Cities and Science: Urban History and the History of Science in the Study of Early Modern and Modern Europe

This course, aimed at graduate and doctoral students, explores new approaches and connections in the history of science and urban history. Historians of science have been showing increased interest in various urban aspects of the production and dissemination of science in the transforming public sphere. At the same time, urban historians have had their own discussion of the role of science in the city. This interdisciplinary summer course will bring together senior and junior scholars of urban history, the history of science, and other related fields in order to exchange ideas and develop new research agendas. The course aims to expand the “urban variable” in the history of science and, at the same time, to designate a space for the sciences in urban history from the early modern period to the early twentieth century. Furthermore, it offers a new space for discussion within historical studies, not only for historians of science and urban historians, but also for practitioners of other fields, such as environmental studies, gender studies, literature, science and technology studies, sociology, cultural or social anthropology
