Elisabeth D Narkin
Elisabeth's dissertation project, “Rearing the Royals: Architecture and the Spatialization of Royal Childhood in France, 1499-1610,” analyzes the manner in which the social life of the French royal family unfolded in châteaux located in and around Paris and in the Loire Valley. Using correspondence, account books, and notarial records as well as images and architectural plans, it examines the lives of the royal children and their entourage of tutors, governesses, siblings, and playmates to understand how architecture actively shaped and was transformed by the needs of the royal family. Research on the project was funded in Spring 2015 by a fellowship from the Centre de recherche du château de Versailles. Area:
