BSANA-Sponsored Sessions, 50th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Kalamazoo, May 14–17, 2015
This spring, the Byzantine Studies Association of North America (BSANA) sponsored two very successful sessions at the Congress of Medieval Studies at Kalamazoo. As part of an ongoing effort to increase the visibility of Byzantine studies and to encourage interaction with scholars in related fields, BSANA is eager once again to sponsor one or more sessions at the 50th Congress on Medieval Studies that will take place at Kalamazoo, MI, May 14-17, 2015. To this end, the Governing Board of BSANA invites members of the organization to submit proposals for BSANA-sponsored sessions on any theme relating to Byzantine studies to be given at Kalamazoo in 2015.
In order to achieve BSANA-sponsorship, proposals for sessions should be submitted by email to Glenn Peers, BSANA President no later than Wednesday, May 28, 2014. The proposal should include the panel organizer’s call for papers (approximately one page in length) and it may cite suggested speakers. The proposals will be reviewed by members of the Governing Board, and the organizer(s) of the panel(s) selected for sponsorship will be notified by BSANA by the end of next week. Final proposals for BSANA-sponsored sessions(s) must be submitted to the Kalamazoo organizers by June 1, 2014 for the 2015 conference.
Only proposals from BSANA members in good standing—those who have paid their 2014 dues—can be considered. To pay 2014 dues, please download the dues form from the BSANA website and submit it with your check in US dollars to the BSANA Treasurer listed at the bottom of the form.
