Teaching Day represents a unique opportunity for students to experience the work of a research institution through papers from leading scholars and panel discussions with Museum staff.

Program

The 2021 Teaching Day explores the themes of Byzantine identity as defined by those living inside the empire, how this changed for groups living on the other side of the frontier, and modern “ownership” of Byzantium, its heritage, and its legacy. 

Teaching Day represents a unique opportunity to experience the work of a research institution like Dumbarton Oaks. Participants hear papers from leading scholars and engage with Museum staff through panel discussions. 

Teaching Day is by invitation only.
