Description

The session brings together scholars to honor the contributions of Sharon Farmer to environmental and landscape history. Farmer’s 2013 Speculum article, “Aristocratic Power and the ‘Natural’ Landscape,” illuminated the crucial role resource management played in the local and regnal centralization under King Philip IV of France (1285-1314) and Count Robert II of Artois (1250-1302). These papers situate water management in their socio-political networks (urban, ecclesiastical, and rural elite) in England, France, and Italy (Venice) ca. 11th to 15th centuries to consider the ways in which water management drove and was shaped by wider political developments.
