Teaching Fellows' Day: Cross Talk

March 26, 2011

On Saturday, March 26, 2011, the Byzantine Studies program at Dumbarton Oaks hosted a day school event entitled ‘Cross Talks.’  The event was held in conjunction with the opening of the ‘Cross References’ exhibition at the Dumbarton Oaks Museum and its aim was to expose local college students to research by leading scholars in various fields of Byzantine studies and also allow them an intimate, first-hand experience of the new exhibition on the Cross.  The students were drawn from the classes of Dumbarton Oak’s two post-doctoral teaching fellows: Örgü Dalgiç at Catholic University and Jack Tannous at George Washington University.  In addition to students from these two institutions, also in attendance were members of the Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine community; a private art collector from London who lent several objects to the ‘Cross References’ exhibition also was present at the talks.
