Community low carbon transitions – studies of the ways in which community is used to pursue environmental aims and objectives – are closely linked to arrangements of energy production and use. Community is used as a way to pursue particular energy agendas. Yet, as is often pointed out, the trajectory of transitions imagined, the ambitiousness of the envisioned transformation, and especially the implied community invoked within this, all remain gloriously inconsistent. Within community transitions attention increasingly focuses on the tensions emerging or smoothed over as competing agendas are brought together through capacious words and concepts: for example between so-called top-down government deployed community, and so-called bottom-up emergent community action. This paper offers one way to explain and explore these tensions, where they come from and, thus, help in understanding ways in which they may be overcome. Using the case study of an attempt to target one ‘street community’s’ environmental footprint in Scotland, the paper argues for taking an explicitly geographical and spatial lens to analyse these processes. The paper uses three forms of space—perceived space, conceived space, and lived space—to outline how three distinct but overlapping communities were spatialised. The contention of the paper is that tensions in community transitions often result from different spatial imaginaries, informing one’s approach to, and ‘common sense’ understanding of, community. In reflecting on the spatial implications different forms of community produce (and are in turn produced by), the article argues for greater appreciation of the imbrication of space, community, and energy as mutually co-constitutive.

Video games have been labeled a male space, and playing video games an activity created by men and for men (Fox & Tang, 2014; see also Lange & Schwab, this volume). The present chapter analyses the typical roles of male and female video game characters, their presentation in games, their effects, and how players perceive these characters. To this end, gender in video games will be analyzed on different levels. Although women and men share the same overall interest in playing video games as a medium for entertainment, they differ substantially with regard to genres and game titles they prefer. These gender differences have been attributed to the overrepresentation of male characters in video games, uninviting game contents that strongly rely on competition and physical aggression, and the stereotypical portrayal and scripted behavioral patterns of hyper-masculine or “macho” male and sexualized female game characters. The issue of gender portrayals in video games will be discussed in the light of theoretical considerations on evolved dispositions that differ by sex versus the social structural account that attributes sex differences to the differing placement of women and men in the social structure. It will be argued that both theoretical approaches make similar predictions regarding gender-specific video game preferences. [less ▲]

Care for elderly persons has many facets and is influenced by many factors of the care-dependent person, the care giver(s) and the micro-, and macro-social context. A co-operation of multiple disciplines is required to better understand phenomena of elder care and to act adequately in this field. This is even more urgent given the increasing population aging and the impending gaps between demand and supply of care. The present book provides a first substantive integration of knowledge from geropsychology, other gerosciences, and cultural psychologies to reach these goals —through a multi-disciplinary and international cast of authors. Macro-social context—including demographic, historical, political, normative, and other cultural factors—turned out to open and limit the available options for individual care giving and receipt and shapes how these issues are experienced by the participants in elder care. Elder care is shown to be far more complex than previously thought, because its consequences extend beyond single care givers to multigenerational caring families. Thinking, feeling and acting in relation to care dependency, caregiving and care receipt emerged as being influenced by multiple individual and social level factors. Future issues of elder care are seen as being shaped to a large extent by macro level factors such as population aging, social trends in job and family life, and development of assistive technologies. All this has far reaching implications for ensuring quality of care and the life quality on part of care recipients and care providers and for the coherence of social communities. [less ▲]

Der Beitrag versteht sich als Werkstattbericht und gibt erste Einblicke in die Entwicklung eines kulturwissenschaftlich orientierten Ansatz‘ zur Untersuchung von Grenz(raum)phänomenen. Dieser versucht weitgreifender zu sein als etablierte sozialwissenschaftliche Perspektiven und fasst Grenz(raum)phänomene als auf Grenzen und Differenzen bezogene Gefüge aus unterschiedlichen Praktiken und Diskursen. Die als Bordertexturen verstandenen Gefüge werden anhand von Fallbeispielen an der U.S.-Mexikanischen Grenze, der deutsch-französischen Grenze und in Nordirland illustriert und in verschiedene Analysedimensionen aufgeschlüsselt. Dazu zählen Korporealität, Räumlichkeit und Materialität als in diesem Beitrag exemplarisch aufgezeigte heuristische Zugänge zu Bordertexturen. Der Ansatz relativiert die verbreitete territoriale Perspektive auf Grenze und erweitert das Spektrum der Analyseperspektiven und Gegenstandsbereiche in den Border Studies. [less ▲]

Luxembourg ist in bemerkenswerter Weise von grenzüberschreitenden Mobilitätsphänomenen geprägt, zu denen Grenzpendler und Wohnmigranten zählen. Während beide Gruppen überwiegend unter sozioökonomischen Aspekten betrachtet werden, nimmt dieser Beitrag eine soziokulturelle Perspektive ein. Untersucht wird die Frage, inwiefern grenzüberschreitende Alltagsmobilität die Entstehung grenzüberschreitender Lebenswelten an der luxemburgischen Grenze fördert. Dafür werden die Entwicklung von sozialen Kontakten am Arbeits- und/oder Wohnort sowie die räumliche Organisation von Alltagspraktiken von Grenzpendlern und Wohnmigranten beleuchtet. Beide Teilaspekte werden in den betrachteten Gruppen anhand von quantitativ und qualitativ erhobenen Befunden aus verschiedenen Studien diskutiert und zueinander in Beziehung gesetzt. Der Beitrag gibt Einblicke in Lebenswelten an europäischen Binnengrenzen, für die nationalstaatliche Gliederungen nachrangig und zugleich konstitutiv sind. [less ▲]

Cette contribution a pour objet d'analyser l'importance des frontières nationales pour les identités spatiales dans des régions transfrontalières. À cet effet, elle élaborera un modèle d'analyse pluridimensionnel permettant d'étudier les identités et, à l'exemple de la Grande Région SaarLorLux, posera la question de savoir comment les habitants se représentent l'espace et organisent leurs pratiques de vie quotidienne sur le plan spatial. Par ailleurs, l'analyse révèlera des projections spatiales dans le discours politique et montrera dans quelle mesure celles-ci constituent une base de processus identitaires. La contribution démontre que, malgré des imbrications transfrontalières, les frontières nationales jouent un rôle important dans les processus de projection et d'appropriation identitaires des habitants de la Grande Région SaarLorLux, mais pas nécessairement en tant que catégories rigides.

In order to achieve our objective, we will first provide an overview of the development of cooperation research, its characterizing orientations and establish a link to the topic of this contribution (chapter 2). The following presentation of practice theories introduces praxeological thinking and provides a condensed outline of the state of the art of this cultural sociological theory (chapter 3). Building on this, we will develop our idea of a cross-border practice formation that breaks with the premises of traditional cooperation research, and we provide an alternative perspectivation by outlining four challenges of CBC (chapter 4). In consideration of some research-practical particularities which are linked to the suggested analytical perspective, we eventually offer (chapter 5) an outlook on the development of an alternative research approach which is compatible within a multidisciplinary context.

La présente contribution est conçue sous forme d'un rapport d'atelier et donne un premier aperçu concernant le développement d'une approche des phénomènes de frontières et d'espaces frontaliers sur la base des études culturelles. Cette approche tente d'être plus large que celle correspondant aux perspectives jusqu'à présent préconisées par les sciences sociales et appréhende les phénomènes des frontières et des espaces frontaliers en tant qu'entités composées de différentes pratiques et différents discours faisant référence aux frontières et aux différences. Ces entités comprises au sens de bordertextures sont exemplairement illustrées à travers des phénomènes concernant la frontière entre les États-Unis et le Mexique, la frontière franco-allemande et l'Irlande du Nord et elles sont déclinées en différentes dimensions d'analyse. Parmi ces dernières, la corporéalité, la spatialité et la matérialité figurent parmi les approches heuristiques des bordertextures que la présente contribution aborde à titre d'exemples. L'approche relativise la perspective largement répandue correspondant à une conception territoriale de la frontière pour élargir la palette des perspectives analytiques et celles des domaines analysés au sein des Border Studies.
