CFP: History of Emotions

Book: History of Emotions series
Submission deadline for proposals: unknown

Description: »Book manuscripts wanted for a new series on the history of the emotions: Love, anger, sadness, shame. All have a history, and all have shaped history. The University of Illinois Press introduces a new series that explores the vital field of the history of emotions – a field that offers innovative and often startling perspectives on the past. Discarding outdated notions of people in past societies as purely rational actors, scholars in the series will examine how history felt to those who lived it and how private feelings have shaped public realities. They will present cutting edge research on the way emotions, and the social rules that govern them, have shaped domestic relationships, gender roles, and work dynamics. The series will publish books that explore the diverse ways individuals have experienced and expressed particular emotions as well as scholarship that examines the connections between emotions and political, religious, economic, and family life. It seeks studies of emotional experience, emotional norms, emotional communities, and the connections between the emotions and other aspects of social and personal behavior. The History of Emotions series encourages contributions from, and concerning, all major regions of the world, and a wide variety of time periods.«
