New Issue: Cultural Analysis and In-Depth Hermeneutics (Journal for Historical Social Research)
The latest issue of the journal for Historical Social Research (HSR) has been released:
Historical Social Research 38 (2013) 2 – Cultural Analysis & In-Depth Hermeneutics.
This new HSR Issue contains two Foci:
Focus I: Henning Salling Olesen (Ed.): Cultural Analysis & In-Depth Hermeneutics – Psycho-Societal Analysis of Everyday Life Culture, Interaction, and Learning.
This HSR Focus presents a psycho-societal approach to qualitative empirical research in several areas of everyday social life. It is an approach which integrates a theory of subjectivity and an interpretation methodology integrating hermeneutic experiences from text analysis and psychoanalysis. Special attention is paid to Lorenzer‘s development of a materialistic socialization theory and the indepth hermeneutic cultural analysis. The psycho-societal approach owes a great deal to critical reformulations of each of these traditions, which will be touched upon in some of the eight HSR-articles and will be combined with a number of empirical studies of everyday life culture, social practice, and learning.
Focus II: Fumiya Onaka (Ed.): Aspects of Process Theories & Process-Oriented Methodologies in Historical and Comparative Sociology
The second Focus discusses the relation between “process-oriented data” and theories, focusing on historical and comparative sociology. The five contributions examine from the viewpoint of process-generated data a number of theories as diverse as Path-Dependency Theory, Assemblage/Minoritarian Theory, Communication Process Theory, Nationalization/Symbolic Media Theory and Socio-Cultural Network Theory.
