Affective Movements, Methods and Pedagogies invites readers to think with affect about performance, pedagogies and their inherent activist, embodied and collective natures. It works across multiple spheres to help readers understand how to deploy affective approaches rather than to simply think with affect theory about traditional methods.



The book is structured and curated across three main thematic sections: affective movements, methods and pedagogies, each of which treats the core explorations of affect and performance through a different perspective. It is concerned with the ways performance and theatrical methods work with and through a theoretics of affect. The sixteen chapters include work that models theoretical practices in writing, and demonstrates how theorising affect and its methods is itself a performative practice. The contributors offer rich examples from diverse geopolitical as well as disciplinary contexts, innovative methods, and finally, intersectional theoretics.





This collection will be of interest to higher education students exploring methodologies, and academic researchers and teachers in the fields of performance studies, communication, critical studies, sociology and the arts.

'Affective Movements, Methods and Pedagogies is both timely and necessary. The collection provides an exciting international multi-perspectival mapping of affect methodological studies. The engagement with affective approaches from a performance studies focus instigates multiple dimensions of new inquiry and enhances pedagogical practice. I shall definitely be checking out my bookseller for a copy when the publication date comes around!' -- Dr. Ken Gale, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Plymouth, UK

'Affective Movements, Methods and Pedagogies brings together a diverse group of dedicated emerging and established scholars and practitioners who are all committed to the need for interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approaches to performance and other arts-driven work and research-creation. Their playful and collective wisdom has resulted in a rich collage of perspectives and practices from seven countries, showing how affect theory can enact practices that disrupt modernist and humanist ideologies and their attendant rationalist and anthropocentric logics. This book is not a blueprint, nor is it a collection of feelgood stories, rather the authors have explored, from diverse perspectives and understandings, the ways in which bodies produce affects, and affects produce bodies. As such it is an essential resource for scholars interested in researching affect theory and performance and their practices.' -- Annette Gough Professor Emerita, School of Education, RMIT University, Australia

'Affective Movements, Methods, and Pedagogies is a vibrant, urgent collection of essays from across the disciplinary spectrum. Together these essays call us, as scholars, teachers, performers, practitioners, (or all of, more than, these), to fresh, immersive engagements with affect and to new ways of thinking and doing.' -- Professor Jonathan Wyatt, University of Edinburgh, UK
