[Commlist] Society for the Study of Affect Summer School

Thu Apr 04 17:21:49 GMT 2019

The newly formed (still emergent?) Society for the Study of Affect is holding its first Summer School in Lancaster, PA, USA from Monday July 29 to Monday July 29 to Friday August 02, 2019.  There are eleven different seminars on a diverse range of topics, all taught by a pair of convenors. More information is available on the website ( but here is the overall description:

There will be no better—more energizing, more community-building, more hopeful, more enlightening—way to spend a week of your summer. Whether you are an undergraduate/Master/PhD student, an early career academic, a tenured faculty person, or someone outside of the academy altogether, the Society for the Study of Affect Summer Seminars provides an amazing opportunity to learn, interact, and create alongside two dozen of the most engaging folks (established and up-and-coming scholars) working in/around affect studies from all around the world. Come be a participant!

Registration opens on Monday, April 1st. Seats in all seminars are available on first come, first served. We recommend registering sooner than later to guarantee your top choices. On June 1st, seminar registration rates will re-set to a higher amount. Come for just two or three days if you wish to take two seminars. Or stay for the full-week and register for as many as five seminars. Most seminars are capped no more than 25 students.

Beyond meeting in seminars, there will also be twice-daily gatherings on each seminar day for “animations’ & ‘provocations” intended to spark conversation and foster cross-contaminations between conveners and all of the seminar participants. If you attended #AffectWTF in 2015 or Capacious#AIMS in 2018, then you already know how uniquely interdisciplinary, convivially non-hierarchical and full-on invigorating these events are.

We have scheduled concurrent mini-conference style panels on Wednesday, July 31st (15 minute presentation slots) for graduate and early career researchers to share research and receive helpful feedback. If you have work in progress that you would like to present at #SSASS, send a message to (capacious /at/ <mailto:(Capacious /at/> by no later than June 1st if you would like to be considered for a presentation slot.
