Seminar on Emotion
PSYC 365
Spring 2011
Section: 01  

This seminar aims to provide an intensive introduction to what emotions are and how they influence our relations with other people. The seminar will cover general theory on emotion as well as theory on specific emotions (e.g., anger, shame, envy, humiliation). As emotions are multicomponential processes, we will examine how the social context shapes different components of the emotion process, e.g., phenomenological experience, regulation, and expression of emotion. Moreover, we will explore how emotions operate at the individual, interpersonal, intergroup, and cultural levels of analysis.

Essential Capabilities: Speaking, Writing
This seminar includes an oral presentation. This presentation will allow students to practice speaking and elaborating arguments in front of an audience. Students will also need to write weekly reaction papers and a final paper. These assignments aim to provide students with an opportunity to improve their writing skills.
