Stimmungen: climates, moods, atmospheres

It has been claimed that the German term 'Stimmung' cannot be accurately
translated into other languages, and nonetheless it has been used
throughout the centuries in ways which translate across disciplinary
boundaries. The use of the term in music, which refers to the quality of
musical instruments being in tune, but also to the effect this has on
audiences, reveals how its meaning encompasses the interplay between
internal and external elements. Stimmungen can be experienced both
individually and collectively. Stimmung can have both an integrative
function and a communicative dimension, for example, when discussing
political or economic climates; atmospheres natural and created; and
personal, collective, or environmental moods. This uniquely German term
is our starting point for cross-disciplinary discussion. The concept of
Stimmungen can take on a wider significance in an increasingly
globalised and digitised world, where moods, atmospheres and climates
have the growing potential to exert an influence across borders and
