Migration was an important feature of the ancient Greek world and practically every Greek city was home to people who had migrated (including involuntarily) from elsewhere in the Greek world and beyond—or were the descendants of immigrants. Migrants and Membership Regimes in the Ancient Greek World (400 BCE - 100 CE) joins researchers from Marburg and Copenhagen Universities in investigating how rules, regulations, values and attitudes shaped the immigrant experience and how such 'membership regimes' were themselves affected by migration.
