GIS Special Courses in English for Exchange Students - Summer Semester 2020 - Social Sciences & Society

Course description

Contemporary Research in Social Sciences (CRiSS) is a recurring lecture series organized by the Faculty of Social Sciences, Media and Sports of Johannes Gutenberg-University Mainz. Members of the faculty present their current research projects in English and provide an insight into their research activities. Thereby, students learn about the research conducted in their immediate environment beyond their standard courses. They get to know the subjects and methods which characterize the faculty and receive an impression of their lecturers’ working profiles and common research practice.

The group of presenters comprises young researchers from all of the faculty’s disciplines: Communication Studies, Educational Science, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, and Sports Science. CRiSS provides an opportunity for students as well as researchers from neighboring disciplines to exchange thoughts, network and cooperate.

The lectures are held in English to enable an international exchange – with students as well as visiting researchers.

Course description

Overview

The SKIN simulation model (SKIN: Simulating Knowledge Dynamics in Innovation Networks) is one of the leading modelling/simulation tools currently available to represent the dynamic processes of technological innovation and social innovation in complex social systems. It is an agent-based modelling (ABM) platform allowing detailed representations of a heterogeneous mix of innovation actors (the "agents", for example: big and small firms, research institutes, R&D labs, intermediaries, NGOs, entrepreneurs and start-ups) and their dynamic interaction processes. It is an ideal platform for learning about how knowledge is created, transferred and distributed, how actors collaborate for innovation, models of innovation networks and governance of these processes, collaborations and networks. It counts among its strengths its powerful features for using and refining conceptual models based on robust empirical studies and applying ABM to innovation networks found in a variety of different, real world contexts. It is also a mixed methods toolbox for innovation policy-making, combining empirical studies, computational network analysis and ABM on top of traditional analytical methods. It allows ex-ante evaluation of possible policies, i.e. testing innovation policies in advance.

This seminar offers a course that functions as a broad introduction to the SKIN platform. In the course, students will be introduced to applications that can be relevant to their studies. It will address state-of-the-art, opportunities and limitations of the SKIN approach. It will assist in gaining hands-on experiences for programming applications of ABM/SKIN in the easy-to-learn NetLogo modelling language, building on previously learned skills for programming and social network analysis and moving on to computational network analysis. Other workflow-related skillsets include techniques for working with typical datasets relevant for innovation policy (e.g. patents data, R&D collaborations, research funding and investment), methods for data exploration and visualization, modelling/simulation, and communication of simulation results.

Learning outcomes

This course covers, on an introductory level, a survey of practical examples of how the SKIN platform can be used for achieving a better understanding of social and economic issues and problems related to technological innovation and social innovation. On the theoretical side, it will provide an overview of the complex knowledge dynamics that SKIN represents and cross-disciplinary, foundational knowledge on dynamic processes of technological innovation and social innovation in complex social systems, with key literature systematically reviewed. On the practical side, it will provide guidance for reasoning about which types of applications may be suitable for application to certain social and economic issues and problems, and how to make choices with regard design and implementation of a SKIN-based simulation project.

Course Requirements and assignments

Assignment 1: Pre-class preparation

This assignment is about producing excerpts (1 page per text) from the text book.

Each student is asked to agree with the instructor on seven excerpts taken from the different sections of the textbook.

The excerpts will be uploaded on JOGU-StINe five days before the block seminar dates.

Assignment 2: Class presentation

This assignment is about presentation of a topic in class.

Each student is asked to discuss his/her choice with the instructor, and prepare a session from the syllabus. In certain cases, this can be done in cooperation.

Assignment 3: Simulation project

This assignment is post-class work on a simulation project concerning one topic of the syllabus (mostly the one chosen for presentation). The students need to present a short abstract and the contents structure for their project to the instructor 10 days after the block seminar dates. The deadline for essay submission is the end of Summer Term.

Course description

After a general introduction into cartographic fundamentals and a discussion on the theoretical problems of maps as a powerful visualisation tool, the course intensively grapples with the web-based “user generated geographic content” of the social web, particularly with the specific social architecture of amateur mapping projects, such as Open Street Map, and the effectiveness and issue of the mashup-cartography on the basis of Google Maps and Google Earth. Following the theoretical study of the fundamentals of digital geography participants create their own internet-mapping-project, especially with the goal of being able to independently use social technologies of Web 2.0 as research tools. Potential further topics of the tutorials: Economic structures of Web 2.0, social media marketing, geographies of video games, power and hierarchies in the process of wiki-based knowledge production,etc. Addressing the current developments of each topic rounds off the seminar.

Time: 3 sessions (Weekend of 17-19 April), each day from 10:00 - 16:00

Course description

The seminar explores newly arising forms of entrepreneurship and labor which are related to and dependent on social media. This includes the emergence of small-scale businesses, for instance, by selling hand-crafted products on online-platforms or by becoming “mumpreneurs” using twitter or blogs for sharing parental experiences and placing products. Such new economic activities are analyzed from a geographical perspective.

After dealing with relevant texts, the students will start an own qualitative analysis of selected social media activities. A report has to be submitted at the end of the course.

Course description

Das Projektseminar zur Geschichte der Gärung thematisiert epochenübergreifend und in transdisziplinärer Perspektive die Gärung als einen chemischen Vorgang, der von höchster Relevanz für die Entwicklung der menschlichen Zivilisation war. Der Kurs soll den Zugang zu diesem Thema theoretisch wie praktisch erschließen. Dazu wird mit den Studierenden u.a. einen Nutzgarten nach dem Vorbild indigener Völker Nordamerikas angepflanzt sowie Gerichte nach überlieferten Rezepten nachgekocht. Die Studierenden werden dadurch in die Lage versetzt, die Bedeutung natürlicher biochemischer Vorgänge für die menschliche Ernährung von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart zu verinnerlichen. Ausgehend vom Nutzgarten soll die systematische Kultvierung und Verarbeitung von Nahrungsmitteln und deren kulturelle Bedeutung bis ins 21. Jahrhundert aufgezeigt werden, darüber hinaus sollen die Studierenden dazu angeregt werden, interdisziplinär und vernetzt zu denken und die Methoden anderer Fachwissenschaften – auch der Naturwissenschaften - in der Geschichtswissenschaft zu kontextualisieren.

Preliminary plan of the sessions

1. Der Anfang der Landwirtschaft: Einen nordamerikanischen Garten anbauen*
2. Die Geburt des Staates: Brot und Bier in frühen Zivilisationen
3. Demeter und Bacchus: Käse und Wein in der Antike
4. Im Gargantuas Bauch: Gären im Mittelalter*
5. Chicha und Schokolade: Der kolumbianische Austausch
6. Die Reformation: Das Bier vor Luther*
7. Das Barock: Tortellini à la Scappi
8. Kimchi in der Ära des Imperialismus
9. Die Ernährung im Dritten Reich: die Vollkornbrotpropaganda
10. Essen und Trinken in Stalins UdSSR: Den neuen Menschen ernähren
11. Die grüne Revolution: Tempeh für Alle!
12. Requiem für das Anthropozän: Die Zukunft der Ernährung
