New Publication: Affective Images: Post-Apartheid Documentary Perspectives

Dear colleagues and friends,

happy late new year + hopefully 2018 has already started well for all!

I am happy to announce that my new book “Affective Images: Post-apartheid Documentary Perspectives“ has just been published by SUNY Press in African Studies / Visual Studies.

Affective Images explores intervisual case studies in relation to migration, xenophobia, and gender.

“In its focus on lens-based media, the book not only tackles some of the questions around the visuality of migration and xenophobia, but also does so using the media (photography and film) that are probably the most complicit in the visual witnessing and translation within this field.” — Rory Bester, coeditor of Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life

Right now it is available as hardcover and an ebook, later it should also become available as a softcover

Please consider suggesting that your libraries order it and contact me or SUNY, if you are interested in a review copy.

More information on the book is available here: http://www.sunypress.edu/p-6472-affective-images.aspx

With all the best wishes, Marietta Kesting
