[ Neue Texte ]

As an Anonyma of the kakanian Editor's Team posted, the latest issue of the online-Journal "Spaces of Identity", featuring the third and last in their 2004 series on networks, is now online.
Though the Articles were published in a close Cooperation with "Kakanien revisited", the German-language versions of series contributions will be available at the beginning of 2005 in the NCS/NKW-section of "kk.rev" (like so many others from our big Conference 2003).
Here is an Abstract of the Editors:

In THE TEXTURE OF THE RETINA: INTERTWINING PATTERNS OF PERCEPTION IN THE CITY, Katalin Teller locates different patterns of spatially organized perception in Andrei Bely's "Petersburg" and Ingo Schulze's "33 Moments of Happiness" and demonstrates how Petersburg is imagined in the older text as a heterotopic space and in Schulze's more recent one as a rhizomatic city.

THE DOBRIVLIANY AFFAIR OF 1886 is the subject of Andriy Zayarnyuk's contribution. In this case-study from the Galician countryside, Zayarnyuk shows how A NODAL APPROACH TO CONSCIOUSNESS FORMATION calls into question existing historical narratives about the Ukrainian national movement and retraces the complexity of relationships between intellectuals and peasants.

Natalia Shostak takes us THROUGH NETWORKS AND ORDEAL NARRATIVES, OR MAKING MEANING OF ONE'S DISPLACEMENT. In sharing with us a female experience of RECENT LABOUR MIGRATION FROM WESTERN UKRAINE, Shostak underscores how the meanings of a person's journey, both in terms of geography and personal growth, are not only externalized through, but comprehended in narrative and re-evaluated in subsequent conversations against these networks of relationships and networks of meaning.

The volume's final contribution also deals with the theoretical challenges of doing empirically based displacement ethnography. In RECONCEPTUALIZING NETWORKS THROUGH GREEK-AMERICAN RETURN MIGRATION, Anastasia Christou reflects on the processes of CONSTRUCTING IDENTITIES, NEGOTIATING THE ETHNOS AND MAPPING DIASPORAS in 40 life-stories of second-generation Greek-Americans who made a conscious decision to relocate from the country in which they were born to the country of their ancestral heritage.
