Abstract

Raising to the challenge of how to grasp such forms of inequalities that are mediated affectively, Affective Inequalities in Intimate Relationships
focuses on subtle inequalities that are shaped in everyday affective
encounters. It also seeks to bridge a gap between affect theory and
empirical social research by providing ideas and inspiration of how to
work with affect in research practice.


Presenting cutting-edge empirical studies on affect and intimate relationships, the collection


- introduces alternative and novel ways of conceptualizing the workings of affect in intimate relationships


- provides tools for tackling the subtle ways in which affectivity connects with power relations in intimate relations


- develops innovative methodologies that provide better access to affect as an embodied experience


A fascinating contribution to the interdisciplinary field of affect studies, Affective Inequalities in Intimate Relationships
will appeal to advanced undergraduates and postgraduates interested in
fields such as gender studies, queer studies and cultural studies.
