This set of lesson plans has been developed by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions at The University of Adelaide node, based on the latest world-class research in Humanities (History, Art History and English) by the Centre's researchers all over Australia.

An additional resource on 'The Black Death' has been developed by the Education and Outreach Officer at The University of Western Australia node.
