Byzantium Behind the Scenes: Power and Subversion
- Arts and Law, Research
The 43rd Spring Symposium of Byzantine Studies
The 43rd Spring Symposium explored the multiple ways in which Byzantine artists, rhetoricians, philosophers, theologians, satirists and political actors subverted and manipulated established rules and traditions. Through interdisciplinary dialogue the symposium aimed to either qualify or challenge commonly held perceptions of Byzantium and the Byzantines. The symposium consisted of eighteen main papers as well as more numerous communications which were wide open to any theme in Byzantine studies.
