Anthropology of Emotion
About the research area
In recent years, the study of human emotion has become a subject of growing interest across diverse academic disciplines spanning the humanities and the natural and social sciences. Increasingly it is establishing itself as an important field of interdisciplinary inquiry, ... a fact reflected in the work of the Collaborative Research Center (CRC) 1171 “Affective Societies: Dynamics of Social Coexistence in Mobile Worlds”(Director Prof. Dr. Birgitt Rötter-Rössler) and the interdisciplinary research projects “The Researcher’s Affects” and “Knowledge Complexity” (K-PLEX)” (both directed by Prof. Dr. Thomas Stodulka) at FU Berlin.
