Shifting Cities in the Iberian Peninsula, III BC-IX AD – Hamburg, 11/2022

Internationales Kolloquium. Aus dem Ankündigungstext der Veranstalter«Shifting cities is a little known, but surprisingly frequent phenomenon throughout the history of urbanisation on the Iberian Peninsula during the first millennium. Physical displacement of urban centres often implies not only a discontinuity in terms of location but also a change in the layout, i.e. the infrastructure of the city. The ex novo foundation requires its inhabitants to adapt to new ways of intramural and extramural life, due to a new definition of public and private spaces, and to a different perception of the territory. Who is responsible for these changes? Is it a decision taken at the local level or by political powers? What are the reasons behind these dramatic changes? When they occur, are these changes related to the conquest of a territory? What do we know about how the population perceives these displacements? Are there structural differences between shifting cities in Roman times and in the Andalusian period? The aim of this international colloquium is to approach this phenomenon in a cross-cultural way, taking as references the ancient and medieval eras, as well as historical and archaeological data to facilitate the debate from a multidisciplinary perspective.»
