"What role play affects and emotions in mass mobilization? Under which conditions does their politicization become emancipatory, and under what conditions are they authoritarian? Mass protests ignite with affective impulses: The shared experience of violence and oppression becomes a key promoter for emancipatory movements when suffering and fear are turning into rage. Organizing rage over structural violence repeatedly finds expression in queer-feminist and decolonial mass protests on the one hand. On the other hand, emotions are regressively transformed into resentment and hatred against marginalized groups under right-wing populists and authoritarianism. This workshop aims to understand the role of emotions in mass mobilization from a feminist-activist and socio-psychological perspective." (HAU)
