Sources of Early Modern Emotion in English,


Sources of Early Modern Emotion in English, 1500-1700 (SEMEE) is a living, collaborative project designed to aid researchers working on emotion and affect in the English Renaissance.  It contains editable bibliographies of primary sources related to the study of emotion, as well as a bibliography of secondary scholarship on early modern emotion.  

SEMEE is organized around a series of fluid GoogleDoc bibliographies, linked on this page, which can be edited by anyone.  For instructions on how to add content to these bibliographies, click here.

Please note that SEMEE is in its infancy, and will continue to grow.  Your efforts to add content to the bibliographies will be greatly appreciated!
