Formatted Abstract/Summary
The term ‘affect’ was not widely used in cinema studies until the 1990s, when it emerged in research at the intersection of film and philosophy. This overview will begin by establishing how Linda Williams’ important essay ‘Film Bodies: Gender, Genre and Excess’ (1991) conceptualizes the affective impact of film on the bodies of audience members. It will then examine changing approaches to affect, with particular attention to cognitivist accounts and to phenomenological film theorist Vivian Sobchack’s noteworthy intervention in the field.
