Discrimination, Violence and Emotions

Monday, 16 July 2018: 15:30-17:20
TG08 Society and Emotions (host committee)

Language: Spanish, French and English

The problem of various forms of violence and their relationship to emotions is interpreted differently depending on how they fit into the particular - academic, political, social or cultural - agenda. Everyday life in the Global South is marked by complex relationships between discrimination, violence and emotions. Multiple forms of discrimination become expressed in various types of migration, expulsion and racialization.  Various stigmatization practices, generating such groups as the “disabled”,  the “black” or the “poor”,  become normalized and accepted. Discrimination produces threats, fears and suffering. These are part and parcel of the practices of feeling that discrimination produces and reproduces in societies anchored in consumption of commodities. Discrimination is repeatedly directed at “weak” groups, such as women or children or the poor. It systematically generates femicide, infanticide, hunger, drugs, functional illiteracy and the invisibility of disability. Taking up the congress theme we welcome papers on discrimination as a form of power exercise often posing a threat of or resulting in violence that in its turn leads to a variety of emotions. All contemporary theoretical, methodological and epistemic approaches are welcome.
