Congratulations to CML post-doc Aglae Pizzone on her involvement in a research network recently awarded funding by the Leverhulme Trust. This network will explore the complex interactions between ancient and Byzantine emotion, bridging a gap in emotion history. It combines the methodologies of Classics and Byzantine studies, of Medieval Studies and emotion history. It will shed new light on the Byzantine emotional universe and its impact on medieval and early modern culture and illuminate ancient emotions by investigating their reception in Byzantium. The network will not confine itself to texts, but will explore broad phenomena such as visual and material culture, performance, ritual, and the creation of cultural landscapes.
The network includes Edinburgh University (PI D. Cairns; N. Gaul), University of Southern Denmark (A. Pizzone), University of Cyprus (M. Hinterberger), Vienna University (L. Theis), and entails the organization of three workshops and a final conference. Research activities will also lead to the creation of a digital archive.
