imbrication of affect and empire and will explore the ways in which
affect blurs the lines between presence, absence, past, present, future,
coloniality, postcoloniality and other liminal or ephemeral textual and
identity positions within the increasingly globalized experience of our
present moment.

avian influenza, and species extinctionâ€"may seem the specific and daunting provenance of late
20th- and early 21st â€"century life, but it has in fact been a crucial part of history since ancient
times. It is important to remember, for instance, that starting in the 14th century and extending
