Dates: 8-9 September 2011 Venue: Woolley Common Room, University of Sydney
Marjorie Curry Woods (University of Texas), Jane Roscoe (Programming Executive, SBS Television)
From loneliness to anger, fear to love, emotions shape our lives and our worlds.
But are emotions themselves also shaped to suit us? If so, who does the shaping and how is it achieved?
This collaboratory explores the history of the manufacture of emotions from the classrooms of medieval Europe through to Indigenous song and the TV screens and billboards of contemporary Australia.
Speakers from a diverse range of disciplinary backgrounds will consider how emotions may be manufactured and deployed in literature, song, advertising, reality TV, the practice of psychology and international politics.
