Fellow, Byzantine Studies

In Dr. Andrea Nanetti’s research project at Dumbarton Oaks, news about the Byzantines is extracted from the Venetian Diaries (1402–1461) and compared with other Greek and Latin primary sources and relevant secondary literature in English, Modern Greek, German, French, Italian, and potentially, in more languages (e.g., Russian, Turkish) using the Dumbarton Oaks library, museum resources, the Dumbarton Oaks community, the Library of Congress, and the Smithsonian Institution. The expected final product of this research would be a book publishing these extracts, with English translation, critical commentary, and a historical introduction. One of the Dumbarton Oaks book series would be the first choice for publication, and an online companion will be designed and implemented on
