Flexibilisation processes characteristic of post-Fordist societies contribute to the constitution of liquid subjectivities reconfigured depending on productive and consumerist requirements. The consolidation of neoliberalism demands emotional elasticity and commodified sexuality in heteropatrialcal and capitalist terms. Affects and bodies are valued in terms of its malleability and adaptation to societal norms, with defined areas restricted to or facilitated for privileged bodies. In this situation, different academic and activist fronts such as feminism, disability studies or queer and trasnfeminist politics offer both analysis and courses of action that allow the personal and structural transformation of our constructions of subjectivity and corporeality.

The congress Affect, Embodiment and Politics is a meeting place for activist and academics to reflect on some current constructs and develop policies and political actions to think and inhabit the intimate and structural changes spanning contemporary subjectivities.
