About this event

Affect and Social Media/University of East London present

The Affect Theory Reader II: Worldings, Tensions, Futures

A Preview Symposium

Coming sometime in the latter half of 2023: The Affect Theory Reader II: Worldings, Tensions, Futures from Duke University Press! This event will preview work from a few of the book’s almost two dozen contributors.

The reader’s second edition promises to unsettle and reorient the futures of affect theory, to leave particular tensions and ambiguities even more gloriously unresolved, and to assemble a shimmer of inventories that refuses closure around any kind of “monoaffective imaginary” (in the words of Lauren Berlant). Let’s get uncomfortable and unlearn a lot of what has already been thought and felt by affect theory in order to imagine worldings that might open up otherwise and elsewhere. Or at least flail again, flail better.

In addition to the editors, Gregory Seigworth and Carolyn Pedwell, a full programme and schedule of speakers will be announced soon (on the Virality blog).

The event is hosted by Affect and Social Media at University Square Stratford Campus: University of East London (UEL), 1 Salway Place, London, England, E15 1NF
