This day of talks and readings will explore the ways in which preachers have appealed to the emotions of their listeners across the ages. After a reading of a sermon by the seventeenth-century preacher and poet John Donne, the day will include a lecture on sermons and emotions by Rev. Dr Erica Longfellow (New College, Oxford), and a roundtable discussion focusing on religious language and the emotions, past and present. The lecture and roundtable will engage both with Donne’s sermon and the Book of Common Prayer.

Keynote speaker

Rev. Dr Erica Longfellow (Chaplain and Dean of Divinity, New College, Oxford)

Roundtable speakers

Presented by the UQ node of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions and St John's Cathedral, Brisbane.
