This collection asks new questions about the household, examining the kinds of positive and negative emotional scope available to household members drawn together by shared economic, social and biological needs rather than by blood ties. Through a range of case studies across Western Europe, the collection considers varied methodological approaches and sources to explore emotional realms between household members, and grapples with the challenges of historicizing both the household and emotions.
SUSAN BROOMHALL teaches early modern history at The University of Western Australia.
