3. “Manifesto of the V21 Collective,” V21 Collective, http://v21collective.org/manifesto-of-the-v21-collective-ten-theses/ (accessed December 28, 2017). Amanda Anderson notes the odd absence of the hermeneutics of suspicion in the V21 Manifesto, which offers an almost entirely contrasting image of collective critical mood from Felski's, though in a sense it might not have been possible without the attention to mood Sedgwick initiated and Felski elaborated (“Therapeutic Criticism,” NOVEL: A Forum on Fiction 50, no. 3 (2017): 321–28, 321).

As Sianne Ngai and Lauren Berlant suggest, the reconfiguration of agency by affective shifts can serve to diagnose the social situations that engender affects without offering transformative potential. See Ngai, , Ugly Feelings (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 2005); and Berlant. Even for Kathleen Stewart, who evokes with great nuance an “ordinary affect” that constitutes “a surging, a rubbing, a connection of some kind” that makes “the world … still tentative, charged, overwhelming, and alive,” nonetheless, “this is not a good thing or a bad thing” (Ordinary Affects [Durham: Duke University Press, 2007], 128).
