The study of affect – variously understood as emotion, feeling, capacity, or even relationality -- demands a transdisciplinary approach. In this seminar, we will explore how affect studies has spawned and enabled different theoretical and methodological approaches that have informed new dimensions and directions of analysis in cultural anthropology, geography, feminist and queer studies, psychology, religious studies, media and cultural studies, science and technology studies, biomedicine and biology. The objectives of this course are 1) to develop a transdisciplinary understanding of affect that might provide a foundation for graduate work in thesis area and 2) to hone analytical skills (oral and written) through interdisciplinary discussion, writing, and lectures.
