Lecture: Rena van den Bergh

Professor Rena van den Bergh (University of South Africa) will give a guest lecture on Monday, January 25th, 2016, at 4 pm. The lecture, titled “Communication and publicity of the law in Rome”, will explore how public policy such as law was communicated through the Roman empire, the means by which imperial letters, rescripts and laws spread via the road network and how this was affected by the spread of Roman citizenship in the provinces. The lecture will be held at the main building of Social Sciences (Unioninkatu 37), in the room number 1094.
