Cappadocia in Context

Date: 9 - 23 June 2019

An International Program for Graduate Students in Byzantine Studies

The program will take place in Cappadocia, Nevşehir from June 9th till 23rd. Through this rigorous program that combines guided site visits and thematic explorations with lectures and seminar presentations, participants will explore ways to “read” the landscape and its monuments, as well as ways to write a regional history based on the close analysis of sites and monuments. 


Please kindly get in contact with for further inquiry.

About the Program

The program will explore ways of contextualizing the rich artistic and cultural heritage of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Cappadocia. Within its breathtaking volcanic landscape, Cappadocia preserves extensive rock-cut features from the Byzantine period, including more than a thousand rock-cut churches and chapels (one-third of which preserve significant elements of their painted decoration), as well as monasteries, houses, villages, towns, cemeteries, and fortresses. The region is unrivaled in terms of its material culture, but because it lacks a written history, the monuments of Cappadocia remain poorly known to most Byzantinists. 

The program is open to students enrolled in MA and Ph.D. programs. 

Having attended the program last year, ANAMED 2018–2019 PhD Fellow Hugh Jeffery wrote about his impressions on the program and Cappadocia for ANAMED Blog.
