MLA Special Session: Affect and Embodiment at the Margins in 20/21-c. American Literature

updated: 
Monday, February 21, 2022 - 2:20pm
University of Wisconsin-Madison
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, March 15, 2022

This MLA Special Session panel invites papers that interrogate the affordances and stakes of mobilizing marginalized affects, or elucidating affects that move between marginalized bodies in contemporary American literature and culture. 

 

Lauren Berlant characterized affect as the “body’s response to the world, something you’re always catching up to.” And yet critics often overlook the role of material bodies and embodiment in the circulation and impact of affect. How can we put the questions of embodiment and materiality back into the study of affect theory? What can be gained from studying bodily affectations in marginalized lives?
