Article
Current research on social time and temporal change theories have not yet investigated the nature of this change in depth through hypothesis testing endeavours. In this paper we respond to this research desiderate through creating quantitative empirical proof for Germany and China. Our findings are based on theories of temporal digital change and t...
Article

Digital media have shown to alter how people deal with and plan time in everyday life. Quantitative research on the subject is scarce. In this paper, I address this by providing a survey design to measure temporal change in two cultural contexts, namely the German and Chinese one as they were previously two different temporal cultures which are now...
Article
Full-text available
This paper applies the Yin Yang concept to investigate German culture's duality holistically, dialectically and dynamically against the backdrop of Früh & Schönbach's dynamic-transactional approach and the mediatization concept. It is asked in which sense communication, (digital) media and culture are linked. Regarding dynamic duality, German cultu...

This chapter argues that Instalive is not only a channel for personal communication; it also functions as an alternative TV in restrictive contexts with limited access to free and independent media. Therefore, in this chapter, we briefly discuss how and to what extent Iranians use Instalive to produce, share, and access content which is prohibited...

Article
Full-text available
This paper explores how the internet changes the way we deal with and plan time in Germany and China. It looks at culture and media theories of temporal change from Germany and China, differentiates these according to micro, meso, and macro levels and integrates them in a micro-meso-macro-model. We consider network, connectivity, acceleration, and...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper explains in a de-westernized sense (Gunaratne, 2010) how internet-mediated communication changes the way we deal with and plan time both individually and culturally in Germany and China. Therefore, it blends Western and Eastern culture and media theories. The paper focuses on two distinct phenomena: temporal change due to social media an...

It challenges the dichotomy between the free West and the regulated East. Drawing on definitions, the key actors of both phenomena and specific juristic measures, the author then develops a visual intersec...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper explains in a de-Westernized sense how internet-mediated communication changes the way we deal with and plan time, both individually and culturally, in Germany and China as a most-different-system design. Therefore, it blends Western and Eastern culture (e. g. Confucianism) and media theories, and models a link between Micro, Meso, and M...
Article
Full-text available
Cross-cultural research has often highlighted the differences of cultures, discussing this in terms of dimensions. Prior research often failed to provide an emic insight into one culture's characteristics. In order to overcome such stereotyping, Thomas offers an approach derived from critical interaction situations where the distinct features of ea...

Question
Advice needed: I set up an ORCID profile a while back. It somehow triangulated different databases (with my consent), but imported some misleading data which I omitted. Does the auto-import function imply that this data will be re-imported again?
Question
I found the recommendation algorithm on ResearchGate not really helpful as it keeps suggesting publications from one professor in my field. Though I consider his works relevant, I would prefer more varied and nuanced suggestions of articles from my field. Any idea how I can influence this algorithm? I started trying to hide these repetive articles from my news feed - but it is clearly not working too well. Any advice appreciated!
Question
Dear all,
Today I was approached by Science Animated (https://sciani.com/), and was wondering if this is predatory or trustable? Also, is it usefule to promote your work there? I work in the social sciences, more specifically communication and media studies and do quantitative research. So very unsure what the benefits of this could be.
Thanks so much in advance to all the one's taking their time to answer,
Cheers, Maria
Question

The global order in a post-pandemic world is increasingly dominated by geo-political and economic tensions between the West and the Non-Western world, especially with regards to China. The digitalization of all life-spheres aside post-pandemic challenges bear both opportunities and challenges for the world order to come in the next decades. For example, China is usually ascribed a ‘Soft Power’ strategy in dealing with the rest of the world whereas the West sees its core competencies in promoting its cultural values such as strengthening of democratic values. In this context, it remains essential to establish nuanced, balanced, and moderate theoretical and empirical approaches to counteract discourses that fall in line with so-called novel Cold-War-narratives between China and its allies and the West. In this network and in various sub-research-projects, we seek to overcome dichotomous approaches and diversify the perspectives in order to promote inter-, trans- and cultural understanding between China and the West. Moreover, we aim to strengthen ambiguity tolerance in an increasingly pluralistic and poly-centric world order to address sustainable, long-term oriented and viable exchange and solutions between the different global powers. In an ideal setting, mutual respect, based on various levels of analytic research enquiry and policy-making, will contribute to tackling the prosperous co-existence of both China and the Western World.
