The volume links current emotions research in the disciplines of cultural science and history with the fields of historical culture and historical didactics. By doing so it works its way through the fundamental paradigms of historical didactics. It thereby focuses on categorial concepts such as the historical formation of meaning, empathy, historical imagination or narrativity, historical culture, historical awareness and historical identity. The contributions on theories, fundamental terms, different places and media of historical learning examine the question where emotions can be positioned in historical learning processes, that is to say, how they can pre-structure and guide encounters with the past. Standards are formulated by which future historical learning can orient itself with and about emotions. The contributions are conceived as a basis and stimulus for further discussion in research, teaching and practice.
