Transnational Emotions in Times of Conflict: An Afterword

Chapter

Abstract

The afterword reflects on the case studies presented in the book to then outline the potential role of the arts during moments of conflict. Drawing on the example of Giacomo Meyerbeer’s grands opéras in mid nineteenth-century Europe, Körner draws attention to the place of emotions in establishing transnational subjectivities. Meanwhile, his example also cautions us to stay away from facile conclusions about the emergence of international solidarity.
