This first “golden” open-access issue of Ethnologia Europaea with our new publisher, the Open Library of Humanities, showcases the broad range of research questions and methods in the fields which form the disciplinary context of our journal. Beginning with the introduction of a new theoretical approach to researching digital emotion practices (Christoph Bareither), the issue also includes an ethnography of migrant activism (Martin Bak Jørgensen) as well as an experiential museum highlighting issues of banal sustainability (Lars Kaijser). In a combination of discourse analysis and interview methods, another article explores (and explodes) myths around children born via in vitro fertilization in Poland (Ewa Maciejewska-Mroczek). Finally, the historical dimension of our fields is included in articles on archive practices (Kati Mikkola, Pia Olsson and Eija Stark) and memory studies (Eerika Koskinen-Koivisto and Oula Seitsonen) related to minority cultures in Finland.
