Abstract

In this, the first of three linked sessions on Borders beyond Borders, we aim primarily to break down the divisions between fields: Medieval and Byzantine Studies, between these and Islamic studies, and then these three and Eurasian history as a whole. Similarly, we aim to break down the borders between disciplines: history, literature, archaeology and gender studies. This panel focuses on Byzantium beyond Byzantium, with papers focusing on Calabria at the crossroads of cultures, Architecture in Milutin’s Serbia, Byzantine agents in Turkish lands, and the interplay between Latin, Byzantine, and Mamluk trading networks.
