If the study of affect follows the question “What can a body do?”, then this collection offers a followup question that is both necessary and productive: “what can an interface do?” In the essays included within this collection show, interfaces do a lot. Events and bodies are themselves conditioned by and condition the interfaces (digital but also otherwise) that we encounter in any given event on any given scale.

Ranging across diverse terrain, these essays each reveal generative and creative thinking-feeling with the key concepts as they cluster together, overlap and veer away from one another. Accessible yet illuminating, Affects, Interfaces, Events offers compelling interventions that will interest both newcomers to affect studies and scholars already steeped in the field.
