25th May, 2023 (room C128/Sala de Actos)
26th May, 2023 (A202/Anf. IV)
This event proposes a discussion of the forms of democratic participation encountered by the people of the urban world of the late Middle Ages (XIVth to XVIth centuries). Here lived and worked different social groups, distinguished by their economic and professional status, but also by their greater or lesser capacity to intervene in the management of the res publica. For this purpose, we will host a roundtable discussion (May 24th) followed by a conference (May 25th and 26th). In these events, we will count on the participation of 5 keynote speakers and 8 lecturers, distinguished historians on these themes.
