LOSS: The Politics of Mourning
Edited by David L. Eng and David Kazanjian
Plumbing the cultural and political implications of loss, the contributors - political theorists, film and literary critics, museum curators, feminists, psychoanalysts, and AIDS activists - expose the humane and productive possibilities in the workings of witness, memory, and melancholy. The subjects of their essays range from the Irish Famine and the Ottoman Turkish slaughter of the Armenians to the aftermath of the Vietnam War and apartheid in South Africa, problems of partial immigration and assimilation, AIDS, and the re-envisioning of leftist movements.
