Narrative identity and normative frameworks

Fricke, Lutz (2018)

In both the deontological and the teleological schools of thought the notion of responsibility has been construed in terms of transparency. Narrative ethical accounting demands that the agent has to make herself, her motives and her decisions transparent and to perform a coherent and unified identity. In this thesis, this ethical imperative of the transparent "I" is reconstructed as a case of e...

Strategies for fostering academic entrepreneurship

Sinell, Anna (2018)

An effective knowledge and technology transfer (KTT) process is essential for the competitiveness and sustainability of national innovation systems. On both a national and European level, ever more is being done by various stakeholders for the benefit of transfer—and in particular academic entrepreneurship as a specific dimension thereof—as a research institution’s third mission alongside resea...

Identities in transit

Merrill, Samuel (2015)

This article analyses urban railway infrastructures as landscapes in order to reveal their role as constructions and constructors of collective and individual identities. It does this by introducing the notion of 'identities in transit', a rhetorical category that problematises the tendency to consider the nexus of urban infrastructure and identity formation only during discrete moments and in ...

A Ground Truth on Room Acoustical Analysis and Perception (GRAP)

Ackermann, David ; Ilse, Maximilan ; Grigoriev, Dmitry ; Lepa, Steffen ; Pelzer, Sönke ; Vorländer, Michael ; Weinzierl, Stefan (2018-05)

A database of 35 virtual room models was created that can serve as a ground truth for the future development of room acoustical parameters beyond ISO 3382-1. Some of the room models are based on existing performance venues, however without yielding a perfect match of measured and simulated acoustical parameters. Others are artificial designs which were made to systematically cover a wide variet...

Tempo data from 50 performances of Beethovens Appassionata (Op. 57)

Brinkmann, Fabian ; von Loesch, Heinz (2018-05-24)

This database holds tempo data from 50 performances of Beethoven’s famous piano sonata Op. 57, also known as the Appassionata. Different versions of the score are for example freely available from the Petrucci Music Library (http://imslp.org).

The Hôtel Drouot as the stock exchange for art. Financialization of art auctions in the nineteenth century

Fuchsgruber, Lukas (2017)

Throughout historic developments, the publicly ascertained and published price of an artwork repeatedly served as a reference point for art theoretical discussion. Particular importance was attached to the auction sale price, since this financial evaluation of art was of such a public nature. While there is a long history of these ideas about the pricing of art, there are notable times of trans...

On the epistemic potential of virtual realities for the historical sciences. A methodological framework

Weinzierl, Stefan ; Lepa, Steffen (2017)

Virtual or augmented audio-visual environments can be employed not only for the impartment of knowledge to a wider audience, but also for the generation of knowledge within the historical sciences. In this context, the transformation of numerical models of historical circumstances into an immediate sensual experience may be used both in an exploratory manner as well as for testing specific hypo...

In pursuit of a science of agriculture: the role of statistics in field experiments

Parolini, Giuditta (2015)

Since the beginning of the twentieth century statistics has reshaped the experimental cultures of agricultural research taking part in the subtle dialectic between the epistemic and the material that is proper to experimental systems. This transformation has become especially relevant in field trials and the paper will examine the British agricultural institution, Rothamsted Experimental Statio...

Charting the history of agricultural experiments

Parolini, Giuditta (2015)

Agricultural experimentation is a world in constant evolution, spanning multiple scientific domains and affecting society at large. Even though the questions underpinning agricultural experiments remain largely the same, the instruments and practices for answering them have changed constantly during the twentieth century with the advent of new disciplines like molecular biology, genomics, stati...

TU-Note Violin Sample Library

Coler, Henrik von ; Margraf, Jonas ; Schuladen, Paul (2018)

The presented sample library of violin sounds is designed as a tool for the research, development and testing of sound analysis / synthesis algorithms. The library features single sounds which cover the entire frequency range of the instrument in four dynamic levels, two-note sequences for the study of note transitions, and solo pieces and scales. All parts come with hand-labeled segmentation g...

The emergence of modern statistics in agricultural science

Parolini, Giuditta (2015)

During the twentieth century statistical methods have transformed research in the experimental and social sciences. Qualitative evidence has largely been replaced by quantitative results and the tools of statistical inference have helped foster a new ideal of objectivity in scientific knowledge. The paper will investigate this transformation by considering the genesis of analysis of variance an...
