History teachers often use sources to engage students. This workshop looks at how focusing attention on the emotions available in sources will connect with your students... after all, who knows emotions better than a teenager! Catch up on current history research with discussion from four researchers, focusing on sources revealing Australia’s emotional history from explorers’ sea logs to a modern Subiaco case study. The workshop includes presentations by four researchers, a panel discussion, a small group practical activity, and question time. This will be followed by refreshments and networking. At 6.30pm there is a free public lecture by Winthrop Professor Philippa Maddern, Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions. This workshop is run in conjunction with the Sourcing Emotions in the Medieval and Early Modern World International Conference at UWA, 27-29 June 2013.
