Possible paper topics include but are not limited to the following: theories or taxonomies of affects or emotions, affects and the formation or constitution of consciousness, self-conscious emotions, distinctions between affective states and emotions, affective neuroscience, political affects and emotions, affective bias, affective socio-political norms, historical conceptions of sentiments, affects and emotions, comparative and cross-disciplinary perspectives on emotions and personhood, morality, politics, culture, psychology and aesthetics. Other related topics will be welcome.
