  2. 2. Images of Work and Love : The Dynamics of Economy and Emotions on the Big Screen in Sweden and Mexico 1930–1955

    Author : Rosalía Guerrero Cantarell; Orsi Husz; Maths Isacson; Ann Ighe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Work; Romantic Love; Modernity; Emotional capital; Worthiness; Respectability; Ekonomisk historia; Economic History;

    Abstract : This thesis studies the intertwinement of economy and emotions within the context of modernity. By investigating how work and romantic love interact in fiction films from the period 1930 to 1955, I seek to shed light on how two cultural practices that might normally be assumed to belong to separate dimensions of life – the economic and the emotional – are actually closely connected to each other.

    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Mesoamerica; Archaeology; World-Systems theory; World-Systems analysis; Nested Networks; West Mexico; Central Mexico; Early Classic; Epiclassic; Early Postclassic;

    Abstract : As world-systems theory came to the fore in archaeology during the 1980s and 1990s, it became evident that the analysis of pre-capitalist core/periphery relations required modifications of this theory for its further use in the discipline. As a result, the comparative approach for world-systems analysis (Chase-Dunn and Hall 1997) discerned four interaction networks that defined pre-capitalist world-systems. READ MORE
