Lecture by Dr. Davide Cristoferi (Ghent University) for the Anglo-Belgian Digital Research Network for Medieval Urban History

Friday 15th October (16.00 CET), Dr. Davide Cristoferi (Ghent UNiversity) will speak on ''The Golden Grass: Pastures Grazing, Commons Expropriation and Transhumance Development in Late Medieval Southern Tuscany (14th-15th c.)'.

Dr. Cristoferi is a postdoctoral researcher at the History Department of Ghent University. His research focuses on economic inequality and different mechanisms of expropriation, management and redistribution of land and land revenues across Tuscany and, in a comparative perspective, Western Europe in late Middle Ages. In this regard, he studied the development of transhumance and the public management of common land in late medieval Southern Tuscany during his PhD in Medieval History and Cultural Heritage at the University of Siena (2016) and the role of mezzadria in shaping socio-economic inequalities in late medieval Tuscany at Ghent University (GINi project, 2015-2020).

This digital lecture (MS Teams group) is organised by the Anglo-Belgian Digital Research Network for Medieval Urban History (Queen Mary University London & Ghent University). It is open to all, but registration is required. Please write to Stefan.Meysman@UGent.be .
