We especially welcome work that is interdisciplinary in its orientation to theorizing affect/emotion and that is able to speak to multiple traditions/methods of studying affectivity. Research specifically in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is not required, but training in critical scholarship on gender and/or sexuality will be an advantage.”
