Between East & West: Emotions in Non-Fictional Representations of the Individual
Jun 1, 2018 @ 8:00 am - Jun 2, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
This conference will bring together scholars of various literatures and cultures in the period between 1600-1850 in non-fictional (factual) sources which involve passions and/or emotions. The conference is funded in part by the FACE foundation through its Partner University Fund, as part of a three year long project of cooperation between UCLA and the University of Tours (France), entitled “From Passions To Emotions: Non-Fictional Representations Of The Individual (1680-1850)”. While keeping a slight emphasis on Western “emotions”, the conference seeks to open its investigations to a different cultural sphere.
