Integration through Exploitation: Syrians in Turkey
(Reiner Hampp Verlag, 2019)
This book is about the largest displacement crisis and resettlement of our time. However, it is not another piece that elaborately describes the appalling situation of Syrian workers in Turkey, but explores how they are integrated into the lower ends of the value chain in several sectors. The book seeks answers of what has been largely overlooked in the literature on the question of how labor processes have been shaped in various labor-intensive sectors by class and identity.
Reflexionsfähigkeit in der Lehrerbildung - eine empirische Untersuchung im Rahmen der Schulpraktika im Fach Sport
Im Kontext der Professionalisierung angehender (Sport-)Lehrkräfte kommt der Fähigkeit zur Reflexion besondere Bedeutung zu. Für ihre Förderung stellt die Arbeit mit (Video-)Fällen eine geeignete und anerkannte Methodik dar. Die Fallarbeit kann sich sowohl auf fremde videografierte als auch auf selbst erlebte Unterrichtsereignisse beziehen. Die Schulpraktischen Studien bieten als Theorie und Praxis verbindende Veranstaltungen Gelegenheit für das Sammeln eigener Unterrichtserfahrungen. Sie stellen damit einen geeigneten ...
Contextual cues and anticipation
This dissertation examined the effect of event history on anticipatory behavior in tennis. The starting point of this work is that athletes rely on both kinematic cues from their opponent’s movements and contextual cues when anticipating opponent’s action intentions in time-constrained sport situations. Based on the assumption that the outcome of previous events depicts a relevant contextual cue which influences anticipation towards a subsequent event in time-constrained sport situations even in the presence of ...
Informality and Labour Regulations in Ghana
(Rainer Hampp Verlag, 2019)
The book makes a major contribution to the controversy about the factors driving the persistence and expansion of the informal economy. Unlike most others studies which either take a structuralist or an actor’s choice approach to the topic, this study combines a careful assessment of the economic, social and political circumstances promoting informality with a meticulously carried out econometric analysis of the dominant characteristics of workers as well as enterprises in the informal economy in comparison to those ...
Maps and Travel: An Introduction
(De Gruyter, 2019)
This volume is an attempt to illuminate the way geographic space was described and visualized in premodern times and how significantly these depictions differed from region to region, from period to period, and from context to context. Various methods of mapmaking and different ways of putting travel experiences into words yielded different results. The history of travel and mapmaking does not reveal a continuous evolutionary progression, but, rather, results in the delineation of individual distinctionsand differences ...

Winds and Continents: Concepts for Structuring the World and Its Parts
(De Gruyter, 2019)
The present essay is an attempt to show how and why winds and geographic entities, originally referred to as the parts of the earth and only later as continents, became important for the perception of the structure of the world. My starting point is Burchard of Mount Zion’s travel report ‘Descriptio terrae sanctae’, written between 1274 and 1285, which was based on these two concepts. Versions of that report, which circulated from the fourteenth to the sixteenth century, were adorned with various illustrations. I ...
Ein Blick aus dem Autofenster hat mir im Winter eine Landschaft gezeigt, die ich in den anderen Jahreszeiten so noch nie wahrgenommen hatte. Dieser Blick hat nur einige Sekunden gedauert, aber ausgereicht, meine Neugier zu wecken und interdisziplinär im Schnittfeld von Architektur und Bildung, mit kunstwissenschaftlicher Architekturgeschichte zur Analyse, zu forschen. Mit meinen Bildungsspaziergängen möchte ich Entdecken und folglich das Entdeckte sichtbar machen, um die Ideengeschichte der jeweilige Gesellschaftsform, ...
Occupational Safety and Health Challenges in Southern Agriculture
(Rainer Hampp Verlag, 2019)
Occupational safety and health (OSH) is a core element of the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda. Despite hazardous working conditions in agriculture, unfortunately, OSH issues in agriculture are frequently ignored. This volume’s contributions from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Ghana, India, Nicaragua, and Pakistan as well as from various disciplines highlight - the prevalent patriarchal norms and practices which expose women to more health risks; - the lack of training and education which leave smallholders and ...
Labor Rights, Working Conditions, and Workers’ Power in the Emerging Textile and Apparel Industries in Ethiopia: The Case of Hawassa Industrial Park
To be able to participate in the global production network and enhance its manufacturing sector, the government of Ethiopia has been building industrial zones (Export Processing Zones) in various parts of the country. These zones have already attracted substantial investments into the country in the light manufacturing sectors, particularly, textile and apparel industries, as a result of which the country is gradually gaining the potential to become a global textile and apparel sourcing hub. Despite the governments’ ...
