Tuesday, March 5th / 7:00 pm / Diamond 141
Speaker: Sam Boss (Colby ’08),
Brown University Department of History
“Outsiders: Crisis and the Limits of Urban Community in Late Medieval France”
This talk will examine the ways that the combined crises of the Late Middle Ages (including plague, war, famine, revolts, etc.) affected policies and attitudes towards outsiders such as merchants, pilgrims, refugees, and foreign mercenaries within three different cities in France: Montpellier, Lyon, and Rouen. How do diverse communities define themselves? How does crisis affect understandings of who belongs and who is an outsider?
