Prof. Trigg participates in an interdisciplinary collaboration across major Australian universities and with partners in England and Europe to study the history of emotions. Her talk will focus on the emotional history of fire, using the Great Fire of London in the 1660s as a starting point. Exploring visual and written representations of that event, Prof. Trigg will consider the roles of fear, sorrow and penitence, as well as the roles of significant objects from that event. What are the different forms of evidence available for the history of emotions and how might each be used in that study?
