A useful reading list on objects and emotions. Do add any further suggestions.
At the Emotional Objects conference, delegates repeatedly noted the difficulty of finding ‘textbook’ sources on the material culture of emotions. In response we have started a reading list to bring together some of the most relevant sources. Particularly pertinent texts are in Bold.
Please tweet @EmotionalObject or email us firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions!
