The Colloquium

Emotion and masculinity have been studied together for decades now. But what would it mean, in 2017, to place affect studies and masculinity studies into dialogue? What do concepts such as energy, force, or pre-conscious bodily sensation do to masculinity and to masculinity studies? Where does affect leave emotion?

We will spend two days generating thought on these and other questions. Our colloquium will include presentations and reading groups and will involve scholars from a broad range of disciplines.

The colloquium is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Email graduate coordinator Steven Moon at
