Brief description A History of Intimate Relationships in Scotland: Emotion and Family among the Lower Orders, 1661-1830. This project will provide a comprehensive and novel analysis of intimate relationships amongst the Scottish lower orders between 1661 and 1830, filling a gap in the European/Anglophone research on the emotional lives of the poor. It will use an innovative methodology to access emotions amongst a group who did not leave traditional 'feeling' sources, such as letters and diaries, to create a picture of their emotional and familial world. Its novel methodology will supply a model for doing similar work in other contexts, while its insights into how this group formed families, and used emotions in that process, will provide historical data that can inform social policy and strengthen Australia's social and economic fabric.
