Kinship, Alliance and Urban Space: the Genoese 'alberghi' in the Late Middle Ages (c. 1150 - c. 1450)

Project description

Exploring kinship in Genoa

In anthropology, kinship is the web of social relationships that form an important part of the lives of all humans in all societies, although its exact meanings even within this discipline are often debated. The EU-funded GenALMA project aims to provide novel perspectives and invaluable new data on kinship and the development of urban space by examining late medieval Genoa, one of the most socially vibrant cities during the foundational phase of contemporary Europe. The results of the project will be disseminated via conferences and workshops, publications in scholarly journals, and a blog.
