The Emotions of Internationalism

By analyzing the case of Dr. Auguste Rollier’s sanatoria for the treatment of tuberculosis in the Swiss village of Leysin, this chapter demonstrates the centrality of images in interwar internationalist practices. Following the blueprint set out by the League of Nations in this period, internationalists advocated for a holistic approach to healing: they linked physical cures with social, and political health; and they associated their attainment with specific visible emotional expressions. Most notably, internationalists created educational and work establishments with the explicit goal of instilling feelings such as “joy,” and they produced, reproduced, and distributed photographs to serve as evidence of their success. The aesthetics and assumptions they inaugurated proved long-lasting and influence international environments to this day.
