The BSA Emotions Study Group Annual Symposium 2020
This event is on 27 April 2020 9:00am
The sociology of emotions has continued to grow over recent years, illuminating the emotionality of social life across social and historical contexts. The social and political crises facing sociologists at the end of the 21st century’s second decade have coincided with re-evaluations of the sociological canon, increased interest in interdisciplinarity, and richer collaborations between academics and non-academic knowledge producers. This moment of turbulence and opportunity invites us to consider the role of emotions in creating and transforming social relations across the complex entanglements of localities and histories.
For this year’s annual symposium of the British Sociological Association’s Emotions study group – Emotions Across Time & Space – presentations will be given on any area of historically or spacially situated emotionality from scholars working on emotion and affect from across the social sciences and humanities.
ICC Head of Research Kerry Wilson is delighted to be presenting at the symposium in Edinburgh in April. Drawing upon her research conducted as part of an AHRC Leadership Fellowship (2017-19), Kerry’s paper will discuss emotional labour in prisons with a particular focus on prison libraries and affective cultural work.
