Re: Call for Papers: Panel "Generational Affects: Anthropological Ways Toward Re-Enchanting Disenchantment" IUAES Congress 2020

Dear Colleagues,

Please note that the deadline for paper proposals to the panel "Generational Affects: Anthropological Ways Toward Re-Enchanting Disenchantment" (panel no. 30) that Adam Kingsmith and I are organizing at the next IUAES Congress has been extended to August 15. The Congress is supposed to take place on 7-11 October 2020 in Šibenik, Croatia, but organizers are now working to make online participation possible.

The Role of Emotions in Healing.

Dear Historians of Emotions,

A new free paper is now available to download, titled Plant Series, No. 8. MS408, Paris quadrifolia. The paper reveals some remarkable historic information about the use of the plant's toxins for treating conditions, diseases and infections. The plant also had religious significance due to its physical appearance, so it was believed to possess godly powers. These papers provide a good deal of information about human emotional interaction with medicine during the Medieval, when belief played a pivotal role.
