Daily Deeds and Practiced Patterns: Approaches to Studying Daily Life and Habitual Practices in the Ancient World

Uploaded Image

Mellon Graduate Workshop 2013-2015


Workshop Organizers: Linda Gosner and Katherine Harrington


Summary: The patterns of daily life are vitally important to our understanding of the past. What people do to make ends meet, to worship their gods, and to take care of their families and property help define a culture and create identity. However, the routine practices of non-elite people, often occurring in non-monumental spaces, have not frequently received significant scholarly attention. Our workshop aims to examine the ephemeral aspects of the lives of those now underrepresented in the archaeological and textual record. We will consider their households, craft production, agricultural and rural activities, and examine how these seemingly mundane tasks create social networks and impact group identity.
