Digital medieval urban history lecture by Eric Namerich (PhD student, Harvard University)

Friday March 26th 2021 (4pm CET), we welcome Eric Namerich, PhD student at Harvard University (USA). Eric will deliver a paper entitled 'Corruption and Grain in Fourteenth-Century Lucca'.

Eric Namerich studies the experience and ideology of government in high and late medieval Europe. His dissertation explores these themes through the lives of “petty officials”—low-level functionaries who served the courts of public justice—in the cities of fourteenth-century Italy.

The digital lectures are organized and hosted every fortnight by Somewhere beyond the Sea, the Belgo-British Research Network. To register, get in touch with or DM your email address @MedievalUGent on Twitter.
