Urban Culture and Ideologies in Medieval and Early Modern Europe: c.1100-1600

Thursday 30 January 2014 - Friday 31 January 2014

Massey University, Albany Campus, Auckland, New Zealand

This conference will focus on the textual traditions of the urban world:  the literature of all kinds produced in the urban context, from chronicles to song, illumination to speech acts.  Its main theme is notions of ‘urbanity’.  What is ‘urban’ about ‘urban culture’?  In what ways did urbanity contribute to cultural and ideological sign systems in political speech, historiography, literature, the visual arts and music?  How did the production and reception of chronicles shape urban identity – or identities?
