Wa H Re Arch Ologie from the Author: Marco Kircher. Archäologie wird in populären Wissensprodukten oftmals wirkmächtig vermarktet. Marco Kircher erörtert die zentralen Spannungsfelder zwischen akademischen und publikumswirksamen Präsentationen archäologischer Forschung und zeigt ausführlich auf, welche Akteure warum welche Darstellungsformen wählen. Die Ergebnisse verschiedener Fallstudien über erfolgreiche TV-Dokumentationen (Terra X) und Sonderausstellungen (z.B. über Tutanchamun) sowie Interview-Aussagen diverser Beteiligter werden mit generellen Trends der Wissensvermittlung verknüpft. Zudem zeigt Kirchers Studie aktuelle Tendenzen, insbesondere des Internets, auf - und liefert dadurch fächerübergreifende Impulse zum Verhältnis von Wissenschaft, Kommerzialisierung, Öffentlichkeit und Medien.

Cities Contested from the Author: Martin Baumeister. Die 1970er-Jahre gelten in der deutschen Zeitgeschichte als Epoche eines tief greifenden sozialen Wandels, eines "Strukturbruchs " im Übergang von der Industriemoderne zur postfordistischen Gesellschaft. Die Beiträge dieses Bandes widmen sich diesem Jahrzehnt erstmals aus einer stadthistorischen Perspektive und stellen dabei Entwicklungen in Westdeutschland und Italien einander gegenüber. In Fallstudien zu Städten vom Ruhrgebiet bis Sizilien wird untersucht, wie sich die Umbrüche dieser Zeit im Brennpunkt von städtischem Raum und städtischer Gesellschaft verdichten, als "urbane Krise" wahrgenommen und verhandelt werden und sich in Konflikten in der städtischen Politik sowie Kämpfen in und um die Stadt manifestieren.
