Emotions shape individual, community and national identities. The ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions uses historical knowledge from Europe, 1100 – 1800, to understand the long history of emotional behaviours. The Centre was established in 2011 under the ARC Centres of Excellence program.
