Description
Motivated by the affective turn (e.g. Clough 2007, Ahmed 2004) and sensory research (e.g. Pink 2009, Berkaak og Norbye 2014), this PhD summer school discusses the doing of affective and sensory research by addressing four pertinent methodological questions: How are affective and sensory processes embedded in the making of specific research questions? How is empirical data for qualitative affective and sensory cultural studies research generated? How are affective and sensory aspects documented, identified and later analyzed in the material? And what are the ethics of doing affective and sensory research? In addressing some (or all) of these questions, each summer school participant will bring her or his own research in dialogue with the methodological challenges of doing affective and sensory research.

The event seeks to attract PhD students from a range of academic fields (anthropology, health, geography, media, cultural studies, aesthetics, sociology etc.) interested in the doing of affective and sensory methodologies. Possible areas/topics are:

• Identifying affects and/or senses
• Immateriality and bodily engagement
• The ethics of doing affective and sensory research
• Experimental approaches to affect studies
• Research as bodily entanglement
• Participatory or co-creative methods
• Textualities and ethnographic fieldwork
• Affective and/or sensory tourism
• Affects and senses as gendered, classed, sexed
• Technologies and mobilities
• Measuring affective intensities in social media
• Archives of feeling
• Rhythmanalysis as affective methodology
• Rethinking textual analysis
• Performative and non-presentational methods
• Investigating affective communities, crowds or mobs



The Ph.D.-summer school will be based on keynote presentations, workshops and studentsʼ own
project presentations and organized feedback sessions.

The examination will consist of three parts: 1. Full paper hand-in (deadline May 15); 2. Attending
workshops and doing group assignments; 3. Paper presentation and discussion of papers.

About the summer school network (SSCT)
The series aims at creating an international environment of constructive academic discussions in the field of cultural studies in order to strengthen this discipline in our respective academic communities and to develop the discipline of cultural studies according to actual developments and new theoretical paradigms. The series aims at improving teaching in cultural studies through a meticulous work on theoretical, methodological and empirical challenges. It is also our intention to build stronger research relations and exchange opportunities between the involved institutions and
participants. Network coordinator: Carsten Stage (norcs@dac.au.dk).
