Band 9: Exchange, Destruction, and a Transitioning Society

Autor: Jesse Michael Millek

The end of the Late Bronze Age ca. 1200 BC in the Eastern Mediterranean is traditionally viewed as an end point. Great empires collapsed, prominent cities were destroyed, interregional exchange disappeared, and writing systems were all but lost in most of the Eastern Mediterranean. The goal of this volume is to examine one key aspect of the transition from the Late Bronze Age to the Iron I in the Southern Levant, the development and changes in interregional exchange both over time and regionally. Twelve non-local types of material culture were collected into a database in order to track the development of interregional exchange over the course of the LBA to the Iron I. With this data, this volume explores what affect, if any, did changes in interregional exchange have on the ‘collapse’ of the LBA societies in the Southern Levant. Another key aspect of this work is an examination of the supposed wave of destruction which took the Southern Levant by storm to see if these events might have affected trade and contributed to the transitions during the end of the LBA into the Iron I. In all this work seeks to understand what changes took place in interregional exchange, how might destruction have affected this, and was this the cause for the transition to the Iron I.

Udo Neumann – Guide for the microscopical identification of ore and gangue materials

Reflected-light microscopy is an essential method in earth and materials sciences for the observation of opaque minerals in rocks, metallic ores, coals, and of synthetic phases in slags, cements, metalls/alloys and coal. In contrast to other analytic investigations, ore microscopy does not only allow for the identification of many minerals but also enables the user to characterise their intergrowths and fabrics, resulting in the interpretation of their genesis and of the subsequent transformation processes, like alteration, replacement, exsolution and deformation. This guide is intended to serve as an introduction and helpful resource for geosciences students and professionals in the industry for identifying important opaque minerals and some synthetic phases. It includes the optical properties of 130 ore and gangue minerals as well as at least four photomicrographs of their typical appearances, textures, and assemblages.

20. März 2019: Follow-up-Workshop „OA-Publikationsworkflow für Bücher“ in Leipzig

Die Redaktion des Tübinger Univerlags ist als Stakeholder am Forschungsprojekt „OA-Hochschulverlag“ der Fakultät Medien der HWTK beteiligt. Schon zum zweiten Mal trafen sich die Teilnehmer, um einen idealtypischen, transparenten Workflow zu diskutieren, der es jeder wissenschaftlichen Institution ermöglichen soll, einen schnellen Überblick über die Arbeitsabläufe in einem OA-Verlag, über die nötigen Ressourcen und Kosten zu bekommen. Nähere Informationen zum Forschungsprojekt hier.

Tübingen University Press auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse 2018

Zum ersten Mal präsentierte sich der Tübinger Universitätsverlag als Aussteller auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse. Gemeinsam mit den anderen Verlagen der Arbeitsgemeinschaft Universitätsverlage stellte TUP an einem größeren Stand in Halle 4.2 aus; 12 Titel, darunter auch einige Veröffentlichen des Schwesterlabels Tübingen Library Publishing, zeigten das Programm des neuen Verlags. Neben einer Dissertation, Titeln mit Schwerpunkten in Ethik, Philosophie und Archäologie wurde auch die Publikationsreihe des SFB 2017 „RessourcenKulturen“ gezeigt.
