Abstract

© 2020, © 2020 The Author(s). Published by Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.While in the social sciences everyday mobility and street use are seen as central to the understanding of urban societies, in the work of historians these phenomena only play a limited role. Building upon methods from related fields and using digital tools, this article proposes a new methodological approach to study historical mobility and street use. This ‘snapshot approach’ facilitates intercultural comparability and creates possibilities for systematic spatial analyses. We propose it forms an important tool to enhance our understanding of gendered urban experience in the past.
