Professor Nicholas Purcell Presents: Not Just About Slavery: Selling People in Greco-Roman Antiquity
Start Date: 4/16/2013Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 4/16/2013End Time: 6:00 PM
Event Description
Nicholas Purcell, Camden Professor of Ancient History at Oxford, has revolutionized the way we think about Mediterranean history. In his groundbreaking The Corrupting Sea (2000), co-authored with Peregrine Horden, he charted a new course for the study of this cultural crucible by demonstrating that it
consists of a series of micro-regions, each with a constituent micro-culture, that was linked together by this peculiar body of water in ways that have connected cultures and economies in the region into a kaleidoscopic whole. He has now turned his attention to the question of slavery and will speak to the
Mediterranean Studies Group on selling people in Greco-Roman antiquity.
