Arlie Russell Hochschild (; born January 15, 1940) is an American professor emerita of sociology at the University of California, Berkeley and writer. Hochschild has long focused on the human emotions which underlie moral beliefs, practices, and social life generally. She is the author of nine books including, most recently Strangers in Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right, a finalist for the National Book Award. In The Second Shift, The Managed Heart, The Time Bind and others of her books, she continues the tradition of C. Wright Mills drawing links between private troubles and public issues.Hochschild seeks to make visible the underlying role of emotion and the work of managing emotion, the paid form of which she calls “emotional labor.” For her, “the expression and management of emotion are social processes. What people feel and express depend on societal norms, one’s social category and position, and cultural factors.” Her agenda is one that is committed “to understanding how the personal realm is continually altered by powerful institutions, economic and cultural trends.”
