    Facing Up to the History of Emotions
    Downes, S ; Trigg, S (Palgrave Macmillan (part of Springer Nature), 2017-02-01)
    This special issue of postmedieval brings together several strands of medieval and medievalist work in the history of emotions, with a special focus on literary, historical and cinema studies. It asks how we may best ‘face up’ to work that has been done already in these fields, and speculates about work that might yet be done, especially by medievalists working across medieval and postmedieval sources. In the idiom, ‘facing up,’ we evoke the impulse to assess and realise the place of medieval studies in the burgeoning field of emotions research. We also conjure our conceptual focus -- the expressive human face -- as a complex and intriguing source for reading emotions in the past. Whether the face is taken as textual or visual, literal or conceptual, represented or embodied, it is, like the emotions, critical in Western understandings of humanity itself.

    "A good hater”: Writing about the Emotions with George Eliot and A. S. Byatt
    Trigg, S (Brill on behalf of Society for the History of Emotions, 2017-03)
    This essay takes as its starting point a reflection of a character in A.S. Byatt’s Still Life: ‘George Eliot, Stephanie thought, was a good hater.’ This comment refers to Eliot’s satirical analysis of middle-class sensibilities and emotional affectations in The Mill on the Floss. This essay explores the emotional resonances of this phrase that links these two very different novels, written in different centuries and structured around very different thematic concerns. Nevertheless, this connection between them, and the way a small modern community of readers responded to this connection on social media helps us theorise the distinctive contribution literary studies can make to the history of emotions. Literary texts, and perhaps especially the novel, offer complex multiple perspectives on the performance of emotions in social contexts. In such texts, passionate emotions extremes and everyday emotions are treated with equal seriousness and subtlety, while the diachronic histories of literary reception and response offer rich narratives and material for the study of emotional history.
