The emotions are now an established field of research in the historical humanities, attracting a steady stream of academic interest worldwide. Similarly, the past three decades have seen such a growth in the exploration of emotions in classical antiquity that this field too can be said to have experienced a pronounced ‘affective turn.’
As a response to this sustained interest, the Mohr Siebeck series Emotions in Antiquity offers a forum to bring together academic discussion on the subject and win international attention for outstanding studies on emotions in classical antiquity.
Guided by an editorial team of international experts, the series encompasses the entire field of research on emotions in Graeco-Roman antiquity, including its relationship to the neighbouring cultures of the ancient Mediterranean. It is equally open to case studies on texts, to studies of ancient visual and material culture, and to work on ancient theories of emotions, encompassing also overarching aspects such as reception aesthetics or questions of methodology. Both monographs and collected volumes are welcome.
