about this item

This volume crosses geographical as well as chronological divides in order to emphasise the mutability of the social margins, making an important contribution to research on social and urban history by considering a variety of groups identified as "marginal." Focusing on two key themes in relation to these groups - the language of marginality and the spaces of the margins - the volume counters the trend in the existing historiography to discuss the social margins either as a single, undifferentiated group or separate, unconnected ones, instead examining the effect that changing perceptions of social position had in shaping the spaces in which people worked, lived, or worshipped.
