Felt History? Emotions, History and Learning History

Emotions are part of the process of learning history as individuality-felt emotions of the pupils and historical objectives. This paper argues, from a historical perspective, that emotions and their expression are culturally and temporally specific. Therefore, it is not possible to feel or relive the emotions felt by historical agent. To learn (from) history is to experience the temporal, cultural and geographical other. Thus, this paper calls for an emotionally sensible process of learning history, in which it is possible to think and feel openly, and speaks out against the emotional choreographies of contemporary adventure histories.
