Across six volumes, A Cultural History of the Emotions explores how emotions have changed over the course of human history, but also how emotions have themselves created and changed history. Emotions underpin our everyday lives and shape our mental, physical and social well-being. This collection shows how emotions can offer a unique insight into the historical thought and function of different societies.
Each volume in the series encompasses interdisciplinary work on the emotions, covering the medical, scientific, religious and intellectual history, how they have been performed and represented and how they were enacted in social practices on both a personal and public level.
