Abstract

Catrien Santing, ‘Don’t forget feelings’; the importance of sensitivity in political history
Since the history of mentality in the 1970s and 1980s, Dutch historians have hardly paid any attention at all to the study of emotions in the past. On the rare occasions that this didtake place, the argument was usually related to personal relations in the private sphere. Departing from recent American, English and German ‘emotion-studies’, this article proposes to systematically take the public expression, use and meaning of feelings into consideration, thereby arriving at a broader, more rounded view of political history.
 
This article is part of the forum 'Debat over emoties'.
