Anthropology of Roman Housing

Abstract : Combining concepts from historical anthropology with archaeological, iconographical and textual methods, this volume aims to reinvigorate the social history of the Roman living space. At a time when we reflect intensively on the issue of social cohesion, on the influence of architecture in lifestyles, and on relationships between neighbourhoods within large modern cities, this book aims to approach the study of "inhabiting modes" in Roman urban dwellings. Drawing on concepts common to historical anthropology and incorporating evidence from multiple lines of research (archaeological, iconographic, textual, and others), this volume aims to contribute to the invigoration of a social history of ancient housing through new research projects, publications, and digital tools from both individual and collaborative efforts. This field of study is currently undergoing a period of disciplinary revitalization and this volume is an opportunity to present the most recent work and to conduct a dialogue in an interdisciplinary perspective.
