This bibliography provides the reader with a comprehensive reference tool that will enhance understanding of methodological issues and enable the user to employ research methods appropriate to their subject of study. It also provides accounting historians a comprehensive data base for the development of papers addressing methodological issues in an accounting history context. Access to this type of resource is particularly crucial to the development of accounting history research since the number of papers dealing with methodological issues published in accounting history literature is very small. Hence the references in this bibliography are drawn from the literature of general history, economic and business history, legal and social history and philosophy. The scope and range of its contents are broad – references are taken from texts as well as papers published in over 450 journals.

Der Band ist ein Beitrag zur Geschichte von Kommunikationsformen, einem neueren Zweig der historischen Pragmatik. Die Autoren sind Germanisten, Anglisten, Romanisten, Didaktiker und Psychologen. Mit Schwerpunkten in drei historischen Perioden (Mittelalter, 17. und 20. Jahrhundert) und bezogen auf verschiedene Sprachen (Deutsch, Englisch, Französisch, Spanisch) befassen sich die Beiträge mit Tradition und Innovation in Kommunikationsformen des Erzählens, Informierens, Werbens, Lehrens und Lernens. Themen des Bandes sind: mittelalterliche Dialogdarstellungen und Reisebeschreibungen, Formen der Information und des Infotainments in neuen Medien des 17. Jahrhunderts (den ersten deutschen Zeitungen und den Straßenballaden der englischen Revolutionszeit 1640-1650). In unser Jahrhundert führen die Untersuchungen zur Entwicklung der französischen Autowerbung (Text und Bild) in den letzten 100 Jahren und zur Entwicklung der Fernsehkommentare in Deutschland seit den 60er Jahren. Einen weiteren Schwerpunkt bilden die neuesten Entwicklungen der digitalen Medien. Hier zeigt sich besonders deutlich, wie mediale Innovationen neue Möglichkeiten der Kommunikation eröffnen, dabei aber immer gleichzeitig auch neue kommunikative und sprachliche Aufgaben und Probleme stellen, die von Produzenten und Nutzern oft erst allmählich und in kleinen Schritten bewältigt werden. Bemerkenswerte Veränderungen der Kommunikationsformen ermöglicht die Nutzung neuer Medien im Bereich des Lehrens und Lernens, der in diesem Band anhand von Beispielen aus dem akademischen Unterricht und dem Fremdsprachenunterricht an Schule und Hochschule behandelt wird.

Das Thema Materialität wird innerhalb feministischer Forschungen in den letzten Jahren erneut diskutiert. Vor dem Hintergrund des material turn widmet sich der Band aktuellen Auseinandersetzungen mit Materialität und Materialismus. Dabei sollen zum einen bestehende Konfliktfelder zwischen Diskurs und Materialität sowie Struktur, Handlungsfähigkeit und Subjektivität aus feministischer Perspektive aufgezeigt werden. Zum anderen strebt der Band an, Potenziale einer verbindenden Perspektive auf 'neue' und 'alte' Konzeptionen von Materialität und Materialismen innerhalb feministischer Theorien und Praxen kritisch auszuloten.
