      Aging and Death in Foklore

    • Geser, Hans [1998] (University of Zürich, Switzerland)
      "Virtually Yours Forever"
      Death memorials and Remembrance Sites in the WWW

      Geser analysis death memorials as significant objects of societal and macrocultural studies. He suggests that the impact of the internet on death may be more significant than on most other aspects of human existence, like birth, marriage and divorce. The actual web memorials and remembrance sites he sees as embryonic manifestations of a new "post-modern" discourse about human death, because it may overcome the tendency of "modern" societies to marginalize the topic from everyday life by constraining it into institutional (mostly religious) enclaves still dominated by ossified premodern ritualizations.

    • Leimer, Chris Tina [1996]
      Funeral and Memorial Practices in a New Era
      Funeral customs are inherently conservative, traditional. There are several factors that contribute to keeping funeral customs from changing much: our beliefs about the afterlife and the relationship between the living and the dead, the desire to respect, honor and remember the deceased, the mystery and fear surrounding the unknown, and the disruption and grief that occurs when somebody dies. But in these days funeral rites do change rather fast in some societies and Leimer suggests that this is a reflection of dramatic material, behavioral, and/or ideological changes in the broader society. To explain this phenomena she identifies five trends that are typical of all of our new rites: personalization of funeral rites and memorials, participation, informalization, secularization and inclusiveness.

    • Levins, Hoag [2002]

Details superstitions such as covering mirrors, stopping clocks on the hour of death, and the invention of coffin alarms. A coffin alarm was a bell attached to the headstone with a chain that led down into the coffin to a ring that went around the finger of the deceased. So, if you were to wake up and find yourself accidentally buried, you could pull on the chain and ring the bell in the cemetery yard.

The sacred wedding and the dramatic funeral compliment each other in character and content, for the ceremonies are both interwoven with ritual meaning and overlapping rites.

    • Fegan, Michael
      Postmodernism
      A very un-postmodern attempt to give an all encompassing definition of postmodern theory. “Postmodernism calls into question enlightenment values such as rationality, truth, and progress, arguing that these merely serve to secure the monolithic structure of modern capitalistic society by concealing or excluding any forces that might challenge its cultural dominance. To counter this hegemony, postmodernism draws upon the poststructuralist understanding of representations or signifiers as embedded within a matrix of differential relationships to other signifiers (rather than as standing in a correlative relationship to actual objects) in order to open up space for difference within and against the abstraction and uniformity of modernism. Thus the postmodern attitude tends to value heterogeneity over purity, diversity over unity, the local over the universal, and popular over elite culture or high art.”

    • Hartman, Paul V. (Univ. of Georgia, USA)
      What is "Postmodernism"?
      He defines the postmodern era by “the emergence of the postindustrial information economy, replacing the previous classes of aristocracy, middle class, and working class with the new paradigm: information elite, middle class, and underclass.” A supprising ‘class analysis’ which has to be true, because “postmodernism itself is, of course, True”.

This “vulgar engineer” allowes himself to break a lot of the rules that people in the humanities usually have to play by, since nobody expects an engineer to be literate. s. For Chip it is clear to me that the humanities are not going to emerge from the jungle on their own. He thinks that the task of outreach is left to those of us who retain some connection, however tenuous, to what we laughingly call reality. "We have to go into the jungle after them and rescue what we can. Just remember to hang on to your sense of humor and don't let them intimidate you."
