Synopsis

Most theories of material culture, transnationalism, and globalization have failed to incorporate a focus on emotions even though an increasing number of scholars in recent years have explored emotion-dense processes. This book fills the gap and examines how "emotions" can be theorized and serve as a useful analytical tool for understanding the interrelated mobility of humans, objects, and images. Through diverse, ethnographically rich and theoretically grounded case studies, these chapters offer new perspectives that relate migration, material culture, and emotions by addressing: the ways in which migrants and migrant artists express their emotions through objects and images in transnational contexts; the ways in which particular works of art, everyday objects, and artifacts evoke specific feelings in migrants and members of migrant communities; and the ways in which artists, academics, and policy makers may stimulate positive interaction between migrants and members of local communities.

Maruska Svasek is Senior Lecturer in the School of History and Anthropology, Queens University, Belfast. Her main research interests are emotional dynamics, migration, and art and artefacts. Recent publications include Human Mobility and Emotions: Ethnographies of Movement (ed., Routledge 2012), Anthropology, Art and Cultural Production (Pluto 2007), Postsocialism: Politics and Emotions in Central and Eastern Europe (ed., Berghahn Books 2006), and Mixed Emotions: Anthropological Studies of Feeling (co-ed., with Kay Milton, Berg 2005).
