I.B.Tauris New Directions in Byzantine Studies will showcase the work of writers who are setting new agendas, working at the frontiers of the field and, most importantly, the next generation of Byzantine scholarship. Our key goals are to:
• Explore Byzantium’s peripheries (geographically, socially).
• Focus on linguistic and translation skills – Armenian and Syriac are especially under-privileged.
• Foster a series with broad, inter-disciplinary bent.
• Promote innovative research methods.
• Demonstrate the empire as dynamic, complex and fluid – the crossroads between East and West.
• Present content such that, although monographs, books will appeal to a general readership when released as a paperback.
• Archaeology and material culture.
• Economy and trade.
• Art and architecture.
• Crusades and warfare.
• International diplomacy.
• The history of Christianity; developments and schisms; papal politics.
• Religious tolerance; religious exchange; religious persecution.
• Political development and reform.
• Legal development and reform.
• Philosophy and the history of ideas.
• Developments in social history.
