Session Description:

Emotions have engaged thinkers since antiquity. Affect theory is one continuation today. Classifying and controlling emotions, representing emotions, and relating emotion to the body still incite debate. This roundtable previews the October 2015 PMLA issue on emotions, from medieval feelings to love between men, from theorizing emotion as a transformational force to reading it as pedagogy.
