Public Emotions

Affective Collectivity in Audiences
Politische Reden, Theaterperformances, Fernsehshows, Facebookposts, Konzerte, Sportevents, Instagrambeiträge, religiöse Zeremonien, Gerichtsverhandlungen – derart heterogene und in vielerlei Hinsicht nicht vergleichbare soziale und kulturelle Phänomene haben eines gemeinsam: Sie wenden sich an ein Publikum, benötigen und konstituieren dieses. Die Tagung ‘Public Emotions. Affective Collectivity in Audiences’ widmet sich gegenwärtigen Erscheinungsformen von Publika und untersucht, welche Rolle diese in heutigen mobilen, medialisierten und vernetzten Gesellschaften spielen. Da Publikum als ein kollektives Phänomen zu verstehen ist, widmet sich die Tagung insbesondere kollektiven Formen von Handlungen und Emotionen und deren Verschränkungen. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit wird der spezifischen Wirkung von Publika zuteil und der Rolle, die Affekte und Emotionen dabei spielen –  sowie Formen affektiver Kollektivität.

The conference ‘Public Emotions. Affective Collectivity in Audiences’ discusses contemporary forms and activities of audiences and explores their changing roles in today’s mobile, mediated, and networked societies. As audiences are a collective phenomenon, the conference highlights collective forms of actions and emotions and their entanglement. Our special attention is drawn to the specific agency of audiences, and to the role of affects and emotions in audiences – especially forms of affective collectivity.Christopher Balme
