Do you want to explore the rich artistic and cultural heritage of Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Cappadocia? Within the region's spectacular volcanic landscape are dozens of rock-cut settlements, including hundreds of painted, rock-cut churches, chapels, monasteries, houses, villages, towns, fortresses, and underground cities.
Through a program that combines lectures, guided site visits, thematic explorations, and seminar presentations, the workshop will explore ways to "read" the landscape and its monuments, as well as ways to write a regional history based on the close analysis of sites and monuments.
Professor Robert Ousterhout and from University of Pennsylvania and Tolga Uyar from the University of Paris I, with the contribution of some esteemed faculty members from Koc University, will present Cappadocia through a combination of lectures, seminar discussions, site visits and field trips. A camera, sturdy walking shoes, and a taste for exploration are essential!
