  • Vanessa Ceia’s talk features her project, “Mapping the Movida,” which visualizes the Movida, a sociological phenomenon and cultural renaissance that emerged in Madrid during the first decade of Spanish democracy (1976-1986). Ceia demonstrates how combining the use of digital tools and deep mapping techniques with traditional archival research methods has the potential to de-colonize historically accepted geographies and narratives of the Movida. Her project is a scholarly response to the limited scope of artists (mostly male and affluent) historically associated with the Movida in mainstream press and scholarship. Unearthing new spaces, artists, and socio-economic classes, Mapping the Movida problematizes the cultural and spatial canon of the period and brings to light uncharted human geographies of post-authoritarian Spain.

  • En el diseño de revistas científicas electrónicas como oferta de información intervienen varias disciplinas del conocimiento como el diseño de servicios, la comunicación visual, la arquitectura de información y la ingeniería del software. Existen escasas revistas científicas que socializan los estudios multimedia. A nivel nacional no se identifican publicaciones científicas especializadas y a nivel internacional existe una concentración de revistas en la nación de España. Se plantearon como objetivos de la investigación: 1) examinar los referentes teóricos, conceptuales y metodológicos que sustentan el diseño de una revista científica electrónica, 2) identificar las necesidades de información de los usuarios potenciales de la revista científica electrónica sobre la temática multimedia y 3) determinar los requerimientos del diseño de la oferta, la arquitectura de información e ingeniería de software para una revista científica electrónica sobre la temática multimedia. La investigación realizada clasifica como aplicada. Para la obtención de resultados se utilizaron métodos en los niveles teórico y empírico. Se emplearon diferentes metodologías de las disciplinas referenciadas para el diseño de la revista científica electrónica. Se desarrolló un estudio de usuarios con el propósito de identificar las necesidades de información de los usuarios potenciales que desarrollan estudios sobre temática multimedia. Se diseñó una revista científica electrónica como oferta de información para la socialización de estudios sobre la temática multimedia. La revista emplea el sistema de gestión de contenidos Open Journal Systems, aspecto que favorecerá la futura indización de la publicación mencionada.

  • Se realizó un estudio observacional descriptivo, perteneciente a la metodología de investigación cuantitativa, con el objetivo de caracterizar las redes de apoyo social de los Adultos Mayores ubicados en la Casa de Abuelos del municipio de Camajuaní, durante el 2016.Trabajamos con 23 adultos mayores que componen el universo en dicho centro pues todos cumplían con los criterios de inclusión y exclusión predeterminados. Para dar respuesta a los objetivos propuestos se utilizaron como técnicas la observación, la entrevista semiestructurada, el Test de Apoyo Social, y el Test de Percepción de las Relaciones Familiares, los cuales se aplicaron durante tres sesiones de trabajo con cada sujeto estudiado .Obtuvimos como resultados que los adultos mayores pertenecen en su mayoría a la etapa de la senectud, sexo masculino y viudos, características que según la literatura se asocian al ingreso institucional. Según la frecuencia de contactos establecidos con ellos, la institución seguida de la familia, vecinos, amistades y asociaciones religiosas constituyen sus principales redes de apoyo. Desde su percepción, los adultos mayores refieren vivir en un medio familiar con relaciones desarmónicas entre los miembros lo que genera dificultades para la transmisión plena de las diferentes formas de apoyo, siendo este de preferencia instrumental e informativo, con algún matiz afectivo y espiritual, lo que conduce a insatisfacciones con su principal red de apoyo informal. Señalan la Casa de Abuelos, como la red con mayor frecuencia de contactos, la cual les proporciona apoyo instrumental, informativo, espiritual y emocional en ese orden según cantidad. Se sienten muy complacidos con su permanencia en la institución, que en ocasiones consideran como un hogar donde gracias al personal y fundamentalmente al grupo de coetáneos logran un desarrollo pleno y mantienen su calidad de vida.

  • This article is a study of the making of Pera district of Istanbul in the late nineteenth century. But its place of analysis is not the heart of this famous, ‘cosmopolitan’ urban setting, but rather one of the loci fundamental in its material construction. Through following the course of the waterworks between Terkos and Pera, I examine the environmental impact of Pera’s making on Istanbul’s wider geographies. Kentel, K. Mehmet. “Nature’s ‘Cosmopolis’: Villagers, Engineers, and Animals along Terkos Waterworks in Late Nineteenth-Century Istanbul.” In The Seeds of Power: Explorations in the Environmental History of the Ottoman Empire, edited by Onur Inal and Yavuz Köse, 155-183.

  • Uesugi Kenshin (1530-78) was born in Echigo (present-day Niigata Prefecture) in north-western Japan as the son of Nagao Tamekage, a high-ranking local official of the Muromachi shogunate, and he came to rule over the province at a time when the military conflicts that had ravaged the country, locally and regionally, since the middle of the fifteenth century were quickly developing into a fight for national supremacy. He himself was a very active participant in this process from the middle of the sixteenth century onwards, and his activities have earned him the reputation of being one who let himself become involved in the conflicts of the day, not out of consideration for his own interests but out of loyalty for the central authorities and the Ashikaga polity. This reputation makes him a bit of a rarity among the warlords of that period, but in fact he seems to have been very much a man of his time. From his earliest childhood, he was used by the Funai-Nagao as a means to protect their interests, and after he had taken over the leadership of the family, he continued to do so. Thus, he did not hesitate to confront potential enemies who came too close to the borders of Echigo when engaged in military conquests in neighbouring provinces. And in time, after some years of indecision caused, apparently, by religious considerations, he would also adopt a policy of territorial expansion in order to strengthen his position as Echigo’s ruler and, ultimately, to establish a new national hegemony.

  • Within the framework of the conference the present article argues that the controversial territories Goethe every so often trespasses are not so much those between science and poetry - as often put forward, but rather a twilight zone between a traditional culture of narrative knowing and a modern culture of scientific knowledge, a distinction set forth by Lyotard (The Postmodern Condition, 1979). In fact, if we examine more closely the forms and means of representation Goethe uses in his dealings with scientific objects, we find that to an astonishingly high degree they exhibit the characteristics which Lyotard considers symptomatic of pre-modern “narrative knowledge”, namely a mixture of various discourse functions such as savoir-faire, savoir-vivre, and savoir-écouter, with the corresponding criteria of usefulness, of justice or happiness, and of aesthetic appeal instead of the exclusive ‘true’/‘false’ criterion of modern science discourse.

  • ABSTRACT What is musical time? Where is it manifested? How does it show up in our experience, and how do we capture it in our analyses? "Enacting Musical Time" offers several answers to these questions by considering musical time as the form of the listener’s interaction with music. Building on evidence from music theory, phenomenology, cognitive science, and social anthropology, the book develops a philosophical and critical argument that musical time is created by the moving bodies of participants engaged in musical activities. The central thesis is that musical time describes the form of a specific kind of interaction between musical sounds and a situated, embodied listener. This musical time emerges when the listener enacts his or her implicit kinesthetic knowledge about “how music goes”—knowledge expressed in the entire spectrum of behavior, from deliberate inactivity, through the simple action of tapping one’s foot in synchrony with the beat, to dancing in a way that engages the whole body. This idea is explored in the context of recent Western classical art music, where composers create temporal experiences that might feel unfamiliar or idiosyncratic, that blur the line between spectatorship and participation, and even challenge conventional notions of musical form. Basing the discussion on the phenomenology of Merleau-Ponty, and on the ecological psychology of J. J. Gibson, the volume examines different aspects of musical structure through the lens of embodied cognition and what phenomenologists call “lived time,” or time as it shows up in human lives.
