Affect Theory Conference

We understand and respect the early decision to cancel this year's iteration of the affect theory conference, MAPS. Of course we are sad not to be able to gather with everyone this year in Lexington, but here we join you in keeping the energy and conversations going virtually. Below we have highlighted some of our exciting new books and journal issues, and you can always check out our newest affect books here and here.

Along from new work from Jane Bennett, José Esteban Muñoz, and Jack Halberstam we are excited to introduce the new Writing Matters! series edited by Lauren Berlant, Saidiya Hartman, and Katie Stewart, debuting with Lesley Stern’s Diary of a Detour. You can buy these and other books and journals with coupon code ATC20 through October 31, 2020.
