What Matters in Social Change? : The Uncertain Significance of Caring, of Emotions, in Generating Social Change

A Lecture by Professor Chris Beasley

Hosted by the Fay Gale Centre for Research on Gender and the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions (Europe 1100-1800)

This lecture employs a focus on masculinity and emotional bonds associated with care as a means to reconsider these accounts.
