TEMPORARY WORKING GROUP
The main objective of TWG Affect, Emotion & Media is to provide a platform for media and communication scholars that allows dialogue and productive exchange on interdisciplinary approaches to researching the interplay between affect and media.
Bridging the long-standing dichotomies of reason and emotion or mind and body, TWG members work on developing theoretical and methodological concepts that appreciate how affect and emotions emerge in interactions among journalism, media technologies, media texts, film, art, mediated cultural productions, social media platforms, and publics.
The working group provides insights about affect and emotions to the academic field, which allows researchers to propose answers to pressing issues societies are facing, such as hate-speech, populism, decreasing trust in journalism, debates around exclusion and inclusion in cultural production, among others.
