NeMLA 2013 Roundtable: Affect: The New Sensibility? (deadline passed)

Contemporary theories of affect overlap with eighteenth-century ideas of sensibility as efforts to theorize the social, to affirm feeling as a way of knowing, and to understand the porous interface between and among bodies and minds.  This roundtable (brief presentations followed by a conversation) invites participants to suggest ways sensibility might help us understand affect or how affect might help us understand sensibility, by exploring their respective representation in texts and contexts with attention to issues of gender and perceived social standing.   Please send 250-400 word proposals and brief cv to Mary Anne Myers.

44th Annual Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
