About the project

We are witnessing a need within the Humanities to rethink existing theoretical and analytic frameworks based primarily on representation, narration and linguistics to better accommodate bodily sensations, cultural performativity and social networks. This need has intensified with the proliferation of digital technology and global media events. The project Affects, Interfaces, Events proposes a new frame for studying the impact of real-time interface events on an affective level of experience.
