Ethnogenesis: A Contested Model of Early Medieval Europe
Audio podcast given at Macquarie University (February 2007)
Length: 20 minutes
This podcast is a discussion between Professor Felice Lifshitz, History Compass’ medieval Europe editor, and Dr Andrew Gillett, a published History Compass author. They examine Dr Gillet’s published essay, ‘Ethnogenesis: A Contested Model of Early Medieval Europe’ and ask: What is ethnogenesis? What are the questions of evidence and interpretation for interested Medievalists? How do we draw the attention of non-Medievalists to the historiographic debate over interpretative models for one of the major revolutions in western history?
