Why Film Studies Needs More Fine-Grained Emotion Terms…and Why Phenomenology Might Help
Aesthetics Research Centre seminar with Dr Julian Hanich (University of Groningen)

In this talk Dr Julia Hanich will make a threefold proposal: I claim that (a) film studies, due to an overly strong focus on a few standard emotions, lacks a fine-grained lexicon of emotions spectators experience when watching films, that (b) it would be beneficial for research conducted in the field to introduce more granular and well-defined emotion terms and that (c) the specific subfield of 'phenomenology of emotions' might help. Drawing on my previous studies on different forms of fear, disgust and being moved, I will try to elucidate why the phenomenology of emotions has specific resources to contribute.​Dr Julian Hanich is an Assistant Professor of Film Studies in the Department of Arts, Culture and Media at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands Everyone welcome.
