History Studies welcomes submissions for its June 2015 special issue on the History and Civilization of the Byzantine/Eastern Roman Empire. History Studies Culture and Art Representative Gizem Kordatos Samira will be the guest editor of this issue. Founded along the shores of the Bosporus and the Golden Horn in 330 AD, the beloved city of Constantinople or Istanbul served for centuries not only as the capital of the Eastern Roman or Byzantine Empire but also as a center of art, knowledge, and culture. With its vibrant civilization, the Byzantine Empire provided alternative modes of religion, politics, and philosophy to the Christian world for over a millennium throughout the Dark Ages of Europe. The Byzantine Empire left marks on the cultural, religious, and architectural heritage of many countries from Turkey, Greece, and Russia to Egypt, Israel, and Syria. Despite its wide-spread cultural influence on three continents, the history and civilization of the Byzantine Empire does not receive as much scholarly attention as it deserves. This special issue aims to bring more scholarly attention to the history and civilization of the Byzantine Empire. We welcome articles from a wide array of disciplines covering history, geography, and theology, archeology, and art history, law and architecture of Byzantium. The special issue will primarily include articles focusing on the history and civilization of Byzantium in Anatolia but articles covering the history and civilization of the Byzantine Empire outside Anatolia will also be considered for publication either in the special issue or in the subsequent issues.
Possible subjects may include but are not limited to:
Deadline to submit papers: April 15, 2015.
