  • Affective (Self-) Transformations: Empathy, Neoliberalism and International Development.Carolyn Pedwell - 2012 - Feminist Theory 13 (2):163-179.
    Affective self-transformation premised on empathy has been understood within feminist and anti-racist literatures as central to achieving social justice. Through juxtaposing debates about empathy within feminist and anti-racist theory with rhetorics of empathy in international development, and particularly writing about ‘immersions’, this article explores how the workings of empathy might be reconceptualised when relations of postcoloniality and neoliberalism are placed in the foreground. I argue that in the neoliberal economy in which the international aid apparatus operates, empathetic self-transformation can become (...)

  • Biology’s Gift: Interrogating the Turn to Affect.Felicity Callard & Constantina Papoulias - 2010 - Body and Society 16 (1):29-56.
    This article investigates how the turn to affect within the humanities and social sciences re-imagines the relationship between cultural theory and science. We focus on how the writings of two neuroscientists and one developmental psychologist are used in order to ground certain claims about affect within cultural theory. We examine the motifs at play in cultural theories of affect, the models of biology with which they work, and some fascinating missteps characterizing the taking up of scientific literature. While neuroscience frames (...)

  • Parables for the Virtual: Movement, Affect, Sensation.Brian Massumi - 2002 - Durham: Duke University Press.
    Although the body has been the focus of much contemporary cultural theory, the models that are typically applied neglect the most salient characteristics of embodied existence—movement, affect, and sensation—in favor of concepts derived from linguistic theory. In _Parables for the Virtual_ Brian Massumi views the body and media such as television, film, and the Internet, as cultural formations that operate on multiple registers of sensation beyond the reach of the reading techniques founded on the standard rhetorical and semiotic models. Renewing (...)

  • Feed-Forward: On the Future of Twenty-First-Century Media.Mark B. N. Hansen - 2014 - University of Chicago Press.
    Even as media in myriad forms increasingly saturate our lives, we nonetheless tend to describe our relationship to it in terms from the twentieth century: we are consumers of media, choosing to engage with it. In _Feed-Forward_, Mark B. N. Hansen shows just how outmoded that way of thinking is: media is no longer separate from us but has become an inescapable part of our very experience of the world. Engaging deeply with the speculative empiricism of philosopher Alfred North Whitehead, (...)
