Researchers

Our long-term European heritage remains one of our strongest cultural influences, shaping the world we live in today. We work to produce a new, interdisciplinary and comprehensive understanding of the long history of individual and communal emotions in Europe (1100 - 1800) and to apply this knowledge to improve the social, cultural and emotional welfare of modern Australians.
