  • Descrizione:

    How emotional typologies were used by Jesuits to classify Asian people

    The role of Jesuit emotional practices and their impact on creating stereotypes of people of the Asia-Pacific region were previously pushed to one side. By interpreting emotions as practices, the EU-funded EMOPractices project will bring to light the role emotions played in the Jesuit missions of the modern period. In doing so, it will help to address the historical roots of racial and ethnic stereotyping connected to discrimination. In order to achieve this, the project will analyse emotions in handwritten and printed texts produced in six Catholic missions in the region, highlighting the connection between emotions and the image of the other.
