Presenter

Claire Walker, The University of Adelaide

This talk will illustrate how a consideration of emotions can provide historians with a new and innovative understanding of historical events. Through documents, images and material objects, scholars are reconsidering how men, women and children lived, understood and expressed their feeling about the people and events of their era.
