Cities and Citizenship after Rome

In the ancient world, citizenship implied both political and physical membership of specific cities. This model came under pressure in Late Antiquity with the universalisation of Roman citizenship under Caracalla, the spread of Christianity, and eventually the end of the Roman Empire in the west. This took place alongside a physical transformation of the ancient city. It has long been assumed that these changes brought an end to old Roman ideas of citizenship. This workshop addresses how ancient concepts of citizenship and the city adapted and changed to the new world of the Early Middle Ages. These questions will be addressed through a series of papers that stretch from the ancient to the medieval world. In doing so, this workshop aims to complicate narratives about the legacy of the Roman city and the development of ideas of citizenship in the medieval world.

This one-day workshop will be held on Friday October 5th in the Eastwood Room of the Postdoc Centre, 16 Mill Lane, Cambridge. For access to the full programme, click here.

Please arrive 09:00 for registration and the event will finish around 17:30.  

Refreshments and light lunch included.
