T The Turn analyzes the research of information seeking and retrieval (IS&R) and proposes a new direction of integrating research in these two areas: the fields should turn off their separate and narrow paths and construct a new avenue of research. An essential direction for this avenue is context as given in the subtitle Integration of Information Seeking and Retrieval in Context. Other essential themes in the book include: IS&R research models, frameworks and theories; search and works tasks and situations in context; interaction between humans and machines; information acquisition, relevance and information use; research design and methodology based on a structured set of explicit variables - all set into the holistic cognitive approach. The present monograph invites the reader into a construction project - there is much research to do for a contextual understanding of IS&R. The Turn represents a wide-ranging perspective of IS&R by providing a novel unique research framework, covering both individual and social aspects of information behavior, including the generation, searching, retrieval and use of information. Regarding traditional laboratory information retrieval research, the monograph proposes the extension of research toward actors, search and work tasks, IR interaction and utility of information. Regarding traditional information seeking research, it proposes the extension toward information access technology and work task contexts. The Turn is the first synthesis of research in the broad area of IS&R ranging from systems oriented laboratory IR research to social science oriented information seeking studies.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: sehr gut, Universität Duisburg-Essen, Veranstaltung: Hauptseminar Henry James, 14 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Henry James Geschichte „The Turn of the Screw“ brachte nicht nur unzählige Interpretationen und Diskussionsstunden bei Literaten hervor, sondern sie diente schon mehrfach als Basis für eine Verfilmung. Die erste Verfilmung mit dem Titel „The Innocents“ ist 1961 unter der Regie von Jack Clayton entstanden und gilt bis heute als ein Meisterstück und Klassiker des „British Horror Cinema“. Sowohl das Original in Schriftform als auch die filmische Adaption erreichen auf ihre jeweils eigene Weise ein hohes Maß an Ambivalenz hinsichtlich der Natur und Realität der Gespenster und ihrer Opfer zu erzeugen. In diesem Essay versuche ich die Mittel, mit denen die Doppeldeutigkeit erzeugt wird, herauszustellen und anschließend miteinander zu vergleichen. Zunächst gehe ich auf die Geschichte von Henry James ein und versuche den Beweis für die Hypothese zu liefern, dass die Essenz der Geschichte darin besteht, sie nicht eindeutig interpretieren zu können. Im zweiten Teil der Arbeit wird der Film in Bezug auf seine Umsetzung der Doppeldeutigkeit analysiert und schließlich ein Fazit aus beiden Teilen gezogen.

Essay aus dem Jahr 2000 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,3, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin (Institut fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Einfuhrung in die amerikanische Literaturwissenschaft I, 9 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Gleichsam ob Henry James' Novelle The Turn of the Screw aus einer biographischen, psychoanalytischen, theologischen, politischen oder einer homoerotischen Perspektive analysiert wird, die Tatsache, dass es sich um eine fiktive Geschichte handelt, sollte in keiner der Interpretationen unterbewertet werden. Die Schwierigkeit, Henry James Geistergeschichte nicht eindeutig lesen und bewerten zu konnen, macht sie besonders reizvoll und einzigartig. Ein Aspekt, unter dem man sich Henry James' The Turn of the Screw nahern kann, ist verbunden mit der Frage, ob die Gouvernante einen gefallenen Engel oder eine neurotische Morderin verkorpert. Die Beantwortung dieser Frage ist abhangig von der Einstellung, inwiefern die Geistererscheinungen fur die Gouvernante Realitat oder Imagination sind. Henry James selbst sah The Turn of the Screw als 'a piece of ingenuity pure and simple' und 'an irresponsible little fiction', 'a work of cold artistic calculation'1. In diesem Zusammenhang ist zu hinterfragen, ob 'gestorte' Sexualitat, wie sie Edmund Wilson in seinem Essay "The Ambiguity of Henry James"2 verwendet, tatsachlich als Erklarungsmodell fur die Geistergestalten und die Schuld der Gouvernante dienen kann. Der Versuch, das Verhalten der Gouvernante mit wissenschaftlicher Methode bis in das kleinste Detail zu analysieren, sich daraufhin nicht nur ein Urteil uber ihren Geisteszustand-, sondern Ableitungen uber ihre unterdruckte Sexualitat zu machen, scheint in den von Sigmund Freuds Psychoanalyse inspirierten Interpretationen ubertieben. Bei meiner Gegenuberstellung der psychoanalytischen Perspektive Stanley Renners (basierend auf Wilsons These) und der religiosen Betrachtungsweise Dorothea Krooks3 ("
