Program in Medieval Studies

Join us for the final book club meeting of the semester on December 14th @ 6pm. We will discuss the new and much anticipated book by Chris Whickham, The Donkey and the Boat: Reinterpreting the Mediterranean Economy, 950-1180. 

The Medieval Studies book club is an opportunity to connect with graduate students from around the university who are interested in the medieval world. Anyone with an interest in the material and a commitment to participating in our informal discussion are invited to join!

Please email Albert Kohn at ak0429@princeton.edu by Monday, November 20th to RSVP. In your email, let Albert know if you would like a hard copy of the book (a digital copy is available in the library) and if you have any dietary restrictions. 

About The Donkey and the Boat: “A new account of the Mediterranean economy in the 10th to 12th centuries, forcing readers to entirely rethink the underlying logic to medieval economic systems. Chris Wickham re-examines documentary and archaeological sources to give a detailed account of both individual economies, and their relationships with each other.”

This meeting is for graduate students only.
