H-Emotions will provide a discussion forum for scholars of emotion, affect, and sentiment across time and space. We welcome subscribers from all fields of study throughout the world!
Registration is open for the symposium 'Signs of Life: Puppetry, Emotions, Embodiment and Empathy'. Held at QMUL on October 20 14.00-17.30, 'Signs of Life' asks what role can puppetry play in unravelling the psychology of empathy and our ability to read each other’s emotions? How is it that we can we so easily feel apparently real emotions when watching bodies that are not even flesh and blood? Do we react differently to puppets, robots, avatars and people? And can we ever really ‘suspend disbelief’?
