A Eurasian Perspective
This project brings together the results of the other subprojects and puts them into the wider context of Eurasian urban experience. As such the project aims to unravel how women’s access to city streets was shaped in the run up to the modern era. It will offer a thoroughly interdisciplinary analysis in which the spatial, the material, the visual, and the socio-economic are combined. This project will extend the analyses of Edo, Amsterdam and Berlin through a comparison with a selection of other cities in Asia and Europe. It will draw on printed sources such as travel accounts, contemporary urban histories, legal treatises, as well as maps, drawings, and paintings.
