Catalan Society (Sixteenth-Eighteenth Centuries). Identities, conflicts and representations.

Fifth Conference of Early Modern Catalan History (2003)

The analysis of the evolution of Catalan society between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries represented the principal theme upon which the reports and presentations of the Fifth Conference of Early Modern Catalan History were based.

The aim of the conference was to investigate the construction of social identities and the tensions this generated, the relationship between community and intimacy and feminine experiences within Catalan society throughout the Early Modern period. These topics were considered from innovative perspectives, taking into account familial strategies, the mechanisms of sociability and the expression of these in the architectural heritage.
