Raphaele Garrod

Raphaële Garrod 140Raphaële Garrod researched Jesuit emotions with Professor Yasmin Haskell at The University of Western Australia (UWA) (20122014). She is investigating lexis and theories of emotions as they were spelled out at the French Jesuit collège of La Flèche, where Descartes was educated, before focusing on their enactment or subversion in the pedagogical, and ultimately, political practices of the French Jesuits. Her sources consist of textbooks in rhetoric, psychology, and theology, as well as treatises of meditational practice and of moral edification, school-plays and occasional literature (poetry, orations). This research is providing her with some of the building blocks of her current project, a history of prudence in early modern France which will nuance traditional historiographical accounts of the French Grand Siècle by highlighting the importance of emotions in the very fabric of the not so transparent subject of the Age of Reason.
