Welcome to CERN

The Contemporary Emotions Research Network (CERN) is aimed at building the research capacity of academics in, and promoting research on, emotions in contemporary social contexts. It will examine and interlink emotions research from a range of contemporary fields, including sociology, philosophy, politics, law, cultural studies, literature, modern history, education and creative arts and media. CERN will bring together expertise from across these fields, and will offer great scope for inter-disciplinary activity and research.

The network is open to academics and PhD students from all universities in Australia and internationally, and we welcome presentations on new and exciting research on emotions at our events, and interest in forming collaborations for papers, book, grants and other outputs.
