Spanning Europe, Asia and the Pacific, Encounters with Emotions investigates experiences of face-to-face transcultural encounters from the seventeenth century to the present and the emotional dynamics that helped to shape them. Each of the case studies collected here investigate some of the most fascinating historiographical questions that arise from the study of emotion, from the strategies people have used to interpret and understand each other's emotions to the roles that emotion has played in obstructing communication across cultural divides. Together, they explore the cultural aspects of nature and the bodily dimensions of nurture in order to trace the historical trajectories that shape our understandings of current cultural boundaries and effects of globalization.
