This volume focuses on emotions of people in
Southeast Europe. Grief and sadness take on different forms
of expression. In the era of socialist rule laughter could
express political resistance; for labour migrants visiting
their country of origin evokes feelings of being at home.
Cities attract visitors by appealing to emotions and people
try to relive times of national glory by historical
re-enactments. Gossip is a means of expressing emotions,
smells and rituals become expressions of remembered
emotions. Emotions are a factor researchers must always
take seriously, both of the people studied and their own.
