Approaching Emotion

The conference aims to bring together different methodological approaches for the studying of emotions in the medieval and early modern periods. It is centred on the work of Professor Rosenwein (Loyola, Chicago), whose lecture on the first evening will be an open event. This should attract a lot of interest as she is one of the leading scholars in history of emotions, whose work focuses on emotional language from the early medieval to the early modern periods. Therefore, this presents a great opportunity to bring together PGRs and ECRs working in this burgeoning field to create a network of scholars within and beyond WRoCAH.

This event will consist of an open lecture by Professor Rosenwein on 10 September 2018. The following day (11 September) will be a one-day conference with four panels, each consisting of three speakers. These panels will each be centred around a specific methodological approach, such as translation and linguistic analysis. Lunch will be provided and there will be a conference dinner following the final panel.
