Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

updated: 
Monday, August 21, 2017 - 10:52pm

Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?
