How Emotions Are Made in Talk brings together an exciting collection of cutting-edge interactional research examining emotions and affectivity as social actions. The international selection of scholars draw on ethnomethodology and conversation analysis applied to a range of settings including sports, workplaces, telephone calls, classrooms, friends and healthcare. The aim of the book is to provide new insights into how emotions are produced as social actions in relation to, for example, encouragement, responsibility, crying, objects, empathy, joy, surprise, touch, and pain. This volume should be of interest to interactional scholars and researchers interested in social approaches to emotion, and addresses a range of scholarship across the disciplines of sociology, communication, psychology, linguistics, and anthropology.

Table of Contents
“With ten methodologically coherent contributions organized into three thematic parts – on emotions and the social order, timing and strategies for revealing and negotiating emotions in conversations, and lastly the display of emotions across modalities – the volume is a model for how to produce meaningful knowledge in the context of a joint volume. In a remarkably clear and comprehensive introduction, Weatherall and Robles explain how the collection builds upon contributions from Peräkylä and Sorjonen (2012), to advance understanding of particular aspects of their topic.”
