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.
This workshop invites early graduate students (considering their options for research topics) to discuss the place of various forms of diversity in the region and consider topics which cross the communal and linguistic boundaries imposed on premodern history by most graduate education today. The goal is to expose graduate students to the region’s diversity early in their academic trajectory to allow them to acquire the skills necessary to pursue wide-ranging research. The workshop will take place May 17-21, 2021 via Zoom. Submit your proposals by March 26. Notifications of successful applications will be made by April 5 or shortly thereafter.
