Introduction to Moral Economy and Emotions

Introduction to Moral Economy and Emotions

Monika Freier

This seminar offers new PhD candidates an introduction to the theoretical basics of the history of emotions as well as to E.P. Thompson’s notion of a Moral Economy and the ways in which this notion has been taken up and deployed by other scholars. Its aim is to provide PhD candidates with a common background knowledge that can serve as a basis for future work and debate. The seminar is divided up into thematic segments comprising multiple sessions, and each segment is led by a different member of the IMPRS Moral Economies faculty. For more information, see the course syllabus.

Academic Writing Class

Academic Writing Class

Roisin Cronin

The course aimed to establish an atmosphere that is somewhere between a creative writing group and a seminar. Participants should not only begin to see themselves as writers, but start a process that will ultimately turn them into writers. Therefore, one of the key aspects is to get writing from the beginning. The course also involved instruction based-learning, task-based learning and discussion-based learning.
