Audience Emotions in Sports and Religion (completed with June 2019)

The research project examines audience emotions in the context of professional football and religious mass events. By analyzing their forms of expression, their framing and the knowledge they transmit the study will use the means of videography, media data as well as ethnography to answer questions on how and which emotions are created in collectives, which shifts exist within and between the emotional repertoires of both cultural areas and which forms and limits of affective resonance are observable.
