Diogenes Journal

Since its launch in January 2014, Diogenes is an open-access and peer-review online journal edited by the postgraduate students at the Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman, and Modern Greek Studies, University of Birmingham.

It aims to bring together postgraduate and early career researchers and provide a forum at which they can further develop their research ideas and communicate them to a general audience.

The articles published in Diogenes cover a wide range of research interests, yet they all fall under the umbrella of the often-separate fields of Byzantine, Ottoman and Modern Greek Studies. We look forward to any article that actively engages with any of these fields, from universities in the UK and abroad. It is published twice a year: in April and October.

Therefore, indicative topics cover yet are not limited to:

  • Byzantine archaeology, material culture, art history and textual analyses
  • Ottoman history, archaeology, literature and art
  • Modern Greek history, literature, film, pop culture, and politics
  • Book Reviews in BOMGS
  • Theoretical Reflections and Methodological explorations on BOMGS

Before submitting, please consult the author manuscript guidelines
