Description

Migration and barbarian identity: the changing landscape of post-Roman Europe

Professor Walter Pohl
University of Vienna and Director of the Institute of Medieval Research
Austrian Academy of Sciences

The study of migration and ethnic identity has always been bound up with the changing political landscape, and this is nowhere more true than in the study of the end of the Roman empire and the rise of post-Roman kingdoms in what became Medieval Europe. Across the 20th-century, historical views of ‘germanic’ and ‘barbarian’ identity often had far-reaching political consequences; in the 21st-century, with the rise of populism, understanding the rise of post-Roman kingdoms presents both old and new challenges.
