I’ve just seen a conference that I really, really want to go to.

Land and natural resources in the Roman World, Brussels, 2011, May Thu. 26th ā€“ Sat. 28th. Roman Society Research Center (VUB/UGent).

The topics under discussion are:

  • The availability of natural resources
  • Ownership and Control
  • Organisation and modes of exploitation
  • Exploitation and processing of natural resources

Gosh!

Call for papers is up now, due 21st September. The conference is part of a wider project, which I think is really really interesting, which focusses on Factors of Production in the Roman World. This Land & Natural Resources conference is the first in three, the other two focussing on Labour and finally Capital. The intention is to produce collaborative monographs for each topic.
