Critical Exchange: William Connolly and Ruth Leys (on Leys’ “The Turn to Affect: A Critique”)

In an earlier post, we let you know that Critical Inquiry had published an important essay by Ruth Leys (Humanities Center, Johns Hopkins University), entitled “The Turn to Affect: A Critique”, and we mentioned that CI would later publish a response to Prof. Leys’ piece by William Connolly (Political Science, Johns Hopkins University). Connolly’s response is now out, accompanied by a response from Leys. To access Connolly’s response, please click here. To read Leys’ response, please click here.

Here are previews of the first page of each essay (click on them to enlarge):
