Book Launch: Routledge Handbook to Gender and Affect

January 26, 2023 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm

The study of affect is one of the most exciting and wide-ranging topics to have emerged in the humanities in recent year. It has particularly important implications for the study of gender and sexuality. Feminist and queer studies were in on the ground floor of affect studies during the first decade of the twenty-first century, but how are scholars in 2022 putting gender and affect into dialogue? What does it mean today to do gender and affect together? In this event, a group of Pitt contributors from the edited volume, The Routledge Handbook to Gender and Affect (2023) will talk about how their essays employ the concept of affect. This event will be hybrid, so you can attend it either in person in 602 CL or via Zoom as you prefer. More information is here.
