St Mary's University, Twickenham
Philosophers, historians, theologians, and literary scholars have identified love in myriad ways: its conception as a cultural practice, something which is rooted in a feeling of being at home, a form of madness, a form of ‘self-disclosure’ which is exemplified in the divine, a tool of power and politics, and something which might be produced from a tension between feelings and duty.
These discussions have been further developed by recent research which connects emotions and material culture; scholars have suggested how material objects might serve as the locus for emotions, effecting change for people’s emotions, or contributing to memories and remembrance.
In this conference, we will enjoy a range of papers on love and material culture – the programme will be finalised on Monday 23rd January. We are delighted to share that the keynote will be delivered by Dr Sally Holloway!
