Drawing on narrative research conducted in the UK about self-injury and embodiment, this article presents a novel sociological analysis of self-injury, utilizing the concept of emotion work. By focusing explicitly on embodied methods of ‘doing’ emotion work, the article highlights the under-recognized importance of examining the practical, corporeal practices that can be involved in emotion work. I reflect on the sociological and theoretical significance of examining self-injury as embodied emotion work – both as an analytic concept and as a narrative resource.
FingerprintDive into the research topics of 'Self-injury as Embodied Emotion Work: Managing Rationality, Emotions and Bodies'. Together they form a unique fingerprint.
