Affective Spaces II

Confirmed speakers: Mikkel Bille (Roskilde), Christian Borch (Copenhagen), Tonino Griffero (Rome), and Lydia Jørgensen (Copenhagen).

Our affective life is spatially extended in a way that other persons, material artifacts or the pervasive quality of a given environment can become central aspects of what we feel. In this perspective, the exploratory workshop will gather insights from various approaches, including studies dedicated to extended emotion, sociality of feeling, affective sharing, affective contagion, and emotional atmospheres, in order to arrive at an improved understanding of spatially extended affectivity.

This is the second of two exploratory workshops on affective spaces, funded by the German Research Council (DFG) as part of the research project NO 1148/1-1 “The embodied affective dimension of collective intentionality”.

The first part of the workshop took place on April 5. This second part takes place on May 31.


The workshop is free and open to all, but registration is required.
