New Special Collection in Le foucaldien: "Medieval and Early Modern Places and Spaces of Knowledge"

This special collection welcomes articles discussing places and spaces connected to knowledge and its practices in the premodern period. In order to be fully understood and investigated, knowledge should be spatialized and studied in relation to the spaces, either physical or conceptual, in which it is produced, transformed, and disseminated. In addition, practices of knowledge are spatially determined and create social and discursive spaces as such, through the dialogical relationship between the participants. Ideally the contributions will address lieux de savoir (Christian Jacob) and situated knowledge in the premodern world, with a special attention to micro-historical approaches and urban contexts, including cartographic representations.
