Three Day Workshops on the Mediterranean City

Over the last year mediaeval and ancient historians from St Andrews have participated in 3 day-workshops  discussing comparative approaches to the Mediterranean City. Successive meetings were focused on Urban Space, Religion and on Connectivity and were attended by graduate students and academic staff from a range of disciplines including art history, archaeology, history and literature. Each meeting consisted of a series of very short papers followed by round table discussion.

The organizers were David Rundle (Essex), Frances Andrews (St Andrews) and Christopher Smith (St Andrews/BSR). Other participants from the School of Classics included Rebecca Sweetman, Doug Underwood, Anouk Vermeulen and Greg Woolf.

The meetings took place in St Andrews, Rome and Oxford and were co-sponsored by the St Andrews Institute of Mediaeval Studies, the Society for the Study of Mediaeval Languages and Literature and the British School at Rome.

An account of our conversations has been posted by David Rundle.
