About the Centre

Emotions shape individual, community and national identities. The Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions uses historical knowledge from Europe, initially from the period 1100–1800, to understand the long history of emotional behaviours. The Centre was established in 2011 with a seven-year grant under the ARC Centres of Excellence program, and continued from 2018–2022 with funding from its node universities.
