Compassion and emotions in the Early Modern period (Amsterdam, 6 november 2015)

On Friday the 6th of november 2015, the Stichting Vrouwengeschiedenis van de Vroegmoderne Tijd hosts a discussion session on the theme of Emotions in the Early Modern Period.

The history of emotions has been a focus of activity within the study of early modern cultural history. The Free University in Amsterdam currently hosts an exhibition on compassion in the early modern era. The programme of the session consists of a tour throuth the exhibition by Kristine Steenbergh, followed by two lectures by ACCESS-members Inger Leemans and Erika Kuijpers on their research into the topic.

The programme can be downloaded here. Participation is free, but registration with Lieke van Deinsen (l.vandeinsen@let.ru.nl) would be very much appreciated.

The programme and meeting are both in Dutch.
