“Hemos titulado este libro Socialidades y afectos porque trata de los modos diversos de estar juntos que creamos en nuestra vida cotidiana, así como en aquella que crean los medios de comunicación, o que reconstruimos con plataformas tecnológicas que potencian la interacción y la participación de sus usuarios”.

During the most oppressive decades of National-Catholicism imposed by the Franco regime, scientific and medical expertise and knowledge were used to promote a particular form of heterosexual love that supported patriarchal normativity and notions of femininity. This ‘science of love’ represents two dispositifs of feminization that circulated through a range of scientific and medical knowledges (e.g. eugenics, ethology, physiology, neurosciences and psychiatry). It not only supported the internal coherence of science and medicine, but also supported particular forms of knowledge within the cultural context of National-Catholicism. Although the science of love was
inspired by particular notions of romantic love, it was also contested by the daily and practical experiences of women. Different women in Franco’s Spain deployed marginalized and subaltern knowledges as they orchestrated an emotional knowledge that was more emancipatory and useful for everyday amorous preoccupations and wellbeing than the one in medical and psychiatric texts. Women’s discussions of love represented a key site and source of knowledge, an authentic repository of imaginative ideas that are also useful for the present to challenge patriarchal norms.

The issue raises questions about women’s bodies: are Creole women’s bodies haunted by memories and legacies of a traumatic history of Atlantic slavery and what meanings does this past hold for the present? In their interrogation of the gendered legacy of the plantation, this collection of essays invigorates feminist theorising of the affective.

New femininities: Postfeminism, neoliberalism and subjectivity
New Femininities brings together a collection of 20 original essays to interrogate how the subjectivities of girls and women are experienced and represented through some complex neoliberal and post-feminist sensibilities that have gained cultural hegemony in the last few decades. The collection sprang from an ESRC-funded 2-year seminar series of the same name, which, I remember, produced many exciting exchanges as participants from a range of disciplinary bases and theoretical orientations debated the changes and continuities of contemporary gender relations.
