Affective Temporality: Towards a Fourth Wave
Chamberlain, Prudence
Gender and Education, v28 n3 p458-464 2016
This article considers the way in which the wave has been constructed as a negative means by which to understand feminism, making a case for reconceptualising the wave as an "affective temporality". Focusing on both feeling and historically specific forms of activism, the article suggests that the wave should not be considered as divisive, but as a narrative of continuity that allows for particular surges in action and public feeling to be identified. Considering the concept of the "contemporary", the article not only makes a case for feminist timekeeping, but turns to the possibilities of a current fourth-wave moment.
