This module introduces students to new inter-disciplinary scholarship on the ways in which emotions and bodies are socially and culturally constructed across time and space. Students will learn that ideas, practices and experiences about feelings and bodies are fluid and determined by historically, socially, and culturally specific contexts, themselves shaped by politics, religion, science, medicine, and literary and artistic fashions. Students will investigate the ways in which 'being human' is relative through three apparently universal features of life: love, sex, and death. They will analyse and interrogate texts, images, and artefacts to understand the centrality of human emotions and bodies to the functioning of our world.
