History of emotions conferences 2012

The History of Emotions email list regularly carries calls for papers and announcements of conferences in the field. I thought it would be useful to gather together into a single place a list of links to information about all the forthcoming conferences I’m aware of for the rest of 2012. The list starts with ‘Moving Modernisms’ in Oxford in March and ends with ‘Shame and Shaming’ in Berlin in December. If I have missed out any conferences with a history of emotions theme, then do please email me to let me know, and I’ll update this post.
