Emotions in Conflict: The Second Biennial Conference of the Society for the History of Emotions (SHE), University of Ottawa

8 Nov 2018 4:26 AM | Kristin Bourassa (Administrator)

Dates: 2‒4 October 2019

Venue: University of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Committee: David Dean, Kathryn Prince, Piroska Nagy

Call for Papers Deadline: 1 December 2018

Enquiries/Submission of Proposals: conflict@vectorsofemotion.com

Conflict (whether interpersonal, intercultural, interspecies or individual) can lead to devastating consequences, but it is also an important catalyst for creativity and an indicator of social change. The emotions associated with conflict can be as pleasurable as the relish of dramatic tension or as devastating as a complete physical and mental collapse of the self. 

We invite participants to consider the emotions associated with conflict, to examine how various cultures have understood the nexus of emotions and conflict, and to explore conflicting emotions in any context. Approaches from all disciplines broadly related to the History of Emotions are welcome. Given uOttawa's bilingual mission, participation in French is welcome and encouraged. A version of the call for papers is also circulating en français. The deadline is 1 December 2018 to submit proposals (in English or French) for individual papers, panels, and creative presentations (200–300 words with a short biographical statement) to the conference organisers David Dean, Kathryn Prince and Piroska Nagy at the conference address: conflict@vectorsofemotion.com

The conference will take place at uOttawa, located downtown near Ottawa's many galleries and museums, the Rideau Canal, and other attractions, including a shuttle to see the autumn colours in Gatineau Park.
