This conference will bring together an international group of scholars who have worked on Princeton’s FLAME project, as well as leading scholars on the late antique and early medieval economy worldwide (4th-8th centuries CE). Over three days, speakers will present new findings centered on the research priorities of the FLAME project. Participants will share insights on economic, political, and social changes throughout this period, but will also reflect upon the historiographical and methodological problems posed by the project itself. An exhibition of coins relating to the conference from the Princeton University Numismatic Collection will accompany the conference and will be on display outside of East Pyne 010 on March 18th and 19th.

The events will occur in-person on Princeton University campus, as well as virtually, by Zoom.

Keynote Speakers:
Rory Naismith, University of Cambridge
Florin Curta, University of Florida
Khodadad Rezakhani, University of Leiden
Stephan Heidemann, University of Heidelberg
