Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies

The Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies is the only research centre in the UK which brings all these subjects together within a single unit. The Centre is located in the department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology, School of History and Cultures, College of Arts and Law at the University of Birmingham.

The Centre’s staff cover between them a wide range of fields and expertise in respect of both the history and the languages of the East Mediterranean region, including: late Roman and early, middle and late Byzantine history, culture and archaeology, Islamic history of the medieval and modern periods; Turkish and central Asian history from the early medieval to modern period; Balkan, particularly Greek, history up to the present day; international relations, particularly between the Great Powers and Balkan and Near Eastern States from the mid-nineteenth century; and modern Greek literature and culture. A strong postgraduate and postdoctoral community reinforces our active and varied research culture.
