A transnational history of emotions
Forschungsbereich Geschichte der Gefühle
SummaryEmotions are not the same for all people at all times. They have a history. In the Research Group for the History of Emotions at the Max Planck Institute for Human Development, researchers come together to investigate the history of Europe and India – not only to compare regions, but also to study what is called the provincialisation of Europe: overcoming the perception of Europe as universal, as the norm from which all other regions represent, to a greater or lesser extent, deviations.
