Description

Emotions and Political Change, presented by Dr Emma Hutchison

All are welcome to attend our free event, presented by The University of Queensland's School of Political Science and International Studies and the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia. For catering purposes and as capacity is limited, please register by Friday 25 October 2019.

About the lecture: Emotions abound and pervade contemporary local and global politics. From refugees and Indigenous recognition to populism and international conflict, emotions are powerful forces that divide and unite societies. In this lecture, Dr Hutchison discusses these and other key political and ethical issues through her existing and future research. She traces the crucial roles emotions play in shaping political phenomena, agendas and priorities. To do so, she discusses the emergence, evolution and current role of humanitarianism in world politics. Here she shows how emotions not only frame and constrain the practice of humanitarian responsibility but can also generate changes in norms and practices. Dr Hutchison will then reflect more generally on how an appreciation of emotions can help us to better understand the key challenges of our day and, in turn, work towards more reflexive and potentially just social and political change.

About the presenter: Dr Emma Hutchison is an Australian Research Council DECRA Fellow in the School of Political Science and International Studies at The University of Queensland. Her work focuses on emotions and trauma in world politics, particularly in relation to security, humanitarianism and international aid. She has published across these areas in numerous academic journals and books. Her book, Affective Communities in World Politics: Collective Emotions After Trauma (Cambridge University Press, 2016) was awarded the British International Studies Association Susan Strange Book Prize as well as the International Studies Association Theory Section Best Book Prize.
