resumo

Quando os mortos estão mortos eles se tornam inexistentes? Esse campo de
indagação abre o seminário. As teorias são produzidas por dispositivos sociais,
históricos, culturais e nos informam sobre a nossa maneira de viver. Interessa
a autora investigar a experiência de luto como resistência dos mortos ao
esquecimento. Analisa romances, séries americanas de televisão e trabalhos
etnográficos como efeitos de um movimento que resiste, como intervenções pelas
quais os mortos falam. Lança mão dos contrastes em busca de algo que nos
informe sobre nós mesmos, e que não reduza a riqueza dos múltiplos sentidos do
luto a aspectos patológicos.

Palavras-chave: luto; esquecimento; resistência.

mourning no more - thinking with the deAd
AbstrAct

Would the dead become nonexistent after death? This field of investigation opens
the seminar. Theories are produced by social, historical and cultural devices
and provide information about our way of living. The authoress is interested in
discussing the mourning experience as a resistance of the dead to the sinking into
oblivion. She analyses novels, American TV series and ethnographic studies as
effects of a movement that resists, interventions through which dead people speak.
She also uses contrasts, seeking something that tells us about ourselves and do not
oversimplify the multitude of meanings of mourning to its pathological aspects.

Keywords: mourning; oblivion; resistance.
