Late Antiquity and Byzantine Studies

The aim of this research group is to foster collaboration and exchange among scholars working in the field of Late Antiquity and Byzantine studies.

Coordinators

  • Prof. Dr Peter Van Nuffelen (Ghent University)
  • Dr Emilie van Opstall (VU University Amsterdam)

Description

The Low Countries have a strong tradition and reputation in the field of Late Antiquity, but the expertise available has never been gathered. This OIKOS research group favours collaboration and exchange among scholars working not only in the field of Late Antiquity but also in Byzantine studies. It aims to be a platform and a point of contact on a national and international level. Period-based, the research group will be interdisciplinary and gather linguists, students of literature, (art)historians, philosophers, archaeologists, theologians, etc.

Thematic meetings will be organized for the group as a whole (once a year) as well as for smaller units. The aim of the group is to be able to offer specific training for PhD students writing dissertations in the fields of Late Antiquity and Byzantine studies. Byzantine Studies are explicitly included, which enables collaboration with other organisations such as the AIEB (Association Internationale des Etudes Byzantines) and facilitates international funding for research projects and the organization of conferences.
