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 Nominations

The elections committee of the Byzantine Studies Association of North America Graduate Student Committee invites nominations (including self-nominations) to the committee for terms beginning at the forthcoming BSC in Cleveland, December 9–12, 2021.

As per our by-laws, the elections committee, formed by the four outgoing members, seeks nominees who represent diversity in race, gender, geographic distribution, public/private institutions, and MA/PhD membership within the field of Byzantine studies. If elected at the 2021 meeting, new members will serve until the 2023 meeting, joining the four remaining members to form a board of eight in total.
