Announcements for the listserv may be sent to the Secretary via

The BSANA listserv exists to inform the Byzantine studies community of academic news and opportunities in the field. Such bulletins include the announcement of calls for papers, job listings, fellowships, exhibitions of Byzantine art, colloquia and symposia, obituaries of prominent Byzantinists, and other matters of academic interest. The listserv is expressly not intended for the dissemination of advertisements of a commercial nature, even if they relate to the field. The Secretary will have discretion in determining what is appropriate material for the listserv.

The BSANA Facebook Page is similarly intended to inform the community of scholarly news and opportunities, including those, such as the announcement of newly published books, that might be considered as having a commercial aspect. Friends of the BSANA Facebook Page may also post there, although the Governing Board and its representatives reserve the right to remove posts that are irrelevant or disruptive.
