Last September, University of Turku (Finland) hosted an international
conference on the broad issues of affectivity and embodiment. Now in all 34
workshop presentations from this conference have been published as an
e-book on line. Exploring how affects are constructed, experiences
signified and embodiment articulated, it features readings of film,
television, new media, advertisements and print journalism, as well as
arts, architecture and music. Approaches range from philosophical and
aesthetic to historical and sociological.

The e-book, as well as individual contributions (listed and linked at

downloaded at no cost. However, you will need an Adobe Acrobat Reader
