ItemSmiling and teasing as strategies masking anger among French and Australian cultural groups(Maison des Sciences de l'Homme de Montpellier: Montpellier, France., 2007) Mrowa-Hopkins, Colette Marie; Strambi, AntonellaThis paper reports on an ongoing project that is concerned with the interpretation and processing of emotion in communication, particularly anger, within an interactional dynamics perspective (Holtgraves, 1990). In a previous publication (Strambi & Mrowa 2007), we presented an analytical model and some preliminary analyses of ‘processing’ strategies for managing the communication of anger among friends across three cultural groups: Anglo-Australian, French and Italian. In this paper, we are presenting further elaborations on this model, and analyses from a non-verbal perspective of how smiling and teasing function in the construction and negotiation of anger scenarios among French and Anglo-Australian groups.
