Ethnic Terminologies in the Early Middle Ages

24-25 January 2019

International Workshop

Seminar Room 49 & 50
Hollandstraße 11-13, 1st floor
A-1020 Wien


How were peoples, ethnic groups and tribes called in different languages in the Early Middle Ages? And how did this semantic field change over time? This workshop is intended to access this controversial (but also under-researched) field from a historical perspective. To what extent is our concept of "ethnic" adequate to the meaning of these terms in this period?
