"In each town I find a triple harmony': Utopian Dimensions in Early Modern Urban Historiography" : CMEMS / PMRG Public Lecture Other events...
In referring to the history of ideas,"the Begriffsgeschichte“ and literary studies the paper examines the parallels between the pre-1800 urban historiography and the literary genre of early modern utopia as introduced and developed by Thomas More, Francis Bacon, Johann Valentin Andreae and/or Tommaso Campanella. The analysis of mostly Central European urban chronicles, burgher diaries and panegyrical texts discloses the strong presence of a normative vision of an idealized community which was projected, however, into the life of an existing city.
Speaker(s) Dr Jaroslav Miller, Go8 Fellow (CMEMS), Jaroslav Miller is Associate Professor of History at Palacký University Olomouc, Czech Republic. He is currently a Go8 Fellow with CMEMS at UWA.
