L’embarras en communication

Abstract : Relating with others, which is often complicated and at times unpleasant, can now be avoided through the use of digital exchange interfaces such as social networking platforms. These new forms of less-constraining sociability set aside the question of bodies that scrutinize, have an impact on, and become synchronized with one another. This article explores the connections between communication and feelings of displeasure by showing the extent to which embarrassment is a constitutive aspect of human communication. Simultaneously a social emotion and a sensory experience, embarrassment is conceptualized through a necessarily interdisciplinary approach, which involves an ethnography of adolescents, who are especially affected by such disruptions of communication.
