About this Event

Emotions are subjective conscious feelings that are linked to internal psychological and physiological states and influenced by the environment which surrounds us. They are important influences on our well-being and behaviour. But there is much yet to understand about what emotions are; how they are linked to culture, time and place; and how they guide our choices in life? How also might the study of emotions be integrated into the study of social, political, economic, and cultural phenomenon? This Conversation will explore these questions. The following list will provide a starting point for our conversations, and also highlights the breadth and potential for future collaborative working across the university in this field.

1. How do emotions interact with cognition to influence our attitudes and behaviour?

2. How does culture influence the way we express and control our emotions?

3. How do the body and the brain influence emotional experience?

4. How we can integrate the study of emotions into other disciplines and research projects?
