From consumer revolution to mass market: Reinterpreting urban shopping from the Enlightenment to modernity
Guest lecture by Ilja van Damme, University of Antwerp
Associate Professor in Urban History at the University of Antwerp, Ilja van Damme, will visit Aarhus University with a talk on urban consumption and the assumptions we have about its link to modernity. Ilja van Damme is currently academic director of Centre for Urban History (CSG) and board member of the Urban Studies Institute (USI) of the University of Antwerp. His research relates to the late 18th and 19th century city as lived and spatial environment, consumption and shopping history and the city as a creative and socio-cultural environment.
