But how do we share them, get involved in an emotional way, or show them the right way? One framework for a kind of standard set of emotions is death. We will and can feel the appropriate way if we are exposed to the right environment (funerals) or watch other people conduct death rituals. Death rituals are scripted events that repeat certain visual elements that ensure us of what is going on and seem to enforce us to show (or pretend) emotions. My chapter will focus on a televised death ritual. In 2009 the German footballer Robert Enke committed suicide and his death and its circumstances were discussed broadly. Also a large ceremony was conducted for his funeral in Hannover’s football stadium. In addition it was broadcast live by five German television stations. This ultimate public display focused our view artificially on the most important aspects of this very ritual. Furthermore I analyse the relation of visual and acoustic elements of this ceremony and how they trigger collective emotions, establish references to practices common in football (e.g. singing and music); and how visual elements are connected to death and the discourse of mental illness. By doing this with a cultural sociological perspectiveI try to overcome explanations on mimetic processes or simple effects of collective effervescence in regard to events.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:title>Shared Collective Emotions? : The Funeral of Robert Enke as a Public Event</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Meise, Nils</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-07-08T07:10:05Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/34"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/31385"/> <dcterms:issued>2014</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2015-07-08T07:10:05Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Meise, Nils</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
