Abstract: In this article, I analyse the implications of dramaturgic sociology approach for the study of emotions. In order to do that, I focus on the goffmanian vision of social order, seen as "interactional order". Dramaturgic sociology helps studying emotions in that: 1) it allows approaching emotions as sui generis facts; 2) it sets up a relation between self presentation process and social expression of emotions; 3) it is suitable to the analysis of negative emotions such as embarassment and shame; 4) it allows further analysis of emotions management strategies in interactional contexts.

Keywords: emotions sociology, dramaturgic sociology, interactional order, emotions.
