Ian Burkitt's new book, Emotions and Social Relations

Professor of Social Identity Ian Burkitt¿s new book, Emotions and Social Relations, develops a theory of emotions for the social sciences which reconfigures the understanding of emotion as the product of relations between individuals rather than as experiences which are primarily individual. The theory is developed in connection with historical and cross cultural studies of emotion, empirical studies critiquing the current concept of ‘emotional labour’, and a study of power relations and emotions with reference to the opposition to the Iraq war in 2003.
