Political Emotions explores the contributions that the study of discourses rhetoric and framing of emotion make to understanding the public sphere civil society and the political realm Tackling critiques on the opposition of the public and private spheres chapters in this volume examine why some sentiments are valued in public communication while others are judged irrelevant and consider how sentiments mobilize political trajectories br br Emerging from the work of the Public Feelings research group at the University of Texas Austin and cohering in a New Agendas in Communication symposium this volume brings together the work of young scholars from various areas of study including sociology gender studies anthropology art and new media The essays in this collection formulate new ways of thinking about the relations among the emotional the cultural and the political Contributors recraft familiar ways of doing critical work and bring forward new analyses of emotions in politics Their work expands understanding of the role of emotion in the political realm and will be influential in political communication political science sociology and visual and cultural studies, In this bold new work of cultural criticism Ann Cvetkovich develops a queer approach to trauma She argues for the importance of recognizing and archiving accounts of trauma that belong as much to the ordinary and everyday as to the domain of catastrophe Cvetkovich contends that the field of trauma studies limited by too strict a division between the public and the private has overlooked the experiences of women and queers Rejecting the pathologizing understandings of trauma that permeate medical and clinical discourses on the subject she develops instead a sex positive approach missing even from most

at the University of Texas at Austin She is the author of em Mixed Feelings Feminism Mass Culture and Victorian Sensationalism em, No description available, In i Depression A Public Feelings Project i Ann Cvetkovich seeks to understand why intellectuals activists professionals and other privileged people struggle with feelings of hopeless and self loathing She focuses particularly on those in academia where the pressure to succeed and the desire to find space for creative thinking and alternative worlds bump up against the harsh conditions of a ruthlessly competitive job market the shrinking power of the humanities and the corporatization of the university In her candid memoir Cvetkovich describes what it was like to move through the days as she finished her dissertation started a job and then completed a book for tenure Turning to critical essay she seeks to create new forms of writing and knowledge that don t necessarily follow the usual methods of cultural critique but instead come from affective experience ordinary life and alternative archives Across its different sections including the memoir the book crafts and it s no accident that crafting is one of its topics a cultural analysis that can adequately represent depression not as medical pathology but as a historical category a felt experience and a point of entry onto discussions not only about theory and contemporary culture but about how to live br br Ann Cvetkovich is Ellen C Garwood Centennial Professor of English and Professor of Women s and Gender Studies at the University of Texas Austin She is

tackling the tough issues of today she still gives us a book that feels totally timeless i Depression A Public Feeling i fills a gap that has morphed into a crater The book is as invaluable as it is enjoyable I found myself sighing throughout thinking Phew someone finally said that Kathleen Hanna of the bands Le Tigre Bikini Kill and the Julie Ruin br br A provocative addition to Ann Cvetkovich s eloquent writings on the archives of public feelings this book takes depression out of the space of the private into the complex politics of our time Weaving together memoir cultural and medical history and literary and theoretical discussion Cvetkovich experiments with and reflects on unconventional ways of writing about embodiment cognition and affect Along the way she offers myriad prescriptions small and large on how to cope with the daily effects of depression and how to heal the world Marianne Hirsch author of i The Generation of Postmemory Writing and Visual Culture after
