East of Byzantium Inaugural Events, April 13 & 14
East of Byzantium is a new partnership between the Arthur H. Dadian and Ara Oztemel Chair of Armenian Art at Tufts University and the Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture at Hellenic College Holy Cross. It explores the cultures of the eastern frontier of the Byzantine Empire in the late antique and medieval periods.
Antony Eastmond (The Courtauld Institute of Art) will give the inaugural lecture, “East of Byzantium: Shifting Identities and New Approaches,” with a response by Anthony Kaldellis (The Ohio State University). Professor Eastmond will also lead a workshop for students, “Studying East of Byzantium,” designed to introduce the study of the Christian East.
Both events will be held at the Harvard Faculty Club, 20 Quincy Street, Cambridge, MA. More information and registration for the workshop can be found at eastofbyzantium.org/events.
