The Byzantine Studies Research Center of Bogazici University is pleased to announce the organization of an online reading group entitled Critical Theory for Byzantine Studies during Fall 2020. Intended as a platform to discuss critical problems and theoretical questions that are (or might be) relevant to Byzantine studies, the reading group will be moderated by Dr. Matthew Kinloch (Bogazici University-Villa I Tatti Joint Fellow) in four biweekly sessions to be held in October and November 2020. The language of readings and discussions will be English. Students and scholars of all levels interested in Byzantine studies are welcome. Participation is by registration. The first session, Who’s who in (Byzantine) narratives?, will be held on Monday, 19 October 2020, at 16:00 (Istanbul time).
Those who wish to participate in the reading group are kindly requested to register by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line Reading Group.
