Have you ever wondered what happened to cities and towns in the Roman Empire after the supposed "fall" of Rome in the fifth century CE? For centuries historians and enthusiasts have puzzled over the question, and historiographical debates have raged over whether or not the empire's cities collapsed or underwent a transformation into entirely new entities. Using research from the latest archeological findings, and exploring theoretical ideas of landscape, memory, religion and identity, students from Dr. Douglas Boin's graduate class, Cities from Late Antiquity to the Early Middle Ages, will unveil a first-of-its kind, digital, interactive resource for the study of Late Antique cities which will explore just what happened during this dynamic period of urban evolution. After a presentation from Dr. Boin and his students there will be a forum for discussion, with drinks and nibbles to follow.
