Spring 2021: Emotions and Society

Course Description

Our Spring 2021 Special Topics class is entitled "Emotions and Society."

Emotions can seem deeply personal and individualistic, but social norms and institutions shape what people feel, when they feel, and how they express their feelings. This course explores the social organization of emotions by examining what feeling rules reveal about power and identity in American society. Note: U flag for General Education is pending.

The class will be offered by Dr. Courtney Irby on Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:00 3:15.
