Event:  Emotions and Emotion Concepts

The goal of this conference is to bring together philosophers, linguists, psychologist, and neuroscientists to discuss and develop some avenues for successfully tackling issues regarding:
  • the nature of emotion
  • the structure of emotion concepts
  • how folk understanding and scientific operationalization of emotion terms (should) relate to each other
The event organizers invite contributions addressing these and related questions for presentation at the conference. They also invite submissions featuring empirical work or planned experimental studies on emotion concepts. There will be talks by the keynote speakers as well as several selected speakers from the Call for Abstracts.
