In her first three books, Patricia Clough gave sociology a new subject, to replace the static, fully conscious, volitional, 19th century “self” who was not only the sole source of meaning but the author of society itself. In her newest work – The Affective Turn: Theorizing the Social (Duke University Press, forthcoming) – Patricia leads sociology beyond the subject to rethink “society” since, since as she says, “it is not from the position of the subject that sociality can now be grasped” (forthcoming, p. 32).
