Emotion/Affect and Imperial Formations: Postgraduate virtual workshop




How do emotion and affect continue to play a role in the construction of imperial power dynamics and imperial relationships? From anti-immigrant sentiments to forced displacement, echoing historical patterns of exclusion to affective legacies of imperialism within colonized populations through historical traumas and loss, the affective dimension of the fabric of postcolonial and imperial relationships is significant. Emotions and affective attachments related to particular historical contexts and locations need to go beyond universalistic interpretations. By incorporating perspectives from decolonial and postcolonial studies, anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, media studies, and history, our workshop seeks to explore affective experiences in imperial formations that go beyond the local, regional, and global levels. 


Registration will close two hours before the event begins.
