VIDEO: Feeling Race In The Public Eye | ASA Conference Plenary Panel – Philadelphia

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]”With the theme, “Feeling Race: An Invitation to Explore Racialized Emotions,” we encourage sociologists to engage, study, and theorize the multiple ways in which emotions and feelings matter in racial affairs. We “feel race” in the streets, stores, and the workplace; we “feel race” in friendships and in romantic relations; we even “feel race” in events we do not code as racial such as playing video games or watching movies. Albeit we welcome creative ways of addressing the theme, we want to push the analysis of racialized emotions in two specific ways. First, to date most of the analysis on the feelings and emotions associated with racial dynamics has focused on negative emotions (i.e., anger, hate, anxiety, and fear). Hence, we ask analysts to also examine positive racialized emotions such as pride, happiness, comfort, empathy, solidarity, and pleasure. Second, because racialized emotions are relational, sociologists should address the emotions of all actors, dominant as well as subordinated, in racialized settings, situations, and interactions.” – ASA[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_video link=”″ align=”center”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=”.vc_custom_1535301353210{background-color: #eaeaea !important;}”][vc_column][vc_empty_space height=”12px”][vc_column_text]
