The first conference of HEX (The Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions) was held at the University of Tampere on 4-5 March 2019. Focusing on the methods used to uncover, study and analyze ‘experience’ in the past, it brought together a number of themes and perspectives on different concepts expressing ‘experience’.
PI Josephine Hoegaerts gave a presentation on the claims to vocal experience and expertise underpinning practices studied in the CALLIOPE project. The presentation was based on Hoegaerts' article Chewing Demosthenes’ Pebbles: Embodied Experience Making the Scientist’s Persona, ca.1830-1910, published in Persona Studies 4/1, 2018. The article is open access.
