The aim of this ‘Languages and Emotion’ cluster workshop is to grapple with the different terms, languages, and discourses of medieval and early modern pain and suffering and their related emotions. Five presenters: Han Baltussen (Classics, Adelaide), Naama Cohen-Hanegbi (History, Tel Aviv), Anna Corrias (History, Princeton), Kirk Essary (CHE, UWA), and Sergio Starkstein (Psychiatry, UWA) will introduce and lead discussion of key texts from antiquity through to the nineteenth century.

Interstate participants are most welcome, especially members of the ‘Languages and Emotion’ cluster. While we are unable to fund travel and accommodation, please RSVP to emotions@uwa.edu.au as soon as possible to indicate your interest in attending,  and for information on accommodation options.  Further information will be uploaded on the CHE website soon.
