This course examines, through gender and postcolonial theories, the politics and the practices of (self)representations, with a focus on the erotics, passion and empowerment, but also on separation, violence, and pain. In the process, it presents different feminist approaches to the complex interplay of affect, emotion, and feeling, focusing on the emergence of new subjectivities and communities.|
