Appel de conférences – « Emerging Scholars Workshop » – 15 avril 2022

Appel de conférences pour « Emerging Scholars Workshop », Osnabrück University, 12-14 octobre 2022

« Our workshop will focus on the issue of communicating emotions: we will discuss how emotions were expressed, transformed into discourse and exploited for other purposes, in the various social and cultural contexts of antiquity, the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age. How did people communicate emotions and how did people communicate about emotions?

The expression of feelings and emotions has varied a lot in the course of history. This variability does not just concern the definition of what is understood by ‘sentiment’, ‘emotion’, passio or related terms, but also, and particularly, the specific codes used to communicate emotions and emotion-led action. We do not intend to discuss the historical prevalence of certain sentiments and emotions or the feelings the communication of these emotions produces in the recipient. What we rather wish to investigate is how emotions are expressed in specific situations (literary, historical, musical, visual etc.) and what the communicative functions are which attend these expressions. »
