Abstract

This article explores how, in interviews with women involved in nationalist and feminist politics in the Basque country, different political movements are associated with different emotions. In so doing, it draws on recent cultural theories of emotions as well as the history of emotions. The article looks at how certain emotions become attached to a specific political movement while other feelings move between them, becoming associated with a given political cause or idea at a particular moment in the narrator's life story. It argues that these emotional attachments and moving feelings are expressive of narrators' perceptions of changes in wider social values associated with nationalism and feminism throughout the period studied, as well as of the difficulties expressed by narrators in combining and sustaining multiple political commitments. As such, they are an important aspect of the history of political activism.
