Introduction: Towards a Politics of Scale Janelle Blankenship and Tobias Nagl screenIng sMall europe an natIons: a dIscursIve pre-HIstory In The Cinema of Small Nations Mette Hjort and Duncan Petrie note that some of the small nations they feature in their volume “have been producing films since the silent era, but the idea of a specifically national cinema gained currency across the world in the 1970s and 1980s as part of the wider transformations that have refashioned global relations over the last thirty years.”1 Approaches to small cinemas rarely give

134 The Politics of Design in Postcolonial Kenya Daniel Magaziner Two Landscapes of the Imagination One landscape was small. Imagine a house set within a grove of trees; a stream bubbling nearby; a tiled-roof muffled the sounds of rain, providing a suitable atmosphere for listening to music, or reading, or maybe having a bottle of beer. It was a small house, wood floors, one bedroom with a single bed, covered with a leopard’s skin; more skins on the floor provided a soft cushion for bare feet – and the right ‘African’ atmosphere. It was quiet.1 The other

Beans and Politics in the Forest An inter view with Katie Slocombe, by Katja Liebal Figure 13: Katie Slocombe in the Kibale Forest, Uganda; © Katie Slocombe Katie Slocombe graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from the University of Nottingham before moving to the University of St An- drews and completing her PhD on the vocal communication of chimpan- zees.

184 Cheick Diallo: Design between Politics and Poetics Kerstin Pinther, Alexandra Weigand Cheick Diallo’s Fauteuil Mo (Fig. 1), whose characteristic net-like surface also inspired our book cover, is made of steel rods wound with bright red nylon thread. The rods are reinforced steel, found everywhere on the construc- tion sites in Bamako, Mali, while the chair’s sculptural aesthetic quotes the wooden fish traps used along the banks of the River Niger. The Mo Chair thus not only stands for a very special form of material morphosis, but also distils the

Politics of Touch Körper, Berührung, Kritik Fanti Baum Es gibt nicht »den« Körper, es gibt nicht »das« Berühren, es gibt nicht »die« res extensa (Jean-Luc Nancy)1 Berührung: eine Geste, abwesend und zugleich doch da, spürbar hinterlässt sie kaum Spuren, ist sie im selben Maße eine bewusste Entscheidung, gerade nicht zu fassen, zu greifen, zu packen (oder gar zu verstehen), sondern zu berühren. Die Be- rührung steht gewöhnlich auf der Seite des Sinnlichen, und zwischen res cogitans und res extensa würde sie klar den Phänomenen der körperlichen Erscheinungen

Chapter 1: From the Truth about Politics to the Politics of Truth In the Introduction, the themes that will guide this discussion were framed with reference to the similarities and differences between poststructuralist and post-foundationalist political theory. This chapter will develop and increasingly specify the key questions within these themes that will guide the rest of the book. It will focus on the famous exchange between Chomsky and Foucault in 1971 as this helps establish what is at stake when one invokes truth in the name of resistance (Chomsky

161 Voice Politics: Establishing the ‘Loud/Speaker’ in the Political Communication of National Socialism CORNELIA EPPING-JÄGER In the following essay, I want to make a case for my thesis that in Germany during the years 1932-1936, a large media experiment was conceived and conducted by the NSDAP as a result of which— combined with the networked dynamics of technological research and the political system—the dispositive ‘loud/speaker’1 was estab- lished as an apparatus of discourses that was centered around the mass-communicative distribution of the

2 State of Research In this chapter, I look at the two main research areas that this book draws on and contributes to: political participation, and the Internet and politics. As there are comparatively few cultural anthropologists working in either area, this chapter outlines the potential contribution that an anthropological gaze can make.1 The cultural anthropological perspective differs here to political or media studies perspectives insofar as it sees the everyday of the users/actors as central, and is therefore only indirectly interested in media
