Audience emotions in sports and religion

Audience emotions in sports and religion

The research project is focusing on emotions of large audiences at major public events in the fields of sports and religion, particularly in professional football (e.g. European Championship 2016 in France), and in Christian events (e.g. the World Youth Day in Cracow). On the basis of videographic and ethnographic data the project analyses of sequences of collective action, events and the discourses  in order to answer how emotions and affectivity guide collectivities. More specifically the project aims at clarifying (1) how collective emotions are generated, (2) if and how emotional repertoires of religion and sports differ and overlap and (3), what kind of forms and boundaries of affective resonance can be observed in large audiences.

This project (C02) forms part of the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 1171 (CRC 1171) “Affective Societies: Dynamics of Social Coexistence in Mobile Worlds” at the Free University Berlin.

Head of project: Prof. Dr. Hubert Knoblauch

Research associates: Meike Haken (religion) and Michael Wetzels (sport)
