The study of how emotions are socially patterned is a young and promising field within sociology. This handbook offers a sociological examination of the lived impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic through culture(s) of emotion - from hope to anger, optimism to grief, and courage to boredom.

The Emerald Handbook of the Sociology of Emotions for a Post-Pandemic World considers the dynamics and structures of affect as they have been experienced by local and global populations in a time of global health crisis. Advancing a theoretical agenda in the sociology of emotions and drawing from empirical evidence of emotional impacts, the authors cover a range of philosophical and methodological questions about how to study emotions, and why doing so is critical in turbulent times.

Including policy and planning insights for how to reconcile our emotional lives and collective experiences in a post-pandemic world, this collection is a refreshing contribution to a new and exciting sub-discipline; and is a compelling read for theorists, researchers, and students of the social, cultural, and political sciences.

Industry Reviews

[The Emerald Handbook for the Sociology of Emotions] cover[s] productions from the five continents, [and] it exposes how the pandemic generated changes in the prominence, pattern, and value of some emotions so that we can see the particularities of the different countries as well as the similarities between them. [...] Taking the relationship between bodies/emotions/environment for granted, the Handbook presents emotions from a sociological perspective at no time neglecting that these are physical-psycho-social processes.[...] it presents substantial contributions to thinking about the past, but in the 'meantime', without nostalgia -or nostalgic enough - to reflect on what we were, to think about what we are and to create what we can be."

-- Aldana Boragnio, The American Sociologist
