  3. In August 2012, the Centre for the History of Emotions in Melbourne held a symposium on Disaster, Death and the EmotIons in the Shadow of the Apocalypse, which examined the Apocalyptic imagination, and emotional response to natural disaster in Europe in the Early Modern period.

    Coinciding with this symposium was an exhibition at The National Gallery of Victoria and an accompanying publication, The Four Horsemen, both collaborative projects between NGV curators Cathy Leahy and Petra Kayser and two researchers at the University of Melbourne, CHE Chief Investigator, Charles Zika, and Associate Investigator Jenny Spinks. The, exhibition presented a fascinating insight into art, life, thought and emotions of late medieval, Renaissance and Reformation Europe when apocalyptic fears where rampant.
