Damián Fernández

Damián Fernández completed his undergraduate studies in Buenos Aires, Argentina (Licenciado in History) and later pursued his graduate studies in North America (MA in Religious Studies, UBC, Canada and PhD in History, Princeton University). He is particularly interested in economic and social history of the ancient world, from both theoretical and empirical perspectives. His current field of research focuses on late antique Iberia and the social and economic transformations occurring in the Atlantic areas of the peninsula between the late empire and the rise of the Visigothic kingdom. He studies the aristocratic economic and social strategies vis-à-vis the changing forms of state from the archaeological and literary evidence. His research project at ISAW involves the study of the Atlantic regions of western Europe and north Africa between the late third century and the dissolution of imperial authority in the fifth century.
