This one-day conference will provide an opportunity for postgraduates and early career researchers in particular to present their work, and to meet and share ideas.
The theme of the conference is broad. It will not be confined to any particular time period or location and will go beyond simply ‘historical perspectives’ on the theme, allowing researchers to see the breadth of what can be done under the umbrella of gender and emotion.
We hope that the conference will provide fruitful grounds for future collaborations and for the furthering of ideas in this burgeoning area of historical research. In particular, our aim is to give PhD students and those who are early in their career a comfortable environment in which to share and promote their research alongside established academics, and to develop and build connections with those working on similar themes.
The volume that will hopefully come out of the event, meanwhile, will have a positive impact on the discipline more broadly, adding to the literature on this interesting but underdeveloped topic.
