Sourcing Emotions in the Medieval and Early Modern World
27-29 June 2013
The University of Western Australia, Perth, Australia

Full details:

This international conference will bring together scholars interested in exploring how we "source" emotions of the medieval and early modern period, whether by performing, acting, hearing, finding, or reading within the varied disciplines interested in this period.

Abstracts are welcome on such questions as:
Where we look for emotions in the extant sources
How we 'read' across multiple source types to create a composite understanding of the emotions of a particular time period
How we translate source information into practice in the performing arts
Gendered nature of sources and gendered nature of emotions
Sources, emotions and power: what are sources for understanding emotions in cross-cultural encounters? What do we have to take into account when interpreting them?
Material objects as sources for the study of emotions
Does the study of emotions make us to rethink our sources? If so, in what ways?

Proposals will be accepted until 8 March 2013.
