Overview

The Woolf Institute together with the Society for the Medieval Mediterranean invite you to their webinar series.

Approaching the Early Medieval Iberian Economy from the ground up.

This webinar offers an overview of a recent special issue of Al-Masaq on the economy of the Iberian Peninsula in the Visigothic period. The articles concentrated on the many different ways that people experienced economic changes and how the lives of individuals were linked to and shaped broader economic systems. Authors explored how and why people made particular economic decisions, why local communities gave up a share of their resources to their landlords (lay or ecclesiastical) and to their rulers. These themes were examined at all levels of society, from peasants to elites, in the process demonstrating how people were embedded in agricultural and commercial activities locally at the same time as they were connected to regional and interregional economies. The overall aim was to demonstrate how ordinary people lived through and helped transform the late- Roman into the early medieval economy in Iberia.

The speakers are: Sara Prata, Nerea Fernández Cadenas, Linda Gosner and Damián Fernández.
