This volume provides an original perspective on mobile communication, focusing on the emerging deployment of images in mobile phone usage: photography, video, mobile television, mobile internet, etc. Deeply embedded in our audiovisual culture, images possess the undeniable power to reshape the future of the mobile phone as an “individual mass medium”. In this collection, European researchers in media and communication studies, sociology, anthropology and political science present empirical and conceptual work on a wide range of issues, including cultural change, new forms of sociability on individual and societal levels, tactics and strategies of users and producers, and finally, representations and imaginaries of the mobile phone in other established media. This book is written for researchers and students of sociology, communication studies and cultural studies as well as for practitioners of interactive media and online communication.

We live in a digital Media Society, in which pictures are becoming more and more important. So, human communication is increasingly becoming a visual communication. That is not a new finding. But the new question is: What does this development mean for the law? Up to now the law is the part of the society which is most sceptical towards images. Law has still resisted the visual temptation. This will not last for ever. The rush of pictures in everyday life and in every part of the society is much too strong - and it is even getting stronger. The invasion of images will change the character of modern law deeply. Modern law will become a Pictorial Law.What are the chances and the risks of Pictorial Law and visual law communication? This is the topic of the book.

*Weitere Angaben Inhalt: Boltanskis Werk und sein Umgang mit dem Holocaust stellt eine Herausforderung auch an Disziplinen jenseits der Kunstwissenschaft dar. Christian Boltanski gehört zu den international renommiertesten Gegenwartskünstlern. Sein künstlerischer Umgang insbesondere mit der Erinnerung an den Holocaust hat diesen Ruf weit über die Kunstwelt hinaus begründet. In einer geisteswissenschaftlichen Forschungssituation, in der Erinnerungskulturen und Phänomene des kulturellen Gedächtnisses im Zentrum des Interesses stehen, sind seine Beiträge eine Herausforderung auch für Disziplinen jenseits der Kunstwissenschaft. Das Max-Planck-Institut für Geschichte in Göttingen hat Christian Boltanski eingeladen, um an seinem Werk Leistungen und Grenzen künstlerischer Arbeit am kulturellen Gedächtnis auszuloten - im Vergleich zur wissenschaftlichen Arbeit an diesem Gedächtnis. Christian Boltanski hat eine Arbeit beigetragen, die hier erstmals publiziert wird. Sie bedient sich einzelner Blätter aus der Zeitschrift Signal, die von 1940 bis 1945 von der deutschen Wehrmacht produziert und nur im Ausland verkauft wurde. Das seinerzeit unter (bild-)journalistischen Gesichtspunkten bahnbrechende Produkt wurde allein in den ersten drei Jahren in mehr als hundert Millionen Exemplaren und bis zu zwanzig Sprachen im Ausland verkauft. Boltanski hat aus zwanzig Heften des Signal jeweils einen farbigen Doppelaufschlag herausgenommen. Das Zusammentreffen der auf der linken und der rechten Seite des Blattes gedruckten Bilder ist zwar rein drucktechnisch bedingt, aber doch zugleich die Botschaft der Zeitung: Stets stehen >überlegene Wehrtechnik und überlegene

Literary mimesis is an age-old concept which has been variously interpreted and at times highly contested, and which has recently been brought back to the forefront of scholarly interest. The debate around mimesis has been reactivated by approaches that re-evaluate its meaning both in the ancient texts in which it first appeared, and in the contemporary discussions of the power of literary representation. This volume presents a selection of central contributions to both the theoretical debate on mimesis and to its up-to-date critical practice. This volume approaches mimesis by emphasising the principles of knowledge, understanding and imagination that have been associated with mimesis since Aristotle’s Poetics. The articles consider the various aspects of the concept throughout history, and explore the ways in which literature produces its peculiar reality effects and negotiates its relationship to value systems connecting it to the world of everyday experience and ethics, as well as to different ideologies, emotions, world views and fields of knowledge. Building on this rich theoretical background, the articles examine the limits and possibilities of mimesis through detailed textual analyses that present acute challenges to our current understanding of literary representation.

In the European discourse of post 9/11 reality, concepts such as a oeMulticulturalisma, a oeIntegrationa and a oeEuropean Islama are becoming more and more topical. The empirically- based contributions in this volume aim to reflect the variety of current Muslim social practices and life-worlds in Germany. The volume goes beyond the fragmented methods of minority case studies and the monolithic view of Muslims as portrayed by mass media to present fresh theoretical approaches and in-depth analyses of a rich mosaic of communities, cultures and social practices. Issues of politics, religion, society, economics, media, art, literature, law and gender are addressed. The result is a vibrant state-of-the-art publication of studies of real-life communities and individuals.
