marxistisch orientierten Ära Stuart Halls – sowie in den ohnehin weniger politisierten deutschen Kulturwissenschaften etwa mit einer post politics-Situation zu tun? Gemeint ist eine Situation, in der »the political terrain to the sphere of consensual governing and policy-making« verengt wird, »centered on a technical, managerial and consensual administration (policing) of environmental, social, economic or other domains« (Swyngedouw 2011: 77). Entwerfen analog dazu nicht auch die Kulturwissenschaften ihre Theorien als Rahmenmo- delle einer Konsensbildung, mit der

A1. ʻBody Politicsʼ in Ancient China: Discourses and Implications INTRODUCTION That Chinese political thought is primarily a sort of ‘body politics’ is nowhere more evident than in the fact that Chinese thinkers take the ‘cultivation of the body’ (xiushen, 修身) as the starting point to- ward, and basis of, the management of both the state and the world. In the Chinese tradition, the transformation of the world starts from the transformation of oneself, which begins with the moral cultivation of one’s body. It is not overly far-fetched to say that the Chinese

6 Politics of the Future – Riots of the Now Temporal Horizons of Youth in Upheavals in England and Guinea Joschka Philipps intRoduction A great deal of politics seems to be about the future, and much of the future seems to be managed by politics. Political networks develop narratives and ordering mechanisms that negotiate continuity and change in societies, and attempt to manage the contingency created by an entirely elusive future. In functionally differentiated societies, Luhmann (2002: 151) suggests that the political system creates the impression

Forms and Functions of Political Humor in Arab Societies Historical and Contemporary Perspectives SABINE DAMIR-GEILSDORF & STEPHAN MILICH1 “Cannot install ‘freedom’! Please remove ‘Mubarak’ and try again” CITED IN SALEM/TAIRA 2012 In 1964, the francophone Egyptian writer Albert Cossery published his novel La Violence et la Derision2 whose first English translation appeared shortly before the Egyptian uprising started in January 2011. The three fictive 1 We wish to express our deep gratitude

147 Political Information and Religious Skepticism in Early Modern Italy FEDERICO BARBIERATO The seventeenth century saw the unexpected revival of the classical debate con- cerning the theory of the political imposture of religion. The rapid reception of this intellectual conceit facilitated the subsequent introduction of a number of heterodox doctrines that came to typify religious dissent in that period. At the - ded within the social fabric. But by the end of the seventeenth century, its image had been radically transformed. Religion came to be considered

Music, Affect and Memory Politics in Post-Yugoslav Space 1 ANA HOFMAN In the Slovenian newspaper Delo on June 7, during the second festival of post-Yugoslav activist choirs2, Zdenko Matoz quotes Gregor Tomc, a soci- ologist and member of the Yugoslav punk band Pankrti, as saying that choral singing is, in any case, outdated. It is neither cultural resistance nor political radicalism. Newly founded post- Yugoslav choirs, he goes on, bring nothing new, unexpected, or disturbing: »their activities are pure nostalgic escapism, which is itself bearable

144 | Political Participation in the Digital Age means, and there are a lot of new kind of technologies that will enhance this process. So, we don’t know where it’s gonna end, but we’re already that far along that we have to start catching up politically, you know, systematically, to that new way of thinking.130 8.4 Political Participation in the Digital Age After elaborating on information and communication practices as prerequisites for political participation, this final analysis chapter concentrates on political par- ticipation. The chapter starts with an

8 Talking about Civic Engagement: “The Dirty Game of Politics” In this chapter, I will show how the interviewees talk about becoming engaged with the Yisra’el Beitenu party. Enjoying full political rights, I assumed it was unlikely that the interviewees had faced legal barriers—in various empirical studies this is referred to as political opportunity structures (e.g. Fanning/ O’Boyle 2010; Fanning et al. 2010; Bloemraad 2006)—to become engaged; and the interviewees do not mention any legal restrictions either. However, previous empirical

Chapter 4: The Militant Subject of a Political Truth A potential problem with the view of critique and resistance developed in the previous chapters through the work of Foucault, Deleuze and Guattari is that as the philosophical ground is more firmly established so the political edge seems increasingly blunted. As the politics of truth leads us ever more into discussions of creativity we risk losing reference to the idea of truth itself and the motivational force that it has in animating practices of resistance. Although Badiou is not the only thinker to

Identity Politics as an Expression of European Citizenship Practice: Participation of Transnational Migrants in Local Political Conflicts MICHAEL JANOSCHKA Political Participation of Retired Migrants in Southern Spain and the Emergence of Local Political Conflicts The increasing migration of retired northern Europeans to the coastal regions of the Mediterranean, mainly to Spain, is a remarkable phenomenon within the con- text of European integration. In contrast to traditional labour migrants, the key protagonists of these movements can be characterised
