Continguts

This workshop seeks to introduce postgraduate students and researchers to affect theory in its multiple ramifications. In particular, the session will focus on feminist, queer, and trans approaches to affect theory from the perspective of cultural studies, film, and literary criticism primarily. First, I will give a short presentation where I will map recent directions and developments in the field, focusing on feminist, queer, trans, anti-racist, and decolonial methodologies. Then, we will discuss several short excerpts from key figures such as Sara Ahmed, Audre Lorde, Lauren Berlant, Kathleen Stewart, José Esteban Muñoz, Lucas Crawford, Carolyn Pedwell, and Sneja Gunew, among others. We will analyze how these theorists and activists critically and creatively deploy the following concepts and tropes: feminist killjoy, angry Black woman, pathogeographies, ordinary affects, brown feelings, transgender affect, transnational empathy, and decolonial emotions. In the last part of the session, I will show some multimedia work in order to illustrate how theories of affect may shape our ways of seeing with important ethical repercussions. Ultimately, this workshop attempts to spark a discussion about affect theory understood as a complex assemblage of forces, entanglements, ruptures, and possibilities; a complicated and fascinating archive that can offer participants an additional, and hopefully reinvigorating, critical lens from which to approach their own lines of research.
