From the earliest sea journeys, the challenges of coastal and ocean travel have rendered the sea liminal. Vessels at sea existed between landmasses, nations, and political systems, while limits of communication, high incidence of shipwreck, and vagaries of weather and navigation meant that to be at sea was, figuratively, to exist between life and death, especially from the point of view of those on land. The sea was, and is, a realm of mystery; its inaccessible depths and the workings of its global systems resist human mastery. As a means of travel, exploration, warfare, trade and imperial expansion, the sea's historical and cultural importance for maritime nations has long been reflected in their literature and art.

Affect and its Boundaries - MLA 2017

To theorize affect is to theorize boundaries: that is, to realize and negotiate between vocabularies and cultures with overlapping and competing taxonomies. As Jonathan Flatley writes in Affective Mapping, "The vocabulary of affect can be confusing, in part because there are many terms—affect, emotion, feeling, passion, mood—and a long history of debate not only about which terms are the right ones and how to distinguish between them, but about what they mean in the first place. And while there is a great deal of excellent recent work on affect in several disciplines....this does not mean that a general consensus, or even a common conversation, has emerged" (12).

When Henry David Thoreau writes that: 'We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones', he attests how the body and expression are intrinsically linked. Bodies become not only a central subject, but a way in which we see and talk about other things. Bodies are not only created, but perform, communicate and create.
