Increasingly, social science researchers are pointing to the central importance of affect and affective communication to understanding the dynamics of flows and networks, particularly with reference to embodied, nonconscious processes in group dynamics. This research network was formed with the intention of exploring methodological innovation in relation to researching affect and using affect in social research. The series consisted of 6 events in which a small group of academics and PhD students from a variety of disciplines gathered at Cardiff and City Universities to explore together different methodological standpoints in order to develop methods for use in social research. In doing this, they heard from a variety of speakers from different viewpoints. One aim of the series was to bring recent interest in affect with older traditions, especially those developed in relation to psychoanalysis, thus bringing different traditions of work into dialogue with each other.
