Call for Papers European Association of Archaeologists Conerence 2024 (Rome) - ‘Living Through Crisis: Urban Household Archaeologies in the Medieval World’

https://www.e-a-a.org/eaa2024, session number 629.

The household offers a scale of analysis on persistence and change appropriate to understanding the variability of lived experiences in the medieval world. It offers a contrast to studies of towns and cities at the scale of the settlement, which are necessarily prone to degrees of generalisation and abstraction. Households are sites of consumption, social production, economic activity and care, which provide a window into the social relations constitutive of urban life. Urban households are heterogeneous, with varying economic bases, levels of wealth and demographic composition. As such, their study allows for the development of a nuanced understanding of how urban communities lived through the crises and turbulence of the Middle Ages, and, by extension, the complexity and diversity of urban lived experiences.

The aim of this session is to develop a comparative, household-scale approach to urban life in the medieval World (broadly conceived as the period c500-1600). Specifically, we wish to explore issues such as:
How do experiences of urbanity vary within and between households?
How did households experience and act on moments of crisis or change?
How do households contribute to the sustenance of the wider fabric of medieval urbanism?
How do the actions of households shape wider neighbourhoods, communities, and settlements, and how are they shaped by their wider social relations?

Contributions which explore a range of evidence including, but not limited to, material culture, buildings, environmental remains and historical sources are welcome, and contributions which explore households in an explicitly comparative sense are particularly encouraged. The session is a collaboration between 2 research projects; ENDURE: Urban Life in a Time of Crisis (which explores urban lifeways in later medieval England) and Consequences of Crisis (which explores the consequences of crisis on towns in later medieval Scandinavia).

History

Birmingham Byzantine Studies was launched in 1965 through the initiative of Sir Ellis Waterhouse, Director of the Barber Institute between 1952 and 1970. n 1976 the initial success of the Byzantine programme was marked by the creation of a Centre for Byzantine Studies (CBS) and in the years 1976-1984 the centre operated separately from Modern Greek Studies until their merger led to the renaming of the joint enterprise as the Centre for Byzantine Studies and Modern Greek (CBS & MG). This joining of forces and linking of interests had already begun to take shape in 1975 with the establishment of a new journal called Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies (BMGS) linking the two subject areas. At the same time (i.e, in the year 1984) the centre’s academic profile was expanded to include Ottoman Studies with the intention it should provide the bridging element between the study of the Greek world of the Balkans, Asia Minor and beyond between the end of the medieval period and the beginning of the modern era.
