Seminar: Why Films Studies Needs More Fine-Grained Emotions Terms... and Why Phenomenology Might Help

3 Nov 2018 - 12:30

 

Join us on Thursday 8 November 2018 at 12H00 in AC Jordan 4A for a seminar by CFMS "Why Films Studies Needs More Fine-Grained Emotions Terms... and Why Phenomenology Might Help". 

Abstract: In this talk I will make a threefold proposal: I claim that (a) film studies, due to an overly strong focus on a few standard emotions, lacks a fine-grained lexicon of emotions spectators experience when watching films, that (b) it would be beneficial for research conducted in the field to introduce more granular and well-defined emotion terms and that (c) the specific subfield of ‘phenomenology of emotions’ might help. Drawing on my previous studies on different forms of fear, disgust and being moved, I will try to elucidate why the phenomenology of emotions has specific resources to contribute.

This #CFMS Research seminar will be presented by Prof. Julian Hanich from the University of Groningen.

Snacks will be served from 11H30 in A207.
