This volume establishes a new agenda for approaches to migration research and the corresponding methodologies. A wide range of international contributors focus on the question of how to overcome the so-called 'methodological nationalism' within empirical studies on migration. They address two main challenges: how to contextualize the empirical research field; and how to deal with national and ethnic categorizations within the empirical studies. Methodologies on the Move outlines, first of all, a new epistemological basis for migration research, which is pinpointing the relational concept of space. Second, building on the multi-sited method of ethnography, it provides detailed insights into novel qualitative and quantitative research designs. Third, it presents innovative data collection methods on geographic and virtual mobility, and on cross-border social practices. This volume transcends the early criticisms of 'methodological nationalism' in migration research and suggests both general methodological lines as well as helpful tools for empirical analysis. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

W.D. Gann’s works helped to pioneer the discipline of technical analysis, and they still offer immense potential value to investors and traders. However, Gann’s original publications are esoteric and can be challenging to read and use. In this book, long-time trader and expert technical analyst Hima Reddy brings these works to life for modern traders and investors. She distills Gann’s tenets into crystal-clear, bite-size explanations, and illuminates them with exceptionally intuitive charts and illustrations. Drawing on extensive personal experience, Reddy explains how Gann’s insights into price, pattern and time can be applied in all types of markets and market conditions. Using this book, any experienced trader can discover the value of Gann’s approach, and start utilizing it in his or her own trades. Then, with Reddy’s discussion as a foundation, traders and investors can delve even more deeply into all of Gann’s works, identifying even greater opportunities for profit.

Angesichts der alltäglichen und allgegenwärtigen „Interkultur“ wird die qualitative Sozialforschung zunehmend mit Problemen konfrontiert, die mit ihren herkömmlichen Verfahren nicht mehr angemessen analysierbar sind – sei es, weil sie im eigenen Land auf das Miteinander unterschiedlicher Kulturen stößt und für deren Untersuchung über keine geeigneten Methoden verfügt, oder sei es, weil sie mit Daten arbeitet, die aus anderen Kulturkreisen stammen. Auch hier sind angemessene Methoden Mangelware. Eng damit verbunden ist ein weiteres, nicht zu unterschätzendes Problem Qualitativer Sozialforschung. Immer öfter sind die Interpretationsgruppen nicht mehr „monokulturell“ zusammengesetzt. Immer häufiger bestehen diese Gruppen aus Interpreten, die – kulturell betrachtet – divergente Interpretationshorizonte besitzen. Bei allen genannten Problemstellungen tauchen auf methodischer und methodologischer Ebene völlig neue Fragen für die Forschungspraxis auf.

Ist Assimilation ein »Verbrechen gegen die Menschlichkeit« (Erdogan) oder droht sich Deutschland ohne sie abzuschaffen (Sarrazin)? Den hitzigen Debatten über Assimilation, Integration und Diversität liegt die Frage zugrunde, ob politische, soziale und kulturelle Integration auf kultureller Einheit oder auf Pluralität begründet werden kann und sollte. Der Band stellt diese Konzepte nach neuestem Forschungsstand vor. Analysen zu verschiedenen Schauplätzen der Debatte - von der Deutschen Islamkonferenz über Verhandlungen von Assimilation und Diversität in Literatur und Film bis zum Terrorismus in England - und historische Perspektiven zeigen, wie die Integrationsfrage die Selbstdefinition moderner Gesellschaften in ihrem Kern trifft.
