Colloquium: Production and supply in the Roman world


This colloquium, organized by Candace Rice and Miko Flohr, focuses on the world of production and supply in the Roman Empire. Rather than focusing on one subset of questions, this colloquium casts the net wide and addresses a variety of approaches, datasets and regions to confront widely diverging perspectives on similar or comparable questions. This will foster debate between the participants on a methodological and theoretical level.
