A.   簡介 Introduction (within 500 words, Chinese or English)
 
Rural Space in the Middle Ages and Early Modern Age: The Spatial Turn in Premodern Studies, published in 2012,is a book illuminating aspects of life through the concept of space. As the author notices that city dwellers before 1800 tended to imitate aristocratic culture, by pursuing political and economic interests, while the people in rural areas or villages had to encounter various changes due to economical vibrations, or the rise of the bourgeois. If the readers compare another volume published by the same author, Urban Space in the Middle Ages and the Early Modern Age (2009), a parallel study may project onto the concern about socio-economic, legal and religious framework. Rural Space has 32 sections, including notions about nature, meanings of wilderness, Peasants’ wishes, experience of the youth in wilderness, nature as testing ground, rural space in medieval narratives, social order in rural areas, the Protestant Reformation in rural areas, and peasant figure in early modern epics etc.
 
 
B.   延伸閱讀 Extended Reading
The Power of Space in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe discusses the politics of space in the most popular cities in Italy, France and the Low Countries. Marc Boone and Martha Howell use Lefebvre’s theories to examine the meaning of space in early modern everyday life; as the authors suggest, politics of space is seen in symbols, maps and laws. Similar representation of spatial and geographical notion is found in Valerie Ann Kivelson’s book, Cartographies of Tsardom: The Land and Its Meanings in Seventeenth Century. Kivelson’s book focuses more on cartography and mapping and representation of the land under imperialist rule of Tsar. As she said the charming maps not only suggest ways to travel but also possibilities to trade and explore. In this book, she argues about the politics of land as related to autocracy, signs of space, explored land and colonial encounters. Commissioned mapping proves to be a significant part of the tsarist regime, and this work by Kivelson not merely highlights cartography as a research target but also introduces the idea of “space” in the early modern representation of social, political, and religious codes in Moscovy.
