We are writing to share the CFP for a workshop on critical approaches to affect theory entitled Affect, Comparison, and Power. The workshop is co-sponsored by the Institute of Advanced Study of the Global South at Northwestern-Qatar and the Center for Advanced Research in Global Communication, Center on Digital Culture and Society, Department of Religious Studies, Center for Africana Studies, Middle East Center, and South Asia Center at the University of Pennsylvania, and organized by Heather Jaber (NU-Q) and Max Johnson Dugan (UPenn). The workshop will gather scholars working in post/de/anticolonial studies, critical Black studies, queer theory, and other critical fields to push affect theory to its emergent future. 

The workshop will be held virtually on March 18, 2023.

We invite scholars at any stage to submit abstracts that engage with the ideas, methods, and politics of comparison for consideration. The CFP can be found here: bit.ly/comparing_affects_cfp. The abstract submission form can be found here: bit.ly/comparing_affects.

The deadline to submit is December 2, 2022.

We appreciate it if you would forward this email to the students in your department and colleagues to whom this may be of interest. Questions may be directed to: comparing.affects@gmail.com.
