Born of the emotional and sensory 'turns', Elements in Histories of Emotions and the Senses move one of the fastest-growing interdisciplinary fields forward. They probe happiness and fear, smell and sound - and they ask if these can be neatly separated by discrete words, or if they are cross-cultural. They concern and problematize such topics as affect theory, the dichotomy of discourse vs. experience, intersensoriality, multisensory processing, embodiment, distributed cognition, epigenetics, human-animal relations and affective neuroscience. They touch on issues of pressing socio-political and sociomedical relevance, such as 'felt facts', racism and hate speech, mental health, emotional labour and artificial intelligence. Chronologically and regionally broad, ranging from deep to transnational and global history, the series speaks to scholars from the humanities, social sciences and life sciences, including anthropology, art history, (cognitive) neuroscience, cultural studies, (behavioural) economics, gender studies, history, literary studies, media studies, philosophy, political science, psychology, queer theory, rhetoric, sociology, theology.
