Offers a comparative introduction to history of emotions and self-identifications. Examines ways in which emotional responses are historically informed. Explores ways that historical contexts set in relief particular self-understandings and how identifying with an activity (a sport, a hobby), an organization (a fraternity, a church, a school), or characteristic (race, sexual orientation, religion) may change in different contexts and for individuals over time. Particularly useful for students planning to concentrate in Emotions and the Psychology of the Self as History majors. One course.
