What World is Made?: Gender and Affect in Three Life Moments
DOI: 10.14361/9783839461419-005
In this article, Friedman explores key life moments in order to consider her own experiences of womanhood/femininity and the impacts of affect. Exposing the imprecision of language to try to evoke the body, Friedman's considers how the world of gendered experiences function and create meaning. If worldmaking is grounded in »affect, emotion, and perception« (Breger 232), Friedman asks how we may engage in the nuances of the construction of our own gendered worlds.
