Perspectives on Emotions History

'Perspectives on Emotions History' is a new book series jointly sponsored by the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (ACMRS) and the ARC Centre for the History of Emotions (CHE), to be published within ACMRS's 'Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies' series. It publishes the latest insights into Emotions History from a broad range of humanities research fields, extending from the early medieval period to 1800.

Proposals for monographs, essay collections, reference works and editions of texts are encouraged and Interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary projects are welcome, as are theoretical studies. The focus is primarily European, but includes cross-cultural encounters, influences and legacies.
