2018 (English)In: Emotion, Affective Practices, and the Past in the Present / [ed] Laurajane Smith, Margare Wetherell and Gary Campbell, London: Routledge, 2018, p. 25-38Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter describes the search for lost soldiers as an affective practice, which, following Margaret Wetherell. It shows that how discourse and physical work are entangled, and how emotion and affect play roles in the actual work and when the work is displayed. The goal of the activity is to find, identify and bury soldiers, but also to spread knowledge of the war. The search for lost soldiers is perhaps first and foremost hard work. The Russia-wide voluntary search movement carries out search work through relatively autonomous units in all areas of the country that saw direct fighting. The prominence of the war memory in contemporary Russia is an important background for the search movement. In an album called 'The Price of Victory' on a social network site, A. has posted pictures from the search, including unusually explicit photos of human remains.
