Description

Recent work in affect theory and in the history of the emotions reveals surprising ways in which the expression, representation, and judgment of feeling intersects with theology and devotional practice, materiality and corporeality, aesthetics, politics, and medical knowledge. Medieval Iberia’s complex political and confessional landscape offers a rich field for inquiry into the ways in which the emotions were instrumental in assertions of power, of spiritual and moral truth, of membership or disqualification from community. This panel seeks papers exploring the emotions and affects of medieval Iberia from any perspective: ethnicity, political discourses, religion, medicine, literary representations, visual cultures, etc. Robin Bower
