New: Edited volume on technology and emotions

edited by Martina Heßler


The love for cars, atomic euphoria, fear of machines, rage and frustration in dealing with computers: technology triggered diverse and sometimes violent emotions in the 19th and 20th centuries. Emotions related to technology influenced its development, its acceptance and its use. Now, a new edited volume by Martina Heßler deals with this important but often neglected topic in history. With contributions by Christopher Neumainer, Kevin Liggieri, Garbiele Gramelsberger oder Julia Zons.
