Welcome to the Emotional Circus! The seminar is part of Circus’ seminar series on research on emotions and affect across disciplines at Uppsala University. All researchers interested in these aspects are welcome to attend.

How much emojis should you be using when replying to your new Tinder match? How do successful streamers attract and sustain an audience? Subtle patterns of interaction—implicit communication mechanisms—turn out to be key in creating emotional engagement through a screen. But are these fundamentally different from offline interactions? Jacob Strandell, sociologist and postdoc at SLU, will present current research. Readings will be distributed to registered participants before the seminar.
