    The Construction of Emotion in Interactions, Relationships, and Cultures.Michael Boiger & Batja Mesquita - 2012 - Emotion Review 4 (3):221-229.
    Emotions are engagements with a continuously changing world of social relationships. In the present article, we propose that emotions are therefore best conceived as ongoing, dynamic, and interactive processes that are socially constructed. We review evidence for three social contexts of emotion construction that are embedded in each other: The unfolding of emotion within interactions, the mutual constitution of emotion and relationships, and the shaping of emotion at the level of the larger cultural context. Finally, we point to interdependencies amongst (...)

    Emotions in Context: A Sociodynamic Model of Emotions.Batja Mesquita & Michael Boiger - 2014 - Emotion Review 6 (4):298-302.
    We propose a sociodynamic model of emotions, in which emotions are seen as dynamic systems that emerge from the interactions and relationships in which they take place. Our model does not deny that emotions are biologically constrained, yet it takes seriously that emotions are situated in specific contexts. We conceive emotions as largely functional to the sociocultural environment in which they occur; this is so because sociocultural environments foster the emergence of emotions that positively contribute to social cohesion. The role (...)

    Cultural Differences in Emotion Suppression in Belgian and Japanese Couples: A Social Functional Model.Anna Schouten, Michael Boiger, Alexander Kirchner-Häusler, Yukiko Uchida & Batja Mesquita - 2019 - Frontiers in Psychology 11.
    Emotion suppression has been found to have negative psychological and social consequences in Western cultural contexts. Yet, in some other cultural contexts, emotion suppression is less likely to have negative consequences; relatedly, emotion suppression is also more common in those East-Asian cultural contexts. In a dyadic conflict study, we aim to conceptually replicate cultural differences found in previous research with respect to the prevalence and consequences of emotion suppression,and extend previous research by testing whether cultural differences are larger for some (...)

    Emotion Science Needs to Account for the Social World.Michael Boiger & Batja Mesquita - 2012 - Emotion Review 4 (3):236-237.
    Emotions are complex processes that are constrained by biology, but not fully explained without taking into account the social context in which they develop. Mapping these contexts, and understanding how and under which conditions they shape emotions, is an essential task for the science of emotions; a task that—at least in psychology—has been neglected. The three commentaries each offer some interesting reflections on exactly this task.

    Humiliated Fury is Not Universal: The Co-Occurrence of Anger and Shame in the United States and Japan.Alexander Kirchner, Michael Boiger, Yukiko Uchida, Vinai Norasakkunkit, Philippe Verduyn & Batja Mesquita - 2017 - Cognition and Emotion 32 (6):1317-1328.
    ABSTRACTIt has been widely believed that individuals transform high-intensity shame into anger because shame is unbearably painful. This phenomenon was first coined “humiliated fury,” and it has since received empirical support. The current research tests the novel hypothesis that shame-related anger is not universal, yet hinges on the cultural meanings of anger and shame. Two studies compared the occurrence of shame-related anger in North American cultural contexts to its occurrence in Japanese contexts. In a daily-diary study, participants rated anger and (...)
