A&SM#4 News: 2nd call and Gregory J. Seigworth

A&SM#4 News

A&SM#4: Second call for presentations announced (deadline Sept 15th – full details here) and Professor Gregory J. Seigworth added to the conference programme as respondent to our special keynote speaker, Patricia Ticineto Clough.

The organisers of A&SM#4 (7th Nov, 2018 at UEL in Stratford east London) are extremely excited to announce that Gregory J. Seigworth has been confirmed as the respondent to our keynote speaker Patricia Ticineto Clough. Greg’s contribution to affect studies is internationally renowned. Notably he is the co-editor (with Melissa Gregg) of the key text, The Affect Theory Reader (Duke University Press, 2010) and more recently the host of the wonderful (and huge) 2015 and 2018 affect studies conferences in Lancaster PA. Greg is also Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Capacious Journal and wrote the foreword to the Affect and Social Media book published in July this year. Greg joins Patricia alongside our already confirmed and distinguished keynote panel, including Jessica Ringrose (UCL), Amit Rai (Queen Mary), Rebecca Coleman (Goldsmiths), Darren Ellis and Ian Tucker (East London).

Affects, Interfaces, Events Programme

After all the excitement of the wonderful Capacious Conference in Lancaster PA earlier this month I‚Äôm now preparing to head off for AIE in Aarhus next week. Here’s the blurb…

“The proliferation of digital and interactive technologies in most aspects of our daily lives produces an intensified distribution of affect. Existential conditions change through affective interface foldings of bodies, subjectivities and technologies. The conference Affects, Interfaces, Events investigates how affective interface events ‚Äston a micro- and macro-level ‚Äď reinforce or challenge these changes. A major concern of the conference is to consider interface modulations on an affective, social, aesthetic, and political level.”

The preliminary programme looks amazing. Here’s a link to the PDF.
