Doing Emotions History

University of Illinois Press

This concluding chapter looks back on the insights provided by the previous chapters in order to launch a discussion into what future emotions historians can expect or improve upon. As this volume is hardly a comprehensive coverage of the discipline, the chapter nevertheless points out the ways in which this book suggests examples and directions for the future. Moreover, the chapter reflects on how historical analysis deals both with how emotions respond to discrete developments in other domains and with how emotions help to translate change not only into personal and family life but into wider areas of social behavior. These connections provide abundant spurs to further research. Emotions historians can now find a myriad ways to improve and expand upon their research, from the use of technology to intersecting with other disciplines.

Keywords:   emotions history, emotions historians, future research, historical analysis, social behavior, modernity, technology, interdisciplinarity, neuroscience
