Inside Higher Ed features a wrap-up of the book exhibit at the 2007 meeting of the MLA in Chicago. The story mentions two Duke Press Books, The Affective Turn, by Patricia Ticineto Clough and Ordinary Affects, by Kathleen Stewart as well as a quote from our Copywriter, Katie Courtland, who was representing the press at the meeting:
"Katie Courtland of Duke University Press said she was seeing a lot of
interest in ‘affect’—issues related to feeling, emotion, sentiment—which she viewed as reflecting a sense that theory hadn’t sufficiently
addressed those topics."
