How to Propose a Session

To encourage the integration of Byzantine studies within the scholarly community and medieval studies in particular, the Mary Jaharis Center for Byzantine Art and Culture seeks proposals for a Mary Jaharis Center sponsored session at the 22nd International Medieval Congress, University of Leeds, July 6–9, 2015. We invite session proposals on any topic relevant to Byzantine studies.

The thematic strand for the 2015 IMC is “Reform and Renewal.” See the IMC Call for Papers for additional information about the theme and suggested areas of discussion.

Session proposals should be submitted through the Mary Jaharis Center website site. The deadline for submission is August 31, 2014. Proposals should include:

  • Title
  • 100-word session abstract
  • Session moderator and academic affiliation
  • Information about the three papers to be presented in the session. For each paper: name of presenter and academic affiliation, proposed paper title, and 100-word abstract
  • CV

Successful applicants will be notified by mid-September if their proposal has been selected for submission to the International Medieval Congress. The Mary Jaharis Center will submit the session proposal to the International Medieval Congress and will keep the potential organizer informed about the status of the proposal.

If the proposed session is approved, the Mary Jaharis Center will reimburse session participants (presenters and moderator) up to $500 maximum for EU residents and up to $1000 maximum for those coming from outside Europe. Funding is through reimbursement only; advance funding cannot be provided. Eligible expenses include conference registration, transportation, and food and lodging. Receipts are required for reimbursement.

The session organizer may act as the moderator or present a paper. Moderators are not permitted to present a paper in the session. Participants may only present papers in one session.
