Interview with the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions

The following is a recently released video of an interview conducted at the University of Melbourne in September 2013.  The ARC CHE in Melbourne have also made other interviews with historians of emotion publicly available here.


Interview with Radio Télévision Suisse for ‘Les sagas fantastiques…en 2014′

This video (which is in French) is a feature prepared by Christophe Schenk for Radio Télévision Suisse on the popularity of fantasy franchises such as Game of ThronesThe Hunger Games, and Lord of the Rings, among others.  It aired at the beginning of 2014.  Apologies in advance for my feeble French, which is mercifully featured for only a few seconds.


Lecture: ‘Getting Emotional About Shame in Medieval English Literature’

The below is a recording of a lecture delivered at the ARC CHE at the University of Sydney in August 2013.  More of the ARC CHE’s UStream broadcasts may be viewed here.

Exhibition: Temptation and Salvation: The Psalms of King David

In 2009 I co-curated an exhibition at the J. Paul Getty Museum which featured manuscripts of the psalms, as well as images drawn from the Bible story of King David.  The exhibition checklist is available here, and the Getty press release concerning the exhibition may be found here. Publications relating to the exhibition include:
