During the course of my fellowship, I have researched an article dealing with the problematic issue of the labor organization in North Africa under the late Roman, Vandal and Byzantine rules. This essay has been published with the title “The Missing Factor: Economy and Labor in Late Roman North Africa, 400-600 CE”, in Journal of Late Antiquity, 11, 2 (2018), 396-431. In parallel, I have also introduced and edited a collection of essays aimed at assessing John Haldon’s last achievement, The Empire that would not die: The Paradox of the Eastern Roman Survival, Cambridge, Mass. Harvard University Press, 2016. The collection has been published under the collective title “The Empire that would not die: A Symposium”, in Journal of European Economic History, 46, 2 (2017).
During the course of my second semester as fellow, I have completed my monograph on state, taxation and power in the late Roman West, currently in publication at Cambridge University Press. At the same time, I have also introduced and edited a collection of essays presented at a workshop on the Carolingian manorial economy held under the aegis of the Center at University of Tübingen in June of 2018. The collection has been published under the collective title “Beyond the Manorial Economy: Peasant Labour and Mobility in Carolingian and Post-Carolingian Europe”, Journal of European Economic History, 48, 3 (2019).
