Affective and Emotional Economies in Medieval and Early Modern Europe, Paperback / softback Book

Affective and Emotional Economies in Medieval and Early Modern Europe Paperback / softback

Edited by Andreea Marculescu, Charles-Louis Morand Metivier

Part of the Palgrave Studies in the History of Emotions series

Description

This book analyzes how acts of feeling at a discursive, somatic, and rhetorical level were theorized and practiced in multiple medieval and early-modern sources (literary, medical, theological, and archival).

It covers a large chronological and geographical span from eleventh-century France, to fifteenth-century Iberia and England, and ending with seventeenth-century Jesuit meditative literature.

Essays in this book explore how particular emotional norms belonging to different socio-cultural communities (courtly, academic, urban elites) were subverted or re-shaped; engage with the study of emotions as sudden, but impactful, bursts of sensory experience and feelings; and analyze how emotions are filtered and negotiated through the prism of literary texts and the socio-political status of their authors.
