Smith, Noah (2023) Remembering Kortrijk: Civic Pride & Cultural Memory in Flanders c. 1302 - c. 1348. Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) thesis, University of Kent,. (doi:10.22024/UniKent/01.02.104344) (KAR id:104344)


Employing an interdisciplinary methodology across three case studies, this thesis examines the development and manifestation of civic pride and cultural memory in fourteenth-century Flanders. Object, text, and image are brought together to explore how the guilds of West Flanders and their descendants saw themselves in the context of their communities and constructed complex political and cultural narratives that portrayed them as active participants in the tragedies and triumphs of their time.
