This platform aims at giving concrete examples of the methods, perspectives and sources by which historical emotions can be explored. It not only aims at showing that emotions have a history, but also at highlighting concrete examples of how the history of emotions can be written.
Analytical and methodological aspects of the history of emotions will therefore be illustrated in short contributions through the use of specific sources. Every article has a source as its starting point, ranging from ego-documents, advice or fictional literature, different media (photography, films, internet blogs) to various archival documents. New articles will be added on a quarterly basis. Hopefully, the platform will not only become a stimulus for debates but also a comprehensive archive for the expanding field. With this platform we would like to provide impulses from the history of emotions for other historians, but also for researchers from other disciplines. We aim at stimulating interdisciplinary communication and providing a platform for further networking.
