London and New York: Routledge, 2016. — 220 p.Mapping Space, Sense, and Movement in Florence explores the potential of digital mapping or Historical GIS as a research and teaching tool to enable researchers and students to uncover the spatial, kinetic, and sensory dimensions of the early modern city. The exploration focuses on new digital research and mapping projects that engage the rich social, cultural, and artistic life of Florence in particular. One is a new GIS tool known as DECIMA (Digitally Encoded Census Information and Mapping Archive), and the other is a smartphone app called Hidden Florence. The international collaborators who have helped build these and other projects address three questions: how such projects can be created when there are typically fewer sources than for modern cities; how they facilitate more collaborative models for historical research into social relations, senses, and emotions; and how they help us interrogate older historical interpretations and create new models of analysis and communication. Four authors examine technical issues around the software programs and manuscripts. Five other authors then describe how GIS can be used to advance and develop existing research projects. Finally, four authors look to the future and consider how digital mapping transforms the communication of research results and makes it possible to envision new directions in research. This exciting new volume is illustrated throughout with maps, screenshots, and diagrams to show the projects at work. It will be essential reading for students and scholars of early modern Italy, the Renaissance, and digital humanities.List of figures List of tables Acknowledgements Abbreviations List of contributors Introduction Thinking and using DECIMA: neighbourhoods and occupations in Renaissance Florence The route of governmentality: surveying and collecting urban space in ducal Florence From the Decima to DECIMA and back again: the data behind the data Shaping the streetscape: institutions as landlords in early modern Florence Women behind walls: tracking nuns and socio-spatial networks in sixteenth-century Florence Locating the sex trade in the early modern city: space, sense, and regulation in sixteenth-century Florence Plague and the city: methodological considerations in mapping disease in early modern Florence Seeing sound: mapping the Florentine soundscape Mapping fear: plague and perception in Florence and Tuscany Locating experience in the Renaissance city using mobile app technologies: the Hidden Florence project Conclusion: towards early modern spatial humanities Index
