Abstract

This article focuses on the emotional resilience of prisoners that affected both
the prison community and their personal selves by using sources from the
prison archives of Rotterdam and ‘s-Hertogenbosch from the years 1800-1830.
Concentrating on emotional practices of fear, sadness, and anger, this contribution
problematizes the idea of the passive and powerless prisoner. Moreover, it
aims to show that prisoners were a small power within the nineteenth-century
prison by examining the relationship between resilience, emotions, and agency.
