This editorial for the special issue Mapping Affect Studies, I briefly introduce therelevance to explore the intersections between affect studies and other relevantfields for social sciences and humanities. To create a frame to explore such inter-sections, I explore the affective turn in relation to its epistemological/ontologicalassumptions, its methodological challenges, and the politics of the affective turn.Then, I offer some notes on two intersections with fields that are missing in thisSpecial issue: the intersection between affect and feminism, and affect and disabil-ity. I finish this introduction by presenting the articles of the special issue.
