Sociology of Emotions and Affect Thematic Group
Aims and Objectives
TASA’s Emotions and Affect Thematic Group brings together a growing body of theory, methods and interconnected research on social emotions and affect. This exciting new area contains sociological accounts of the importance of emotions within a range of social spheres. It also recognises that emotions and affect drive the functioning of many social policies, and are the object of policies aimed at improving wellbeing or reducing loneliness or depression or anger-related violence. The relevance of emotions and affect extends to sub-disciplines and there are many new kinds of methodology being developed.
Our objectives are to:
- Explore the role of emotion as a primary sociological concept and force
- Reveal the common emotional and affective components of disciplines and sociological sub-disciplines
- Encourage new and critical theorising on social emotions and affect
- Employ new methodologies in their measurement
- Understand the role of emotion as it relates to the social research and policy process
