Los días 21 y 22 de noviembre de 2019, se celebra la Conferencia Internacional que lleva por título Patterns of change: the european countryside during the migration period (300-700 CE), en Tübingen (Alemania), organizada por el investigador Angelo Castrorao Barba, miembro del LAAC (Escuela de Estudios Árabes, Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Granada) e Irene Bavuso (Tübingen, Alemania).
The understanding of migrations is fundamental for reconstructing the major transformations occurred across Europe between 300 and 700 CE. The impact of migrations on social and economic changes, the nature and characteristics of the flows of people, and their relations with the local populations in terms of construction of identities have generated a lively debate in scholarship involving different theoretical approaches. Based on written and archaeological sources, the debate is constantly nourished by new archaeological discoveries which allow for increasingly refined historical models and complex pictures of socio-economic development. The importance of interdisciplinarity for the field has long been recognised, yet the different nature of our sources often results in the diverging perspectives offered by historians and archaeologists. The core of this Conference is the new settlement pattern which came into appearance in rural areas across Europe during the Migrations period broadly understood (ca. 300-700). We aim to address the impact of the inflow and outflow of migrations on the landscape, the creation of new patterns of settlement, and, more generally, the role of migrations and mobility in transforming society and economy. Such themes are often investigated under a regional or macro-regional viewpoint, which results in too fragmented an understanding of a widespread phenomenon. Yet it remains crucial to assess the broader picture encompassing individual territories and their specificities. Contributions by experts of different areas and disciplines will allow us to draw an integrating picture of territories normally investigated as separate entities. In this way, the Conference aims to critically establish grounds for new comparisons and historical models.
