Reading Group - Affect theory by Brian Massumi & 'Enactivist Interventions' by Shaun Gallagher

Fr 03 Feb 2023 13:00 – 15:00, Meeting Reading Group - Arsenaal Building, Arsenaalstraat 1 Leiden, Room A0.02

Please join the LUCAS research group The Role of Experience in Arts of Criticism, Rhetoric, and Aesthetics, dedicated to the examination of affective, embodied-enactive, and new materialist approaches to the arts, for its monthly reading group.

It's open to anyone interested in experiential interactions between art, its makers, and their audiences.

The third on-campus meeting will take place on Friday, February 3, from 13.00 – 15.00 hrs (Arsenaal, Room A0.02). We will continue our reading of Brian Massumi’s essay, 'The Autonomy of Affect'. For an alternative interpretation of the Libet experiment discussed by Massumi we will also look at a very brief section from Shaun Gallagher’s introduction to his Enactivist Interventions (see the links below).

If you are interested and/or have reading suggestions for future sessions please contact Madeleine Kasten, m.j.a.kasten@hum.leidenuniv.nl, for more information.
