Sources of Early Modern Emotion in English,


How to Contribute

SEMEE bibliographies are hosted on GoogleDocs; they can be edited by everyone.  For primary source bibliographies, there are 5 columns, reflecting  1) Publication Date; 2) Author; 3) Title; 4) Bibliographical Info; 5) Notes/Description. 

To add an entry, simply right-click on the table and select "Insert Row above/below," whereever it is chronologically appropriate:


Secondary source bibliographies are organized alphabetically, not chronologically; here, there are only two columns, one for the citation data and another for notes/abstract (if available).

Things to Consider:


  • Please feel free to add incomplete entries!   More data can always be filled in later.

  • For primary sources, it is best to list the earliest edition available -- but if that version doesn't have an EEBO transcription available, and a later edition does,  it's helpful to record in the notes.

  • In both primary and secondary sources, we should err on the side of repetition.  That is, if a document contains discussion of multiple emotions, it would be good to list it both in the "General Resources" bibliography and in the bibliographies devoted to each specific emotion.

  • Literary works should definitely be included!
