This leads to a broader discussion of the politics of emotion and happiness as posited by Sara Ahmed, who examines happiness as an individual’s responsibility in the fashioning of a “portfolio life,” and of Karen Barad’s concepts of intra-action and agential realism in the context of the performance of ethics. Depicting humans as “mobile assets,” the play invites a discussion of how contemporary British theatre investigates the discourse of human capital in late capitalist self-improvement culture, where the responsibility for people’s well-being has been shifted away from society and towards the individual.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Entanglements : Transaction and Intra-action with the Devil in How to Hold Your Breath</dcterms:title> <dc:contributor>Boll, Julia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-10-25T09:44:26Z</dcterms:available> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/58903"/> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-10-25T09:44:26Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
