The COVID-19 pandemic has not only sparked a renewed interest in history; it has also focused our attention on how the present can be historically preserved. Therefore, it is safe to predict that the COVID-19 crisis and its documentation will be analyzed by future historians, and it will bring about methodological and technological changes that affect our ways of working as historians of education. This chapter will examine the following: First, it looks at some basic characteristics of web archives and how they challenge our work as historians. Second, it offers reflections on different modes of archival access and on how this may affect current concepts of the past. Third, the chapter discusses how web archives relate to public history and, next, introduces the Education & Pandemics Archive launched by the International Standing Conference for the History of Education (ISCHE). The chapter will also provide preliminary insights into how web archives may affect our work as historians of education. Web archives offer different structures, opportunities for different interactions and technological environments. They can be characterized by collaborative processes by networked data within a flattened structure, and by interconnected hardware and software environments. Web archives are user-friendly, flexible and invite us to get involved and to develop new historical dimensions. [less ▲]

Numerous studies and handbooks in the history of education are devoted to the history of educational media and the evolution of educational technologies. This chapter puts an explicit focus on the implications and conceptual background of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization´s (UNESCO) technology-driven idea of education, which already took shape before the 1957 Sputnik shock. Eager to establish strong bonds between mass communication and education, UNESCO by the late 1940s had already begun to set up a powerful internal apparatus for media policy which soon closely collaborated with its Education Division. From the late 1970s, UNESCO set out to establish a New World Information and Communication Order to further stabilize its global role in education and media policies. This chapter posits that textbooks, radio, TV, film, and computers were serving as interconnected elements of UNESCO’s educational mission. By looking at these specific technological ecologies of education, I connect research into the history of education with research into UNESCO´s media policies. This conceptual history approach demonstrates that education is not only based on ethical norms, teaching, and learning but is also connected to technological properties that offer access to knowledge and its acquisition. In addition, and when studying UNESCO, it becomes evident that the organization´s education-technology-nexus is also very much connected with the media and publishing industries. [less ▲]

Dieser Beitrag richtet sich auf die Fotografie als aktive Intervention innerhalb einer geschädigten oder gefährdeten Umwelt und bedient sich dieses Mediums, um neue Perspektiven der Bildungsgeschichte – in Bezug auf die bereits geschriebene und die zukünftige – zu entwickeln. Diese Perspektiven werden besonders deutlich, wenn sie vor dem Hintergrund gegenwärtiger Debatten zu Fragen der planetarischen Verantwortung und einer geteilten Welt entwickelt werden, die auch unsere Vorstellungen von Erziehung und Bildung prägen. Der Beitrag schlägt vor, dass sich die Forschung von einer anthropozentrischen Weltsicht, sowohl in positiver als auch in negativ verstandener Weise, innerhalb der historischen Bildungsforschung verabschiedet. Dies impliziert kritische Distanz zu jenen Konzepten, die die Souveränität und Freiheit des Menschen in den Mittelpunkt rücken, ferner Distanz zu Ideen der Modernisierung und zu ökonomischem Wachstum als Norm, Distanz gegenüber Fortschrittsdenken, starken Nationalstaaten und dem Glauben an eine effiziente Steuerung von Bildungssystemen, deren ökologische Konsequenzen insgesamt negiert wurden und werden. Entsprechend wird argumentiert, dass anthropozentrische Ansätze der Bildungsgeschichte die Offenheit und Vulnerabilität des menschlichen Körpers sowie dessen ethische, kulturelle und soziale Nähe zu anderen Lebewesen sowie zur materiellen Welt vernachlässigt haben.

We consider translation and dilation mappings acting on the spaces of meromorphic functions on the complex plane and the punctured complex plane, respectively. In both cases, we show that there is a dense $G_{\delta}$-subset of meromorphic functions that are common universal for certain uncountable families of these mappings. While a corresponding result for translations exists for entire functions, our result for dilations has no holomorphic counterpart. We further obtain an analogue of Ansari’s Theorem for the mappings we consider, which is used as a key tool in the proofs of our main results. [less ▲]

This chapter critically examines the claim that investment treaty awards have a final and binding character. It finds that, despite providing different mechanisms of collection, the ICSID and New York Conventions provide states with a tool to avoid compliance with investment treaty awards based on sovereign immunity rules. These rules have been invoked by states in an increasing number of cases, creating a hurdle for investors to obtain payment of the award. This chapter concludes with some potential remedies to the immunity bar. [less ▲]

We present a unified approach to the design of social index numbers. Our starting point is a model that employs an exogenously given partition of the population into subgroups. Three classes of group-dependent measures of deprivation are characterized. The three groups are nested and, beginning with the largest of these, we narrow them down by successively adding two additional axioms. This leads to a parameterized class the members of which are based on the differences between the income (or wealth) levels of an individual and those who are better off. We then proceed to show that our measures are sufficiently general to accommodate a plethora of indices, including measures of inequality and polarization as well as distance-based measures of phenomena such as diversity and fractionalization.

It is often said that the entrepreneurs of today are the family businesses of tomorrow. This assertion is supported by findings in a Global Entrepreneurship Monitor (2019-20) Report on ‘Family Entrepreneurship’ which cites that 75% of respondent entrepreneurs across 48 economies indicate that their family was actively involved in either starting or developing a new business . In spite of this, and the fact that it is becoming more popular for family firms to encourage entrepreneurialism within the younger generation, it is often challenging for Next Gens to ‘carve out’ an entrepreneurial identity for themselves. This is even more so the case if the intention is to pursue new ideas that are not central to the core business and which might disturb long-planned succession strategies, or expectations held by senior family members. Making the decision to get on board the entrepreneur(ship) is an important career decision that has huge implications, not only for the Next Gens who are planning this, but also for current members of the family business who might have to adjust their expectations.

Ausgehend von einer Fallstudie werden in dieser Arbeit erforderliche juridische Schritte der Rechtsanwendung identifiziert und verschiedenen Objekt- und Meta-Ebenen zugeordnet.

Unprecedented economic growth has been experienced over the several decades worldwide, but such rapid economic growth wasn’t accompanied by equally-substantial improvement in health, especially health inequalities between the rich and poor. This study examines the role of housing in income-related health inequalities (income-health gradient) in urban China. We here analyze 1991-2015 China Health and Nutrition Survey data to ask how housing affects income-related health inequalities in urban China. We find pro-poor inequalities in self-reported bad health but pro-rich inequalities in objective bad health (general overweight/obesity, central obesity and high blood pressure). Housing conditions serve to reduce the health gradient, especially for objective health. On the contrary, homeownership exacerbates the health gradient. Improving housing conditions thus appears to be an effective way of reducing the income-health gradient in urban China. [less ▲]
