DEADLINE TODAY: Uneasy Feelings: Space, Affective Relations, and Dis/orientation

Monday, November 20, 2017 - 4:12pm
Association of Canadian College and University Teachers of English (ACCUTE)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 20, 2017

This panel seeks to explore what it means to feel/be uneasy. How are feelings of unease depicted: what are the movements; what are the affects; what (if any) are the boarders of unease? Is there a difference in representations of unease in literature, film, fine arts, etc.; or the proliferation of unease in contemporary cultural studies? In her feminist critiques of happiness and phenomenology, Sara Ahmed notes how feelings of unease can saturate a body or environment: “The word ‘comfort’ suggests well-being and satisfaction, but it also suggests an ease and an easiness. To follow the rules of [heteronormativity] is to be at ease in a world that reflects back the form one inhabits as an ideal.
