The Body in the City, 1100-1800

‘The Body in the City, 1100-1800’ Focus Program aims to investigate the complex, diverse and multi-layered realities and understandings of ‘the body’ in medieval and early modern societies. It brings together outstanding scholars from the University of London (Birkbeck College) and Monash, along with members of the Prato Consortium of Medieval and Renaissance Studies (Amsterdam, Arizona, Catholic University of America, Edinburgh, Queen Mary College, Toronto, Warwick, Prato State Archives) to research both real and metaphorical bodies in the urban context and investigate their inter-relationship. The research program encompasses various disciplines – art, architecture, literature, medicine, politics, religion, gender, society – and focusses on archival, textual, visual and environmental materials.
