MEMO discussion group

The second meeting of the 2013 MEMO reading group will take place on Wednesday 6 March at 1:00pm, in James Callaghan B-04.  

Speaker: Dr John Law.

Topic: ‘The despots: for and against!’

Dr Law has kindly offered to share some source material from Later Medieval Italy, offering differing views of the ‘despots’; sources which are strongly for or against rulers, and will provoke discussion of how the peoples of later medieval Italy perceived authority.

(Reading materials can be found on the MEMO Blackboard site)
