Zunehmende Mobilität und Migration von Menschen haben die Erfahrung sozialer und kultureller Heterogenität, die Pluralität von Lebensweisen an vielen Orten zum Normalfall werden lassen. Zusammen mit der Präsenz von Wissensbeständen aus unterschiedlichen Deutungshorizonten verlangt dies von Menschen, mit Mehrdeutigem und Ambiguitäten des Kulturellen, Sprachlichen, Religiösen und Weltanschaulichen zu leben. Die Transformationsprozesse in gesellschaftlichen und individuell erfahrungs- und handlungsorientierten Zusammenhängen stehen im Fokus. Transkulturalität wird dabei als ein heuristisches Instrument verstanden, um den Prozesscharakter von Kulturen und die Dynamik des fortwährenden Aushandelns von Inhalten und Dingen sowie deren Bedeutungen in sozialen Prozessen zu erfassen. Der Blick auf den Alltag der Menschen mit Migrationserfahrung zeigt die variationsreichen Verbindungen von individuellen und gruppenspezifischen Bedürfnissen, Referenzen zum Herkunftsland und Orientierungen am neuen gesellschaftlichen Umfeld.

This book celebrates the bicentenary of Schleiermacher’s famous Berlin conference "On the Different Methods of Translating" (1813). It is the product of an international Call for Papers that welcomed scholars from many international universities, inviting them to discuss and illuminate the theoretical and practical reception of a text that is not only arguably canonical for the history and theory of translation, but which has moreover never ceased to be present both in theoretical and applied Translation Studies and remains a mandatory part of translator training. A further reason for initiating this project was the fact that the German philosopher and theologian Friedrich Schleiermacher, though often cited in Translation Studies up to the present day, was never studied in terms of his real impact on different domains of translation, literature and culture.

This book examines the nature of the extreme right in contemporary Russia, arguing in particular that, alongside a continuing tradition which emphasizes Russia's orthodox and traditional past, an increasingly important intellectual current is drawing on Western European neo-fascist ideas and adapting them to the Russian situation. This book examines this intellectual current within the context of increasing conservatism across Russia as a whole, showing how the new ideas have an impact right across the political spectrum, and assessing the threat posed by them and their proponents.

All over Western Europe, the lot of many non-Western immigrants is one of marginalization, discrimination, and increasing segregation. In this bold and controversial book, Unni Wikan shows how an excessive respect for "their culture" has been part of the problem. Culture has become a new concept of race, sustaining ethnic identity politics that subvert human rights—especially for women and children. Fearful of being considered racist, state agencies have sacrificed freedom and equality in the name of culture. Comparing her native Norway to Western Europe and the United States, Wikan focuses on people caught in turmoil, how institutions function, and the ways in which public opinion is shaped and state policies determined. Contradictions arise between policies of respect for minority cultures, welfare, and freedom, but the goal is the same: to create a society committed to both social justice and respect for human rights. Writing with power and grace, Wikan makes a plea for a renewed moral vitality and human empathy that can pave the way for more effective social policies and create change.

The culmination of 15 years of research by a Turkish psychologist who was educated in the West, this volume examines both the theoretical and practical aspects of cross-cultural psychology. It takes a contextual-developmental-functional approach linking the child, family, and society as they are embedded in culture. A refreshingly different view, the author presents a portrait of human development from "the other side"--from the perspective of the "majority world." In a world seemingly dominated by American psychology, she proposes the cross-cultural orientation as a corrective to the culture-boundedness of much of Euro-American psychology. Analyzing human development in context while avoiding the pitfalls of extreme relativism, this work studies development with an inclusive, holistic, and ecological perspective, focusing on the development of the self and of competence. In so doing, it also attempts to combine cultural contextualism with universalistic standards and psychological processes. It proposes a theory of family change which challenges some commonly held modernization assumptions, and links theory and application while examining the role of psychology in inducing social change.
