Abstract

This essay explores the sociality of moods as a sociality that does not simply bring us together. Reflecting specifically on how attunement creates strangers (as those who are only dimly perceived) the essay explores how some have to work to become attuned to others. The essay concludes by reflecting on how national moods are measured and made, taking up the political potential of affect aliens, those who are alienated from the nation by virtue of how they are affected.
