Sam Boss ’08, Ph.D. candidate (History, Brown University), will present his current research. This is part of the History Department’s Speaker Series for the 2013 College Bicentennial.
This talk will examine the ways that the combined crises of the Late Middle Ages (including plague, war, famine, revolts, etc.) affected policies and attitudes towards outsiders such as merchants, pilgrims, refugees, and foreign mercenaries within three different cities in France: Montpellier, Lyon, and Rouen. How do diverse communities define themselves? How does crisis affect understandings of who belongs and who is an outsider?
