Emotions and Institutions

Research Agenda 2016-2017
As distinguished research professor Duyvendak is the project leader of the Interdisciplinary Research Program Emotions & Institutions. This Program is oriented around organizing and executing research from across a range of disciplines, lecture series and panel discussions. In 2015 Duyvendak started with the lecture series ‘Civic affects’ with speakers from the field of Political science, Anthropology, Social Geography and research institutions such as SCP.
In December 2016 this Research Program started extensively collaborating with (social) psychologists who systematically have been dealing with the study of emotions in-context. In the methodological workshop ‘Researching Emotions’ emotions are studied at various levels and across disciplines and theoretical en methodological backgrounds.
Collaborating with Agneta Fischer in 2017 the Research Program will start with a lecture series on ‘Political Resentment’, oriented around the rise of the Populist politics in the Netherlands.
