Example text

Jaggar criticizes the downplaying by dominant groups of the role of emotion (and its alleged association with women and subordinate groups) in contributing to knowledge production and social inequality. Unlike these feminist scholars who view emotion or affect as both cognitive and sensational, scholars like Brian Massumi (2002) suggest a sharp 10 Jie Yang distinction between affect and emotion. He sees emotion as a cognitive process that can be linguistically represented, while affect is a bodily experience of intensity that cannot be captured by narration (Massumi 2002: 28; Grossberg 1992: 81).

Ahmed (2010) also discusses positive psychology as a happiness turn within psychology. She suggests that instead of assuming happiness as found in “happy persons,” we consider how claims to happiness make certain forms of personhood valuable. “Attributions of happiness might be how social norms and ideals become affective, as if relative proximity to those norms and ideals creates happiness” (Ahmed 2010: 11). In this book, both Yoshimizu and Jie Yang adopt this notion of happiness through analysis of the happiness of marginalized individuals promoted by the Japanese and Chinese governments.
