Understanding Barbarian Migrations through Genomic Research
An interdisciplinary conversation between humanities and the sciences
In this lecture, Patrick Geary (IAS, Princeton) will present the preliminary results of his collaborative, interdisciplinary genomic investigation into sixth-century population structures and movements between Pannonia and Italy. Nuclear DNA sequence data from cemeteries in modern Hungary and Italy reveal genetic groups that correlate with cultural data to suggest new ways of understanding the movement of barbarian warrior populations into Italy in the so-called migration age.
This event is open to all and organised by the TORCH Long History of Identity, Ethnicity, and NationhoodNetwork.
