This course introduces students to the history of emotions and senses. Students explore theories and methods for studying emotions in history, as well as scholarship on emotions or senses in specific historical contexts.
Syllabus Final Project
This final project asks students to conceptualize and design an undergraduate course related to the study of emotions. This “un-essay” assignment gives students the opportunity to analyze emotions in relation to a topic of their own choosing and to engage with their own learning process by reflecting on how syllabi shape the way we learn about history.
