I’m, like, in love with you!
issue 3 | autumn 2013
“To be affected by something is to evaluate that thing” – Sara Ahmed
Join us as we celebrate a special Calgary launch of our third issue, I’m, like, in love with you!
In conjunction with our recent summer project on The Affective State, issue three explores the specificity of the term “affect,” from enabling ugly feelings for political action, to discursively produced affect, to pre-subjective intensities, to the effect of neoliberal precarity on our affective lives, to physiology, psychology, and to the body. The evening features Kathleen Brown, Carmen Derksen, Rafaela Kino, Anahita Jamali Rad, Claire Lacey, Danielle LaFrance, Nikki Reimer, and Rachel Zolf.
AAB is a group of self-identified women, with interest in reading and discussing critical themes that are pertinent to the space and time of the readers. “Community” and “politics” are inextricable, and we seek to cultivate this connection without fear of being called “feminist killjoys.” This project on affect was co-facilitated by Anahita Jamali Rad in Vancouver and by Danielle LaFrance in Calgary and brought together by an affect machine, the machine that keeps love alive, Skype.
Hosted at POST-SALTBOX SALON (531 24 Avenue NW)
**The house has a cat**
The issue will be available for $10 at the launch. Previous issues will be available for free.
