Conference: Late Byzantine Cities

Bahçeşehir University, Istanbul, Turkey, 20-23 August 2019

Please note the new date above.

The late Byzantine world (1204-1461) was distinguished by the existence of multiple, competing, and interconnected cities in contrast to the centrality of Constantinople in previous periods. Late Byzantine cities in fact constituted centers, rather than marginal lands, as they are often portrayed in historical studies.
