    Event synopsis: Emotions are central to embodied experience, and much of what we do as individuals and/or collectives involves responding to emotional experiences, whether of trauma, shame, anger, fear, or guilt, or indeed of joy, love, passion, or empowerment. Our interdisciplinary workshop on Feminist Methodologies: Value, Belief, Emotion therefore aims to explore the nature of emotion and embodied experience, and its significance for feminist research and activism. The workshop will review and investigate feminist methodologies which focus on the role of emotion, and will build on feminist scholarship in this area by bringing together feminist thinkers across disciplinary and methodological boundaries. We will explore: Interdisciplinary approaches to emotion in feminism Linking the role of emotion in philosophical thought, social theory and psychology Innovative methodologies and digital approaches The epistemic value of emotion/affect across disciplines (philosophy, sociology, health sciences) The nature of emotion and embodiment in essence and in representation in all disciplines Narratives and practices of emotion across disciplines: expressions and silences Deconstructing rationality/emotionality, culture/nature, knowledge/body binaries (Re)presentations of affect in film, literature, and creative arts, in spaces and places, etc. Methodological, epistemological and theoretical issues at work in the study of emotion.
