RIZO GARCIA, Marta. Communication, body, and emotions. Incorporating emotional dimension to communication research. Comun. soc [online]. 2022, vol.19, e8258.  Epub Oct 03, 2022. ISSN 0188-252X.

This essay presents the need to incorporate the affective and bodily dimension in communication research. The theoretical perspective is framed in the “Affective Turn” and in the studies on corporeality, from which is presented a proposal of conceptual articulation between body, communication, and emotions. The methodological strategy is based on documentary research and interpretation. The essay provides elements to think about human communication from a point of view that transcends the media and integrates the corporal and the affective as basic axes.

Keywords : Body; interpersonal communication; emotions; affections; communication theory.
