Appeal to emotion is a key technique of persuasion, ranked by Aristotle alongside logical reasoning and arguments from character. Although ancient philosophical discussions of it have been much researched, exploration of its practical use has focused largely on explicit appeals to a handful of emotions (anger, hatred, envy, pity) in 5th–4th century BCE Athenian courtroom oratory. This volume expands horizons: from an opening section focusing on so-far underexplored emotions and sub-genres of oratory in Classical Athens, its scope moves outwards generically, geographically, and chronologically through the « Greek East » to Rome.Key thematic links are: the role of emotion in the formation of community identity; persuasive strategies in situations of unequal power; and linguistic formulae and genre-specific emotional persuasion. Other recurring themes include performance (rather than arousal) of emotions, the choice between emotional and rational argumentation, the emotions of gods, and a concern with a secondary « audience »: the reader.

CFP : Communities, Imaginations and Emotions in the Medieval Mediterranean

Source :  Universiteit Gent

Society for the Medieval Mediterranean – Conference 2017

The fifth biennial conference of the Society for the Medieval Mediterranean will take place at Ghent University from Monday 10th July to Wednesday 12th July 2017.

The theme of the conference is “Communities, Imaginations and Emotions in the Medieval Mediterranean”. We welcome papers from all disciplines that study emotions, imaginations and communities in, of and across the Medieval Mediterranean. This theme invites a variety of lines of inquiry, a number of which are suggested below. How were emotions produced, expressed and communicated? To what end were imaginations used and abused? In what ways were communities perceived and understood? What communalities and particularities are there? Which challenges do the literary, historical, archaeological and other sources pose in this respect?

The keynotes will be delivered by Professor Marina Rustow (Princeton) and Professor Nikolas Jaspert (Heidelberg).

Topics of the Conference

Topics of the conference include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Emotional and imagined communities
  • Selfing and othering
  • Identity and alterity, senses of belonging, ties that bond
  • Memory, nostalgia and the imagined or idealized past
  • Mirabilia, wonders and magic
  • Worldviews and other social schemata
  • Mobility across borders
  • Emotional and communal dimensions to identity
  • Honour and shame, social codes and values
  • Emotions bodily felt, orally expressed
  • Reading and sharing emotions
  • Methodological problems when inquiring emotions and imaginations

 

Call for papers and panels

We invite 200-300 word abstracts for individual 20-minute papers relating to the conference theme. Participants are encouraged to submit proposals for panels of 3 papers – in this case, the panel proposer should collate the three abstracts and submit them together, indicating clearly the rationale behind the planned panel. A pdf version of the call for papers and panels is accessible here.

 

First deadline:

Abstracts for individual papers and proposals for panels should be emailed to the conference email address (smm2017@ugent.be) by Monday 31st October 2016. Applicants will be notified regarding the acceptance of their paper or panel by January 2017.

Conference themes

How do emotions relate to the self?  On one possible view, emotions stand outside the self: they reflect biological drives or cultural demands independent of – perhaps even inimical to – the subject’s own interests or values; when we act out of emotion, we are driven to act by psychological forces external to ourselves. But on another view, our emotional dispositions help to constitute who we are; words and deeds that come ‘from the heart’ are judged to have a special kind of worth, arising from their authenticity. In everyday contexts, people seem to think about emotion in both these ways, depending on the situation. But can these two views be reconciled? And if not, which view comes closer to the truth?
The purpose of this conference is to throw light on these questions, capitalising on the progress that has been made in the philosophy of emotion in recent years, as well as drawing on studies in the history of philosophy and on a range of philosophical traditions.

Des émotions immorales, inconfortables et laides ?

The Danish historical journal temp is planning a special issue:

Uncomfortable, immoral, and ugly feelings
In recent decades the discipline of history has witnessed a tremendous increase the interest in emotions. Among other things, scholars have examined how cultures of emotions have emerged and changed. They have also looked at how historical actors have adopted and adapted the emotional repertoires that were socially acceptable in various historical contexts. In this temp issue we wish to explore a new and different strand within this field, that is, the affective moments and experiences that break with prevailing emotional norms. Through a focused attention on emotional disruptions as historical indicators of cultural shifts, we seek to shed light on the negative, morally reprehensible, uncomfortable or pathological feelings – as well as the titillating dangerous feelings.
Focusing on emotional practices deemed ignoble, raw, bad or ugly, essays will examine the historically variable relationship between morality, power, and affective practices. What role has feelings such as greed, envy, thirst for revenge, shame, apathy, or misplaced desire played in different contexts? How have historical actors handled unpleasant emotions? In what ways have negative feelings been used as a means of social regulation or contestation? When are feelings deemed inappropriate and how does that affect the social contexts within which they are practiced? How do “good” emotions turn “bad”?

We welcome contributions in English or Danish exploring any historical period and context.
