Taking up approaches of space and urban theory, my PhD project analyses the perception of cities in Romance literature of the early modern period. Currently, I study the case of Santiago de Compostela on the basis of a vast corpus of French, Spanish, Italian and Latin text sources, such as pilgrimage guides and reports, diaries, and other literary and non-literary writings. The geographical focus of my research is on Romance Europe (esp. Spain and France).

Keywords: Literature, city, urbanity, early modernity, Spain, France, Santiago de Compostela, St James cult,pilgrimage, perception, agency, imaginary
