Citizens and Commoners in ancient Greece, Rome, China

McGill University, October 23 to 24, 2014

Introduction

In the first gathering of an envisioned string of meetings, we approach the cluster of “People”. We will explore the following key themes : the people as a citizen body and institution, their participation in political life of the community ; the collective identity of people and their conceived ethnic origins ; people and gender ; elites vs. commoners ; the public discourse ; the public discourse on the people and rhetoric as well as free speech.

The time period under investigation is from the Late-Warring States through the Eastern Han Period (4th century BCE to the 1st century CE). In the Mediterranean world, we are looking at an equivalent from the late Archaic period to the early Roman empire (6th century BCE to the 1st century CE). To allow for a meaningful comparison, contributions will focus on key aspects and ‘the big picture’. They are not intended to be comprehensive or all-inclusive, but axiomatic.

The workshop is sponsored by the Towards Citizenship Trust.
