Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

This colloquium series is intended to bring together the doctoral students and the instructors affiliated with the Cluster ‘Ancient, Byzantine and Medieval Studies’ for the discussion of themes of common relevance. As a forum for regular meetings, it may also prepare the ground for further activities of the Cluster and its members.
The common theme to be explored this semester relates to the history of our respective disciplines and sub-disciplines (Forschungsgeschichte). What is the origin of the terminology we employ as ancient, Byzantine or medieval historians? Where do we draw the boundaries, chronologically, geographically? How has it changed over time? How has this affected the institutional contexts for our research (university departments, research centers, scholarly journals, funding opportunities)?
