Forty-Sixth Annual Byzantine Studies Conference
The Forty-sixth Annual Byzantine Studies Conference (BSC) will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, from Thursday, October 22, through Sunday, October 25, 2020. The meeting will be hosted by Case Western Reserve University. The local arrangements chair is Elizabeth Bolman (Department of Art and Art History).
The BSC is the annual forum for the presentation and discussion of papers on every aspect of Byzantine Studies and on related topics relevant to the field. Conference attendance is open to all, regardless of nationality or academic status.
The Program Committee invites proposals for papers on all topics and in all disciplines related to Byzantine Studies, broadly construed. While there are no set themes for the BSC, the Program Committee is especially interested in papers that offer larger commentaries on the field, or situate Byzantium/Byzantine developments in a larger historical, regional, and/or global contexts. With the goal of engaging a wider audience, we encourage panels that forge a dialogue between Byzantine studies and cognate fields.
Paper proposals for the 2020 BSC may be in the form of individual papers, or of complete panels. Instructions for both, using the EasyChair system, are included below. Abstracts for papers should be no more than 500 words, and should be written to be accessible to a broad audience of readers on the Program Committee. All proposed papers must be substantially original and never have been published previously. Each contributor may deliver only one paper.
The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2020.
