UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES)


Grant Awarded for Passionate Politics

24 July 2014

A new research initiative on “Passionate Politics” has just received £10,000 seed funding from the UCL Centre for Humanities Interdisciplinary Research Projects.

Based on a collaboration based between SSEES, the European Institute, and the Centre for Transnational History, the core group of the project consists of Tim Beasley-Murray, Dina Gusejnova, Axel Körner and Uta Staiger. 

Over the next three years the group will run a number of workshops, including one on ‘Revolutions, Protest and the Passions’, set up a reading group, and organise an international conference. To support its research as well as to promote public engagement with the project, the team will create a digital archive “Collecting Emotions”, featuring text, images, music, film and interviews.
