Gendered emotions in the early modern world

Further information


This project focuses on the representation of gender and early modern emotions in contemporary museums and exhibitions.

It brings together Jaqueline Van Gent's long-standing interest in the history of emotions which she first developed in her PhD on Swedish witchcraft and which is expanded upon in her  work on the Nassau family and in the study of Moravian missions.

It will be carried out as part of the Australian Research Council's Centre for Excellence in the History of Emotions.
