Ivan Drpić and Tolga Uyar, organizers. "Monumental Painting in Byzantium and Beyond: New Perspectives." Byzantine Studies Colloquium at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, Washington, DC, November 4, 2016.

From the colloquium webpage:

The study of Byzantine monumental painting is ripe for critical assessment. While research into monumental pictorial art in countries such as Greece, Bulgaria, Serbia, the Republic of Macedonia, and increasingly Turkey remains a mainstay of art historical inquiry, in the United States this area of study has received less attention in recent years. Yet the monumental painting of the Byzantine world holds great potential for future research, not least because the material is tremendously rich and continues to be expanded with the discovery and publication of new pictorial ensembles.
