This panel hopes to investigate affect as that which disturbs the binary logic structuring contemporary discourses on collectivity. What happens when, rather than thinking of affect’s circulation as “mediating” between subjectivity and collectivity, we allow affect to unsettle this dyad? What does it mean for affect to render undecidable the relation between individual and collective, or to orient us towards a relation possessed of no advance guarantees? How does negative affect—for example, Sedgwick’s notion that shame throws the question of identity into relief—augment normative notions of self-possession towards new understandings of relationality?

The British Commonwealth and Postcolonial Studies Conference, inaugurated in 1992, is the oldest and longest-running annual meeting of its kind in the United States. It encompasses colonial and postcolonial histories, literatures, creative and performing arts, politics, economics, and all other aspects of the countries formerly colonized by Britain and other European powers.
We welcome a variety of approaches and viewpoints, and the generation of wide-ranging, productive debates. Thus we are particularly interested in interdisciplinary and/or cross-cultural panel proposals.

Please consider submitting an abstract for the proposed session below to be held at the NeMLA Convention in Baltimore, March 23-26, 2017.
The session aims to reimagine the fundamental pedagogical role of foreign language and culture courses in the college curriculum in the era of globalization. The interdisciplinary approach should be based on content to create opportunities to reflect on culture and cultural values essentially intrinsic in language and language learning.
