Special Issue of the Journal of Extreme Anthropology: Affective Politics and the Policing of the Social Through Popular Music

Guest Editors Kjetil Klette Bøhler, Professor of Music and Culture, at the University of South East Norway, Norway, Bjørn Schiermer, Professor of Sociology, University of Oslo, Norway, Lorena Avellar de Muniagurria, Postdoctoral Researcher, Universidade de Campinas, (UNICAMP), Brazil Chris Stover Senior Lecturer of Music at Queensland Conservatory, Griffith University, Australia

The ‘affective turn’ across the humanities and the social sciences suggests that we pay attention to how affects create subjectivities, build communities and shape new forms of politics in the making (White 2017, Desai-Stephens & Reisnour 2020, Gregg & Seigworth 2010 and Clough & Halley 2007, Goodwin et. al. 2001). In other words, it encourages us to study how affective bodies ‘act and are acted upon’ (Seigworth and Gregg 2010: 1) as people engage with each other and with sensory objects (e.g. musical sounds), politically and socially, within specific contexts.
