Experience history in action, how human emotions have changed over the centuries, and the impact it has had on Australia today. Read the latest news from the History of Emotions:

27 February 2015

From the Director

As CHE welcomes new Postdoctoral Research Fellows to our nodes, there has been good news of some who completed their time with us last year. Spencer Young, formerly at UWA, is taking up a six-month research fellowship at Notre Dame, Indiana. Ross Knecht, until recently at Queensland, has obtained an Assistant Professorship in English at Emory University, Georgia.  Ross writes that "the experience in the Centre made all the difference on the job search ". Katrina O'Loughlin (UWA) follows Katie Barclay's (Adelaide) earlier success as a CHE Postdoctoral Fellow in winning an ARC DECRA. Katrina's project, to start later in 2015, is concerned with literary friendship between women in the eighteenth century. CHE has also added to its list of Partner Investigators. In their new capacity as PIs, we warmly welcome Louis Charland (Western Ontario), Andrea Noble (Durham), Piroska Nagy (Québec à Montréal) and François Soyer (Southampton). It's heartening to see our international collaborations developing strength as they go, building on the success of previous relationships.
Since late last year, the UWA node has been busy preparing the 2014 Annual Report on the Centre. One of its most striking features is a marked spike in publications, as the research fruits of our earlier years have ripened into print. We have had to revise our publication Key Performance Indicators for the future considerably upward. The list includes monographs, edited collections, special journal editions, chapters and articles from the complete range of CHE's research membership, from Chief Investigators to Postgraduates. It makes for very impressive reading.
Equally impressive is the long list of research-based performance events, and the education and outreach activities that continually translate our research findings to the general public. A successful application to a European-based grant scheme wrote of CHE that "in its strategy for dissemination of research results through public performance, exhibitions and coherent policy … the ARC Centre is far ahead of any European initiative, either specific to the history of the emotions or generally applicable to the humanities across the board". Plans for the coming years should see us live up to that reputation.
It seems to become clearer by the month that the history of emotions is vitally connected to the daily lives of contemporary Australians, and that CHE's work holds a public 'interest' in both main senses of the word. On a recent trip to Melbourne, I read a post by 'Aussie' of Tynong in the 'Text Talk' section of the Herald Sun, assuring another correspondent: "I also have feelings of revulsion, fear and dread when I see a woman in a hijab". The history of fear is all around us at present, yet although 'Aussie's' feelings of dread are no doubt physically real, they don't have to remain his or her last word on the subject. Wider information, increased cultural understanding, leading to greater confidence in a shared humanity with the woman in the hijab – all these could help 'Aussie' 'feel' differently, and they are all aspects of the emotions research that CHE is committed to sharing with fellow Australians.


Andrew Lynch
Director | Chief Investigator | The University of Western Australia

Welcome New Director - Professor Andrew Lynch

Professor Andrew Lynch (UWA) was appointed as the Centre’s new Director, in succession to his former colleague, the late Professor Philippa Maddern.  Andrew has been involved in the planning and work of the Centre since its earliest days. In 2014 he became a Chief Investigator and Deputy Director in the Centre, and after Professor Maddern’s death on 16 June, its Acting Director. His appointment as Director, which follows an extended international search by The University of Western Australia (UWA), is a strong endorsement of the style of leadership he has displayed over recent years and throughout the last few difficult months.  Coming as it does in the wake of a highly commendatory mid-term report by the Australian Research Council on the Centre’s initial achievements under Philippa Maddern’s inspirational directorship, the appointment ensures continuing stability within the Centre, and eases the way for further imaginative growth and development of its programs under its new Director up to, and beyond, its current funding cycle which is due to end in 2017.

A graduate of Melbourne and Oxford Universities,  Andrew Lynch was appointed to a Lectureship in English at UWA in 1980.  He has served as Chair of the Discipline of English, Chair also of the University’s program of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (MEMS), Associate Dean (Research) in Arts, and is a Professor in English and Cultural Studies.  Out of MEMS emerged in 2008 UWA’s Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies – housing the long-running Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group.  

Andrew served for eight years as Editor of the prestigious refereed journal of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Medieval and Early Modern Studies, Parergon. He was a proponent of the ARC Network for Early European Research (NEER: 2004-09), and served as the Network’s initial Director. NEER received a grant of $1.6 million from the Australian Research Council – a record at that time for funding in the humanities in Australia. The major success of this Network was a decisive factor in UWA’s subsequent bid for funding for the establishment of the even more ambitious venture, the Centre for the History of the Emotions.  NEER had clearly demonstrated the range and strength of Medieval and Early Modern expertise across the disciplines at UWA. It had also proved the University’s capacity for establishing linkages with like-minded institutions across the academic world.

Andrew Lynch is best known academically for his work as an Arthurian scholar.  He is currently Vice-President of the International Arthurian Society, and will become the Society’s President in 2017.  His first book was Malory’s Book of Arms: The Narrative of Combat in Le Morte Darthur (1997), and questions of war and peace, in and beyond the medieval world, have remained a dominant interest.  He has written extensively also on medievalism, the reception and understanding of the medieval world in later historical periods.  But the study of the emotions, which lies at the heart of CHE’s work, has been throughout his career an absorbing and abiding interest. He has now either published, or contracted to publish, five books relevant to the history of the emotions; and is currently co-editing with Susan Broomhall Volume 3 (Early Modern) of the six-volume Bloomsbury Cultural History of the Emotions.  He is a highly regarded teacher and supervisor, and much admired public speaker.

Andrew Lynch’s appointment as Director of the Centre for the History of the Emotions will be widely celebrated and applauded throughout the extensive network of institutions with which the Centre is now affiliated. We congratulate him warmly, and wish him every success in this new position.    

                                                                                                                                               Ian Donaldson
                                                                                                                                               Advisory Board

Stephanie Trigg’s research on Victorian Bluestone: An Affective Cultural History

In 2015 Chief Investigator (CI) Stephanie Trigg has dedicated her Humanities Researcher blog to keeping a daily record of her research on and encounters with bluestone, from bridges, churches, monuments, schools and prisons, to debates about heritage culture, and the emotional language used to describe this stone and its distinctive use in Victoria and Melbourne. With research assistant Helen Hickey, she is building a digital archive of the way Victorians and Melbournians have worked with bluestone, in preparation for an illustrated book to be written over the course of this year. 

The Bluestone project examines the cultural and affective history of Victorian bluestone, which seems to elicit very passionate and emotional responses. Bluestone was often quarried by convict labour, and it has been suggested that Ned Kelly, the Victorian bushranger, might have laboured in the bluestone quarries in Williamstown. Bluestone sites (cemeteries, morgues, gaols) are often said to be haunted: a major feature of contemporary heritage tourism.  Bluestone was also sent back to England as ballast in ships that had brought convicts, settlers and supplies to Australia. The stone was used in buildings around the port areas of London, so bluestone also has a global history. More recently, bluestone was used to create a Cretan labyrinth near the Merri Creek in 2002: a new age meditative practice using local stone to express an ancient tradition. This labyrinth is cared for by members of the local community. 

The volcanic basalt plains of Western Victoria are the third largest in the world, and date from 4.5 million years ago. They flowed from the west and south-west of the state more or less to the point where the Merri Creek meets the Yarra River in Melbourne. Bluestone has become synonymous with cultural heritage in Melbourne and Victoria, but what are the cultural and emotive associations of its use in architectural contexts, in rural, domestic, and urban spaces? And how has it become such a strong symbol of heritage culture? 

Bluestone is hard, and difficult to carve, but immensely strong for building and foundations. It was used by Indigenous people to make stone eel races at Lake Condah, and by English settlers to make dry stone walls that were reminiscent of home but that are now distinctive of the south-west of Victoria. Bluestone is used for churches, schools and civic buildings such as the National Gallery of Victoria. Pentridge Prison in Coburg was built near the bluestone quarries along the Merri Creek so the prisoners could dig out the materials to build the walls for their own gothic style prison. It is also a contested feature of urban architecture: many local councils want to concrete over the kilometres of bluestone laneways that are expensive to maintain, but are a characteristic feature of Melbourne and its inner suburbs. 

Readers are welcome to send photographs, images and stories to Stephanie at sjtrigg@unimelb.edu.au or via twitter @stephanietrigg #bluestone

Emotion and Reason at the MLA
by CHE Associate Investigator Jennifer Clement  

I was in Vancouver to attend the recent Modern Language Association  (MLA) convention held in January, where I was lucky enough to pick up a two-volume paperback copy of Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion in Vancouver.

Turning to the first page I found this sentence:
“In particular, the miserable ruin into which the revolt of the first man has plunged us, compels us to turn our eyes upwards; not only that while hungry and famishing we may thence ask what we want, but being aroused by fear may learn humility.”

That’s a quintessentially Calvinist way of thinking. For Calvin, humans are indeed worthless and miserable, but through fear they can move closer to God and recognize their need for grace. Calvin gives us a very dynamic understanding of the passions, in fact, because his Christian is always moving between fear and love, misery and hope, pride and repentance. So although the word ‘emotion’ doesn’t come into general use until the end of the seventeenth century, there’s a sense in which it’s important for understanding early modern Calvinism, which is very much about the movement – the motions – of passions or affections (the two words Calvin himself, and his contemporaries, would have used).

At the MLA itself, a couple of days later, I attended one of the best panels there, on Shakespeare and religion. The best paper in the panel was Brian Cummings’ ‘Tracing the persistence of secularist assumptions in early modern literary studies’.  But most relevant to my aims here, he noted that, in modern scholarship, there is often a tendency to avoid thinking of Calvinism as a passionate faith, or Calvin as a writer who engages the emotions. And yet, Cummings said with truth, ‘you can’t read more than a few lines of Calvin without running into the passions’.

My co-panelist Daniel Derrin focused on the role of humour in this process, a dicey topic because as I’ve written above, most Protestants tend to focus on the soul’s need for fear, sadness, and repentance. Collapsing the distinction between the humorous and the serious, Daniel argued that in fact humour in sermons could be very useful and, indeed, crucial for serious attempts at rhetorical persuasion. My other co-panelist, Emily King, took a more affect-theory inflected approach, arguing that affect contagion – a concept taken from current work in neuroscience – can help us understand what John Donne achieves in his famous sermon ‘Death’s Duel’. The gruesome images of corruption Donne includes in this sermon, Emily suggested, are part of an attempt to make his congregation feel fear and anguish, and to demonstrate these emotions through their tears.

My own paper focused very tightly on a conventional term repeatedly used by most clergymen in the seventeenth century as an address to the congregation, ‘beloved’, and asked what that term could tell us about the preacher’s own role in relation to his congregation. I argued that, by studying the uses of this term and its variations – ‘my beloved’, ‘dearly beloved’, and the like – we can recognize how much love, in early modern sermons, is most usefully understood as a kind of institutional emotion, rather than a personal one; and also that these sermons depict feeling in general as something that can be shaped and directed, and not simply as a force to which humans are helplessly subject. Put differently, sermons often accentuate a sense of agency in relation to emotion.

All of these topics would bear much further discussion; sadly there’s not room for it all, but in due course all our papers will probably see print. My point here is that all of us were interested in thinking about rhetoric as a technique for drawing emotion and reason together, and thinking about the possibilities and problems inherent in that technique. The seventeenth century church brings emotion and reason together through the sermon, in a way that – in spite of obvious differences – seems to me analogous to academic events like the MLA, because the MLA convention itself is an emotional space, an emotional event, as much as it is an intellectual one. 

Jennifer is currently researching ‘Passions and Preaching – the Early Modern English Sermon 1603-1660’.  Her work examines how emotions were used in early modern sermons to sway audiences towards religious, moral and political ends.

Human Sharing Experience

As part of the International Partner Investigators scheme, which aims at fostering international collaboration between researchers studying the history of emotions, CHE brought renowned scholar of medieval history, Piroska Nagy, from the Université du Québec à Montréal to Australia in October 2014.    

Piroska is now a Partner Investigator and will continue to work with the Centre until 2017.

The majority of her visit was spent in Melbourne, where she worked with Chief Investigator Charles Zika and Associate Investigator Constant Mews. Piroska also spent time working with researchers at Centre nodes in Perth and Sydney. During her month-long stay, Piroska gave seven presentations, each of which touched on different aspects of her current research that examines the relation between collective religious emotions in the medieval West and historical change. A highlight of her visit was a public lecture at The University of Western Australia on 27 October, in which she used a famous case from medieval religious history – that of Saint Francis of Assisi, who orchestrated the first Christmas nativity scene in 1223 – to explore the hypothesis that shared emotional events can induce the formation of an emotional or affective community. 

Reflecting on her visit, Piroska noted how stimulating and rewarding it was to discuss her projects with CHE researchers and students, adding that such interactions were hugely beneficial in helping her to enlarge the scope of her projects, and to sharpen her view of certain questions. She remarked too, that her unique European approach to the history of emotions, which is strongly marked both by French historiography and by historical anthropology, seemed to be appreciated by CHE audiences, as it brought a different and perhaps unanticipated perspective to discussions.

A number of important collaborations have arisen from Piroska’s time at the Centre, with CHE researchers such as Sue Broomhall, Andrew Lynch, and Penelope Woods all keen to work with Piroska on current and future projects. 

“It was”, Piroska observed, “a very pleasant and uplifting experience of human sharing”.

Recent publication: Earls Colne’s Early Modern Landscapes
by Dolly MacKinnon
In 2014, Honorary CHE Associate Investigator (AI) Dolly Mackinnon released her book Earls Colne’s Early Modern Landscapes which investigates the social, political and cultural world of early modern England as represented by the parish of Earls Colne.  

As a cultural historian, heterotopic landscapes and soundscapes have been a feature of her work and Dolly explains how being an AI at CHE assisted with shaping her book.

“As an AI it was a great intellectual space for me, at a crucial time when my book’s structure and text were being finalised. CHE has also helped me shape my new research trajectories that analyse early modern battlefields, and also the language of medieval and early modern bell ringing.    

“Landscapes become emotional spaces as a result of the people that populate them, and yet history has a tendency to depopulate that landscape, turn off the sound, and leave the emotion out. We need to find new ways to hear and write about the complexity of the past”, she said.

Earls Colne is one of the most studied parishes in England and while much is known about the village and its inhabitants, little has been done on the social relationships that bound the community together within its mental and physical landscape.  

Dolly’s book provides a fresh approach to the study of the landscape of a seventeenth-century village by focussing on the relationships between political power and cultural artefacts. It examines how private, public and communal spaces within society were gendered and governed, and how this was recorded and perpetuated in the records, names and monuments of the parish and surrounding landscape. Yet whilst the ‘elites’ tried to represent a select social landscape through their control of the local records and documents, these attempts were always counterbalanced by the less powerful members of the community who occupied and contested these spaces.   

In the introduction Dolly wrote, “This is not a book that continues in the tradition of land-family bond, individualism, or the discipline-specific studies of cartography, geography, social, economic, thematic, or comparative history. I have chosen to do something different, which moves the research trajectory into new and different areas for amateurs, undergraduates, postgraduates and academics who want to write about this or any other of the roughly 9,000 parishes in England in different ways.”

Valuable Strategising in Sydney

CHE Education and Outreach Officers work to allow school children, the general public, and researchers outside the humanities to engage with the History of Emotions. 

Last year EO Officers brought long-term projects to fruition, furthered important strategic partnerships, and developed exciting new opportunities. The year also saw a shift in the emphasis of the Education and Outreach Program, with EO Officers becoming increasingly focused on how to ensure CHE’s research has a lasting impact. One of the key challenges for EO Officers is to develop a portfolio of workshops and events that are accessible to a broad range of the general public. To assist in addressing this challenge, the EO team met face-to-face in Sydney, to crystalise new  strategies for 2015.

UWA node EO Officer Melissa Kirkham explained that along with individual projects, the team scoped the next steps for two national projects – a historical objects emotions-based online game and a series of events on objects of love. 

The EO team also visited Warner’s Bay High School, in the greater Newcastle area, to deliver eight workshops to 250 Year 10 students. As part of the students’ 2015 curriculum, they would soon start studies on World War II.  

“During our visit we discussed the long history of anti-Semitism, which helped to put their studies of the Holocaust into a broader historical and emotional context. The heavy content of the workshop was lightened with the opportunity for students to use props that demonstrated the passing of time and provided an interactive component to the sessions.  

“This was the first time the EO team presented together as a whole and it proved a valuable learning and bonding experience.  The meeting also served as a bittersweet farewell with many team members moving on to further studies, bringing with it significant changes to the 2015 EO team.”   

The 2014 CHE EO team, consisted of: Gabe Watts (Sydney), Penny Boys (UQ), Lucy Burnett (Melbourne), Penelope Lee (Melbourne), Carly Osborn (Adelaide), and Melissa Kirkham (UWA), led by the Centre Deputy Director Jane Davidson.

Preparing New Generation CHE Researchers

One of CHE’s core research commitments is to provide high-quality training environments for the next generation of researchers. A vital part of our brief is to attract top students undertaking PhD, Masters and Honours degrees; to have them share in the benefits of a long-term, dedicated national and international research enterprise; and to give the Centre and the Australian community the benefit of their work, now and in the future.

As part of that commitment, the Melbourne node of CHE hosted a national Postgraduate and Honours Workshop on 4-5 December 2014. Thirty-three students from a range of Australian universities were selected to attend. Their research interests varied widely, reflecting CHE’s multi-disciplinary nature. There were students from history, literature, classics, art, performance, creative writing, cinema, media studies, music, religion, philosophy, and psychology. Their research time periods ranged from the medieval to the contemporary, and across the spectrum of knowledge, theory, and creative activity, but the students all shared a common interest in human emotions.

The event began with welcoming addresses from Chief Investigator (CI) Stephanie Trigg in Melbourne, and from (the then Acting Director) Andrew Lynch, speaking live by videolink from UWA. There were presentations outlining the four research Programs and five nodes of CHE, and reflections from current postdoctoral and postgraduate members. A highlight of the workshop was a panel discussion on recent developments in emotions history, led by Senior Research Fellows Grace Moore and Merridee Bailey, CI Charles Zika and PhD candidate Bronwyn Reddan. The workshop concluded with small group discussions about potential research topics.

Students’ responses indicated that they found the workshop "welcoming", "inspiring"and "motivating". They appreciated the opportunity to hear humanities academics talking about their cross-disciplinary collaborations. Several of the students have already expressed interest in joining CHE as honours students or doctoral candidates.  Given the success of this workshop, a further workshop is planned for 2015.

Welcome new staff 

Lisa Beaven is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the ‘Change’ Program working with Chief Investigator  Charles Zika. Her doctoral research involved reconstructing the collecting and art patronage of Cardinal Camillo Massimo (1620-1677) in seventeenth-century Rome (2001, The University of Melbourne). 

Lisa’s current research interests are still focused on the area of patronage and art collecting in seventeenth-century Rome, on the architecture and urbanism of the city, and on the nature of visual culture and the Catholic church in early modern Europe. Other research interests include digital mapping, travel writing, relics and the relationship between Catholicism and antiquarianism in the seventeenth century.

Stephanie Downes has started a new Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at The University of Melbourne within the School of Culture and Communication, working with Professor Stephanie Trigg.  Her new project title is  ‘Textual Face in Medieval and Early Renaissance Literary Culture: A Pre-History of the Emoticon’.  The project will examine representations of the face as affective text in pre-modern English manuscript and print.
Stephanie is also completing a monograph on the reception of writing by Christine de Pizan in England, from the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century. Her research for the centre builds on this earlier work, focusing in particular on emotional vocabularies in literary texts circulating in England and France – such as those by Christine de Pizan, Charles d’Orleans, and other continental authors – during the late medieval and early modern period.

At The University of Adelaide, David Lederer (National University of Ireland, Maynooth) has started a one-year Marie Curie Outgoing International Research Fellowship, with the project ‘Emotional Welfare: From Brotherly Love to Fraternity’.

He will investigate the missionary activities of Lutheran missionaries in the Barossa Valley, as well as throughout Australia and PNG. Previously, he worked as a Russian linguist for the intelligence services before receiving an undergraduate degree from the University of Maryland European Division, an MA from Michigan State University for his thesis on crime and punishment during the German Peasants' War and, finally, a PhD from New York University in 1995 for his dissertation on spiritual physic in seventeenth-century Bavaria.

Partnership Brings Two Special Events to UWA

CHE is committed to establishing partnerships with a range of arts industry institutions and participating campuses. Our list of collaborative projects is growing and the outcome is that we offer enriched programs that we can share with wide audiences.

The Perth International Arts Festival, The School of Music at UWA and CHE have worked together to bring world renowned musical director William Christie and Les Arts Florissants to our community.

After more than a decade, Christie returns to Australia and also brings with him a selection of the world’s most talented solo singers in Les Jardin des Voix (The Garden of Voices).

In this special event Christie will present a lecture-recital,
‘The Rhetoric of Passion’, focusing on emotions conceived by Italian composers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. 

As part of CHE’s Education and Outreach program, CHE Performance Program Leader Jane Davidson has organised a free study day,
‘The Passionate Arts in the Early Modern World’ for the general public. 

The day includes lectures, workshops and activities in early modern power politics, music, dance, the art of rhetoric and visual and material culture.  

CHE has invited guests speakers Susan Broomhall (UWA) on the ‘House of Medici’, David Irving (ANU) on ‘The Sun King Louis XIV’ and Alan Maddox (Uni Syd) on ‘Rhetoric in Early Modern Italy’.
