Democracy and Emotion

Download: Audio

Speaker(s): Professor James Jasper

Recorded on 29 January 2013 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

On those rare occasions when democracy has emerged in history, emotions have been used to define who is a full citizen. Can a new vision of emotions help us protect, repair, and extend democracy rather than curtailing it?

James Jasper is professor of sociology at The Graduate Center, City University of New York.
