The science of human emotion is critical to psychology and the emerging fields of affective computing and human‐robot communication. This seminar provides grounding in major perspectives on emotion and addresses topics that include perception, measurement and elicitation, individual differences, development, affective computing, and intra‐ and interpersonal dynamics of facial and vocal expression. In the latter part of the course, students will introduce and present topics. Weekly reaction papers and a Power Point or Keynote presentation among other assignments will be required.
