(p.201) Byzantine Scholarship: Twelfth-Century Constantinople, Twentieth-Century Britain
A Century of British Medieval Studies

Margaret Mullett

British Academy

This chapter examines twentieth century Byzantine studies in Great Britain. It explains that British Byzantinists have been negatively affected by the restructuring of university departments, increasing educational emphasis on vocational subjects, and declining academic salaries. In the British context Byzantine studies could clearly be described as a small subject with disproportionate international influence and it is not clear whether they would ever regain the authority and influence in the academic establishment that they had in 1903.

Keywords:   Byzantine studies, Great Britain, Byzantinists, academic salaries, university restructuring, international influence
