Abstract

DANTAS, Mariana  and  HART, Emma. THE URBAN AND THE GLOBAL IN THE EARLY MODERN PERIOD IN A COMPARATIVE PERSPECTIVE. Almanack [online]. 2020, n.24, ed00119.  Epub Apr 30, 2020. ISSN 2236-4633.  https://doi.org/10.1590/2236-463324ed00119.

This dossier argues that the historical phenomena of the urban and the global have interacted in a dialogical fashion: urban dynamics sustained the creation of a modern and globally connected world while the global movement of people, goods, ideas, and practices helped to define urban realities and ideals. The perspective that emphasizes the interconnection between the city and globalization-the global city-is prevalent in urban studies that focus on the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Applying the same analytical perspective to the early modern period using an implicit comparison between different urban centers and communities elucidates the role cities like Rio de Janeiro played in that era of globalization, as well as the impact that historical moment had on the city.

Keywords : Cities; Globalization; Early Modern Period; Rio de Janeiro; Atlantic World.
