Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Course description:

In this seminar we will deal with the social, cultural and political 'logics' of emotions which are emerging in contemporary global processes. Three main questions will provide the frame for approaching these 'logics': First, what is the mutual relation between social, economic, political and affective processes; second, why and how do particular emotions emerge and circulate in an intensely global world; and third, what are the impacts of affective 'logics' on individuals and various collectives.
Based on a broad range of topics, ethnographies, and theories of affect we get profound insight into the sociality of emotions in a globalised world. At the same time, we learn to comprehend that emotions constitute an elementary 'intimate field' of contemporary globalisation and power relations.

A particular emphasis will be on learning and improving those performance skills which are required at conferences (poster presentations, panels with distinct roles). At the end of the term a written final seminar paper will be added to the oral performance.
The course will be supported by the e-learning platform Moodle.
