Description

I will try to account for the current revival of pleasure and positive affect as topics of interest in humanities scholarship, and will ask what it meant for some Romantic-period authors to "problematize" the category of pleasure or think of pleasure as a problematic field of experience, as well as what it might mean for us to do so now.
