Read e-book online Sami Ben Gharbia und das erste tunesische E-Book. Grenzen PDF

By Carolina Baumann

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Multimedia, web, neue Technologien, notice: 1,3, Universität Mannheim, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In der Auseinandersetzung mit den Medien der heutigen Zeit ist das Verständnis für den Kommunikationscharakter der einzelnen Medien und für die damit verbundenen Möglichkeiten von großer Wichtigkeit. Später als bei anderen Medien erfasst die Digitalisierung auch das Buch.

Im Bewusstsein, dass der kreative Umgang mit Worten eine Methode ist, sich der Realität zu stellen, hat der tunesische Autor Sami Ben Gharbia das web für sich entdeckt. Durch das Bloggen und das Schreiben des ersten tunesischen E-Books mit autobiografischem, mitunter sogar universellem Charakter, verfolgt er das Ziel auf den diktatorischen, streng kontrollierenden Totalitarismus, unter dem damaligen Staatspräsidenten Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali (1987-2011), aufmerksam zu machen und dessen Missbilligung entgegen zu wirken.

In einer Welt, in der Globalisierung als Heilsversprechen in aller Munde ist, magazine es verwundern, dass Grenzziehungen, wie beispielsweise in Tunesien, Hochkonjunktur haben. Mit Hilfe der interdisziplinären Kulturwissenschaften lässt sich beobachten, dass die Grenze nicht nur eine konturlose Metapher ist, sondern durchaus eine Kategorie darstellt, mit der sich literarische Texte deuten und verstehen lassen. Durch das Überschreiten der Grenze unkonventioneller Praktiken, fordert Sami Ben Gharbia seine Rezipienten dazu auf, rigide Denkmuster über Bord zu werfen und sich einer kritischen Betrachtungsweise der kulturellen Konventionen zu öffnen.

Vor diesem Hintergrund soll in dieser Arbeit zunächst Sami Ben Gharbias Vita im Hinblick auf seine subversiven Aktivitäten vorgestellt werden. Daraufhin soll das übergreifende Medium des E-Books thematisiert werden. Anschließend wird die Gestaltung, mit dem Fokus auf Rahmungen und Grenzgängen, auf Grundlage einzelner Textstellen der ersten drei Kapitel des tunesischen E-Books Borj Erroumi XL-Voyage dans un monde adverse vertiefend analysiert. Nachdem die Grenzüberschreitung auf der thematisch innertextlichen Ebene betrachtet wurde, soll abschließend das Verhältnis vom Autor zu seinem textual content bearbeitet werden, wobei die Frage nach der Gattungszuordnung und gleichzeitig nach der autofiktionalen Darstellung aufkommt.

Anzumerken ist, dass diese Arbeit auf einem Erstversuch basiert. Da keinerlei Sekundärliteratur zu Sami Ben Gharbia und seinem Werk vorliegt, wurden für die Interpretationen ausgewählte Theorien von Jurij Lotmann, Gerard Genette oder Philippe Lejeunes herangezogen.

Durch Social Media zu Geschlechterdemokratie? Empowerment - download pdf or read online

By Christina Jahn

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2014 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Multimedia, net, neue Technologien, observe: 1,0, Universität Erfurt (Seminar für Medien und Kommunikationswissenschaft), Veranstaltung: Jenseits der fb- Revolution: Medien und Politische Transformation, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: Die Teilnahme von Frauen an den Protesten des Arabischen Frühlings weckte bei feministischen AktivistInnen in den betroffenen Ländern die Hoffnung, aus den gesellschaftlichen Umbrüchen würde auch eine verbesserte gesellschaftliche Stellung der Frau folgen. Der Arabische Frühling bot ihnen eine Plattform, um ihren Forderungen Gehör zu verschaffen. Dennoch wurde die Partizipation von Frauen an den Protestbewegungen durch patriarchalische Gesellschaftsstrukturen in vielen der betroffenen Ländern erschwert, und feministische Themen marginalisiert.

Am Beispiel von Frauen in arabischen Ländern und im Kontext des Arabischen Frühlings untersucht diese Arbeit welche Chancen das net für marginalisierte Bevölkerungsgruppen während sozialer Bewegungen bietet. Während des Arabischen Frühlings hat das web für Frauen die Möglichkeit geschaffen, sich auch dann aktiv an den Protesten zu beteiligen, wenn es ihnen aufgrund der patriarchalischen Strukturen nicht möglich conflict, im physischen Raum teilzunehmen. Nicht nur durch ihre physische, sondern auch schon durch ihre virtuelle Präsenz machten sie ihre Partizipation sichtbar und konnten so für einen Veränderung des traditionellen passiven Frauenbildes sorgen. Sie konnten ihre Anliegen auch dann in die Öffentlichkeit tragen, wenn ihnen der Zugang zu anderen Medienarten oder zum physischen Raum erschwert wurde oder verwehrt blieb.

Feministischer Diskurs im web ist potentiell transnational und bot damit die Möglichkeit, neue cross-kulturelle Erkenntnisse zu gewinnen und einen "Bumerang-Effekt" zu erzeugen. Als Fallbeispiele werden in dieser Arbeit zwei Online-Kampagnen beziehungsweise Online-Projekte genauer betrachtet: Zum einen 'HarassMap', ein ägyptisches Projekt, bei dem partizipativ Fälle von sexueller Gewalt dokumentiert wurden, sowie 'Women2Drive', eine Social-Media-Kampagne, die sich gegen das Fahrverbot für saudi-arabische Frauen richtete. Anhand der Beispiele sollen die Durchführung sowie kurz- und - soweit möglich - langfristige Wirkungen von Online-Kampagnen beschrieben werden.
