History of Emotional Experiences beyond the History of Emotions Framework

A new piece in History of Psychology on the history of emotions may interest AHP readers: “Emotional experiences,” by Javier Moscoso. Abstract:

This article pleads for a history of emotional experiences that allows for the understanding of complex emotional phenomena in the past that are not easily accommodated within the history of emotions framework. Following the avenues opened by the anthropology of experience, the article considers different ways in which the history of emotional experiences should allow transhistorical and cross-cultural comparisons.
