Informed by disciplines including anthropology, criminology, the history of art, literary studies and sociology, as well as by history, these chapters focus on specific places at particular times.

Florence and its university during the early Renaissance by Jonathan Davies( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book makes a substantial contribution to the study of Florentine history. It answers an important but hitherto unresolved question: why did the Florentine Republic keep a university in its capital city between 1385 and 1473 rather than follow the example of other Italian states in maintaining a university in a subject town?

Scholarly self-fashioning and community in the early modern university by Jonathan Davies( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A greater fluidity in social relations and hierarchies was experienced across Europe in the early modern period, a consequence of the major political and religious upheavals of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. During this time university scholars demonstrated a great energy when characterizing themselves socially as learned men. This book investigates the significance and implications of academic self-fashioning throughout Europe in the early modern period. It describes a general and growing deliberation in the fashioning of individual, communal and categorical academic identity."
