CfP RSA Berlin: EAHN-sponsored session Territories & Networks in Early Modern Cities,

61st Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America, Berlin, 26-28 March 2015
Session sponsored by the European Architectural History Network

Early modern cities are characterized by the development of complex social, political, economic, and cultural relationships that found expression at a variety of scales in the built environment. Buildings and urban interventions were engaged and deployed to communicate the identities of, alliances among, and differences between individuals, corporate groups, and institutions, ordering and re-ordering space and experience.

While the territories referred to in the session title allude to modes of differentiation, the networks address connections and correspondences between people and places. We seek papers that consider the ways in which early modern cities shaped and accommodated the formation, manifestation, fragmentation, or disintegration of these relationships.

Please submit a paper title; abstract (150 words maximum); keywords; and a brief C.V. (300 words maximum) by June 8 to Saundra Weddle (sweddle@drury.edu) and Maarten Delbeke (maarten.delbeke@ugent.be). Membership in the EAHN is encouraged.
