Stephane Baele, Gregorio Bettiza, and Todd Hall (Oxford) - Emotions Entrepreneurs in World Politics

A Department of Politics seminar
Date23 October 2019
Time12:30 to 13:30
PlaceAmory A239C

Emotions have garnered increasing attention in IR, yet the dynamics through which some emotions become prevalent in certain situations are not yet fully conceptualized. We highlight the role of “emotions entrepreneurs”, i.e. political figures who instrumentally prompt a certain emotional experience among audiences.

Attuning to the aims, tactics, context and determinants of success of emotions entrepreneurs contributes to a better understanding of the intensification of, or shift in, particular emotional configurations among specific social groups at specific moments.
