CALL FOR PAPERS
INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC SYMPOSIUM “DAYS OF JUSTINIAN I”
SYMPOSIUM THEME FOR 2013
“MACEDONIA AND THE BALKANS IN THE BYZANTINE COMMONWEALTH”
Skopje 18-19 October, 2013
Organized by EURO-BALKAN UNIVERSITY, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia
with the financial support of the MINISTRY OF CULTURE of the Republic of
Macedonia

The International scientific symposium “Days of Justinian I” is an annual
interdisciplinary scientific forum for presentation of the latest research and
discussion of various aspects of Byzantine and Medieval Studies, which includes
the treatment and interpretation of Byzantine and Medieval cultural, historical
and spiritual heritage in contemporary European politics and history.
The theme of this year’s scientific symposium “Macedonia and the Balkans in
the Byzantine Commonwealth” is focused on analyzing the specifics, differences
and similarities of the Balkan region from the perspective of the impact of
Byzantine as a dominant political, cultural, religious and aesthetic model. The
purpose of the scientific meeting is to explore the concept of the Byzantine
Commonwealth and to define the place of Macedonia and the Balkans, treating
the phenomenon of Byzantium as Universal Empire being in a continuous
interaction and conflict with Western Christianity and Christian-Islamic Orient.

Papers are welcomed on various aspects that could include the following areas
of discussion:
• Byzantine Commonwealth: historical reality or modern construct?
• The place of Macedonia and the Balkans in the Byzantine Commonwealth;
• Byzantium as a cultural, aesthetic and religious model for political elites in the
Balkans;
• Balkan countries in the Byzantine “hierarchy of states”;
• Ethnicity and identity in the Middle Ages: the Byzantine civilization concept
and definition of “others” in the Balkans;
• Byzantine mission in the Balkans: religion, politics, diplomacy;
• The Balkans between Byzantium, Western Europe and the Orient;
• Byzantium after Byzantium: treatment and influence of Byzantine concepts
and practices on post-medieval successors in Macedonia and in the Balkans;
• The representation of Byzantium in art, literature, music and material culture
in the Balkans;
• Byzantine religious concept and modernity: tradition and influences;
• Byzantine cultural heritage: interpretation, restoration, protection;
• Archeological heritage and the research of the Byzantine history, society and
economy.
