City Making in Byzantine Athens

Sunday, October 16 2022 3:00pm

Sabine Hall G90

Please join us for the Archaeological Institute of America Lecture, “City Making in Byzantine Athens,” on Sunday, October 16, 2022 at 3:00pm in Sabine Hall G90.

Dr. Fotini Kondyli, NEH Horace W. Goldsmith Distinguished Teaching Professor of Byzantine Art and Archaeology, McIntyre Department of Art, University of Virginia

Dr. Fontini’s work seeks to reconstruct the topography and spatial layout of Byzantine Athens (4th-15th centuries CE), and to better understand contemporary living conditions and socio-economic activities in the city. Her lecture will focus on city-making processes and particularly on the role of non-elite, ordinary people in them. Fontini sees Byzantine cities as highly political environments and explores city-making activities as political actions. She will also examine changes in the urban environment that point to ordinary people’s involvement and consider the impact of such activities in enhancing their social capital and political influence.
