8-9 June 2020: Emotions, History and Place conference

The Emotions, History and Place conference 2020 at Queen Mary University London, invites a range of reflections on the relationship between emotions and place within a historical context. To what extent have emotional experiences in the past transformed sites into places of significant meaning? To what extent have different spaces shaped the emotional experiences of historical actors residing within them? How far do our own emotional responses, as well as those of stakeholders, visitors, and the public, influence our approaches towards sites of history and heritage?
