Emotions and Society seeks paper proposals for a special issue on Fear.

This special issue seeks to bring together the different approaches of different paradigms and to make a significant contribution to the theoretical and empirical conceptualization of fear, addressing key unanswered questions such as:

How can we theoretically understand fear and associated feelings? In which ways is fear socially (trans-)formed? How is fear implicated in and intertwined with the central social science categories such as power, meaning, or social practice, and how does fear become explicable through these categories? What is the place of fear within the sociology of emotions? How can we methodologically conceptualize and empirically investigate different types of fear or, for that matter, its relationship to anxiety, panic, and related phenomena?

Proposals (about one page) are due by May 17th, 2021. Feedback on the acceptance of proposals will be provided by June 21st 2021. In case of acceptance, full papers are to be submitted by October 15th 2021.
