Session Description:

Continuing the work of the Public Feelings project, this roundtable seeks to map affect studies now but not to stabilize the area's foundations. Participants will choose a research problem from a collectively generated list related to the affective components of aesthetics, embodiment, pedagogy, and politics to assess directions for research and experiment. The panelists and audience members will then brainstorm ways to expand the archive of questions and agendas.


Subject:

  • General Literature – Literary Criticism and Theory
