Graduate Student Committee

The Graduate Student Committee strives to give greater agency to graduate students through a committee that reflects diversity in race, gender, geographic distribution, public/private institutions, and MA/PhD membership. We seek to grow graduate membership and create a strong graduate community, bringing together students in all related fields of Byzantine Studies. Additionally, we aim to increase graduate attendance at the BSC through a guaranteed session and the presentation of annual committee reports at the BSC member’s meeting.

Call For Proposals

The inaugural BSANA Graduate Committee invites proposals for a dedicated graduate student session to be held at the 47th Annual Byzantine Studies Conference (December 9–12, 2021). The live-streamed panel offers an opportunity for graduate students at all levels to present original research in an effort to enhance graduate participation at the BSC. This panel aims to showcase graduate work and highlight the exciting and diverse contributions being made by graduate students across all disciplines of Byzantine Studies, broadly construed.

The deadline to submit an abstract is May 1, 2021. For more information on abstract submission, please see the Call for Papers on the 2021 Byzantine Studies Conference page.

In 2021, the Byzantine Studies Association of North America formed a permanent Graduate Committee in response to the wishes of our graduate membership for more agency, visibility, and professional development. Members of the inaugural committee are:
