When we relate love to jealousy and jealousy to love, we should be aware that there is a constant wish, or even desire, to “save” love from jealousy. Moreover, that the notion of jealousy has negative connotations: that jealousy is something that can wound the other; that jealousy is something one should be ashamed of (perhaps, being aggressive); that jealousy is something one should be fearful of (perhaps, being excluded); and what I consider as the most important – that because of jealousy one might suffer from being subject/ed to a kind of affection that is considered as “craziness,” but not any kind of craziness – the “craziness” that is at the same time craziness and banality. Being common. Being a common being.More...

Identities: Journal for Politics, Gender and Culture is an open-access peer-reviewed international journal that seeks to serve as a platform for the theoretical production of Southeastern Europe and enable its visibility and an opening for international debate with authors from both the “intellectual centers” and the “intellectual margins” of the world. It is particularly interested in promoting theoretical investigations which see issues of politics, gender and culture as inextricably interrelated. It is open to all theoretical strands, to all schools and non-schools of thought without prioritizing any of the canonical Masters of philosophy. It does not seek doctrinal consistency, but it seeks consistency in rigor of investigation which can combine frameworks of interpretation derived from various and sometimes opposed schools of thought. Our passion is one for topics rather than philosophical masters.
Identities: Journal for Politics, Gender and Culture was founded in 2001 by Katerina Kolozova and Žarko Trajanoski, as a project supported by the Swedish Foundation Kvinna till Kvinna, carried out by the Research Center for Gender Studies which functioned as autonomous project of the OSI within the framework of the International Center for European Culture - Euro-Balkan. In the year 2007 it continued to be published by Euro-Balkan Press. After a hiatus of almost two years, the founders have decided to continue the publication of the journal with a new publisher - the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities - Skopje.
Identities is generally published once a year, releasing two numbers in a single volume.
Identities is published in Skopje, Macedonia, by the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities – Skopje.
