Amidst prevailing debates that construe rationality and emotionality as polar opposites, this book explores the manner in which emotions shape not only prevailing conceptions of rationality, but also culture in general terms, making room for us to speak of an 'emotional culture' specific to late-modern societies. Presenting case studies involving cultural artefacts, narratives found in fictional and non-fictional literature and television programs, speech patterns and self-talk, fashion, and social networking practices, The Emotions and Cultural Analysis sheds light on the relationship between emotion and culture and the ways in which emotion can be harnessed for the purposes of cultural analysis. An interdisciplinary volume containing the latest research from sociology, philosophy, literary studies, linguistics, and communication, this book will be of interest to those working on the sociology and philosophy of emotion, cultural studies, and cultural theory.

'Emotions are a daily puzzle for many of us, and a research goldmine for the cultural analyst. This timely collection appeals to the growing numbers of scholars in the social sciences and humanities who are getting interested in emotions and how to study them empirically. It also offers a theoretically nuanced palette of perspectives on the role of emotions in everyday life.'Roberta Sassatelli, University of Milan, Italy'The emotional turn is now a fait accompli, in various disciplines as sociology, psychology, philosophy and history. Yet, rarely do these disciplines speak to each other about emotions. This is exactly what this book manages to do by examining such crucial issues as the relationship of emotions to culture, the psychologization of human relations, the role of reflexivity in emotional life, and emotions as expressions of and reactions to cultural norms. This is a lively and timely exchange which significantly furthers our understanding of the intricate relationship between culture and emotions.'Eva Illouz, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel and author of Why Love Hurts: A Sociological Explanation
