pittgenderstudiesThe Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies program at the University of Pittsburgh announces a two-day colloquium on the topic:

MASCULINITY AND AFFECT
Thursday April 6 and Friday April 7, 2017
602 Cathedral of Learning on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh

Emotion and masculinity have been studied together for decades now. But what would it mean, in 2017, to place affect studies and masculinity studies into dialogue? What do concepts such as energy, force, or pre-conscious bodily sensation do to masculinity and to masculinity studies? Where does affect leave emotion?

We will spend two days generating thought on these and other questions. Our colloquium will include presentations and reading groups and will involve scholars from a broad range of disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
