Reconsidering the Concept of Decline and the Arts of the Palaiologan Era

Friday 24th (14:00) - Saturday 25th February 2017 (17:00)

One and a half day Symposium & Workshop, held at the University of Birmingham.

This one day and a half conference combines a symposium and a workshop. The aim is to examine and contextualise the artistic and cultural production of the geopolitical centres that were controlled by or in contact with the late Byzantine Empire. This conference will explore the many intellectual implications that are encoded in the innovative artistic production of the Palaiologan Era often simplified by a rigid understanding of what is Byzantine and what is not.
