Intensities of feeling: towards a spatial politics of affect

Intensities of feeling: towards a spatial politics of affect Abstract This paper attempts to take the politics of affect as not just incidental but central to the life of cities, given that cities are thought of as inhuman or transhuman entities and that politics is understood as a process of community without unity. It is in three main parts. The first part sets out the main approaches to affect that conform with this approach. The second part considers the ways in which the systematic engineering of affect has become central to the political life of Euro‐American cities, and why. The third part then sets out the different kinds of progressive politics that might become possible once affect is taken into account. There are some brief conclusions. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Geografiska Annaler Series B Human Geography Taylor & Francis
