Description

The fourteenth century is famous as an age of unrest and revolt. Some uprisings, such as the Jacquerie and the English Peasant Revolt, were primarily rural, while others, such as the Bristol Revolt and the Revolt of the Ciompi were essentially urban. We invite papers on all facets of uprisings across the fourteenth century, and particularly on connections between urban and rural revolts. Who were the rebels and what were their primary goals? How did the violence express their grievances and concerns? How did the news of rebellions spread through social networks? What factors influenced the success or failure of these rebellions?
