    We invited you to join this reading group, led by Stephanie Trigg (CHE Chief Investigator, The University of Melbourne) and hosted on the international online forum, Loomio. Tirst sign up to Loomio https://www.loomio.org/, then sign into your own account, and follow the link https://www.loomio.org/g/nxE9Bu0r/society-for-the-history-of-emotions-international-reading-group to request to join the History of Emotions reading group (if it seems like you’re being asked to join the group twice, just continue to follow the prompts). Initial joining the group is moderated by a small team, so there may be a slight delay. If you are still struggling to join, please email emotions@uwa.edu.au for more directions. 

There will be a (southern hemisphere) winter break from discussions in June and July, resuming in August 2018. We look forward to seeing your comments on any of the readings to date.
