Published on

Talk held at Urban History Exhibited. Seminar at Den Gamle By in Aarhus, Denmark. 25th October 2011.

Søren Bitsch Christensen, City Archivist of Aarhus and former Director of the Danish Centre for Urban History at Aarhus University and Den Gamle By:

Concepts of urban history in town monographs, on the Web, and at the museum; Complementary or conflicting?

Abstract:
Urban historians are many; but are too often too isolated from each others in museums and archives, at universities and other institutions. Although they share the same interest in the urban community as a central frame for modern life, they are likely to conceptualize the city differently, to think in different ways of communicating their work, and too give priority to different narratives. Looking back on the first ten years of the Danish Centre for Urban History, the papers asks, if it is not possible to cross some of these boundaries?
