The Summer School “Understanding Byzantium in the Balkans: Where the East
met / parted from the West” will explore the fascinating phenomenon of
Byzantium and its enduring impact on Medieval Balkans. The objective of the
Summer School is to address the complex socio-economic, cultural and
political processes that led to the transformation of the Roman world and
emergence of Byzantium and the Balkans as gravitational zones between East
and West. The leading international scholars in the field of Byzantine and
medieval Balkan studies will present the latest insights in addressing the
various questions concerning the re-evaluation of issues of group identity
and ethnogenesis in the Balkans, the concept of making of the Slavs, the
examination of Byzantium as Superpower and Soft Power and as an enduring
appeal to external elite, along with development of the Balkans as highway
and flashpoint between Latin West and Byzantine East. Through appliance of
new approach in historical and archaeological research the Summer School
will explore Byzantine and Balkan studies in the Western Europe and United
States and put them in a dialogue with those taking place in Southeastern
Europe. The main goal is to stimulate the critical thinking and to raise the
understanding of Byzantium and the Balkans and their place in international
history, grasping them not as a factor of East-West division but as a
integrative component of the European cultural history.
