The World As We Feel It: Talking about emotions across the disciplines

Project Details


Funded by a University of Edinburgh Academic Networking Fund (£3,140)

Dr Marlies Kustatscher (Co-PI), Dr Jessica MacLaren (Co-PI) and Professor Pam Smith (Co-PI)

A series of networking and knowledge exchange events with the aim of stimulating debates about the nature and working of emotions: are they cultural practices, neurochemical or psychosocial processes, or contagious algorithms? Speakers share different ways of conceptualising and researching emotions, and discuss their significance for shaping relationships, identities, inequalities, beliefs, aspirations, bodies, perceptions, health and wellbeing, policies, practices and institutions.
