Byzantium at Ankara- Seminar Series

The Byzantine Seminar Series “Byzantium at Ankara” is an event organized and hosted in collaboration by Bilkent and Hacettepe University which will be held over the entire 2019/2020 Academic Year.

The object of the series of talks is to implement the interest and knowledge of the history and culture of the Byzantine Empire by bringing together local and visiting scholars in order to cover different aspects of the history, archaeology, and art history of the Byzantine Empire. Further it aims to sensitize and stimulate young scholars, graduate students and academicians to help generating awareness about innovative interdisciplinary approaches to Byzantine studies.
