Armenia and Byzantium


The ‘Armenia & Byzantium: Perspectives on Cultural and Political Relations’ is a two-day interdisciplinary workshop convened by Dr David Zakarian and Professor Theo Maarten van Lint. It intends to bring together early career researchers working in the fields of Armenian and Byzantine studies and to give them the opportunity to discuss their research with senior specialists in their field. This workshop will continue the successful collaboration between Oxford and Vienna, which began last year in the University of Vienna with the workshop ‘Armenia & Byzantium without Borders’ convened by Dr Emilio Bonfiglio and Professor Claudia Rapp within the framework of ‘Moving Byzantium: Mobility, Microstructure and Personal Agency’ project. The keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Christina Maranci, Arthur H. Dadian and Ara Oztemel  Professor of Armenian Art and Architecture at Tufts University.

There is no registration fee. Due to space limitations at the venue, please contact the event organiser directly at if you wish to attend.
