CUNY Emotion Workshop
Call for Abstracts
WORKSHOP DATE: May 3, 2019, CUNY Graduate Center
ABSTRACT DEADLINE:  April 8, 2019  

What are emotions?  Are they innate or socially constructed?  How do they enter into consciousness? Can they be unconscious?    What roles do they play in judgment, decision-making, and values?  Are they rational?  Or voluntary?  How are they implicated in bias?  Should some emotions be suppressed?    What is the best analysis of specific emotions, such as anger, love, or awe?    What is valence? What are feelings? Do feelings differ from emotions?   What can be said about other affective constructs such as empathy, desires, or moods?    

This workshop will provide a forum for researchers doing work on emotions and related states. The goal is to share new ideas and lines of inquiry, to develop new reflections, and to foster communication between those of us who are investigating emotions in the New York area, and beyond.
