Queer-feminist engagements aim at transforming sexualized, gendered, classed and racialized regimes. Given the current turn in the humanities and social sciences towards affect and emotions, how crucial is (reworking) affect for this endeavor and how does affect then work? Are affects and emotions spontaneous and unruly or are they rather molded by historically and socially speciffc dynamics and
codes of intelligibility? In what ways are the social, the economic, and the political created, enforced or transformed by e.g. anger, despair, shame, or pleasure? This event interrogates queering affect as work, as something that works, and as something that we can work with.
