PhD Course: Sociology of Emotions – Theories and applications, 7,5 higher education credits, fall 2019

The study of emotions is inherently multidisciplinary as it engages with biological and psychological as well as social and cultural theory and research. With this point of departure, the focus of the sociological discipline, as well as of this course, is on the social, and sociologically relevant, aspects of emotions. The course offers a broad overview of theories and research in the sociology of emotions, spanning from the classics to contemporary theories and research. Both structural and situational/interactional approaches to the role of emotions in social life are explored. Part of the course deals with ongoing research, through which there is opportunity to study and discuss various methods employed and ways to apply and develop theory in the analysis of empirical data.

The course offers both a broad perspective on the state of the art of the sociology of emotions, as well as in-depth specialization in the chosen area.

The course is offered in collaboration between The Department of Sociology at the University of Copenhagen, the Department of Sociology and Work Science at the University of Gothenburg and the Department of Sociology and Social Work at Aalborg University.

The course runs on half-time (50%) over ten weeks.
