Panel “Emotions and the Public Sphere”
In the last two decades, attempts have been made to elaborate theoretical models that are able to deal with public aspects of emotion, focusing on its micro-political capacities, that is, its potential to reinforce, alter or dramatize the macro-relations of power and hierarchy in which interpersonal relations are embedded. This panel invites contributors to think about the roles the emergence, suppression or display of emotions play in public realms of life, particularly those of work relations, social and cultural movements and political issues. There are four major lines of inquiry that this panel intends to contemplate: a - theoretical models in the research of micro-politics of emotions; b - emotions and violence; c - emotions and cultural/social movements; and d - the rationality/emotionality duality in work places.
