This book is the product of an eponymous workshop, which took place in Erfurt in May, 2012, and which has since then been supplemented with four further contributions. The topics focus on the potential mapping of perceived urban space and spatial hierarchies as a consequence of social usage (undertaken by a variety of active participants) together with spatio-temporal changes as a result of factors such as demographic urban growth and decline. Historians, cartographers and geographers are brought together to present and discuss different models, ideas and new methods of spatial analysis and modes of representing changes in perceptions. The two main subjects are: the epistemology of spatial change and the question of (historical) media and adequate presentation. This work represents a first step toward the development of a new model for mapping urban changes and spatial relations concerning the past, present and future.

Seminar paper from the year 2003 in the subject Communications - Theories, Models, Terms and Definitions, grade: 1,3 (A), University of Erfurt (Communication Science), course: Intercultural Communication, 10 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The main representant of Structuration Theory is Anthony Giddens who developed the idea of structuration in his book 'The Constitution of Society' written in 1984. The theory wants to explain the ways in which social systems are produced and reproduced in social interaction. In contrast to other social theories, structuration theory claims to explain the relationship between the micro-societal and the macro-societal level. Giddens says that social life is not only explained by individual actions but can on the other hand neither be explained only by looking on macro-level social force. The central proclamation of structuration theory is that the repetition of individual acts reproduces social structures. This means, individuals act on the micro level in order to accomplish their intentions, but these actions have 'unintended consequences of establishing structures that affect our future actions' (Littlejohn, 2002: 152). Like this, human beings can modify these structures by replacing them or reproducing the structures in a different way. Thus, structuration means studying the reproduction of individua l face-to-face interactions on the societal level. The reproductions of the structures is illustrated by Giddens¿ so called 'stratification model of the agent'. At first, there is the motivation of the action, the reason why the agent acts. In the rationalization process, the agent adapts his action to his general theoretical understanding of the basis of his activity. Reflexive monitoring of action means that individuals monitor continously and routinely the social and physical contexts of their actions and the actions themselves. But this monitoring cannot prevent that the actions has some unintended consequences. These can modify the structures the action was placed in and then lead to new unacknowledged conditions of the action. These new conditions influence the following actions and like this close the continous circle.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Universität Erfurt, Veranstaltung: Reading Course: City and Literature, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: According to Giles, Theodore Dreiser ¿s Sister Carrie set the ¿model ¿ for the 'dual approach' (24) to the literary description of the city: 'From the beginning [with Dreiser ¿s Sister Carrie], the diverse body of American urban fiction has projected a dual response to the city as the embodiment of fascination and promise and as a corrupt, even brutal landscape' (ibid. 35). Giles uses the term ¿dual approach ¿ to point out that the authors of most ¿city novels ¿ attribute both positive and negative characteristics to the city. While some of them 'emphasize one half of this dichotomy over the other' (ibid. 24), Theodore Dreiser ¿s ¿approach ¿ to the description of the city in Sister Carrie clearly is of a ¿dual ¿ nature, as he describes positive and negative attributes of the metropolis. Similarly, his approach to nature is also a dual one.
