Global sensibilities group
The global sensibilities group brings together an interdisciplinary team to develop a 'new' history of ideas. This approach replaces the emphasis upon texts as a source of ideas, insisting on the importance of the social, cultural, visual, economic and political contexts in which ideas develop, on who is speaking, when and where.
Funded by a Faculty Collaborative Research Grant for 2013-2014, our interests are in themes that raise new questions about the history of ideas in respect of the boundaries between thought and feeling, and the universality or cultural specificity of particular beliefs and ideas.
