Abstract English
In order to challenge the widespread identification of political inter-, trans-, and supranationalization with the disappearance of boundaries, the following heuristic reflections will concentrate on a few selected phe-nomena and changes of boundaries under conditions of increasing and intensified cross-border politics. While concentrating on boundaries that are constitutive with regard to state theory, the focus lies on par-ticular modes of appearance of these boundaries in times of intensified inter-, trans-, and supranational relations. In doing so, boundaries will be understood as social and political phenomena, while at the same time taking their epistemic significance into account. It should be considered if we are really dealing with the dissolving of traditional boundaries in cross-border politics or rather with the volatility of boundaries, i.e. with flexible boundary lines, whereas the boundary’s political and epistemic quality and function are not necessarily modified or weakened.

Abstract English
The following article is based on a lecture held at the ESA Conference ‘Innovating Qualitative Research: Challenges and Opportunities’ in Bayreuth on September the 22th 2010. Opening with the relevance of the logbook for social research alongside the example of the ‘My Campus’ project, methodic and methodological insights in the use of logbooks are presented. Operating with paper pencil logbook to observe students’ pat-terns of spatial use, the advantages and disadvantages of the logbook as a research instrument and the dif-ferences towards electronic logbooks are illustrated here. Further it is taken a closer look on aspects regarding the researcher as well as the user of this instrument to close with an outlook on its further development in social research.

In this topic, we want to investigate relevant aspects of a lead metaphor of recent times, namely the network, or shorter, The Net. It became a matter of Zeitgeist in recent years to be “connected” as a central mode not only of existence but of defining ones’ Self, and to be a good networker and part of networks evolved into a kind of myth and at the same time, into a social necessity. What it’s all about with that? What it actually means for a human condition to live in a mode of permanent connectedness, not only with regard to new forms of sociality emerging but moreover, for our very conception of ‘the world’, and first and foremost, what we conceive as the world of relevance? Became a situation of not being connected identical with being irrelevant?
Besides human conditionings, the matter of space and of the spatial in general gains new attention. Modernity, we heard, is associated with a loss of space, and with the creation of various “non-spaces” assigned to it (to cite Augé). But what’s about space, in particular social space, when everything is connected? Are there new forms of spatiality coming up, alongside with new forms of the social? Next to questions about their evolution, the one about the old spaces arises, those spaces which made up (before The Net) our relevant world, and hence, our very self-understanding. What happened with them? In which ways they are becoming transformed today, into so-called hybrid spaces, and what this again means for our basic conceptions of our selves and the others?
These are some of the questions and perspectives to be addressed in this topic:

  • Hyper spaces and hyped spaces: Is there other life than hybrid?
  • Private spaces – yesterday’s privilege?
  • Can networks be social?
  • Communicated spaces: Has there been a pictorial turn?
  • Communicating spaces: virtuality takes command?
  • How spatial is the digital world?

Abstract English
The contemporary epoch of a knowledge society requires a new approach to understanding knowledge, which is different from what was basic during the modern era up to now. The foundation of knowledge can no longer be understood by assuming its ultimate origin in a rational subject. The implications of the new approach to knowledge have fundamental impact on ethics in the knowledge society.

Abstract English
In present pluralistic society consumptive sociality is one possibility of ‘re-embedding’ for individualised people. An as reciprocal assumed awareness of belonging arises from specific competencies and collective practices of consumption. The branded product is the connective element as it is realised as an emblem, icon and a symbol of sense. By that, products are a culture building force.

Abstract English
Our history is infused with human movement – a phenomenon that has given rise to an imperative relationship between the subject, the environment, and the journeys that unfold while moving. Passing through space is therefore one of the oldest and most practiced forms of human movement. One of our great challenges, however, is the communication and documentation of that experience. This article explores the unfolding of place through the act of mapping by employing storytelling as a means of recording our movements.

Abstract English
Similar to the warehouse in the 19th century the so called “consuming city” receives a building boom since the end of the 20th century. But its urban character is only virtual, because there are neither public or municipal buildings nor appartments. No one lives in this city, and every evening it is hermeticly closed until the morning. The design of every house is based on an expressive façade, influenced by  historicism, and an indifferent building volume. This specific forming derives from Robert Venturi’s concept of a “decorated shed”, explained in his publication “Learning from Las Vegas” of 1972. The  ability of postmodern architecture to communicate with the recipient was the reason to elect this architectural language. Finally the visitor of this city shall primary be encouraged to consume. Therefore the  contemporary consuming city is an example of the continuity of postmodern architecture at the millennium, closely combined with the current idea of urban virtuality.

Abstract English
The history of human communities in terms of their “border regime” can be considered tripartite. At first, societies saw themselves as unique, and their edges were the end of their world, surrounded by “barbarians”. Under the influence of ever-increasing trade and equalisation of human beings and populations on either side of the edges, the latter have been transformed into national boundaries. This second era is currently in transition to a third epoch, as the continuous globalisation of societies is going along with their atomisation and liquefaction.
As entrepreneurs of ourselves, we are more and more supposed to manage our solitary existence ourselves. Law, clock and money are a tempting basis for this, because they do not prescribe nor prohibit any activity, but simply – and all the more relentlessly – establish a framework for individual action. Their limits progressively supplement collective delineations of human life (birth and residence, gender, religion, profession, etc.).

Abstract English
The consideration of the history of the Third Reich from an approach concerning waste industry dues not only touch aspects of National Socialist economic policy, but also essential elements of social policy. Besides government agencies, representatives from economy and sciences, also the general public is concerned with waste management, and thus mainly with the transformation of formerly unused waste products into exploitable raw resources. In the following, it is attempted to deserche the areas of the waste industry (collection, handling/transport, sorting, reutilisation, treatment, accumulation) in the context of general National Socialist structures. The main focus is on a selection of material flows in the light of the extraction of secondary raw resources. Finally, it is also examined to which extent the system of National Socialist waste management resulted from a systemically conditioned necessity, whether it was due to the specific circumstances of the time, or if its peculiarity can be considered as a characteristic of totalitarian political systems.

The essay gives a detailed and selective overview over the discussion of transhumanism and posthumanism, taking account of the most influential authors’ impact on the movement. Their most important texts are bound to mark the scientific development of posthumanistic and transhumanistic concepts. Examples taken from literature, film and artistic performance show their impact in public, being both enriched by the scien-tific approach and guiding also the latter.

Abstract English
The public has received substantial interpretation pursuant to its function as counterpart to the political development. Following the speaker’s projection, the parliament and the public sphere form an alliance. Literature has been understood all the time as its mediation and realization alike. What remains open, is the very question how the “focus of the public” (Ch.Taylor) is created and to be maintained. In four steps it is explained according to the primary hypothesis that human consciousness relies upon a polar foundation. The first introduces both parts of literary consciousness, the individual and the collective, in relation to truth capability. The second exhibits in an empirical sense the intricacies of polar consciousness as related to varieties of manifestation and peripeteian emphasis. The third relies upon poetological theory in order to explain how collective consciousness and the text are interconnected. Finally the fourth takes novel theory and interpretation (N.Miller) as point of departure for final application and overall summary.

Abstract English
Nowadays technical devices are used for communication between humans. Communicating by using tech-nical devices effects the way people are co-existing. Does that convey the experience of community, does it maybe lead us to new forms of communities? Or as we rely on technology and the opportunities offered thereby, do we lose the possibility to find people sharing our lives? The article offers the chance to find points of reference framing these essential questions.

In this topic, intensifying the one of a Posthuman Age, we want to investigate new forms of the social which emerged since the onset of a so-called Internet age, and unfold in the present. Since the onset of that age, our basic understanding of what it means to be social has changed profoundly. To cite McLuhan, being a cultural animal first and foremost means to be a social one. And since the onset of that age, not just some new forms of communicating had evolved, but new ones of being social as such. Since that starting point, in both real and mythical terms a new era begun.
The world was divided into two, an old world of the physical now called the analogous world and a new one called the digital world, in two distinct but nevertheless connected kinds of spatiality. In the sphere of the digital world, new ways of being social took shape which soon adopted new forms of being social at all, supplementing and even superseding the prevalent form up to now: the sociality inside the terms of an analogous world. These new forms cover a broad range of appearances, from Social Media to the attempts to create a Second Life of virtuality, down to recent ventures to generate a Web 3.0, opening the path to a “postdigital” age to arrive even. There were (and are) mythical hopes of new individual freedoms, of liquid democracies, of a new Ikaria allowing everybody to participate and to unfold. The old idea of social life that was tight to the old analogous world, the one of a finally urban civitas as a communitas of citizens, it became fragmented and particulated into manifold interchanging new forms of the most diverse communities.
But also inside the old world, new forms of social life have emerged and still spread out, first of all inside the central space of the old civitas, the urban context. Favelas as “informal” cities are inhabited by an approximated number of two billion people. At the same time, gated communities and consumer cities as very special forms of sociality are emerging like mushrooms. The old urban context gave way to the phenomena of a splintering urbanism, to a global system of nodes and lines connecting decision hierarchies and flows of goods, people, financial transactions, and information. Parallel to that, so-called logistic landscapes were emerging, leading to the aesthetic graveyards of the urban periphery we all know: highways, logistic centers, even mobile container cities as the dernier cri of contemporaneous architecture. Some call these tendencies the death of the city, man the cultural animal’s former prime space to live; some conceive it as a new world: the world as network, combining the analogous and the digital hemisphere of human belongings.
In any case, it gave rise to manifold forms of being a social animal, and at the same time, it is triggered by a formatted economic context. A context that begun to emerge in the same period as the Internet age did which is closely linked to it. The old analogous world as well as the digital one became privatized, too in that terms’ literal meaning. Referring to the old discussion about a conditio humana, the basic human condition, it seems that our existing understanding of this very condition has to be reassessed.

Abstract English
The age of industrial modernity is facing an existential crisis. The basis of its existence is threatened. Industrial production, based on the principle of division of labour, mass consumption and a structurally vital economic growth have passed the carrying capacity of the global ecosystem. The path to sustainability or sustainable growth is strived for. But to realise this under real social relations is extremely difficult. Strategies of efficiency, consistency and sufficiency are propagated. Science talk of this question is based on theoretical concepts only. In this discussion there is a shortage in historical knowledge. Nevertheless, history of technology can show a successful example of sustainable energy management: namely the Siegerländer mining industry from medieval times to the nineteenth century. Subject of the investigation below will be an analysis of the structural features of this Siegerland economy. The aim is, to identify these structural elements and bring into the current debate on sustainability.

Abstract English
This essay is supposed to answer the purpose of examining reflections about the technological development of war machinery between the end of the Franco-Prussian War and the beginning of the First World War. The use of technologically evolved weapons in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870/71 and other wars in the aftermath were observed critically and led to various opinions about the form of war to be. These were expressed in contemporary literature like pamphlets, scientific papers and science fiction novels. These will be analysed for imprints of technophobia, technophilia or fascination with technology. As this paper will point out, all three elements can be found in the corpus of literature consulted for this topic. Besides reflections on already existing and only enhanced weapons like guns or cannons, also technology not yet used in war like ironclads or airplanes and its impacts on future war are covered in the works chosen for this essay.

Abstract English
Even if Durkheim has received wide intercultural acknowledgement as a theoretician of modern sociology, one of his main concepts, the doctrine of collective consciousness, has been severely criticized by Adorno. To the extent, his reading provides evidence of diametrical methodical thinking and of clashing conviction. Nevertheless, there are several arguments which speak in favor of Durkheim: (i) his empirical foundation in connection with the lifelong attempt to provide consciousness a standing on this secondary collective balance; (ii) his awareness of the scaling of representations between distinctive fusion and broader aggregation; (iii) his succinct understanding of their interconnectedness to societal relationships; (iv) his orientation towards non-individualism and polarity. In particular under this aspect one can observe a failure of Adorno himself, merging the dialectical approach with polarity.

Abstract English
This article is about art and science and a certain parallelism between them in the evolution of Western culture, particularly over the last 150 years. I will try to describe what changes have taken place in our society’s operational schema and our shared paradigm. My construct will be one of art, though a strong influence from science will be evident. I propose that we have been living through a second renaissance provoked by a profound change in the definition and representation of reality by both art and science. Throughout the 20th century, the ideas put forth by both have been extremely unconventional and the two have interacted in ways not always obvious, providing new metaphors, new patterns for defining the future shape of our culture.

Abstract English
In the Western post-industrial societies, the individual experience is heavily shaped by the day-to-day contact with information and communication technologies. This article argues that everyday experience  based on the use of communication technologies leads to a specific adaptation of the human consciousness to the technical environment. The question is discussed, what is the impact of this process on human consciousness.

The paper aims at achieving two objectives, firstly, to acquaint the researchers in the field of spatial demography with the techniques of residential segregation; pattern of population distribution based on the  concept of spatial statistics and secondly, the practical evaluation of the techniques through real life data. The study queries about any residential segregation and pattern of location of the scheduled caste (SC) and the scheduled tribe (ST) population in Kolkata city by concentrating on the measures of Entropy Index (EI), Atkinson’s Index, Absolute Centralization Index (ACE) and the Global and Local Spatial Autocorrelation (SA) measures of Moran’s I and LISA. The outcome of the study clarifies the fact that caste and race based segregation is being diluted in the wake of Indian urbanization and the spatial clustering tendency of the Concerned Social Group (CSG) is as mild.

Abstract English
This article studies the idea of rhythm performance and perception as a tool for mobility places studies. Starting from the analysis of H. Lefebvre classification it introduces observer/actor dichotomy that allows to refer to marginal aspects in rhythmanalysis discussion, such as: mobility places, idea of atmosphere, dichotomy of rhythm/improvisation and applicability of rhythmanalysis to the bigger-scale territories. That allows broadening the limits of disciplinary field of “new urbanism”.

Abstract English
This paper was developed from a presentation hold on the annual convention of the department of Humanities and Social Sciences at the Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT) in February 2012.
Since the beginning of the Bologna Process the controversial issue of students’ time allocation has been occasionally discussed in the scientific community as well as in public media. It is ambiguous how much time students spend for studying and how they get along with their workload. For the first time a research group at the KIT collected and analysed a large scale of data on students’ time allocation, students’ workload as well as motives for studying during the semester break. This paper contrasts ‘time institutions’ of employees like the 40-hour working week with student time structures.

The historian Imanuel Geiss who died in Bremen on February 20 at age 81 was one of the few internationally renowned representatives of German historic teaching. His works about WW I, the history of racism, but especially his Encycplopedia of Global History “Geschichte griffbereit” (1979ff.) will be rememberd as milestones of .scholarship.

Abstract English
In the following, a new conceptual framework for investigating nowadays’ “technical” phenomena shall be introduced, that of formats. The thesis is that processes of formatting account for our recent conditions of life, and will do so in the very next future. It are processes whose foundations have been laid in modernity and which will further unfold for the time being. These processes are embedded in the format of the value chain, a circumstance making them resilient to change. In addition, they are resilient in themselves since forming interconnected systems of reciprocal causal circuits.Which leads to an overall situation that our entire “Lebenswelt” became formatted to an extent we don’t fully realize, even influencing our very percep-tion of it.

Abstract English
In the first part of this paper a short history of Western humanisms (Socrates, Pico della Mirandola, Descartes, Kant) is presented. As far as these humanisms rest on a fixation of the ‘humanum’ they are metaphysical, although they might radically differ from each other. The second part deals with the present debate on trans- and posthumanism in the context of some breath-taking developments in science and technology.
Angeletics, a theory of messengers and messages, intends to give an answer to the leading question of this paper, namely: ‘what does it mean to go beyond humanisms?’ The conclusion exposes briefly an ethics of hospitality and care from an angeletic perspective.

For many, after the era of a so-called post-modern age, that of a posthuman one seems to have emerged. Due to an ever-increasing entanglement of the human domain with various fields of the technological, for those who postulate that post-human era an entirely new epoch of history has begun. It is conceived as an epoch marked by an encompassing integration of the human and the technological and through that, leading not just to a new historical epoch to be added to all those others already passed by but to a new kind of history – the posthuman. It is conceived as the time after man; when man, in being just man, has ceased to exist and is about to turn into something (or somebody) different. A time that is thought to have already begun, and the fact that “posthuman age” could become a technical term reflects the overall conception of our contemporaneous conditions of life. It indicates that we even left the “technotope” (Ropohl), the coining figure for characterizing such conditions up to now, and are on the move towards conditions of a different quality; and thus, towards a new kind of history as such. The aim of this topic is to examine what this could mean, for us as well as for the spaces we live in, us being the inhabitants of the new age coming up the horizon. We invite to participate in the examination, in developing different perspectives on a not only fascinating but first and foremost important topic.

Abstract English
Space is a fundamental category for any form of power. It is also a medium of social relations, articulated as physical and symbolic distance. The production and control of space is thus crucial to any execution of power, representing its potency, reproducing its social order, and neutralizing and naturalizing its objectives through planning processes that lead to a specific physical layout. Any claim to power and property manifests and institutionalizes itself in the act of territorialization. Infrastructure is a prominent practice of the organization of space. It formed a specific understanding of boundaries, zone of security and means of separation: interior/exterior, private/public, legal/illegal.
There have been many voices claiming, that the decisive borders of today’s social order can no longer be defined in space thanks to the impact of new media and the advent of the information and telecommunications revolution. This is seemingly true but geography still matters like Carl John A. Agnew said in the early eighties. So a closer look inspired especially by Carl Schmitt and his famous remarks post WK II in Der Nomos der Welt bears witness not only a massive fragmentation of the landscape but also the production of hermetic spaces and territorial and legal islands.

Abstract English
In the 1970s and 1980s two new approaches to an evolutionary explanation of technology emerged: While a new generation of sociobiologists increasingly started to view animal and human artifacts as an ,extended phenotype’ of humankind historians and sociologists of technology found in an evolutionary genesis of technology a third way between technological determinism and a social construction of technology. This evolution of technology seemed able to explain multi-causal coherences in the genesis of technology applicably by using allegedly simple rules.

Abstract English
In the baroque age the maison de plaisance – summer residence – was the symbol for the exclusive way of passing the time for the European aristocracy and upper classes. With these grand country seats the atmosphere of  pleasure and amusement obtained its architectural arrangement. In modern literature and film this tradition was continued to create with architectural settings spatial atmospheres of highest symbolic expression. The most  famous example of dark spatial atmospheres is the haunted house. In many ghost stories and horror films haunted houses play the leading part, and important architectural details, for instance doors, staircases or walks, are  transitional elements, which evoke the different moods of fear and terror. These architectural dramaturgies are frequently based on ancient partly mythical patterns of imagination integrated in an archetypal dimension of  cultural anthropology. Therefore – if positive or negative – spatial atmospheres have a deep attraction for everyone, especially in media of art, literature and film.

Abstract English
This article highlights the historical and literary aspects of exile and punishment as a formative element in the spatial concept of Russian and Soviet empire-building. Using Siberia as a landscape of suffering, it em-pirically discusses the Foucaultian discourse on power and discipline of the modern state. It shows the continuity of the significance of punishment in Russian history in the decisive period of state formation in the nineteenth and twentieth century. Moreover, the attempt of the Russian state to modernize itself with violent measures provoked intellectual, especially literary dissension with a lasting impact on Russian historical memory. Prisons and Gulag labor camps in remote Siberia impose critical reflections on the development of a civil society.

Abstract English
In his novel Neuromancer, first published in 1984, the US-american author William Gibson coined the term cyberspace for the virtual reality generated by computers. On the basis of an etymological analysis this term can be interpreted as the traditional relation between helmsman and space. In the medium of sci-fi-literature and sci-fi-film this phenomenon of cyberspace changed rapidly between 1980 and today. In early examples, for instance in the film Tron produced in 1982, the virtual figures act in a disintegrated space without any destination or orientation. In later examples, for instance in the film Matrix produced in 1999, the cyberspace becomes a substitute world for a dark, chaotic or destructive vision of reality. Contemporary forms of cyberspace, as visualized in the 3D-online-city Second Life, are in contrast used for financial activities and symbolize the hard world of economic policy. This development of cyberspace can be seen either as an evolutionary process or a dichotomy primary defined by different facets of space simulation in virtual reality.

Abstract English
This paper describes Migratory Homes, two collaborative projects that investigate the notion of home/land and belonging in conditions of displacement. The fundamental question that Migratory Homes asks is “how can the disparate identities that constitute mixed societies collectively and equally participate in the creation of a common ‘home/land’ that would be co-designed, co-produced, and co-owned”? Through iterative engagements with conditions of everyday materiality, and by activating processes of co-design as research, Migratory Homes attempt to prototype conditions for social change.

Abstract English
The article highlights various aspects of the changes of a town in transition from the Middle Ages to Early Modern Times. Using pre-Medici Florence as an example, it is shown how economic change leads to new social and political formations. Characterized by an increasing industrialization of the manufacturing pro-cesses as well as a flourishing and expanding banking system with international capital interlocking, the new early-capitalist economic system provokes social upheavals that call for political solutions. As a conse-quence, the town and its inhabitants undergo devastating crises which are even accelerated by natural disasters and the spread of Black Death.

Abstract English
In the 1950s, the nuclear age was announced and propagated worldwide as a future blessing for mankind. “Atoms for peace” was the promising slogan, indicating that Western industrial nations denying the atomic salvation would be seriously threatening their own and the whole West’s economic prosperity. West Germany heavily embraced this technological utopia and relied on the development of nuclear technology since the 1950s. Despite continuous grassroot protest especially in West Germany, this resulted in a path dependency of a technical momentum (Thomas P. Hughes) in the system of the large-scale energy production until today, which only might have come to an end as a result of Fukushima’s super meltdown.
