Studies in Popular Culture MUP

  • Integrates historical research on a wide variety of leisure activities which are usually studied in isolation
  • Problematises the traditional gulf between the early modern and modern periods
  • Innovates by developing a systematic transnational perspective: charting flows of influence, analysing processes of selection and adaptation and constructing entangled histories
  • Analyses the urban variable, urban space and urban competition as key factors of European cultural change
