Marquer et pratiquer les lisières urbaines. Les portes de ville à l’époque moderne

Abstract : Based on the Portes et périphéries articles published in <> (2016/2), this work examines city gates in the early modern period in their architectural dimension, as monuments, and in their material, social and symbolic functions. The latter involve setting specific communities and their activities, organising circulations and controlling exchanges, and defining internal and external territorialities. The Portes et périphéries articles explore how, beyond their significance as monuments, citizens and travellers make these gates their own. It opens new paths of enquiry by crossing basic elements of urban modelling as defined over the centuries, with the significance these gates have been given by different communities according to their uses, their management, their rearranging, and how they have been integrated into various narrative and visual contexts.
