CANCELLED Joseph C. Miller Memorial Lecture by Laurens E. Tacoma

The lecture will discuss this topic with a small number of Greek funerary epigrams from the Roman period, which offer insights into the agency of slaves and freedmen that in on the one hand, the Roman population comprised very high numbers of slaves, subjected to unprecedented levels of institutionalized controls by which their previous identity was completely erased. On the other hand, the slave system was ‘open’. Slaves working in urban households had a real chance to be manumitted
