University of Edinburgh, Meadows Lecture Theatre, Old Medical School, Teviot Place, Edinburgh EH8 9AG


The 2018 symposium will be dedicated to the later Byzantine world, taking its starting point from the cataclysmic events of 1204.

Especially in recent years, the late Byzantine period has seen an increasing amount of exciting research activity: from continuing Grundlagenforschung (palaeography, critical editions, translations and commentaries) via the reevaluation of key social, political, and economic practices to the application of new methods such as network studies or sociolinguistics, our understanding of the society and politics of the final two hundred and fifty years of Roman rule in the eastern Mediterranean have much increased.

Confirmed speakers include Dimiter Angelov, Michael Angold, Daniele Bianconi, Marie-Helene Congourdeau, Nikolaos Chrissis, Andrea Cuomo, Sharon Gerstel, Dimitri Kastritsis, Tonia Kiousopoulou, Ruth Macrides, Paul Magdalino, Christos Malatras, Ekaterini Mitsiou, Nevra Necipoglu, Johannes Pahlitzsch, Inmaculada Perez Martin, Antonio Rigo, Alexander Riehle, Teresa Shawcross, Dionysios Stathakopoulos, Ida Toth, and Ionut Alexandru Tudorie.
