This study day is part of the Street life and street culture: Between Early Modern Europe and the Present network, funded by the AHRC as part of the Beyond Text project (see Our study day brings together academics and policymakers in a discussion around themes to do with public space and the mapping of behaviour and experience.

The Street life and street culture network has set out to build an international team of scholars with shared research interests in the interdisciplinary study of urban culture; in particular the relationship between the built environment and the social fabric of contemporary and Early Modern cities. By entering into a dynamic discourse with specialists from non-historical disciplines, we are pursuing the potential for “experiential” studies of street life, in a two-way discussion linking the historic past to the present.

The day is made up of two panels and a discussion session:

Session 1: What is the Street?

Session 2: How Can Urban Experience be Recognised, Recorded, and Mapped?
