Researcher and 2014 BBC New Generation Thinker Tiffany Watt Smith takes an entertaining and thought-provoking A-Z look at human emotions.

Watt Smith draws on history, anthropology, science, art, literature, music and popular culture to explain a range of human emotions. They include gezellig – the Dutch word that explains the cosy feeling from being inside on a winter’s night surrounded by food and good friends – and basorexia – the sudden urge to kiss someone. She explains how each emotion has its own story and how they influence every area of our lives.

Watt Smith is research fellow at the Queen Mary Centre for the History of the Emotions, and was a 2014 BBC New Generation Thinker. She worked as a theatre director for seven years including as associate director at Arcola Theatre and at the Royal Court.
