Download Wie wird die „Männliche Menopause“ online-kommunikativ by Silvio Schwartz PDF

By Silvio Schwartz

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Frauenstudien / Gender-Forschung, be aware: 2,3, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Veranstaltung: Die männliche Menopause - Zeitverständnis und Geschlechterverhältnis, Sprache: Deutsch, summary: In dieser Arbeit soll die online-kommunikative Praxis zur Deutungskategorie „männliche Menopause“ untersucht werden und damit das Sprechen vom Altern des Mannes und dessen Bewertung und Einordnung. Im Mittelpunkt stehen die Fragen, welche Begriffe dabei genutzt werden und welche Vorstellungen und Annahmen damit verknüpft werden. Dies zielt darauf, die dahinter stehenden Normalitätsvorstellungen zu erkunden. Das „männliche Klimakterium“ eignet sich aufgrund der als eher gering einzuschätzenden Bekanntheit in der breiten deutschen Öffentlichkeit für diese Fragestellungen. So bildet es das Spannungsfeld zwischen der von Hofer festgestellten Verbreitung durch die Pharmaindustrie einerseits und einer möglicherweise marginalisierten Lebenserfahrung andererseits. Hofers Arbeit bezieht sich auf den deutschsprachigen Raum, daher sollen auch hier nur deutschsprachige Positionen einbezogen werden. Dafür werden Webseiten herangezogen, die über eine Google-Suche zu diversen Suchbegriffen aufgefunden werden. Dahinter steckt die Überzeugung, dass ein Anteil der am Diskurs Beteiligten ebenfalls zunächst eine Suchmaschine nutzen, um zu web pages gelangen, die sie für ihre place als correct erachten.
Im Folgenden werde ich den Umgang mit Texten aus dem web skizzieren und aufzeigen, welche Unterschiede und Gemeinsamkeiten mit Print-Publikationen bestehen. Es werden außerdem Schwierigkeiten aufgeführt, die sich bei Online-Publikationen für diese Arbeit ergeben. Anschließend werden die Analysemethoden vorgestellt, die hier zur Anwendung kommen werden. In einem weiteren Punkt wird das Feld der Medizin im net – die sogenannte „E-Health“ – sowie dessen Einordnung vorgestellt. Der kommende Abschnitt behandelt die „männliche Menopause“ aus medizinhistorischer und kulturwissenschaftlicher Sicht und anschließend werden einige Webseiten vorgestellt und analysiert.
