The productivity of ‘negative emotions’ in postcolonial literatures

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 1, 2022

Emotions, affect, and moods do not happen to us. Rather, we are our emotions: they configure our manner of relating to, and existing within the world. Ontologies of emotion—in their embodied and symbolic dimensions—alter our perceptions, experiences, and predictions of ourselves and our environment in ways which problematize inside/outside and mind/body dualities. This is also true of the so-called ‘negative emotions’. Studies of negative affect abound in the humanities, from Aristotle’s fear and pity, Heidegger’s angst, and Robert Burton’s melancholy, to Sartre’s nausea, Germaine Greer’s rage, Kristeva’s disgust, and, more recently, Sianne Ngai’s “ugly feelings.”

The fragment and its rhythms: writing practices, sites of thought, acts of resistance

Université de Montréal, Québec, Canada, April 27th and 28th, 2023

Conference organized by Sarah Labelle, Benoîte Turcotte-Tremblay and Justina Uribe

 

In its very form, literature cannot be separated from time, from the history that gives it an anchor, from the moment of creation, from the rhythm that controls or frees the writings. The fragmentary form discloses the vestiges of time in their most material shape, helping us apprehend language through its smallest elements.
