the “near sphere” / self-structuring effects of shame - what can I do, what can I do well, how do I do things in a way that will avoid shaming, and so on - infelicity, the violation, goofing, fucking up, inborn inadequacy, failure, stage fright at, “historical conventions” - mutate them or queer them - but induce also shaming and punishment (which appear sometimes as perlocutionary ripples, drifting out from and fading away with temporal distance from the shame-inducing event, or as traumatic (triggering) - with an autonomous (self-activating, self-amplifying) drift - sometimes as explicit challenge (defiance), sometimes as unintended, unforeseen, “naive” deviation)
and see the “stress epidemic” stuff in Wilson 2004 - p. 24
plus the “intersubjective event” of blushing - p. 75
plus something about the autonomous self-amplification of an affect - def. in Tomkins but possibly in Wilson, also here (on triggering)
hermeneutics of the selfie
Foucault lectured on the hermeneutics of the self. I wonder if he ever talked about kenosis, the emptying or negation of the self, or the will of the self, to leave only a corporeal frame for the divine will. Could there be a hermeneutics of kenosis? That might be to ask, can you unpack and interpret an empty frame?
