The seminar is part of Circus’ seminar series on research on emotions and affect across disciplines at Uppsala University. All researchers interested in these aspects are welcome to attend.

Emotions and affects are staple aspects of cinema. They are displayed on screen, acted and choreographed, and they are evoked in audiences. It is hardly surprising, then, there is a huge literature on emotions in cinema. In this seminar we make a first dip into this broad area of research by looking at two key texts, one with a psychoanalytic approach and one with a cognitive approach. 

Newcomers to Emotional Circus: contact Ingrid Berg, ingrid.berg@circus.uu.se , for information on how to register and get access to the readings.
