Thinking Feeling: An Affect Symposium

May 6, 2017 at 10:00 am5:00 pm

MIT List Visual Arts Center 20 Ames Street Building E15-109 Cambridge, MA 2139 United States

Join us for all or part of a one day symposium inviting leading affect theorists from a variety of fields to comment on the problems of affect and the future of the humanities as institutions question power, creativity and social relations. How can an awareness of affect illuminate an understanding of the visual arts or transform our understandings of aesthetics? This program is presented in conjunction with the List Center’s upcoming exhibition An Inventory of Shimmers: Objects of Intimacy in Contemporary Art. Speakers will include Karen Redrobe (formerly Beckman) Professor of Cinema and Modern Media at University of Pennsylvania; Brian Price Associate Professor of Cinema Studies at University of Toronto, and Kathleen Stewart Professor in the department of Anthropology at University of Texas at Austin.
