Participants in the specialist course Shaping, Representing and Using the Medieval City will explore the development, use, shaping and portrayal of the medieval city from several perspectives.

The cross-disciplinary programme is structured around two main elements: seminars and workshops.

Participants will receive reading material before the start of the course.  Each of the lecturers will develop a specific theme during the seminar through a case study. The workshops have been designed to encourage discussion between lecturers and course participants. Students may be invited to complete small assignments in order to start the debate.

This Autumn School is organized for MA and PhD-students in any discipline of medieval studies (archaeology, art history, history, literature, music …) with a research interest in medieval cities: emigration and immigration, urban public spheres, urban space, urban elites (civil or religious), urban rebellion...

English is the language of instruction and discussion.
