Abstract

In these times the processes of poverty and social inequality have increased, as well as the scenarios of violence and death that involve people, the planet and life itself. The destructive features of the late international capitalist order have placed the life-death relationship at the center of social, humanistic, ecological and artistic discussion. This book invites us to rethink the contemporary world through the discussion on biopolitics, necropolitics, juvenicide and narcoculture, and offers an analysis of the conformation of the features that emphasize the inequalities, distinctive of some sectors of the middle and upper classes.

Abstract

»Frieden schaffen« ist das gemeinsame große Ziel vieler internationaler Akteure in Kriegs- und Krisengebieten. In der Praxis sind sie jedoch mit unterschiedlichsten Aufgaben betraut. Basierend auf qualitativen Interviews mit zurückgekehrten Praktiker_innen entwickelt Julika Bake ein vielschichtiges, dichtes Bild des Interventionsalltags. Sie zeigt auf, wie sich Angehörige verschiedener Berufsfelder in ihren Erzählungen über die Arbeit vor Ort positionieren, und geht der Frage nach, inwieweit die Unterscheidung von Intervenierenden in die Kategorien »zivil« und »militärisch« zu einem besseren Verständnis von internationalen Interventionen beiträgt.

Abstract

Grand Theft Auto, Battlefield, Counterstrike – more and more, violence in computer games is becoming the subject of heated discussion. But what emotional experiences does the playful use of virtual violence make possible? Through participato observation in online games and at LAN parties and analyses of interviews, magazines, and videos, Christopher Bareither presents in detail how millions of people can take pleasure from that which would shock others. By refraining from judgmental cliches, this ethnographic study is able to provide a decisive contribution to a debate at the crossroads of popular culture, politics, and the public sphere.

Abstract

Racist police checks are part of everyday life in Europe. They make it dramatically visible who is not considered a fellow citizen. While much of the dominance society finds this racist practice normal, more and more people are no longer prepared to accept it without resistance. The volume brings together scientific, artistic and activist contributions to the social backgrounds and modes of action of racial profiling and the possibilities of intersectional anti-racist resistance. The focus is on Switzerland, supplemented by perspectives from authors who are familiar with the German context.

Abstract

How were accounts of war told in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern era? The contributions to this volume pursue this question in an innovative way through the combination of historical and literary methodologies. With the aid of this interdisciplinary approach, the texts examine storytelling practices and strategies which dissolved genre barriers between factual and fictional texts, thereby expanding insights with regard to their presentation of experience. This volume is not only a pioneering work of cultural studies research, but also an example of successful and productive interdisciplinary collaboration.
