Conference: "Legal Pluralism and Social Change in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages"

Thu, May 17, 2018 (All day) to Sat, May 19, 2018 (All day)

A Conference in honor of Professor John Haldon

Throughout his career, Professor John Haldon has been a hinge between different academic cultures, methods, and disciplines. A true scholar of Byzantine society, he has combined meticulous work on texts and material evidence with a holistic approach to social history that has connected the study of the Byzantine world to new methodological perspectives and ever wider horizons for comparison with other political systems and structures across the European and Islamic worlds, from late ancient to early modern times. This conference will take stock of Haldon’s approach by focusing on the history of law and legal culture in the transformation of the Roman world.
