The Emotions Study Group hosts an annual symposium bringing together study group members and others who are interested in the social sciences of emotion to share their work and build relationships. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s symposium was held online on Twitter.
The 2020 symposium, Emotions Across Time & Space, took place on Monday, 27th April, 2020. We were fortunate to be joined by two brilliant plenary presenters, Dr Nadena Doharty and Dr Rebecca Olson, as well as a range of other scholars producing exciting work in the field of emotions. The programme for the event can be viewed below and downloaded at the bottom of this page. You can follow the links below to see copies of the Twitter presentations, leave comments, and find contact details for the presenters. It is our hope that the online event will generate rich dialogue across locales and disciplines, so please liberally take up the opportunity to reach out to the presenters about their work!
