Affect and Emotion Methodologies Workshop

24-26th October 2010
Monash University, Gippsland Campus

Contact Dr Michelle Duffy for details

Research into emotion and affect has led to a significant body of work across a number of disciplinary fields, yet how we might conceptualise and develop an appropriate methodology is still to be closely considered. Within the Network there are a number of scholars considering this, and this workshop is timely given the amount of interest generated by the recent Emotional Geographies conference in April, as well as the recent launch of the new academic journal, Emotion, Space and Society.

This one-day workshop will bring together postgraduate, ECR and experienced researchers to think through and critically discuss methodological approaches to research that explores emotion and affect. Building on research themes that have arisen out of a number of previous workshops held over the life of the CRN, particularly those of the PG/ECR and Cultural Histories and Geographies nodes, this event will provide an opportunity for an invited group of emerging and more experienced scholars to develop their ideas through peer discussion and methodological experimentation. Professors Ross Gibson and Elspeth Probyn have accepted invitations to be part of this workshop.
