Princeton University will hold the conference “Networks in Transition: Monetary Exchange from Antiquity to the Middle Ages” from 18th to 20th March 2022 at Princeton University as well as virtually, by Zoom.

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 18th and 19th March 2022. The events will occur in-person on Princeton University campus, as well as virtually, by Zoom.
