Neighbours or Strangers?
Conflict, Negotiation, and Collaboration in Multicultural Communities
University of Tampere, 23-25 August 2018
The aim of the international Passages from Antiquity to the Middle Ages conferences is to bring together scholars of various fields of study to examine and discuss various phenomena during the longue durée from Antiquity to the Middle Ages. The first ‘Passages’ conference was organised at the Department of History and Philosophy, University of Tampere, in January 2003 – therefore this is the fifteenth year of the ‘Passages’ series. Since then there have been six conferences under the same concept, with topics varying from aging and death to social networks, religious participation and infirmity and health.
