The research unit Sociology of Emotion analyzes emotion and affect in the context of culture and social structure. Our current research focus is on migration and integration, political populism and risk practices in politics and the financial sector. We investigate these topics together with emotion researchers from other disciplines, for instance in the CRC Affective Societies and the joint BMBF project AFFIN.
