Abandoned Settlements: Discontinuity and Identity
Human settlements are changeable and are being changed. The processes that come into play here are manifold: abandonment, interruption, relocation, shrinking, growth, change of status, re-naming and re-settlement. The focus of the workshop is on the fragmentation of settlement continuity in antiquity by natural events, social processes and political intervention; other areas of investigation are the construction of identity of settlements, in particular also the selective use of a settlement's diversity.
Teilnehmer sind u.a.: Mark Altaweel (University College London/ CAS Fellow), Katherine Blouin (University of Toronto/CAS Fellow), Jennifer R. Pournelle (University of South Carolina/CAS Fellow).
