Joint Faculty Institute of Graduate Studies (JFIGS) Friday Forum
Hosted by the Passionate Politics Group
The JFIGS Friday Forums are full-day events bringing together UCL staff and students for a lively, interdisciplinary discussion on a topic relevant to the Arts and Humanities and Social Sciences.
This forum is hosted by the Passionate Politics group at UCL, a network of scholars studying the role of affects in interdisciplinary perspective. We invite historians, political theorists, philosophers, anthropologists, economists, scholars of literature, music, and the cognitive sciences, to engage in conversations about key moments in which the political has revealed its affective side. What are the means by which passions are articulated, transmitted, and shared in different media, social and historical situations? What are the modes of mediation for emotions (‘contagion’ and ‘mimicry’, for example), and what is their significance for understanding politics?
