'Ordinary Affects' special issue

Jonathan Wyatt is co-editing, with US scholar Alecia Jackson, a special issue of the journal Departures in Critical Qualitative Research that responds to the Kathleen Stewart book, Ordinary Affects. The special issue will pick up on Stewart’s invitation to notice, register and inhabit the affective dimension of everyday life; and the provocation that this offers to think differently about our relationships with the material, social and political worlds. The likely publication date is 2017.
