TG08 Society and Emotions



Established in 2016

Objectives

The sociology of emotions constitutes a vibrant research field within the broader discipline of sociology. It draws upon 40 years of history of inquiry into emotions in social contexts. It has made important contributions to sociological theorizing and historical sociology as well as the sociology of organizations, professions, technology, social movements and power, as well as numerous other sociological fields.

The Thematic Group 08 on Society and Emotions will allow to pool together hitherto scattered knowledge in this field of research. While learning from national and continental diversities, it aims to accelerate the development. Apart from sociologists, any interested researchers coming from work organizations, management, social work, economics, medicine, law, cultural studies, history, philosophy, social movement activism or any other field of activity in which emotions possess high relevance are welcome to join.

The Thematic Work Group on Society and Emotions would pursue the following aims: (i) to encourage the worldwide exchange of research findings, methodological advances and theoretical developments relevant to the sociology of emotions; (ii) to promote international meetings and research collaboration by scholars and practitioners interested in the sociology of emotions; (iii) to develop international contacts among sociologists,  professionals and social  activists interested in the sociology of emotions; and (iv) to support shared publication efforts.
