Abstract

In this session I shall explore Sociology's complex relationship to emotions, looking at the 'passion' and 'passionlessness' of the early discipline and its later political emotions in areas such as gender and disability. But my main focus will be on how contemporary sociology can capture and represent the emotions of ordinary folk in everyday life. This entails less a sociology passionate about its own voice and more a sociology able to recognise and deal with the emotions of ordinary people.
