Affective (or ‘affect’) is a broad, encompassing term that is understood here to refer to the capacities of entities to physically, psychologically, emotionally or socially change their state. This usage is based on new materialist theory; it focuses attention on how matter changes through intra-actions enabled by assemblages. The emphasis here is on flows and entanglements that connect human and non-human entities.
