Item description for Emotions in the Heart of the City 14th-16th Century (Studies in European Urban History (1100-1800)) (Studies in European Urban History (1100-1800)) by Elodie Lecuppre-Desjardin, Anne-laure Van Bruaene & Marc Boone...

Whoever is curious about emotions and their expression in the Old Regime has to discover Johan Huizinga's works. From his point of view, even if it is a real challenge to comprehend the world of the mind and of the sentimental life, historians of medieval and early modern societies cannot help themselves from examining character studies to reconcile daily life and historicity. Anglo-Saxon studies have proved since the beginning of the seventies that we can give historical meaning to fierce emotions like anger and fear, to mental suffering characterized by tears and pain, or even to the sudden feeling of aesthetic pleasure, mystical ecstasy and delight all those emotions which put the breath of life into anonymous people crowded into our historical studies. Outside the debates of psycho-history, our study views the topic of emotions from the angle of social construction and civilization's process.

The town reveals itself as an ideal context within which to articulate values, mentalities, customs and aesthetics. From the marketplace to the court of justice, from the procession route to the scaffold, from the theatre stage to the scene of riots, the town concentrates in its heart a public space where both delicate and strong emotions are repeatedly enacted. The purpose of this book is to develop different approaches - according to sphere, events, social categories, social relations, gender, etc. - and thus to suggest a more precise analysis of emotion as a means of communication inside the town. Three urban social "spheres" where divergent emotions were publicly expressed, manipulated, discussed and represented are put into focus : that of the urban revolt, that of the urban administration of justice and that of the staging of urban theatre and poetry.

This book includes contributions from Peter Arnade, Marc Boone, Stijn Bussels, Vincent Challet, Dirk Coigneau, Elisabeth Crouzet-Pavan, Jeroen Deploige, Jan Dumolyn, Jelle Haemers, Eve-Marie Halba, Elodie Lecuppre-Desjardin, Lauro Martines, Mariann Naessens, Walter Prevenier, Bart Ramakers, Laurent Smagghe, Anne-Laure Van Bruaene, Jacqueline Van Leeuwen and Valerie Wilhite.
