Description

This is the first of two session Politics of Migration and Mobility in the Middle Ages in which we will consider migration in the Middle Ages through the lens of the politics, administration, and the perception of social mobility in the period from the 3rd to the 16th century CE. We would like to focus on these questions in more local or regional contexts, in micro-politics rather than in large migration movements. In doing so we hope to explore questions such as how societies accommodated and integrated immigrants on a local and supra-local level, how they regulated horizontal mobility, how geographical migration was connected to social mobility, how social, ethnic, or gender differences were made into social boundaries, which differences mattered, and how they were maintained or transformed when people moved into a region or away from it.
