Call for participants: Studying East of Byzantium IX: Networks
The Mashtots Professor of Armenian Studies at Harvard University and the Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture at Hellenic College Holy Cross in Brookline, MA, are pleased to invite abstracts for the next Studying East of Byzantium workshop: Studying East of Byzantium IX: Networks.
A three-part workshop that intends to bring together doctoral students and very recent PhDs studying the Christian East to reflect on how to reflect on the usefulness of networks in studying the Christian East, to share methodologies, and to discuss their research with workshop respondents, Zara Pogossian, University of Florence, and Joel Walker, University of Washington. The workshop will meet on November 18, 2022, February 17, 2023, and June 12–13, 2023, on Zoom. The timing of the workshop meetings will be determined when the participant list is finalized.
We invite all graduate students and recent PhDs working in the Christian East whose work considers, or hopes to consider, the theme of networks (microregional, regional, transregional, global, etc.) in their own research to apply.
Participation is limited to 10 students. The full workshop description is available on the East of Byzantium website (https://eastofbyzantium.org/upcoming-events/). Those interested in attending should submit a C.V. and 200-word abstract through the East of Byzantium website no later than September 19, 2022.
For questions, please contact East of Byzantium organizers, Christina Maranci, Mashtots Professor of Armenian Studies, THarvard University, and Brandie Ratliff, Director, Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture at firstname.lastname@example.org.
