This issue’s historian has influenced the discipline of history for decades. William Reddy’s  works have contributed in changing how historians regard emotions, from mere expressions of irrational feelings to a historic source of social, cultural and political history. Among his works are empirical case-studies of the French Revolution and Indian monarchies in the 14th century, as well as influential theoretical reflections on how historians can analyse past emotions. Fortid is therefore honoured to present this interview with Professor Emeritus William M. Reddy.
