"Fever running in the blood: 
feeling and showing emotions in the heart of the town
(XIVth-XVIth centuries)"

Ghent, 29-30 August 2003


From 29 to 30 August 2003 Ghent University is holding an international colloquium
in the university conference center, "Het Pand", on the topic: "Fever running in
the blood: feeling and showing emotions in the heart of the town (XIVth-XVIth
centuries)".

This colloquium is organised in the context of a vast inquiry about urban society
during the late Middle Ages and the early Modern period. The organizers expect
from the participants a new approach to their material with the aim of examining
especially emotions, feelings, passions which appear in some contexts or follow
some events. The languages used will be French and English. Anyone wishing to give
a paper at this colloquium should send a title and a 500 word abstract before the
1st of August 2002.
