Byzantine Studies Symposium: "Rethinking Empire"
April 21–22, 2017

Dumbarton Oaks
The Music Room
1703 32nd Street NW
Washington, D.C. 20007

Dimiter Angelov and Paul Magdalino, Symposiarchs

What do we mean when we call Byzantium an empire? A flurry of studies in recent years by historians of other hegemonic civilizations have situated empire and imperialism as historical phenomena across different periods and geographical areas. Until now, the involvement of Byzantinists in this reevaluation has been relatively marginal.

“O Latest Born and Loveliest Vision Far”
The 2016 Virginia Wesleyan College Symposium on The Romantics and the Classics 
November 17-19, 2016

Description

Even from their distant vantage point at the waning of the eighteenth and the inception of nineteenth century, the English Romantics and their circle bequeath a powerful legacy to the modern world: Shelley's utopian schemes and dreams of equality for the oppressed, Mary Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Women, Wordsworth's pantheistic Anglicanism, Byron's rakish peregrinations in Italy and Greece.... all challenged conventional mores while at the same time calling more plodding and conventional British Tories to a higher standard of political fairness and social justice.
