La suite des aventures d’EMMA aux antipodes !
Après deux conférences, sur Angèle de Foligno à Yarra Theological Union et sur les incorporations émotives à Greccio à l’Université de Melbourne, ce workshop, organisée par l’ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions réunit chercheurs et étudiants de l’émotion autour de la grande question de la manière dont l’émotion participe au “travail” de l’Histoire.
Date: Thursday 13 November, 2014
Venue: University House, Upper East Dining Room, The University of Melbourne
9.30–11.00am Piroska Nagy: Medieval Emotions and Historical Change: the cases of Angela of Foligno and Lukardis of Oberweimar
This lecture will reflect on emotions in medieval texts by considering three major questions. It will address how emotions are related to changes in historiography in recent decades. By exploring several medieval cultural constellations it will argue that emotions, and not only their representation, change through time. It will then use the example of two female mystics who died in 1309, Angela of Foligno and Lukardis of Oberweimar, to show how embodied emotions in the later Middle Ages had a transformative power with respect to the self and community.
