Russia Today

November 2014

I discussed how power is negotiated through nonverbal communication and that even when interactions are formal and constrained, some unconscious nonverbal communications leaks genuine emotional responses.  Putin is well known for carefully choosing iconic images to represent aspects of his power and authority, and certain of his brief nonverbal interactions are designed to send similar messages.  How these power plays generalise to female politicians was also discussed.  The interview was broadcast (6 times) on the 16th November.
