Between Us: How Cultures Create Emotions

Batja Mesquita, University of Leuven, Belgium

I will take you on the journey that my own research has taken me on to show that emotions are not universal responses coming from within but that we craft our emotions to attune them to the values, norms, and practices of the cultural worlds outside our individual selves. Emotions are learned and coconstructed during our many everyday social interactions. What makes us human is not that emotions are identical for all but that they connect us to others, in our direct environment and in our broader cultural context. I argue that appreciating that emotions are fundamentally linked to our outside worlds—and that we have a role in creating and changing them—is a bridge to more effective relationships in all of the many multicultural spaces in our communities.
