Dumbarton Oaks | From Kyivan Rus’ to Modern Ukraine: Virtual Conversations on History, Art, and Cultural Heritage

April 22 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

From Kyivan Rus’ to Modern Ukraine: Virtual Conversations on History, Art, and Cultural Heritage

A Lecture Series co-organized by Dumbarton Oaks in collaboration with North of Byzantium and Connected Central European Worlds, 1500–1700, from April through December, 2022

Ukraine’s history, art, and culture are endangered by the ongoing war. This lecture and conversation series by experts in the fields of history, art history, religion, archaeology, heritage, sociology, as well as museums and conservation, among others, presents the region’s rich historical and cultural complexity through its objects, sites, and monuments. A focus on the medieval and early modern periods featuring Greek, Latin, and Slavic contacts, brings to the fore critical evidence to counter modern misrepresentations of Ukraine’s history and cultural heritage. Presented in association with Dumbarton Oaks and North of Byzantium.
