Following the Affective Turn is an interdisciplinary research project that hopes to invite discussion and reflection on the current state of affect studies. As part of this project, we're running a series of reading groups centred around Sara Ahmed's The Cultural Politics of Emotion.
This month, we'll be looking at chapters three and four as a starting point for our discussion:
3. The Affective Politics of Fear
4. The Performativity of Disgust
These reading groups are open to all - students, researchers, artists, activists, academics, and enthusiasts! Please sign up here to confirm your attendance.
Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any trouble getting hold of The Cultural Politics of Emotion, or if you have any questions that we can help with. You can also follow us on twitter at @affectiveturn for updates.
