CFP: Studying Byzantium in the interwar years
Workshop at the XXIV International Conference of Byzantine Studies
Venice/Padua, August 22–27, 2022
Submissions due March 31, 2021
The present workshop aims to explore how Byzantine art history has developed at a key moment in European history, during the 1920s and the 1930s, focusing on the individual stories of Byzantine art historians in that period. Formed by pioneers of the field, scholars working on the art of the Eastern Roman Empire during the interwar period pursued their research in a world radically transformed by the First World War.
