Skin Deep blog for the Histories of Emotion

The Histories of Emotion brings together a group of research associates working in the humanities in Australia, as part of the Australian Research Council’s Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, which is based at the Universities of Western Australia, Melbourne, Adelaide, Queensland, and Sydney.
