Inhaltsangabe:Einleitung: Die vorliegende Diplomarbeit beschäftigt sich mit österreichischen Kulturinstitutionen und geht speziell auf die Rolle von Merchandising in diesem Bereich ein. Merchandising ist kein neues Thema mehr in der Privatwirtschaft; im Kultursektor jedoch stellt es ein relativ junges und noch immer umstrittenes Konzept dar. Im Gegensatz zu anderen Ländern werden in Österreich Kunst und Kultur stark von Öffentlichen Mitteln unterstützt. Obwohl Bundesmuseen seit 1999 eigenständig wirtschaftlich handeln können (Vollrechtsfähigkeit), bekommen sie noch immer eine beträchtliche finanzielle Unterstützung (Basisabgeltung) von Seiten des Bundesministeriums für Bildung, Wissenschaft und Kultur. Trotzdem ist es notwendig, neue Geschäftsfelder zu erschließen, um Eigeneinnahmen zu generieren. Merchandising stellt eine solche Möglichkeit dar. Kulturinstitutionen befinden sich im Wandel aufgrund von verstärkter Konkurrenz aus den eigenen Reihen, aber auch durch das kontinuierlich steigende Freizeitangebot. Zudem wächst das Interesse an kulturellen Aktivitäten seitens Touristen. Diese Entwicklungen beeinflussen den Kulturmarkt und somit auch die Handlungsweise von Kulturinstitutionen. Es reicht nicht mehr aus, lediglich die Pforten zu öffnen. Besucher wollen angezogen werden, etwas erleben und Erinnerungen davon mit nach Hause nehmen. Merchandising kann in diesem Zusammenhang als Marketinginstrument eingesetzt werden. Darüber hinaus können Merchandising-Produkte als greifbare Erinnerungsstücke die Erfahrung und die Erinnerung an die Institution immer wieder aufleben lassen. Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, Bewusstsein dafür zu schaffen, dass eine Kombination von Kultur und Kommerz nicht unbedingt einen Widerspruch darstellen muss. Eine vernünftige Verknüpfung kann für beide Seiten vorteilhaft sein für die Kulturinstitutionen sowie für die Besucher. Es galt zu hinterfragen, inwieweit Merchandising als Marketinginstrument von österreichischen Kulturinstitutionen erkannt wird. Weiters wurde untersucht, ob Merchandising zur emotionalen Kundenbindung in österreichischen Kulturinstitutionen beitragen kann. Darüber hinaus sollte herausgefunden werden, ob eine Transformation von einer Kulturinstitution zur Kultinstitution durch emotionale Kundenbindung stattfinden kann. TEIL I dieser Arbeit stellt die Hermeneutik dar, welche eine umfassende Literaturanalyse zu folgenden drei Themenbereichen beinhaltet Kultur und Tourismus, Merchandising und [...]

This cultural and psychological study of gender identity and sexual development in a New Guinea Highlands society includes initiation rites and socialization studies, and contrasts the Sambia with other societies, including our own. Sambia boys experience ritualized homosexuality before puberty and do not leave it until marriage, after which homosexual activity is prohibited. The implications are developed cross-culturally and contextualized in gender literature.

This case study examines an isolated tribe in Indonesia, West New Guinea, when tribe members were still using stone axes, bows, arrows and spears, up to more present times spanning 34 years (1961-1995). The author's long engagement with the Dani results in a wide range of engaging topics as well as coverage of the ethical dilemma he faced as an anthropologist. One immediately acquires a sense of the limitations and strengths of the anthropologist's role in the field. Heider's 1995 visit to the Dugnm Dani left him less optimistic about the future of the Dani than his 1988 visit. Indonesian Independence Day was celebrated during Heider's stay. The Dani presence was barely acknowledged, while the Indonesian presence was colorfully represented. The past mistakes of foreign occupation of indigenous territory, committed mostly by Western powers, now seem repeated by the Indonesian authorities.

This case study will be the first to deal with a topic in medical anthropology. It explores the world of folk medicine in the Caribbean (Dominica) – local beliefs and practices concerning how the body functions and malfunctions and the home remedies Dominicans use to cure common illnesses. The case study goes beyond discussing the exotic medical system of a developing country (which includes sorcery and folk-illnesses) to discuss how folk medicine flourishes in industrialized countries in a way that is little different than that practiced in Dominica. The theme is that cultural ideas about the body and uses of medicinal plants are deeply intertwined. Ideas about illness direct the consequent medical response. The book's topic is important because knowledge of local ethnomedical practice is essential for development of public health interventions in non-Western settings. This realist ethnography is aimed at any member of the generally educated population.

The focus of this case study is the changing social and economic structure of the henequen zone in northwest Yucatan, Mexico, with special attention paid to women's economic participation. The henequen zone is unique in that it has been dominated by hacienda and state-controlled monocrop production since the colonial era. In recent years, this system of production has deteriorated. Since the author's first fieldwork in the 1970's, the area has faced economic decline as the henequen (sisal used for the production of binder twine and rope) market has collapsed. Recent national policies have further shaped the current economic and social conditions in the region. During numerous research periods since that time, the author has been recording the following trends in one village: • The increase in mixed economic strategies among villagers• The dramatic expansion of women's economic participation outside of the home and their increased social and political involvement in the village• Out-migration from the village to Meria, the state capitol, to the resort islands of the Caribbean, and in some cases, outside of the state of Yucatan. Within these shifting economic and social positions, the text explores how families and communities develop in order to maintain themselves and their culture. The theme of the case study is change and resilience.

As part of the Spindler/Stockard Case Studies in Cultural Anthropology Series, HAWAIIAN FISHERMAN is the first case study that presents the cultural aspects of fishing in Hawaii. Author, Ed Glazier, describes an important socio-cultural domain enacted in a complex cultural context which has received little attention in the anthropological literature. The book articulates local-level issues with macro-scale social and political economic processes with relevant social theory.
