Emotionality, liminality and the 'turn to affect'
Prof Paul Stenner

This event took place on 13th December 2011

In recent years, much Anglophone scholarship in the context of a good many disciplines has come to focus broadly upon what could be called questions concerning affectivity. This questioning of affectivity (including the dimension of feeling and issues relating to the experience and expression of emotion) is transdisciplinary to the extent that it cuts across disciplinary boundaries whilst also confronting researchers with the limits of disciplinary knowledge. Drawing upon some of his own research, Paul Stenner will provide an overview of this ‘turn to affect’ . Drawing upon and developing the concept of liminality, he will then evaluate the relevance of the affective turn for social psychology and psychosocial thinking more generallyPsycho-Social
