Subject: FQS 4(2) "Subjectivity and Reflexivity in Qualitative
Research II" online
I would like to inform you that FQS 4(2) -- Subjectivity and Reflexivity
in Qualitative Research II -- is available at
http://www.qualitative-research.net/fqs/fqs-e/inhalt3-02-e.htm for Part
We hope that this most extensive collection on subjectivity and
reflexivity in qualitative research thus far will promote further
understanding and initiate discussions -- whether one agrees with or is
critical against it. This hope is supported by the fact that authors
from various disciplines and nations joined this adventure and gave
insights from their practices and knowledge. Of course, everyone is
invited to join us in these reflection and discussion processes at FQS
also in the future!

This announcement is being sent to a number of lists. Please accept our apologies for duplicate postings.
Please direct any questions about the site to the email address provided below not to the poster.
Courage, Patriotism, Community Web Site Debuts on Library of Congress website
In honor of Memorial Day and in celebration of the American spirit, the Library of Congress is launching a new Web site highlighting its collections of veterans stories, patriotic music and community life. The new site, called Courage, Patriotism, Community, is accessible at http://www.loc.gov/courage.
Courage, Patriotism, Community comprises three Web presentations: Experiencing War: Stories from the Veterans History Project; Patriotic Melodies: Selections from I Hear America Singing; and Community Roots: Selections from the Local Legacies Project.
Experiencing War (http://www.loc.gov/warstories) features selected stories from the Librarys Veterans History Project in the American Folklife Center. Created by an act of Congress in 2000, the Veterans History Project provides veterans and the civilians who supported them the opportunity to record for posterity their wartime experiences. These poignant stories, which reflect the Web sites theme of courage, patriotism and community, are told through video, audio and written personal accounts from 21 veterans and civilians. They include such stories as that of James Walsh, veteran of the Korean War, who describes the numbing cold and horrifying scenes he endured with the 25th Infantry. Also included are photographs, diaries and scrapbooksall digitized and presented on the Web site. This initial release of personal narratives will be followed by many more from the 7,000 collections the Veterans History Project has received to date.
Patriotic Melodies (http://www.loc.gov/patrioticmusic) illustrates the close connection between patriotism, music, and the expression of the American spirit; it features some of the nations most beloved patriotic tunes as well as the story behind the creation of each melody. The 26 initial selections include national songs like The Star Spangled Banner, America and My Country Tis of Thee; military theme songs like The Army Goes Rolling Along, Anchors Aweigh and The Marines Hymn; and music like Over There and Yankee Doodle Boy drawn from musical theater. A trip to the Web site will allow visitors to turn the pages of Aaron Coplands Fanfare for the Common Man, listen to Kate Smith sing God Bless America, and learn interesting factssuch as the title of George M. Cohans renowned song, Youre a Grand Old Flag, which was originally titled Youre a Grand Old Rag.
Community Roots (http://www.loc.gov/folklife/roots) documents Americas local festivals, community events and other grassroots activities. The events selected for this presentation come from the larger Local Legacies collectiona joint project of the Library of Congress and the U.S. Congress that was initiated during the Librarys bicentennial celebration in 2000 to document the nations multicultural traditions at the turn of the 20th century. For the purpose of the online presentation, one local tradition has been selected to represent each state, the District of Columbia, the territories and trusts. These include Buccaneer Days in Texas, which celebrates a time in history when pirate ships sailed the Gulf waters, and the Worlds Largest Pancake Breakfastserving some 40,000in Springfield, Mass. Viewed as a whole, Community Roots highlights the ways in which Americans celebrate their diverse cultural backgrounds.
The Library of Congress is the largest repository of human knowledge in the history of the world. During the last decade, the Library took advantage of the power of the Internet and the unparalleled resources of its collections and curators to become the leading provider of free noncommercial educational content on the World Wide Web. Its award-winning Web site is accessible at http://www.loc.gov. From baseball cards to presidential diaries, from Edisons first films to Mathew Bradys Civil War photographs, more than 8 million items are now available online showcasing the creativity and courage of the American people.

NINCH COPYRIGHT TOWN MEETING REPORTS AVAILABLE "Copyright for Artists and their Public" Cleveland Museum of Art: April 12, 2003 http://www.ninch.org/copyright/2003/cleveland.report.html
Full and summary reports are now available on the 22nd NINCH Copyright Town Hall Meeting hosted April 12, 2003 by the Cleveland Museum of Art and sponsored by the Center for Law, Technology and the Arts, Case Western Reserve University School of Law.
"Copyright for Artists and their Public: Artists' Rights and Art's Rights," divided into three parts: an expert review of copyright law and its evolution in the digital age, a discussion of the copyright and contract issues artists face when they go to work for, or sell work or rights to, organizations, and an exploration of the legality and consequences of art that appropriates work that is copyright protected.
June Besek, Executive Director of the Kernochan Center for Law, Media and the Arts at Columbia Law School, masterfully reviewed copyright law, emphasizing among other topics: the distinction between ownership of an object and ownership of its intellectual property rights; the number of rights included in the copyright bundle; moral rights (generally downplayed in the US); the range of exceptions to copyright control and the particular challenges of the digital landscape, the legal response to date and what may be expected down the road. While some of the more over-protective elements of the DMCA were being countered in new proposed legislation, June Besek saw the future in a combination of enforcement of the law and development of new business models.
Turning to the intertwined issues of copyright, contracts and work for hire, Alberta Arthurs gave a rich contextual introduction to the conflicts, invoking the 2002 American Assembly report on this topic. Legal scholar, Maureen O'Rourke, powerfully demonstrated the situation of the individual creator in the post-Tasini digital world, in which corporate publishers force creators to give up all rights for the same price paid a few years ago for print-only rights. With copyright law offering little protection and contract law favoring large industrial players, O'Rourke proposed more collective action along the lines of the National Writers Union to redress current grievances.
O'Rourke's legal perspective was given heft and color by photographer Richard Kelly, who said he spent more time negotiating contracts than taking photographs, but felt lucky when he could negotiate, as most publishers cannot afford the time for individual negotiation. Artists needed a just and balanced regime in which they were compensated for electronic rights to their work. Kelly expressed dismay that the legal hurdles facing artists are not discussed in art schools, and noted the need for artists to become educated about their rights.
Attorney Deborah Coleman followed with an informed discussion of a museum's perspectives. She registered the frequent conflict between educational mission and economic survival and the need to rely on contracts in a sea of legal uncertainty. The Cleveland Museum was concerned about the integrity of images and their fate in the world but was not satisfied by the efficacy of legal or technical protection measures to date. In questions, Alberta Arthurs expressed her disappointment that the goals and balance of copyright were currently being displaced and needed re-adjustment. She particularly felt it was difficult to organize the many voices of the arts community into a unified viewpoint to match that of the corporate world (which, though often disparate, was more unified and forceful on these issues).
In the third section of the meeting, allowable access and re-use of artistic work online was examined by a lawyer/musician, a new media musician and a photographer. Attorney Mark Avsec, recounting his own experience defending himself against the charge of misappropriation, outlined the "test" of the elements needed to prove infringement as proclaimed by the landmark 1946 case, Arnstein v. Porter. Although supporting copyright's monopoly, Avsec questioned whether copyright was successfully serving its purpose today. This challenge was illustrated in style by Mark Gunderson, who demonstrated the signature music collage format of his audio art band, The Evolution Control Committee (ECC). Giving full credit to their sources, ECC's work (in for example playing radically edited sections of Dan Rather's CBS Evening News reports against AC/DC in the "Rocked by Rape" piece) was probably illegal art, but should it be allowed, encouraged or squashed?
Photographer Walt Seng recounted his involvement in a case of unauthorized commercial use of his photographs and concluded that strong and clear copyright education was very badly needed and could save many people's time in unnecessary lawsuits.
In a final discussion about international law and copyright, the utility of registering copyright and creators' ability to choose their own licenses through the new Creative Commons organization, there was final agreement that artists need to collaborate and to educate and be educated further about copyright issues, especially in the digital world of today.
