Predictors of Gaming Behavior among Military Peacekeepers – Exploring the Role of Boredom and Loneliness in Relation to Gaming Problems

. 2008 ), mental health problems are still prevalent in combat veterans after returning home from service, especially drinking problems and symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) ( Brief et al. 2013 ). Returning from war to a normal life may be difficult and predispose veterans to both boredom and loneliness ( Mæland and Brunstad 2009 ; Shay 2002 ), which may in turn put veterans at risk for developing addictive behaviors ( Shay 2002 ). Alcohol misuse following deployment has been reported in 12%–36% of veterans in the US ( Burnett-Zeigler et al. 2011

Staging Subjectivity: Love and Loneliness in the Scene of Painting with Charlotte Salomon and Edvard Munch


This paper proposes a conversation between Charlotte Salomon (1917–43) and Edvard Munch that is premised on a reading of Charlotte Salomon’s monumental project of 784 paintings forming a single work Leben? oder Theater? (1941–42) as itself a reading of potentialities for painting, as a staging of subjectivity in the work of Edvard Munch, notably in his assembling paintings to form the Frieze of Life. Drawing on both Mieke Bal’s critical concept of “preposterous history” and my own project of “the virtual feminist museum” as a framework for tracing resonances that are never influences or descent in conventional art historical terms, this paper traces creative links between the serial paintings of these two artists across the shared thematic of loneliness and psychological extremity mediated by the legacy of Friedrich Nietzsche.
