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 58th International Congress on Medieval Studies, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, May 11–13, 2023. We invite session proposals on any topic relevant to Byzantine studies.
The 58th International Congress on Medieval Studies will include traditional in-person sessions, virtual sessions, and new blended-format sessions that make it possible for speakers to present and audiences to attend both in-person and online.
Session proposals must be submitted through the Mary Jaharis Center website (https://maryjahariscenter.org/sponsored-sessions/58th-icms). The deadline for submission is May 16, 2022.
If the proposed session is approved, the Mary Jaharis Center will reimburse a maximum of 4 session participants (presenters and moderator) up to $600 maximum for scholars based in North America and up to $1200 maximum for those coming from outside North America. 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. For scholars participating remotely, the Mary Jaharis Center will reimburse participants for conference registration.
