BeschreibungBATTLEFIELD EMOTIONS 1500-1900
interdisciplinary workshop

Friday 18 january 2013, VU University, Boelelaan 1105, Amsterdam

When, where and how did soldiers become emotional beings in art, literature and public opinion?

From the 18th century onwards there is a growing interest in battlefield emotions. This can for example be seen in the reports and memoirs of soldiers, in the shift of focus from heroic facts to individual emotions in art and literature and the appearance of empathy and enthusiasm as important notions in military science. The aim of the workshop is to study how and why this changes did occur. In doing so it will try to chart the changes in expressions of battlefield emotions and shed light on the social and cultural developments that brought these changes about.
