A closer look at the growth of Munich in the 19th century
The German city of Munich – like many other industrial metropolises of the 19th century – was faced with the new technologies, the integration of new immigrants, and the threat of epidemics. Bearing all this in mind, the ERC-funded CityRising project will study how Munich dealt with the consequences of a technological shock like the introduction of mass transportation. It will also show how occupations and businesses were subject to differential agglomeration forces. The project will also study how members of a long marginalised Jewish community were integrated into the growing city, and how they rose to the ranks of the educated upper middle classes. The provision of health amenities like sanitation facilities will also be studied.
