assessments of displacement time series and their impacts on long-term rates are lacking. The GPS sites in the EVF indicate anomalously slow uplift (up to 1 mm/yr) which stays at the limit of GPS sensitivity and noise level for monitoring crustal deformation in geophysical applications. Since the primary aim of existing geodetic GNSS networks...

JOM: A Possible Reading for the “Star War” Glyph?

Dimitrios Markianos-Daniolos
This research note is based on a chapter from my master’s thesis which discusses the possible readings of the Star War glyph. In that thesis, I attempt to provide the most up-to-date and complete examination of this sign. The insights gained from this investigation now allow us to draw new conclusions and re-evaluate our understanding of this enigmatic term. This article will discuss one of the new ideas that arose from this study, specifically a...

Tech-Giganten im Gesundheitswesen

Aileen Berghold, Constanze Hübner, Björn Schmitz-Luhn & Christiane Woopen
Globale Technologiekonzerne dringen immer stärker in den Gesundheitsbereich vor. Ihre Aktivitäten und Geschäftsfelder weisen eine enorme Bandbreite auf. Einige Unternehmen, vor allem in den USA und China, treten dabei selbst als Erbringer von Gesundheitsleistungen in Erscheinung. Dank ihrer Innovationskraft stellen diese „Tech-Giganten“ einerseits eine große Chance für die digitale Transformation von Gesundheitssystemen dar. Andererseits birgt die teils monopolartige Marktmacht der Digitalkonzerne erhebliche Risiken, etwa bei der Auswertung von Daten oder dem gleichberechtigten Zugang zu medizinischen...

Petrographic characterisation of the Algeciras Unit, Campo de Gibraltar Complex, S Spain

Heike Koch & Tom McCann
The layer-cake strata of the epeiric Anisian-Ladinian Muschelkalk are devoid of large-scale architectural elements, e. g. steep clinoforms of a progThe Cenozoic-age Algeciras Unit is a deep-marine unit cropping out between Algeciras and Tarifa and forms part of the Campo de Gibraltar Complex (Flysch Trough Units) of southern Spain. The Campo de Gibraltar Complex is situated along the contact between the internal and external zones of the Betic Cordillera. The various units range from Cretaceous...

Ein Autor und seine Region

Julia Burkhardt, Ulf Floßdorf & Anuschka Holste-Massoth
The Cistercian Caesarius of Heisterbach (ca. 1180–1240) is widely known for his Dialogus miraculorum. A similar collection of exempla by Caesarius is considerably less well-known: his Libri VIII miraculorum, the “Eight Miracle Books”. Both works are remarkable sources for 13th century religious and social history, and both mirror the region Caesarius lived and worked. In this article, we systematically analyze and compare persons, places and networks in order to reconstruct Caesarius’ narrative radius.

The impact of subsoil management on the delivery of ecosystem services

Sophie Ittner, Holger Gerdes, Miriam Athmann, Sara Luise Bauke, Martina Gocke, Julien Guigue, Sanjay Jaiswal, Timo Kautz, Oliver Schmittmann, Stefanie Schulz & Sabine Seidel
In recent years, the interest in subsoil has increased, since it can hold immense reservoirs of nutrients, organic matter and water. The subsoil can therefore provide important ecosystem services for the agricultural production system and beyond. This paper assesses the sustainability of two subsoil management measures with regard to the delivery of soil-related ecosystem services: a) the cultivation of deep-rooted pre-crops (biological approach) and b) stripwise mechanical subsoil loosening in combination with the incorporation of...

Postnatal growth rates of the dwarf hippo Phanourios minor from the Pleistocene of Cyprus

Anneke H. van Heteren & P. Martin Sander
Cyprus, in the Pleistocene, was extremely isolated from a geological and biogeographical point of view. Only two macromammals successfully colonised the island before the Holocene: Elephas cypriotes, approximately 1.4 metres tall at the withers, and Phanourios minor. The latter is the smallest dwarfed hippo ever found; it stood 70 centimetres at the withers and weighed an estimated 200 kilograms, approximately 10% of its mainland ancestor’s weight. The main objective of this study was to determine...

Diverse Cultures, Universal Capacity: An Interview with Markus Gabriel

Yue Li & Markus Gabriel
The documentary Philosophy in the Age of Desire records a short encounter between Markus Gabriel and Hiroshi Ishiguro’s Geminoid in 2018. Their exchange on the role of technology in human life, on the conception of human being, and other topics revealed noticeable differences between the German philosopher and the Japanese engineer, but can these be interpreted as “cultural” differences? Four years later two separate interviews follow up on their conversation, This interview explores their differences...

Petrography and geochemistry of the Middle–Upper Jurassic Banik section, northernmost Iraq – Implications for palaeoredox, evaporitic and diagenetic conditions

Nagham Omar, Tom McCann & Ali I. Al-Juboury
Lithological, petrographic, and geochemical analysis of the Middle to Upper Jurassic succession (i.e. Sargelu and Naokelekan formations) from northernmost Iraq were undertaken. The aim was to provide an updated discussion for their sedimentary and diagenetic histories, as well as examine the evaporation proxies and palaeoredox conditions under which the Sargelu and Naokelekan formations were deposited. Lithologically, the Sargelu Formation comprises massive dolomites, interbedded with shales, rare cherts and one single limestone bed, whilst the Naokelekan...

Llanos de Mojos, Bolivien. Die Wiederentdeckung des »Mound Velarde«. Die Arbeiten des Jahres 2019

Heiko Prümers & Carla Jaimes Betancourt
More than 100 years ago swedish ethnologist Erland Nordenskiöld pioneered in the archaeology of the bolivian amazon lowlands. At Mound Velarde, a prehispanic settlement located on the land of the Estancia San Miguelito, he made the first stratigraphic observations in Bolivia. A detailed report of his work was published in 1913 leaving one thing open: the exact location of the site. In October 2019, surveys carried out in the region using LIDAR (Light detection and...

A Possible Mention of the “Xukalnaah” Emblem Title on Altar de los Reyes, Altar 3

Wagner Elisabeth
During the 2002 season of the long-term archaeological survey of southern Campeche led by Ivan Šprajc a fragmented circular monument was discovered. Its inscription records a long list of emblem glyphs, after which its site of discovery, formerly named after the ejido Zapote Bobal in which it is located, was aptly renamed as “Altar de los Reyes”. The monument itself was designated as Altar de los Reyes, Altar 3. The altar was found badly shattered...

A Fresh Breeze in the Palace: The Courtly Function of the Yok Waal

Sven Gronemeyer
The present note is about a very rare lexeme in the epigraphic record: waal ‘fan’. Among the handful of examples, a unique context on the polychrome ceramic vessel K2914, the famous Denver Art Museum vase, allows identification of a hitherto unrecognized courtly function: yok waal as the ‘fan-bearer’ or ‘fan-wielder’.
