South By Midwest 2011

February 23, 2011

In the last few years the world of affect has been recognized as one of the most intriguing and productive fields of inquiry across disciplinary borders and cognitive domains. Affect is considered a key concept for the understanding of new forms of hegemony within the framework of late capitalism as well as a threat to national and global social orders. The III South by Midwest International Conference on Latin American Cultural Studies has been planned as an interdisciplinary exploration of the role that emotions, feelings, and passions play in the formation of collective identities and in the development of social conflict. The conference will focus on the affective articulation of ethic, aesthetic, and political issues and on the symbolic strategies utilized to express and represent affect in Latin American contemporary culture.
