The History of Emotions

November 23, 2008

I went to a very interesting workshop on Friday, discussing Roger Smith’s book, Being Human. It was organised by the History of Emotions group set up at Queen Mary University, in conjunction with the Wellcome Centre. They have lots of other seminars planned and I am quite excited about them. I hadn’t really thought of my project in scientific/medical terms before, but talking to people who are working on the history of emotions has opened up some new avenues. Perhaps I’m looking at the history of the emotions of history! This is probably too much of a new departure for my thesis but I’m currently very keen on moving in that direction afterwards…
