The year has just begun.“ (Vanessa Gebhardts Freeletics-Profil) Das Versprechen eines stets zu optimierenden Trainings- und Körperzustands beinhaltet ein aufschiebendes, verzögerndes

Bilder guter Trauer

Neue Sichtbarkeiten der Trauer in der Psychologie, Philosophie und Fotografie

Inga Anderson

Der erste Tod ist der Tod des Anderen. Menschsein heißt deshalb immer auch trauern. Nach dem Sterben und dem toten Körper rückt die Trauer ins Blickfeld der kulturwissenschaftlichen Thanatologie.
Dieses Buch zeigt Verbindungslinien zwischen drei Feldern auf, die zunächst weit voneinander entfernt zu liegen scheinen: psychologisch-psychiatrische Diskussionen um Trauer und psychische Gesundheit, Ethiken der Trauer, die die poststrukturalistische Philosophie und die Dekonstruktion entwerfen, sowie fototheoretische und fotokünstlerische Positionen, die einen Umgang mit Verlust suchen. An den jeweiligen Bildern guter Trauer entscheidet sich, ob Trauer als gemeinschaftsstiftend oder subversiv, als das Verhältnis zum verlorenen Anderen trennend oder bewahrend, als Erinnerung ermöglichend oder unterlaufend verstanden wird. Durch die historische Tiefenschärfe der Analysen tritt die politische Relevanz der Trauer für die Gegenwart hervor.

Fernsehzuschauer: [T]he discourse of TV flow is ‚present‘ in the sense that the viewer can enter into a dialogue with the screen. Yet the broadcast flow is also vanishing, a constant disappearing of what has been shown. The electron scan builds up two images of each frame shown, the lines interlacing to from a

The Representation of the Barwa in Zakes Mda’s She Plays with the Darkness

that inevitably fail to coincide with the present. The changes in a postcolonial village are less marked perhaps but the passage of time can be read there too, and the village in Mda’s novel is no exception. The working of time, though, is most graphically illustrated in the novel in relation to the

Reading Our Ruins

A Rough Sketch

reckoning and acknowledgment—a witnessing. I scour these ruins in the hope of a more complete vocabulary of past, future, present, of me, of us, of other, of Kenya, of Africa, of the Commonwealth, of the world. You see, don’t you, that the prevailing world lexicon is incapable of naming and bearing all our

EHCS is dedicated to understanding the emotions as culturally and temporally-situated phenomena, and to exploring the role of emotion in shaping human experience and action by individuals, groups, societies and cultures.

EHCS welcomes theoretically-informed work from a range of historical, cultural and social domains. The journal aims to illuminate (1) the ways emotion is conceptualized and understood in different temporal or cultural settings, from antiquity to the present, and across the globe; (2) the impact of emotion on human action and in processes of change; and (3) the influence of emotional legacies from the past on current social, cultural and political practices.

EHCS is interested in multidisciplinary approaches (both qualitative and quantitative), from history, art, literature, languages, music, politics, sociology, cognitive sciences, cultural studies, environmental humanities, religious studies, linguistics, philosophy, psychology, and related disciplines. The journal also invites papers that interrogate the methodological and critical problems of exploring emotions in historical, cultural and social contexts, and the relation between past and present in the study of feelings, passions, sentiments, emotions and affects. Finally, Emotions also accepts theoretically-informed and reflective scholarship that explores how scholars access, uncover, construct and engage with emotions in their own scholarly practice.

Following an initial review process by the editors, EHCS sends acceptable submissions to two expert independent readers outside the author’s home institution, employing a double-blind review procedure.

EHCS is published on behalf of the Society for the History of Emotions.

The curators were interested in creating both sacred and liveable space; a site that invites the respectful commemoration of the experiences of apartheid witnesses while also offering secure and accessible public space; a place of refuge and a source of pride that appeals to diverse

However, the poetry’s practice developed—in the past as in the present—in close proximity with changes in technology, and nabaṭī poetry has been printed since printing presses became accessible to Gulf poets.

/address is both deeply self-reflexive as well as concerned with larger historical and current questions through the prism of literal and figurative “ruins,” where ruins are regarded as sites of dialogue between past and present. Taking our cue from Owuor’s paper, we asked authors to experiment with such
