Symposia: 221/112 - Collective Emotions, Collective Gatherings, and Emotional Synchronization

Wednesday 5 July
9.00 - 10.40 h.
Machuca
Collective emotional events (terrorist attacks, natural/technological disasters, collective losses…) trigger search for information and social sharing of emotions. Presented research examined such social responses as emotional synchronization following upheavals. Findings are discussed in reference to demonstrated self-transcendence effects of synchronization.
