With contributions from an international range of leading and emerging scholars in their fields, The Routledge Handbook of Language and Emotion is an indispensable resource for students and researchers who are interested in incorporating interdisciplinary perspectives on language and emotion into their work.
"This Handbook brings together a wide range of cases, authors, and disciplinary approaches to a topic of great importance. The chapters variously consider major issues such as how the notions of "language" and "emotion" have been understood in different times and places, how they are bound up with norms and values, and how they are linked to conceptions of body, reason, self, and society. The collection’s many strong contributions outline the state of the art on this topic and make the volume an indispensable aid to scholars and students alike."
Judith Irvine, University of Michigan, USA
