Affect and its Boundaries - MLA 2017

updated: 
Tuesday, February 2, 2016 - 1:46pm
Douglas Dowland

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).

The Modern Body 1830-Present, 3rd June 2016

University of York, Centre for Modern Studies

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.

Bridging the Divide: Literature and Science

Organised by the Universities of Kent and Sussex

Keynote speaker: Dr Pamela Thurschwell - Sussex

'Science and literature are not two things, but two sides of one thing' - Thomas Huxley

Victorians and the Democratic Imagination (Hong Kong)

Victorians and the Democratic Imagination
Deadline Extended to 1 March 2016

Many Victorians worried that democratizing reforms would upset social stability by empowering a growing middle- and working class, and critics have long argued that these concerns are also manifest in the form and content of the Victorian novel. For many, the Victorian novel has become synonymous with middle-class ideology. D. A. Miller and Mary Poovey have argued that the Victorian novel promulgated a politics of confinement that defined the limits of the individual subject; more recently, Fredric Jameson has highlighted democratic impulses within the form of the novel itself, such as a de-emphasizing of protagonists to also give minor characters interiority.
