Statistical panic : cultural politics and poetics of the emotions by Kathleen M Woodward( Book )

"In this moving and thoughtful book, Kathleen Woodward explores the politics and poetics of the emotions, focusing on American culture since the 1960s. She argues that we are constrained in terms of gender, race, and age by our culture's scripts for "emotional" behavior and that the accelerating impoverishment of interiority is a symptom of our increasingly media-saturated culture. She also shows how we can be empowered by stories that express our experience, revealing the value of our emotions as a crucial form of intelligence." "Referring discreetly to her own experience, Woodward examines the interpenetration of social structures and subjectivity, considering how psychological emotions are social phenomena, with feminist anger, racial shame, old-age depression, and sympathy for non-human cyborgs (including robots) as key cases in point. She discusses how emerging institutional and discursive structures engender "new" affects that in turn can help us understand our changing world if we are attentive to them - the "statistical panic" produced by the risk society, with its numerical portents of disease and mortality; the rage prompted by impenetrable and bloated bureaucracies; the brutal shame experienced by those caught in the crossfire of the media; and the conservative compassion that is not an emotion at all, only an empty political slogan."--Jacket

"Sorrow brought forth joy" : feelings of faith in American literature by Rachel Arteaga( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Feelings of Faith draws upon religious thought, specifically, Christian theological traditions, in a reconsideration of major debates in contemporary affect theory. The dissertation is a study of American literature across historical periods. Its nine short chapters discuss the captivity narrative of Puritan Mary Rowlandson; Flannery O'Connor's devotional writing and fiction; the short fiction of Gloria Naylor; slave narratives by Solomon Northup and Harriet Jacobs; James Baldwin's novel Go Tell It on the Mountain; Herman Melville's Moby-Dick; Mark Twain's Huckleberry Finn; and Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. The project claims that while much of contemporary affect theory takes the view that affect and cognition are separate systems, Christian traditions understand them to be deeply interconnected. Chapters on the sociality of the emotions, with a focus on the black church in the United States, suggest that specific emotions have different meanings in a secular framework than they do in a religious one. Finally, while recent work on affect in literary and cultural studies tends to be anticipatory in its as yet unfulfilled claims regarding the transformative potential of affect for ethics, the prescriptive nature of religious doctrine offers clarity in its willingness to regulate conduct. The dissertation as a whole is written in the context of the secularization debates, with reference to what many scholars call the postsecular
