- What’s On
In autumn 2013 the Byzantine and Modern Greek Seminar of the Centre for Hellenic Studies will be presenting a series of lectures by Turkish byzantinists under the auspices of the BIAA (British Institute at Ankara), made possible through the support of the Turkish Embassy in London and the British Institute.
The study of Byzantium in Turkey has made huge leaps in recent years, even if the field remains less visible than the major fields of classical archaeology and Ottoman studies. Byzantium is now taught in several Turkish universities, and an increasing number of Turkish students choose to delve in its history and material or visual culture studying at home or abroad. The aim of this series is to present and make better known in the UK the achievements of Turkish scholarship with particular emphasis on new research projects, offering a global view of the trends prevailing in Byzantine studies in Turkey.
