Second Annual IHCMD Online Summer School: "Sustaining Human Existence in Changing Conditions, Mental Existence and Conceptual and Mental Development: Setting the Conceptual and Mental Conditions Beyond Religion, Philosophy and Science"

Anmerkungen: The focus and concentration of the Program are persisting and growing human individual, social and environmental conditions, problems and challenges we face today, as individuals, as societies and as a species globally. -
The Program is not an electronic discussion list for open debate of the issues. It is a study program delivered over the Internet through a moderated mailing List.
The Program consists of the presentation, consideration and discussion of a set of nine interrelated discussion papers. It is an introduction to the fundamentals. A four-month Summer Program does not provide sufficient time for a detailed discussion of the specifics of the issues.
The Program is free of charge, though registration will be limited to 50 participants.
The Program is based on a long term and ongoing study, Sustaining Human Existence and Human Conceptual and Mental Development (SHEHCMD) Study, of the Institute for Human Conceptual and Mental Development (IHCMD).

"The Demarcation Socialised: Or, How Can We Recognise Science When We See It?"

The Sociology of Scientific Knowledge and other 'post-modern' movements have blurred the boundaries between science and other activities but we still talk about science. So what do we mean by it? What can replace the old debate about 'demarcation criteria?' Should it be replaced and what will demarcation look like if it has to be socialised? What is special about science and technology, their types and sub-divisions, as social activities rather than epistemologically distinct activities?

co-sponsored by: IEEE Society for Social Implications of Technology (SSIT); Department of Electronic Engineering, "La Sapienza" University of Rome, Italy, Associazione Elettrotecnica ed Elettronica Italiana (AEI)
Technology is expanding at an unprecedented  rate and influence on society reaches every aspect of the life of individuals and groups. However, human needs do not influence the development of technology, as people working in frontier areas of technological research become even more specialized. Focussing their own interest on restricted technical areas, research people are led to loose a global view of the motivations and effects of their accomplishments. University, that by vocation is committed to look at human life and knowledge in a unified perspectives, can strongly contribute to fill the gap between technology and society.

ISA Research Committe Sociology of Professional Groups (RC 52) Interim Conference: "State Political Power and Professional Structures: New Patterns and New Challenges?"

In contemporary societies what kinds of balance exist between professional power and political power segregated by the state? How do these two kinds of power relate to each other and in what ways for different professions and occupations? Which professions and occupations have modified their structural position in the professional system and what have been the consequences of this modification in relation to the state? In different nation-states,  how are global determinants converted into professional regulation at the state level?
In order to analyse such changes it might be important to re-visit and re-evaluate some of the theories and concepts which have been developed in the last decades in the sociology of professions. These include deprofessionalization or proletarianization, market closure, state capture, jurisdictional competition. Alternatively, it might be necessary to develop new concepts to explain professions in the modern world.

Internet Research 1.0: "The State of the Interdiscipline": First Annual Conference of the Association of Internet Researchers

The growth of the Internet is one of the greatest cultural phenomena of our time, impacting almost all areas of life. It is crucial to build knowledge about the Internet's socio-cultural dimensions. Despite great interest, knowledge-building in Internet research is hindered by a lack of international, centralized opportunities for scholars from different disciplines to interact.
This international conference will focus on the Internet as a distinct interdisciplinary field for research. It will bring together prominent scholars, researchers, and students from multiple disciplines for keynote addresses, paper presentations, formal and informal discussions.
Deadline: The deadline for submissions of paper/session proposals is 15 March 2000. Submissions of between 150 and 250 words on all topics that address any social, cultural, political, economic, or aesthetic aspects of the internet. We welcome submissions from any discipline.
All proposals should be submitted electronically at:

ISA RC14 (Communication, Knowledge and Culture) International Conference: "2001 Bugs. Globalism and Pluralism"

Much has been said, and a lot of people have worried about the year 2000's bug. Two boxes instead of four to mark the date! A technical choice, with major potential consequences, resulting from a short-term thinking, running after short-term savings. It will have cost millions to put things in order.
Notwithstanding the media hype, and the fears more or less justified that it has raised, the year 2000's bug was a technical problem quite simple to solve. But the development of information and communication technologies (ICTs) carries more complex challenges.
The organizers of the 2001 bugs conference would like to highlight other problems (human, social, cultural, political and economic) that are facing societies where ICTs are widespread and play a major role. What will be the bugs in the years to come in these societies that are frequently called information societies, programmed societies or knowledge societies ? An invitation to leave the ground of too simple short-term calculation to confront a social universe which includes possibilities to identify and bring to reality as well as problems to pinpoint and solve. In short, the challenge is to think pervasive communication in all its complexity in the perspective of its long-term implications.
Deadline: 1. Mai 2000. Papers will be accepted either in English, French or Spanish.

International Conference: "Norbert Elias and Social Anthropology"

French Society of Ethnology and University of Metz (France)
Anmerkungen: The work of Norbert Elias has attracted the attention of historians, political scientists and sociologists. At a time of renewed interest in Elias's work, we would like to examine how his 'cross-disciplinary' thought illuminates the anthropological approach. The conference will focus on two main topics:
What is the place of anthropology in Elias's work? His work refers explicitly to classics like Radcliffe-Brown, Mead, Evans-Pritchard and Levi-Strauss. He lived in Africa, where he confronted the cultural 'Other'. This experience led him to reconsider European culture and more broadly the epistemological position of self-distanciation.
How can Elias's works enrich anthropology? Apart from occasional references to Elias in recent anthropological writing, there has been no systematic attempt to incorporate his perspective into the various fields to which it is obviously relevant. These might include: uses of the body, everyday life, organisation of public and private space, etc; concepts such as habitus, process, interiorisation, etc; and the definition of 'culture'.

"Gute Gesellschaft": Veranstaltung der Sektion 'Kultursoziologie' auf dem 30. Kongress der DGS

Anmerkungen: Eine Fortsetzungstagung wird für Frühjahr 2001 vorbereitet. -
"Gute Gesellschaft" war auch eine Maxime bürgerlicher Kultur, die sich vom trivialen und vulgären Geschmack der Popularkultur abheben wollte. Zugleich haben anti-bürgerliche Avantgarden das juste-Milieu bürgerlicher Kultur als philisterhaften und geistverlassenen Traditionalismus angegriffen. Schliesslich ist mit dem Aufstieg der Massenkultur fraglich geworden, inwieweit Prozesse der Entbürgerlichung oder der Verbürgerlichung, der Neubildung oder des Tods der Avantgarde, der Vulgarisierung oder der Bildungsverbreiterung diagnostiziert werden können. Eine theoretisch-konzeptionelle Neufassung dieser Thematik, die die historische Dimension einbezieht, ist neben der bekannten Fokussierung auf die neüren und neüsten Medien in der Soziologie ein wichtiges Forschungsdesiderat. Auf der Sektionsveranstaltung soll ein Einstieg in diese Thematik erfolgen. Wir wollen damit beginnen, die Erforschung der bürgerlichen Kultur und ihrer anti-bürgerlichen Avantgardismen mit den Bemühungen in Cultural Studies und Medienforschung in einen längerfristigen Arbeitszusammenhang zu bringen.

"Perspectives on Computer Modeling and Simulation"

Session innerhalb der 4S/EASST Conference 2000 (vgl. die voraufgehende Eintragung!)
Anmerkungen: There has been in the last two decades a tremendous rise in the use of computer simulation, mathematical modeling and other computer-based procedures for solving scientific and technical problems in industry, government, scientific research and education. The particular problem solving potential of computer-based procedures is partly due to the fact that these procedures sit at the interface between different domains of research and/or application among which they establish a connection and mediation.
Science and technology studies have only recently begun to address these developments. Most of these studies either focus on computer models and simulation as tools and objects of scientific knowledge (e.g. within physical and biological research). Or they analyze models and simulation as devices which facilitate boundary-crossing between science/technology and 'the public' (e.g. debate on climate change). In the proposed session we would like to present different STS approaches to the analysis of computer modeling and simulation. In particular, we would like to bring together STS scholars who investigate modeling practices in both types of settings mentioned above. What can we learn from confronting the results of such studies?
Deadline: 5. Jan. 2000; title of the paper and a preliminary abstract (some words will do for the time being)

"Transatlantic Studies: New Perspectives" An Interdisciplinary Conference

Tagungsort: Maastricht Center for Transatlantic Studies
Anmerkungen: The transatlantic relationship has been one of the most dynamic of modern times. Since the Age of Exploration, transatlantic encounters have determined the course of history, culture and politics for millions of people. The destinies of Europe, Africa, North and South America have been intertwined to the extent that none of these areas can be said to exist in isolation.
The conference aims to engage with the unique interactive relationship between peoples and cultures on both sides of the Atlantic, and to explore the common issues and concerns that necessarily move us beyond disciplinary and monocultural perspectives. We invite contributions from scholars working in any discipline, or indeed across disciplines. The primary requirment is that any paper will place the dynamics of the transatlantic relationship at its centre.

ISA Research Committee on Biography and Society Conference: "Biographical Methods and Professional Practice"

Tagungsort: Tavistock Centre, London
Anmerkungen: The conference explores the usefulness of biographical methods both in generating new forms of social practice and in gaining new insights into  institutional processes. The field of social interventions includes health and social care, education and training, arts work, work with families and young people, community regeneration work etc.
The conference highlights an increasing fluidity and interaction between theory, methods and practice, and focuses on interrelationships between recent developments in social theory and biographical work. Such developments include sociology of the body, time and place, life transitions, agency and structure, feminist research, memory and remembering, difference, the life course, reflection and representation. It will also seek to clarify boundaries and overlaps between oral and life history work, narrative studies and discourse approaches, and biographical interpretive methods. We hope that papers will address and interweave these issues.

"Race, Ethnicity, and Migration: The US in a Global Context"

Conference to be held at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus. Cosponsored by the REM Seminar and the Immigration & Ethnic History Society.
Anmerkungen: In the United States, questions of race, ethnicity, and changing demographics have long been at the heart of political and academic discourse concerning the past, present, and future of American society. In the last twenty years, these topics have also become fixed features of intellectual and policy debates in many other countries. The Race, Ethnicity, and Migration Conference intends to bring together scholars who work on the United States and other parts of the world for comparative and interdisciplinary discussions on race, ethnicity, and migration in communities, past and present. The conference seeks to address the urgent need for a more comprehensive and transnational research agenda.

"Transfer von Modellen zwischen Wissenschaftsgebieten": Jahrestagung der GWTF

Gesellschaft für Wissenschafts- und Technikforschung e.V. (GWTF), in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Interdisziplinären Institut für Wissenschaftstheorie und Wissenschaftsgeschichte der Universität Erlangen
Tagungsort: voraussichtlich im Unicum, Carl-Thiersch-Str. 9, 91052 Erlangen
Anmerkungen: Die Übertragung von Modellen ist heute eine in allen Wissenschaftsgebieten akzeptierte Problemlösungsstrategie. Wir beobachten, daß Modelle, die in einem Wissenschaftsgebiet bereits etabliert sind, mehr oder weniger plötzlich in einem anderen Wissenschaftsgebiet auftauchen, allerdings dann ihres ursprünglichen Kontextes entkleidet und mit einem neuen Kontext versehen. Bekannte Beispiele für diese Strategien sind die Bionik und neuerdings die Sozionik, die Modelle aus der Biologie bzw. Soziologie auf die Bearbeitung technikwissenschaftlicher Probleme anwenden.
Auf unserer Tagung soll es um folgende Fragen gehen: Unter welchen Bedingungen kommt es zu Modelltransfers? - Sind Modelltransfers tatsächlich nützlich, oder handelt es sich nicht häufig um den Versuch, Originalität zu demonstrieren, ohne daß tatsächlich neue Problemlösungen möglich werden? Auf welchen Wegen werden Modelle übertragen, und wie erfolgreich sind diese Wege? Welches Verhältnis entwickeln die 'Spender-Gebiete' zur externen Verwendung 'ihrer' Modelle? - - Um diese unterschiedlichen Perspektiven zu erschließen, sollen auf der Tagung Modelltransfers aus möglichst vielen Gebieten behandelt werden. Neben Analysen aus der Wissenschafts- und Technikforschung wünschen wir uns auch Beiträge von Natur- und Technikwissenschaftlern sowie Ingenieuren, die Funktionen und Probleme des Modelltransfers in ihren Disziplinen diskutieren.

"Die Kulturalisierung des Kulturbegriffes: Politische Kulturforschung in der Bundesrepublik nach dem 'cultural turn'"

Veranstaltet vom Arbeitskreis Politik und Kulturforschung in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Teilprojekt "Stile des Lebens" des Kulturwissenschaftlichen Forschungskollegs "Norm und Symbol" (SFB 485)
Anmerkungen: In der Analyse politischer Kulturen ist in den letzten Jahren ein "cultural turn" zu verzeichnen. Gemeint ist damit die Rezeption kulturalistischer (Gesellschafts-) Theorien, die kollektiven Bedeutungen, zeichenhaften Ordnungen und symbolischen Strukturen eine konstitutive Rolle für "das Politische" zumessen. Politische Kultur erscheint hier nicht als blosser Teilaspekt des Politischen, sondern rückt in das Zentrum des Interesses - Politik ist in diesem Sinne immer schon kulturell konstituiert.
Gebeten wird um Beiträge, in denen die materielle Analyse und Fragen der theoretischen Konzeption politischer Kultur vor dem Hintergrund des "cultural turn" im Mittelpunkt stehen. Der Workshop wendet sich primär an Nachwuchswissenschaftler.

"Discourses of Social Exclusion"

Session at Royal Geographical Society / Institute of British Geographers Annual Conference 2001, University of Plymouth
Anmerkungen: This session aims to critically examine ideas of social exclusion circulating within policy, media, academic and popular debates. It seeks to provide critical analyses of the discourses of social exclusion emergent in recent years and to read social exclusion as a rhetorical device, a way of labeling people and place and as justifying policy and government intervention in the urban realm. The session would hope to attract academics from a range of disciplines including geography, sociology, politics, policy studies, media studies, linguistics and cultural studies.

"Nacktheit: Ästhetische Inszenierungen in historisch kulturvergleichender Perspektive"

im Rahmen des Graduiertenkollegs "Körper-Inszenierungen" der FU Berlin.
Anmerkungen: Seit der Vertreibung aus dem Paradies ist der Mensch ständig dabei, sich an- und auszukleiden. Mit der Bewusstwerdung der Nacktheit, so der biblische Mythos, begann die Geschichte der Menschheit. Die Kleidung ist dabei zur zweiten Haut geworden, unter der sich die Nacktheit verbirgt bzw. an deren Rändern sie sich zeigt. Das Verborgene und das Sichtbare sind damit wie das Verhüllte und das Enthüllte komplementär aufeinander bezogen. Die dichotomische Gegenüberstellung von Natur und Kultur lässt sich allerdings nicht in eine einfache Analogie zu Nacktheit und Kleidung bringen. Gerade die Art des Umgangs mit der eigenen oder auch der fremden Nacktheit ist hochgradig kulturbedingt. Deshalb sollen verschiedenste Aspekte der Nacktheit im Kultur- und Medienvergleich in historischer Perspektive diskutiert werden. Dabei soll es allerdings nicht primär um die soziologische Frage gehen, wie in Abhängigkeit von Geschlecht, Schicht und Alter jeweils konkret mit Nacktheit umgegangen wird, sondern vielmehr um die ästhetische bzw. kulturwissenschaftliche Frage, mit welchen narrativen, szenischen und ikonographischen Strategien Nacktheit jeweils inszeniert wird. Des weiteren ist zu fragen, welchen semiotischen Stellenwert Nacktheit und Scham, Intimität und Obszönität, Erotik und Sexualität in den verschiedenen Inszenierungen und mentalitätsgeschichtlichen Kontexten haben.

"Mensch & Computer 2001": 1. Fachübergreifende Konferenz

Veranstalter: Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI), Fachausschuß "Mensch-Computer-Interaktion", und German Chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
Anmerkungen: Die Ausbreitung der Informationstechnik in alle Lebensbereiche macht praktisch alle Menschen auf unterschiedliche Weise zu Benutzern von Computern. Wurde die Frage der Benutzbarkeit bisher primär für Computer am Arbeitsplatz gestellt, so stellt sich jetzt kurz vor Beginn des neuen Jahrhunderts die Frage viel breiter. Die Frage der Benutzbarkeit wird eine zentrale Frage in einer sich entwickelnden Informationsgesellschaft. Entsprechend soll mit dieser ersten fachübergreifenden Konferenz eine Tradition begründet werden.

"Coming to Terms with the Past in West Germany: The 1960s": An International Conference

Organized by the German Historical Institute, Washington, D.C. (GHI) and the University of Nebraska, Lincoln (UNL)

Anmerkungen: Since the end of World War II each generation of Germans has been confronted by the challenge of working through the implications of the Nazi regime and the Holocaust. ... Heretofore, scholarly attention has focused on the 1950s, the decade in which the two postwar German states were established and consolidated. The next frontier is the tumultuous 1960s, which are usually considered a crucial turning point in postwar history. West German youth rebelled against a culture that many believed had become excessively materialistic; they criticized the politics of West German realignment with the West and looked critically at their own nation's past and present, pointing to the many continuities that persisted from the Nazi era. These included authoritarianism (not least in the institutions of higher education, in the police forces, and in the legal system), xenophobia, technocracy, and patriarchy. Purging society of these legacies became an urgent priority of the West German New Left.
Deadline: Papers can be submitted in either English or German; they should be sent to Philipp Gassert.. Proposals must be postmarked no later than March 1, 2000.

"Art and Aesthetics in Management and Organization Studies": The Second International Critical Management Studies Conference

Anmerkungen: In recent years, there has been an increasing reference to the relevance of art and aesthetics in the practice and study of organizations and their management, with much of this work having been championed by critical theorists and postmodernists. Some of these theorists, for example, suggest we should look to art and the realm of the aesthetic as a learning device or heuristic and, indeed, have invoked language and metaphors that come from these realms. Others have pointed out the parallels between postmodernist approaches in the organizational discourse and that of the surrealists. Some writers are now suggesting that the theories that underpin management practice should be judged, not just on coherence, and by traditional scientific standards of rationality, but also by their aesthetic qualities.
Deadline: Send one copy of your abstract (approx. 500 words), preferably by e-mail, to each of the following addresses, by no later than September 30th 2000.
