Reschke, Walle & Dukes (2020) provides experimental support for our 2017 paper on the  emotion and social cognition link.

Dukes, Abrams et al (2021) highlights affectivsim as a new approach and, perhaps, a new era.

Gruber et al (2021) makes the case for affect to be included more explicitly in accounts of social learning.
