About this event:

The North American Chapter on the History of Emotion will be holding its second colloquium on January 31st, 2023: “Examining Internationalisms through the Histories of Experiences and Emotions: A Methodological Exploration” with Dr. Sara Honarmand Ebrahimi. 

The history of internationalism is complex, messy and multifaceted. This statement has preoccupied many historians (and other scholars) since at least the 1990s. Most recently, seeking to revise further assumptions about the category ‘international’, scholars have grown concerned with the lived experience and emotional history of internationalism, but without engaging with histories of experiences and emotions in meaningful and sustained ways. At this important moment in the writing of histories of experiences and emotions, when they are rapidly expanding, we might ask what potential do these histories hold for the study of history of internationalism? How can they help revise and expand our popular understanding of the category ‘international’ further. In this talk, Dr. Sara Honarmand Ebrahimi will attempt to attend to these questions, with room for questions and discussion afterward!

Sara Honarmand Ebrahimi is an interdisciplinary architectural historian. Before joining Goethe University Frankfurt am Main as a Humboldt Research Fellow, she was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Architecture, Planning and Environmental Policy, University College Dublin (2021-22), and a Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture, the University of Edinburgh (2019-20). She studied for her PhD in University College Dublin, where she was an Irish Research Council (IRC) doctoral scholar. Her research interests address the multifaceted origins of ideas and practices in the history of international health and architecture and consider the history of emotions as a way of doing architectural history.

The North American Chapter on the History of Emotion is dedicated to promoting the work of scholars of emotion in North America and abroad. We organize and publicize exciting work in the field, including a biennial conference, colloquia, newsletters, and more! You can find our website here, or follow us on Twitter @NACHEmotion.
