Highlights for Students

Conferences, colloquia and dayschools
The AHRB Centre has its own programme of events: dayschools like Gender (Sussex, 2001), Dreams (Belfast 2002), colloquia like: Masculinity (Sussex, 2002), Skylitzes (Belfast, 2002). AHRB Centre conferences are planned as follows: Art, Archaeology and Text (Newcastle, 10 December 2004), Medieval Friendship (Belfast, 2004), Performance (Belfast, 2005). Book launches are held and exhibitions planned (currently a display of Macedonian costume to connect with a day-school on costume, and a display of icons from Ireland in the Ulster Museum, Belfast); and in October 2002 there was a major reception to inaugurate the Benefactors' Library. Throughout 2003 there were a series of events to record and publicise the painting of the meta-Byzantine mural in the Institute of Byzantine Studies' yard
