Ruth Leys: “The Turn to Affect: A Critique”

We’re very pleased to announce that the essay by Ruth Leys (Humanities Center, Johns Hopkins University) on the recent “turn to affect” in the humanities and social sciences is now out, in the Spring 2011 issue of Critical Inquiry (we first mentioned this paper in this earlier post). To access the full text online, please click here. A response to this essay, written by William Connolly (Political Science, Johns Hopkins University), will be published in a subsequent issue of CI, accompanied by a reply from Prof. Leys.

Here is a preview of the essay’s first two pages:
