Abstract

This paper outlines the resources available to researchers interested in approximating the domains of affect, emotion, and assemblage in today's cultural landscapes of consumption. The extended introduction includes a brief review of recent methodological innovations in accessing embodied experience and materiality more generally. Next, I introduce the Abasto Shopping Mall in central Buenos Aires and outline how I approached four months of fieldwork there in 2010 and 2011. I then present the key findings before concluding with a discussion on how to navigate recent empirical and theoretical contributions to the emerging geographies of consumption that are oriented toward affect, emotion, assemblage, and technologies of biopolitical subjectivity.
