Just Emotions

This chapter introduces the key theoretical concepts drawing on contemporary sociological theorists of interaction and emotions, including Erving Goffman and Randall Collins. Key terms are explained, such as interaction ritual, solidarity, emotional entrainment, emotional energy, short- and long-term emotions, and symbolic representations. Using this framework, the author proposes a micro level theory of restorative justice. This chapter also examines the different methodological approaches to studying ritual used in this research. It emphasizes the importance of deploying mixed methods and micro sociological approaches, including in-depth interviews; conversation analysis; the analysis of face and demeanor; the use of dramaturgy and game-playing metaphors to analyse interaction; and quantitative analysis of micro level variations across a sample of conferences.

Keywords:   ritual theory, microsociology, interaction ritual, justice ritual, solidarity, qualitative methods, quantitative methods
