Feeling political: how intimacy and everyday life make political identities


Project summary

This project aims to create dialogue between scholars working in discrete fields of politics and everyday emotions, and to consolidate a critical mass at DU working in the field of ‘feeling political’ (intimacies, politics  and everyday life) and build research capacity.

This project builds upon an interdisciplinary reading group, bringing typically discrete fields of scholarship (politics and emotions), disciplines (arts and social sciences) & methodologies (quantitative and qualitative; textual, material and visual) into dialogue. A forthcoming series of events seeks to formalise this network, consolidate critical mass, and identify/develop key interdisciplinary research and methodological questions.
