Rita Felski makes a case for “attachment” as a key word for the humanities. The word directs our attention to what carries weight: it has both affective and ethical force. Drawing on a range of examples, she discusses two important aesthetic ties: identification and attunement. Finally, she will clarify how the language of attachment is relevant to pedagogy and to practices of interpretation in the classroom.
