Proposals are invited for a session at the 41st annual Byzantine Studies Conference to be sponsored by the International Center of Medieval Art (ICMA) at the upcoming conference in New York this fall, 22–25 October 2015, taking place across multiple institutions. Thanks to the generosity of the Kress Foundation, the ICMA might be able to provide travel and hotel funds for the speakers at such a session up to a maximum of $600 for US residents, and up to $1200 for speakers coming from abroad. Every speaker must be an ICMA member at the time of application.
To be properly considered, the proposed session should relate to both art history and Byzantine studies. The BSC warmly welcomes the participation of western and Islamic art historians.

Society of Architectural Historians 69th Annual International Conference, Pasadena/Los Angeles, April 6–10, 2015
At its 2016 Annual International Conference in Pasadena/Los Angeles, SAH will offer a total of 36 paper sessions. The Society invites its members, including graduate students and independent scholars, representatives of SAH chapters and partner organizations, as well as future members to chair a session at the conference.
Since the principal purpose of the Annual International Conference is to inform the conference attendees of the general state of research in architectural history and related disciplines, session proposals covering every period in the history of architecture and all aspects of the built environment, including landscape and urban history, are encouraged.
Sessions may be theoretical, methodological, thematic, interdisciplinary, pedagogical, revisionist or documentary in premise and have broadly conceived or more narrowly focused subjects. Sessions that embrace cross-cultural, trans-national and/or non-Western topics are particularly welcome. In every case, the subject should be clearly defined in critical and historiographical terms, and should be substantiated by a distinct body of either established or emerging scholarship.
Proposals will be selected on the basis of merit and the need to organize a well-balanced program. Topics exploring the architecture of Pasadena/Los Angeles and Southern California are encouraged. As Los Angeles serves as a global/local transportation hub, SAH also encourages international scholars to submit session proposals.
Since late submissions cannot be considered, it is recommended that proposals be submitted and their receipt confirmed well before the deadline. The Conference Co-Chair cannot be responsible for last-minute submissions that fail posting in the online portal.

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.
