Bristol University Press

Bristol University Press, and its imprint Policy Press, are committed to publishing high-impact empirical and theoretical works across the social sciences. We produce leading works in the field, to include the Emotions and Society journal which is published in association with the ESA’s Sociology of Emotions RN11.

Emotions and Society aims to publish high-quality, original peer-reviewed articles which advance theoretical and empirical understanding of emotions in social life. A key aim of the Journal is to develop both a uniquely sociological perspective on emotions, while also engaging in interdisciplinary exchanges.
