Inhoud
This course is for students in the MA Gender Studies, GEMMA, MA Applied Musicology, MA Arts and Society and MA Contemporary Theatre, Dance and Dramaturgy; students from other MA programmes should check with the course coordinator before enrolling. Only this way participation can be granted. The entrance requirements for Exchange Students will be checked by International Office and the Programme coordinator. You do not have to contact the Programme coordinator by yourself.

This course examines, with the support of gender, queer, critical race, and post-colonial theories, different feminist approaches to the study of art and affect, with a specific focus on anger, shame, hope, pain, and depression. With reference to art practices, the course explores the complex interplay between affect, emotion, and feeling. It does so through a critical interrogation of how certain affects and emotions adhere to bodies, cultures and sexualities; how they function as social power to pathologise others, and how reconfiguring the possibilities of affects and emotions is necessary for feminist, queer and anti-racist politics.  How does affect operate in artistic and activist practices? What affects, emotions and sensations can feminist art evoke? By studying a constellation of theories and artistic practices, the course investigates the centrality of affect for understanding social and political life.
