Love as a Collective Action
Latin America, Emotions and Interstitial Practices
Adrian Scribano, National Scientific and Technical Research Council,
Series: Routledge Studies in the Sociology of Emotions
The book proposes love not only as an effect or trait of a society, but also as an analytical tool for better understanding the processes of social structuring. It connects a sociology of bodies/emotions with a specific perspective on collective action and links conflictual structures and the politics of sensibilities in six Latin American countries by using a strategy of inquiry attuned to current patterns of social transformation, that of digital ethnography. This work is of interest to those who want to know which emotions are the prevailing in Latin America, and all researchers and students who are interested in the connection between conflict, society and emotions.
