Cursusdoelen
The seminar focuses on developing the students' research skills, primarily a critical and analytical reflection on the scholarly literature, including the methodologies employed by each scholar. Additionally, the course will be instrumental in developing the students’ writing skills, in the form of: (a) weekly research assignments; and (b) a final research paper.
Inhoud
Using a rich variety of archaeological and historical data, this course presents recent trends and methodologies in the study of the Roman world. The theme of the course is ancient migration and its numerous implications: religious, social, economic and political. We will be focusing on the context of the Roman world, but also reflect on what this history of migration might teach us about the processes occurring in our own time.

We will begin by attempting to define migration, and distinguish between different types of migrational processes in antiquity. We will inquire about the differences between migrants and travelers, and between migration and mobility. Can we clearly distinguish between them in the context of the Roman world? The course will further discuss the impact factors, implications, and consequences of migration, looking at both the individual and the collective.

This research seminar devotes great attention to the sources that can be employed to study migration in the Roman world: archaeology, epigraphy and history. Novel methods in these areas -- from stable isotope analysis through geospatial network modelling -- are presented and discussed, highlighting their advantages and disadvantages over traditional methods.
