Bristol University Pressis pleased to announce an exciting new journal for 2019, Emotions and Society.
Aims and Scope
Emotions and Society aims to publish high-quality, original peer-reviewed articles which advance theoretical and empirical understanding of emotions in social life.It is associated with the European Sociological Association(ESA)Research Network on Emotions, but seekssubmissions from a wide range of international authors writing in this area. The sociology ofemotions has developed uniqueperspectives on emotionsthat attend to the social construction of emotions and the ways in which emotions are embedded in social structures and inhere in social processes. The Journal seeksto expand thelargely unexhausted potential for developing innovative approaches not only to emotions per se, but through it to the socialgenerally..All methodological approaches to studying emotions are welcome, but they should demonstrate rigour and be framed in ways that will be of interest to sociologically inclined scholars. A key feature of the Journal will be to develop both a uniquely sociological perspective on emotions, while alsoengaging in interdisciplinary exchanges. This interdisciplinary character will emerge not only from the interdisciplinarityof present scholarly debates on emotions, but from the diversity of disciplines represented inthe ESA Research Network.We welcomesubmissions from neighbouring disciplines, especially cultural studies, history, philosophy and social psychology.Psychological social psychology of emotions is quite well represented in existing journals and papers will be considered only insofar as their focus is interactional rather than biological, and the same reservation goes for psychology of emotions at large. The Journal seeks to publish articles based on original research into the social aspects of emotionsand emotional life. This may include contributions to theoretical debates in the area. Substantial review articles may also be considered.Principally we are looking for theoretical or theoretically informed empirical papers that engage with key concepts and debates of interest to sociologistsof emotion, even if they do so from outside the discipline.
